  • poll: What kind of proposal would be perfect for you?

    Oh yeah I want fireworks, a flash mob and a puppy!

    my SO can ask me in our kitchen or something big it doesnt matter to me.

    I would like something quiet with just the two of us.

    I would love having a lot of people involved!

    As long as it isnt in my food/ drink.

    I dont need a proposal.

    As long as it isnt at a baseball game on the big screen, Eeek!

    Proposal didn’t matter to me. I never imagined getting married so I never dreamed of a proposal. We had a quiet proposal over dinner in a restaraunt that was special to us. It was beyond perfect.

    I couldn’t care less about the proposal. The whole idea of getting married was very significant to me, but I didn’t care about how he aked me to marry him.

    My Fiance proposed in our living room while I was in my PJ’s, and I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed. I had kind of wanted him to put more thought into it. Definitely not a flash mob or anything like that, but I was hoping that he would do SOME planning. He said he couldn’t figure out a way to do something more elaborate without me figuring out what’s going on, which I sort of understand. Even though I was a little bummed, I got over it because I was still ecstatic about being engaged, and he was able to completely surprise me which I think is a major accomplishment in itself!

    If we’re all being honest, I used to have dreams of something really surprising and clever, but the closer it gets the more I’ve realized it really isnt all that important HOW he does it.

    That being said: he is bound and determined to surprise me and, quote, “blow my mind.”

    I have no idea what that entails, but I’d say yes in the parking lot of Wal-Mart at this point.

    I want something thoughtful.  It doesn’t matter if it’s just the two of us or whether it’s on the big screen at a baseball game.  We both love baseball so that would actually be kind of cool to me.  I just hope he puts a little bit of thought into it.  And I would really like to not be in my PJs at home!

    My Fi had planned this big romantic proposal for right after he graduated college – Him proposing under the street lamp where we had our first kiss and big fancy dinner with our closest friends… and then i told him i was pregnant…

    He rushed to push the plan up by 5 months, had everything set to happen 2 days after christmas. He would pick me up from travelling back from my family’s, tell me we had dinner plans with said friends, then take me to the street light instead. it was winter break so the campus would be quiet, there was snow, it was the holidays – extremely romantic!

    Then the day before a foot of snow hit my moms. i told him i would be delayed another day. Poor Fiance rushed again to move everything back a day. Then while driving out to meet up with me he was delay by 2 separate accidents on the turnpike! it took 3 hours longer for us to get home, and everything was called off. He was going to just go back to the original plan, but then at 4 AM on 12/31 he decided he couldnt wait any longer, woke me up from a deep sleep and stammered out a proposal. 

    It was cute. it was very sweet and very us. We’ve never been big, showy people, and the best moments in our lives together have always been completely spontaneous. I wouldnt change it at all Smile (well except maybe not waiting 3 more months for my ring…)

    I want a romantic gesture, but private. It’d be nice if he put some effort in, planning something special but I want it to be just us (no flash mobs or anything).

    I akways wanted the twinkle lights and the hidden photographer and all that good stuff. Eventually I realized that I was planning my own proposal and being crazy. I kept finding out about all his surprise plans, too. So we mutually decided to pick a day to spend all day doing things that we love together and get engaged that day! It should be sometime this week. Very excited!!

    I really don’t care, but I do sort of want it to be just the two of us.  It could be right on his couch or my couch.  It could be as we’re waking up or going to bed.  I don’t care as long as it’s a quiet and private thing.  Of course, immediately after it, I will be calling my family and close friends to let them know!

    We picked out my ring together, he’s making payments on it now and it will be paid off in a few weeks. He loves surprises so he still wants to take me out for a day/overnight trip somewhere and propose to me then. I love that he wants to do that 🙂

    I just want it to be intimate. I dont care where it is, I just want him to be able to say anything that he wants to say without feeling there are “too many people around”. I also would like a private propsal so I can make my ugly cry face and not feel ashamed 🙂

    I really just want a proposal, so I shouldn’t care how it happens… but there’s still a part of me which would be disappointed if he didn’t make an effort. And I know he won’t make an effort, because he isn’t the type, so there’s already a small part of me which feels disappointed in advance. 

    My biggest fear is that he’ll do something non-private and totally embarrassing, like proposing in front of his mom. She’s already a bit clingy and interfering, and a proposal is something that’s just for the two of us, not for her. I’d feel so uncomfortable and unable to express anything if she was watching… I’d probably ruin the proposal by stopping him and saying ‘Can we talk about this later in private?’

    It was the night before my birthday, and he took me out to dinner. Back at my apartment, he had roses and champagne. I knew something was up and this was probably going to be the night.

    After having champagne, he waited until the clock struck midnight, brought out some gift boxes and proposed. It was very sweet, simple, personal and private with no fanfare, just what I would have wanted.

    It was such an intimate moment between us, I really would not have wanted him to do it in front of other people and especially not strangers.
