A massive day at the Bride & Groom Show yesterday at the Ellerslie Event Centre.

We also spoke to a few people at the Bride & Groom Show about their upcoming Wedding and gave out quotes at the time. Don’t forget if you didn’t get a chance to talk to us at the show there is still a chance to take advantage of our Bride & Groom Show “Show Special” of 20% off. Just head over to our contact page and submit a quote enquiry and tell us you saw us at the show to be eligible for the discount too. A reminder the Bride & Groom Show offer is only available till this Friday 12 May and you need to have confirmed your booking and paid the minimum $100 deposit before then.

We’ve made our website as informative as possible in the hope we can give you a good idea on what we do, what we offer and answer any questions you may have. Have a good look around and if you have any questions or want further details please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

Will You Marry Me? The Wedding Proposal

Popping the question is something that most men struggle with…what do you say? How do you say it? Will she say ‘yes’…? Here’s a few things to help you get your Wedding proposal out…don’t take too long though!



Location is all-important in the world of proposal ideas, and if chosen correctly may do most of the work for you. If you’ve a holiday planned out, research romantic locations in your chosen destination before you go, but be prepared to be flexible if things don’t work out as planned. Maybe there’s a special spot for the two of you closer to home: the scene of your first date, or a favourite place you both share.


A creative Wedding proposal will make your intended target feel special. It’s something you’ve thought about, something personal to you as a couple and something that won’t be repeated.


Stunts, gimmicks and tricks can work well, but as with the creativity idea, don’t feel you have to go for something overly elaborate as there’s a greater chance of things going wrong. Here’s a simple idea…have friends set up a romantic picnic, which you can just stumble upon.

Public or private

You’ll know better than anyone whether your bride-to-be is the type who likes to be the centre of attention or someone who would gnaw off her own leg to avoid being on camera. If she’s likes a bit of attention, a public proposal might go down well, so why not throw a party, propose at a sporting event or get a plane to fly over spelling out the words in the sky. If not, it’s best to keep the proposal between the two of you.

Take the hint

Have you ever talked about Wedding proposal ideas together? If so, can you remember what she said? Can any of her mates help you out (providing they can keep their mouths shut obviously). Your girlfriend may have a very specific idea of how she’d like to be proposed to, and if so, it’s your job to make sure you don’t disappoint. If you’re thinking long term, try and slip a conversation in about proposals, perhaps prompted by some friends who’ve recently announced their engagement.

Be honest

When it comes to working out what to say, there’s no right or wrong way. You don’t have to recite a poem, you don’t have to read a script. All you need to do is tell her how you feel. Yes that sounds hard but the way you feel is what she really wants to hear and if she knows how you feel, it’s going to be all the more special. It can be one sentence, or a few lines…either way speak from the heart and she’s bound to melt in your hand. Then just ask the question, ‘Will you marry me?”, I’m sure she’ll say “Yes!” no matter what you’ve chosen to do or say asking her to be your wife.
