Okay, so it’s been a while since my last idea, and especially considering my good friend, Meredith, brought this one to my attention weeks ago, this post is long overdue!
Like many others, I am addicted to the Olympics right now… can’t get enough. Working at home, editing most days away, allows me to watch more than my fair share of NBC’s unfortunate coverage. (Tho, on a sidenote, as much as the tape delays bug me, it does allow me to watch events I otherwise might not I suppose)…
Europe is a great place to visit, just pick a country and go. Having just been there for the first time, including London, I am already planning my next trip. It is definitely a destination for many a romantic vacation, and plenty of honeymoons.
Well, this idea that my pal from college saw on the National Geographic channel, I think is just flat out awesome. At Dromoland Castle Hotel (previously just a castle- now turned into a Luzury 5 Star hotel), you ca hire a trained Falcon to fly down with the engagement ring on cue, as you pop the question.
Here is a link to the website for the hotel. http://www.dromoland.ie/
If you google it as well, there are quite a few stories, and even video uploads related to it. So while you won’t be the first person to ever do this spectacular stunt during a wedding proposal worldwide, you will most certainly be the first one to do it in your circle of friends/family.
I can only imagine the look on your girlfriend’s face as she sees a large Falcon flying down at her with her ring. Pretty cool right?
I tell you what. If anyone reads about this here, and goes ahead and does it… Let me know and I’ll give you a 30% discount on any package offer! I just need a photo of the bird in action with the ring!
Now go ahead and get down on Bended Knee. 😉
ps- Thanks for the idea Mer!
