    A Wedding Proposal...

    Question: What would be your ideal setting for a wedding proposal? Give as much details as you can.

    It would depend on the man. A romantic setting & moment is always good.

    My late partner rushed in on me when I was seated for dinner at his place, dropped to his knees and presented an engagement ring! He was so flustered and cute, blurting out his proposal, just like the stereotypical straight guy with a woman. He actually said: "Will you marry me?" I had to say yes.

    My current partner, on the other hand, gave me an offhand "I think you should move in here" over his shoulder while he was on the computer, me standing behind him. I've got to work on his technique. icon_biggrin.gif

    I don't really care, anywhere is fine with me. As long as he is willing to pop the question, on his knees at a booth at White Castle will make me happy.

    Doesn't matter to me either, would just be super happy to hear it.

    Although, would love to be cuddled up together, and have them just whisper softly in my ear in their own words.

    For me, it would be holding hands and strolling through Piazza San Marco in Venice.

    It would be while on vacation on the beach as the sun sets. I wish it could happen, but I don't think in my life time. I don't want to do it unless it is legal everywhere in the US.

    I'd prefer just a marriage proposal. And I'd want the marriage to equal the proposal. Quiet, nondescript and without any legal documentation. No ceremony. The only thing I want to bind me to a man and bind a man to me is internal will. If ever that disappears on either side then it does. And that's it. So in retrospect, no marriage under any conventional definition.

    On a beautiful beach at night under a full moon. After walking for a bit we find a a giant waterfall , surrounded by lush trees and vegetation with an opening in the canopy to let the full moons light in to reflect off the water. Then him dropping to one knee and asking my the question.

    This was a dream I had years ago. I know its beyond corny and cheesy but I liked it.

    txbob, If it is your dream it isn't corny. It sounds very romantic.

    That's really interesting, Ciarsolo, because you're describing us (Bill and I) for our first 20 years.

    the proposal should come from him, i dont want to decide how i'm proposed to. but something unique would be fun.

    if i were to propose i would rent a place on a beach and before he woke up i would positions rocks on the beach that said "I love you, will you marry me" and he would see it when he went on the balcony to get the breakfast i made him. ^_^

    I was married in Canada. It wasn't planned. The ceremony was small, lasted a few minutes, and cost us practically nothing. No rings, no family ... just the minister, her dogs, and a couple of friends as witnesses. We hit the slopes immediately after exchanging vows, and that was the end of it. It was absolutely perfect.

    This thread got me thinking that maybe it's time to give my bitch a ring. Perhaps I'll take him to Tiffany's in the next week or two and buy him some ridiculously overpriced platinum. icon_smile.gif

    My brother proposed to his wife on a fancy cruise after an amazing meal. Brought her to the front of the ship titanic style and proposed to her at a setting sun...

    I harass my brother about this monthly.

    I'd be the one proposing in my marriage.I already have it planned. One day i will take him for a walk through the snow and look at snow men by the neighbours house. One will hold a cardboard sign that say, "[Insert name], will you marry me!".
    He will laugh and say that some girl is proposing to her boyfriend and say "That's so sweet". And I'll stop and take out a ring. He won't notice until he realizes I'm not by his side. When he looks back, I'll be standing there with the ring.

    frankly, to me, there's a HUGE difference between a proposal for marriage and a wedding proposal. A wedding is a party, a marriage of life.
