December is the most popular month for getting engaged, so we thought that this would be the perfect time to discuss the wedding proposal. There are as many ways to propose as there are couples -are you private, or do you like an audience? Do you enjoy the great outdoors, or is a five-star restaurant more comfortable for you? Whatever your style, Philadelphia offers some amazing venues perfect for staging the big question – and Robertson’s Flowers has all the florals you’ll need to make it official!
Love Park – or JFK Plaza – is one of the most iconic places in town for you to pull off a wedding proposal, and there is no doubt it offers a unique photo opportunity at the Robert Indiana LOVE sculpture. However, this won’t be an intimate event, as photographers, tourists, and locals are always in abundance in this area. Another popular choice for proposals is the Race Street Pier – you can lure your intended under the guide of an ice-skating date, or just a brisk walk along the water.
Here’s a hint – A stealth photographer is a great idea. They can capture the moment in secret, and then take more formal shots – or stay completely in hiding so that you can provide the framed photos to your spouse as a wedding gift.
Whether you are headed to the Morris Arboretum, the City Hall Observation Desk, or one of Philadelphia’s many art galleries, enlist the help of a few friends to build a bouquet leading up to your proposal. Instruct them to hand a single-stem rose to a complete stranger and ask them to walk up to your partner and silently hand them the flower. Throughout a span of time, she will collect a full bouquet – and you’ll be prepared to propose!
If you are headed out for a meal at M Restaurant, Il Vittore, or Vetri – voted among the most romantic eateries in the city – don’t forget to do a little upfront work. Arrange with the restaurant to have a special bouquet of her favorite flowers on the table waiting for you, and you can nestle the ring into one of the blooms. Show us the ring ahead of time, and we will create the perfect arrangement to show it off. Of course, having a custom “Will You Marry Me” dessert made is a popular way to end the meal.
