Creative Proposal Ideas| Lincoln Park Conservatory

What do you get for the girl who has everything? Well, an engagement ring for one, and a bench dedicated to her at the Lincoln Park Conservatory that will hold your sweet message to her for ten years!

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, you may be scrambling to come up with creative proposal ideas, or even hoping that your proposal will count as your V-Day gift! Well look no further because after 10 years of being fully reserved, the Lincoln Park Conservatory is offering their benches to the public again! What better way to propose to your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day than a romantic date to the Conservatory and ending it down on one knee in front of your newly dedicated bench!

The Conservatory offers beautiful scenery in any season, and can make the perfect backdrop for your surprise Valentine’s Day proposal. Not only will she be blown away by the creativity of the proposal, but the message on the bench will hold up to three lines of your proclamation of love to her for ten years.

This is the gift that keeps on giving, as you will be able to return to the spot where you got engaged for years to come, and reminisce about the proposal! To bring this creative proposal idea full circle, the Conservatory is also a beautiful venue for a wedding ceremony, featuring the beautifully restored Alfred Caldwell Lily pool.

This is also a fantastic gift for your sweetie even if you’re already married! There’s only so many gifts and so many holidays, so why not get her a gift she never even thought of having, her very own dedicated bench! If your anniversary happens to be around Valentine’s Day, or you beat us to this creative proposal idea and already proposed on Valentine’s Day past, this is such a creative and unique way to commemorate the occasion and your love for her!

Dedicate a Bench to Your Love

Gifts don’t always come in packages or ribbons, but a surprise Valentine’s Day proposal on a bench dedicated to your soon-to-be fiancée is a creative gift that is way outside the box (except for the ring, of course, which is in a box)!
