Risky Wedding Proposals are Memorable but Could Result in Potential Criminal Charges, says Wedding.com

Newport Beach, CA, Jan 31, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- From flash mobs to marching bands to jumbo screens, the recent trend in marriage proposals has been all about being over-the-top and outrageous. Although there is nothing wrong with the personalization of such a major life event, Wedding.com warns against any surprises that may pose a safety risk to others as well as unnecessary legal issues ahead that may affect the wedding planning.

Many trendy proposals occur within safe areas: outside of Disneyland shops or on school campuses, but some actually garner unwanted attention from local authorities. According to a Southern California news report by NBC, hundreds of motorcyclists stopped traffic on a major freeway this past Sunday in order for a fellow cyclist to propose to his girlfriend from within a large cloud of pink smoke (http://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/More-Than-300-Motorcycles-Shut-Down-Freeway-Marriage-Proposal-188930531.html). Video of the proposal was posted on YouTube and has since gained the attention of the California Highway Patrol (CHP). Involved motorcyclists may eventually be charged with misdemeanors or even felonies for things such as reckless driving and making non-emergency stops.

"The marriage proposal literally stopped traffic. The intention behind it was obviously a positive one, and luckily, no accidents occurred as a result," says Brett Reynolds, CEO of Wedding.com. "If anyone else out there is planning an elaborate proposal like this, it is probably a good idea to think twice, especially when the safety of others is a concern and the police will likely get involved."
