Marriage proposal

Une étape importante de la vie

The evolution of society, mores and mentalities has joyfully turned the tradition upside down. If men are still the majority at the origin of the marriage proposal, it is more and more common today for a young woman to take the initiative and ask her lover to marry her.

In same-sex couples, lovers wear the colours of romanticism high, staging their marriage proposal in sometimes unusual or spectacular ways. Let us not forget “older” marriages, renewals of marriage vows, or even remarriages, which are all pretexts to ask or ask again for the hand of the woman or man we love!

Many lovers wonder: “Where and how will he (she) ask? “How to surprise him/her”? Highly symbolic and emotional, the proposal, whether or not it is the first time, is an important moment in any love story.

Once Upon a Time helps you to make this great moment an unforgettable one. You wish to make your request in an unusual or romantic place? How about New York? At the top of a Manhattan skyscraper, by putting a knee down in the Central Park rink, or by posting your request on giant advertising screens in Time Square?  Do you dream of a sunset by the ocean or at the top of the Pilat dune? We will find the best place for you to apply and make it unique for both of you.

Do you have a clear idea of how you would like to ask him for his hand?
We will help you to script the event, sparing the effect of surprise and ensuring that the timing is perfect. From Champagne to a bouquet of red roses, without forgetting to bring a photographer to immortalize the moment: we will make your wedding proposal a moment out of time that you and your loved one will remember all your life.
