My husband proposed to me on a Thursday night, on the couch, over pizza.  He had a ring though.  It was fairly low key.  I didn’t mind.  It was very much to our style.

I’m sorry you might be bummed but you’ll have more control of how your wedding will go down and the proposal won’t seem so important

Awwwww… sounds like a good story 🙂  especially if it explains his personality!  Congratulations!!  Are you two going to go pick out the ring together?  Or are you going to let him surprise you?

Mine was pretty much the same. No ring in my dining room, after months of saying he had a ring and was going to propose. Sadly, it was very disappointing and just one of many huge let downs i

n our relationship. I wish I would have opened my eyes and realized how little effort he put into our relationship rather then wanting to be married so badly. That’s just my story, I’m sure your fiance loves you very much! Congrats! Now go get to picking out your ring!

Cute story!  Congrats!

I’d take that proposal right now although…I think techincally I’m engaged, at least that’s what people have been saying. SO and I plan to get married next year, no date set but thats the plan so my mom says that’s engaged. I told her he hasn’t officially asked and I dont see a ring… so until one or both happens.. we are not engaged! lol

ezasabc123:  That’s sweet and very heartfelt.  I love it!

My FI proposed over messy BBQ and beer at this “joint” from Guy Fieri’s DD&D we went to in Nashville.  He had the ring in pocket our entire trip and was just waiting until it felt right.  Just us in the restaurant, sawdust on the floor and BBQ sauce under my fingernails lol.  It was perfect!

ezasabc123:  Congratualtions.  My husband and I decided together when we were in Asheville for a get away.  We just looked at a calendar and picked a date, and I said, well, I guess we’re engaged.  LOL, we have both been married before an have kids and well, it had to be a mutual decision, not a surprise.  I got my ring like 3 months later.  We designed it together.

My guy woke me up with a proposal at 6:30am on a Tuesday in his boxers, and then he went to work. There was a ring though.

My husband proposed to me on a random wednesday evening while we were watching TV. There were no grand gestures or epic monologues, just basically and exchange of the ring box (and the ring inside).

It suited us perfectly. I will admit that I was somewhat jealous of others grand and intricate proposal stories but as time has gone on I am quite happy that our story is our own.

ezasabc123:  Well, we were planning to wait until I had the ring, but his ex-wife announced her engagement, so we ended up have to tell sooner than we had planned, because we already had a date with a venue and we didn’t want her to pick our date.  We worried for nothing.  She ended up not getting married.  I think we waited about a month.

ezasabc123:  Congratulations on your engagement!

My proposal was pretty low-key, too. My DH and I went to pick out a ring together because he didn’t want to pick it out on his own. The plan was to get the ring and then he would pick a time later to propose so that it would be a surprise. At the first appointment with the jeweler, we picked out the setting and stone. Then we had to go back (it was about a 2 hour trip, one-way, from where we lived at the time) to pick it up once it was ready.

A week or so later, we went back to the jeweler and picked up the ring. On the way out of the building, in the stairwell (complete with peeling, industrial-gray paint and the echoes of footsteps on the floors above us), he got down on one knee and told me he couldn’t wait for later. He asked me to marry him and said it would make him the happiest man in the world if I said yes. And of course, I did!

Very low-key. Very unexpected, in its own way. Not elaborate or planned or anything like that. But sweet, heartfelt, and absolutely perfect. I still get a bit choked up when I think about it.
