 I think my perfect proposal would be like Disneyland Paris or something LOL. Im a huge disney fan and have always wanted to go to Paris – and we could celebrate at a fancy pancy restaurant lol

 

The worst would be during a fight or something HAHA. Like he just throws it at me and yells HERE! LOLLL

  • Wedding: June 2018

Worst – in front of family because it would turn into a big show and I know we wouldn’t have any time to ourselves to soak it all up

My proposal – started out like a typical date to a local Oktoberfest in a cute river town (we went during the date to beat the crowds). We strolled through the booths and I kept wanting a wristband and stein and DH was like “Nah, I’m not in the mood” which I was stupidly like okay, that’s cool. DH ended up proposing at the end of the booths/fest at the beginning of a park/nature trail, he suggested having a stranger getting ready to bike on the same trail “take our picture” – giant eyeroll there – and that was that. I didn’t see it coming. We went to a late lunch and had the rest of the day to ourselves.

I proposed to my girlfriend-now-fiancée on a mountaintop, with a professional photographer & a crowd. I propsed with a custom ring I had made for her on the other side of the world.

She absolutely loved it, it’s 100% her style.

I would have loved the same, a large, loud, proud, centre-of-attention moment: captured and treasured and shareable on social media and in pictures hanging on our walls. Flash mob, open mic night: yesplease.

Worst, personally (my opionion and I don’t mean to disrespect anyone’s wishes) would have been private, and in a place with no shared/special meaning to the 2 of us. Privacy, to me, feels too much like somehow secret or shameful.

gbear :  I had a great proposal but it was by no means a fairytale or perfectly choreographed but it was definitely us! We went to a fancy dinner and then went for a walk along the beach where my now  hubby proposed on the bench along the where we had our first kiss. I use the term ‘propose’ very loosely because hubby handed me the ring box and said ‘are you going to put this on?’. 😂 He’s obviously not a natural with words and he was nervous so his speech went out the window but I take great joy in teasing him every so often by saying ‘are you going to put this on?’. He knows that I’m teasing him and referring to that when I say it. (TMI but the funniest time I’ve slotted that phrase in was during sex with a condom 🤔🤣😂)

Honestly I wouldn’t have changed our proposal or could have thought of one better for us. I got to marry the greatest guy ever who is very sweet and very caring. I wouldn’t have ever complained about any proposal because I knew that he wanted to genuinely get married to me and the sentiment was there even if he momentarily forgot the words part. All the other stuff to me is bonus but unnecessary fluff.

The worst proposal for me would be a public one. It’s so not me and it would seriously make me question if the person asking me really  knew me well enough to actually marry?! I’d say yes to a helicopter toilet paper dick proposal way before I’d accept a public one. (if you’ve been on here a while you’ll know what post I’m referring to with the dick and toilet paper proposal 😁)

Best: Relativly private (like if it were in a park, and there are people around doing their own thing that’s fine, I just don’t want an audience), in a meaningful place.  Even our home would be really nice with a little mood lighting or something.  And some sort of thoughtful and sentimental speech.  Big bonus points for sneakily having it photographed.  And in my most extreme fantasies, I’d love if my parents and grandparents were secretly waiting for us in a bar or restaurant near by that he’d lead me into under the guise of toasting to our engagement.

Worst: Holiday proposals are NOT my thing.  I want the day to be special because we make it special.  I don’t want to compete with Christmas/Halloween/NYE, whatever.  And no to big public displays or cheesy signs.  I’m also not super into vacation proposals, because I like the idea of easily being able to go back to the special spot where we got engaged, but I wouldn’t be upset by a vacation proposal like I would a holiday and/or public proposal.

I love that there are so many different “ideal” proposals.
