- Wedding: June 2018
So I predicted right and during our vacation he proposed!!!
We did the Disney Land and Sea adventure with his family, so it was 3 days in the parks and 4 days on the Disney cruise. I had a pretty good feeling that he would propose during the trip, especially when he let it slip the week before that he had the ring. I was thinking he might do it during the photo session we had set up. We had talked about getting married in the Bahamas so we wanted to test out a photographer and figured engaged or not it would be fun. Turns out I was partially right, the photo shoot was his backup plan but he carried the ring around with him all week hoping to find the perfect moment. He almost did it during the electric light parade in Magic Kingdom and then thought about doing it on Space Mountain (my absolute favorite ride) and holding up the ring when the camera flashed.
He ended up finally doing it the first night of our cruise and the night before our photo shoot. At this point I was convinced it would happen either the next day or after our trip. On our itinerary I saw they were playing the Match game in the adult area nightclub and got him and his cousin and her husband to check it out. He told me he tried so hard to get us on as one of the couples for the Match game but we didn’t get chosen. Then he spoke to the emcee at one point (which I was totally oblivious to) and asked if he could get the mic because he wanted to propose. She said sorry but the whole night is scripted so she couldn’t. We all had a great time, they played a bunch of different games and even had a “I Will Survive” lip synch contest that his cousin won.
As the night was winding down, his cousin was reading over the paper with the details of the spa package that she won from the lip synch contest. She claimed that she couldn’t make heads or tails of what she actually won and asked my boyfriend to go ask the emcee if she knew. Maybe I’m completely oblivious, but I didn’t see anything suspicious about this. He comes back saying he asked the emcee and DJ but neither of them really know. Then just as we’re getting ready to head out, the emcee comes over our way saying she’s looking for a Mike. Still not suspicious, I’m thinking now hes getting called up for one of the contests like his cousin did and oooh maybe we’ll win a spa package too, lol.
He takes the mic from the emcee and goes up to the middle of the dance floor/stage area and finally I realize something is up. Then he calls me to come on stage with him and introduces me as the women who bought his drinks all night. As I’m standing there with this look of shock on my face he says “I know you don’t like to dance, you aren’t very clean, but we never run out of things to talk about and you always make me laugh. I want to spend the rest of my life rambling on with you”. Then he got down on one knee and said “Miss Doodles, will you marry me?” The emcee came back over just in time to grab the mic so he could open up the ring box and I squeeled YES!
It was amazing, slightly embarrassing and a complete surprise. It was also a little strange when we got recognized later on in the cruise, lol. It was the perfect proposal for us (we met on a dance floor) and the perfect ring and the two of us have been nauseatingly happy ever since.
Now if you’ve made it all the way to the end of my longwinded story, check out some ring porn below. The first pic was taken right after he proposed. The rest were taken on the beach a day later.
