I knew the proposal was coming (we’d talked about it tons and I knew the family rings had finally been sized), but the moment still felt completely surreal. I got really hot and tingly and my arms went numb, but I did not cry. So I still had a physiological reaction… Just curious if anyone else had some unexpected sensations, or if you all mostly just cried!

It was unexpected, so my mouth was open for quite a while.
But looking back, I don’t think I cried. Maybe a tear.

I teared up when I saw my FI tearing up, but I was mostly shaking like crazy and breathing quickly. I’m not a huge crier unless I’m sad.

It was an unexpected proposal and I couldn’t stop laughing. I think I was in shock.
But, no tears. I felt a little bad for FI that I didn’t….

No tears, just a big happy smile!! At the ceremony, I could see his mouth trembling with emotion and I just felt more of like an out of body, seeing myself from far away emotion, because it was so overwhelming!

MadameX: I cried a LOT! I knew i’d get teary as i’m usually pretty emotional but I cried a lot more than I thought I would haha
My FI cried as well so I think that set me off as it was the first time i’d really seen him get that emotional it was so sweet!
I’m hoping I can hold it together a little better during the ceremony!

MadameX: Thought I would cry but I ended up laughing at him because he just blurted it out during our picnic, haha.

I thought I would cry when he proposed, but instead I literally jumped up and down in excitement and squealed… Guess I was excited… haha

I teared up because DH was crying. But I didn’t cry. I was shocked. I knew it was coming in the sense that we had talked about and said it would happen soon. But I had no idea he had talked to my dad, no idea he had gotten a ring, and two day before he proposed he said that it probably wouldn’t happen for a couple months. He had planned a day on the boat for us and he even had his friends say they were going (which severely missed me off) and then last minute deciding they wouldn’t come. So I had NO CLUE!

MadameX: OMG!! I had the same reaction!! I felt like I was going to have a stroke! That weird feeling lasted for about three hours hahah! I thought I was going to cry, not have my blood pressure rise into the danger zone lol.

MadameX: Nope. My hands were shaking and I was smiling like an idiot but no tears until a couple hours after the actual proposal!
