How To Pull Off An Amazing Proposal and Propose in Style

How To Pull Off An Amazing Proposal and Propose in Style

Proposing to your significant other is both nerve-racking and exciting. We have all seen grand over the top displays, cute romantic asks, and of course, soul crushing rejections. Planning a proposal is extremely important as you usually only get one chance at it and it will be the story everyone will want to hear. Komodo Music has put forward some great suggestions from the classic to the extreme as well as some advice of when NOT to do it!

 

 

A romantic date

Organising a home cooked meal with your partner’s favourite dishes or going to your favorite restaurant is always a classy move. Maybe just having a date night or playing board games with each other, when it’s something small an intimate it is a wonderful way to pop the question.

Life changing experience

If you find yourself in Paris, or at the Pyramids of Egypt, or on the plains of Africa, chances are you won’t be heading back anytime soon so if there is a place where it is really once in a lifetime opportunity to go consider popping the question.

Special Holidays

Wrapping up the ring as a Christmas present can be a wonderful way to share the experience. Proposing when the fireworks go off on New Year’s Eve is a fantastic way to start the year, or even having the ring in an egg shaped container for Easter is a welcome addition to any chocolate you get. Holidays can be a great time to propose.

Anniversaries

The day you both met, or the day you moved in, your partner’s birthday or the day you first bought a coffee machine together. If you have some special dates that have grown out of your relationship these are great times to propose.

Big Video Proposals

These require a lot of effort but can be super effective. If you can sit your significant other down and play a video with animation, or a movie trailer it can be super sweet. One fiancée put together a movie trailer and then got the unwitting bride to watch it in a movie. Very cute!

Flash Mob

I have some personal experience with this as this is how I proposed to my wife. Yes that’s right, I organised a flash mob choir to sing our favorite song in a restaurant and recorded the whole thing. You might have also seen that cute one with the groom to be playing “Marry You” by Bruno Mars.

Now you might have some ideas, here are some important things NOT TO DO when you propose:

Do not propose at someone else’s event unless you have cleared it with them first.

Remember that Australian show Wonderland where a guy’s girlfriend proposes in front of everyone at the guy’s friend’s wedding? Don’t do that! If it is someone else’s special day, or their birthday, or any kind of event where you are there for someone else, don’t do it unless you have asked previously if it’s ok (and we don’t mean when you get there, we mean weeks or days in advance)

 

Ensure the ring is secure

Nothing is worse that getting on a boat to propose and a strong wind knocks it into the ocean…it’s happened! So wherever you decide to pop the question, ensure you have a first grasp on the ring before hand.

 

Ensure you get the right size ring

If you can sneakily borrow one of your partner’s rings when you go to the jewellers that will ensure it should fit. Alternatively, compare your size finger to their size finger and give your best estimate. Nothing is worse than going through all the effort of a great proposal only to have the ring be too small. Discuss with the jeweller what happens if it is the wrong size

 

Know if your partner likes PDA

If your partner is really shy, they may not like a big giant public proposal with a hundred people watching. Remember this is to make it special for them so make sure they won’t be embarrassed however you decide to propose.

 

Make sure they will say yes if doing it public

Have you ever seen a “no” proposal? It is the most soul crushing and embarrassing thing you will ever see. As such if there is even a 5% chance that your partner may say no due to conflict, change in emotion towards you, or any miscellaneous reason so not propose in public.

 

With these ideas and the helpful advice of what to avoid, hopefully this will lead to marital bliss and you will be needing our services soon:-)

Pets at Your Wedding Ceremonies

Pets at Your Wedding Ceremonies

 

Let’s face it, for some of us our pets are our fur babies. We love them so much as much (or on some days) more than our own children. So it is natural to want them to be part of your special day. Having your pet at your ceremony is not as difficult as you would think and can be a great addition to photos and the procedure, however there are some important questions you need to ask first:

 

Is the venue pet friendly?

If they say no animals are allowed at the ceremony then you either need to scrap the idea or start looking for a new ceremony location.

 

Is your pet friendly towards ALL people?

If the answer is not a resounding YES, then you may need to reconsider this. If they like most people but don’t like kids that may be a problem. If they don’t like males, that may be a problem. If they don’t like anyone near mum and dad that may be a problem too.

 

Is your pet well trained?

Will your pet pull the lead out of whoever is holding them as soon as they see you? Do they freak out over loud noises? Are they happy to stay in one spot or will they start digging? Ensure you know how well behaved your pet is before you have them there.

 

Will there be any other animal there?

This is something you might not have thought about but if the venue has a local cat and your dog loves to chase cats this could end in disaster. If the venue has their own dog will your one be trying to mark everything in sight during your vowels? If there are horses on the property how will your pet react? If there is any other kind of animal there you should double check first.

 

Got answers to all of the above and it all sounds good? Great! Now let’s get into your pet being part of the ceremony:

 

What are they going to do?

Are you wanting them to bring down the rings on their collar? Are you riding them in (if it is a horse, don’t do that to a dog)? Or are you wanting them just to be there and maybe in some photos? Whatever you decide will determine what is required. You may have to do some practise training to ensure they not only know what to do, but also have a backup just in case they decide to ‘go off script’

 

What are they going to wear?

Even though a tux and hat looks very cute in photos, most animals actually don’t like them and making them wear it for about an hour may not work. You also run the risk of them overheating which can be dangerous in the warmer months. Usually a nice collar with a bow tie is fine but if you want to get really elaborate ensure they have worn it before and are ok with it.

 

Who is going to look after them?

If you can get a family member or friend to pick them up and then drop them off at home that is great, but there is also a service in Perth that do that for you!

My Pet Attendant is run by Karen and Greg, we know this because we did their wedding! They offer a complete package of picking up your pet, looking after them during the ceremony, taking them for a walk once all the photos are done and then taking them back home. This is an excellent service for those who don’t want to ask family or friends to do it.
