A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

"My fiancée has a terrible habit of asking why I love her. I decided to answer her for good (it didn’t work, she still asks). I printed out around a hundred pictures from our past and hung them from the ceiling of her room with twine, each with a relevant reason as to why I loved her. I surprised her when she got home from work and as she was totally overwhelmed with the display, I got on one knee. After the crying and calling family and friends I whisked her away for a weekend beach vacation so the two of us could be together and just soak it all in."

My Big Fat Tuesday Proposal

"During Mardi Gras this past year, my fiancé jumped off of the float he was riding on (he had asked for permission) and came over to the barricade where he knew I would be standing with all of our friends and relatives. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Then our friends and family members threw rose petals on us, which he had planned. It was amazing — definitely a proposal for the record books." —Corinne Bogar

On Top of the World

I got engaged on Santa Monica Pier at the top of the Ferris Wheel. My fiancé and I were there celebrating our seven-year anniversary. I saw four friends holding signs that read 'Will you marry me?' I started crying and I couldn't stop hugging my fiancé." — Ericka J. Otero 

Proposal on the Beach

"He proposed on the balcony of our hotel overlooking the ocean at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and my ring was hidden in this shell! The beach has always been my favorite place." —Kristin Gunnell Price

Kindling our Love

"I bought her a Kindle for our third anniversary, and wrote a little story about us. Something cute, about ‘this guy met a girl, and they talked about this and that’ (with specifics about our relationship, of course). One of our early conversations was about Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and the phrase “Do you know where your towel is?” The last line of the story that I wrote was “And, one very important question: Do you know where your towel...rather, your engagement ring is?” When she looked up at me, I brought out the box with the ring, knelt down, and asked the question. We got married two months ago." - Anonymous

Happiest Mother's Day of All!

"My fiancé proposed on my first Mother's Day with the help of our four-month old son, who was wearing a custom onesie that said, 'Mommy, will you marry my Daddy?' I couldn't have asked for a more special moment." —Kelly Bickford

"In Your Eyes ... I am Complete."


My favorite movie is "Say Anything", so my fiancé showed up to my house wearing a trench coat and he held up a stereo that played Peter Gabriel's 'In Your Eyes' outside of my bedroom window. I ran outside to see what was going on and he asked me to marry him." —Nicole Fernandez

The Happiest Proposal on Earth

"My fiancé set up a proposal scavenger hunt in Disneyland since I've always been a huge Disneyland fan. Each clue (there were six) brought us to a different ride in the park, and a staff member at the end of each ride handed me the next clue. The last one took me to Rapunzel's room. Rapunzel told me to close my eyes and make a wish, and when I opened them, he was down on one knee." —Sarah McIntosh

Big Apple of My Eye

In 1996, I received mail for one year telling me about a “Precious Moments” conference in NYC and my husband signed us up to attend.  For one year my husband planned every detail of this to make me “think” I was going to NY for a conference.  The time came for our 10 year anniversary so we rented a car and headed toward NYC only to make a small “detour” at the Pocons Resorts!!!  We stayed for 4 nights and during that time he gave me 10 gifts (one for each year we were married).  The most memorable gift was a quilt that my mother embroidered with the past 10 years of our life (our children's hands/feet, our first home, the place we were married, etc.)  To end this very nice surprise, my hubby had our pastor tape a renewal of vows video so we renewed our vows right there in our room and, of course, he topped that off with an anniversary ring with 10 perfect diamonds that I still to this day wear to remember that very, very special time.


He "Popped" the Question!

"My fiancé proposed to me in front of both of our families. I always told him I wanted to be proposed to with a ring pop so his mom, aunt, and sister all put ring pops on my hand and asked me to marry them (I had no idea what was going on). Then he asked, 'What about me?' He put a ring pop on my finger, then said, 'Wait, I have something better.' He pulled out a real ring box this time and started playing 'Marry Me' by Bruno Mars. I was completely speechless and was crying my eyes out, but I did say yes and we were married on May 25, 2014!" —Christine Ann

Sweet Conversation


"My fiancé and I have been dating a little over 3 years, he took me to one of our regular date spots for dinner and as dessert came out so did a little plate with 5 valentines conversation hearts which read "I love you, real love, marry me, say yes, soul mates" I still didn't get it. I thought the restaurant was just being sweet and romantic as it was a week before Valentine's Day... My fiancée asked me if I read them. I started to read them out loud to him and from the corner of my eye I saw him get down on one knee I looked over- he was crying and asked, "Will you marry me?" I responded, "Are you serious???" With tons of excitement and then we stood up kissed and the whole restaurant started clapping and cheering! As we sat back down, all of a sudden my little sister and her fiancée walked in she surprised me and flew in from across the country! My fiancée knew that she's the first person I’d want to see right after that! I wanted to call my parents immediately but they were overseas on vacation and I couldn't get through! I tried my entire family and no one picked up! Then he suggested we get a get a celebratory drink somewhere and I said we had to go to the spot we first met at 3 1/2 years ago! We got in an Uber and the four of us headed there! When we walked in my fiancée pulled me upstairs to this private area and there were 45 of our closest friends and our families who had flown in from various places and once everyone parted off to the side I saw my parents who had flown back 26.5 hours and surprised us there."

Up, Up and Away to a Beautiful Life!

My fiance surprised me with a sunrise hot air balloon ride and as we were taking off, I was told to look down. Below me, I saw a banner that said, 'Will you marry me?' I looked back at him and he was down on one knee with the ring!" —Alexa Davis

"Brand" New Life Together

"At our cattle branding this year, my fiancé Jared tagged a little calf with a tag that said 'Will you marry me 18/05' so when I bent down to put a metal tag in his ear, he took the ring out of his vest pocket and I instantly bent over crying, as this was a total shock to me. I said yes as I hugged Jared." —Chantal Gallant

This One's a Catch!

My fiancé put the ring on a fishing pole, we went fishing and I reeled it in and he proposed!" —Jennifer Lynn

Love, Military Style

How We Met: Josh and I met in high school. We started dating my junior year of high school and his senior year of high school. After graduation, Josh enlisted in the United States Army and I stayed behind to go to college. Josh is now serving his third year in the military, and I am finishing up my junior year at Texas A&M University (A-A-A-WHOOP!).

How He Asked: Josh is stationed in Fort Lewis, Washington and the last time I saw Josh was during his leave at Christmas time. On Friday, March 27th, which happened to be my 21st birthday, my mom and two of my best friends managed to lead me to the Century Tree on the Texas A&M University campus. The tradition with the Century Tree is that if a proposal takes place under this tree, the marriage is supposed to last forever. I walked under a Saber Arch formed by members of the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets to meet my prince. The proposal was more than I could have ever dreamed of and I was so happy to have both of our families watching in the distance. - Katherine and Josh

Toad-ally Sweet Proposal


He had a funny habit of catching frogs near his apartment. There was a terrarium at my house, so we would put a few in there for my kids (from my first marriage) to watch. He worked crazy hours, so sometimes on his way out the door, he would text me and say there was something at his house for me to pick up. And I’d drive over to retrieve another poor captive froggie. (Don’t worry folks, he bought them live food from the pet store and they were always released back into the wild in a couple of days.) So one day he sends me a text. He had just finished working 20 hours after working 16 the previous day. But he had something for me to pick up, so he would stay awake for another hour so we could see each other for a few minutes before he fell asleep. I drove to his apartment and let myself in. I didn’t see any amphibians in the kitchen, so I went to his bedroom to see if he had the critter in there and to steal a goodnight kiss. I walked in and he was in bed already. He popped a ring box out from under his pillow and opened it. But before he had said a word, and before I could say anything, he had fallen asleep! The poor guy... I gave him a big kiss, and woke him up just enough to tell him “yes” and then did the nicest thing I could do for him. I got the hell out of there and let him sleep! Been married four years now, the frogs have been replaced with two dogs, a cat, some fish and five kids. 

Love Knows No Borders

"She's American. He's Irish. They met in Italy and started out as friends. Friends who liked each other A LOT. But after months of just friends, she thought she read the signals wrong, until one night at the bar he slipped her a napkin. 'I really like you,' he had written. Fast-forward four years and many international adventures later, and they are sitting at a bar in Berlin reminiscing. He pulls a napkin out of his pocket. She takes it, confused. 'Years ago I told you I liked you just like this. Now I'm asking: Will you marry me?' it read." 

A Proposal with Class


"We sourced the diamond and our moms gave us gold to trade (for rose gold)... He is a high school teacher and I also teach high school art. So he popped the question in the principal's office after me thinking I was in trouble!! After being really embarrassed, he swept me away in a car with champagne."

Roof Proposal Gone Viral

Prior to a flood in Colorado, where I live, we had a severe hail storm, which damaged our roof. My clever fiancé contacted the roofing company two weeks prior to replacing it and he asked if he could paint his proposal on our roof. The foreman granted him permission and chuckled, saying he'd let his crew know the message wasn't intended for them.  A week later, my cousin shared a photo with me from Facebook that a passerby had taken — our proposal had gone viral." —Kristi Whitcomb

Patriotic Proposal


"My fiancé proposed on the Fourth of July. My mother asked us to go to the backyard to get some chairs and he took me by the shed where we could see all of the fireworks. He kissed me, then he took the ring box out of his pocket and asked me to be his wife. He was shaking a little. The proposal was a little silly but perfect, just like him." —Bri Wallace Cords

"Happy Place" Proposal

"My proposal was perfect because the beach has always been my happy place. I am a nurse and I work in a stressful environment so we frequent there any chance we get. Aaron, my fiancé, knew that, and he wanted to take me to 'my happy place' to ask me to be his wife! My dad and I have collected shells together since I was a little girl and that added to the significance of the moment. It was the perfect proposal!" 
—Kristin Gunnell Price

Beauty from Ashes Proposal

I lost my dad to stage four kidney cancer on August 27th, 2014. To say I was broken, lost, and devastated, would be an understatement. I grew up a daddy’s girl, and losing him felt like I lost myself. Fast forward a couple years later, and here’s when my story changed.

I had pretty much written off the idea of ever getting married after my dad died since he couldn’t walk me down the aisle. The thought of it always hurt too much, but that all changed when Brian came along. I truly believe that God and my dad had been working their magic when they brought him into my life. We’d met not long after my dad passed away, but didn’t officially have our first date until two years to the day of his passing, August 27th, 2016. We visited the cemetery on a very non-traditional first date, and I explained everything about our special bond and got to tell him just how amazing of a father my dad was. I never believed when people said, “When you know, you know”, but after this first date of ours, I knew that this was my future husband.

Fast forward to May 6th, 2017. Brian asked if we could go to the cemetery – something I never say no to. My mom was planning on being there too, but I didn’t think anything of it because she visits my dad daily. We spent some time reminiscing about my dad together, and then so unexpectedly, Brian dropped down on one knee.

He said, “I wanted the two most important people in your life to be a part of this, so I brought you here, where we came on our first date. I knew on that date that you would be my wife, so, Monika, will you marry me?!”

I went into complete shock and after many tears, I said yes!

(This was the moment after he asked that I looked up and thanked God and my dad for bringing this amazing man to me.)

Our proposal story isn’t traditional by any means, but in my eyes, it’s exactly what love is! He knew how important it was for my parents to be involved and he made that happen even if it wasn’t in a traditional way. I can say I’ve never met a person that got engaged in a cemetery!

On June 2nd, 2018, I will marry this amazing man, and I know my dad will be with us every step of the way that day.

Love, Illuminated


"My fiancé proposed on December 27th. After a long day of work, I came home and saw rose petals strewn on the floor. He had also arranged the Christmas lights on our wall to say 'Will you marry me?' and he was all dressed up in a dress shirt and tie! He came up with the idea on his own." —Patricia Handy


She Didn't See It Coming.

On this wild, wet ride, she never saw what was yet to come until she saw their picture at the end of the ride. The Happiest Place on Earth was now that much happier!

Love Conquers All

“My partner was diagnosed with cancer twice at the age of 23. I stuck by his side every step of the way. He had an operation to get rid of the cancer the first time, but then sadly had to have chemotherapy because it had spread. He lost all his hair but remained strong and positive the whole time. Me and my work friends wanted to run the Race For Life 2014 in Harlow in aid of him (Matt) – it was an amazing day and the sun was beaming. I was surrounded by my amazing friends and family. Once I had finished running the race; all hot and sweaty, everyone celebrated with champagne and beers. Matt then took me for a walk around the park, it was nice to have some alone time. He then knelt down on one knee and asked me to marry him! I was so overwhelmed and passers–by all cheered for us! Su from Heart Essex Radio found out and announced it on the speakers, I had people calling me up saying what they’ve just heard on the speakers. All my family and friends were crying and hugging and we carried on celebrating with more champagne. It was one of the best days of my life. Matt had now been in remission for 17 months and is fit and healthy!” - Kellie Ellis

"Making" It "Up"


"Three months into our relationship, we had an argument and I cried in front of him for the first time. He said he didn't want me to cry, he wanted to f*&#@$g marry me. I said 'yup.'"

"Staging" the Romance

"For our First Date on February 10, 2012, Michael took me to the Knicks/Laker game at MSG. It was an incredible game during the Linsanity craze, and by far the best first date ever! We both left that night with an unforgettable feeling in our hearts and 'butterflies' in our stomachs. Needless to say, we have been inseparable ever since. Exactly one year later on February 10, 2013, I thought it would be sweet to take Michael to the Knicks game to celebrate our amazing year together. Michael had much larger plans for our special day. Before we went into MSG, Michael asked me to re-enact how and where we met up before our first date; thinking this was very silly, I obliged. Only this time when I walked up to where he was waiting for me, he dropped down to his knee and asked me to marry him."

A Secure Proposal Plan

They were going to Whistler for vacation where he was going to propose. She loves to watch things go through the scanner at security in the airport. All of a sudden TSA zoomed in on her ring in his carry on and he turned her around to distract her. She had no idea and after being together since high school she was still surprised that he pulled it off on their trip.
