Time to Blossom: Five proposal ideas for springtime
3rd March 2021
Spring represents growth, renewal and awakening, making it the perfect time for that life-changing proposal. However, with lockdowns limiting our abilities to dine in restaurants or fly abroad, you might have to get a bit creative with your proposal. To help you out, we’ve brought together a few springtime proposal ideas to get you started.
A picnic hike
The warmer days and bright spring sun are the perfect invitations for a picnic proposal. Find a walk nearby that has some stunning views and take a break with a delicious lunch, packed with her favourite food. When you’re settled in the spring sun, get down on one knee and pop the question. Champagne, warm weather and a dazzling engagement ring - what more could she ask for?
Visit botanical gardens
If you’re located in a big city, botanical gardens are the perfect retreat for a proposal day. With a huge variety of blooming flowers and blossoming trees, the abundance of life is the perfect frame for a romantic proposal. If you live in the south of England, we would suggest heading down to West London’s stunning Kew Gardens. Find a spot in front of one of the extraordinary greenhouses, lay down a comfy blanket and pop the question.
A scavenger hunt
If you’re looking for a fun way to propose, an Easter scavenger hunt can be both surprising and memorable. Store a message in a basket packed with chocolate eggs and keep it hidden in your back garden. When the scavenger hunt is in full swing, make sure you’re standing ready with your ring. After she’s read your message and turned around, get down on one knee and ask that all important question.
Spring-time night in
If you were proposal plans were cut short by lockdowns last spring, it looks like they may face some disruption this season too. Why not cave into a warm night in and make the proposal extra simple? The moments you spend cosying up on the sofa during those April showers can never be beaten. Keep your ring handy and use your intuition to find the best time to propose. After all - the core of beauty is simplicity.
Under the stars
As the nights start to lose their frosty touch, going on those night-time river walks suddenly becomes pleasant again. We think wandering beneath a blanket of stars is a wonderful way to propose to a loved one. Choose a night that isn’t too cold and head to a local river with your ring by your side. Underneath the moonlight, pick the right moment and you’ll make your proposal evening a night to remember.
It’s easy to feel the pressure when proposing. Try to avoid any unnecessary frills that make things more complicated than they need to be. A gorgeous spring proposal gives you the opportunity to get back to what matters: a fresh start.
