It’s officially engagement season, folks! Did you know a staggering 43% of proposals take place between November and January, with December the most popular month of all? So go on, what are you waiting for?
Here at the Green House Hotel, Bournemouth’s most eco-friendly luxury boutique hotel, we are experts at creating not just the perfect wedding but the perfect proposal too. The Green House Hotel has been listed as one of the top wedding venues in the UK for tying the knot by not one but two trusted publications, Wedding Magazine and the Independent. So we know a thing or two about making romantic memories.
When it comes to the big question, we know you only really get one chance. And as with weddings, there is no one-size-fits-all. Of course, the day will end with a stay in one of our romantic, luxurious bedrooms, complete with rose petals on the bed and a bottle of champagne or your chosen tipple. What comes before is up to you. Why not talk through the options with The Green House Hotel’s creative and friendly planners? Surrounded by the world-renowned beauty of the Dorset coast, the ancient, mystical New Forest, the picturesque ruins of Corfe Castle and more, The Green House Hotel is perfectly placed here in Bournemouth to come up with a unique and romantic backdrop for your proposal. Whatever you decide, whatever your budget, we will help make it perfect. All you need to do is remember the ring!
Prices start from £285 for a one night stay in a luxurious large double room with roll top Victorian bath, a bottle of Champagne (tell us when you would like it served!), rose petals on the bed, 4-course dinner from our a la carte menu and full New Forest breakfast in the morning.
But before we get carried away with the sheer romance of it all, let’s take a moment to think about that all-important engagement party. Because second only to the delight (and relief?) of that “Yes!” is the joy of telling your nearest and dearest and celebrating in style.
The Green House caters for all types of private parties and themed special occasions and in our experience, engagement parties are some of the most joyous of all. There’s all the excitement and romance of celebrating your promise to each other, but without any of the stress of the big day itself!
Of course, organising a special party can still be quite stressful – but not here at the Green House Hotel. Because our specialist event organisers are here to help. We will theme your engagement party to your heart’s desire, and work closely with you to ensure it’s an event you’ll never forget! We’re located away from the crowds in a discreet, chic oasis, with plenty of complimentary on-site parking. Best of all, you can let your hair down without letting the planet down, too – our eco philosophy and sustainable practices are what have earned us the title of “greenest hotel in Britain”.
Food will be supplied by our 2 AA rosette restaurant Arbor – it’s been voted Best Restaurant in both the 2014 and 2015 Dorset Tourism Awards so you can be sure of delicious, top-quality fare whether you opt for a sit-down four-course meal or a buffet-style setting. Sample menus can be found here – but bear in mind they are just that – samples. Our head chef Andy Hilton and his team will design a menu especially for you based on your personal tastes and budget, once we have discussed your precise requirements including vegetarian and vegan options. Whether you prefer fresh fish or seafood, locally reared beef, chicken or pork, artisan cheeses or mouthwateringly indulgent desserts, Arbor will deliver it in style.
