With as many as a third of all proposals happening during December, there is potential for hundreds of people to go into the festive season with achy knees. As well as providing comfort, the leading hotel group has even taken on a lot of the leg work by picking out the most romantic locations within its grounds to pop the question. A member of staff will also be on hand to capture photography of the perfect moment.
Marco Truffelli, Managing Director for Scotland at Macdonald Hotels & Resorts, said: “We often hear from guests that, while they are delighted to ask the question, getting down on one knee can be quite uncomfortable. Especially, if he or she takes a while to respond.
“To make the experience as memorable, and pain-free, as possible we’ve placed cushions throughout our hotels in the most romantic and festive locations. And if guests don’t get the answer they are hoping for at least there’s a nice velvet cushion to soften the blow.”
There is a lot to take into consideration when planning the ideal way to ask for a loved one’s hand in marriage and creating the perfect environment is top of the list. From scenic countryside or sea views to cosy fireplaces, getting the proposal off on the right foot is the best way to start the journey to married life.
Marco Truffelli continued: “Our luxurious hotels with scenic surroundings provide the ideal backdrops for proposals and weddings, and our hard-working team will go the extra mile to ensure a magical experience for our guests.”
As well as a velvet cushion for comfort, Macdonald Hotels & Resorts’ bespoke proposal package* includes an overnight stay for two in a deluxe or super deluxe room, a decadent three course dinner, and champagne, chocolates and strawberries on arrival.
The exclusive package also offers a member of staff to capture photography of the perfect moment. With 42% of people feeling under pressure to have a Pinterest or Instagram wedding, Macdonald Hotels & Resorts is ensuring that engagements are also worthy of today’s social media world.
Macdonald Hotels & Resorts has a collection of luxurious hotels across the UK, each with its own unique charm, where couples can enjoy a romantic proposal break or choose as a wedding destination.
