We get to hear a lot of truly amazing proposal stories. One recently that stood out to me - I asked a couple how they got engaged and they were hesitant to share. Finally, one shared that their partner brought her breakfast in bed with the ring on the tray. She ended the story by saying “so it really wasn’t a good story but it was a special moment for us.” I was shocked! I wanted to grab them both by the shoulders and shake them and say “HELLO! Love it. Own it. That is such a sweet and beautiful moment!”
Making your proposal special
All in all, your story is about you and your significant other, it doesn’t matter how it happened - if it is a special moment between the two of you it's a remarkable story. And it resulted in them taking that next step and deciding to get married! These stories might not be the videos you see go viral, but it is important and so significant nonetheless.
Thinking more in-depth about this story and the many other proposal stories we have heard throughout my time working in the wedding industry, we noticed a correlation between a couple’s personalities and their proposal story. Each story gives us a glimpse into what is important to a couple and gets us to the root of what makes their relationship unique.
So we essentially came up with three categories of “Couple Personalities” we see: The Chill Couple, The Romantics, and The Exhibitionists.
A quick glance at proposal styles
We noticed a correlation between a couple's personality and their proposal story. Hearing a couple's proposal story ( as a wedding professional) our job is to make your vision a reality. So when we ask to hear a proposal story, one we love proposal stories, but it shows what is important to them and gets us to the root of what makes their relationship unique.
The chill couple:
An intimate one-on-one proposal in a cozy spot that makes you feel comfortable and brings joy. This is usually a more spontaneous and relaxed setting.
A few examples of this laid-back, romance-filled couple and their proposal story would include:
The romantics: a couple that oozes a Hallmark moment
These style couples will plan something more romantic, planned and thought out the proposal at a
special location important to you two. Could be 1 on 1 or surrounded by family & friends. Sometimes quite a bit of planning goes into these proposals!
A few examples would be:
The exhibitionists: get ready for those social media viral plans!
These are going to be more of the big, flashy, jaw-dropping proposal. Normally done in public. Big celebration to follow with all family and all friends!
Examples of our exhibitionist-type couples include:
