Greg saw a piece recently in an industry journal about wedding planners with “side businesses.”
This woman calls herself a “proposal planner.” Brides, how would you feel about a proposal-for-hire? Is it exactly what your man needs to pull off the proposal-to-end-all-proposals? Or is part of the charm for you knowing that the whole thing came from your sweetie’s own mind? Read the blurb, and take our poll!
THE PROPOSAL PLANNER
Sarah Pease, Brilliant Event Planning
The inspiration for her marriage-proposal business—The Proposal Planner from Brilliant Event Planning—came from a story she heard from “a friend of a friend,” explains Sarah Pease. The would-be groom wanted to incorporate his beloved’s favorite food—fried chicken–into his wedding proposal. So, “He decided that the very best way to pop the question was to put a ring at the bottom of a bucket of chicken!”
The New York-based wedding planner knew “there had to be a better way,” and in 2008 launched her proposal business. She does not consider it a sideline: “Depending on the time of year, I may be spending the majority of my time planning marriage proposals over any other type of event,” she says. “Since high proposal season is November through February, it’s a great balance to the busy wedding months of spring and summer.”
