“I had proposed to my wife, but it wasn’t good at all. We are happily married, but who says I can’t do it again the way she deserves? So, here is our story from New Brunswick, Canada! (This video was a second surprise for her!)”
“Shot over a few weekends over the course of about 9 months with the help of friends and family, I proposed to my girlfriend Julie. Thanks to all the friends and family that helped me propose to Julie. I am truly impressed by everyone’s ability to keep this thing a secret over the past few months! And an extra special thank you to Kristina and Craig, who took my sprawling vision and made it a much more cohesive and grand story than I could’ve ever asked for.”
“Tiffany and I had always wanted to visit the Turks and Caicos islands, and we are fairly avid Scuba divers, so I thought it might be neat to propose underwater. I had to figure out how to do this safely (for both us AND the ring), and without her knowing it was coming. I put some thought into it, and eventually came up with the idea to write ‘WILL YOU MARRY ME?’ on my marker buoy (safety sausage, to Scuba folks) and tie the ring to the end of it, and then roll the whole thing up and attach it to my side. I was going to then put a small amount of air in it under water so that it would unroll and display both the message and the ring.
I waited until the end of the first dive, and then as we were about 60 feet down headed back towards the boat, I stopped her in the water and unrolled the buoy. It took a few seconds for her to look at it and figure out what was going on, but then, amidst a huge amount of bubbles, she enthusiastically nodded ‘yes!’ I untied the ring from the buoy and put it on her finger, and then we took our regulators out and kissed. Finally, we surfaced and went back to the boat, where everyone was waiting with applause. She had no idea it was coming. I am thrilled that I was able to make her so happy (and also that she said yes).”
“My sorority, Kappa Alpha Theta, has a tradition called a candle pass. We all go outside of our house and stand in a circle while we sing and pass the candle around. Once the candle is passed to the woman is who is engaged, she blows it out and then tells her engagement story.
I am graduating next Thursday, and this past Sunday was our last chapter meeting and last candle pass- my last ever as an active member. I had been complaining to my now fiance that I was bummed out that I would not have the chance to have a candle pass of my own. We had talked the night before he proposed about why it wasn’t the right time to get engaged, and he told me I needed to accept that and wait until he was ready. Of course, I was upset.
The next day, we were told that we had a candle pass, and all I kept thinking was, “I don’t even want to go out there to see who is engaged” because I was upset that it wasn’t me (and because I was being a brat). I decided to head out anyway, and we began singing and passing the candle. Once the candle came to me, I tried to pass it on to Katelyn, my grand-little sister, next to me, and she refused to take the candle. Everyone stopped singing, and I turned around to see my fiance, Cesar walking towards me. Then he got down on one knee and proposed in front of all of my sisters! Such a brave man! I am so blessed and excited to be engaged to my best friend!”
