Spring has arrived and love is in the air! More marriage proposals happen during the spring months than at any other time of year. If you’ve been thinking you’re ready to pop the big question, the wedding experts at Griffin’s Weddings are here to encourage you and offer some creative ways to take advantage of springtime in all its glory. Consider one of these possibilities for your wedding proposal and give your partner something to talk about for years!
During a Hike
If you and your partner love the outdoors, going for a hike during springtime is a natural choice that is unlikely to set off any clues to your intentions. Choose a favorite spot or scout out someplace new, like Hayden Falls Park and its majestic waterfalls ahead of time so you can choose your picturesque scene ahead of time.
Take her breath away as you ask her to marry you in front of a stunning sunset at North Bank Park with the Columbus city skyline in the background. She’ll be yours forever, and might even consider having your wedding in the same location!
In a Garden
With so many beautiful flowers in bloom this time of year, it only makes sense to declare your love to your sweetheart while surrounded by fragrant blossoms. A sophisticated setting like Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens will make this dream come true for both of you.
On a Boat Ride
Choose the serenity of nature in vibrant bloom around you when you paddle out to the center of a nearby lake for your special moment. Be sure you and your partner are comfortable on the water and be sure the ring doesn’t go overboard!
At a Picnic
A picnic in spring is such a natural, obvious way to spend the afternoon that she’ll never suspect you have bigger plans. Bring her favorite treats, an extra blanket in case there’s a cool breeze, and simply take your time enjoying all of nature around you as you profess your love.
Under the Stars
Pledge your love to one another under the stars at one of the many observation sites in and around Columbus. Our favorite is Scioto Audubon Metro Park, perfect for evening observations and star-gazing as well as picture-perfect backdrops for photos.
At a Ball Game
For avid sports fans, there’s nothing quite like spring training to get you in the mood for warmer days ahead. Baseball brings everyone outside to enjoy the blooming spring weather and sets the stage for a positive, uplifting afternoon for everyone. If you and your intended love the game of baseball, think about surprising her with a public proposal at a Columbus Clippers game, the minor league affiliate team to the Cleveland Indians.
On a Scavenger Hunt
With Easter right around the corner, a scavenger hunt can be a great way to get outside, enjoy nature in springtime and find your way back to one another after a fun scavenger hunt. You might even think about hiding clues inside plastic Easter eggs as a theme. Let the clues lead her to find you waiting for her on bended knee.
