Re: Surprise Proposal

  • Why do you want to video it? If you're going to surprise her, I don't know that you need any "special" ideas; the proposal will be surprise enough. Good luck.

    Why? Our proposal wasn't filmed and it's still special. Just think of something lovely and run with it -- my fiancé programmed a batch file to take me on a scavenger hunt to find him and the ring.

  • I think that's very sweet of you! 

    I would talk to mutual friends of yours and see what they can come up with to help you think of something. However you ask is going to be special and memorable, just remember that :)

    congratulations!

    </div><div>I can't watch video's right now but I think this is a great idea. Some women love being able to rewatch their memories and I hear you can forget a lot when you're in the moment.</div><div>
    </div><div>Do you have friends who can be in on it and won't spill the secret? They could meet you at a specific spot and hide a bit. Or could you be in an area where it's normal for people to be taking pictures.. maybe scenic. Then they can film it without looking odd. Are there adults or friends of friends who she wouldn't recognize?</div><div>
    </div><div>Maybe a friend can ask you two to do an "interview" on how you met for her class or work project. Then the recording will have you both sharing your "how we met story" AND the proposal.</div><div>
    </div><div>There are also places that don't mind helping you out.. a restaurant who's waiters are in on it. Or just set up a camera at your place and propose while you're sitting on the couch. </div><div>
    </div><div>Have fun!</div><div>
