Engagement proposal: Tiffany & Co. Cupcake

Engagement proposal: Tiffany & Co. Cupcake

Inspiration

All those Flashmobs and musical proposal you will find on the internet made me feel very unsatisfied when I was looking for an inspirational engagement proposal. On the one hand all those proposals are very cute, but on the other hand in my opinion an engagement proposal should be something very personal and because everyone does those proposal it is very random. So I thought that my engagement idea should be very personal and maybe something that can only fit to this special couple.

Who? (with who?)

Amy (29 years old) is a young woman, who works as a journalist. She grew up in the USA in a small town near to New York. She grew up with the dream to live in her future in Manhattan in a beautiful apartment. So she worked really hard to let her dream come true.

Alexander (31 years old) is an smart man, who is an architect and loves to travel the world. He is from Germany and grew up in Münster. His life goal has always been to build his own house for his family in a big city.

Amy and Alexander met 5 years ago in New York City. Alexander was in New York for 2 weeks to write an report for his university about all those special buildings in New York. It was his first time in BigApple and so you can imagine that a young architect in a city with lots of high buildings fell really fast in love with the city. So he was just walking around the streets and looking at all those buildings and tried to note everything for his report when he finally came to Time Square where he had to stand for some couple of minutes to realize that this really happens.

At the same time, Amy’s boss gave her the task for today. She had to write about the best cupcake in New York City and she had to find one cupcake which is inspired by a brand. So Amy went to 10 high rated cupcake stores in NYC and finally got a cupcake inspired by Tiffany & Co. After getting all those different cupcakes to try them she went to the Time Square, because this is here favorite place in NYC and she wants to visit it as many times as possible. But then someone ruined her day, because a man ran accidentally into her and all the cupcakes fell to the ground and were uneatable. She was so angry and shouted at him until he was looking at him. And there was Alexander. He apologized many times and came up with the idea, that he will take the costs and go with here to every cupcake store and buy her new cupcakes.

During their day in NYC they got to know each other and after 10 cupcakes they also changed numbers.

And this was the beginning of the love story from Amy and Alexander. 2 years after their first meeting the moved together in a small apartment in a suburb from NYC.

What?

Alexander want to make a marriage proposal to Amy after a 5 year relationship.

When?

At their 5th anniversary.

Where?

Times Square, NYC where everything begun and a new chapter will start.

Why?

They have been in a relationship for 5 years and are truly in love with each other and the already gone through thick and thin during those past 5 years.

How?

Alexander organized that there will be a small table and two chairs on the middle of Times Square. He tell her that they will walk through NYC for a while and then they will eat in a restaurant where he reserved. Alexander will get her to Times Square and guide her to the table and tell her to sit down. On the table are 9 cupcakes which are hidden under a scarf. He sit down aswell and start to talk about the day they first met and that he fell in love at first sight with here at this place.

Then he take the scarf away and 9 cupcakes on which stand “Will u marry me” appear. Then he will get out a little box which looks like a box from Tiffany & Co. with the last cupcake inside that they had to find again 5 years ago. He will go to his knees and gave her this box now open.The cupcake is a bit different, because at the top of it, there is now an engagement ring from Tiffany & Co.

After she said hopefully “yes” they will let the evening end with a walk back home and eating these cupcakes again together and with lots of love and happiness.

 

This engagement proposal is of course at a very public place, but the story and the gestures make it so personal what I wanted to have.

Wedding Theme: Tiffany & Co.

Wedding Theme: Tiffany & Co.

The wedding theme Tiffany & Co. is inspired by the brand Tiffany & Co. and its typical colours white and tiffany blue. Also the Wedding should have a lot of sparkle, because of the sparkling jewellery that Tiffany & Co. offer. To explain this wedding theme, I decided it in to categories with a lot of pictures, which makes it easier to understand the idea of this theme.

To start this wedding with the perfect invitation card, this is the perfect solution.

The ideal venue

The most important thing, when you start to organize a wedding is to find the perfect venue. The ideal venue for this tiffany blue, white and sparkling wedding should be a white castle with a beautiful garden. The wedding it self would be outside in the garden and then the celebration will be inside this gorgeous castle. Best place would be around New York because the brand Tiffany & Co. is from New York.

And the best location that can handle these criteria is the Oheka Castle in Huntington, New York.

Just have a look at this beautiful castle in the following picture.

And also the huge garden in which a wedding ceremony perfectly fit. Have a look.

And also the rooms for the celebration are really sparkling and perfect for this pretentious wedding theme!

Just looking at this picture let me perfectly imagine all those people celebrating in white and tiffany blue with a sparkle in their eyes.

Wedding attire for the bride and groom

Based on the wedding theme also the wedding attire for the bride and the groom should be kept in white and tiffany blue. To see what I mean, it is easier to see on the following pictures.

This picture shows the bride and her bridesmaids. The bridesmaids wear tiffany blue dresses and the bride is in typical white with white flowers.

But also the bride should have something in the color of the theme. So this shoes would fit perfect into the wedding theme.

In this picture you can see the groom and the best men. The groom wears a suit in beige and the best men also. But  the difference is that the best men wear tiffany blue ties and tiffany blue west. This also fits perfect with the bride and the bridesmaids.

Food, beverage and wedding cakes

The dinner should be pompous as well to fit in the wedding theme. It should be a there course dinner with some good dishes.

This cake is really in style with the Tiffany & Co. theme but also very personal by adding the family name of the couple on the top as you can this in this picture with the family name Moore.

Music and entertainment

During the ceremony there will be a small string band to get the perfect feeling for a pompous Tiffany & Co. wedding.

For the music there will be an DJ in the evening, who plays every song the guests and the couple want to dance to.

Transportation to and from the ceremony to the reception

Since the wedding will take place only in one place no transportation is needed. The only thing that needs to be organized, that taxis are available if guests and of course the bride and groom wish to get to their hotels, since it can be assumed that only guests come from outside and no one will go home.

They can also get to bed with this charming carriage, because the Oheka Castle in Huntington, New York also offers bedrooms because there is an hotel included.
