How did your FS propose? Or were you the one who proposed? Share your story!

As for me, my DH proposed on Christmas Eve in 2016. The proposal itself was a complete surprise. I thought it would happen sometime later in 2017 based on conversations we had. On the day he proposed he took me to one of my favorite places in Napa for lunch then we went to a Christmas Eve service at the church we later got married in. Afterwards we stopped in one of the beautiful neighborhoods known for their Christmas lights and walked around looking at the lights. It was there on the way back to the car that he "dropped" his keys and ended up on one knee. I thought he was having trouble getting up so I kept pulling him but he wouldn't budge. That was when I saw him pull out the ring box. I was very surprised!

    On November 10, James and I went to Disneyland and I am a huge Disney freak but him, not so much. I get emotional very easily and when I saw that castle as soon as we entered Disneyland I was in tears. Throughout the day, James was so determined to watch fireworks and was so excited for it. 9 pm rolled around and we got a fantastic spot in front of the castle for the fireworks. They started going off and James was being adorable and kissing and hugging me and I was already crying because fireworks and castle haha! At one point he turned to me and said hey. And he got down on one knee and he asked if I would marry him and I was so emotional and I said yes and everyone around us was clapping and saying congrats. It was the best night of my life!

    Mine was also on Christmas Eve! He brought home Chinese takeout and we did our annual gift exchange with just the two of us. My last gift was a huge box, with a smaller wrapped box inside of it, and another, and another. The last box had a piece of paper that said "I was wondering what you were doing for the next 40-50 years?" (i'm a huge Rocky nerd and thats what Rocky said when he proposed to Adrian). Then he pulled the ring out and I was so excited I honestly don't even remember saying yes lol. Just us, our cat, and our PJ's- Exactly what I wanted.

    My proposal was awesome because all of the employees at Hollywood studios knew we were getting engaged. When we got to Hollywood studios that day my FH slipped away while I was in Disney world shopping heaven to plan with the park for the proposal. They were super excited because people do not often propose in their park. He arranged with them for us to have a special experience after a dessert party (hint hint yet I was clueless..I thought we happened to be chosen for this experience at random 馃槀) as well as for a personal photographer to be there to take pictures. The park themselves gave us extra fast passes for our whole trip and we got two lightsabers to take home with us. He then proposed during my favorite two movie scenes of the fireworks show. He even quoted the movies for me. It was perfect and I loved it. They went all out for us and we were so amazed with what they allowed us to do for our engagement trip.

    My fianc茅 proposed on 12/25/2018 at 1:36am.
    I was completely surprised because he had said he wanted to wait until after he was done with school.
    He wanted decided Christmas because December & Christmas time is hard for me and my family (we have a lot of family loss in December and it makes the holidays hard) so my fianc茅 wanted to make this Christmas special. (He originally wanted to propose at midnight when we got to my parents house but we didn鈥檛 make it there until after 1 in the morning)
    He also proposed where we first met (we met online so the first place we met in person was my parents house 3 years ago) It was an amazing moment and I am so happy my mom got it all on video 馃挋

    He proposed to me on Feb. 24th, 2018 (3 days before my 24th birthday) at a bar in downtown Pittsburgh. It may not sound romantic, but he did so in front of my mom and best friend (which meant the world to me and them). We also met in a bar, so the (cheesy) running joke... met in a bar, engaged in a bar, married in a bar(n), lol

    My FH proposed to me during a trip to France. We were sitting and talking out on the balcony of our AirBnB and it was our first night in Nice. He went inside to "get something" and when he came back he dropped to one knee and proposed! It was so private and special. Can't say I was 100% surprised because we had both talked about how this was a once in a lifetime trip for us and it would be a waste of an opportunity NOT to get engaged there. The day after he proposed he told me that he had actually tried proposing multiple times when we were in Paris the week before but he would either lose his nerve, or the attractions we were visiting were too crowded (duh, summer in Paris lol), or I had come down with a headache or stomachache and unintentionally foiled his plans. The memories from that trip will stay with me forever and I am always reminded when I look down at my ring

    So I鈥檝e decided I am going to start calling my fianc茅 by his name here. LOL. Rick proposed to me on our 6 year anniversary vacation at Disney world. I had no idea it was coming. I walked out of the room at our cabin and there he was on one knee. I just kept asking him what he was doing. LOL!

    He cooked us a nice, romantic dinner at home. I dressed in my new fancy dress and he dressed up too. Dinner was AMAZING. Afterwards we left and headed into Dallas to the Reunion Tower to overlook the city. We walked around inside for a little bit, then stepped onto the outside to overlook the city. I remember him telling "I may not be a rich man, but I'll always give you everything I have." The last thing I remember him saying was "...thats why I asked your daddy and he said yes. So..." and I saw him start to bend down on one knee and I instantly burst into tears and kinda blacked out a little in the sense I was crying and didn't hear every word he said. Although weirdly afterwards I remembered it word for word. 2 young girls and their mom was outside on the deck as well and they were freaking out haha and took a picture of us with their Polaroid. Afterwards we drove through Christmas light displays because it was one of my fondest childhood memories. 鉂

    May 2017 we took a weekend trip to Savannah, GA. We planned the trip just to get away. Our jobs were stressful at the time and we had just bought a house that was eating a lot of our sanity as well. I had a feeling it would happen soon since we had talked about marriage nearly every day at that point.

    After dinner we walked around the town and went down to River Street. We sat down on a bench over looking the river and there were boats passing in the harbor. It was an irregularly cold weekend and the wind was making my eyes water! FH went into his speech, which was more like a conversation between us, and he pulled the ring out of his pocket. It was really special! After that we went to a dueling piano bar and an older couple bought us a beer to celebrate. We're looking to go back to Savannah this spring for another weekend trip and to relive that memory 2 years later as husband and wife!

    My FH initially wanted to propose at V-Day dinner. He started talking about how two friends who got engage 1-2 months earlier didn't have a ring and it was very informal (they picked out the ring together later.) Well, to his subtle information pry, I said that informality didn't matter, but I'd like him to have a ring first.

    Move forward about 3 months. It's sunday morning and I ask him, "so what's our (financial) timeline." I meant housing and kids and stuff. He replied instead, "I was just thinking about this! I have the ring, what are we waiting for?"
