Was your proposal in a sentimental location?

A lot of thought goes into proposing. Did your fiancé(e) propose somewhere that’s special to you as a couple? Was it where you went on your first date? Or the school where you met? Maybe even the place decided to have the wedding?

    No, it wasn’t a sentimental location.

    Yes. He proposed to me at his family’s cabin that’s been in their family since the 1930s. It’s a place we’ve been to so many times over the years we’ve been together. I love that we can always come back to it and our kids will get to experience it one day too!

    It wasn't sentimental at the time he proposed but it is now. We ended up getting married in the same park he proposed in.

    Yes, he took me to the lake that I’ve been going to since I was born. My family has had a cottage there for 40+ years.

    It was in our home.

    He told me the reason he picked our house was at the end of the day, it was always just the two of us, in our home with our dogs. He couldn't think of a better place to ask me to spend the rest of our lives with each other.

    Ours wasn't in a sentimental location, but it was at a cool new year's Eve event our town throws every year.

    Not really a sentimental location, just a nice "tucked away" (as tucked away as you can really be in downtown Chicago!) corner near the place where the Cubs had their victory rally. Smiley winking

    Nope. He said he was waiting so he could plan something...but then he didn’t. I’m just happy we’re engaged now.

    Yes. He picked one of my favorite spots on an island I have been vacationing on since I was a child. He fell in love with the island the first time I brought him and decided it was a perfect spot to propose.

    Not really sentimental or special.
    He asked while we were at Disney, which is my favorite place.
    I happened to ask to extend our trip to include New Years Eve and he was trying to figure out how to ask, so it all just fell perfectly into place 😊

    He proposed to me while we decorated our Christmas tree the ring box was tucked away in the tree. It was very sentimental ❤ and I'll cherish it forever; even though it took him a hot second to get the words out...and he was only on his knee for a second before he sprang up and almost tackled me as I said yes 😂
