Did you know that more couples get engaged during the spring months than any other time of year? There’s just something about the warmer weather, blooming flowers and singing birds that seems to awaken love. If you’re thinking of proposing in the upcoming months, the experts at Marco Island Weddings have some excellent ideas to make your proposal one she can’t wait to share with friends and family.
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 Collier-Seminole State Park and its variety of wildlife and tropical foliage so you can choose your picturesque scene ahead of time.
In a Garden
Imagine being surrounded by the beauty, color and fragrance of thousands of flowers in bloom as you get down on bended knee before your beloved to ask for her hand. In springtime, there’s simply nothing more romantic than a blooming garden. For a little privacy, consider the Naples Botanical Garden, which offers multiple scenic spots for proposing marriage to your love.
On a Scavenger Hunt
For a fun twist, send her on a scavenger hunt to locate special items. Stick to a theme by hiding items that go together. For instance, she’ll catch on to your campfire idea as she collects sticks, marshmallows, chocolate bars, and graham crackers for s’mores along the way. Be sure the last thing she finds is you on bended knee!
At a Picnic
Of course, springtime is a great excuse for a picnic, and the intimacy and sweetness provided by a picnic is a great opportunity to ask for her hand. Choose to playfully hide the ring among the champagne glasses, or simply start a conversation about how much you love her and let your heart take it from there.
There’s nothing better than a Florida Gulf Coast Sunset. Take her breath away as you ask her to marry you in front of a stunning sunset on Marco Island Beach with the warm Gulf waters and balmy breeze surrounding you. She’ll be yours forever, and might even consider having your wedding in the same location!
Under the Stars
Stargazing after sunset on our beautiful beaches is another great way to pop the big question. A walk on the beach after dinner or simply lingering after the sun goes down will be a romantic scene she’ll always remember. Bring a blanket for sitting on the sand and snuggle up under the stars.
At a Ball Game
If you and your partner love baseball, Florida’s spring training circuit is the place to be! This just might be the perfect setting for your perfect proposal. Settle in for the beginning of the season at any one of the many spring training or minor league games in the area, then ask her to be your date to every baseball game for the rest of your lives.
On a Boat Ride
Get out on the water for an adventurous proposal that she’ll love to talk about! Rent a canoe or kayak and explore Marco Island’s natural beauty. Florida’s Gulf Coast is teeming with wildlife and tropical wonders, so give her the thrill of discovering hidden wonders as you declare your love for her.
