Think It Through for Popping The Question

Think it Through This Thursday! Lot’s of T’s I know but take this alliteration to heart when you start planning your marriage proposal.

Think it Through…Pause, choreograph the proposal in your mind from step a-z. It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of the proposal, as you should, but think of it like a dance, making each step count. Do you need to make reservations? Will you need help setting up the proposal sight and who will help? Draw up a timeline. Think it all the way through to make the day go as smooth as possible. It will eliminate unnecessary angst so you can concentrate on the purpose of the day.

Think it Through…Think about your soon-to-be fiance’s favorites: foods, places, personal qualities. Add these favorites into your marriage proposal.

Think it Through…Consider how she makes you feel. Think about what you love about her. Is she silly, kind, creative, strong? As you are mulling over the questions, write down your thoughts. This will make it easier for you to recall and express your feelings during the proposal. You want to be able to fully embrace the day. No matter how long you’ve been dating, most guys are nervous at the time of the proposal so think it through to make it smooth!

Think it Through…So you’ve decided on the place. She loves camping. You know a perfect spot on the lake. We have vacation days in August. Good, done deal you say! Nope…you’re not done. Did you think about all the flying insects in August and how they could easily be snacking on you? Did you think about making campsite reservations which are often full in the summertime? How will you make it special and separate from a regular camping trip? A camping location can be a beautiful setting for a proposal but not if you don’t think through each detail. Think it Through!

Proposal Feature: Marriage Proposal on QVC

Adam was determined to propose on QVC. Why you ask? I was thinking the same thing. I was intrigued to read why he chose this channel when so many guys go for ESPN or jumbo trons when comes to popping the question in public; I was SO THRILLED for Eleanor to hear her guy was totally tuned into things she loves…QVC being one of them. Bravo Adam! I had to share their sweet proposal video and Adam’s side of their engagement story because it just goes to show, when it comes to proposals, anything can be done with some effort. Plus, they are just so darn cute together!

Eleanor & I were engaged on QVC on February 24th 2012. Here’s how it all happened… 

From our very first date two and a half years ago when I walked in her house and she had QVC on in the background, it didn’t take long for me to realize how much she was infatuated with the shopping channel.

Fast forward to today, if you were to ever walk in our front door you would see the television on ESPN or QVC depending on who had control of the remote. I literally fall asleep to QVC on in the background each and every night. Once I started thinking of proposing to Eleanor, I realized I wanted it to be original and that is when I thought how meaningful it would be if I did something involving QVC.

In November of last year I reached out to QVC with my idea of being a guest host and popping the question on live television. They responded and informed me it was out of there means to pull it off and wasn’t going to be possible.

Inspired by my favorite quote by Winston Churchill, “never, never, never give up” I didn’t give up…

I instead found the contact information for Larry Denney, QVC manager of studio and tours. He was excited about Eleanor’s infatuation with QVC and loved my proposal idea. He jumped right on board, rounded up a group at QVC to help in the planning process and that’s when my crazy thought came to life.

Idea after idea and months and months of planning the QVC proposal was finally set. The hard part was keeping it a surprise, which meant getting Eleanor to the QVC studios in West Chester, Pennsylvania without her suspecting a thing. For our two year anniversary I decided to give Eleanor a QVC a goody package which included two all access VIP tour tickets. She was thrilled, did not have a clue and we were off on a weekend I knew we’d never forget.

Eleanor and I arrived at the QVC studios both excited and nervous, for obviously very different reasons. With ring in pocket I was ready to go. We took the studio tour, seeing everything from production to a live taping. While on our tour a producer approached and asked if we would take part in a “Customer Appreciation Video”. How could the biggest fan not want to talk all things QVC? She agreed and we were headed to a studio for the big moment. Micked up and cameras rolling Eleanor gushed about her fascination with the shopping network. After several questions from the prouder it was finally my time to ask the most important question of all. With her hand in mine I popped down on one knee, took her breath away, pulled out the ring and she said yes!

Eleanor was not the only person surprised that day. QVC arranged to have her favorite host, David Venable, come out with a cake and a bottle of champagne to toast the special occasion. With us both shocked and elated we celebrated a moment that was truly unbelievable.

The proposal was perfect. She was beyond surprised and I was more than thrilled to ask the woman of my dreams to be mine forever.

Our toes still have not reached the ground. We can’t wait for the many more celebrations to come…
