Amazing Proposal Stories Part Duex

Wow! I have heard some of the best proposal stories this week! I have to share, and when you hear them don't be too jealous, just let your fiance know these sweet and creative ideas can be used towards brithdays, Valentine's Day, and anniversaries.

"Love on the Big Screen"
Jenna and her fiance Eric are the perfect laid back couple. Eric made a simple at home propsal one of the most creative I have heard. He had planned dinner at the house and asked her what movie she wanted him to rent, she told him she wanted to see Dan-Real Life. So Eric being technological saavy got with one of his guy friends and inserted himself into this movie. It was a time in the movie where the phone rings, and instead of the actor being on the other line, it was then Eric! It is somewhat of a hard thing to describe, but it was so cool! As they got 20 minutes into the movie, Jenna had no idea, until she was like "that's strange... was that Eric?!", she listened, and we she turned to the side, he was down on one knee! Awww...
They are getting married in April 2009 at Sweetwater Branch Inn.

"Follow the Trail"
Morgan is another great bride, very easy going and busy in Vet school. From the moment she started telling me the story of her proposal I was enticed! It was a Saturday (a day most people sleep in) so Morgan was confused when Robert got up early and left. About 30 minutes later, her alarm starting going off, she went to turn it off and there was something blocking it, she looked and it was an envelope. It read "Get up, get ready, and be at this address by this time..." She followed the directions and it took her the place she gets her hair done. She was enjoying getting her hair done, when she got another envelope... It read: "Be at this address by this time, and here is also money to eat lunch at your favorite restaurant". She was so surprised when she found out the next location was Spa Royale, where he planned a whole spa day for her-massage, mani and pedi. Not only was her hair gorgeous, but she was relaxed and pampered. The last envelope told her to go back home and get ready; he would pick her up 6pm. At 6pm he whisked her away for a romantic dinner and a sweet proposal. Most proposals last for five minutes, this was an all day love adventure! Jealous yet?

I want to hear more stories, post them!

Top 10 Advice on finding the DRESS!

  • Number One Rule: Be open minded! What you think reminds you of your grandmother's dress on the hanger, may in fact be the dress of your dreams.
  • Bring someone that knows your style better than their own. I'm sure the groom doesn't want to see you in something that your bestfriend would wear on her wedding day
  • DON'T PURCHASE YOUR DRESS ONLINE! You miss out on the whole experience.
  • Don't worry what the groom will think. If he loves you, he will love what you pick.
  • Have fun! Remember that you have been dreaming of this day since you were five. Don't let the decision put a cloud over your head
  • If you hate the little bow on the dress, ask the consultant if you can order it Chances are you can. Keep in mind (contrary to what the magazines always say) there might be a charge for it. It won't lower the cost of the dress.
  • Price vs. Love: If you love the dress, GO FOR IT! Don't settle for less on what your wearing for your big day. You can always take some of the budget from the centerpieces and so on. No one will know and we won't tell.
  • Research designers online and make a scrap book of styles that you like. Do keep in mind, that it may all change when you start trying on.
  • Save the group shopping for the mall. This should be a personal experience that you should only share with one or two.
  • When you find it, you find it. Don't second guess yourself or you will pick your second favorite.
