It’s been months since I last updated this page and recently, I’ve been thinking about writing a new post. I just wasn’t able to do it right away because I’ve been kind of preoccupied lately. But what better day to start blogging again than on my birth month, September! (It’s my birthday on September 5, by the way.)
So today, I’ll be sharing to you about this mob marriage proposal pulled off by my friend Edcris for his girlfriend, Alyn. Last August 10, he posted a question on our group’s facebook page, asking us for suggestions for a crazy idea on a marriage proposal. And I was like, waaaaah! It just really excites me to be part of something like surprise marriage proposals! And my mind went crazy thinking about all those sweet and “kilig” marriage proposal ideas!
I suggested doing a mob proposal, because I’ve really been fascinated with all those mob proposals I see on Youtube. He agreed with the idea, and thankfully, the other members of our group were also more than willing to participate.
We scheduled a practice for the mob dance last August 17 but was cancelled due to Typhoon Maring. And we didn’t really have the chance to practice after that. We only got to practice the night before the actual proposal. The song that was used was What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction. We just familiarized ourselves with the steps and left everything else to God! lol!
On the day of the proposal, which was yesterday, September 1, we were met with a heavy traffic on our way to the venue, Luneta Park in Manila. There was this Alay Lakad thing going on in the area so we were forced to walk 1 and half kilometers to reach the place on time.
But thankfully, we made it just in time and we were able to pull it off well (uhm, not so well on the dancing part! haha). Edcris had to wait for Alyn’s answer for a few minutes because she suddenly got shy due to the number of people who crowded in on them, also eager for her answer. Here are the few photos I managed to snap:
Congratulations Ed and Alyn! ^_^
