You’ve done it, you’ve found the one you want to spend the rest of your life with! And as you scroll through your different news feeds, you’re probably starting to see the influx of the cutest proposal videos, photos of your friends donning their newest bling rings, and relationship statuses switching up from “in a relationship” to “engaged.” Love is in the air, and you’re ready to take part in it all by proposing to your future life partner!
First thing’s first, however: flowers. They’re perfect for any occasion, but they’re especially important when it comes to letting your significant other know that you love them. So why not have flowers help you with your proposal?
We know that every proposal is unique depending on your partner’s personality and interests, but our proposal ideas (that include some of nature’s brightest blooms) are sure to help you get the ball rolling!
You can never have too many flowers, and the new flower bomb trend proves just that! These installations have been greeting pedestrians in different cities around the world with petals that pop. Bus stops, trash cans, abandoned store fronts – all have been graced with a lush display of some of the most colorful flowers.
Not only are these “flower bombs” just so aesthetically pleasing, we think they make the perfect setup for a proposal spot. Partner with some local florists (or invest in some wholesale flowers for bundles of fun!) and gather your friends and family to help spruce up a gazebo, window display, or even a spot that has sentimental value to your fiancé-to-be. Then the plan commences. You could start off by playing it cool: take your significant other on a dinner date to their favorite restaurant, suggest going out for some dessert or just a casual stroll around town, and lead them to the decorated spot where they’ll come face-to-face with a beautiful floral “explosion”!
We’d say this is the perfect opportunity for you to get down on one knee.
Under the Stars
Take stargazing to the next level and bring your significant other to a planetarium where you can view the night sky together. If possible, request a private reservation if you prefer having some alone time, but if you don’t mind the audience, then join in on a show open to the public.
Before the date, check with the planetarium to see if they can customize the star alignment on their display to spell out the big question. With permission of course, decorate the theater with petals of your partner’s favorite flower. Roses are the popular choice for most couples just because they’re the classic floral beauties. Create a makeshift path from the entrance with colorful petals and lead your fiancé-to-be to a seat decorated with (you guessed it) even more flowers – their very own floral throne! Then watch from below as the screen pops the big question for you in the most celestial fashion – you may now kiss your fiancé!
The Glam Outdoors
If you and your partner are all about the great outdoors but not about the nit-and-grit of camping, then glamping is the perfect middleman for you! Glamping elevates the camping experience by offering an element of glamour on top of being hands-on with Mother Nature.
Maybe your significant other really enjoyed the hiking trips you used to take together, but you also want to go above-and-beyond the generic woodsy vacation. Reserve a night away from the hustle and bustle of the city life in a shepherd hut, teepee, treehouse, or luxurious tent. There you can distract your partner by having them run a quick errand while you decorate the facilities with candles and flowers until they return.
