If you are planning to propose on a private rooftop during the summer season, you made a right choice. Summer is the rooftop time. It is magical, warm nights and fresh air – ideal for surprise engagements. But rooftop by itself, won’t make the magic, you still need to think of how to enhance your proposal. We think, that some decorations can be a key point for an ideal engagement.
Here are our 5 tips for a summer rooftop decorations.

1. Real Flowers

Nothing is more romantic as the real smell of the flowers. We can make a flower arch or cover the whole floor in the real rose petals or maybe you want a magnificent flower heart on the floor? The main thing is to use the real flowers and real flower petals.
You would be surprised, but we had guys who were buying fake plastic petals and cover the floor with it. The look and the smell were not romantic at all. So use only REAL flowers.

2. Private table for two.

Summer rooftops are ideal for a romantic dinner or champagne celebration. To enhance the moment, put the nicely decorated table with the tablecloth, champagne, and strawberries on the roof. Just imagine, she says “yes” and you two opening a champagne and calling your family. Also, what a perfect way to tell her all about your proposal planning as not with the glass and glorious view.

3. Illuminated Props

If you are planning a nighttime proposal on the rooftop, you definitely need some candles and illuminated props. The more lights the better. We love using the red candles in glass vases as it looks very classic and romantic. Also, any kind of string lights and fairy lights will work. For those, who want to bring the proposal to the next level, the illuminated ‘MARRY ME?” marquee letters will make her “WOW”.
Just don’t overdo it. It needs to be balanced and look stylish, as the main spot of attention should be your significant other and not the props.

4. Pictures

One of the best way to see how far you came from ” dating” to ” getting married” is to make a memory walk through the pictures. Print the pictures and place it around the roof, or clip them on the wires and let them hand around. She will be touched to see all those good memories hanging there. If you want to have fun with it, we can order an Instagram picture frame and place it on a rooftop. You can start making memories right there!

5. Movie/Cartoons scene decoration

For those couples, who loves ” Beauty and the Beast” or ” Friends”, just imagine how wonderful it will be to decorate the rooftop with the enchanted rose and lights from the world famous love story. If she always dreamed of being a princess, give her that chance on this special night. Prepare a princess dress, hire a musician and let the fairy tale come into your life.
