    My FI got down on one knee under the christmas tree in NYC…. completely unexpected and very unlike him to do something so public. It was perfect 🙂

    NOPE!  We were at the top of a Ferris Wheel in Ocean City, MD.  He didn’t even let go of the ring until we were back on the ground!  

     Now, we have been engaged a year and every night after I get done with the dishes and leave my ring on the kitchen table (I take it off while washing dishes) he will come into the living room and get down on one knee and ask me to marry him again.   Yes, this is a nightly thing for us.   I still giggle and laugh.   He always comes up with something funny and meaningful to say when he asks me each and every night.

    Mine did, under the Eiffel tower… althought I think I said “YES!” and pulled him up to kiss him after less than a second of him kneeling. Laughing

    It was for my 20th birthday and I was bummed because I thought it was such an UNexciting birthday. I was surprised when his grandparents came almost 3 hours for my birthday dinner. All of my family was at the restaurant and he had given me three gifts to unwrap. The first was a framed collage of us, the second a beautiful wedding like photo album, and the third was a picture of my engagement ring in a frame. At this point my FI had got down on one knee in front of the ENTIRE restaurant and I was bawling cause that was def the sweetest thing ever.

    Alot of my friends husbands didn’t, it depended a lot on where they were.  We wre in a wide open space with no one around so he got down on two knees but a lot of friends had romantic dinners and more of a grasping of the hand, or  told I have something to show you…..so it seemed like there were lots of different ways

    Yup, my FI did.  (I think I might have told him in advance that I wanted him to!)  But my best friend’s husband basically dropped the ring box in her lap when they were snuggling on the couch one night!  Down on one knee is definitely not the only way to propose!

    Mine didn’t.  He was sitting accross from me in our hotel room in Vegas and my ring was inside a Mrs. Potato Head doll (it made sense – I promise!)  I love my proposal story!!

    He sure did! Only I wasn’t expecting a proposal AT ALL and when he got down on one knee like that it shocked/scared/startled me so much (he got down on one knee behind me and then said my name so that I’d turn around) that I knocked the ring box clear out of his hands! Thank goodness it didn’t go far, because it was dark and we were next to a lake! 🙂

    My Fi proposed to me in front of the LOVE sign in Philadelphia. It was amazing because I really didn’t expect it. We donated blood at Citizen’s Bank Park that day and then wanted to go see the LOVE sign because neither of us had ever seen it before, so we parked somewhere and then started walking, and I’m just walking along taking pictures of the buildings and stuff and FI is walking ahead of me, and I’m not expecting anything, haha. Well we fianlly got there and we are looking for someone to take our picture and then a family comes up to us and askes if we can take one of them, and so we do and FI says why don’t we ask them and I’m like no no no they have a family and little kids to watch lets ask someone else. Then this guy looks at me and see that I’m looking for someone to take our picture and he points to himself and is like I can take a picture of you want, so I’m like “Okay great!” and so I’m walking to the statue and FI is kinda lagging behind but I don’t turn around or anything like that to see what is taking him so long, so then he finally shows up and we get our picture taken, and then when I go to get my camera from him he takes my hand and goes “Now hold on Miss, this is a very special moment right now.” and I’m like “What? What are you talking about?” and he laughs and goes over to my Fi (Boyfriend then) and says “Sir you come over here.” and then comes over to me and says “And you madame come over here.” and I’m looking at Fi like What the heck is going on, and all of a sudden he drops to one knee and opens this box, and is like “Will you marry me?” and I’m like “WHAT!? OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! YES!” I thought FI hired that guy to pick us out of the crowd because he was in a hurry to get to this staute, and was getting kinda annoyed when I would stop to take pictures, haha, but he didn’t hire him. When we went to get our picture taken, FI showed the guy the ring real quick, and the guy was like “Wow, go for it!” haha and thats why he was lagging behind, but I was so shocked, and had no idea. I should of known something was up because he told me he always wanted to propose to someone there, and well he got his wish, haha.

     

    Here are some pictures the guy captured, haha. dont mind me looking like crap because I just got blood taken 35 mins prior to this, haha.
