Marriage Proposals can definitely be nerve wracking events, particularly for the person doing the proposing. One of our readers, Arshpreet Singh, went out of his way to make his proposal creative, unique and unforgettable! Watch the video …this proposal might be the coolest, the most romantic one you’ve ever watched! All we can say is: Balraj is one lucky girl!
Here are the details from Arshpreet Singh, the mastermind behind the whole thing.
” We had talked about getting engaged a while ago, but I did not want it to be just another regular kind of proposal. I wanted to do something different in order to make Balraj feel special. Meanwhile, I had witnessed a flash mob in sector 17, Chandigarh which was focused on a more generic cause. Right there, the idea of mixing the flash mob with a wedding proposal came to my mind. The idea became more substantial after I a watched few videos on YouTube related to this.
The biggest challenge was to doing this “Flash Mob Wedding Proposal” in Chandigarh (while I live & work in Noida). So the first thing which I started was to work on the music part. I spent some time in deciding the right songs that I felt would be perfect to be played during this flash mob. First, I picked up the amazing Valentine Mashup by DJ Kiran Kamath (for that Hindi flavor), I then mixed (the famous) Macklemore Thrift Shop with (her favorite) JK & Tru-Skool – Jaddhu, later added a line from Diljit Dosanjhs- Mr Singh and finally ended it with the most apt song “Marry You by Bruno Mars”. I mixed all of these together and made a single 8 minutes track.
Then I started searching for a dance crew in Chandigarh during the weekends and after multiple meetings with many dance academies and choreographers, I finally found few dancers who looked promising and enthusiastic about the flash mob wedding proposal idea.
I later contacted Elante Mall Management team and discussed about this event with them. It wasn’t easy and took around 3 weeks to convince them to get their approval. Finding the DJ who would setup the speakers system in the Mall and find the bouncers who will provide the security to dancers (just in case) were the next steps.
The next critical part was finding the camera crew that would understand the concept and record in HD. I intentionally did not hire Music Video Director in order to optimize the costs. I found a decent camera crew who understood the concept and briefed them about the recording angles and my other requirements. They did a great job in capturing the whole event. I took the content from the camera crew post the event and spent around 2 days editing the video.
The event was a pure success. She had no idea about it; it looked like we were watching a regular dance performance until I joined the dance group. That’s when all her emotions came out. I could see tears in her eyes at one moment and at the other moment she couldn’t stop laughing. My sister also gave a fabulous performance along with me and was there to control my girl and kept her standing. I could feel her shivering while I was putting the ring at the end of the performance. It all ended with 100 strangers congratulating us and a few people getting their pictures clicked with us. It was our special unforgettable moment and a memory of a lifetime.”
Now that is what we call “putting the spin on a classic wedding proposal!”
