moon light and a little sparkle - tvt's proposal story

Recommended Posts

I'm starting our website and finally wrote out our engagment story and thought I'd share with you all!

 

I go to Florida numerous times a year for work and always bug Joe about coming with me. One time it worked out perfectly and Joe decided to come with. We went for a long weekend and were pretty busy touring hotels and the city the entire time. Everyday we kept saying "tonight we'll go out to the beach, we have to make it there before we leave". Each night it didn't happen. So finally it was our last night there. We were both ready to go home but knew we had to get to the beach before we left. So we grab some beers from the lobby bar and head towards the sand. It's pitch black out at this point and we can't really see where the path is that goes to the beach. So we decide to sit on a bench just before the sand and enjoy our beers and the sound of the ocean rolling in. Joe starts talking about how we've been dating for a long time, how perfect we are together and I'm sitting there going "yup, yup, I know" thinking that he's just being his usual cheesy self. Then all of a sudden he's on one knee and holding up something that is catching the moon light and sparkling. Then he asks "will you marry me" I start hysterically laughing saying "are you kidding me?!" he's like "uh, no. so will you marry me" me "yes, yes, of course i will" He puts the ring on me and I cannot stop laughing, and hugging and kissing him. Then I say "we have to go back to our room! I need to see this ring... and call my parents!"

YAY TARA!!! I'm so glad you posted your story! Haha, you're so funny... I love that you were laughing - lol and that you had to go back to the hotel so you could see it!!

 

Was he waiting for you two to go to the beach to propose, or was he going to do it on that night regardless?

That's a good question!! I know he had the ring before we went to FL, and I think he had something else planned, but then when FL came up he decided to do it on the beach because it's perfect for the two of us.

 

I think otherwise he was going to do it at the bar we met at! Ha, that would've been even funnier!

Oh Tara! That's so exciting and fun! I love it! And I really think it's cute how it sparkled in the moonlight.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
