I remember the rain, how he almost fell over because he knelt on a slick part of the sidewalk, seeing the ring glint in the light from the streetlamps, and him holding me so close after he asked me The Question…but everything gets fuzzy after that.
I know I got tears in my eyes and felt like I was flying, but I can’t remember one single word he said as he expounded upon his love for me and how much he wanted to spend every day of the rest of his life with me. What?! Why?! I wish I remembered, because I know it was beautiful and heartfelt and filled with so much emotion.
Has anyone else had this problem? Do you remember exactly what your FI said when he popped the question?

I do not think I am ever aloud to forget. It was not as romantic as yours sounds but it was sweet. he proposed in the car while driving to the movies I remember thinking that he was joking and askinghim over and over again for 5 minutes. i once asked if it was a 10 sent one from a candy machine. Poor man. It was cute thos because he was so nervous and shaking and he had just got the ring back from being sized. He talked about what it would mean to him and how much he loved me. Reached in his pocket, i thought he was getting gum, and he asked me " how a bout now?" I laughed at that. No way was I going to answer to that. he asked again though. Aww… it makes me want to cry a little now. anyways, i asked him before to not show me the ring when he asked and he didn’t, but it is the cutest. Sorry. i love that story.
You could ask him to recll that day and what it meant to him. LOL although that does not always work.
sorry i went on and on

I remember that we were laying in my bed on Christmas morning and it was white outside (my first white Christmas). He had just woken me up so I was still groggy. I think it went something like this:
FI: "So I asked the rest of your parents."
Me: "About what?"
(This is the fuzzy part, not sure exactly what he said, something to this effect) FI: "I would love the spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?
That is what I remember, not sure if it’s exactly right because like I said, it was early in the morning and he had just woken me up. He said he was going to drag me out into the snow, but knew I don’t like being cold, so we were cuddled up and warm.

Barely! He had worked on it for quite a while, so I made him write it down for me afterwards. 🙂

I don’t remember his exact "speech"…and i wouldn’t really call it a speech either because he was so nervous that he was fumbling for words. We were on a dinner cruise around San Diego harbor and he took me out to walk around the deck of the boat while most everyone was inside eating or dancing, then he said something along the lines of "We’ve been together a long time. And you know how much I love you" then he got down on one knee and proposed. It was so cute just because of how nervous he was. I remember more of the feelings and the environment more than his exact words. And I know DH doesn’t remember a single word he said that night either 🙂

Lol, I remember every word only because it was so short! It was New Year’s Eve and we had friends over. We turned on Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve show to watch the ball drop. Right after midnight we were all hugging and shouting when they showed a guy proposing in Times Square. My fiance looked over at me and said, "Well, I guess he ruined my surprise…" Then he got down on his knee and opened up the ring box. I started saying yes right away, so he didn’t really get to say anything else for about the next hour.

It was the day after Valentines Day, this year. I will never forget the look on his face as he asked me. It almost makes me cry when I picture it! I remember how we walked to the table and it was decorated with rose petals and champagne was chilling, how he insisted I eat an egg + toast and drink my cup of coffee so that I’m happy and satisfied lol and he kept toasting so that I would drink the champagne LOL. He stood up and walked away (with champagne flute in hand), I told him "Where are you going … you should put the glass on the table. He came back and was like "Close your eyes" …. I did and when I opened them he was saying something, for the life of me I do not know what he said b/c I was mesmerized by his face and the ring! I started crying!!!!!!!! He put the ring on my finger.
It was really special. I told him later that night, "What did you say to me, everyone keeps asking." LOL

I wish I could remember what he said!!
I guess it doesn’t really matter though, because I remember how I felt when because of what he said to me 🙂

Of course I remember, because the only things he said was "Oh I guess this will work [bend down] MyName, Will you Marry Me?" He got so overwhelmed and nervous that he forgot everything he was going to say! So precious… Hopefully he won’t do the same for our vows..

I remember him actually asking me to marry him, but the stuff he said before that is kind of a blur. I just remember saying "Oh my God" over and over again. 🙂 Just like you, Miss Rye Bread, I remember how I felt, but not what he said exactly.

Just like MoSnow my proposal was so short because my FI got SO nervous. I knew it was happining before it happened because we were walking towards the excat spot where we had met 4 years ago, but as soon as we reached the spot he hugged me and when I looked at him he was about to start crying so I said "Baby whats the matter" and then boom down on one knee and his whole body was shaking like crazy and still trying not to cry and he just said "you are the best thing that has ever happened to me, will you marry me?" I said Yes! And he was so nervous he just handed me the box instead of putting the ring on my finger 🙂
He told me that he had a whole speech prepared but when the time came, he just got so nervous and he was concentrating so hard on not crying that he forgot everything! It was so sweet and cute to see him that emotional 🙂

It’s so fuzzy! and sort of blocked out by my repeatedly saying "What are you doing!? What are you doing!?. He had a whole speech planned and I was just too surprised/taken to comprehend all the nice things he was saying! I wish he had paused to let me calm down so I could remember, but I think he was too nervous to stop 🙂
