the happy couple, January 22nd, 2005
Not that our wedding wasn't perfect for us. We laughed through the ceremony and made fun of everything about each other in our vows. Still, seeing Dani's wedding pictures and hearing her stories got me thinking about what our wedding would have been like if we would have had one and actually invited people to it. And THAT got me thinking about our proposal.
It was the least romantic thing I've ever done and quite possibly the most romantic thing I've ever done as well because romantic I am not. And yet, paradoxically, I am obsessed with other people's romance and love stories, vintage wedding gowns and "happily every after"s.
Without fail, every time I see a wedding photo or hear about a proposal I sob uncontrollably. I AM SO MOVED! How it's possible for one to LOVE weddings and not desire to have one for herself, to ADORE proposals but gag at the thought of being proposed to, I do not know. But here I am and that is me.
Anyway! What I've been (slowly) getting at this entire time is the following playlist of wedding proposal videos, all of which I've sobbed through 78178239 times. SO. Without further ado, grab your Kleenex box and join me in five, four, three...
You're SOBBING, right?
...And now I'd love to hear about YOUR proposals. How did you (or your significant other) propose? I'm especially interested in hearing from ladies who did the proposing. I was kind of bummed I was unable to find exceptional women-proposal-vids. Call me new-fashioned but why should dudes get all the orchestrate-a-proposal-fun? Which brings me to ANOTHER question: If you're in a hetero relationship, how would your man feel about you proposing to him?
Also, to make up for Hal's man-boob comment here is a very hot picture of him playing his guitar the summer we met/got pregnant/moved in together. ED: The man-boob thing was totes an illusion, obvy.
