- Wedding: January 2020 - Germany
Hi Bees, been looking round these forums since getting engaged, enjoying all the pictures of your beautiful rings and I really wanted to share my own story 🙂
My finance (!) is German, I’m English and we live in Germany. We’ve been talking about marriage for a while (been together 2.5 years) but he said he’d probably wait another year or so to propose which seemed reasonable to me. We flew to England last week to spend a few days at my family home for an early Christmas (I’m talking full on dinner, presents, basically Christmas day done early).
While there, before dinner on the main day of our celebrations he asked if we could go into the garden. I said sure. Now, I’d had a shower about an hour before and had my hair up in a green towel festively decoration with tinsel…even a fake robin perched on top. Me to myself “do i need to brush my hair before I go outside? Nah I’m only walking round the garden”. You can see where this is going…
He tells me he’s got an early Christmas present for me and pulls out a ring box, opens it to a beautiful ring, gets down on one knee and asks me to marry him. I was extremely surprised, but ecstatic of course, and also aware I had a robin on my head…We go back inside and celebrate with my family and the day was perfect. Definitely a proposal to remember!
