Wedding Proposal Ideas -Why Not Pop the Question in Print?

Some proposals happen on a mountain top. Some happen while she's brushing her teeth. Whether you prefer extravagant or the subtle wedding proposal ideas, you are going to want to commemorate this very special milestone. That's why we are obsessed with the latest trend of memorializing your marriage proposal by creating a printed  book.  With so many different photo book publishing sites out there, we of course, have our favorites. The truth is we go to different sites for different projects but for a book of this importance, Blurb is the best (and only) choice. Although slightly more complicated to use, the quality of the book far exceeds that of the competition. In fact Blurb is actually the go to publisher for many professionals creating artistic portfolios and coffee table books and not just us wannabe's :).   Here are a few ideas on how to craft the most creative “Will You Marry Me?” chronicle. Remember – to do it right, all good ideas take time to both plan out and to execute well but for a project like this it is definitely time well spent!

  • Create a beautiful photo essay of your relationship. Include photos of where you met, special pieces from your first date, scenes from your favorite events. Use the pictures to tell a silent story of your love and then complete this happy ending with a picture of you and a sign asking for her hand.
  • Write a children's book where the main characters are you and your beloved. Print the book with Blurb, then have it put onto the shelves at your local library. Take her on a reading date and “stumble” across the book. (Just remind her that you're in the library and she'll have to tone down those shrieks of joy.)
  • Is your beloved a foodie? Make her a Blurb cookbook of love! Ask your family and friends for their favorite recipes and put them together into one book, complete with pictures. Add in your own recipe of love with ingredients that include moments from your courtship. Just be sure that when the relationship is fully baked, you ask about the final course – a lifetime of sweet memories.

Blurb Photo Books – Capture the Memories! (15% Off thru April 30th)

Blurb Photo Book: Washington DC Photo Book Cover

Blurb Photo Books – Capture Your Memories with Professional Bookstore Quality Binding, Paper & Printing!

I finally finished sprucing up my house with all the my great One Kings Lane finds so I can now concentrate my efforts  on creating my next Blurb Photo Book.  I want this one to capture all the memories and amazing photographs my husband and I made when visiting his brother Andy in Washington D.C.. last Fall.

Both of us had worked at the White House many moons ago and it had been ages since we have gone back to visit so we felt like kids again – wide eyed and energized by DC's dramatic architecture, constant political banter, and great eats.

As I began pulling my favorite photos, I knew right away that Blurb was the perfect platform for this type of photo book.  Although I love Shutterfly for my everyday snapshots, I turn to Blurb when I want a more artistic, professional style product.  Blurb is perfect for professional and amateur photographers, designers, and book-lovers since they are obsessed with quality and sticklers about top-notch binding, gorgeous paper, and professional printing.

Blurb books are bookstore-quality – you'll want to share and show them off for years to come.

And best yet, Blurb is running an April special:

Blurb Photo Book: Washington Monument Photo BooK Cover

Blurb Photo Book: Washington DC Eagle Photo BooK Cover

Make a Blurb Book by April 30th and take 15% off with promo code APRIL15!

I am pretty sure I have decided on this photo of the Capital for my cover photo but would love your input,  Do you agree or prefer either this photo of an American Bald Eagle we spotted in a leafless tree as we strolled the Mall or this stylized photo of the Washington monument?

Party Hearty!
