andthen:  just like you’re fiancé, I was never the romantic type or was dreaming of a huge attention grabbing proposal. To be honest, I expected my husband to propose while we are just in bed watching tv and eating snacks (my favorite time of the day lol). 

My husband and were away from eachother for a while, so we thought we’d make a reservation at space needle when I arrive, just because. Well, with the traffic and closed roads etc. We were late and my husband had to call them and let them know. We thought they were going to cancel the reservation for us, so I told my husband that we can just eat anywhere, like at a fast food or something lol, and he got a little frustrated and was like “no, we made a reservation”, I was like ok. Didn’t know he was going to propose haha.

I think your girl will be just as happy if you proposed in bed if she’s like me. I love proposals that aren’t traditional. My husband was also behind me and put his arms around me instead of getting on his knees when he proposed, and I loved it! But then again, as some PPs have mentioned, there are a lot of women out here who seem to have an awesome man, but complaining about not having the perfect proposal! Your girl seems to be awesome though, and I suggest you relax and maybe make it a little funny and unique ;). Good luck!

The ring is STUNNING!! I didn’t read through all the comments, but I say, just roll over and propose!!!

My fiance had this whole “plan” at our favorite restaurant, but THANKFULLY couldn’t wait…LOL…I am NOT a public person at ALL and would not have been comfortable..it actually would have taken something out of the proposal had he done that…he did it at home, just the two of us and I LOVED everything about it!!

Congrats to both of you!! πŸ™‚

andthen:  I was proposed to in the kitchen at 2am.. And we have been living together for 5 years, i was still crying my eyes out. Your words for the proposal being heartfelt is the most important part. I wouldn’t have changed anything about the way my fi proposed! Go ahead and roll over in bed, but say something meaningful and she will remember it for the rest of her life!

It’s gorgeous!  I was proposed to randomly one morning in my living room in front of our christmas tree. He was excited and slept with it in his pocket all night waiting for me to wake up. It was perfect and amazing. I was so suprised. You don’t have to wait, just sayin’… πŸ˜‰

andthen: beautiful ring πŸ™‚ my friend got one JUST LIKE IT ^_^ What is stopping you from proposing? Did you have a specific date? My Fiance proposed to me when we were on our vacation… we actually went to LA for his cousins wedding first and he had hid the ring box in the back of the hotel safe (i totally didn’t know that). Then we flew to Bora Bora and he was very uneasy all day….he proposed to me the first day we were there during sunset at the dock… he got the resort butler to take photos for us and he set up our drone and go pro to record everything. πŸ˜› It was really really sweet and only the butler and another couple saw it happen. I literally felt like it was a dream. lol. πŸ™‚
