Wow. Talk about an amazing response! You may recall we held a proposal stories competition at the beginning of April. Never in a million years did we expect to receive this many beautiful proposal tales, and each and every one blew us away.
Unfortunately, there can only be one winner. After whittling down the entries to our Top 10, arguments were on the horizon as the Bride & Groom team tried to pick just one winner.
This meant only one thing. Open the vote to our wonderful Brides to be!
Below you will see two boxes. The first is the box where you can read each of the Top 10 stories (chosen by us!). After picking your favourite, you can then go on to the second box and vote for your winner.
The voting will close on Sunday 18th May and the winner will be announced on Monday 19th May 2014.
Please be warned: Some will make you laugh and some will make you cry! Enjoy.
This is her beautiful story of an engagement in... (I won't spoil it!)
For my 21st birthday, my partner handed me a beautiful pink box. When I opened it there was a big red cooking apple sitting in amongst loads of paper. I was really confused as to why he had bought me an apple. For a second I actually thought he had bought me a micro pig! He told me if I was confused that I would have to look further into the pink box. When I got to the bottom of it, there was a sheet of paper. It was booking confirmation for the two of us to go to New York with a little booklet. I could not believe it! It was where I had always dreamed of going.
A few months later we were in New York. My partner knew I had always wanted to go and that the one sight I really had to see was The Statue of Liberty. We walked around it completely amazed. It was breath-taking! As we had almost finished walking around the statue my partner turned to me and said 'I have to speak to you, come take a seat'. Everything ran through my head at this point. I even thought he was going to break up with me or tell me he had met someone else. My heart was pounding (God knows how he must have felt). I took the seat and when I looked up there he was - On one knee, box opened showing a beautiful diamond ring and right under The Statue of Liberty!
Safe to say I said yes and instead of staying on the Island at the Statue, we caught the ferry and went back to call our families.
Everyone back home knew what was happening and I hadn't the faintest idea!
Since then, we have moved into our own house and also welcomed our first Daughter Mia into the world. We are getting married in February 2016 so our daughter will make the perfect flower girl!
