Does it feel like everyone and their mother got engaged in the past month? You're not alone! Whether or not you yourself received a brand-spankin'-new engagement ring recently, the numbers don't lie — 19 percent of brides polled in our 2014 BRIDES American Weddings Study got engaged in December. Since we love hearing proposal stories all seasons of the year, we asked our readers to share how their guy popped the question — in 140 characters or less! These Twitter-friendly stories are so cute and romantic, we had to share some of our favorites here:
