Though it's not the most important part of a relationship, a proposal of marriage is certainly a memorable event. These married or engaged couples shared their unique proposal stories, though some went a bit smoother than others! Isn't love beautiful?
"So before my fiancee and I started dating, we were really close friends and both casually seeing other people. We went to Disneyland with a couple of other friends, which we did often. One particular night, we weren't having a ton of fun, until our friends had to leave early, making it just my (now) fiancee and I at Disneyland together. We ended up having a blast, just the two of us, and we ended up going through Sleeping Beauty's castle on our way out, just before the park closed.
We were the only ones in there, reading each of the 'story' sections in ridiculous voices and generally being goofy. But when we got to the end where you see the prince kiss Sleeping Beauty, we just kind of lingered for a long time before leaving. We talked about that night again after we'd been dating for a few months, and it turned out that we were both dying to kiss the other one at that moment.
So fast forward about three years, and my fiancee and I plan another Disneyland day with his parents, his brother, and some of our friends (again, something we do often). We went through the castle again, because lines were long, and no one else ever goes in there. So once we get to the end, he turns to me and says, 'Hey, remember when we totally wanted to kiss here and we didn't do it?' I laughed and said yeah. He got down on one knee, pulled out a ring and said, 'Um.. do over?'
For some reason I couldn't even believe it and I think I said, 'Seriously?' with a big grin on my face like four times. In retrospect, I should've seen it coming, based on the fact that he decided to dress particularly nice to Disneyland and had to go back into the house right before we left to 'get something.' But I didn't see it coming at all and it was amazing. Our wedding is in September and planning is crazy, but I'm excited! (Source)
