These are all so sweet! I loved reading through this thread :)

Mine was pretty traditional but so perfect for me. We always celebrate our anniversary by going out to a fancy restaurant, but usually we pick the location together and we choose whatever is hip and on trend that we usually can't afford otherwise lol. This year he was very secretive about the location and he took me to a place that was old school but very romantic (One if By Land, Two if By Sea, if you live in NYC).

The whole meal he was distracted and kept going up to go to the bathroom, so I thought he wasn't feeling well. By the time dessert comes he's super quiet, and I'm busy blabbering about how good the food was lol. Then the waiter comes over with a domed serving platter, and my fiance` starts to get on one knee. But before he could say anything, the waiter kinda messed up and took the cover off the server, showing me the ring on a bed of white rose petals. And I immediately start crying and saying yes, so my fiance` wasn't really able to say the speech he wanted to say or even really "officially" propose!

The best part was, he had my best friends, mom, and sister all waiting at a nearby champagne bar to celebrate, which was so thoughtful and considerate and of course we were able to party all night in celebration. Best night of my life so far :)

We were at an EDM music festival and it was during the day and we were around the vending tents. A lot of people were hanging out and just enjoying the mountains and he just turned to me and said, "you are my best friend." Then he got on one knee and proposed and I said YES!!!

Take Pride!!

I LOVED my proposal, but I mean who wouldn't love there proposal?

We were at my family's cabin and he sent his son to bed, and we went down to the fire (just the two of us, no one else was going to be up until Saturday morning) and he was getting the fire lit, as usual. and having troubles, as usual. he said "do you know what would make this night great?" and I replied "Sex??" he laughed and then I heard him mumble something. (he is still down on his knees) So I asked what? I heard him say my full name and pull out a ring from his pocket (he didn't have it in the box) I didn't hear the rest of what he said. I had been waiting for him to propose for so long, I squealed and grabbed the ring. Wow, best memory at my cabin so far. Just us two, sitting by the fire.

Apparently I was the only one around who DIDN'T know my fiancee was going to propose during a family get-together weekend at my parent's house. He had my mother insist on doing 'family pictures' of the two of us and his kids, which didn't surprise me at all since my mother is camera crazy. After the pictures I realized he wasn't beside me anymore, and when I turned around he was down on one knee! He had a beautiful proposal speech, and having my family and his kids around us made it absolutely perfect! Not to mention, he did an amazing job picking out the ring! :-)

We were in Riviera Maya Mexico for his sisters wedding and he waited till the last day we were there and took me down to the beach at night "for a walk" and I was walking ahead of him and I heard him say " I guess here is good" and I turned around and said what?? and he had the ring on his pinkie and dropped to both knees in the water and said my full name and said will you marry me?? I just jumped on him and started kissing him and my hand was shaking so bad he couldnt get the ring on lol it took me a few minutes to realize I didnt say yes so I said yes as we were walking back up the beach.

Love this thread! He got down on one knee as I was sitting in my recliner :) Of course I said yes! We have been together awhile and will be married in August of 2014! My family was in the next room and we told them after. It was the same date we met.

Fiance had asked my daughter's permission to marry me a year ago April...but held off the proposal until the day AFTER my daughter's own wedding last September. He didn't want to take any shine away from her engagement period. Her wedding was out of province and fiance proposed in a secluded, wooded boardwalk in the national park...on our way home. He had designed a ring and had it made in Toronto. Had that ring in his pocket through my daughter's whole wedding. Her bridal party all knew. My son said fiance was acting a bit oddly as we were setting up for her wedding...now he knows why:)

My SO's proposal was long and elaborate and stretched over a week. He left me notes in ring boxes at many of my usual places during the week. With the note at most places was a little gift as well. Every note had to do with the place I found it. For example, at Starbucks was a little note the barista handed me: "I want to marry you because of your positive energy and you perk me up when I am down."

My now fiance got transferred by his job to 12 hour away drive time. We did the long distance thing for about a year. Embraced the back and forth, had Saturday morning coffee on Skype and a few electronic date nights. All the while I was trying to get a transfer with my job to be closer to him.

During one of his visits (which would be his last), I received a call from my employer asking me to fly up for an interview, but had a few concerns on why the heck I would consider moving to such a location and take a demotion to do it. I was living in my ideal state (no winters) and moved to a not so ideal state (only winters). I told him that my boyfriend was transferred there and we were trying to get closer.

After I got off the phone, I told my boyfriend that I felt awkward saying "my boyfriend" because it sounded so childish and trivial to be changing your life for "just a boyfriend".

Later that night, we were in bed with all the light off. He was so close and his heart was racing so fast that I could actually feel it outside his chest. He's a very laid back guy so I thought something was wrong (plus he is 11 years older than me). I almost ruined the moment with my worried look and my health questions as I was trying to assess the irratic beat. HAHA

Before I finally had enough and tried to get out of bed to turn the light on, he pinned me and said.. "early you said that you didn't like callin gme your boyfriend... well, I don't like it either" and held out the ring for me to feel (because the lights were still off).

We have never talked about marriage or engagement or any of that so yes... I was floored! And.. I got the job so we are now living together and enjoying a long engagement. I hope to plan a date sometime in 2014 (long-distance to 0 distance is a big transition) for an 'ol single set-in-her-ways, independent, professional, self-sufficient lady like myself. HAHA = rough around the edges.

He surprised me at work. He had been trying to contact my boss to get authorization and escort in our building, but my boss was out of state for a conference; so he called the front desk and prayed for a female to pick up the phone. Luckily Wanda agreed to escort him so she could propose.

I was shocked to see him walking around to my cubicle, and I guess my expression really showed it, because Wanda asked me "You do know him, right?!"

He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him and I immediately said yes, then heard a coworker on the other side of the room yell "DON'T DO IT." I looked up and the whole office was staring and started clapping. I walked him around the office to meet the on-lookers and then we left to go to an outdoor concert, where his mother met us and we could told her the news.

We had gone to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan earlier in the day and were strolling around Central Park before getting back on the train. We climbed up on top of Cedar Hill, where we could oversee a lot of the park. He proposed there :) I knew it was coming - the ring was handed down and we had to know if it would fit, as it was sent to us.

He took me to the lifeguard tower on Clearwater Beach where we had our first kiss, and where he first asked me out. After watching the beautiful sunset together, he proposed! :-) So sweet, and I am so happy, just wish we weren't so busy with grad school and could set an official date!

My boyfriend Hal told me he wouldn't be home until late. When I arrived home, all the lights seemed to be out and nothing seemed awry. After puttering around for a bit I went up to our bedroom. A light was on, shining on our bed. On the bed was a giant stuffed Narwhal (with which I am currently cuddling!) and on it's horn was a ring. Hal then popped out of our laundry room and surprised me, lol, and then asked if I would marry him. It was very him, and very lovely and I was surprised. I said yes, of course!

We were planning on going out to dinner and then to a swing dance on the beach after I got off work. It had been a while since we’d gone on a date, so I was already excited! His plan was to propose during the dance, but he was so excited when I got home I guess he couldn’t wait.
He met me just inside the door when I got home. He was all dressed up and gave me a bouquet of roses. Then he told me how much I meant to him and how happy I made him. He seemed really nervous, and I was starting to get suspicious. Finally he got down on one knee (still just inside the front door) holding both my hands in his and asked me to marry him. We’d been talking about it for so long and “proposing” to one another for years, so I asked him if he was being serious. He said yes, and that he even had a ring. He pulled the ring out of his pocket and it was my mother’s from her first marriage (the one to my father). Then he surprised me with our favorite champagne. We toasted and went out to dinner. During dinner he told me he was afraid he would lose the ring in the sand if he proposed at the beach and it would be dark so it’d be even harder to find. By that point, he had gotten himself so worked up that he couldn’t wait any more when I got home. It was very sweet!
I called my parents and they said, “About time! He asked our permission months ago!”

We've talking about getting married for a long time (we've been together just shy of 9 years now and just bought a house together), I knew he had picked out a ring and was making payments on it - and I'd shamefully ask him how it was going, being impatient, and he'd groan and tell me it was going to be a while considering our situation (cars breaking down, apartment fire, buying a house - wild year) So Christmas morning, at his parents' house after the presents had been opened and we were relaxing, he comes over to me and says he has another present for me "or rather for us" and reaches into his pocket and pulls out a little black box and kneels and I knelt down with him and accepted. It was very sweet and wonderful, he totally caught me by surprise :)

I proposed to him. It was almost ten years ago, on Valentine's Day. We've both been so busy with school and life, and then I was diagnosed with cancer in early 2012, which was devastating, and took away my ability to have children. One time when I was laying in the hospital OR prep, he got all teared up and said all he wanted in life was to marry me. He still tells me I'm beautiful even now, having gained about 60 pounds from chemo and having no hair. I don't have a ring yet, even though we both make pretty significant salaries and have no kids, it's hard to get a ring when your weight is changing so drastically and nothing will fit. I'm not sad about it. We have a house and cars and we come home to each other every night - that's how I know he loves me, so a ring will come later.

Cancer may win many battles, but I will win the war.

In a hot air balloon! I have always wanted to be up in one, so he arranged it all without me knowing. He surprised me with it as an "anniversary" present ... but as soon as we got in the air I turned around and he was on one knee in the gondola! I said yes, and when we landed he surprised me again .... all of our friends and family were at my soon to be SIL's house for a celebratory lunch! Definitely one for the books.

We went on a vacation to Vegas/Grand Canyon this past August. We trekked out around 4:30 in the morning on our 2nd day at the canyon, and he popped the question while the sun came up. It was a really great day.

We had been talking about it forever, so to throw me off his scent he came to visit me, but told me the ring wasn't ready. Then, at the least romantic time, he just grabbed my hand and asked. It perfectly showed how awkward we are.

My boyfriend and I had talked about marriage for a while, but never really did anything about it. His brother died and then a few weeks later his father died. Work gave me a bit of a hard time about taking days off for the funerals (we have been together for four years and live together). He was standing in the driveway when I got home, I was still ticked about the hard time work was giving me so I walked by him and said, "When this is over, we are getting married." Then just kept walking into the house.

I guess he was thrilled that I finally agreed, because at the funeral home for his dad, one of his best buddies came up to me and said how sorry he was about Dad, but how excited he was since Donny had asked him to be the best man!

The ring has been ordered....I think a special night is coming....but that's about how it went down! lol

Keep fighting the good fight!

I suggested we have a date night, we went to my favorite restaurant and we both dressed up just to make it seem like more of a date. Before we ate, Charlie asked the waiter to take our picture but said he left the camera in the car, when he went to get it, he really went to get the ring!! (i had to idea!) i should have known something was us since the wait for everyone else was over an hour and we were seated as soon as we got there! (im so ditsy)After our meal, a waitress began walking our way with a huge bouquet of flowers and a balloon that said "i love you", i thought to myself, "its never for me" and sure enough, she sat it down in front of the girl at the table next to us. All of a sudden i heard the waitress say "oh, you're not Aricela?" THAT'S MY NAME! she turned around and placed the flowers in front of me. At that point, i was shocked and kind of confused! Charlie stood up, walked around to my side of the table, got down on one knee... (all i heard as my heart began to race were the voices of every person in that huge restaurant saying "oh my gosh!" and gasping) i believe he asked me to marry him, but from my heart beat pounding in my ears, and my hands covering my entire face from shock and crying like a baby, i dont quite remember that part! lol. he said "so is that a yes?" i nodded my head up and down as i was so choked up i couldnt speak! He placed the ring on my finger, grabbed me out of my seat, and planted a kiss on my lips! everyone began to cheer and lots of people teared up from my reaction, another older couple came over to us and said they were out celebrating their 17th anniversary and that we had made their night. Our waiter brought us a gorgeous dessert that said "congrats" in chocolate on the plate! everyone was in on it! lol. I never even had a clue since I was the one who asked HIM on the date! ugh! He loves the fact that he finally got me! lol. also, i recently found out (6 months after the proposal) that he bought the ring a month after we started dating! Pretty confident guy! lol.

I have to be happy with myself before i can make others happy.

My fiance' stole my emerald ring he gave me in May- he stole it in July of 2012 after I had too much to drink one night.

In December on a tuesday night he told me to get dressed up and we were going out to dinner- I knew it was just lingering there and was waiting for it to happen, after dinner we went back to the car and he asked for something out of the glove box- I opened it to find my emerald and freaked out thinking he had found my lost ring after all this time! Then looked over and he was on one knee with my great grandmas diamond

i was in a cookie cutter marriage for almost 20 yrs. trying to do everything right was a waste of time. i don't like diamonds either. find them cliche. he proposed in new orleans with a vintage garnet that is spectacular and interesting. like us ;)

During our mini vacation to Bryson, NC., we rented a cabin in the Smokey Mountains. I had hoped he would propose, but after three days I had completely forgotten. In one of our trips into town, he asked me to sit on the railing of a bridge to take my picture. As I sat, he came over and proposed on one knee. I was actually shocked after all. The minute he proposed, it started to snow lightly. Being from Sunny Ft. Lauderdale, Florida this was a really nice coincident. God willing, we will be honeymooning in Italy this coming October.

My fiancee wanted to propose on 11-11-2011. So she planned this romantic trip to traverse city, but both of us ended up getting sick. But she was determined to go on this trip anyway. I was completely oblivious, contagious and on a bunch of antibiotics, but we made it up north, and she proposed at sunset over the dunes. It was romantic and amazing, and I wouldn't change a thing!

We hiked to the top of Apgar Lookout at Glacier National Park and stood on the mountain overlooking a beautiful lake, just the two of us. He told me how much he loved me and got down on one knee :)

My SO and I met on a writer's website online, and met in person in the city I went to college in.

For the proposal, he drove the 10 hours to where I was staying for college in his Class A's (he's also a firefighter), took me to the exact place we first met, and proposed with this great little speech at sunset. He and my mom worked it all out to be a surprise; she helped him hide his car, sneak down, etc. He put the story of the proposal into his weekly column for the local paper.

He told me we were going to go out to eat but first he wanted to swing by the store. He parked in a parking lot and we walked to the place where we met and he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.

I live 6 hours from him, so he got me to come down to his house by telling me we were going ring shopping so he could get ideas for when he was ready to propose. Unfortunately for him, it rained the day he planned on proposing, so we actually ended up going ring shopping all day. The next day, he woke me up and told me he got called into work to do a maintenance flight (he is a pilot). He said I could go with him since there was room in the plane. When we were up in the air in an adorable little two seater white and red plane, he tipped the plane to the side, and I saw "Marry me?" written out on the ground below. "Is that for me?" I asked several times. He then asked officially, and of course I said yes. Once we landed, I noticed we were pulling into the airport terminal instead of going back to his hangar. Then I saw my family and friends rushing out to congratulate us. An impromptu engagement party followed. It was perfect!

My fiance and I had pretty much already agreed that we were getting married for the longest time, so it wasn't a big surprise that he did propose. What came as a surprise was *how* he proposed.

Neither of us like diamonds. Knowing what goes on in the business, neither of us can stomach wearing them, and I mentioned before that I'd like either a claddagh or a plain gold band, like what my mom had. However, he went above and beyond my expectations.

One day we were sitting at home, and before my baffled eyes he pulled out a SWORD. It was a lovely cutlass in an embossed leather scabbard, battle-ready and with an edge sharp enough to split hairs. He got himself an rapier, a sword just as beautiful as the one he gave me.

We've already okayed with the priest: our Maid of Honor and Best Man will bear the swords at the ceremony.

If we ever divorce it'll be EPIC.

It was on Easter. My whole family was together. After we had finished dinner he said he had a video for all of us, and at the end of the video he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I loved it!! :)

It was on my birthday. He took me out for a great dinner and then we went to a very nice club for drinks and music. After he brought me back home he got down on one knee and popped the question. I was in such disbelief that I had to ask him if he really proposed. He laughed and proposed again to me the next morning. I get feel so mushy just thinking about that again. emoticon

It was perfect...just me and him hanging out in his house. I love that it was personal and private! I also thought it was so cute that even though he knew I would say yes, his hands were shaking when he held the ring out to me!

We are big local hockey fans. We were in our box at the hockey game when he got down on one knee and proposed. The whole thing was seen on the big screen hanging above the middle of the hockey rink.

It was Valentine's Day this year, and we weren't planning on exchanging presents since neither of us is working much at the moment. He told me, though, that he had a small present for me. He told me to sit on the couch and cover my eyes. When I opened them, he was holding a small box wrapped in gold wrapping paper and tied with a gold ribbon. He asked me, "Will you be my Gussey?" Gusse ("Goose") is his last name, and I always call him Gussey.

It was the sweetest, simplest, most charming proposal, and was perfect for who we are. I love him!

I need all the support and motivation that I can get!

We had been dating a little over a year when we took a trip to Hawaii to visit his brother and brother's family; his bother is in the Army, stationed there. His brother was a great host, planning out tons of things that we should see and do, but he thought we would want one day to ourselves, so that day, we woke up early, went horseback riding, grabbed a quick lunch, then ocean kayaking all afternoon (which was exhausting!!). We changed into nicer clothes at the public restroom on the beach, then went to Waikiki for dinner. We had reservations, otherwise we may have just gone back and gone to sleep. We had a quiet dinner under the moonlight, then walked on the beach back to the car. He wanted to stop and sit along the way, but I hesitated - tired and not wanting to get my dress sandy. I gave in, and as we sat and talked, he pulled something shiny out of his pocket, smiled as he showed me the ring, and said, "Let's make this forever".
