I really like your plan, I think that’s awesome.  The only thing I can think if you want more privacy would be to propose maybe right before you sit down to dinner, is there an outside patio or anything you could take her to? Or maybe propose in the kitchen (possibly less people) before moving out to the dining room to eat.

I love your proposal idea and I think it sounds super fun…I want to be a chef for a day too! On to your question, I think the more private dining area sounds private enough.

The kitchen would be good too like what the PP said about proposing before moving out to the dining area. If you want pictures of your proposal, you could ask the chef/assistant to take a picture of you and your girlfriend with the dishes you have prepared as an excuse. When he has the camera ready, you can propose then. There will still be people there…but maybe not as many people? Haha..

All the best! πŸ™‚

That is a wonderful idea! Maybe you could propose over the wine? If you get to taste some? sounds like it may be one of the times when it is more secluded, or at the table, sounds like an excellent setting.

About the hidden photographer. It’s a special moment between the two of you, for the two of you to remember and share. I’d personaly respect her wishes.

I LOVE this idea! If you think she is really against anything in public, why don’t you play it by ear? If you feel the private room is private enough, go for it. If not, when you take her home, have a bottle of champagne waiting in the fridge, toast a wonderful evening, and put a ring on it! πŸ™‚

Could you go to the restaurant to see it first? then you will feel more comfortable knowing the setting. You could have a hidden photographer and go out onto a patio or for a walk around the building (if it is a nice setting) with your wine.. you can have the chef cue you that you have a few minutes of break to enjoy your wine where you please. You can suggest a walk and already have checked out the grounds and tell the chef/whoever you want to take the picture to hide around there somewhere πŸ™‚ good luck! please update us!

I would go for a walk after dinner at the end of the night and do it then. Good luck!

Can you ask to package up the dessert to go? You could get one of the employees to put the ring on top when they package it, then open it up at home.

Love the idea.. Id check out the more private table and see what it looks like.. Also, when my fiancé proposed, he grabbed his camera and put it on the timer to take our photo..when the photo snapped, he got down on one knee..so we have the picture and I’m so glad we do..the proposal was very private too. 

Maybe, if you decide to do it in the kitchen, you ask somebody to take a picture of you two in your monogrammed aprons (or set the timer like my fiance did) – and at that point get on your knee.. It will still be private and you wouldn’t have an entourage of photographers there..

This is a little cheesy, but I’m a cheesy person and maybe you’re a cheesy couple…? Can you get the monogrammed chef outfits in advance, give it to her at home before leaving, and have them say “Bride” and “Groom” or “Mr.” and “Mrs.” with your last name? I see nothing wrong with asking at the beginning of the night… then she has all evening to show off her ring (and her man!).

I’m a little late here – but you said that the chef gives you a gift at the end.  Maybe you can find out how the restaurant wraps the gift from the chef, and wrap the ring the same way.  I know you probably don’t want to hand off the ring to the chef and have him give it to you with the other gift, but maybe ask the chef to put his gift in a bag, and you can slip the wrapped ring in with the other gift.  Then, you can open it when you get home, and she will be shocked because she expected both gifts to be from the chef!

@metalbride:  This.  Then she won’t be anticipating the proposal; unless you act weird. LOL
