hi Max! Because its set for friends only for privacy <so no one else can read it>, you have to add me as a contact or friend I think. ive tried everything else.
Hmmm I still can't post comments. How odd. I just sent you a private message instead.
hey guys was just looking through youtube and found a few good stories thought i might share
pretty cool ideas... hope it helps
Sorry to resurrect this old thread, but I just realised I didn’t let any of you know what happened!
Well, I flew to Los Angeles to pick up the ring. That all went perfectly to plan and the ring looked amazing. I flew back home, spent 2 days doing some final preparations and then it was the big day. It was also our 10 year anniversary too!
I set up a pretty gazebo tent thing for us in the park at a beach we often go to. I set up a nice table with chairs, nice picnic rug, good food and drink, rose petals on the ground etc. I had a friend from work come with his girlfriend to guard it all while I went and picked up my girlfriend. When we arrived she thought it was all amazing. And then the presents began... I’d written 20 notes to her, each one with something I love about her or something I’ll be/do for her. And with each note was a present. Throughout the day I gave her the presents one at a time. I gave her one saying that I love every moment we spend together, with a board game we both love as the present. For the note that said “I promise to always be your friend”, I gave her an engraved bracelet that said she’s my best friend. For the note that said: “I love and adore your family”, I had a nice photo frame with a photo of us and her family in it. For the note that said she inspires me to be a better person, I gave her a card showing I’d donated money to one of her favourite charities. For the note that said “I will always be loyal and faithful to you”, I gave her a pair of sapphire earrings (thanks to the person whose idea that was !!).
After a day of presents, eating nice food, and spending time together in our nice gazebo, she was quite overwhelmed. After I’d given her the final present I told her how much she means to me, how I want to spend my life protecting her, caring for her, providing for her and loving her. I got down on one knee, pulled out the ring and asked her to marry her. She was stunned and ecstatic at the same time, and without any hesitation at all said: yes! Followed by a lot of happy tears and a “we’re getting married!” Lol. She excitingly said we had to tell her parents. I explained that before I’d picked her up, I’d picked out some nice flowers to be sent to her parents house, along with a letter telling them how much she means to me, what I believe about marriage, that I was proposing to her, and that I hoped I had their blessing. She thought it was really nice and her parents thought the letter was lovely.
We were so excited. And my fiancée loved the ring. My fiancée still goes on about it 10 months later, lol. We’ve been very busy with wedding planning since all that, and in a few months time, we’ll be married! . I’m truly the luckiest guy in the world.
Thanks so much for all the help in here everyone. I appreciated it so much. You all got me thinking outside the box and you all, in some way, contributed to the final outcome. Special thanks to ImABeliever for all the help she gave me too! She put a lot of time and effort into helping me, and her advice was fantastic. I don’t know if you’re still around ImABeliever, but I’ve just sent you a PM. Just need a little help with some wedding related things if you’re available.
Thanks again everyone!
