any interesting proposal/ wedding stories?

7 posts in this topic

me and my fiance are getting married in a year and we got engaged almost a year ago so we are starting to plan stuff out and it got me thinking if any body had any neat proposal or wedding stories.

i proposed to jen at my buddies grad party. he lives on a farm and it is were we first met, we first clicked when we were up in the woods shooting trap and handguns so i decided it would be a good spot to ask her to marry me, i carved a heart into the front of a tree with our initials and i carved marry me into the back side of the tree,

well we are at the grad party and a few people know about the proposal but not everybody so i am nervous, i finally work up the courage to do it so i ask her if she wants to go on a four wheeler ride, so we ride back into the woods and i stop in front of the tree and she thought my carving was very sweet but she would not get off of the four wheeler, finally i had to shut the thing off and make her go look at it, i told her there was one on the back side also, so we walked around and her eyes got wide and i got down on one knee and she said yes. it was pefect, funny thing is she knew i had bought the ring but she was totaly caught off gaurd.

Having been behind the camera at a bunch of weddings and after being married three times myself, I'm absolutely NOT going to comment on fishinchicks' blatant acknowledgment that it's all about manipulation! If I was prodded into making a comment, then I'd have been manipulated. No way! gringrin

bearbait, great way to ask her. Way to go, and the best of luck to you! gringrin

Marge and I had been together for about a year or so. We were on vacation. We had been camping on my family's land in Nebraska, then her family's land in Wisconsin (after an 11 hour drive, with a quick stop at Cabela's to buy an 1851 Colt Navy revolver), and then we finished it off at my buddy's cabin near Webster.

We were on the back porch. I had been waiting for just the right moment. Eventually, I realized that I just had to ask her.

"Hey, Marge, should we get married?"

"Sure. Yeah, let's get married."

So we did. Beautiful wedding, big party, the whole nine. It's been great so far. She's my best friend, and we got a good thing going.

Congratulations.

And yes... it's all part of the plan.

Notice the "man" in manipulation, think there might be a correlation? smirk

    • Lol at 3 I think I got a little time
    •   Please try and get her to know the difference as soon as you can!  Just saying.
    • You cant be serious, can you?  I think you got that backwards Dave, much like waiting until you become diagnosed  before you open your eyes to bad habits.   Hindsight is always 20/20, guys like you are the reason i take the measures i do now. Im not ripping on you for not knowing because its easy to become unaware of the damage your actually doing to yourself. Learning from others mishaps sticks a lot more than reading about some new trend.
    • Unfortunate your taxidermist could not do all three in a  nice natural  of setting because my guess is it was a female and her two kits. That's just judging from the pictures of course. Would have been a nice family photo, so to speak.
    • Thanks Big Dave. I looked through this stuff and really think a turkey hunt would be something different.  That Mexican bird would be a cool deal.   We will see, I have time!
    •       Because $$$$$$$$$....   You know, free speech and all that..
    • Why not get rid of the cozy relationship that the hospitals,insurance companies, medical device and drug suppliers have and open the market up to competition.    Prime example. You have sleep apnea. Go to the clinic and get a mandated sleep study in their room which costs about $4k for the night.  In an open market private companies could do this for a fraction of the price.   Once you test positive they give you a prescription to buy a machine at their facility and the cost ranges from $1600 to $3600.   You can buy the exact product online for $400-700. But the clinics and doctors don't want you buying there for obvious reasons.    Just one example buy this is what I would like to see changed.  
    • The Rum River is fun anywhere from St. Francis to Anoka. Probably fun north of there to, but I've never done it. It's been quite a few years since I've been on it, but was all no-wake and assume it still is so you don't have to worry much about big boats. 
    •     Why not pass a law that says politicians can't rake in more than 10 percent of the campaign costs of their highest third party competitor?....       wording
