Marriage, once all about love, commitment and shared interests, is now all about spending up big:
From romantic dinners to flash mobs, underwater and mid-air helicopter proposals, a wave of new Perth proposal planners can organise it all.
Fly-in, fly-out worker Justin Ponting, 22, used Romantic Gestures to propose to his partner Tonya Gastev, 23.
He splashed out $5000 for a package that included a flash mob of 20 dancers, videographer, photographer, a big “Will you marry me?” banner, champagne and flowers.
Marrying a man who spends money so irresponsibly is a mistake.
