- Wedding: May 2015
Hi everybody! First time posting, but I’ve been lurking as I planned the proposal. 🙂
So this past weekend I proposed to my girlfriend in spectacular fashion and she said yes! Many thanks to the hundreds of bees who put up real pictures of rings and stories of engagements – extremely helpful in making some of those impossible decisions.
I met my now fiance doing local theater productions, so I proposed to her on stage, after a performance in which she was the star. Her mother, father, sister, grandmother, cousin and aunt were in the second row, my mother right behind them and my father onstage with us in the cast! Everyone was completely surprised, except her father, who I asked during intermission. I interrupted the bows (a standing ovation), gave a heartfelt speech while accompanied by a string orchestra, then asked her the question to thunderous applause. After a yes, a kiss, and the ring, I carried her off stage into the rest of our lives together.
Well, since then I have been informed that this was the most incredible romantic thing and that we should capitalize on this. It was captured on video and photo (had a photographer stashed in row 1).
So my question is this: do you bees know of any proposal contests that we should enter? A quick google search turned several up but they are all exclusive and I don’t want to enter one and then find out that some superior annual contest would come up and then we wouldn’t be able to enter.
Thanks for your help! You’ll be seeing more of us around here in the next year+. 🙂
