I'm actually not engaged yet, but I want to propose to my girlfriend soon. She knows I will be proposing soon and she always says "You better make it special, haha".
My town offers this Personalized Park Bench Dedication program where I can pay $350 and write anything on a bench. I'm planning to write:
[Name], my Everything,
Will You Marry Me?
(I'm limited to 2 lines, and 22 characters per line including spaces)
I''m also buying her her dream car, and she knows about it but does not know when I'll give it to her. So I'm thinking of combining the car surprise with the "bench proposal".
So far this is the plan:
1) Park the dream car next to the bench a day before proposing.
2) The next day, take her on a nice date. Before sunset, go to the park and BLINDFOLD her eyes. Then walk towards to the bench.
3) Surprise her with the car first.
4) At the peak of her joy, tell her that this is only the smaller surprise. Then take her to the bench, let her read the words written on it, then kneel down and propose!
So to all ladies out there:
Do you think it's a romantic, special proposal idea?
Any suggestions on what to write on the bench? Should I decorate the bench with flowers, pictures, etc?
Any suggestions on how to better combine the car surprise with the bench proposal?
Any suggestions on how to have it recorded (photos/videos)? She definitely does not want to have friends involved though...
Any suggestion is HIGHLY appreciated!!!
