I knew a proposal was coming. We had been together 7 years, talked a lot about marriage, and went ring shopping together. However, I was not at all expecting him to do it the day he did. I was actually joking around earlier in the day that he should have brought the ring with him on the camping trip so he could do it – I had no idea it was in his pocket! I was shocked when he pulled it out while we were sitting around the campfire that night!

I knew it was coming and was expecting him to do it Christmas Eve, but he threw me off and did it the night before! P

He was adamant that he was doing it in Quebec in the summer on vacation. I was so surprised when he proposed yesterday that he had already been through most of his speech before my brain cued in to what was going on!

We decided to get married together so there was no element of surprise.

Honestly I was so shocked I’m sure I stood there for a good ten minutes with my mouth wide open. we’d discussed marriage previously and knew we were going to end up there eventually but I’d never pushed for it etc. 

I thought it was going to be another couple of years but when a man knows he wants to marry you, he knows. I loved the element of surprise to my proposal and I wouldn’t change it for the world.

I was totally shocked, and I’ve never been more surprised. It was amazing. the bad part about that was I was in my glasses, slouchy clothes and no makeup because I thought we were going to a midday say movie. nails also made a poor showing. cool

I had no clue, he picked the ring and picked when and where.  He had the ring for a few months.

Complete suprise – he proposed whilst on holiday about 1.5 years earlier than the timeline we had discussed! He even had a suprise photographer hiding snapping pics as he did it – so proud of him for all the work he put in! <3

I knew we would be getting married at some point and I thought he might propose at the end of 2016 or in 2017. He caught me completely by surprise in February 2016! Total utter surprise, I had no idea he’d even looked at rings and literally didn’t realise what was happening until he was on his knee. We had hiked to the top of a mountain so it was pretty cool.

There was no element of surprise. We went ring shopping together, I knew he was going to propose in December, and he talked to me about wanting to propose (like “man this activity would have been great for proposing. I should have brought the ring. Do you think it would be okay if I did it without the ring?”) for like 5 minutes before he asked me to marry him.

He’s a lovely man, but he’s not stealthy.

I had a suspicion that he’d propose on our weekend getaway, but you never know for sure until it happens.

I really didn’t see it coming, I was so shocked it actually took a while to register with me what he was doing and I told him to “get up off the floor”

We were both in mutual agreement about marriage, and the sooner the better, however I was 110% shocked and surprised with the actual proposal!
