Planning on proposing sometime soon, but need some help making the proposal absolutely perfect? Say hello to The Proposers, a team of marriage proposal planning specialists that create once-in-a-lifetime moments expertly tailored to set the scene and ambience for when and how you pop the question. To date, they have planned more than 1,500 proposals that have involved some elaborately thought out requests including bespoke songwriting, dressing cats as waiters, and flashing up a proposal on the screens of Time Square. Intrigued? Founder, Daisy Amodio, tells us more…
“We’ve worked with people from all walks of life – from sports stars and royalty with unlimited budgets, to everyday people like you and me who just want to do something special for the one they love. Translate that to budgets, and to date proposals we’ve planned have ranged from £1,000 to £800,000, although the average spend is £2,500.”
Based in Soho, The Proposers receives many enquiries from LGBTQ couples. Those that seek out their help either have a great idea that they need help pulling off, or want to create the perfect proposal but don’t know how they want to structure it or what they want to do.
“Some people want something simple, but straight-forward, like a private, candlelit dinner at the Shangri La at The Shard with the room all decked out with their partners’ favourite flowers, and a musician playing in the background. Others want something more left-field. Recently we had someone who wanted to propose to his cat-obsessed partner, so we hired out a cat café for afternoon tea, had a jazz singer write and sing a song for them about cats, and dressed 50 cats as waiters, with one of them carrying the ring.”
And that’s not as out there are requests get.
“We’ve helped one client fake a partner’s drug arrest, we’ve hired Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Foxx as part of a proposal, and we’ve even clambered down into a remote cave in the Lake District to set up a romantic, fairy-light-lit picnic for a caving enthusiast to propose in.”
Proposals are very personal. And that’s why Daisy believes her job and that of her team, is the best job in the world.
“It’s not just because of the variety it brings, but because of the relationships that are formed. People trust us to orchestrate one of the most important moments in their lives and in doing so we often get to know them very well, and become friends. It’s an honour to help them organise something so intimate and important and that’s why we always put our heart and souls into every single proposal we help curate.”
