The Perfect Proposal, is a site specialising in creating romantically unique experiences that bring occasions to life through design, organisation and coordination. From planning the perfect proposal, to assisting with your wedding planning and even the selection of the best-suited rings for you as couple, Pippa Lund and her team know how to get that personal touch just right. We've asked her a few questions below around your imminent Valentines Day celebrations...
Love or hate Valentines day, it offers the perfect excuse to spend time with the one you love! Whether you have something big planned or it’s just a small gesture, it's always important to create new memories and spend quality time together. If you're anti consumerism - I suggest thinking of it like this says Pippa "Life is so busy, that we do occasionally need to take a day out to make the effort to celebrate special occasions and the people in your life. It needn't be more than that. Well thought-out gestures can have huge value too."
'A perfect Valentine’s Day engagement is her saying YES of course, but having all the smaller details in place and both partners enjoying their day we consider that perfect. It’s important for them to be comfortable and happy! While you want to pre-plan, take our advice, enjoy every moment and don’t forget to stop, breathe and take it all in. Remember it’s a story that is told for generations to come!'
'My advice is to remember to keep it very personal! If your partner loves nature or the beach, try arranging a romantic picnic for two in your favourite spot. If you love the movies, enjoy an outside movie experience with Galileo open aired cinema’s. Tailor it to them and what they usually feel most comfortable and happy doing- then turn it up a notch by personalising the experience a little more or by adding in a small gesture to show how much you care-you can't go wrong with that!'
"Sharing a new experience is an excellent way to spend extra time together whilst also having fun learning or trying something different. Cooking lessons are such fun, get hold of your local cooking school and experience a romantic dinner for two after creating a 5 star dish together. We also love Lindt’s Chocolate Studio for the perfect combination of chocolate and romance."
