Lovely story and nice idea, however why is it that everything in modern times has to be a big production. The BEST setting or most AMAZING idea. I hear some of the most beautiful stories from the heart that involve simple yet romantic and personal ways to pop that question.

This sounds too much like all the hype of celeb and hollywood. ALso sounds like how kids in high school ask one another to dances. No more are there simple questions. They go through hoops to find the most unusual or funny or outlandish ways to pop that question.

Are we getting over the top or am I just old fashioned?

How sickening...

I supposed if there's a market for it, then let someone make an income from it. For myself however, I think the idea is over the top. In my opinion, the best proposals and simple and spontaneous. How can that happen when you have such a huge production leading up to it? I'm also not so certain that I'd want to marry a guy who had to pay someone to help him figure out to propose. If he didn't have enough creativity to manage it on his own, he wouldn't be for me.

Agreed! I think the only thing left out of the Perfect Proposal is the PAPARAZZI! :D You watch. They'll invite all their family and friends and 'wahlah', a camara flashing event will ensue in addition to the videographing.

(Can I get a cut for that idea?!?)
