Hot Air Balloon Wedding Proposals (and why it's not always a good idea)

Hot Air Balloon Wedding Proposals

As spectacular and romantic as you think it may be to propose to your loved one on a hot air balloon, think again - it could end up being an absolute disaster.

One very excited groom (or so he thought he would be) decided to ask his girlfriend of 2 years to marry him whilst on a 2 hour hot air ballooning experience. Everything seemed to go well at first - it was perfect weather, perfect scenery and a potentially perfect person he would be spending the rest of his life with.

So once there was lift off, he got down on one knee and did the whole will-you-marry-me thing. The other 6 passengers on board were ready to explode with joy as they watched and waited for the young girl to say yes.

Only she never said it. In fact, she said "No, I'll talk to you about it later" and then stood at one corner of the balloon basket silent for the remaining 1 hour and 54 minute balloon ride.

Similarly, the groom (I really shouldn't call him that, should I?) was so humiliated and felt so rejected that he stood at the opposit corner, silent and in tears.

And what about all the other passengers, you ask? Apparently, it was the worst hot air balloon experience ever and a few of them even demanded their money back.


Of course, this is probably a one in a million occurence and I'm sure that it rarely happens. Even so, now potential grooms (and brides) who wish to propose are asked by hot air ballooning companies whether they are sure the response to their proposal will be a 'yes' and if not, they are only permitted to propose once the balloon starts to decend so that people don't have to sit through any feelings of humiliation, rejection and awkwardness for the whole 2 hour ride!

STBLM,

Yep,

I think some people carry romanticism a bit far ... I mean I didn't have any problems getting down on my knees to propose ... but I'm not sure my wife heard my proposal ... funny about that ... I guess what's beneath women's underpants don't have ears? ...

Na, just joking ...

Me? Pretty casual ... Just proposed over a beer ... Knocked me back (not the beer ... never been knocked back by a beer in my life ... only over ... ? ....

Just said, 'So, do you want to get married?' Nup. She wan't interested ... Bloody women and these 'play hard to get games'. Me? wasn't asking again ... Nup means nup ... So she proposes to me ... Power freaks ... control freaks modern women ... Love em ... Glad I'm single now though ...

As to hot air balloons? What comes out of my mouth? ...I could blow up a Goodyear Blimp or two ...

Na, just calling in to wish you all the best ...

Cheers ...

David ...
