Proposal Idea? You Can Pay For That.

It’s not news that ever since the invention of a little thing called YouTube, Facebook, Vine, etc., that oversharing has become the norm – especially when it comes to big life events, like proposals. I can’t count on my fingers and toes the number of proposal videos I have seen go viral in just the last few months. I get it, love is cute.

So with the pressure to have the biggest, baddest, most shared proposal in all the land, companies have sprouted up who will take, well, all of the effort out of the stressful proposal-planning process. Some offer just the creative idea (personalized to the couple, of course) for $300-500. Prices go up quite a bit for the planning and execution (one woman claims to have clients spend up to $50,000)! Some companies have pre-planned packages based on your locale (picnic on Boston Common for $590, Napa Valley wine tasting tour for $3,300, for example).

Kudos to these companies for satisfying a demand, but I just can’t fully support this. Maybe it’s the romantic in me, but someday, when some crazy man decides he wants to spend the rest of his life with me, I want HIM to decide how he proposes. I don’t want to find out that a few chicks trolling Pinterest curated one of the biggest moments of my life. It doesn’t have to be anything crazy and dramatic; it just has to come from the heart…not the wallet.
