Every girl dreams of the day when the man she loves will take a knee and ask for her hand in marriage. It’s something that many have dreamed of since since they were very young.
Some women want the over the top proposal and others want something simple and heart felt. Regardless of what your dream proposal is, I think we can all appreciate the time and effort a man named Isaac put into popping the questions. Check out the video and have the tissues on stand by.
OMG!!!! Seriously?!?!?! I’ve watched it 3 times and had tears and goose bumps. Isaac Lamb used roughly 60 friends to pop the question to his girlfriend Amy this past week in Portland, Oregon. She of course said yes. I mean who wouldn’t?
I’ve been engaged twice. Neither of those engagements led to marriage. Both proposals were very different. The first was pretty lame if you ask me. He and I were shopping at the mall when we just went to look at rings. We found a beautiful ring, I tried it on, and he said I’ll take it. The he looked at me and said so we’re engaged. Ummmmm….where was the speech? More importantly why wasn’t he down on one knee? And my God he didn’t even ask me to marry him. He bought the ring and that was good enough for him. That should have been clue number one it wouldn’t work!
The second proposal was more traditional. He took my grandmother who raised me out to Amelie’s in NODA to ask for her permission. A few weeks later he took me to dinner and got on one knee in front of the entire restaurant. He had a romantic speech and all. Unfortunately, I was in such shock I don’t remember what exactly was said. The second one definitely was much better than the first.
As I said above, neither engagement worked out. Should there be a third time, I would hope the guy goes the traditional route. If he wants to rent a plane to write it in the sky or gather his friends for an over the top proposal, that’s fine by me. I just need to speech, the knee, and the question. As long as he can hit the mark with those three requirements it would be perfect!!!
What kind of proposal would you prefer? Over the top or a more intimate one?
