That's the big question, well aside from asking your girl to marry you. What's the point in hiring an engagement planner if you can just ask friends and find some idea on Pinterest? Why pay for something that you can find for free? That's the question I get asked a lot and my response is normally, "You get what you pay for." If you want to plan your proposal on your own with the help of Pinterest, don't expect it to go as smoothly as you think.
There are so many factors that go into proposals that most people don't take into consideration. For instance, what happens when you plan a sunset proposal but your girlfriend wants to get something to eat an hour before sunset? Are you going to say no we can't or eat really fast to make sure you get the perfect sunset in time for your plans while making her suspicious? That's just one example, but it goes to show that so many details come into play when planning and Pinterest doesn't take all of them into consideration. Not to mention, Pinterest proposals are the most overdone and predictable way possible to propose.
Engagement planners, such as myself, create a plan custom to your relationship. Knowing what makes you two you, what you love to do together, who she is when she's mad and how you bring her back to her softened heart. That's what I do and I create a plan that isn't just a basic layout of what's going to happen; it's a well thought out, detailed plan tailored to your relationship. What can be more meaningful than a proposal that expresses your relationship in a single moment?
