Little Things Favors welcomes 2013 and all the new wedding favors coming our way! The holiday season may be over, but the most wonderful time of the year is when most wedding proposals happen – and we wanted to hear your stories!
We asked our readers and Facebook fans to tell us their proposal story, regardless if it happened during the holidays or not. We had a great time reading all the awesome stories posted to our Facebook page! Check out these marriage proposals if you need some inspiration for proposal ideas!
Some stories made us laugh, like the one Meagan M. from FL told: she she she was so excited she never even actually said yes, just squealed with excitement and jumped up and down – almost falling off the edge of her and her fiance’s favorite hiking spot into the lake below! Lindsay K. from NY said her exact words for the rest of the night after being proposed to were “this sh*t cray!” Rezzma N. from AL‘s story made us giggle too: her 5 month old daughter was present when her fiance proposed, and happened to pass gas right as she said yes!
Other stories made us want to cry, like Jessica L. from OH‘s. Right before her grandfather passed, he told her now-fiance to “hold onto her tight.” The day before his funeral, she was proposed to under the stars. That wasn’t the only story that hit our soft spot. Diane H. from DC and Kirsten B. from NZ both proved that proposals don’t need to be over the top to be sentimental: each has been with their significant other for more than 10 years and still managed to get emotional even when he didn’t get down on one knee. And we can’t forget about the guy who proposed to Penny W. from OK – out of all the stories we read, he was the only one to show his sensitive side by crying during his proposal!
Some guys really went above and beyond when it came time to propose to their girls! Lisa S. from NC had to complete an entire scavenger hunt before finally seeing the ring. Julia C. from NJ‘s man proposed to her right after jumping out of a plane – they even have the skydiving video to prove it! And we absolutely loved Melinda B.‘s story: she was on a tour of pitch-black caves in Bermuda, and her fiance put the ring on her finger in the dark. “It was the perfect public but private proposal,” she says.
Many guys kept it simple yet sweet when it came time to pop the question. Stephanie S. from OR, a die hard football fan, was at a game with her beau when he proposed. Melissa W. was touched when her fiance proposed late in the night when they were finally home alone after a dinner date. Brigid M.‘s fiance surprised her after she performed in an off-broadway show, and Candice S. was asked at a secluded waterfall after a long hike. Some guys, like Courtney E. from MA‘s fiance, popped the question in front of the entire family. Hannah S. from MO was playing a game of hangman with her fiance created the phrase “marry me.” How adorable!
Thank you everyone who shared their stories! We loved the diversity of each one: it didn’t matter if one proposal was simple or another was over the top – they were all absolutely romantic in their own way!
