mine isn't what you would call romantic I'm sure. I was in the spare room doing my homework, my my FH called for me three times. By the forth, I got mad and stormed into the living room to ask what he wanted. He was there on bended knee, holding the ring. I didn't pick out my ring, he picked it out.

We were out w/ our friends and the topic came as to what you call your "boyfriend" when you've been together for 7 years.  We were debating if partner was the right word.  Somehow this bothered him and when we got home he said he thought that we should get married and I could then call him fiance!

He did not choose my ring.  I designed it and had it made by a jeweler in NYC.

FH and I have been together for 6 years, and always talked about getting married.  Just this year, things seemed to start falling into place, to make it the right time.  I still didn't have any clue it was comming though.  I just knew we were saving for the ring.  I had two options for when I "thought" he might propose.  The first being our 6 year anniversery, the second, on the cruise we are going on in a week.  Well needless to say, the anniversary passed, and no ring.  The night before though, he had told me he wanted to go hiking the next day.  I didn't think anything of this, because we had gone hiking after work many times before.  He said this time he wanted to go to the top.  Well dumb me, thinking it was just a normal days hike, decided we didn't have time to make it to the top, and back down before sundset.  So he said that he wanted to show me a place he had found, just over a rock.  So we climbed over, climbed up another rock, back down.  Then we were standing ther, looking over the east valley of Phoenix, AZ and I looked out, then saw him move, turned around, and he was down on one knee.  Just like him, he kept it short and sweet, with a simple "Will you marry me".  My first reaction was "are you serious."  Since it was the day after our anniversary, I had NO idea it was comming.  He did such a great job.  And I couldn't have asked for a better place.Laughing

He chose my first engagement ring..  But the band that came it was too thin to be resized or noticed. We picked out a 3 pc set (e ring, band and his band) together. My first e ring will be resized to fit another hand.. 

How he proposed :)

 

On Christmas Eve I had to work. James decided to go back to Coffeyville, KS (1 hr, 15 minute drive from Disney, Ok where we both live now) to finish cleaning out the house. Donna was anxious to move in.

I thought no big deal.. I have to work and he promised to be home so we could have dinner with my family that night and open one gift at their house, then later one at home.

After we did the dinner thing and opened one joke gift at my parents house. We went back to our place. I was working on unpacking the stuff he brought back with him.

Eventually he asked me I could stop so we could open one gift from each other.

I gave him the first gift.. He recieved a couch blanket with his name embrodiered on it. He loved it

I got the next gift.. He told me to sit on the couch and close my eyes and stick out my hand. (I had NO CLUE). He stuck something in my hand and told me to open my eyes. There was 46¢ and some lint. He laughed and said he thought he could do better than that. So once again I was instructed to close my eyes and stick out my hand. This time when I opened my eyes there was my engagement ring. He said I didn't have to say YES.. I said "I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you" .. He asked if that was a YES and I said YES .

My FH and I have been together for about 5 years. He always said that he wanted to wait until we were out of school to get engaged and I was totally cool with that. But, I was not expecting it on the DAY I graduated. It was actually really cool. He originally planned on asking me up at Lake Tahoe (because we were going there the week after I graduated) but he changed his mind because he knew that I would want my family there (which every single one of them were....about 50 people to be exact). We are both very family oriented and I am so happy that our families got to experience the joy with us. Only a few people knew it was going to happen.....and I was definitely NOT one of them. I honestly had just decided that we were going to live together forever and get married whenever we had the time. So, yeah.....I was definitely suprised when he asked me. And I would not had our engagement any other way!

It depends on who you ask.

I told my H2B that I did not want a preposal before we both finished our exams.  During the winter break he told me to have my fingure sized and he took his father with him when he went looking for a ring.  Then the day before Easter he said "Let's exchange Easter candy tomorrow, spend no more than 20 dollars" so I bought a box from a local candy maker and forgot the entire thing.  The next moring he knocked on my door with a large basket of plastic eggs and malt balls, a balloon, and something in a brown paper bag.  We sat on the couch and I handed him his candy and I opened an egg.  He then told me to open the blue one and as I did he turned around and pulled out a cookie cake that said "will you marry me?" and I found the ring wrapped up in tissues in the egg.  The only thing that I could say besides yes is that he spent more than the $20 limit.  We then told only our closest friends from college.

Two months later I took the ring off for a few days because my family was coming up for my graduation.  My father came up a day early and as my FH was driving him to the hotel he asked him for his permision to marry me.  As soon as he dropped him off we went out for ice cream at the Creamery (old school tradition) and he "asked" me again.  (Then I got to wear the ring and the graduation dinner that had been planned for the next day with both families became an engagement dinner.)


Which one works?????

My story is romantic and uproaringly funny all at the same time. My fiance and I had gone camping with several of our friends, on a riverbank, about 500 yards behind a convenience store. (You couldn't see the convenience store for all the trees, though.) Well, we're out there fishing and talking and drinking a few beers. We're all relaxed and having a good time when all of a sudden the store's alarm starts going off! So the police come down to our campsite and take breathalizers from all of us. My fiance and one of our friends gets arrested! (My fiance was charged with Public Intoxication, thankfully just a misdameanor, which was later dropped when he went to trial for it.) The police tell me that I should follow them to the magistrates office in case the guys were released that night. So, of course I went.

 

After bailing my fiance and his friend out of jail, we return to the campsite a little shaken. Everyone eventually heads to bed, and my fiance and I are the only ones left awake. We're listening to the Red Hot Chili Peppers and sitting by the campfire when he asks me to get another beer for him. As I walked back to the campfire, he is down on one knee. He asked me to marry him under the stars, with the campfire burning, the sound of the rushing river, and of course the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I guess he figured that if I'm going to stick around after bailing him out of jail, I just might be "the one" for him!

 

He hadn't yet bought a ring for me. But that was fine with me. My mother was killed in a car accident 10 years ago, and she had a beautiful round cut diamond solitaire ring that I wanted to wear as my engagement ring. I love that ring. It symbolizes so much for me! It's a sign of commitment of mine and my fiance's relationship, and it's a wonderful reminder of my mother. A little piece of her that is with me all the time. It's the perfect way to have her with me on my wedding day when she can't be there in person!

Well my story is simple. My FH and I have been together for 8 years. He has been married before, but I have not. We have been back and forth on this subject for the last 3 years.I was never the type to dream of being married as most of my married friends are not happy. We had attended several weddings over the years, but never seemed to be affected by matrimony. Well up until about a month ago, we went to his niece's wedding. All anybody in his family could talk about was when will that be us? I gave my usual answer; 'when we feel that it is time for us...' He said nothing. So a week or so goes by and he asked one night while we were getting ready for bed, 'Why are we putting it off?' I said "there is no pressure it will happen when the time is right." Well needless to say, this sparked something. WE go to bed normally, he falls asleep first, then about 4 or 5 a.m. He gets up to go to the bathroom and comes back and wakes me up. I really got angry because I hate for anyone to wake me up, so after saying my name a few times, I get up yelling what do you want. He kneels on the side of the bed and says: "I see no reason to wait any longer, I love you and I wouldn't want to be on this earth without you, so Will you please marry me and not cuss me out for waking you up? I was so stunned I just sat there staring at him for a minute. I asked if he was fully awake and aware of what he was saying, and his response was I've known I wanted to marry you since the first day we met. So I said yes with a face full of tears and he kissed me and got back in bed and went to sleep. I was up for the rest of the night smiling and waiting for 8 a.m. to call my mother. It's a night I will never forget and I can't ever get mad at him for waking me up again.

 We have been together for 6 years. He has always said he never wanted to get re-married. He has been married before but I never have. Our family and friends had been bugging him about popping the question. He kept saying No, No, No. I knew he would eventually do it but I was not expecting it at all when it happened.

We had gone on vacation to Italy. We had been to Rome, Florence and the last city was Venice. The trip had been kind of stressful and we had been bickering alot during most of the trip. By the time we had gotten to Venice we had just decided to relax and just enjoy our last couple of days. That first nite in Venice we had gone to a very nice dinner and then took a stroll to St. Marks Square. I was feeling kind of tired so I suggested we just go back to the hotel and call it a night. He suggested taking a Gondola ride first. That seemed relaxing and I wanted to make sure we did it on our trip so I agreed.  As we strolled the canals of Venice in the Gondola he started telling me how much he loved me and was just beng sweet. Well at least thats what I thought was happening. Just him being romantic but then he got on his knee, pulled out a beautiful 1 1/2 carat solitare ring and asked me to marry him. I was so shocked and surprised that I cant remember a whole lot of what he said. Of course, I said yes. The gondola driver was really cool and took us for an longer ride. Needless to say, the rest of the trip was awesome. I could hardly sleep that first night, I was sooo excited. The hardest part was waiting 2 more days until we got home to tell our family and friends but I wanted to tell them in person.

I think I was more surprised he had a ring. I kept asking him when he got it. We live together and have all our finances togther so I couldnt believe he had gotten a ring without me knowing.  He got it the day before we left for our trip and had it in his suitcase the entire trip.

 I waited 6 years for this proposal and it was so romantic that it was definitley worth the wait. We will be getting married 7/28/2007 and I can hardly wait!!

After dinner he took me to this park downtown. We sat out by the pond. He had brought along a guitar (which I had no idea he played). He had written a song about us and the last line was, "Will you marry me?" It was so romantic. I cried and immediatly said YES!


Wedding Date: March 3, 2007

Heh, I actually wrote this as a paper so I'm just gonna post that. It's the best version without me laughing and screwing it up.

When I was proposed to, it became one of the more humorous events in my life and remains in the forefront of my mind even now. My seventeenth birthday was drawing close and I was eager to see what my boyfriend would present to me.

This would be the first time in my life that I would be with someone on my birthday or even just near the holidays. In preparation for my special birthday I had gone shopping that previous weekend so I would be dressed up from head to toe.

I awoke at seven in the morning on December 22, 2003, groggy and rather agitated toward my alarm clock. I managed to stumble down to the bathroom and climb into the shower so that I could wake up more fully. I wielded my razor like a pro, finishing up my shower in under a half hour. I emerged fully awake and ready to greet my boyfriend Casey at nine in the morning. Instead of sitting about in my nice clothes for the entire day, I shrugged into some ‘kicking around the house’ clothes and settled down to watch the television. Casey arrived at nine, dressed in casual clothes as well, making me happy that he didn’t dress up.

From nine until noon we watched television and discussed our plans for my birthday. He kept alluding to a surprise and then going off to distract me with tidbits of food. I suggested that I could drive us to the restaurant he chose after we dropped off a few things to a close friend of mine. Agreeing, we tugged on our nice clothes in separate rooms before proceeding out into the crisp air around three in the afternoon. Naturally at this time of year there was traffic on the roads making me complain and swear a blue streak the entire way to the library. Within the library we sat and made small talk with my friend until dusk settled over the city like a blanket. That was our cue to hot tail it over to the restaurant where Casey promised he had made reservations.
   
I drove us down to Rizzos, which lies adjacent from Ted Drews, pulling into the nearly empty parking lot. Darkness had fallen and yet there were no people milling about the small Italian restaurant. Wary and just a little peeved we clambered out of the van and walked up to the door. There in black type on bright white paper were words that made my anger shoot up and my feet go stamping about in the new heels. ‘Rizzos closed on Mondays, sorry for the inconvenience.’ We climbed back into the van, pulling into a parking lot across from the restaurant.

Now we needed to find another restaurant where we could eat for cheap. The list went on and on, from Rigazzi’s to Fazoli’s, to the Olive Garden, and even on down to IHOP. An hour went by and still we argued in light tones, rejecting places for being too expensive, too casual, or in one case, too corporate. With a pout I suggested that we just stop by White Castles and go eat in a park because for once, my birthday was mild enough for such a thing. Casey’s face fell a little at my suggestion of fast food but he agreed to the picnic.

Our first stop was my house for a few blankets while Casey relayed our plans to my parents and swore that yes I had my phone and yes I would keep it on. The blankets were piled into the back of the van and then onto White Castles we went. It was strange enough to walk into the place dressed in nice clothes and even stranger to walk out with the many bags and drinks to the van. It was a quick drive to the park near my grandfathers, where amazingly enough it began to sprinkle, drizzle, and then rain. A clear sky a moment ago and now just as we parked, it was raining.

Another blue streak of swearing from me as we tacked the blankets up on the windows to block out the harsh streetlight and to keep our body warmth inside. We made casual talk as we ate, the smell of White Castles permeating the air and drawing us happily into the embrace of the tiny hamburgers. Grinning fit to split his face, Casey leaned back and spoke of how since this entire day is going wrong, could he ask me a question. I could only smirk and pop a bite of the hamburger into my mouth, eyes rolling as I anticipated a joking question about dollars.

His right hand slid into his coat, pulling out a tiny white box while his other hand cracked open the lid. With that chewed piece of burger and bun frozen on my tongue, he smiled and asked if I would marry him, presenting the tiny ring with its large sapphire. Choking and sputtering I muttered that he was joking right? Looking back over at his serene smile and that ring I knew he wasn’t, managing to choke down the burger and swear that he had to be kidding even as that ring stared me in the face. Grinning still he slid the ring box shut, babbling on about how that was a no answer. With tears leaking from my eyes I yelled that if he thought that was a no answer then he was insane before I launched myself into his lips.

Ever since we celebrate over white castles and on July 28, 2007 (four year of going out) we will finally be wed. Then that december when I turn 21, four years since white castles.

I will have such a thing at the reception. - White castles proposal...the best I could ever have even if it did come wrapped up in a blue and white box stinking of onions.


Apparently the wedding is drawing near...hmm...maybe I should think about it. Nah, I want a muffin. Yup, muffins.

 July 28, 2007...four years since he asked me out in a one month relationship and I said...hmm, okay sure.

Well my baby took me to the African American museum in Philadelphia. It was a complete surprise because we'd been talking about it, but he made it clear to me that it wouldn't happen for a while because the kind of ring he would get me cost a pretty penny. I wasn't stressing it, or thinking about it because i've never been the type of female who dreamed about my wedding day etc. I just figured if it happened great, if not, well i'll have a great career and I can date! In any case, i'd been saying I wanted to go to the African American museum for years now, and we'd never been. So he took me that saturday and we walked all over the museum, examining the artifats etc. When we got to the first floor, he started telling me how much he loved me etc, still I ddidn't think anything. Next thing I knew, he's talking to me, while getting on his knees and presents me with a beautiful custom made princess cut ring. To my friend's surprise when I told them this story, I started crying and shaking (am usually so composed). It was absolutely a beautiful moment and a shock. Immediately I started calling all my friends and my mom, and I started wedding talk ASAP. I really can't wait until that day now. It's still hard to believe that am the first of my friends to get married, when we were all sure that i'd be one of the last (though FH and I have been dating for almost 6 years now). OK, I know this was long, but am excited, and happy that it has happened for me.

My fiance proposed on Christmas morning of 2006!

we have know children yet so the first thing I do on christmas moring is play santa Claus to my nieces and nephews by coming to their houses with gifts!! As I was getting ready to pack up the car and leave my fiance calls me and tells me to come over to his house. I was kind of fustrated because he knows my ritual on christmas and since we spent the entire christmas eve together I not did understand the urgency to see me. So I go to this house and he has lots of family members over at 8:00am which was strange to me. So he sits me down and gets on one knee and say that I mean the world to him and he can't imagne being without me and ask me to be his wife. It was sooo sweet and I know how much his family means to him so it was important to propose in front of them. I can still remember seeing him go into his pocket for the ring and my heart beating fast. It was soo romantic!!

I need to give some background.I have known my finance for 22 years. We dated in high school when I was 15 and he was 16. After we broke up a few months later, we became very best friends and share everthing in our lives with each other. After knowning each other 17 years, we started dating again. 

My finance proposed on the 22 anniversary of our first kiss at the Spring Dance, May 4th. He took me out to dinner downtown at our favorite italian restaurant. When he started driving the wrong way way home, I became irritated because I was tired. He said he needed to stop somewhere. At 10pm at night, he drove me back to the high school we both graduated from. We walked for awhile and he got on one knee and proposed. It could not have been more special.
