Public vs Private Proposals

A marriage proposal is a special thing between two lucky in love people. Or, so it used to be. 2013 brought an onslaught of very public proposals starting with Kanye West’s Jumobtron proposal to Kim Kardashian and filtering through the rest of the country with outrageous public proposals from flash mobs to fireworks to marching bands. These once private and small proposals have grown to very large and public proportions thanks to social media sites like Youtube and Twitter. Now with the click of a button you can tune into what once was a private moment between two people.

Much to the chagrin of hopeful grooms, there is now more pressure than ever to have a spectacularly outlandish marriage proposal. Last year 36% of brides using the popular wedding planning website reported having public proposals, a statistic up 32% from data collected in 2009. And once these public proposals are over, women are as eager as ever to publicly share their excitement. According to a 2012 survey conducted by TheKnot and Men’s Health magazine, 12% of women admitted to changing their Facebook status and uploading photos of their rings before calling friends and family to share the happy news.

All of this pressure and anxiety has been capitalized on by entrepreneurs in New York City, and San Francisco. Not sure how to propose to your significant other?
