Did the proposal catch you by surprise? Or did you see it coming?

How surprised were you by your proposal? 💍 Were you so surprised that you're still in a state of shock? 😉 Did you think it could be happening soon based on conversations about marriage, potential timelines, or even your ring size?? Did you realize right before they went down on one knee?

So how surprised were you? Or how much did you surprise your fiancé(e)??

    He'd been talking about getting married since 2014 and I'd been saying I wouldn't say yes until we were out of school with stable jobs. So he waited 6 months after we gots jobs after school to do it. We were on a short trip out west and it had occurred to me beforehand that it would be a good opportunity to do it, but once we were both out there it slipped my mind entirely so I was very surprised when he did it.

    Me and my Fiancée have been together since high school- we got our licenses together, graduated together, roomed together, traveled, rented, and owned together and I got to become a Mum to two twin girls, and two kitties too.
    Nine years later, we’re all still here- a little older, maybe some wiser, and I get to marry my best friend.
    On Christmas Day, just this past 2019, I woke at 6:37am (but no kiddos- they were at their Moms) because I’m still a kid at heart and couldn’t sleep anymore, we both got up and started to make coffee.We were sitting in the living room, warming our hands with the fresh brew when he asked me to come stand in front of the Christmas tree with him. Here I am thinking, ‘Awe yay, our annual Christmas tree selfie!’, but he said to me, ‘Okay, now turn and face me.’What kind of selfie is this? Whatev-And he got down on one knee in front of the Christmas tree, and asked me to marry him.It was magical, I was surprised for sure. I knew one day, but not that day.It was snowing big fluffy snowflakes, falling gently, coffee in hand- but it was different that time... it was perfect.❄️❄️❄️

    He definitely surprised me.

    Threw me a surprise 30th birthday party -- already enough of a surprise with that! Then he brought out the cake!

    On the back was written "Trish, will you marry me?" and he turned it around after I had blown out the candles Smiley smile

    I was surprised but also not? If that makes sense.


    We went on a cruise for our 2 year dating anniversary in October of 2017. We planned a 2 nights in Miami Beach beforehand (in case of major flight delays, also to say we've been to Miami beach). At that point, we have lived together for 6 months and have talked a little bit about marriage/kids in the future and basically on the same page. I figured he'd propose on our cruise, maybe a few nights in. He actually proposed the first day in Miami Beach so that's what took me by surprise lol

    I was in total shock. I thought we were going to wait until we purchased our first home before getting engaged. He was acting weird all day. He proposed the same day that I took him out for his birthday celebration dinner (wasn't his actual birthday) and was rushing all the way thru his meal...

    We went to the place where he first told me he loved me at the beach. I feel bad for not crying when it happened (i'm not usually a huge crier anyways) but I was so surprised, I can't even really remember what happened lol

    I was completely surprised. I knew it would happen soon, but I never knew when it would exactly happen. He did a good job hiding it

    For months my fiance had asked me about rings I liked, we even had a Pinterest page of inspiration.
    We were running errands on a Monday night and he said he needed my ring size so we stopped at a local jewelry store, for fun I tried on a few and I fell in love with two but our plan was to buy a man made stone online to save money. The next few days he talked about how he wasn't ready to spend that much money, and how he wanted to keep looking. So I was absolutely shocked when he proposed on Saturday of the same week. Even the jeweler was surprised that he went in the day after we looked and bought the ring!

    I wasn't surprised by my proposal Smiley tongue But yes, he sure was!

    We had talked about marriage back in October 2017 and I told him since he had already been engaged once, that I don't want to be #2 - and that I was going to pop the question to him! He thought I would propose in like a year or wait till our 1 year anniversary when we would be travelling to Paris/Prague/Amsterdam - but that would be too predictable! So instead I planned a whole date night and proposed on Dec. 30th 2017 which has no significance other than now that is the day I proposed!

    The only thing about the proposal that shocked me was the ring lol we've been together for 12 years already and living together for 5 of them, plus I accidentally found the ring box when I was looking for some paperwork I neededSmiley laugh I didn't look at the ring though, but it was tempting for the whole 2 weeks that I knew it was there to when he finally did it! The ring itself was nothing like the ones I had suggested to him so that's why it was such a surprise. But I absolutely love it, and it has more meaning I think that it was completely him that chose it.
