Fortune Cookie Engagement

Recommended Posts

OK... I know this may not be the first engagement by a fortune cookie, but it's something I will never forget.


We got engaged on August 1st, 2009. My fiancee asked me to marry him via a fortune cookie. I was talking to him on the phone while he was driving over to visit. I asked him if he wanted me to throw a couple of steaks on the grill for dinner and he said that he felt like going to a Chinese restaurant for dinner. So, I picked a place close to my house that neither of us had been to before.


What I did not know is that my fiancee had this fortune cookie in his jacket pocket that he had specially ordered with a ring and fortune inside that said "XXXXX, Will You Marry Me". He also had the real engagement ring in his jacket pocket. His plans were to talk to the waitress and have her bring the fortune cookie to me at the end of the meal. But the restaurant was an open set-up, so he didn't get a chance to do pull her aside. At the end of the meal, we had our leftovers boxed up and went home.


When we got home he was said, let's open our fortune cookies. He was pushing me to open mine first, which I thought was strange. When I opened the fortune cookie, I noticed that the fortune had my name on it; it said "XXXXX, will you marry me" and had a ring in it. He had my real engagement ring in a separate box. My engagement ring is garnet with diamonds around it and the band (garnet is my birthstone and diamond is his). My fiancee says the thing he will remember most about that day is that about 30 minutes after he proposed, I asked him, “Did I say Yes?â€


I was so proud of him for pulling it off and surprising me!

    • 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?
