Have you heard the latest news from the world of wedding planning? An extreme-marriage-proposal fan turned his marriage proposal to a rescue operation, with a helicopter and all… The idea about the once-in-a-lifetime experience he had in mind was to climb the 580-foot Morro Rock (which is totally illegal to climb, by the way) and propose to his girlfriend via FaceTime.
What he didn’t quite think through, though, was his climbing down as he ended up stranded on a thin ledge just about 150 feet above the ground. It took a rescue crew and a helicopter to end his marriage proposal fiasco!
This recent story from the news provoked us to dig deeper in the history of the most extreme marriage proposals and give you the best of them. If you need some extreme inspiration for your one-of-a-kind wedding proposal, read on and take notes:
Popping the question at zero gravity
Forget about the fancy restaurants and the Champaign flutes with a diamond ring hidden inside! One of the most extreme ways to pop the question is to get your Bride to Be on a specially designed Boeing 727. Make her heart skip a beat while you bring out the diamond ring during the several minutes’ plunge creating a near-zero gravity effect for you and a truly unforgettable experience for her!
Showing your future fiancé how hot you are
If you have what it takes, you can do what a guy named Todd did – he set up a special stunt in front of the eyes of his family and friends that they would never forget. He launched himself off a specially created platform after setting himself on fire! There was a swimming pool he jumped right into, of course. When he got out of the water, he told his future wife she made him hot and he was on fire for her. Then he popped the question. Nice, huh?
The multimillion ad commercial proposal
If you want a truly romantic and unique proposal idea, think about proposing via a TV commercial in the prime time of your future wife’s favorite TV show. Yes, it takes a lot of money to do that (we are talking 7 figures here), but you can do what a guy named Rand did. He created a detailed plan on how to make his extreme marriage proposal idea a reality and managed to crowdsource the $2.5 million dollars he needed to create a truly memorable marriage proposal experience for the love of his life.
Make a celebrity pop the question
If your future fiancé has a favorite celebrity, you can go the extra mile and arrange said celebrity record a short video in which they ask your sweetheart to marry you. Do what cameraman Joao Martins did – he asked Tom Cruise to record a short video clip that was played on a local TV channel. In the clip, Tom Cruise says, “Sonia, you have to marry Joao. Please marry Joao. He is crying behind the camera.” There is one drawback to this approach, though – you shouldn’t invite a sex idol as your girl may get confused and say yes to him instead of you!
