- Wedding: July 2011
Well I’ve been lurking on the boards since March, and have finally started posting. I’ve been waiting for a proposal for a while now, as we’ve been together 5 years, own a home together and are both quite settled in our jobs. Back in March I found this website as I was certain he was going to propose on our trip to Las Vegas. Much to my sadness, he did not… although reading posts from other bees here who were also waiting, helped to get me through that period!
Anyways, back on July 6th, my boyfriend (at the time) and I were enjoying a nice, relaxing week up at the cottage. We spent a beautiful day golfing at our favourite golf course. As we pulled up to the 18th hole, I noticed something sitting beside the pin. As we got closer, I could tell it was a little box. We approached the hole, and he picked up the ring box and began to propose. I was in shock, partly because he was golfing so well I never imagined that he would be proposing that day! He had written a poem for the proposal, but deviated from it during the actual moment. He got down on one knee, and of course I said yes. People who were eating lunch at the clubhouse over-looking the 18th hole, stood up and clapped and the staff brought us down champagne. He had given the staff members the ring to place on the green earlier that day without me catching on!
The funniest part was that within minutes of it happening, the wedding coordinator of the club ran down to us with brochures as they “put on lovely weddings here!”.
At any rate, it was a wonderful moment for both of us, and in the 3 weeks since we have already set the date and picked our venue!
I just thought I’d share my story since I imagine in the next year I will be using these boards a lot to help plan the big day! Thank you to everyone who has helped me get through the last few months of ‘waiting’. Although I only just started posting, I have been reading for awhile, and I appreciate all the advice that is given on these boards.
