What was your very favorite part about your proposal? Did something they said or did show how well they knew you? Was it how much effort was put in? Was it how intimate the moment was?

    Honestly, just knowing he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. Cheesy and cliche, but the honest truth Smiley xd

    Honestly all of it. It didn't even feel real. IT was perfect. My favourite place in the world with my favourite person. It was simple yet huge and just amazing

    Honestly, the immediate aftermath. Telling my parents (who were there), and then calling the rest of our immediate family and being able to say "We're Engaged!" I was so excited. Also the whole being surrounded by Christmas lights thing. It makes the memory so magical.

    This might sound vain but it was seeing and hearing about how much thought, time and energy he had put into the proposal. He had been secretly working his ass off for months in order to pull it all together and it really showed. There was so much thought in every detail, I was and forever will be floored by the whole thing!

    It's so cliche; but everything. It was everything I wanted. A surprise, intimate, thoughtful, and so very us. He was so thoughtful about each part of the whole evening and it was just so beautiful Smiley shame Smiley heart

    Everything. It was just the two of us, relaxing at a beautiful and quiet camp ground. We didn't have to go see any family or anyone right after. We were able to enjoy the moment just us for a whole week. It was all perfect.

    It was very much "us". We aren't a super gushy romantic couple so it was not overly cute or drawn out or planned.

    How intimate it was and that we had our maternity photos afterwards which sort of doubled as engagement photos

    Just how intimate it was done at home. I’m not a fan of big and public so it was perfect

    The whole thing was really us! I did like how he kept the ring hidden from me (it was in our house for a month).

    I enjoyed hearing his side of things afterward, how he knew it was time, how he was slightly nervous, how he thought about proposing by the ocean but knowing us, someone would drop the ring, how he called my parents while I was in the airport washroom lol. I didn't notice that he chose different security lines deliberately but when he told me why, it made more sense! I thought he was acting weird throughout the trip but I just shrugged it off as being tired/quiet from travelling, but then I found out why!

    Also our friend who was with us was the one he bought the ring from, so hearing how excited she was for the last month was neat too!

    I wasn't expecting it to be on Valentine's Day so it was a nice surprise! Especially since he came home early to set up a charcuterie board for me since I was too sick to leave the house. I also liked that we were alone!

    I'd never seen him cry before (and haven't since), but he definitely got teary after I said yes. I can't even think about it now without getting emotional!

    Another thing... We don't live together (families are way too traditional for that), so we usually meet up somewhere and take one car from there when we go out. On that day, he had parked up the street from my parents' house, watched me leave in my car, then when I was out of sight, ran up to talk to my mom and formally ask for her permission to ask me to marry him. Then he had to make up an elaborate story about why he was slightly late when he finally met up with me. Looking back now I can't believe I didn't figure it all out. Just the thought of him trying to hide in this ridiculously flashy bright yellow classic car... so funny!

    I think it was the fact that we had no cell reception while in the mountains, so we got to enjoy our engagement in "privacy" for about 2 hours, before going back to our hotel room and making calls.

    How much of a surprise it was! I honestly had no idea. I also love that he included the family on the trip and we have a beautiful set of pictures from it

    I was so impressed and moved by how much effort he took to plan it (most of all because he's not a planner AT ALL - he's 100% the impulsive one) and work with my family and even my boss to make it go perfectly!

    It was such a surprise! We had talked about marriage before but I still never really thought "when" totally caught me off guard! I'll never forget that feeling!

    Honestly just the proposal in general, i knew he had a ring so I was getting impatient. I was excited to finally tell everyone and start planning. I made a point to not look at anything wedding related until we were engaged.

    He surprised me. I honestly had no idea it was coming, so I was genuinely surprised. I always thought I’d know for sure the moment he’d do it but I was so wrong lol.

    All of it honestly, I know it didn't go as planned but what he had planned was really sweet and he had asked my parents for permission- really old school I know lol but still meant a lot. He showed them the ring to make sure it was okay and all that

    Probably the fact that he was tearing up. he's not an emotional person so that meant a lot to me.

    My favourite part of my proposal was probably where I proposed.

    I chose to propose to my FH at the winter light show and now every year we can go and revisit it. I can just picture us going back there when we have children and can tell them about how Mommy proposed to Daddy Smiley xd
