Kiss that Cliché Proposal Goodbye!

Hey there love birds, planning on proposing? We at Brilliant Event Planning already showed you how to make your proposals pop,  now let us help you avoid the trap of the dreaded cliché proposal. Here are our Dos and Don’ts for sending you on your way to wedded bliss!  

Do: Prep your man or lady properly

Whether you ultimately decide on bringing your significant other to dinner, or some other special event, it’s important to let them know that you two will be going somewhere special.  We guarantee your significant other will want to look extra spiffy the day they get proposed to, so make sure you accurately set up the situation, without giving anything away!

 

Don’t: Borrow your Playbook

While every hopeless romantic loves a good RomCom, don’t take the easy way out by copying a scene straight out of a movie or novel.  You want your significant other to feel special on this day, they deserve your own personal design!

Do: Do the Unexpected

We guarantee any fianceé-to-be would swoon over a unique proposal tailored just for them, but how about kicking it up a notch?  No one knows your significant other like you do, and now’s the time to prove it!  Think about what they love, what makes them tick, and find a way to incorporate your insider info and you may just catch him or her by surprise.

 

Don’t: Choose a Touristy Spot

Unless a particular landmark has special significance to the two of you as a couple, leave it out.  Especially in New York, there are thousands of proposals daily at spots like the Empire State Building, Times Square, etc. – save the crowds and choose a romantic scene that you’ve hand-picked.

 

Do: Have fun!

We know that proposing to your lady or man is a big step in your relationship, and we understand the nerves that come along with it! However, remember that this day is for both of you to start a new journey, focus on the beauty in this big moment and all the pressures will melt away!

A Brilliant Wedding: Angelique and Joe

Last summer we had an incredible time designing Angelique and Joe’s wedding! On August 2nd, the lovely pair were married at the Glen Island Harbour Club in a beautiful outdoor tent ceremony.

The incredible white floral arrangements from Arcadia Floral, as well as the beautiful natural backdrop of the Glen Harbour Club set in New Rochelle, New York, made for a stunning scene that wowed guests from start to finish.

The happy couple started off the fun outdoors popping a bottle of champagne. They made sure the guests joined in on all the good times too! Fun signage in the powder rooms encouraged guests to get back on the dance floor.

The merriment continued throughout the night with gorgeous candles and place settings in the club. Family and friends danced the night away with the happy newlyweds!
