I was watching a news report last night about a man in China who proposed to his girlfriend dressed as a dancing carrot, along with 48 others dressed the same way accompanying him with his dance moves.
The good news is, he got out of the carrot outfit before getting down on bended knee. And she said yes. (Brave woman, no?)
When Hubby and I became engaged, it was pretty low key. We were at home. There was no bended knee, no candlelight and certainly no dancing vegetables were involved.
And it was perfect.
I'm not in to the big, grand gesture when it comes to marriage proposals. I'm not saying no one should have them - they're just not for me.
I've known people who have proposed on bended knee in the middle of a busy restaurant. Some have proposed, or been to proposed to, on the beach of a tropical island. One guy I worked with years ago proposed to his girlfriend via a banner dragged behind a small aeroplane.
None of which would be my style. (Well, except perhaps for the tropical beach. So long as there was no bended knee and no crowd of people to witness it!)
It's not that I'm not romantic. I think I am. But perhaps I'm too much of a realist (the cost of some of these proposals? BIG waste of money in my mind), and I'm a definite fan of not planning too much. To me, the impromptu proposal done on a whim late at night in your own home is as equally, if not more, romantic to me as a well planned one.
But we're all different. Much blessings to the carrot man and his bride-to-be.
If you're married, what was the proposal for your own marriage like? Did it live up to your expectations? Exceed them? If you're not married or engaged yet, what kind of proposal would you like to receive or carry out?
