We’ve had a lot of proposals lately (yeah!) and it really struck me how many people mentioned the getting down on one knee thing. pre-engagement, I would have said it didn’t matter to me if he got down on one knee or not. But when he proposed, he did, and I LOVED it!!!
Did you FI get down on one knee? Was this something that was a definite thing you wanted?

Yes, he did get down on one knee to propose (or maybe two, I don’t remember, lol). I almost cried! It was so sweet. 🙂

only when I asked him to ask me properly.
Was more of a discussion then a proposal.

Nope. We were at a beautiful restaraunt that we visited just before I left when I visited him initially. He took my hand and opened the ring box and asked me to marry him.
It was lovely.

That’s all he did! He never said a word. We still joke to this day that he never actually asked me to marry him.

You betcha! I loved it… it was such a sincere, romantic, classic gesture. I mean, the love of your life, down on one knee, asking for your hand? *swoon*
Even my pretty stoic mother ooohed and awwwed when I told her.

Yep, he did. If he hadn’t I probably would have told him to. It’s cute!

It didn’t matter to much to me whether or not he did. But when he did, I loved it!!! I’m smiling ear to ear now thinking about it. He didn’t have any kind of speech or anyhting though. Just “hey look at this” and when I looked he was on one knee and asked me. **SMILESSSSS**

Nope… Lol, I like to stay I got the ultimate “Non-Proposal”… he just sort of said we should get married in passing (and he was totally serious)

Yes, he did. 🙂 It was so romantic.

He did. It kind of suprised me but, since planning I have seen much he is about things he considers traditional. Also we got engaged in our apartment with just us so he didn’t do it in front of everyone.
My brother didn’t get down on one knee with SIL, but they were on the beach and already sitting so it would have been awkward. Plus, there were several people he knew around on the beach that evening.

He kind of squatted on one knee. I will sitting on a rock (we were on a hike) so I was maybe a foot off the ground, so he had to really squat down to be at the same level as me… it was very cute!
