Some Unusual Proposals Work… Some Don’t

Here at Manolo for the Brides, we are delighted with imagination and creativity. Because of that, I have to give it up for Greg, a Cincinnati gentleman who chose to offer his lady love, Dana, his heart through a Groupon coupon.

The bride-elect was offered a 100% discount on the deal, but of course there’s some fine print:

Nontransferable. Groupon entitled to no less than 15% of your marital bliss. Either party may develop a snoring problem. One or both participants will not always look like a 20-year-old. Good luck, you kids.

The lady said yes. I wish them both all happiness.

On the less successful end of the imaginative proposal scale, we find Anna Perez of Chicago who chose the truly unique tack of calling 911 as her boyfriend was trying to break up with her in hopes that the police would convince him to marry her instead.

The gentleman was not amused. Neither were the police. Perez remains single.

    mike proposed to me on livejournal, which was awesome in 2005, but would be just sad if it happened in 2010.

    @kt: That really is awesome for 2005. And I would still consider it kind of awesome under the right circumstances, even if it isn’t cutting edge anymore. Yes, even now in 2011.
