My hubby proposed to me in the middle of a Christian bookstore with a true love waits ring while we were shopping for Spanish/English bibles before he headed to a missions trip in Tijuana. It was completely unexpected and perfect!!

I was proposed to, while we were parked at the water front :)

My dh was very nervous and had it all planned out, but he was so nervous he couldn't wait for his plan. He pulled the ring out while we were taking a walk and asked if I wanted it. He will never live that down. I said, of course I want it,
Who doesn't want a diamond ring. Then he got nervous and said, I am trying to propose, it's an engagement ring. I laughed and said, I know and yes!

It was Christmas and my DH wrapped up, in many boxes (like pass the parcel) a card, a beautiful pre-Raphaelite card, the picture is a favourite of us both and features a young couple with the most gorgeous blue sky. Grant simply wrote, 'Darling, will you make my skies forever blue? Marry me?'

The rest, as they say, is history!

Well if my DH ever found out I wrote this he might get a tad upset. We went to Niagra Falls for the weekend when we arrived at our hotel ( we had both just got off of work and went straight there) anyway I climbed into the hot tub with him and I was joking saying we should get married since we are here. He looked at me told me to go outside to the car and get his lunchbox ( had to get dressed), so I did he tells me to get undressed and get back in the tub and close my eyes so I did. I heard something drop in the water and him curse he did this 3 times. Finally he tells me to open my eyes and he is there on bended knee in the hot tub and ask me " Would you make this the happiest birthday of my life by becoming my wife?" we have been together almost 11 years and married almost 10

Aww.... We were at uni, and we used to go for walks by the river to feed the ducks. On one of those walks, when it had been raining and it was dark and the lights were sparkling and reflecting on the river's surface and on the wet pathway, he dropped down on one knee (in the wet!) to ask if I'd make him really happy by agreeing to be his wife :-) Brings happy tears to remember those details!

My husband proposed on a dinner cruise in Cancun - it was our first vacation together. I was shocked!

He used a Mary Moo Moo (i collect them) that was proposing and asked me in our favorite steak restaurant.

My husband proposed to me in our apartment out of the blue. Apparently he'd been carrying the ring around waiting for the perfect moment and he couldn't wait any longer. I was wearing a nightgown and looked a fright. I guess that means he really loves me right? LOL
