Having strangers shower your girlfriend with flowers as she walks down the street seems to be the proposal trend du jour (sorry, Bruno Mars).
News.com in Australia reports that yes, yet another man has proposed to his girlfriend with the help of a group of strangers who agreed to hand her a seemingly-endless stream of flowers as she exited the Sydney airport.
The basic premise of the trend is this: Partner A stages an elaborate scheme wherein strangers hand flower after flower to Partner B as she makes her way to a destination. Upon arrival, Partner B finds Partner A on bended knee, engagement ring in hand. A marriage proposal ensues.
The "strangers with flowers" proposal was popularized by Jack from Boston, who proposed to his girlfriend, Teresa, as they walked to an after-work concert earlier this month. Then, just last week, a different man took his girlfriend to a restaurant where a deluge of flowers rained down on his beloved.
Whether in the form of a flash mob or strangers with flowers, public marriage proposals are gaining more and more steam -- but will a digitally preserved public proposal become dated as the trend fades? What do you think? Tell us in the comments!
