I was talking to an engaged friend, who is dealing with an unengaged friend that said her proposal was all wrong because it wasn’t A, B, and C, and that got me thinking that probably a lot of women who get their A, B, and C get them because they specifically asked for them. But maybe that’s just me, so I thought I’d find out!
I specifically asked that he would get down on one knee and propose with a ring in a velvet box. When it became clear that I am very picky about engagement rings, we decided that the ring could be a stand-in, something whimsical. When the time came he did all I asked and a million other wonderful things that were fantastic surprises, I wouldn’t change a thing!

Love this post! I told my fiancé some minor details and I’m SO happy I did

I told him he had to ask my parents and have the proposal photographed, both of which he was already planning

No, and I am happy I didn’t. The proposal is one thing the man gets to plan all on his own.

Mine was a surprise but I wouldn’t want any part in planning it. Kind of ruins the idea for me, personally.

The only thing I made clear was that I really didn’t want a public proposal. Other than that, it was completely up to him.

I didn’t have anything to do with the way in which he proposed. By his request, I gave him a few pictures of rings that I liked and he chose what he wanted to get. I voted “Yes, and I’m happy I did”… The only input I gave on the proposal was that I would really love it if he could get pictures of it, which he did! He later admitted he never would have thought of that himself, so I’m really happy I made that known.

I had alway said that I wanted something private and at home and in the morning, since we did long distance for 3 years before we moved in together, and that sort of intimacy seemed so perfect to me. He proposed at home in bed in the morning, and it was perfect. I think I would have been equally happy if he decided to do something else, though.

FI asked me if there was anything I hoped for out of the proposal. I told him as long as he did more than just chuck the ring at me while saying “Here,” it would be great. Then he told me not to be stupid and tell him something for real, haha. I said I really liked the idea of him getting down on one knee, and for him to formally ask “will you marry me?”
After he did his own, unique way of asking (and got over his nerves), he got down on one knee, formally asked, and put the ring on my finger. It was perfect 🙂

I only asked that it not be in public, so he did it at home and it was perfect.
I told him that I would say no if he did it at a sports game on a jumbotron! (Not that he would EVER do this, but I would die if he did!)

I picked the ring, other than that he planned everything and it was amazing. He took me on a hike and we had a picnik on a bench near a river where his mom once took our picture(without our knowledge). He got down on one knee and was all cute haha. I was shocked.

I only asked that he not do anything super public. I mentioned stuff that was cool (like we saw a picture on Pinterest of a guy proposing to his girlfriend in the snow), but I wasn’t like, “You MUST do x!”
Actually, he wanted to take me ice skating a hire a photographer to capture the moment, but he picked up the ring and immediately freaked out and had to propose that day lol.

I picked out the ring….I’ll let him handle the proposal. I only asked that he make sure my nails were done before he asked haha

I asked him not to do it in public – I just didn’t want a commotion and a bunch of people staring. Guess what? He did it in the middle of a restaurant, hah! Everyone around us watched and sent bottles of champagne to our table. He did not listen to me at all, but it was still perfect 🙂
