    it was the first day of our cruise – at dinner… he had the matre’d bring out the ring on a dessert plate on top of a napkin that he had ordered, printed with “vanessa will you marry me?” on it. …and there was a cover on top of that. so i lifted the cover off and saw it and immediately said “oh my god!” and then he got down on his knee and i said “yes!” and was lauging (nervously) and crying at the same time!

    We’d been talking about it for almost a year, I knew he’d had a ring for about a month, and I knew he was planning on proposing that day, so there was no shock or surprise or anything. I did jump the gun a little, though…

    Him, On his knee: “S, Will you be my wi..”

    Me: “PUT IT ON ALREADY!!!” 

    In my defense, he’d had a little monologue going, and was just sitting there with the box opening looking at me. I expected him to put the ring on my finger, he thought I was supposed to take it out of the box and put it on myself.

    We got engaged mid Jan 2010 he had told me on New Years night literally 12 days before that this year we would get engaged but I thought knowing him it would be December 31st!

    When he proposed I said “Are you serious” about 5 times, he had to keep asking I was in such shock as he did it in front of all our parents which he said he would never ever tell his mum before he did it as she would blab to me so I did not expect it at all!

    Of course eventually I did say yes, and then I was in a daze for the rest of the day!

    He proposed with my nana’s engagement ring and then we went ring shopping together.

    when Fiance got down on one knee and did his whole speech : )  and i was crying at this point, he pulls out a wrapped box and asked if i would marry him and i said “i need to see the ring first”  I was totally kidding, though.  it coulda been a 5 dollar mood ring and I’d still want to marry him.

    He proposed in complit darkness at 5.25 in the morning while waiting for a sunrise on Sinai. My first words were “I can’t see anything!!”  ๐Ÿ™‚ I was opening my eyes wide but saw nothing… And he said “Just try it on”. Perfect size ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I laughed a little, asked him if he was effing kidding me and then said yes!  It was pretty un emotional because it was late and I was exhausted.

    I’m pretty sure it went like this…

    1. Holy Crap!

    2. YES, yes, yes!!!

    3. Did you ask my dad???

    Haha, I’m a little ashamed of the “holy crap” but I was shocked and it slipped out anyway….oh well, I don’t think he remembers anything except the yes part anyway ๐Ÿ™‚

    Mine was a variation of “you’re joking”. I said “OMG, are you joking?!” then I bawled lol. And I didn’t remember much of that, fiance had to tell me what I said, it was a blur to me.

    Bahaha… Mine is a funny story. We were getting gelato at a little downtown restaurant. We settled into a little booth. He awkwardly stammered, and then…

    Fiance: If I don’t do this now, I probably never will….. (gets out ring)


    Fiance: Wait, no?!

    ME: I mean YES!!!!!

    I don’t think he ever technically asked me during the actual proposal! Haha. But poor guy, we have revisited the event several times since, and he has formally asked me, ๐Ÿ™‚ But later on, I had to question the “if i don’t do this now, I never will” statement. He claims to not really be sure what that meant, but he was nervous & had no idea what he was saying! Haha so I am definitely the only vote in the poll who chose the “No” option! Haha!
