Can't I find the same ideas on the Internet? Why hire you?

No, our proposal and romance services are created just for you at the moment you hire us and are customized to your relationship. We work WITH you to create a proposal or date that is truly personalized and filled with memories, inside jokes, and special moments. We don’t re-use ideas or pull from a database of existing ideas.

What cities can you plan proposals and dates in?

We operate worldwide.  Check out our gallery and blog to see examples of our planning around the globe.

Are you LGBT friendly?

Of course we are! We work with anyone that is interested in making their significant other’s day as special as possible. We do not discriminate. We are also proud supporters of the Freedom To Marry initiative.

Do you help women that want to propose to men?

Yes, absolutely. Again, we do not discriminate. We help anybody that wants to make their day as special as possible.

How important is a marriage proposal?

The first question she will be asked when she announces your engagement is, “How did he propose?” It is the story she will tell time and time again to her friends, family, children, and grandchildren. Hiring a Proposal Consultant gives you the opportunity to put together a proposal she will be proud to tell over and over. Did you know that in a recent survey 80% of women said they were unsatisfied with their marriage proposal? Don’t let this happen to you!

Will my partner be mad I hired a Planner?

When you hire a Proposal Coordinator or Date Planner, you are still a part of the process. We work WITH you to help you come up with unique and personalized proposal and date ideas. If that doesn’t convince you, here are quotes from our clients’ fiancés:

“THANK YOU ALL so much for your contribution to this special moment in Rod and my life. That was a day that most people dream of… To find your true love and lifetime companion is a blessing in itself but with your help, my dream became a reality. Thanks again and until we meet again, be well.”

“Everything went so perfectly, I could not have asked for anything better. [Michele] made this experience not only less stressful for my fiancé, but truly memorable for me and I am so proud to tell the story to all my friends and family. I would recommend her to anyone for any special event they may be planning.”

“Thank you so much!! It would not have been able to happen like this without you so thank you very much for everything you did to help Bill! It was amazing!”

If you would like to keep our services confidential, we offer 100% discretion.

How do I know my partner will like the event you help me plan?

We have you complete a detailed questionnaire to help us get to know your partner and your relationship. Collectively, we work diligently to put a plan together that you feel confident will please your partner. Other companies may issue you a couple of proposal ideas and walk away but we work with you until you are completely satisfied with the details of the event. Although we cannot guarantee your partner’s reaction, we are confident in our approach to planning the perfect event.

Are your ideas simple or lavish?

Both. We can offer lavish events involving private jets to something as simple as a wine and cheese picnic in your backyard. Whatever you want, we make it happen.

I have a general idea of how I want to propose. Can you still help?

Of course! Let The Heart Bandits, Proposal Planners, assist you in making your vision come true. We can help you finalize your idea or leave it as is and just bring the concept to life.  You may not know exactly how to turn your dream proposal into reality…we do.
