proposition


Call me old-fashioned, call me romantic - but I want to ask you a personal question?
Did your mate get on bended knee to pop the question?  Love to know.  Tell me about your proposal?
How romantic is this image, a proposal on a wintry night?
It looks like an "I will" to me.

Love this picture and so romantic....
Funny thing about our proposal we have been married 24 years and together for over 26 and we each have our version of our proposal and they are in totally different restaurants. So basically I can remember our first date down to what we were wearing but neither of us remembers our proposal. Sad uh!

Yes. It was New Years Eve in 1999. He had broken up with me a few months before but he talked me into 'doing the millennium' with him because we were the only ones in our group of friends that were excited about it. We drove to Atlanta, Georgia to the Ritz Carlton to a beautiful ball and he dropped down on one knee and pulled out the ring. I couldn't have been more shocked. It's definitely an easy date to remember! Not every has the entire world celebrating on the night of their proposal. ; )

Such a beautiful photo! My husband did get down on one knee and it actually looked so much like this scene! We were in Jackson Hole Wyoming and he waited for a night when it was snowing (luckily the weather was on our side this trip) and then he popped the question out on the streets with snow on the ground and snow falling down - it was so beautiful!

I hope after we all remember when he asked and we said yes...we go give him a kiss, similar to the one that moment, maybe long ago.

no, nothing v romantic to report. but it was almost 32 yrs ago that we jumped into his dad's porsche, both of us in cowboy boots and drove to vegas and got married. looking back, i wouldn't change a single detail. lovely photograph though!

Ah, such a romantic post. Mr. H did go down on bended knee. His well-crafted plot involved a beach in Belize, a post-dinner walk, and a map of the stars. He completely surprised me - in fact the first words out of my mouth were, "what are you doing?" "Yes!" soon followed. What a lovely memory to start the week with, thanks Patricia. What was your story?

Oh mine did, and it's been 30 years ago and I still remember it vividly...such a wonderful and exciting time!!

My hubby proposed to me at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the Italian Renaissance Sculpture Garden. I was very surprised and elated! He told me later, he wanted to get down on one knee, but decided out of nervousness not to, and proposed sitting side by side holding my left hand. I'll never forget that moment in time!

We used to have a date every year on the anniversary of our engagement at the same French restaurant in South Florida where we were engaged. My husband did propose on one knee at our table and pulled the ring from his sock -- very romantic! We moved away after ten years, but still celebrate the anniversary of our engagement 28 years ago!

My husband of 35 years proposed to me on a day most special to me: the first day of spring. He was a poor law student and while I thought we might marry, a ring did not seem to be affordable. After he proposed he told me to shut my eyes and put two rings in my hand. Then he told me to open my eyes and pick one. The rings had been left by his beloved grandmother for the "someday." She was a poet who loved words and her beloved husband. I am honored to wear a part of her love everyday.

OK...funny that I mentioned my engagement today on the blog and here we are.

So...more details. Grant didn't actually get down on his knee b/c we were perched on the rocks at the top of the Seven Pools. These magnificent water falls were not flowing the January of 1998, so we were able to walk out right into the middle. A lone sailboat captain, sunning himself on the rocks, caught the proposal on film....as I just thought he was going to take our photo. Grant had been to this location many years before and had had this proposal in his head for some time before we got there.

nothing romantic. no knee. no real proposal even. I had to ask him if he was asking me to marry him.

My husband & I got married last year. He proposed on February 13th (aka "Desperation Day" if you watch How I Met Your Mother) while we were skiing in Colorado. We stopped at a really pretty vista (we were also skiing with a friend of ours) and he asked her to take a picture of us. She took one, & he asked her to take another, and next thing I knew, he was on his knee. I was so surprised I couldn't even cry (the cold wind in my face might have also had something to do with that, LOL). I love it that my friend was there so we have photos of the whole thing.

My hubby smuggled a ring through Mexican customs and proposed on a beach in Cozumel - so unexpected yet a wonderful surprise. I said yes and had to learn the words "we're engaged!" in Spanish very quickly.

Yes, my husband proposed to me on my deck in Dupont Circle on one knee. Very romantic Fourth of July weekend and I was expecting it on our roof deck on 7/4 but he popped the question on July 1st so we had the whole weekend to celebrate. Such a wonderful snowy scene!

Beautiful shot! My husband proposed to me at Jules Verne on the Eiffel Tower...he had a vintage sweetheart bracelet (like my Granmother's that I loved) inscribed with "Will you marry me" that was on the neck of a bottle of champagne that was delivered to our table...my Grandmother, mother, and sister were there...it was absolutely incredible. We then shopped the next few days for my ring at the Porte de Clignancourt, where I found my art nouveau engagment ring that I adore.
Proposals are so romantic!

Happy New Year to you!

No knee bending for us, but he did ask my dad for my hand. We went to the restaurant of our 1st date. He knew me well enough to know I would have been embarrassed if he got down on one knee. I don't like attention drawn to me. 21 years of marriage + 3 yrs of dating through sickness and health... we are happy. Did your honey get on his knee? xo

My husband sent me to NYC on a girls weekend to relive my days there...the second day I was supposed to be meeting a friend at a wrap party for work at the Polar Bear Exhibit in the Central Park Zoo...I was of course running late and in a hurry running through the zoo when someone kept bumping into me from behind - I turned around and there was my future husband on one knee asking me to marry him...it was a true fairytale moment!

How beautiful is this! My Mr did get down on one knee and asked for my parents blessings before hand. It was sweet as could be.

Had to share because John outdid himself with his proposal. He surprised me with a weekend trip to Hawaii and then after a wonderful day of hiking, snorkeling, etc., we were watching the sunset on the North Shore and he got down on one knee and popped the question. So romantic. He had called my mom to ask permission earlier that week. Here we are 3 kids and 12 years later...

My husband did... but I didn't know he was proposing. I thought he was offering me his knee to sit on because I needed to tie my shoe. Boy was I shocked... but he asked while I was sitting on his knee.

annie said...

So romantic...my daughter and I saw something like this (no snow though) in central Park this last November...we were so touched by witnessing something so sweet.

Yes he did! Out on his Grandma's farm under the willow tree:))

I agree, for the most part, but don’t you feel as if the issue is more complex than that?
