@spezia  Woah I’m really glad my Fiance didn’t propose in any of these ways! The pressure…. It seems more about showing off than anything real.

when i saw the title for the article, most amazing proposal, i was disappointed not to see mine.  i thought i had the most amazing proposal.

i had no expections but it was amzing.  DH sent me on a scavenger hunt through the city where we live.  i had to solve poems to get from place to place.  he was waiting in the treehouse in the scuplture garden where we had our first date on bended knee to propose.

I would not like to be proposed to in any of those ways.  Too much.

@spezia  Asking at the father’s tombstone for her hand in marriage?

How does he know the father approved?

These are ridiculous. People are turning a proposal into a full-blown circus! Gag.

@spezia  Ugh, eye roll.  That 3rd one – how narcissistic do you have to be to make your gf sit through 30 MINUTES of video of you proposing?!

But not gonna lie, I’d love a pug proposal.  How adorable!!!  The black lab one was pretty cute too 🙂  Maybe I’m just a sucker for animals helping pop the question!

I love #8. To get engaged and married in the same day was my DREAM!

@spezia  If there were a most simple proposal ever list, my DH and I would be on it. But at the end of the day, no one is any less married regardless of proposal style/type/etc. (for those who actually get married).

Did anyone see that Youtube video of that guy in a mall who proposed to his girlfriend in front of everyone and she rejected him and stormed off? Yeah, sometimes public proposals can backfire.

@spezia  I loved number 3. The guy is in production and acting, so he didn’t do it because she expected it. He even said at the end that all of that stuff was for him, because he knew all she cared about was family. I thought it was hilarious and creative. However, I don’t care how my honey proposes, I would be happy waking up with a ring on my finger and no official proposal! 🙂

We didn’t have an elaborate proposal, we just decided to get married, but making that decision and looking at each other and saying, “Yes, this is REALLY happening!” is still one of my absolute favorite memories.  I honestly cannot imagine it being any better if he’d made a video or rented a stadium.

@Asichka  I don’t have a deceased Father… But that seems a little creepy to me. Maybe if my father was dead it would seem sweet? But it just seems weird!
