WestJet Valentine's Day - Will You Marry Me? #WestJetLove

It's the season of love, with hearts and chocolate and everything pink and red all over. Valentine's Day may feel over done and unnecessary for some of us, or downright depressing for others. In our family it's mostly about the kids, who have always gotten a heart-shaped box of chocolates. And of course the post-Valentine's chocolate clearance sales. MMMMM.

But for many people it's the perfect time to shout their love from the rooftops, treat their sweetheart like a king or queen, or even the perfect time to pop that all important question, "Will you marry me?" (I wonder how many engagement rings are sold in the first two weeks of February?)

WestJet is known for their focus on customer experience, and they have a history of fun promotions around holiday time. This year they've done something super special for two couples, in celebration of this season of love. Back in November, they sent a scout to a Michael Hill jewellery store in Newmarket, ON.  Hidden cameras watched for men shopping the engagement rings, and two lucky guys were approached with an amazing offer.

J.P. and Mike were offered the opportunity to propose to their girlfriends, Stephanie and Heather, in beautiful Barbados. The ladies would be told they were auditioning for a spot in a WestJet commercial (gotta explain the cameras, right?) so they would be none the wiser. Gorgeous vacation, proposal story to last a lifetime. I'm honestly not sure how anyone could say no to that! But there was a catch.

"The one condition for J.P. and Mike is that WestJet, not they, would decide when and where they would actually pop the question," said Corey Evans. "The result was an experience the two couples will remember for the rest of their lives, and a funny, heartwarming Valentine's Day story to share with Canadians."

Can you imagine how tense the guys must have been? I'm sure it was still all worth it. Here's how it all went down!

Whether you're looking for a locale to present the ultimate proposal, or just ready to escape the bitter Canadian cold, WestJet has a special Valentine's Day Barbados seat sale for you! Book by February 14, 2015, and travel by June 24, 2015, with fares starting from:

Now that would be an amazing Valentine's gift!

So, what's your story? If you are married, do you have a special, romantic proposal story to share? For the record, mine is pretty tame and the proposal was kind of spur of the moment. But I'm ok with that. I even got to pick out my own ring!!
