We don't have any doubt that the marriage between—this hurts to say—KimYe will survive. (Well, maybe a little.) But in case Kanye ever needs to top his last proposal in utter over-the-topness, he may want to head back to Chicago to do it.
Just launched at the Signature Room, the "Sky is the Limit" engagement package includes the following: an appointment with a personal shopper (to select an outfit for the proposer) and a meeting with a jeweler. At the restaurant, the couple heads to a private dining room with custom, flower-filled decor (think the propos-ee will expect anything is up?) There's a custom prix-fixe meal with wine pairings; a string ensemble is, obviously, on hand. For the big shebang, a plane writes the proposal in the sky, and—assuming all goes well—the couple is whisked off to Lake Geneva via helicopter for a weekend stay.
Costs for the package start at $20,000. (There's also another engagement package that starts at $3,500, if your limit is very expensive and not outrageously.)
Will anyone take the Signature Room up on this? We assume most people would be okay with a surprise ring, cocktails, and the Signature Room view, but hey. Sky-writing does make for a good story.
