Opinion: Whose story ‘rings’ truest?
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it stuck us that there are true, over-the-top romantics in our midst. By that, we mean gents that do more than the old get-down-on-one-knee deal to beg/propose. (We do that simply to get the TV remotes from our spouses, by the way.) Some guys really go all out, expand the boundaries of creativity and really stretch to propose to what they hope will be their bride-to-be. And so in recognition of those that really know how to push the envelope in this category, we’ve created The Most Romantic Marriage Proposal contest. Every couple has a unique story, as no two are alike, but we (and our readers) want to know what over-the-moon proposal you offered or, in the case of a bride, was presented to you. The grand-prize winner, as determined by online voting Jan. 27 through Feb. 1 at www.youarecurrent.com, will be awarded a John Hardy limited edition, pink-sapphire bracelet, courtesy of Moyer Fine Jewelers. The first runner-up will have dinner for two on the house at Prime 47-Carmel, and the second runner-up will win a $100 gift card from Kroger of Carmel to use on flowers, chocolates or, perhaps, ingredients for a romantic, home-cooked meal. (Thank you, sincerely, sponsors!) All submissions will be posted, and then we’ll let our readers decide who wins what. Send your story to our editorial director, Sophie Pappas, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The winners and their respective entries will be announced and published in the Feb. 9 edition of Current. We’re eagerly anticipating the submissions to see who really has the corner on creativity.
