The biggest shock on the day my Fiance proposed wasnt the proposal but the fact that he asked my dad first! We got engaged in Puerto Rico so he asked my dad before we left. He made up something about wanting to talk to my dad about getting a job with him so I was none the wiser. both my Fiance and dad say the conversations went like this
DH “You know me and Allie are going to Puerto Rico and while I am there I plan on asking her to marry me, and I don’t want to do that without your blessing”
My dad goes “You didn’t need to ask for my blessing you’ve always had it, I can’t picture my daughter with anyone more percect”
I just cried after i heard that i was so happy to have support on both sides
Did you Fi ask you your dad?

Darling Husband asked my Dad and my mom. He snuck out of work early to go to their office and ask them. He told them he hadnt told anyone so he would like to keep it a secret until it happened-my dad looked at my mom who was crying and said-YOU BETTER NOT RUIN THIS! that part makes me laugh.
What i think it the cutest part-is my parents have known him for year and they said they have never seen him so nervous. i think that is adorable!
i love stuff like this.

Aww that’s so sweet 🙂
Yep, Fiance asked my dad! They actually plotted the whole proposal together so it would be at dinner with all of my close family there. I couldn’t believe they kept the secret from me! But I am glad he had my dad’s approval, even though I was pretty sure he didn’t need to ask because my whole family just loves Fiance.

Such an adorable story 🙂 and yes Fiance asked my dad before… he knew it was really important to me and I knew my dad would appreciate the respect.

We got engaged in Las Vegas, and the night before we left for the trip, SO insisted on going out to the mall to get a garment bag for our dressy clothes. It took him way longer than it should have, and he hates malls, so I should have been suspicious.
It turns out that his real motive for going out that night was to swing by my parents house and ask for their blessing when he proposed a couple of days later and show them the ring.

My Darling Husband asked my dad while we were there for xmas one year! He showed him the ring and everything.

I told him in no uncertain terms that if he asked my dad that I would say “no”. I said if he had to ask anyone he should ask my Grandma (who gave me her ring) but really he should just ask me.

Wow, surprising how many bees have said “yes” to this! Glad to see this tradition is alive and well. Very sweet.

Nope. Didn’t even cross either of our minds. Why would I need my dad’s permission/blessing? He doesn’t own me. I’m a big girl, I can make my own decision regardless of what my dad thinks.

We aren’t engaged yet but he said that when the time comes he doesn’t want to do it without talking to my mom and dad first (:

I don’t have a father to ask, but he also didn’t “consult” anyone in my family. We talked about marriage together, and I actually proposed to him. After we got engaged, we told both of our families and made sure they were accepting and happy about it before we went public. It’s not that if either had been upset/said no we would have listened, but we definitely wanted everyone to be happy and understand why we were getting engaged.

No and I would have been upset if he had. We had discussed before but it went something like this . . .
Me – “you know if I ever found out you did that I would just say no”
Fiance – “yeah why would I do that”

We custom made my engagement ring from two of my grandmother’s ring, so we all (FI, me, and my parents) were aware than an “offical” engagement was coming. My Fiance didn’t ask for permission or ask my dad for my hand, but he did call them the morning he proposed to tell then he was going to ask.
