    Definitely a private proposal! It’s really important to me that we just have that moment between the two of us. I know that my guy is pretty shy anyways so I wouldn’t expect him to make a scene of it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Private! I always think public is a bad plan… What if you want to say no??? 

    That and it’s a special moment that should be just between the two of you IMO.

    @beesbelle:  Haha +100

    My answer is in between. I absolutely don’t want a totally public proposal (like at a football game…ugh, the thought makes me sick). But I would love him to incorporate my friends or family into it. So I guess my answer is semi-private, just not around strangers!

    @Serey:  I would want it to be private since it is such a special and intimate moment between SO and I and I would want to share our honest reactions without any outside influence. I think I would be okay if he did it in front of our immediate family as well, but I don’t think he will.

    I’m totally married, but going to answer the question anyway…

    I wanted a public engagement, like I used to dream about him proposing and then having people around us break out in applause…… but I got an awesome private just-us-two engagement in a beautiful museum garden overlooking the NY skyline. So it was all good either way!

    Most definitely private-ie just the two of us!! It wasnt until I came across the bee that I found out that some people get their whole families involved-plus photographers for the question moment, its very sweet but its just not me ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m already married but I informed him that if he ever asked me to marry him that it better be in private.  As it turned out we pretty much made a joint decision to get married so it didn’t matter.  ๐Ÿ™‚

    I voted public, but I really won’t care either way. But knowing my SO, it’s going to be over-the-top – that’s just his personality. I like the idea of public b/c hopefully people will get pictures or video that way!

    Private.  I’m very shy and self-conscious, hate being the center of attention.  If there was a group I would feel awkward and distracted, wouldn’t be able to focus on the moment.  I want that moment to be something that belongs to us, and us alone.

    I know it’s going to happen in the next few months so everytime we see a proposal on tv or a movie I make sure to comment on how I have public proposals so he gets the idea.

    private – I think he would do it this way anyway but he has joked in the past that he’ll propose in disney land with a musical number (he’s got this idea from youtube haha) because it’ll embarrass me!
