Romantic flowers for Christmas proposals

Apparently the festive season is the most popular time to get engaged, with 75% of couples popping the question over Christmas and New Year rather than on Valentine’s Day, according to a poll of site users by Weddingsite. With two very special dates within a week of each other, more and more people are choosing to propose either on Christmas Day or New Year’s Eve. Here UK florists Flowers24Hours share some romantic flowers suitable for proposals that say ‘I love you’.

Future grooms beware though; your bride-to-be has high hopes for this special moment, with the average woman now expecting her wedding proposal to be on a romantic break, with a ring over £1000, preferably in Cornwall! A survey of over 2000 unmarried women by Beaverbrooks found that the average girl wants to be whisked off on a surprise weekend away in the UK, on a break which has been planned for the previous three months.

Gone are the days when men are expected to ask Dad for his daughter’s hand in marriage though; the majority of women don’t want their parents to know about the engagement before they do.

But traditionalists still want their partner to be down on bended knee, and to be proposed to with an engagement ring he selected beforehand. And if the proposal is wrong in any way – either because it isn’t romantic enough, is in the wrong place or takes place on the wrong day – a quarter of women will say no!

So if you are planning on popping the question this Christmas or New Year, but haven’t booked that Cornish getaway yet, let UK flower shop Flowers24Hours lend a hand by equipping you with a romantic flower gift or hand tied bouquet to present to her alongside the ring as you get down on one knee, or perhaps even hide the ring in to up your chances of her saying ‘I will!’. And if it’s a last-minute decision too, Flowers24Hours flower delivery service offers same day delivery to London and next day delivery in the UK.

In the UK, flower gifts symbolising love that can help you convey your feelings towards that special someone in your life include orchids, which symbolise love, beauty and strength; tulips, which symbolise perfect love; and ivy, which provides an even stronger hint as to your intentions since its primary meanings are wedded love and fidelity, along with friendship and affection.
