Chicago Proposal Idea You Won’t Forget

By Marvin,

What does a cardboard cutout of a Hummer, a pedicab, and 6 actors all have in common? Together they made for the best Chicago proposal of all time! When we first met Mark, we knew right away that he had a great sense of humor. In fact, laughter was pretty much the foundation for his relationship with Giselle so we wanted to make sure we helped Mark give her a proposal that would keep her laughing and smiling for years to come. How did we do that? With our years of experience in proposal planning, we planted actors throughout Millennium Park to re-enact scenes from Mark and Giselle’s relationship.

We first booked a pedicab tour of Chicago for the couple.  But Giselle quickly realized, this was no ordinary tour.  First, she passed by a couple who were eating clumsily at a restaurant.  A coincidence?  Maybe.  But then Mark talked about how they clumsily ate on their first date and the couple had a good chuckle.  Next they drove by a couple standing on the sidewalk with a sign saying “That’s enough.”  Giselle knew that had to be for her because that is THEIR saying.  Finally, they drove by a couple in a cardboard cutout of a Hummer and the guy was being chased by a bee.  Giselle and Mark laughed so hard about their road trip where he freaked out because a bee got in the car.

The pedicab dropped them off at The Bean where, to Giselle’s surprise, her whole family was waiting there along with a guitarist playing their song. Mark proposed and she of course said yes.
