I believe that I had a completely traditional, „every girl’s fantasy” proposal. My husband and I had only been dating a month. We were completely in love and knew we wanted to be together forever, but marriage was never even discussed…it didn’t have to be.
On the 4th of July, we, along with 5 of our friends, went to a fireworks festival, and after we had all settled down to watch the show, he grabs me and tells me that there’s a better spot higher on this hill.
So, he takes me under a HUGE oak tree, holds my hands and stares at me while the fireworks are going off in the background, and all our friends were 15 feet away, watching everything (turns out that everyone knew but me). He starts telling me how much he loves me, and then don’t you know that this boy drops to one knee and takes out a ring.
There was a HUGE crowd because of the fireworks show, along with news and radio announcers covering the event. Everyone started clapping and screaming for us, and before I knew it, the fireworks were finished, and we were engaged.
Tomorrow is our one year anniversary, and we couldn’t be happier. If you’re going to pop the big question, make sure you make it an event to remember for the rest of your life.
You’re only going to do it once.
