- Wedding: January 2018
Alirght first of all i have been Engaged for 3 years but in that 3 years lots has changed and if i want to be honest we have hit a pretty rocky road the last year and half and so far we have not found our footing again but that is not why i am posting…..
Alright our Proposal was nice and i guess romantic but i HATED every moment of it (No he does not know i did not like his Proposal) The only thing at the time i loved was the ring but now i can’t stand the ring (Water gets caught under the band and i keep getting skin irritations so i find it hard to wear most of the time)
Alright belive me the proposal is not that bad it’s acturally quite nice and sweet but it’s not what i wanted so here it is
Alright he decided to Propose on my 19th Birthday and belive me NOTHING that day went to plan….
His first plan was to go swim with the dolphine’s at sunrise at some bay/beach in Sydney (Australia) the two issues was 1) I refused to go swimming in the ocean in the middle of winter at sunrise as i was SICK and did not need to get into freezing water that early in the morning to get more sick and 2) The company doing the swim said that they had not seen dolphines in the area for around 4 days so the experince has to be cancelled which in turned messed with him proposing at sunrise with the dolphine’s which would have been romantic and more personalized. (No i did not know he was going to propose that way)
Well the rest of our day played out with me being in bed sleeping as i said i was SOOOOOOOO sick with a cold i had sores under my nose, i kept sneezing and coughing and just felt yuck
Well around the middle of the afternoon rollled around he came and woke me up and told me i had to get ready to go out for dinner but because i did not feel well i tried talking him into skipping the dinner reservation but he was acting strange and kept pushing me to get ready and go and kept telling me it was worth it relunctly i got out of bed and got ready….
Well we ended up taking a train for about an hour into the city where he was acting funny and strange and was pretty quite i knew he had some jewellery for me as a present so i ended up mucking around and he just acted really weird but i still had no idea what was going on
Well we ended up at the Harbour where there was dinner cruise once we got on we started taking pictures and just talking and he kept trying to press me to go to the front of the boat but i wanted to at least eat my 1st course in this time he drank 3 glasses of wine and finally he grabbed my hand and walked me to the front of the boat sadly the blocked off most of the front of the boat for safty reason’s so we ended standing pretty much in the middle of the deck so we started taking photo’s…… Well i noticed a group of girl’s trying to take a photo as a group so i stepped in and offered to take a photo for them and my partners response was if we take a photo of you, you have to a take a photo of us which they agreeded to. When i was done taking a photo of them i handed the camera back and turned my back to look at the view well my partner set up our camera…… All of a sudden i head is it meant to be recording?? from the lady with our camera….He said yes
Well i ended up turning around with him handing my a jewellery box (Because i dislike suprise i thought i knew what was inside so i did not open it at first) Well he ended up telling me to open it and when i did it was a heart locket so i thought oh my birthday gift sweet…. Well he then said turn it over and on the back it said “Will you Marry Me Love D**** i read it twice before it sunk it and i ended up looking up to see him on one knee playing celine dion My heart will go on through his phone……. he gave a speech but i can’t remember what he said and the video does not help as it was really windy on the boat so you cant hear anything….
To be honest my first instict was to say no and walk away and come back and say yes only because i love you (more of a joke then being mean) But i just ended up smiling and akwardly laughing and said yes…. There was no tears there was a kiss and a hug but not anything out of the normal
Once we went back inside the ship he decided to make a speech to a boat load of stranger that he proposed and i said yes and then he went on to ask the whole boat to sing me happy birthday at the same time…… I was so embarressed !! I would have not cared if it was friends and family but it was complete strangers who i would never see again
So guess if i have to lay it out way i hated the engagment was
A) I NEVER wanted to get Engaged ony Christmas, New Years, Valentines day, His Birthday, My Birthday or any other holiday or event other then our Annivasry and he was well aware that if we got engaged i did not want it to happen on any of those days as it is to Cliche.
B) I found the boat and the sunset just as Cliche i wanted somthing that reflected us and neither one of us are boat people or even beach people (the only time you see us at the beach is a couple of times a year in the summer when its hot but nothing more)
C) I found it unromantic for me…. I wanted to have flowers , friends and family asking the permission for my hand in marriage and got none of that
D) I found it so embarrasing a boat load of people found out we where engaged before any of my friends or family (No phone reception on the boat)
E) I looked SOOOOOOOO Bad because of being sick NO amount of make up could hide the sores under my nose, My eyes where puffy and my nails looked shocking as i had taken all my fake nails off so they look awful so when i look at the photo’s all i can see is how bad i look….. And i HAD WAY TO MUCH hairspray in my hair so one part of my hair looks wet well the rest of my hair looks dry SOOOO WEIRD!
Like i said its a sweet and nice and there is A LOT of girl’s who would have loved this proposal but i wanted somthing more meaningful to us as a couple and somthing more romantic and that included our friends and family or at least for them to be close by (We lived in Sydney and my friends and family lived in another state and his family lived between 2 and 7 hours away so there was no one to celerbate with)
I guess call me crazy and spoiled but did you guess get the engagment the expected?? Did you cry??? I want to hear what you guys think of his proposal
