The Good Old Amusement Park Proposal [Pic]

Submitted by: fancylad 4 years ago

What do you think, I-A-B? Is the wacky wedding proposal cool or is it something that dull guys do to overcompensate?

Just think about her reaction - "c`mon, let`s take a look at the picture!" They go to look at the log ride photo, and bam - something she TOTALLY wasn`t expecting, done in a way she could never see coming, and probably in a place like Disneyland where things are supposed to be romantic and fantastical anyway. I say this will be the most memorable photo of her life.

This was when France was hosting the World Cup. A short time after I proposed a group of teens walked by singing this kooky French song we like. It was awesome.

"@Markust: Wow. Now *that* is romantic. ~Squrlz tips an invisible squirrel hat in Markust`s direction~"

Thanks Squrlz. It was such a perfect moment. I wasn`t able to get the proposal translated until three days before our trip. Not a lot of time to learn it but somehow I knocked it out of the park. When the Champagne arrived for his birthday toast I said, "Can I make a birthday toast in French?" I don`t really speak French very well so it took him back when I said fluently, "I want to make your 25th birthday the most romantic. After only a few short years I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you." It hit him what I was doing with those last words. I`d been wearing my grandpa`s wedding ring on my left hand for a while and that day I had the ring I bought on. I dropped to my knee and said in French again, "I beg of you to marry me." He said Oui. And we drank lots of champagne.

"you do seem a bit too concerned about how you`ll look when you get engaged"

Lavish.
Private.
Personal.
Which one of those was describing my appearance?

"you don`t apreciate the man, you don`t deserve him."

After the years of dating, if he can`t figure out I would hate this, he doesn`t appreciate or deserve me. But don`t worry, any guy I would consider dating wouldn`t ever consider this appropriate anyway.

"I think FredSpudman said it best: Different things for different people. For me (and Leesah, I think) this just looks too much like a fraternity prank for it to be the way I`d want to start a lifelong journey with someone. "

Did you just propose to leesah? That`s so awesome - i wish you two the best of luck!

I love it! I think it`s stupid to think this is "something a dull person does to overcompensate". I can understand if this isn`t how you want your engagement to happen. But if you`re with someone who proposes to you like this and you find it stupid, then you`re an idiot for being with that person in the first place.

"I know what I want, if you think I`m stuck up you`re obviously not what I want. Good luck pursuing someone who keeps the bar a little lower. ;]"
you are stuck up leesah, you`re more concerned with your apearance and symbols of wealth then the fact that somebody loves you enough to marry you, and is trying to be original/funny/ unexpected, whatever. you don`t apreciate the man, you don`t deserve him.

I think the people naysaying this might not be mindful of the possibility that it could be a joke, or that it`s the sort of thing that Lindsay would go for and as such it`s quite a considerate thing to do. Different people like different things, leesah would like some solid carbon to show when she`s engaged, but I think that tacky. Different things for different minds.

Oh, and leesah, you can`t deny that with this way you`re guaranteed a picture of the luvverly moment.

jesus leesah..are you always riding your cotton pony. This I think is cute. and refreshing from standard proposals. The guy wanted it to be unexpected :) I don`t see how this could`ve gone wrong. Imagine this guy waiting for the pictures to print haha

Leesah, you do seem a bit too concerned about how you`ll look when you get engaged which isn`t really the main concern. That said, I`d hate something like this, a proposal should be between me and my boyfriend, not the whole world and certainly not his mates

"Why so serious?"

Are amusement parks the only place to get engaged that isn`t "serious"? My engagement will be lavish and personal and extremely private, because that`s what I like. One day people will see me and I`ll have a huge diamond on, that`s how they`ll know. Not from a tacky Disneyland tourist photo.

don`t you think if they were dull they wouldn`t be doing this? it`s more fun than the standard on one knee at some fancy restaurant.

"Do you think that`s how she wants to remember her wedding proposal? Dressed in plain clothes on an amusement park ride, totally oblivious while his buddies hold up signs?"

Why so serious? I`d rather be proposed to in a casual way when we`re having fun together, personally. I think things like this are cute.

"leesah is stuck up."

I know what I want, if you think I`m stuck up you`re obviously not what I want. Good luck pursuing someone who keeps the bar a little lower. ;]

I proposed to my boyfriend, in French, on his 25th birthday, sitting at a cafe on the Champs Elysees in Paris.

Definitely something dull guys do to overcompensate. Do you think that`s how she wants to remember her wedding proposal? Dressed in plain clothes on an amusement park ride, totally oblivious while his buddies hold up signs? I`d say no immediately. He could try again the right way and we`d pretend this never happened.

Very creative. If she says "No", though, it f@cks up everyone`s day!

The look on her face there is probably the same as it was when she saw the picture.
