Chief Designer and CEO of Wedding Bands & Co. Koorosh Daneshgar speaks of an experience he recently had during a family outing, and how important it is to make a strong impression with your proposal:
“This past weekend, my family and I visited the Chicago Conservatory in Garfield Park. If you’ve never been before, the Conservatory is a large greenhouse, filled and surrounded with thousands of beautiful and exotic plants from all around the world. It’s truly a breathtaking experience, and I highly encourage you to visit sometime. It was very relaxing to walk around with nature, observing and becoming inspired by it.
What was interesting, however, was what I found inside one of the greenhouse rooms proper. After following the spiraling path through the building, one comes upon a small waterfall-turned-wishing well. It was filled with coins, of course, but what really got to me was the fact that the coins were arranged, rather than randomly tossed. I’ll let this video I took speak for itself.”
“It’s simple, but unforgettable. Engagements can be big and flashy or small and private, and anywhere in between – but the important thing is that they are memorable. You only get one chance, after all! To me, the proposal is just as important as the ring you’re trying to wow your partner with. You need to be creative like this person, you need to have the kind of touch that makes that moment truly your own. It needs to be something that you’ll look back at for years to come. After all, the ring can always be changed or upgraded later – but you only get one chance for your partner to say ‘Yes!'”
