Is it silly to want a "special" proposal?

Not silly at all. My fiancé is reproposing to me today because my original ring doesn’t fit (we’re picking out my new one together). I wanted a special proposal too, but my fiancé said he’d think about it.

  • Wedding: August 2019 - Kelowna, BC, Canada

I THOUGHT I wanted a romantic proposal on top of a mountain (his original plan) or a big party surrounded by friends and family. What happened was he proposed in the middle of opening presents on the couch a few days before christmas. He did get down on one knee though! But I couldnt really tell as he was already kneeling on the floor passing me presents and I was sitting on the couch so we were in fact eye level with each other. Lol..BUT I wouldnt change it for the world! I love that he proposed around the christmas tree (christmas time is special to us) He originally planned to go up a mountain (Sea to Sky Gondola Squamish) SHOUTOUT TO MY VAN SISTERS!tongue-out

But with his graveyard shifts it just didnt happen with our schedules. And we were leaving the next day for Kelowna to visit Family for Christmas so he wanted to do it before then so I could tell them in person the big news!

Nothing wrong with hoping for a big something, as long as you’re okay if it’s casual. I’ve definitely heard of people demanding elaborate proposals or turning down more low-key ones and making them redo it. Yikes. Idk what’s on Instagram as I’ve never been on it, but it sounds stressful.

I knew I would marry him before we even started dating but after a year i got really obsessed with wild YouTube proposals and wanted some elaborate hullabaloo. It’s been 4.5 now and i just want to marry the man i love, that’s all. I told him he could hand me the ring in a drive-thru sticking out of the top bun of a Big Mac for all I care. Would I like him to plan a nice day together with flowers and do a cute proposal? Yeah, of course. But I also like Big Macs, so *shrug*.
