Is it about a show or true love?

Okay Let’s Chat!  I think that when a man has found the woman that he wants to spend the rest of his life with, that is awesome.  And when he plans to propose to her, it should be a very special, sentimental moment for the both of them.  It should be something that he has thought long and hard about; how he wants this moment to be played out.  Remember, everyone will be asking “How did he propose?”, so you want to make sure that it is something that she will always remember, and not be disappointed.

I decided that I wanted to become a Marriage Proposal Planner because I desire to assist in making sure that this is a moment that will never be forgotten. I am a totally romantic person at heart, and I am one of those ladies that cry joyful tears during those very special moments.

In our world today, there is a lot of pressure on men to get photographed, get a flash mob, or complete a videotape for all to see. Here are just a couple of examples of how we now have made it so that guys are in competition to create the best proposal that will get 1 zillion views and likes. A guy took 27 minutes to propose to his girlfriend and it is all over the internet and YouTube. Or what about the guys who acted like the plane was about to crash, when it was not, just so he could propose.

I think all of that is great, but we have lost sight of the real picture.  You are proposing to your girlfriend because you love her so much that you want to spend the rest of your life with her.  You see yourself married, with the house, the kids and the pets.  Yes, it is okay to hire a planner to assist you if you want to make sure that it is done right, want help pulling all of the pieces together or you are making it a day long activity.  Just remember, it is about the love your share, not about how many hits you can get on social media.
Don’t get me wrong, seeing these special moments on the internet and reading about them are liked by many. However, I decided that I wanted to do this to help celebrate the love that a man and woman share with each other.  I read an article where many women were disappointed with their proposal because it was not romantic.  I know that you do not want your special lady to be disappointed about the proposal, but you want it to be a special moment that will be told to their grandchildren, not simply viewed on social media.  Just Sayin!

Would She say YES!

Yesterday, I was checking my news feed on Facebook and I saw this picture and thought that is a cute engagement ring.  I read the post further and found out it was a cake.  I was blown away that is was actually a cake.  I like it so much that I posted it to my Facebook page.  My head began to swirl with proposal ideas.

I have several friends who offer Proposal Service for guys who need or want assistance with proposing to their girlfriend.  I even found this very cool website called Perfect Proposal and I loved it so much that I sent them telling them that I thought they had a great website.  I am so into proposal that I signed up for "How He Asked" newsletter which is all about wedding proposals.I am totally a true romantic at heart so much that I had cried when watching several of these videos.  I love all of those holiday love stories and romantic movies.  I am the first to cry at those sentimental moments and my family knows it.  I am such a love person that I have two fireplaces in my home.

Okay, so let's get back to the engagement cake. I see a guy going to have this cake made but there is also a sign saying Will You  Marry Me! made out of Rice Crispies as well.  In the morning he serves her breakfast in bed and tells her that he has a few errands to run. On the tray is a single red rose, French toast with sausage, orange juice and a note. The note tells her to get ready for a one of a kind day. She gets dressed and finds another note with her keys and there is a knock at the door.  The limousine driver is there to pick her up to take her on her journey for the day.  In the limo she finds another note from her boyfriend talking about how the first meet.  She arrives at her next spot where she joins her best friends for a mani and pedi treatment.  Once they are done they get into the limo and head to lunch.  After they have finished eating she is given another note.  She gets back into the limo to go to her next destination where she finds her siblings.  They have a video message to play for her from her boyfriend.  She is in tears now because she knows that he is up to something.  The limo takes her back home where she gets  dressed up and waits for her boyfriend to arrive.  He arrives with a bouquet of Peonies which is her favorite flower.  She thinks they are going out for a special dinner but there is more to it. 

They arrive at one of their favorite restaurants to have dinner when they are escorted to one of their private dinning room which is filled with their family and friends.  She is totally blown away and surprised.  They have dinner and you can  hear laughter and love fill the room.  She still has no idea that he is going to propose to her.  The waiting staff begin to remove their plates from the table and he decides he wants to do a toast.  While he is doing the toast the waiter staff bring out the cake and places it in front of her and he drop to one knee.  She is absolutely shocked because the cake looks so real but it is absolute replica of the engagement ring that he has in his hand.
I'm totally a TRUE Romantic at heart!  What do you think her answer would be?

Bridal Corner

The company that made this cake is called Let Them Eat Cake.  I know the baking/cake industry has evolved just like the wedding industry.  They make cakes that look like purses, shoes, perfume bottles, etc.  If you are wanting something totally unique and different than make sure that the bakery can handle your type of order.  Make sure  they have pictures to prove the can provide what you need and get referrals. You need to find out how long it will take them to make a special designed cake for you event.  You must also consider the price for the cake because you are not at your local grocery store purchasing a cake.  The prices of the cakes can be very high do to all of the work and the type of icing , artistic artistry time they will use to make your special cake. Don't forget about the number of people that this cake will be serving.  Jump outside of the box and do something different and fun.

I am not an expert on creating proposal but I am a true romantic at heart.  If you are wanting to find a creative way to propose to your girlfriend than begin to think outside of the box.  Create a  movie or video, choose scenes form Disney movies, do a flash mob,  do a scavenger hunt., or call Let Them Eat Cake so they can create a replica of your ring for you.  Make it a moment that both of you will never forget.  My husband took me to a boat show in Annapolis and found a boat that was taking people our for a ride and then propose to me.  I never had a clue.
