Engagement Proposal – Mardi Gras, New Orleans

Engagement Proposal – Mardi Gras, New Orleans

The proposal, another aspect of the wedding that the bride dreams about, however the groom stereotypically dreads! Wedding proposals may follow traditions such as, the prospective groom asking the brides father for her hand in marriage before hand or the potential groom getting down on one knee. Each aspect to the lead up of the proposal, much like your wedding is personal.

Many proposals that have grasped the attention of the online world have done so because they are totally unique. Uniqueness is created through the proposals revolving around the personal aspects on which the couples relationship is based

The proposals above all have one thing in common, they have been thoroughly planned to suit the couple relationship, each have unique factors and they shows what a relationship can develop from and develop into. There is also an incredible blog called ‘How He Asked’ , this blog shares stories of how couples got engaged and is well worth a read. And ladies, I advise that you have your tissues at the ready when researching proposals!

Proposal 1 stimulated my initial proposal idea through reconnecting the engagement concept with an old memory and whereby the memory holds a strong aspect importance within the couples relationship.

Who? and Why?

My proposal concept is for Liam (26) and Jayne (23) a couple who met at Greenhead College, England through their mutual love of music, Jazz music in particular. Six years on, after meeting in Jazz Band Liam has decided to fly them out to New Orleans, where Jazz Music originated and where their favourite Jazz musician, Louis Armstrong was born.

Where? and When?

Liam has booked to visit New Orleans over the period of Shrove Tuesday and the beginning of Lent so that they can experience the largest Mardi Gras Festival, alongside experiencing the musical atmosphere and the historically Jazz orientated state.

Here James will reserve a table for the two of them to enjoy the Carnival passing by and the buzz it creates as well as sharing and reminiscing about their love of Jazz music and how it brought them together in the first place.

How?

One of the many traditional aspects surrounding the Mardi Gras is for items, mainly beads to be thrown off the floats into the gathering crowds, this is said to represent ‘virtual out-of-body experiences.’ The Maison Bourbon Jazz Club has been reviewed as “although not being on the ground level, we still managed to catch beads, confetti and other items thrown off the floats.” Therefore James will ‘pretend’ to catch a item thrown from the float and turn around to pass it on to Jayne, however as he does so he will get down on one knee to propose. These items caught that are said to represent the ‘virtual out-of-body experience’ will be handed alongside the engagement ring (providing she says yes!).
