Flash mob proposals may make for great video footage, but the new trend in popping the question is keeping it personal.
the proposal story is really amazing and i believe you will love it.
Soon to wed couple, Dami and Wale got engaged in August 2014 with an exciting proposal which happened at New York City’s Times Square with a flash mob – a seemingly random group of people dancing along to the same song – in this case, On Top Your Matter by Wizkid.
Three months into our relationship, I knew Dami was going to be my wife. Obviously, if someone is going to be your wife, you have to propose to her at some point … LOL … and so began the brainstorming on the perfect proposal. You see, Dami is a kind of girl that’s full of giant romantic fantasies, thanks to years of reading Mills and Boon. I sure had my work cut out for me. Which was fine though, because she is also the kind of girl that’s deserving of the proposal of her dreams. By this time in the relationship, we were already talking about the future. So of course, she knew a proposal was in the offing. She just didn’t know how or when.
We went to Hawaii together in March, 2014 and I knew she thought it may be happening there. But no way! It would take more than getting down on one knee at a beach in Maui to give Dami the surprise of her life. So the brainstorming continued. I knew there were three key ingredients to giving Dami the proposal of her dreams and eliminating any chance of her saying “NO”. 1. It had to be at a place close to her heart (Maui wasn’t a candidate), 2. Family/friends had to be around 3. It had to be grand.
Then one day, while I was working out at the gym, I had a light bulb moment. I knew exactly what to do. And so I got to work, making phone calls, and researching. One of the first things I had to do was to figure out Dami’s ring size. Enter Agent Flakky Chan (Dami’s elder sister) who executed this task with precision. Another person I got on the phone with was Lupe, Dami’s favorite cousin. She was so stoked when I told her about the plan, and signed up immediately. I also involved some of Dami’s close friends in her favorite city, texting back and forth with them, sometimes even while Dami was right next to me.
The last piece in the puzzle was planning a trip to New York. That was the easiest part of the job, since Dami LOVES New York. Well, I got Dami into New York, threw in her favourite song at the time, and the rest, as they say, is history.
