So this weekend I am meeting my girlfriends brother for a drink where I will be asking for his blessing. If he says yes, we’ll both then go to his mtoher and ask her blessing too. My girlfriends father died when she was young so herelder brother ie very much the head of the family alongside the mother. Just need their blessing!
At first I thought I wanted to so some elaborate big proposal, but I think I’ve come to realise that I can do the big dinner for her anytime, and we can go off camping together anytime – proposals happen only once so I best make it a good one and better make it personal to us.
I’m really liking the idea of something small and sweet, but meaningful and was thinking about this…
My partner and I love a bit of good baking and pastries. We have a whole thing about it. Our first ever date, we had carrot cake together by a lake. Our second date, we went to an amazing pattiserie and had florentines and merangues. Third date, giant Macaroons!! And from then on in, whenever we fancy a treat, we go in to London and find a nice bakery and have ourselves some sugar.
I was thinking of picking a bakery, one we both like and asking them if they’d work with me on the proposal. I’ve seen this ring box…
And am wondering if I could put the ring in the box, then go in before hand and tell the staff that no matter what my girlriend orders to put my engagement box shaped like a macaroon on the plate too.
Thoughts? Is it too sweet?

Super cute. Proposals that are so personal to the couple are the best kind.

I love it!!!
I thought my husband was going to do the BIG extravagant proposal in which I would see it coming…BUT as circumstances surrounding the ring changed so did his proposal. It ended up being on a bench at a lake where he worked with the jewellers (since this was in a resport town we didn’t live in) to have hot chocolates (our first date activity), roses and the ring wrapped waiting for us on the bench. It was completely unexpected, sweet and meaningful! I really appreciate the simplicity and the fact that I didn’t see it coming. We got to enjoy the view on the deserted beach with our hot chocolates….PERFECTION!
Good luck and CONGRATS in advance.

Thanks everyone for kind words and best wishes. I’m glad its not too cheesey an idea. Think the best bit is you think of a proposal being down on one knee and then the box comes out and all that. She’ll have no idea until she spots the macaroon box on the plate.
Hoping her brother says yes – can’t see why he wont as we have a really good relationship. He’ll help me with her Mum too as she is deaf and although I can sign I’m not fluent and he is.
I wasn’t going to propose until January on her birthday but she did something for me recently, and wont go in to details as very personal, but basically she put an end to a massive problem in my life that was stressing me out to no end. Think I realised I dont want to wait to propose and that all things going to plan, I’ll probably propose early December 🙂
