Those videos make me horribly uncomfortable. I don't understand people who rank these types of productions as "best proposal evah." It's not a competition.

My husband proposed to me, asked if he should ask my mom "permission" (1. she is a widow and 2. I said no, don't ask permission, for what?). It was a surprise and he did do the traditional stuff--get down on one knee and present a ring--but we had already discussed and agreed upon getting married prior to that.
