    He got it exactly right πŸ™‚

    Central park, on the lake, people on the opposite side could see him go down on one knee, but no one was close enough to hear what was said.

    *happy sigh*

    I smile every time I think about it. πŸ˜€

    There isnt a poll response for I dont care lol.. As long as he gets down on one knee I dont care where its done. I dont even care if its with a ring or not. I just want to be married to him. Forget the ring.. forget the lavish ceremony. He + me +courthouse= a happy ren.

    i def wanted it to be pretty private, maybe in a public place where people could see us but not hear. I wouldn’t have wanted a huge audience for sure though, he knew that i think.

    But he did it perfectly, late one night in our apartment, just us. good thing too because my ugly cry was especially disgusting… i’m glad no one else witnessed it.

    i hate being the center of attention, so i wanted it to be just us. he knows me well enough to know that. we were camping, and went for a walk and he found a beautiful bridge, and hung out there until the people that were on it left. luckily my family was on the camping trip and happened to find us right after, so they could take pictures then.

    My husband proposed excatly how I would have if I were asking myself πŸ˜‰

    We took a trip for my birthday back to our college town for a football game & we drove around on a tour to some of our old favorite places. We ended at the apartment complex where we met, got out and walked to the volleyball courts (which was the exact place where we first met) and he proposed right there! Thankfully nobody was around, except for one guy who was on his balcony, so it was just perfect!!

    I would like something pretty private outdoorsy when I am not looking a mess πŸ™‚  He is a pretty shy person so I don’t see him doing it in front of a lot of people.  Speaking of which… our mutual friend wanted to visit this summer during the weekend of our anniversay and I was like, “Oh Nick, it’ll be awkward if you have to propose in front of Steve.”  Honestly, I don’t think he’ll propose on our anniversay or any type of holiday thing for that matter.  Ho hum!

    I wanted it to be pretty private… He ende up taking me to Millenium Park along with his Bridesmaid or Best Man and gf made me think it was a double date while his Bridesmaid or Best Man took pictures every two seconds lol he always does that so I didnt think anything weird…so then they made us do silly poses and one of the silly poses was for him to “pretend” he was proposing and before I knew what was happening he was proposing for real!! I now have amazing pictures of him on one knee with the whole chicago skyline as a background! I just wish his friend would have left after that and let us have a nice romantic dinner by ourselves..instead they stayed with us the whole night which made me a little annoyed but I was grateful for them coming along and taking the amazing pics!

    He asked me at midnight on New Years, just the two of us.  I could not have asked for anything better.

    I always wanted it to take place at Disneyland .. but when it came down to it I was scared that he would actually do it there. I am extreme stage fright and am a very anxious person!

    I’m with theRen! I don’t care either. As long as it means something to me and him, fine by me! That being said, I suppose I’d rather it not be in front of like, thousands of people πŸ˜›

    I want the proposal to be just the two of us it will be more special that way to me anyway.  I also don’t like being the center of attention I get shy and embrassed so an audience is a no go for me.  Although I do agree with ren if he did decide to do it with a lot of ppl I wouldn’t care the fact that his proposing is enough.

    I definitely wanted it to be private, and I also told him he couldn’t propose when I had just rolled out of bed or got back from the gym because I wanted to look nice.

    He did a great job; he proposed on a private balcony at our favorite champagne vineyard up in Napa, and I did look cute. It was where we had first said “I love you” a year earlier πŸ™‚

    I am a huge baseball freak, and I want the classic stadium proposal. I know it’s cheesy, but I love baseball!

    This may sound nuts, but I always dreaded the thought of being proposed to.  I swear if my fiancé had ever gotten down on one knee in front of me I might have turned thirty-six shades of red and punched him in the face.  I can’t really explain why, but it’s true.  This is one (but a small) reason why I took matters into my own hands and did the proposing!  We were in a semi-public place–off to the side of the steps at the Metropolitan Museum of Art–and I had written, “Will you marry me?” with a ring on one of the last pages of a photo album I’d made for him.  No getting down on one knee or making a spectacle, I don’t even know if anyone noticed us.
