Okay, so we’ve been talking about getting married for a year now. We’ve been struggling through the past year with us both across the country from each other, but in just two months he’ll be moving here! A year ago, he sweetly asked me is he could maybe one day be my husband, and he has proven himself in so many ways to be an amazing partner, and now I feel like it’s my turn to ask him.
I’ve been fanasizing about delivering him a surprise public proposal. I’ve always been shy about PDA’s, which I think hurts him a bit as he likes them. Knowing that I’m doing something out of my comfort zone would make him feel really special and I want to give that to him. I loved the idea of proposing at a football game – but football’s out-of-season and I’m not keen on waiting.
Anyways, I saw an ad for a Classics Live concert 3 months from now… you know one of the ones where they get a band to perform a classic rock album. Anyways, I think he’ll really like this one, and I was thinking of taking him and proposing to him there. I guess I’d need to get in contact with someone organizing the event… but I have absolutely no idea who to contact or what to say to convince them to let me do this. Plus I wouldn’t want to ruin the night for everyone else there. :S
Please tell me now if this is a bad idea before it’s too late!! (and suggest something better lol… I’m lost and soooo nervous)

Wilfred, Football season is very much underway…playoffs are about to happen! Although, in public and in a huge crowd like that…it may be too loud or words may get lost in the stands.
Contact the band and if not, contact the place where the band is going to play.
I tried to plan stuff for mine but it is surprising how some people/places arent willing to make accomodations for you, especially big places. Even when i offered to pay or rent out an entire place! Hopefully this place is smaller or the band/owner is cool. Call ahead because it took me months of calling around and even writing letters to people. In the end, I did it privately where I had control of what happens and when.
And I wouldnt worry about ruining everyone’s night…they would love to be apart of your special night. Anyone who has been engaged will feel happy to have seen another happy couple proposal.
If you need ideas…list some stuff your partner likes. Have you ever asked him how he would like to get engaged? Maybe, ask if he were to propose to you, how he would do it. etc. Or maybe even suggest movies where there were proposal scenes and try to strike up a conversation about it, like “oh, that was sweet, do you agree?” or…”oh, i would hate to be proposed to in public” etc. maybe that will give you ideas.
Either way, dont be nervous. it is a happy time and no matter what, you guys will love that day.
oh, and maybe try to not make it so complicated. I had all these complicated plans in the beginning and either they fell through or i realized, if one small thing went wrong, the whole proposal would get messed up or confused and you may even end up frustrating yourself.
