    There’s a song called Never Be Ready by Matt Kearney. He talks about how you’ll never be ready if you keep waiting for the perfect time to come. We both like the song and I had been waiting a long time for him to finally propose. While we are sitting around a fire hes gathering the courage and the words to propose he says:

    Him: Babe. You mean a lot to me. We’ve been through a lot. Blah blah blah. You know the song “Never Be Ready?”

    Me: Yeah. That’s like your anthem!

    Him: *Silence* anyways….. like I was saying

    Lmaooooo. We laugh about it now cause he was trying to find the right things to say and I kinda derail him. But after that I finally realized what he was doing and it was really sweet.

    Neither Fiance or I remember what he said… I think it was pretty short, he was super nervous/excited and his parents were there taking photos. Really no idea what happened, it was definitely a blur! I remember the events leading up to the proposal and everything after, but the proposal itself… All I remember is him getting down on one knee after saying he loved me, and him saying, “Will you marry me?” and pulling out a ring, and I was so surprised. It was incredibly lovely and romantic even though neither of us remember what he said! He proposed on Christmas Eve in the snow at my favourite place, and it was perfect 🙂 

    To be fair, we are super super mushy and romantic and sweet to each other all the time and say romantic speeches on the regular, so I don’t feel like either of us are missing out by not remembering the words of the proposal or by it not being very long!

    So he got really nervous and forgot what he was going to say and therefore what came out was, and I quote, “so…uh…I was wondering, y’all wanna get hitched?”

    He does NOT talk like that normally, haha! But I love that I get to quote that when people go “so what did he say?!”

    He didn’t say much. ^_^ he set it in front of me as I was looking over a lunch menu in a dimly-lit balcony area of one of our favorite restaurants, and he asked, “Will you marry me?” I still feel so happy when I think about that moment. We were out shopping around for last-minute Christmas gifts last year and I didn’t at all know he had it with him.

    I don’t remember exactly, but he said something along the lines of, “You’re the smartest and kindest and most beautiful person in the world, and I love you a lot. This last year with you has been the best year of my life, and I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?” It was short and sweet.

    For the proposal all I remember is blurting out “are we getting married?” when he got down on one knee and he replied with “will you let me ask the damn question.” LOL.

    When he proposed, it was probably -25*C outside. We were both freezing…. and I don’t remember what he said 😬 I know that he was super nervous and jumbled up my name (REALLLYYYY hoping he doesn’t do this at the wedding!)

    notmeeither :  I totally remember the exact words my fiance said when proposing! It was such a special moment (that I somewhat suspected would happen) and I had waited so long for it, it is burned into my memory forever!

    For background info; fiance and I were together 10 years before the proposal and he proposed on a beach in Mexico, which was our first vacation, 10 year aniiversary and my birthday all rolled into one!

    I dont think I’ll ever forget his exact words or the story! <3

    I wish I remember it all. But I remember some phrases, like, “You know I love you, right?” And the all important, “Will you marry me?” I was too impatient and excited to remember everything he said, but it was perfect.
