You’ve decided to propose, and now comes the excitement – and a little anxiety – that comes with planning how to ask the big question. Whether you choose a big event with family and friends or a private moment between the two of you, there are many places in St. Louis that will provide an amazing backdrop. The wedding planners at Walter Knoll Florist have helped hundreds of area couples with the beautiful florals they need from the engagement to the wedding day, and we’d like to help with just a bit of inspiration.
Dinner and a Proposal: Giovanni’s on the Hill and Tony’s Restaurant are recognized as your best romantic choice in Saint Louis for the big question. With both boasting exceptional service, you can be assured that your evening will be spectacular. Call or visit any restaurant ahead of time to give them a heads up of what you will be doing, and they may be able to help set the mood. Ask if they will scatter rose petals around your table, have a bouquet waiting for you, or deliver a specially made dessert. We love the idea of a miniature three-tiered wedding cake with a ring on top – or a dessert arranged on a plate with the words “Will You Marry Me?” revealed as you eat.
Art and Botanicals: Both the Laumeier Sculpture Park and the Missouri Botanical Gardens offer thousands of amazing nooks and oases perfect for a private moment with a stunning backdrop. Whether you prefer modern art or exotic plants, make sure you scout the location ahead of time so that you know exactly where you will propose – you’ll be nervous enough that day!
Here’s a Tip: Hire a secret photographer to capture the moment for you. These photos will be cherished for years to come. You may also wish to have a one or two folks discreetly keeping other visitors from intruding in the moment.
Iconic Locations, Iconic Moments: The most popular spot for a wedding proposal in St. Louis is, of course, the Arch. If you want the sunset to be a factor, make a few practice runs so you know exactly when you need to arrive. Have a friend meet you at the top with a bouquet of roses, the ring and a camera!
