Bridal Idea: The Proposal

Since the 4th year anniversary of my fiance and I is coming up in a few days, I have decided to share how he proposed to me the second time around.

During the first year of our relationship, back in 2010, my fiance has already proposed to me. It wasn't an ordinary way when he has proposed. I've also said yes to his proposal after a long conversation. However, since the proposal was made years ago, he has proposed to me for the second time last year as our wedding date is coming closer. The second proposal made me feel extra special and extra "kilig" (Filipino word for the feeling of butterflies in the stomach).

Proposing takes a lot of guts from a guy's part. First of all, no matter how much a girl loves a guy, proposing for marriage doesn't entail the girl will say yes. Marriage is another dimension. It takes a lot of courage to jump in to say yes and give your future to the one you love who you'll be spending forever with.

It was an ordinary day where we just met up to have dinner at the place where we had our first date, Highlands Steakhouse, since he was craving for steak. When I got to the restaurant, he first gave me a bouquet from Holland Tulips in memory of high school days that whenever the guys are courting girls, they gave them Holland Tulips.
I like the fluffy purple chrysanthemum!
I find the gesture really sweet because I was his high school crush although back in high school he never gave me flowers. Actually, he got busted when we were back in high school. It's just fate that brought us together again after 10 years.
This is me feeling like a high school girl with flowers from Holland Tulips.
The next surprise he gave me that night is a gold nugget. According to him, it's a fake gold nugget but I'll like what's inside.

A peek at what's inside! Hmm...Samsung!
It's a Samsung Galaxy Beam! Woot!!! :-D
I have been wanting to have a Samsung Galaxy Beam because of its projector. I love the idea of how I can watch movies in my room while lying and waiting for Mr. Sandman to throw some sand at me to sleep and dream.

After I've opened the gift, my fiance played a slide show video of our photos.

Look at the "beam" coming out from the phone.
At the end of the video, the question "Spend forever with me?" which made me teary eyed but I didn't want to cry because it's a happy moment. This time, he knelt down (he didn't kneel down the first time he asked because he was too nervous..hehe!:D) and asked me again to marry him. Without even a doubt, I answered a sweet "yes."
The ring (from Karat World) that changed my life! <3>
After the proposal! :) My fiance still looked so nervous here.
I really thank God for all the blessings He has given me and for giving me such a wonderful man in my life. From the moment I met my fiance, I knew he is the one. He makes me the happiest woman in the world every time I'm with him. Can't wait to spend forever with this guy! =)

For all the guys out there who's planning to propose, hope this story will inspire you. Good luck and enjoy the planning!
