When men plan to pop the question to their girlfriends, some think really big—like going for a luxurious destination like Maldives or Seychelles as a setting. However, some choose to pop the question at a place where their partner won’t suspect a thing. A Daily Mail reporter writes about a man who proposed to his girlfriend at a music festival.
“Catherine Mauro, who lives in New York, had just arrived at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee, on June 12 when suddenly she was engulfed by complete strangers coming up to her handing her flowers.
A cell phone video then shows her boyfriend, John Ferreira, creeping up behind her, getting down on one knee and presenting a sparkling engagement ring.
At first she stands back in disbelief, then, after gathering her composure, she wipes her tears away and nods a ‘yes’.
The loved-up couple then embrace dressed in their festival gear, with onlookers heard cheering in the background.”
Men from College Station can take a page off this guy’s book. The setting doesn’t have to be a music festival; any well-attended event like the upcoming BCS Marathon will do—as long as the would-be bride is genuinely interested in going there, of course. Guys can make the proposal extra special by picking the right kind of flowers from a College Station florist to hand over to the girl. Here are some tips:
Learn about her favorite colors.
Red roses are, of course, a staple when demonstrating love and affection. However, men who wish to go off the beaten path a little, so to speak, can do so by going for other types of flowers. They can select based on the colors that their ladyloves like. If they don’t have a clue about what their gals’ fave colors are, they just have to observe what colors their girls love to wear.
Match flowers with her personality.
Just like dresses, accessories, and shoes, there are certain kinds of flowers that complement a woman’s personality. For instance, daisies go well for women who are sweet and cheerful, while calla lilies will certainly be appreciated by women who exude poise and elegance. Ladies with a quirky and creative side (think Zooey Deschanel in “New Girl”) will love poppies.
Giving flowers is an age-old romantic gesture, and a marriage proposal accompanied by flowers will certainly be more romantic. Of course, guys have to pick the right flowers first. In addition, they have to make sure the bouquets are carefully arranged, and this is where they can use the services of College Station florists like the ones from Nan’s Blossom Shop.
