My Fiance proposed this past May on vacation in Key West.  We were standing on a beautiful pier that overlooked the ocean when he got down on one knee. It was just the two of us, intimate and private which was perfect.

We were on vacation in England in May. We’d done so many things, and had such a good time! We both loved the show Downton Abbey, and we went to the castle where they filmed it, Highclere Castle. He did it there, while we were alone (not an easy feat, apparently!) on their grounds. He’d wanted to do it where two of the characters got engaged, but there were too many people! 

It was perfect, and I was totally surprised. We got engaged at Downton Abbey!

My DH proposed last year on a hiking trip. When we made it to the top of a mountain with a beautiful view, he pulled out the ring and proposed.

However, he later told me that his real plan was to have a picnic by the lake after we hiked. We play Scrabble a lot, but I always cheat and ask him for letters I don’t have. Well he brought Scrabble, and took all the O’s out, knowing I’d get frustrated and ask for an O. Instead of an O he was going to give me the ring.

But then the view from the summit was so pretty he went ahead and proposed up on the mountain. ๐Ÿ™‚

My Fiance proposed last Forth of July with all my friends around. He used the song “Everything” and had his daughters draw pictures to the lyrics, put them on poster board and flipped through them (like the INXS video if you’re old like me and remember). It was very sweet – I had no idea that was how he was going to propose.

  • Wedding: A restaurant on the beach

My Fiance proposed 4 days after Christmas on a balcony overlooking Rome. My dad lives in Ireland so my mom, sister, and I went to see him for Christmas. Because my Fiance wanted to ask for my dad’s blessing, he met us in Ireland the day after Christmas. We spent time with my family and then headed to Rome and he proposed shortly after arriving at our hotel! It was perfect and private just like I wanted. I did know in advance that he was planning on proposing but I wasen’t sure if it would be during that vacation. We had been dating for 9.5 years at that time.

I’m so excited to say this: he proposed this weekend ๐Ÿ˜€ strung 200 photos of our journey so far together with the first photo we ever took near the beginning. He placed an endless string of lights on the floor that in the end formed a heart where he got down on his knee. It was the most amazing thing ever haha I’m still on cloud 9!!!

  • Wedding: October 2014

We had plans wth friends/family for an event we started doing annually February 2014. We went over to his sister’s to eat before going to this event, and our parents and his brother/SIL were also coming over at some point.

We got there super early, on purpose, and out walks 2 of his nephews dressed up in little suits (they were almost 5 and almost 2). The oldest had a bag that I was asked to open, which had the ring it in. DH got down on his knee, had both boths on either side and proposed.

Then we celebrated with the family/friends we saw that night!

Easter proposal here! We always get eachother easter baskets filled with treats and candies, that easter (2015) he had worked all week leading up to easter and I thought he had forgotten. I had his basket all ready for him on the counter and was getting ready for the day, not even thinking about a proposal. He walked out from getting dressed and said “you ready for your basket?” He then walked out into the garage (I was so confused, why was it in the garage!?) and then when he walked back in he got down on one knee with the ring (and my favorite candies) in my Easter basket and proposed. It was sweet and personal, we then got to spend the day celebrating with family!

He told me to meet him at the beach with his family for a bonfire at sunset. He walked me from the parking lot and when we got to a raised deck overlooking the beach I noticed something sparkling from the sand below. I looked down and he wrote out Marry Me? in candles and when I turned to him he was down on one knee. It was just us and our close friend down below taking pictures and recording it all. I was totally surprised and it was one of the best days of my life.

My Fiance had planned on taken me out for dinner at our favourite restaurant. He had bought the ring on a Wednesday, then realized that I would see the purchase from our joint account so he freaked out and proposed as soon as we got home from work that day lol.

We are in an LDR and I was down there for my school’s spring break. He had ordered the ring through a small boutique store local to me And it came in the Friday of my break… Just in time for me to leave!!  He wanted to go to Atlantic City and propose on the Ferris wheel on Saturday but I wanted to go to the mall like the shopaholic I am. Oops!! 

The next day he suggested we go to brunch at my favorite creperie which also happens to be where we had our first date on my first visit out there. He proposed after we ordered. It was very romantic and a total surprise. The people around us got really excited and congratulated us and our waitress gave us sparkling wine! Then I had to leave to come back for school that afternoon. My students were so excited to learn about it the next day!

  • Wedding: Backyard

We went to the mountains for the weekend of our one year local anniversary (we were long distance for 9 months before he moved here.) We went snowshoeing for the first time and that’s when he proposed!
