: Marriage Proposals
Recently a friend of mine showed me this video and described it as her fantasy/ideal/prefect proposal.
Here is the video:
It's really long, so if you don't want to see it....It's basically a Disney World extravaganza with all the bells, singing, dancing, whistles, lights etc. I actually think it's pretty cool. My friend is a fairy-tale kind of girl, loved Disney Princesses all through high school and such, so this is right up her alley.
Anyway, this made me start thinking of how I would like to be proposed to. I never really thought of it before. (I've thought about my wedding and the a great man of course, but never thought about the proposal).
I think I'd prefer it to be small and simple. Just the two of us. For the most part, I would just want him to speak from his heart. If he were able to plan something that was special/unique to our relationship, that would be great too!
(I remember hearing about a couple the loved playing video games together. The boyfriend was a computer programmer and programmed the game to say something like "Will you marry me?" instead of "You Win!" This wouldn't be a good one for me, but it works because it's special to their relationship)
What I would not like:
No public proposals. To me, it's not intimate enough and what if I want to say "No"....awkward!
After thinking about it for a while, in that moment I don't want to care what the proposal is like, I just want to be overwhelmed with the joy of marrying someone I love and starting a life together. So, even though I don't want a public proposal, I wouldn't get huffy about it. I'd be too happy (ideally).
Getting to the point....
What would be your dream proposal?
Do you need tradition (asking the father, getting down on one knee, etc)?
If you are engaged/married how were you proposed to? Share your cute/funny/embarrassing stories!
Any ladies here do any of the proposing themselves? Is anyone opposed to doing the asking?
Anyone turned down a proposal?
