We got engaged in Niagara Falls in November by the Christmas lights. We went for a late night drive to the falls (we live about 20 mins away) we drove along the falls boulevard and up Clifton hill (which is where we had our first date) then he drove past some other memorable places in Niagara Falls and ended up parking in a lot looking above the falls and the Christmas lights. We got out of the car (even though it was 1am and -4 Celsius out) and walked a bit by the trees we stood looking at the lights and we was hugging me from behind. I told him I wanted to go back to the car he told me to wait a few more minutes then I turned around and he was going down on one knee (in the snow) and asking me to marry him. 😍
We got engaged on my parents boat on the ocean off the coast of Vancouver Island! We make a trip out there every year, but this time we were finally able to bring my stepsons...my parents and the boys were included in the engagement and it was so freaking amazing! I wouldnt change a thing!
We got engaged in our kitchen at home. FH is very shy and not a big people person. He had just come home after 2 weeks away and work and we were opening all of his parcels he got while he was gone and I was complaining that I dont get any mail and he was like "well what if I have something for you?" then he went upstairs and when he came back down i was dancing around the kitchen in my jammies holding our cat and he said to me very seriously "put the cat down" and then he asked! It was perfect for us. We love our house, I love being in my jammies and we are always in the kitchen haha.
We got engaged at Niagara Falls. It was my first time there and the first time meeting my father in law and step mother in law. The main reason for doing it there is because we just picked up the engagement ring in Mississauga and my now husband really wanted to propose and give me the ring. It was just beautiful.
We got engaged in an escape room. One of favorite group things is to do escape rooms 😊 so it was perfect. My favorite singer is Emilie Autumn & she wrote an album and a book about an insane asylum; the room we did was asylum themed & the speech my fiancé prepared had a bunch of Emilie's song titles in it, everyone also wore striped socks (it's another reference to the book). It was perfect & I had some of my closest people there.
We were dating for about a year when we made a trip back home to see my family & before getting in the car after visiting my now ex step dad, he stayed behind to have a "chat" & asked for his permission. After that I waited & waited for him to pop the question, but months went by & nothing. Thought I imagined the whole thing. Then 2 years later we went to the park nearby to take our pregnancy announcement (his friend came with us to take the pictures) & he finally did it! I was beyond surprised lol
We got engaged in Lake Louise at the Big Beehive Lookout - no special meaning except that we both love the mountains. Unfortunately we couldn't see them that morning through all the fog but it made us feel like we were in our own little world.
