I was chatting to some friends the other day about how FH proposed, and the silly things I said when he asked the big question. So basically, what did you say(other than yes/no obviously) was it funny or just babbling and crying?
My answers were something like: (he bends on one knee) Oh my god. Are you serious?! (pulls out the ring box) Really? Oh my god, you’re serious….(starting to cry) Wait! Did you ask my dad??? (answer was yes) Yes! (Then I cried..)
HAHA!! What a silly thing to say!! Well thats my story, what’s yours??

Lol I said yes in a really small voice and shoved my head into his shoulder to hide the crying (we were sitting next to each other in a booth). It was so quiet people asked what my answer was hahaha

My husband only said “well I guess I should ask you” then didnt say anything just produced the ring… so I was just shocked and he then said are you going to respond? and I said yes.
The poor love was so nervous and planned the whole day by re-creating our first date and had a friend hiding in the trees taking photos of it all that the poor love forgot the words!!! Which is TOTALLY unlike him! He is amazing with words and even wrote our first dance song, sang it, played lead in it and produced it but that one question he couldnt get out hahaha!

After he asked me I said ” Aren’t you suppose to say a speech or something?” To his sweet reaponse ” A speech would only look towards the past and I only want to look towards the future with you.”

@Sunbeam-bride: it wasnt the silly thing i said…it was DH who was silly.
He got down on one knee and asked the question and i was hysterical crying to the point where i couldnt talk and he is still down on one knee and says “wait…wait..so is this a yes?” And all i could do was nod my head and he got up and put the ring on me and once i calmed down I said you knew i would say yes and he says yea but i needed to hear it! Lol

Mine isn’t that weird (I don’t think) but I said “Yes, please” instead of just Yes.

I didn’t say a word except Yes! I was smiling the whole time and kept looking at his pocket waiting for him to put the ring on. He was nervous so I would touch his mouth/ chin trying to stop it from quivering.

I said “yes, I will” in a small voice aha and then right after I said “I thought you had class today”, because he skipped class so that he could surprise me with the ring when I got home from school 😉

Mine was pretty funny actually, My FI proposed at the church me parents were married at and both my parents were there for my proposal and I just kept crying and saying “are you joking?”, “is this a joke?”, “if you guys are kidding this is so mean”, and then I stopped talking at all and he whispered “just say yes” then I remembered I needed to give him an answer, lol.

We were on a hike so I wasn’t expecting it. He gave me a big hug, said something sweet and got down on one knee. I was so shocked I said “are you kidding me?!” just as he said “will you marry me?” Then I think I opened and closed my mouth a couple times before I could say “Yes!” 🙂

Where he proposed was not very well lit. We were at a private dinner on a beach and just had torches for light. The waiter brought dessert (I was told it was a second one, since I was allergic to the first) under a silver cover.
I took my cover off and proceeded to jab a fork into what I thought was chocolate cake. I even looked at John and said, “Oooh, chocolate cake!” Lol!! Then, when my fork didn’t go in, I said, “Oh, I guess it is frozen.” He finally told me it wasn’t chocolate cake.
Then I finally started to figure it out and got really excited as he got on one knee. I know I said yes, but I don’t really think I said much of anything else. Probably some “I love you”s between crying and laughing.

My fi woke me up in the middle of the night to propose.
His mother gave him a heirloom ring to propose with.. and one night when I was sound asleep, he came in and gently shook me until I woke up.
He had a whole speech prepared!
Basically about how he felt like I was his soul mate, best friend and he couldn’t stand to imagine his life without me.
I was half asleep, I honestly didn’t hear most of it, and then I heard, “Will you be my best friend, forever? Make me happiest man alive and be Mrs. Scott Shelton?”.
My eyes flew open and I was like, “WHAT?!”. Once I realized what was happening I shed a few tears of joy and said yes!
