When springtime arrives, flowers are blooming, birds singing, and an overall sense of renewal and positive energy in the air. Perhaps this is why there are more marriage proposals during this season than any other. If you are ready to take the plunge and pop the question to your SO during the beautiful spring season, then we’ve got some great spring proposal ideas for you! The wedding experts here at Walter Knoll Weddings offer creative ways to use the beauty of spring to make a proposal that will take your sweetheart’s breath away!
In a Garden
Enjoy the best of spring, all of its blooming flowers!, by taking a stroll through the Missouri Botanical Garden. One of the nation’s oldest botanical gardens, “The Garden” offers 79 acres of botanical displays, including a 14-acre Japanese strolling garden and one of the world’s largest collections of rare and endangered orchids. The sweet scent and beauty of being surrounded by such beauty are romantic memories just waiting to be captured.
At a Ball Game
For baseball fans, there’s nothing like the start to the season, and if you live in Missouri, then you know the St. Louis Cardinals are a pretty good major league baseball team! Grab a brewski, enjoy the beautiful fresh spring air, and the infectious good mood as the baseball season gets underway. It’s romantic, too, if you and your boo love baseball. Go ahead and try to get your proposal on the Jumbotron! This will be one event not soon forgotten! i
If you’re looking for a dramatic backdrop to your proposal, then it’s hard to go wrong with a sunset proposal. The rich, warm tones of dusty red and orange in the expansive sky with streaks of gold and yellow are breathtaking. If you live in or around St. Louis, there’s no better place to watch the sunset than Sunset Park. Have the tissues ready and a few friends for taking pictures, too.
On a Boat Ride
St. Louis and its surroundings have an abundance of lakes, rivers, creeks, and even ponds ideal for boating and small watercraft. Take in the amazing scenery while in a boat enjoying the beautiful spring weather and all the beauty of nature as it blooms into life in the spring. It’s romantic, private, and perfect for spring proposals.
Under the Stars
A night under a star-filled sky is romantic and amazing. Consider going to Brommelsiek Park for an evening of stargazing to set the mood for your big proposal. This St. Charles County park was built specifically for stargazing and other astronomical purposes. Check it out during public stargazing viewings hosted every Friday night – beginning at dusk – at the Astronomy Viewing Area.
During a Hike
If you and your partner love the outdoors and being surrounded by nature, a gentle hike is a great way to make your way to a scenic area and pop the question. There are plenty of scenic sites to choose from at Washington State Park in Washington county. There are plenty of romantic, nature-filled sites perfect for proposing, from trails to hiking shelters, petroglyphs, and incredible Ozark overlooks.
Just as you are ready to begin a new life with someone you love, spring is also a moment of renewal and rebirth. Take advantage of everything this gorgeous season offers by proposing to someone, celebrating an anniversary, or just spending time with a loved one. It’s important to take a break from life and appreciate what you have and who you have in your life. Whether you’re dating, engaged, married for 5 years or 35 years, take your sweetheart to any of the spots mentioned above for a memorable and romantic day – and don’t forget the flowers!
