Mt Antigua Proposal!

Recommended Posts

Before I tell you my proposal story I would firstly like to tell you a little about my H2B and I. We are both 22 and have been together since we were 15 years old. He is the most amazing man and we are just beginning our wonderful life together!We bought our first home together in May 2007 and have a 2 year old Rottweiler called Simba who is our little baby!


My H2B has never been the most romantic person but he does try. He is motorbike mad and is forever spending money (you will see why I am telling you this later!) Everybody knows that this drives me insane.

I had always dreamed of visiting Antigua and had even thought about one day getting married there. I had always told H2B this but didn't really think he had taken it in but whilst on a carribean cruise in January with family he chose the day we were in Antigua to ask me to be his wife!!


Once we had departed the cruise ship we all took a taxi and were taken to long bay beach. He had been acting funny all morning but I thought nothing of it. Once we had got settled in our loungers he stood me up in front of everybody. Then his step mother had her Ipod docked on speakers and started playing a Luther Vandross song in the background who I loooove by the way.


He started by saying he knew he wasn't romantic enough and had written me a poem!! I started crying straight away like a big girl!! He had written the poem himself and read it out quite quickly because he is so nervous! Here it is


I love you because you are true, only we will ever know

I thought I'd write a poem so that I could tell you so.


We have our family, Simba & the bike lives in the kitchen

Spending money is my hobby, you know I'm always itching!


I hope you love this holiday, especially today

I've wrote these words on paper, just in case I couldn't say


I have been making plans without you, I hope you didn't mind

Antigua was the place you loved & now it is our time


Well here we are with family, the beach, the sky, the sand.

I wondered if you would accept this ring and also take my hand.


Susan will you marry me??

We had the most amazing day and then we all had a lovely meal in the evening back on the ship! They has even made us an engagement cake!!


Hope you like my story!

Thanks Everyone, my fiance hates me telling people the story but I just love it!

KarenM we have since decided to get married in Mexico, we are looking at Riviera Maya in March/April 2011. Antigua was just far too expensive for all our guests and I want lots of people to be able to come so we decided on Mexico. Also the fiance hates sitting by the pool/laying on the beach all day and I don't think their is much else you can do in Antigua so I thought Mexico was the better option.

Well Mexico is certainly a fab option, but I might be just a tad biased. wink.gif

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
