How did he ask?


Leo Espinosa/BRIDES

One of my favorite proposal stories includes a groom who wrote "Will You Marry Me?" in the sand, and then hired a helicopter to fly his girlfriend over the beach. Love it! Then I heard that some hotels are now offering this as part of a "proposal package"—hotel staffers write the message, and the couple whirs by overhead. The surprise is still there, but somehow I feel the specialness is compromised—just how many "Marry Me" messages are you going to be flying over? What about your proposal? Did your guy do something outrageous? Romantic? Unique? Tell all! —Jackie, BRIDES magazine
