Wedding proposals take a considerable amount of planning, and proposals today are becoming more complicated and grandiose. Flowers, classic symbols of romance, can play a powerful secondary role that can easily set the romantic mood. Below are some ways to level up your upcoming proposal with flowers.
- A Bouquet of Flowers
You can’t go wrong with the classic bouquet of red Roses, the most well-known symbol of love and romance. Better yet is a bouquet of your beloved’s favorite flowers, or a bouquet of flowers in your fiance-to-be’s favorite color.
Simply handing the bouquet at the exact moment you propose is not the only way to do this. You can send the flowers to her while she’s at work. It’s enough to seem like a normal romantic gesture, but it’s also mysterious enough to not give your real intentions away. To make things less of a hassle for you, you can order and receive flowers on the same day via the same day delivery option from Fiesta Flowers, Plants and Gifts.
- A Trail of Flower Petals
Lead your girlfriend to a romantic set-up using a fragrant trail of flower petals! A carpet of petals will easily fit in with other decorations in the room by simply matching the color of the petals with the general mood. Don’t forget to also make the proposal surprise at the end of the flower trail worth it.
- Flower Language
Have a timeless Victorian flower language say what you might be too nervous to. If your fiance-to-be studies the language (or at least knows some basics), you can use this to your advantage. All it takes is one flower–or a dozen, depending on what you want to express. To make the whole piece even more romantic, bundle your mix of meaningful flowers using the engagement ring and watch as your girlfriend decodes what you’ve just given her. Then woo her with words that even flowers and a ring can’t say.
- Flowers for Dinner
While there are edible flowers available in restaurants, that isn’t what this section means. If you plan on popping the question in the middle of dinner, why not decorate the table or the room with her favorite blooms? Fiesta Flowers, Plants and Gifts can provide exquisite blooms in equally charming vases for romantic dinner purposes. If dessert is also part of the equation, another way to set the theme is bringing in a cake decorated with sweet sugar flowers.
- Flower Fields
Flower fields are nature’s romantic venues. Having a spring wedding proposal is the perfect way to utilize free and naturally decorative meadows. Not only is a flower field romantically picturesque, it’s also a good venue for other wedding proposal ideas.
- Flower Crowns
Not only is a Flower Crown beautiful on its own, it’s also a wonderful piece a bride-to-be can wear with your ring once she says yes. To make it more personal, you can weave the wreath yourself using her favorite flowers.
- Flowery Family Ideas
Don’t limit yourself to a bouquet or a trail of petals! If you can, contact the important people in your girlfriend’s life and arrange them all in a single place so they can each give your fiance-to-be a flower. To make it feel more of a journey, feel free to also add a long flower petal trail for your girlfriend to follow, with you and your ring at the end of it all. Not only is this evidently done with effort, it’s also an intimate and touching gesture for everyone involved. If you’re not sure how many people you’ll be able to actually gather, don’t worry, because Fiesta Flowers, Plants and Gifts can help with their same-day delivery. With that, you won’t need to worry about a lack of or an excess of flowers.
Flowers are wonderful and timeless pieces to intensify the romantic atmosphere, especially in a crucial proposal such as a marriage proposal. If done right, you can use the natural symbolism of flowers to their maximum potential. Of course, however, there is no wrong way to pull off a proposal. No matter how you integrate flowers with your proposal, if any at all, all that matters is that your beloved says “yes”.
