Proposals can range from extravagant and public to intimate and private, but they all need some level of planning. When it comes time to ask the all-important question, you’ve got so many choices. Because the month of December sees more people getting engaged than any other month, the team at Bagoy’s Florist & Home thought we would share some proposal inspiration. We have helped many Anchorage couples take the journey from engagement to wedding day – and we love to hear the stories.
No proposal would be complete without flowers – but what flowers are best? You might automatically think of red roses, as they symbolize romantic love and devotion – and that would be an excellent choice! But you may also wish to consider your intended’s favorite flowers – if they love orchids or lilies, a big bouquet of those blooms is entirely appropriate!
Here’s a Tip – Whether you choose to ask the big question at Kincaid Park or Beluga Point – enlist the help of your friends to have a bouquet waiting at the proposal site. That way you can preserve the element of surprise until the last moment.
The romantic ambiance of an intimate restaurant might be the perfect location for a proposal, and with a little work ahead of time, you can really make an impression! Speak to the staff at the restaurant to scatter rose petals around your table, or perhaps have a large arrangement of her favorite flowers waiting at the table. At dessert, they can bring out a specialty dessert on a plate that says “Will You Marry Me” – or even bring out a small cake showcasing the ring on top.
Capture the Moment: Hiring a secret photographer is a great way to commemorate the proposal without interrupting the intimacy of the moment. You can then either proceed to take more photos or keep the stealth photos a secret until you present your spouse with them on your wedding day.
