It's been 4 years since I've met my beautiful, bubbly, sometimes shy & loving girlfriend. I've known her for a long time and asking for the ladies & gentlemen of pricescope to help me on the journey
Both ideas start by her thinking she's going to dinner/somewhere with a friend/family. Whilst she is away I will be setting up at the back garden. When she gets back and enters the house I would have a short clip playing on a tv about the journey to that moment (glimpses of me collecting the ring, asking for her parents permission and all the funny snippets of the moments leading up to that day). When it ends someone like her sister/nieces/friend would guide her to the backyard where the garden would be filled with candles, flowers and lights and with me waiting for her there.
Also the two variants are
1. I do it at her home so she's in a place where she is comfortable and with her family around (however that takes away the privacy of the moment) and the wow factor of it being new and different.
2. I find a lodge/AirBNB with a beautiful garden or lake at the back but would be harder to execute/surprise her as it would have to be some where further away from our homes but would be a unique place making it feel special.
So anxious, nervous and excited!!! Thoughts & opinions?
