Hello Everyone!

I purchased my ring from GOG based on awesome advice I received here.

Sorry, this video is half English and half Spanish.

Basically made her believe we were flying down to DR to have dental work because we are from there and it's significantly cheaper.

My cousin has a dental clinic and I had my fiance drop me off to get my procedure (implant). She had a nurse come out and get me with a chart in hand. I had my dad show up at the clinic and and asked my fiance to please go and have fun with her family.

Since I planned this well ahead of time, I had her friends plan a girls night out since I would be "recovering" :D

I even called her sounding sedated when a couple of hours had passed.

At the restaurant, I had a projector set up and she was told it was for some promotion deal. The projector displayed some test about love and then a huge picture of us. Followed by more pics and a clip of me asking her dad for her hand in marriage. Her mom was traveling and I asked her to send a clip in which she also gave me her blessing. The rest is self explanatory ;-)\

My now-fiance proposed almost a month ago and we couldn't be happier! Initially I had wanted to wait until I graduated college to get engaged (I'm a senior) but we realized that waiting for an arbitrary milestone was exactly that- arbitrary! We were in love and ready for the future so we decided to go for it :-) So I told him that I'm ready to be his fiancee and we talked a lot about rings and our future and when/where we would hold our wedding.

After being in different countries for over three months, the day finally came that I got to see my then-boyfriend again. I knew he had the ring with him but I didn't know when he would pop the question! He had just gotten the ring in the mail before driving six hours to my house and hadn't seen it in good light yet, so he went into my kitchen to examine the ring. After, we decided he could try the ring on my right hand with my eyes closed to make sure it was perfect (and we were just so excited). After he put it on my right hand he said it looked great and then told me to keep my eyes shut while he put the ring away. When he told me I could open my eyes, he was down on one knee with the ring and said, "Will you marry me, Honey?"

It was the perfect proposal for us :-) We are both so happy to start the next step of our lives together :-)

My fiancé proposed on Saturday 23rd April, we've been together for 5 years and 4 months.
We have been living together for 5 years. He is wonderful :love:

I thought he was going to propose 2 years ago when we visited NYC. We went up the Rockefeller Center & he wanted to wait for the sun to go down. We were hanging around for ages, I thought he was waiting for a magical moment to pop the question.
He just wanted to take some panoramic photos.
He took me for a helicopter ride, I posted about it on facebook and loads of my friends got excited because they were sure it was going to happen then.

And then I thought he was going to propose last year when we went back. Perhaps when we went up the Empire State Building.
But he didn't :tongue:
He said he couldn't afford a ring at the time, but we have been discussing marriage for quite some time now so in my mind we were semi-engaged anyway.

It's my 2nd engagement/marriage and his first. He knew I wanted a coloured stone because my first was an 0.24 carat diamond solitaire (platinum band). It was pretty small! But this was 2004 and my ex and I were quite young. So for this ring I'd been looking at sapphires for quite some time. We'd had a look at the high street, I'd been pinning like mad (pinterest). We'd seen some pre-loved rings at an independent jewellers near where we live and he'd started looking at auctions as well. He asked me if I'd mind having a second hand ring.

Then leap year came along and I proposed to him! He said yes but he was "annoyed" that I did it first because he wanted to propose to me. So we were only semi-engaged. (although I thought we were engaged in all but the ring for ages since we've been discussing marriage for years).
In the Easter school holidays, we visited Worcester (UK) with his mum (who was visiting from the North) and on our way to the cathedral we looked in the window of an antique shop.
We saw it, I loved it. :love: :love: We visited the cathedral and all I wanted to do was go back to the antique shop. :dance:
Afterwards when we did go back he went inside to ask about it, and I got to look at it and try it on.
He said it was a little over budget and he'd have to save up.

I thought that would be the last I saw of it ;(
But last week he woke me up with breakfast in bed, and my ring attached to a poem inside my teacup (which had no tea in it thankfully).
:love: :love: :love:

No mention of setting a date yet, I'm hoping it will be within the next 2 years, or sooner. :) (We're both 37 so I don't want to be too old in my wedding photos!) ;))

Create a "Proposal Bear". With hundreds of Build-A-Bear Workshops around, getting a hold of one won't be hard. Stop by your local Build-A-Bear and pick out a bear. Before stuffing the bear you will be given the option to insert a message box. Select a personal message box and record your proposal. Place the box inside of the bear and then continue the process of it. Once your bear is created you can dress it how ever you would like to but keep in mine they do have wedding dresses and tuxedoes. This way you will have a romantic proposal along with a keepsake!


If you and your mate like to sing then go out to karaoke night and sing her a romantic love song. At the end of the song propose to her. Not only will it be romantic but it will be in front of all those people. How could she resist?


Find yourself some glowing stickers, stars, or paint. Write your proposal message where ever you plan to be that night. For instance if you are having a romantic dinner a home, simply write the proposal above the bed on her ceiling. Stand out side her door and wait with the ring. Once she turns the lights off it will be moments before she comes to find you. If you are camping write them in the woods on a trail. Take her for a nice walk and stop near the spot of your proposal. Slowly point her attention that way! She will be left glowing with love!

Through email

Mail her a romantic poem from Shakespeare or Browning. Include a photo of yourself on your knees with a diamond in your hand, and write on the back in marker, "Will you marry me?" Be ready, hiding outside her house when she normally opens her mail, and go inside with the diamond in hand when you hear her scream with joy.

String attached-

. Take the engagement ring and tie a thread to it. Tie the other end of the thread around your finger. Tell your partner, "I have a present for you, but there's a string attached."

Past, present and future..
During a special evening, present your love with three roses: Tell her one represents the past, one represents the present, and the last one (with the ring tied to it) represents the future

My story is not as romantic as a lot of other stories out there, but it certainly is unique. I come from a big family. I have seven older sisters and they were all married before me. When the last one got married, when it came time to throw the bouquet, she stood up, walked over to where I was sitting and handed me the flowers and said, "You're next!"

Just like that, my boyfriend went down on one knee and proposed to me in front of everyone. To this day, they both insist that they didn't plan that, but I have my doubts. I said yes, and the next year we were married.

Written by Nashville » July 12th, 2010, 8:21 pm:I woke up one morning, my now husband was still asleep. I staggered downstairs and into the bathroom to brush my teeth and wash my face. So I'm brushing away and humming, when I glance in the mirror and notice a diamond on my left hand that I KNOW wasn't there when I fell asleep.

I ran upstairs and said "HEY!" and he woke up with a start. I was shaking and going "What's this?" He was all sleep disoriented haha and I was frantic.

He told me to come sit by the bed and said. "Good morning, darling. I love you. You are the woman I want to see next to me every morning when I wake up. Will you marry me?"

Then we had a celebratory breakfast at our favorite diner. It was low key and special.

I would have had a panic attack. That is sooo sweet!!!!!!!!!!!!
