What is an engagement? To some women, it entails a whole courtyard of blooming flowers, a string quartet playing Canon in D, and a man on one knee drawing a velvet-wrapped box from his waistcoat, and with a flourish, presenting a diamond encrusted band with those immortal 4 words – “Will you marry me?” For some men, its about thrusting a band of metal (painfully obtained) with a rock glued to it under their partner’s nose, and uttering another 4 immortal words – “You want or not?”
“You want or not?” – romantic or not!?
Whichever way it plays out, the engagement ceremony will probably live on forever in the minds of the married couple, and related during many many occasions throughout their lives together. Friends, family, children, grandchildren (and their pets) will all hear about how grandpa whipped out the biggest diamond this side of KL, and reduced grandma to tears of joy, umpteenth years ago.
Seeing as to how memorable your engagement can be, why not commemorate it in style? This year, Mandarin Oriental and Signature Weddings, together with a host of industry players, are giving one special couple the chance to immortalize their engagement ceremony by making it a night of magic!
