We asked—you answered! How did your fiancee propose? Did you know it was going to happen or was it a total surprise? Here are your proposal stories gathered from our Facebook page and Twitter feed:
“I was about to propose to my husband and before I did, he got down on one knee and proposed first. I was totally surprised, but he knew I was going to propose (thanks to his mother) so he made sure to ask me first.” —Wand-erful Life-Bouquets
“We were on a vacation cruise, getting ready for the captain’s dinner. I was fussing about which necklace would look best with my dress and Steve said “I know what would look good on you.” He pulled the ring box out of his jacket pocket and asked me to marry him. I was totally surprised. I got butterflies and started shaking. I still get butterflies just thinking about it! —Robbie
” I was totally surprised! We went out for St. Patty’s Day with all of our friends (of course they knew) and he gave out a bag to everyone, filled with fun St. Patty’s stuff in it. But when I opened mine, there was a precious moment in it with a little boy down on one knee, holding a sign that said “Please check one: yes or no,” and when I looked around for him, he was already down on knee! Freakin’ amazing!” —Shealyn
“It was our one-year anniversary of dating. Mr. Daniel had talked to my boss one month prior so that I would be able to get off super early that day. Once I was off work, my best friend called and asked me to meet for coffee. It was spur of the moment, but I did! She is a makeup artist and was putting her portfolio together, so she asked me at coffee if she could do my makeup and take some pictures for her portfolio and I said yes! We headed back to my place and when I opened the door to my bedroom, there was a beautiful silk Ralph Lauren dress and a pair of Michael Kors shoes with a note that read ‘Be ready by 7 pm. There will be a car waiting for you.’ My best friend pretended like she had NO idea what was going on, so she continued to do my hair and makeup. Then, at 7 pm, the chauffeur picked me up and started driving toward Dallas…I had no idea where he was taking me UNTIL the area started looking familiar. We parked by this lake that Mr. Daniel and I would usually run at and the chauffeur opened my door and told me to start walking down toward the bridge in front of me. I saw this man in the bushes taking pictures of me, and then I saw the bridge—it was completely covered with roses and candles! Then, as I was walking down the bridge, there were notes he had written me. When I got to the end of the bridge, Mr. Daniel came around the corner and handed me MORE flowers and then got on one knee and asked me to marry him. Of course, I said ‘YES!’ The rest of our evening included dinner in Dallas and the man taking pictures was a photographer, who was there to capture the entire proposal.” —Lauren
“Complete surprise! Palm Springs trip for b-day weekend, and then under the stars.” —@rooneycj
