Don’t feel bad. I actually don’t remember what my fiancé said either. I remember I teared up and that he said will you marry me but leading up to that I have no recollection of what he said which sucks. So you are not alone! 🙂

I’m kind of the same way, don’t worry.  The second I saw him down on one knee, it was almost like tunnel vision kicked in.  Every thought possible went through my head and I don’t necessarily remember hearing the exact words “will you marry me?”  and then I knew I had to give a response and literally the thoughts that went through my head were “he asked me a question, answer! yes! no! maybe! Those are my options, Yes!” I had no hesitation in marrying him or saying yes but it was just such an overwhelming moment, my mind went into overdrive!  Don’t feel too bad!

Literally every woman I’ve ever talked to after a proposal says this same thing, especially the ones who didn’t know it was coming.  You are not alone! 

Emotions wreak all sorts of havoc on the human memory- you probably ran the gamut of emotions during the proposal!  If you’re like me, you were also probably somewhat distracted by your own interal monologue along the lines of “Oh my god, this is happening!  Wait, is there somehing in my teeth?  All these people have stopped eating and are watching us!  What is that waiter doing?  Ooh, sparkly ring!  I can’t wait to call my mom/dad/sister/best friend!  Eeee!”  🙂

Congratulations on your engagement, what a lovely story!  And the part about not remembering is a part of it, it actually makes it sweet that you were so excited you can’t remember what exactly he said.

I don’t really remember mine either! He really suprised me, a ton of family was there, and I was so confused as to what was happening! I just kept thinking “omg did he not ask my dad?” (he did, but pretended that he didn’t in the weeks leading up to the proposal to throw me off). I have a vague memory of him asking will you marry me, but I don’t remember saying yes (I did). I think that this is maybe semi-normal? It’s just a lot is happening at once, a lot of emotions, a lot to process!

Yeah, parts of mine are fuzzy too. Makes me a little sad sometimes but I know I said yes.

I don’t remember what my fiance said either! The funny thing is that he doesn’t even remember because he was so nervous. it was a total surprise to me….I just remember him getting down on one knee and tearing up and me being pretty much speechless. I remember, vaguely, him asking me to marry him and then having to prompt me to say yes because I was still in shock. My sister has it all on video and it’s quite funny to watch. I will always remember the look on his face when he was proposing though. I felt so much love 🙂
