The Best Proposal winner received $1,000 towards wedding bands and wedding jewelry, and the Worst Proposal winner received $500, also towards wedding jewelry. The winning stories can be found on the Mervis Facebook page.
"It was amazing how elaborate all of the proposals were," says Hailey Robbins, Manager of Marketing, Media, and Special Events at Mervis. "Especially our winner. He designed an entire scavenger hunt for his bride-to-be, made a fake website, and even hired people to pretend to be 'in' the scavenger hunt. Absolutely amazing." In Robbins' experience, more and more proposals are trending towards the elaborate. "The nice dinner and saying something sweet doesn't quite cut it, now," she says.
