I jokingly told him he couldn’t do it on a holiday or birthday.

My only “rule” was that I told him (years before he proposed) that I could never marry someone without my family’s blessing.  Since my dad passed away before we met, he asked my dad’s sister & her husband, and my dad’s mom for their blessings.

He actually brought up that he doesn’t want to do it on my birthday or holiday, especially not Christmas. He also said he would never do it at a restaurant. I’m just fine with that. I told him to just make sure that I’m not bumming around in PJs.

Haha, that’s funny! My Fiance actually proposed at an apartment that I was renting, so I guess we can’t return there! But, we still have the day that comes around once a year! 😀

I did! Not in front of family or friends. Not in a restaurant or hidden in food. And not near water.

Those rules are cute! My Fiance actually told me he thought that anyone who proposed on a holiday or a birthday was looking for an easy way out. It’s always easy to share a special day. It takes something good to MAKE a special day! <3

I really wanted him to hire a “paparazzi” for when he did it–like have my sister hiding in some bushes–but he ended up doing it in my room at 1am with just us 2. Either way, I was happy! We faked some shots of him doing it immediately after 🙂

I asked my Fiance to please not do it over Christmas because we were going to be staying with his family and I wanted either both families to be able to be there or neither.

My only request was no public proposal but honestly after 5 years, I wouldn’t have griped one bit!

I didn’t give him a list but Darling Husband knew that:

1)It couldn’t be done in a way that I couldn’t tell my family the truth. Ex. in bed or on vacation because my relatives are old fashion and I could never admit to going away with him

2) No sporting events

3)No holidays 

4)He needed to ask my dad

5) Getting down on one knee is a must

@bearlove:  I didn’t really want a bunch of people there but he did have a co-worker hide in the bushes to take a picture and I love that he did that!

I pretty much just didn’t want it to be in public.
