It is true that many of our clients do spend a decent amount on their proposals. But not everyone has a big budget for their marriage proposal and that is ok too! Proposals can be expensive with private car rentals, large-scale venues, music, food, and flowers… it can all be a bit overwhelming. If you want to propose but you don’t have a huge budget, follow these 3 tips that will help you lower the cost of proposing without sacrificing anything important.
Less is More
When you picture your perfect proposal, how does it look? Once you have the details pinned down, you can start to think outside the box. Brainstorm how you can get the effect that you’re going for without breaking the bank. For example, you have a grand vision of a room entirely filled with flowers. Instead of spending thousands on roses, consider proposing in a botanical garden which has all the flowers you can imagine. Offer your partner a perfect, single bloom alongside the engagement ring. Instead of buying a bottle of Dom at dinner, have a less expensive bottle of champagne chilling on ice hidden in the backseat of your car for a celebratory after-dinner toast. The surprise and forethought makes it even more special. There are no limits if you can think creatively.
Did you know you can save a bundle of money by simply proposing in a public place? Other than the engagement ring itself, the proposal venue is one of the most expensive parts of any proposal plan. If you are on a budget, consider popping the question at a beach, park, or restaurant rather than renting out a large venue.
