Hey Bees! So I am working part-time at a beautiful venue in ATL. A lot of weddings take place here. Today we had a young man walk into my manager’s office. He basically wanted to propose to his GF by our beautiful gardens and wanted to know about pricing for this unique situation. She gave him the pricing info but wanted to learn more about what he was planning. He told her about the ring and how she loved our location and wanted to get married here. Then my manager asked him if he hired photographers. He couldn’t believe he forgot that! He was feeling so silly and couldn’t believe he didn’t hire someone to capture this amazing moment.
I hope everyone’s proposal has been/will be everything they hope for. But what are some things you wish your man did a bit differently? Or what were some important key things that you would have liked to be there (i.e. family, photographers, etc).
Personally, I can understand how a guy might forget to hire photographers.

Our proposal was photographed but we spent the night on a couch in a crowded frat house, he could have thought that through a little better, but he asked me to marry him so I was ecstatic regardless

He proposed on a sailboat and I got seasick right after 🙂

@southernbelle381: I absolutely loved our hiking proposal… But the ring was ginormous and we had to duct-tape it onto my finger! Haha. In his defense, I was incorrectly fitted for a 6.75 and I needed a 5.25 (doh). Although I wished it fit intially, I love the duct-tape story (and still have the tape saved in my jewelry box). 🙂

I guess I wish thatI hadn’t figured it out on the way to the restaurant. So no big surprise or shock. But it also gavee me time to get excited.
Personally, I didn’t want my family/friends there and I would not have wanted a professional photographer. But that’s me.

No photographers or anything like that – I had said to him i just wanted it to be him and I – none else around so it could be our special moment.
He proposed under a waterfall in the middle of a beautiful forest near the great ocean road. It was such a hot day, I was really sweaty and shaky and my legs were shaking so much i thought i would fall off the rock we were standing on. And i couldnt stop crying. It was a very beautiful, special moment.

@MrsEME: Ditto to yours, exactly! Proposal pics are cute, but having that moment just the two of us under the moonlight, THAT was amazing and totally beats cute pics. The wedding is enough of a production, no need for that moment to be one too!
(I don’t judge those who have big production proposals, but I HATE that now it’s almost expected!)

@southernbelle381: I told my fiancé I wanted something intimate and not public (just my preference). He came up with the sweet idea to propose in our future home (it was in the process of being built). He called the building site supervisor to get permission to go into the house and to also gave him a time so that he could make sure the construction workers were out of the house. When we arrived at that time there were still construction workers in the house (I didn’t think it was a big deal since I just thought we were checking out the progress) but then he got down on one knee and I realized what was going on. I felt SO awkward because all these workers were watching us and I couldn’t even concentrate on what he was saying to me, I’m pretty sad I missed it. So ya I was a bit dissapointed that he didn’t wait when he saw we weren’t alone but he had booked us a cottage and we headed there after for an amazing weekend. I got him to repeat to me what he said when we were finally alone 🙂 in the end I’m engaged to my dream man so I don’t mind 🙂

Um its not like hiring photogs is the norm. Anyway mine wasn’t what he planned, but it was perfect bc a great guy asked me to marry him.

I wish he didn’t include my mom. She was super pay and we ended up getting engaged in front of a most waterfall. I have no idea what he said. I’m not sure why he didn’t pull rank amd do it at the spot he picked out. Maybe he was trying to be polite. None the less I didn’t need or want her there.

We went to dinner after the proposal to celebrate, and I think we were forgotten about because it took over two hours to be seated late at night…oh well! We were busy calling/texting people about the news.

- Wedding: May 2013 - Pavilion overlooking golf course scenery, reception at banquet hall
Two parts: I was wearing my “fat clothes Friday” casual Friday outfit after work (my fault), and he forgot to have our song playing like he planned (his fault) 😛 Still love our proposal and wouldn’t change it, but those are the parts that technically “went wrong”.

@southernbelle381: My first husband just said hey, let’s get married. So that could be why we are divorced! LOL!!
My FI made it a romantic enough night, but I wanted to be surprised and I was not. And the first time he says he propsoed was my 30th birthday. All I know is I woke up with a ring on my finger the next morning. Never the less, we are engaged and one day I may work up the courage to marry him. LOL!
