Go with Tradition

Sometimes it is best to go with tradition. Using an old favourite is never a cliche when it comes to marriage proposals. A ring hidden in a glass of champagne or a dessert. A beautiful sunset back drop, a declaration of love in a crowd. All of these and many, many more have been done time and time again and have not disappointed! And don’t forget – if you’re sticking with tradition don’t forget to ask the father of the bride for his blessing first.
