The Instagram engagement. It’s a big deal. People often post their engagement pictures just moments after they’ve got the ring on their finger, not wasting a moment to share the news with friends and family. Or to show off your new ring.
The commonness of people seeing an Instagram proposal feels like almost a daily event.
Put a ring on it
For some people, the proposal is equally as important, if not more important than their actual wedding.
The bigger the better
The more extravagant the proposal, the more they love each other, right?
The bar is set pretty high for fancy proposals and it keeps getting higher.
Over the top
Everyone knows wedding videos, but the new thing is to have proposal videos too. We could basically call these documentaries because they are so long and drawn out, but people really live for the extravagance.
We’re all freaking out for you and equally as excited.
Tell the world
The sooner you share it on the internet, the harder you celebrate. It’s almost instant to find out when someone gets engaged.
It feels like proposals are getting more stressful because it has to be absolutely perfect. The perfect ring, the perfect picture, the perfect setting. It’s a lot of pressure.
Rise above expectations
One couple just blew proposal standards out of the water, above and beyond what the internet has seen before.
Dennis Brown II decided to go above and beyond.
Not only did he hire an an event planning and styling firm, a professional photographer, florist and set design firm to capture the perfect moment, but he presented his soon-to-be fiance, Atara Dallas, with 6 (yes, you heard that right) different engagement rings.
Dallas ended up choosing the ring with the teardrop-shaped diamond.
And obviously, she said yes.
But it didn’t end there…
Brown went the extra mile by printing a massive poster of his most intimate, tender feelings for Dallas, which you can see in the photos behind him as he kneels.
The words say:
“Today, on your special day I had the pleasure of putting a smile on your face all day. For there is no greater gift that I could think to give you.
A woman, whose heart is full of love and devotion to me, a woman whose loyalty to all those she loves stands unmatched, a woman whose generosity and willingness to help others around her flourish knows no depths.
A woman who single-handedly made me believe that a soulmate, a lover, a prayer warrior, a confidant and a best friend could be wrapped up in one amazingly beautiful soul that was handcrafted for me.
That’s why today I wanted to give you the greatest gift that I could ever give you……my heart and soul completely, unwavering and all yours……will you accept and hold my hand in yours through this journey?”
So far, people have a lot of reactions to the proposal. But we simply say congratulations to the happy couple!
