RedBalloon, Australia’s leading online experience and ‘things to do’ destination, have launched a personalised proposal service to take some of the stress out of popping the question.
Latest statistics from the ABS show 363,399 marriages took place in Australia between 2012 and 2014. That’s a lot of proposals, says Nick Baker, CEO at RedBalloon.
“We had many customers contacting us to help them choose the perfect proposal experience, which helped us identify a real need for a product range to assist men and women with one of life’s most special occasions. At RedBalloon we’re all about creating moments, so it was a perfect fit.”
“The aim of the service is to make life easier for those who may be time poor, or maybe just a little lost, when it comes to arranging such an event. We will help customers plan, design and implement a truly one-of-a-kind proposal experience. The only thing we can’t guarantee is that he or she will say yes!”
The service is currently available in NSW, Queensland and Victoria, with a highly curated range of unique and personalised experiences – from intimate proposals on private beaches and hot air balloon rides, to fireworks and treasure hunts! The service will roll out nationally by the end of 2016.
With a number of successful proposals already under their belt, the service is proving a hit with loved up couples. Happy customer David wrote a review of the aquarium private dining and proposal experience, sharing “Will you marry me? She said yes! The experience was magical and she loved it!”
David proposed ‘under the sea’ at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, enjoying a private dining experience surrounded by over 13,000 aquatic animals, such as sharks, turtles and dugongs. Included in the package: 2 course meal with drinks; private dining and table set up; after hours access and tour of the aquarium; and divers to help pop the question with a Will you marry me? banner.
How about popping the question as they are coming in to land on the beach after free falling at 200km per hour? Create the perfect proposal with this skydiving experience complete with Will You Marry Me? banner. The Skydive Over the Beach package includes: Tandem skydives for you and your partner; APF levy; use of Will You Marry Me? banner; ‘Gold’ video/photo package that features footage of both you and your partner jumping; seasonal bouquet of flowers from Simeon’s Florist; bottle of champagne; and the opportunity to organise to land before your partner so you can watch them land on bended knee, ready with the ring.
