Apparently some men are paying up to $10,000 to create the ultimate marriage proposal for their lucky ladies says a recent New York Times report. Six trends have been identified including destination proposals with elaborately planned weekends away and ‘capturing the moment’ with a photographer nearby to capture the proposal on film. I’ve put the list over the cut but I’m more interested to learn if your beau went to great lengths to get you to say yes?
Destination Proposals. Romantic, destination-based proposals with elaborately planned weekends filled with exciting activities to celebrate the occasion are gaining popularity.
A Family Affair. More men are surprising the bride-to-be by secretly organizing family and friends to be present at the time of the proposal.
Capturing the Moment. Men are increasingly requesting the services of professional photographers to photograph their marriage proposals for posterity.
Customize, Customize, Customize. More and more men are requesting custom engagement rings designed around their girlfriends’ taste and lifestyle. In keeping with this theme men are asking for assistance in customizing their proposal to ensure the ring and engagement are one of a kind.
Tradition is Still In. Intimate, private and personal proposals in settings such as: a romantic dinner served on the beach, a luxury suite at a five-star hotel or a private room at a fine dining establishment never goes out of style
