The Big Question

Nathan and I first met when I was sixteen and he was eighteen. The night he proposed we were going out for dinner to celebrate our seventh anniversary, so some would say it was a long time coming but it was a total surprise!
His parents picked up and gave us a lift to the restaurant but we were early so we went for a drink in a nearby bar and Nathan spent most of the time in the toilet but I didn't think anything of it. Eventually, we went around to the restaurant, which was really expensive so I wasn't sure if I should order wine. Much to my surprise a bottle of champagne was brought over. Still nothing clicked. Nathan returned to the toilet again! soon I would find out that this was because the ring box was too big for his trouser pocket so he had been moving it around so I wouldn't notice.
We began drinking the champagne and looking through the menu when Nathan started this speech about being together for seven years, he sat back in his seat and reached into his pocket. It all just clicked! He came around the table and got down on one knee. The tears rolled down my face with happiness, I was thrilled and obviously said Yes!
When I asked why he had chosen that moment he said he wouldn't be able to eat his dinner if her had waited till dessert.
There were lots of lovely things that went on behind the scenes; Nathan had the ring custom made locally and had taken my mam out to ask her permission before. However, I wasn't happy that he let me go out in a new dress that was £19.99!

A Big Question

Brian proposed to me on a hot air ballooning trip that he booked. I wanted to go for a hot air balloon ride my entire life! When the balloon had reached peak height, Brian grabbed my hand and said, “This is completely amazing. The only thing that would make it better would be if you (as he reached into his pocket and pulled out a diamond ring)…” Before he could finish asking the question, the ring slipped from his fingers and fell over the side of the basket. Both of us were flipping out! For about two minutes Brian carried on shouting things like, “What town are we over? What are the coordinates?”… Finally, he reached in a small compartment in the balloon basket and pulled out another ring saying, “good thing I packed a back-up!”.  I screamed with relief and because I wanted to kill him. Long after the ring was on my finger, I still hadn’t said yes. I figured I needed to make him sweat after putting me through that. We were engaged before we landed!

The Proposal

Ant and I have birthdays that are 4 days apart.  We had been looking at houses, and made plans to sign paperwork on one the day after Ant’s birthday. We both went to work (or so I thought) and met afterwards at the realtor’s office. I thought we were late to meet his parents for a belated birthday dinner, so when we left I was distracted and focused on getting home to change, and I thought Ant was in the car right behind me. When I got home, there was a sign on the door – telling me to go inside and take a walk down memory lane. When I walked inside, our song was playing – candles were burning, and there were pictures of us everywhere. There were three notes along the way – talking about our relationship - where we’d been and where we are going. I barely processed any of it! The last note said “so you might be laughing, or maybe crying, or probably both…but I need you to focus!” (he knows me so well) and gave me directions on where to meet him.  He was down by the water at Chaffinch Park in Guilford…a place we refer to as “ours”….it was low tide and he was out at the edge of the rocks waiting for me with the most beautiful ring.  I’ll never forget how nervous he looked, or how happy I was! I could not have asked for a more perfect proposal. We had plenty of time to celebrate just the two of us –  but since it was “birthday week”  we already had plans to see all of our close friends and family, so we got to celebrate with everyone right away!
