Spring and Summer Marriage Proposal Ideas

Propose in a flower or botanical garden when everything is beautifully in bloom.

 Have a friend or family member set up a picnic—complete with wine and cheese, of course—for you in a park. Then come up with an excuse for taking a trip there where you will stumble upon this surprise proposal.

 How is this for a dreamy outdoor proposal idea? Pick a spot for some summer stargazing (it's even more perfect if there's a meteor shower or lunar eclipse expected) and propose under the night sky.

 Suggest a berry-picking excursion to make some fresh summer pies. Once you are out there, tell your partner you've found the most perfect berry they have to see. Instead of ripe fruit, they will find you and the ring. (This also works in the fall with apple or pumpkin picking.)

 Want more beach proposal ideas? On the night before a seaside day you've planned, write a love poem on a piece of parchment paper, roll it into an antique bottle with a cork and bury it in a well-marked spot in the sand near your towels. Be sure you "find" the bottle as you dig together—and be ready with the ring.

Public Marriage

Proposal Ideas

1. Choose a favorite place—whether it's a fountain, hotel rooftop, monument or national park—that has personal significance to the two of you. Once you're there, ask someone nearby to take a picture of you together. Instead of posing, drop down on one knee.

2. Have a choir, brass band or drum line show up for a surprise performance of your fiance-to-be's favorite love song in a park or public location for your proposal. For a really personal touch, ask the performers if they can incorporate your fiance's name into the lyrics.

3. Get in touch with the stage manager of your favorite production and propose after the cast's curtain call. Call ahead and see if you can have a special note or ad placement added into the playbill so you have a keepsake of the proposal.

4. Arrange a surprise proposal with a street caricaturist. Have the caricaturist sketch a picture of you two with word bubbles that say, "Will you marry me?" and "Yes!"

5. Ask the divers at an aquarium to put on a proposal show inside their biggest fish tank. Give them a (waterproof) sign that says, "Will you marry me?" to hold up against the glass and then position yourselves for what will, at first, seem like feeding time.

6. Send your unsuspecting fiance-to-be on a treasure hunt that ends with your marriage proposal. Start with a clue at home (a handwritten note or text message) that leads to a tour of your favorite spots all over town.

7. Go out for a night of dancing and ask the DJ or bandleader to pass you the mic so you can dedicate a song and propose on the dance floor.

8. Hire a skywriter to spell out your proposal for everyone around to see.

9. Take out a full-page ad in a newspaper then pick the perfect spot to have a relaxing morning of catching up on current events


10. Call into a radio station, make sure your fiance-to-be is listening then propose on the air.

How Long Does It Take to Get a Wedding Dress?

While it traditionally takes between six and nine months for a dress to come in from the date of your purchase, this is estimate dates. Bridal boutiques do not control the production or delivery. Things have changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, we are seeing it take more like 9 to 14 months for wedding dresses to come in, which means that some brides could have to wait more than a year for their wedding gown to arrive.


Why Does It Take So Long for a Wedding Dress to Arrive?

Even under normal circumstances, many brides are surprised to learn that wedding dresses can take months to arrive. Now that the coronavirus has affected a large part of the world, brides might not realize that the timeline could be further extended.

Typically, dresses take a while to come in because they are special ordered in the correct size for you. With all the intricacies of a wedding gown, it is no surprise that each dress can take months to create. Keep in mind that beading, sequins, and appliqués take a lot of time to attach to a dress.

Each designer will also need to produce dresses for brides who put in orders before you or need their dress before you need yours. Considering this, designers try to ensure that they leave enough time to get all the dresses done in time with their available workforce.

Shipping also takes a lot of time because dresses come from all over the world. Since dresses have to be carefully transported thousands of miles, it is bound to take extra time. Dresses can also get caught up in customs, which adds to the delivery time.
