@otto2008: As soon as he dropped down on one knee, my brain when fuzzy, I started jumping like a maniac! I remember him saying that he wants to have the honor of being with me for the rest of our lives, and then a simple “LeSpice, will you marry me?” and at this point I was just crying and nodding yes. I didn’t see the ring for a while, even thought it was on my finger haha.
Don’t stress too much, do it from your heart, that’s all that matters 🙂

@otto2008: Don’t plan it, I agree with @Everdeen:
get those right. Anything else, let it happen in the moment! If you have it rehearsed you’ll be more stressed about getting the words right!

It was so sweet 🙂
I had to keep asking what was going on, because all of our friends and family were filing into the room. He was saying something about how much he loves and cares for me, and wanted to be with me forever. I looked away from the line of people filing around us to find him on his one knee, where asked “will you mar-” I didn’t even let him finished, I just shouted out yes! The whole bistro staff applauded (he worked there at the time) and there were a few tears…mostly mine LOL!

Awww! I love the idea behind this thread!
Before I read it all…
He asked me to marry him while we were on the beach near our house; casual, just us, no big workup. We knew we would be getting engaged but I wasn’t, like… waiting on it.
He said: “Do you want to get married?…. I mean… will you marry me?”
and between the first question and the second, I had already said yes 😉 so I said yes again to the second question! He felt like he had to ask that specific question when in fact the first one covered it all!!
And after that we went and picked out the ring together.
Whatever you do, I’m sure it’ll be perfect for YOU.

@otto2008: He pulled his car over and I distinctly remember him saying “what a pretty road” (not a thing he would normally point out although it really was a nice road lol). Then I looked over at him and he had the ring box out on his lap opened up and said “Will you marry me?” I was in so much shock that it’s hard to remember the rest, and I cried a lot of happy tears like all day, but it was just so perfect 🙂 Oh and he told me he had a little speech prepared but he forgot it because he was nervous! I thought that was adorable. He even had it written out in his phone … I made him show me later! I think it’s mean when girls say their bf “ruined” the proposal – give him a break, he’s asking the most important question of his life, maybe cut him a little slack!!

Some bees said to write down what to say, but that would probably come off a little practiced. So i’m just gonna go with the heart on this one….
I don’t think it’ll really matter what I say because she’ll be super surprised because she thinks it’s not happening! and the ring is due in a couple more weeks

I remember what he said. It was so sweet. He proposed to me on a mountain, overlooking our town. When we first met, we were training for a mountain run together, and we did a lot of running on the trails around there. He told me that he brought me there b/c that’s where he fell in love with me. I was with someone else when we first started running together, so he thought we would always just be friends. He told me that when we first met, he told his mom that if he ever met a girl like me, he’d marry her! He didn’t realize that my other relationship was not good at all. It ended shortly after I met my fiance, we eventually started dating, and the rest is history.

@otto2008: “Will you marry me?” haha, he forgot his speech he was so nervous. AND, after I said yes, he just stayed there on one knee with no idea what to do next. haha. I had to pull him up off the floor to kiss him. And then he just handed me the ring.
So, while that is exactly my Mr. S and I’m not disappointed, I’d recommend that when she says Yes, you KISS HER. And put the ring on her finger! Don’t hand it over… 🙂

@otto2008: I remember because it was very simple. He got down on one knee, I thought he was tying his shoe and offered to hold his gloves, to which he said, “No, I have to ask you a question though. Will you marry me?”
I remember saying yes, laughing hysterically, getting down on my knees with him (in the snow!), but I don’t really remember anything that was said during that time. I was so overwhelmed and surprised!

He was so nervous he could barely stammer out a “Will you marry me?” I thought it was so adorable that he was nervous! I loved my proposal, it wasn’t about the ring or what he said, it was about knowing the man I love wants to spend the rest of his life with me.

@otto2008: this isn’t exact, but it was something along the lines of : hey babe, you know the last few years have been so amazing, I’m so lucky to have you. you’re such a beautiful,kind person, and I love you. (Then he got down on one knee) will you Make me the happiest man alive? Will you marry me? (Which was then followed by me going oh my gosh, are you serious. Your seriouS.. Did you ask my dad first?<
yeah, of all things thats what I said.. Haha.) but obviously I said yes:)

I think as long as you tell her how you feel about her and how much you want to marry her and speak from the heart you will be fine.
I know my husband said a lot of things about wanting to spend his life with me etc etc… but what I KNOW for a fact he said was “the reason I’ve been such a jerk this week was because I have been so nervous!”
We were at the tail end of a family vacation and he’d been such an ass all week I was about to push him into the ocean.

Just speak from the heart.

Honestly, I don’t. I so wish I did though. He remembers every word he said. I was so emotional and excited in the moment I just stared at him in (happy!) shock. I do remember the last part, he said “I love you more than anything in this world. Will you marry me?” It makes me smile. All that mattered was that the man I am completely in love with wanted to spend his life with me. I’m sure the wording (which he taunts me with to this day) was incredibly romantic and sweet, but I just can’t recall it all.

This is how my Fiance proposed. He took out for dinner (to celebrate my graduation from grad school, I thought) and then took me to Nights of Lights, a big Christmas light thing that you drive through. At the end, when we were sitting in the car waiting for it to warm up, we had this conversation.
Him: You know what’s shinier than all these lights?
Me: *looks at him like he’s a nutbag* What?
Him: *presents ring*
Me: OMG really?
Him: So what do you say?
He never actually said “Will you marry me?” but it was still completely awesome and very us.
You should do/say somthing that lets your personality shine and takes hers into consideration. Don’t turn into someone completely different for the proposal. You want her to marry you not a random Rico Suave impersonation. Everyone who talks about the “perfect” proposal is talking about one that fits their relationship, so definitley keep that in mind.
