Working at Weddingbells has given me the opportunity to be privy to a lot of interesting and creative engagement proposals that make you go “aww!”. But yesterday, I got wind of this online proposal that really takes the cake. No literally, it does. And, you’ll see why. One of my must-read blogs, Bakerella (who has some of the most inspiring sweet ideas btw), posted this amazing online proposal via her blog. Basically, this guy Rich had e-mailed Bakerella saying how inspiring her website was to his girlfriend Mel. This is what he wrote to Bakerella:
I hope all is well with you. I must be honest, the only reason why I know of you is because my girlfriend is such an avid fan of yours! Every Monday she shows me your latest creation. Feeling inspired, she proceeds to either replicate one of your creations or put her own twist on it. I of course benefit from the delicious goodies
Anyhow, my girlfriend’s name is Melissa and she’s began her own blog recently and has been enjoying it immensely. I bought her a fancy camera to document her process as well so it’s been a great experience for her. She spends countless hours in the kitchen baking and then on the computer updating the blog.
Melissa and I have been together for almost 6 years now and I would like to take the next step and propose to her! As a guy, we must think of that genius way of how exactly to pop the question. Well, I had a thought and this is really just a thought but was wondering how open you were in assisting me with that process?
This is a complete shot in the dark and just one of my ideas but I thought she’d really enjoy it. Once again, no obligation and please do not feel compelled to assist…after all I am a complete stranger!
Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
Intrigued by the proposal, Bakerella and Rich cooked up a sweet idea. Using her regular blogging technique, Bakerella wrote about creating wedding cake pops. And, for the proposal part? Well, here’s how Rich popped the question.
Wasn’t that sweet?! Kudos to you Rich for thinking outside the box.
