How much are you willing to spend to pop the question?
We’ve all indulged in videos of lengthy, elaborate, sometimes a little over-the-top proposals on the internet, but this Dubai gent has gone and set the bar a whole lot higher.
It’s a big moment, granted. If you’re lucky, you’ll only have to do it once.
One property developer from Dubai has gone and spent a seriously hefty Dhs1 million on his proposal.
What did it involve?
According to proposal planners, The Proposers, the proposal itself cost Dhs685,000, and another Dhs315,000 for a one-minute celebrity appearance in a video played during the proposal. As to who that celebrity was? It hasn’t been disclosed.
The couple started out on a yacht in the Meditteranean, before a helicopter took them to a luxury hotel in the Monaco cliffs.
Once there, they walked through an archway, past a fairy-light-ridden oak tree, covered with hand-written notes as to why he loved her alongside hand-drawn illustrations of the duo.
After that, it was on to a terrace with a view of the ocean, where they drank ‘love potion cocktails’ while being serenaded by a live jazz band.
As they got there, a big ol’ ‘marry me’ sign popped up, and the man popped the question.
That’s not all!
Afterwards, the couple continued into a cave decorated with vintage cinema trinkets.
They then sat down in retro cinema seats and watched a video the groom had put together — including messages from their families and friends saying why they loved them. It was then that the celebrity appeared with a special message.
Once that was over, the doors to the cave opened up to a panoramic views, where a band played while the newly-engaged couple had a romantic dinner surrounded by flowers.
There was even a wishing-well with custom-made coins to commemorate the occasion.
Lavish doesn’t even begin to describe it. Can you imagine what he would’ve done if she’d said no?
