Not that we're materialistic or anything (perish the thought!), but we all know that a big ol' diamond ring—presented by the love of your life, of course—is a great way to pretty much guarantee a resounding "yes!" during a proposal. But what if it's a lovely lady proposing to her man, bucking tradition in the process? What does she gift for a proposal that he can't resist? Well, we hate to be gender normative, but we think that this brilliant bride's Doritos bouquet is a pretty good way to go. Yes, bouquets fashioned out of your fave college snack food officially exist and this Canadian bride-to-be just used the craveably crunchy, edible roses to pop the question to her beau!
"A woman proposing to a man—you never know what to do, right?" mused bride-to-be Amanda Mussio. "You can't get them a big, blingy ring. And you want it to be a little bit different anyway, since you're not following the traditional method of proposal." Her solution? A popped-question present that we're prettyyy sure has never been done before! According to NHL.com, on Thursday, March 16 Mussio planned to propose to her boyfriend, Brandon Haubrich, at a Vancouver Canucks hockey game. There, Haubrich was oh-so-randomly selected from the crowd of fans to participate in the "Canucks Puck Shuffle" halftime game to possibly win a mystery prize.
When Haubrich played the game, shown on the stadium's jumbotron, he naturally scored the big win—and a fiancé! The words "Will you marry me?" appeared on-screen; Mussio popped up behind Haubrich with a bundle of edible, ketchup-flavored roses fashioned out of Doritos; and she dropped to one knee.
Haubrich of course said yes and kissed his new bride-to-be as the crowd erupted into cheers. "I had no idea," he later said of the epic moment. "I was very shocked and surprised. I'm still taking the time to catch my breath."
Might we suggest chowing down on that yummy bouquet if you're feeling a little light-headed?
