Frequently Asked Questions

We have put together a list of our most frequently asked questions below.

  • How much time do we need to organise my proposal?

    We ask that you give us around 4 weeks notice from the date of your intended marriage proposal! This allows us the time to find out what you'd really love to include; then research, book and put together all the elements of your romantic surprise so that everything is perfect on the day!

  • What does a proposal planner do?

    A proposal planner saves you stress, time and money by helping you refine your proposal idea, provide recommendations when you’re not sure what is available or researches the elements you want included. We then coordinate all the moving parts of your perfect proposal by sourcing suppliers, discreetly coordinating bookings and payments, and wrapping it all together in your own personalised itinerary.

  • Ok, but why should I choose The Proposal Planners?

    The Proposal Planners are your local event professionals who will coordinate the moving parts of your romantic event and give you the freedom to get creative without the stress. We’ve done the research and can offer you many unique ideas and interesting experiences currently available in New Zealand.

    We pride ourselves in our work, and always go above and beyond to ensure you and your partner have that picture-perfect experience.

  • What do I get in a proposal package?

    Services vary from package to package; however it generally includes your own dedicated proposal planner, a special experience such as a cruise/flight/weekend away etc, catering, bubbles, a bouquet of flowers and a personalised itinerary that gives you all the information you will need for everything to go smoothly! We also give you the option to add on special extras e.g. photography or videography so you and your partner can look back on your life-changing moment!

  • How does using a proposal planner save me money?

    We have already done the hard work and negotiated great prices with even greater experience providers, event stylists, florists and photographers so that you don’t have to!

  • Where in New Zealand do you assist with proposals?

    Virtually everywhere! We have wonderful suppliers in almost every region of New Zealand and we are adding new packages all the time!

  • It looks like you help a lot of people from overseas, what about the locals?

    All the time! We love helping our fellow kiwis with their proposal plans just as much as visitors to the wonderful land of Aotearoa.

  • I already know what I want to do, can you just help me put it together?

    Absolutely! Head to our Custom-made Proposals page for more information!

  • I don’t want my partner to find out before the day, how do you make sure this doesn’t happen?

    Our team are very discreet and ensure that we only contact you via the method you nominate. We will only ever refer to ourselves as “Propplan” so as not to raise any suspicion! We charge one fee for the full package then arrange all ongoing payments and coordination with suppliers on your behalf. Finally, unless there is an emergency or you need to get in touch with us (e.g. running late), it will be total radio silence from us on the day!

  • Will my partner be mad if they found out I used a planner?

    Every couple who has used our services has been ecstatic with how their day turned out and we are confident you and your partner will feel just the same. This is because YOU are part of the planning every step of the way and you make the big decisions about how the moment will look – we simply give you all the tools to make the moment as special as possible!

    Our team are proud supporters of the LGBT community and never discriminate!
