It’s finally time for the wedding proposal. Whether your style is an elaborate video-worthy production, or you prefer a more intimate approach, this promises to be one of the most memorable days of your life. Planning a proposal that will be meaningful to sweetheart is the most important thing. From the wedding proposal to the wedding itself, Griffin’s Floral Designs will be with you every step of the journey, providing stunning florals that showcase your love and devotion.
Consider the Season: More engagements happen in December than any other month, so if you are one of the many planning to propose this month, you can use the decorations and landscape surrounding you. Hang the ring from a glittering ribbon or suspend in a clear ornament, and place on the tree. If there is snow on the ground, scatter red rose petals along the path to your proposal site. If you are going to a party with a Santa Claus in attendance, have him call up your sweetheart for a gift he found in his sack. Have fun with the holiday!
Capitalize on the Scenery: Here in Columbus, we have some pretty amazing backdrops for a wedding proposal. The Whetstone Park of Roses is a favorite spot, with beautifully manicured grounds year round. During the winter, you can be assured of finding a beautiful and intimate spot to pop the question. Mirror Lake at Ohio State is especially pretty this time of year, with the “Light the Lake” event. White lights adorn the trees surrounding the lake for a beautiful photo opportunity. Also at Ohio State is the iconic “Long Walk”, reserved for only the truest and most steadfast of romantics.
Be Sensitive: If your bride-to-be (or husband-to-be) doesn’t like being in the spotlight – don’t subject them to a public spectacle. Consider their personality, ask friends and family what they think, and ensure that the proposal is just right for them. If you are planning a quiet proposal but don’t want to carry the flowers (and give it away), have a friend drop the flowers off just prior to your arrival so that they are waiting in your location when you get there.
The wedding professionals at Griffin’s Floral Designs have worked with many Columbus area couples, from the day of the proposal to the wedding day. For all of your wedding floral needs, call us today for a consultation, and let’s get to work designing a beautiful journey.
