One thing that we can all agree on is that people love a show. Dancing and music have a way of helping us to forget our troubles and enjoy ourselves – this is probably why people love Flash Mobs so much. They’re fun, surprising, spontaneous and very entertaining.
So, if you’re looking to plan a proposal with a little oomph, or to put on a show for your partner, then perhaps a flash mob proposal is what you’re looking for.
Before you break out into song and dance though, you’ll need two things;
- The Right Engagement Ring: Notice how we said “right” and not “perfect”? This is because there is no such thing as one perfect engagement ring, but rather one that will be right for your partner. Even though there are no perfect rings, those in the range at Valentina Engagement Rings do come pretty close!
- A Good Plan: Executing an amazing Flash Mob proposal takes time and planning. Not sure where to start? Well, keep reading for everything you need to know to plan the perfect flash mod proposal.
Step 1: Location, Location, Location
First, you need to decide where you want to do your flash mob. You’ll need to do it in a public place to avoid suspicion, but if you do it in a place that’s too public, you run the risk of unwanted interruptions.
Wherever you choose, make sure that you notify someone at the venue or location if you can. Few things can ruin a mood like security running around during your proposal.
Protip: Make sure that your outfit matches the location that you’re going to. If you plan to do it in a shopping centre and you tell your partner that you’re going to lunch, don’t rock up in a tux.
Step 2: Pick your Song
Whilst you may be tempted to choose the song that may be topping the charts currently, this song may feel dated when you look at your proposal in a few years. Instead, try to choose a song that is meaningful to you both. This makes the proposal both romantic and personal.
Step 3: Choose your People
When it comes to a secret, the more people that know about it, the harder it is to keep. This is why it can be challenging to ask all your friends and family to help – they might give the game away accidentally. Plus, as you make your way to the location, your partner may accidentally spot a friendly face.
If you have the money or contacts, we recommend getting help from real dancers. This way they help you to better choreograph the performance and make it look as good as possible!
As part of your crew, you’ll also need someone who is in charge of music and someone to video the whole thing.
Step 4: Learn the Moves
With the help of your choreographer, you’ll be able to organise and plan your routine. We recommend doing a few rehearsals as well. Make sure that you have a clear signal to notify everyone when the performance is about to begin.
Step 5: Have a Backup
What if it rains? What if you get interrupted? What if the music never starts? There are plenty of things that could go wrong with a flashmob, so it’s important to have a backup plan just in case.
