The story of how you proposed will be told to friends and strangers for the rest of your lives (no pressure!). I think we could all learn from the way Tony executed his spectacular proposal. Since his grand scheme was too ambitious to execute by himself, Tony hired Edmonton based wedding vendors J’Adore Design and Events to bring his vision to life and Barbara Rahal Photography to capture it.
Tony chose to propose at the Art Gallery of Alberta, because that’s where the couple had their first date. The team decorated the spiral staircase with photographs of Tony and Jenny throughout their relationship. As Jenny ascended the stairs at sunset, Tony was standing on a carpet of petals from 1454 roses of various shades–one rose for every day they had dated. After Jenny said “yes,” their closest friends showered them with confetti and popped the bubbly.
Here are four tips to planning the perfect proposal:
1. Make it Your Own
Incorporate your favourite places, things and activities. The proposal should reflect you as a couple.
2. Make it Memorable
Pulling off the surprise of a lifetime is no easy task; hire an event planner to make the proposal of his/her dreams a reality.
3. Capture the Moment
This moment will be remembered forever, but hiring a photographer is a great way to share and preserve the memory.
Keep the magic alive by including friends and family. Don’t forget the champagne!
