Marilyn Oliveira, senior editor at the website weddingchannel.com, admits, I think theres some truth to that, citing Al Reynolds proposal to Star Jones on national TV; and Paris Hiltons super-sized ring as other examples to live up to.
Not only that, she feels theres more pressure for average guys because, They know that the proposal is going to be talked about 40 years from now.
Oliveira says men are now turning to high-end hotels for help in creating a memorable proposal. For example, a resort in Kauai placed an engagement ring at the bottom of a swimming pool and allowed the future groom to dive off a bridge and retrieve the ring for his bride-to-be.
While impressive, Oliveira says its more important to know your bride and to do something thats meaningful and special for you both.
