Now this isn’t me, but a friend of mine who’s a singer proposed by writing and singing a sing he wrote for her, in front of family and friends at a coffee house she runs for her church group (he performed there often, so it wasn’t very obvious what he was doing, but she found out before hand) but he wrote a break into the song where he got down on one knee and proposed. It was actually really sweet, and the song was amazing.

I think a lot of people are opting to include friends and family these days, as opposed to just the one on one proposal.

We were at a concert at the Greek Theatre, a wonderful open air amphitheater venue in Griffith Park, Los Angeles. Nickel Creek (who I like very much) had just concluded their opening set and it was intermission with Vince Gill due up next (who I know little of). We went to one of the beverage service booths on the hill and found a nice quiet spot. Well I guess all the fresh air and wine and the fact that I new little of Vince Gill overcame me because I looked her in the eye and proposed to her. She said yes and asked when. I said now , so we caught the next available flight to Las Vegas. We were married the next morning. It was a heck of a way to avoid seeing Vince Gill, don’t you think?
(Just kidding about being overcome by the fresh air and wine, but I still know little of Vince Gill other than he’s a popular country/western singer. My wife passed away a couple of years after we married. She was only 41 years old).

I did that at a 5 star restaurant in the middle of nowhere in the hills built into the side of it looking at a great view. The ring was served in the middle of a desert tray that came out on a cover silver platter. surrounded by rose peddles, her favorite desert spelling, “will you marry me?”

My cat had just had kittens and we were trying to figure out what to name the kitten we were keeping. My now husband pulled me into his lap and said we should name her Marry Me. It was so sweet.

@kimberlyB-that’s pretty funny and kind of cute. Welcome to Fluther.

@whatthefluther-spontaneous wedding, I honestly think that that’s the most romantic, not really thinking about anyone else, just the love you have for each other, I’m sorry to hear about her passing though, I hope the time you had together was wonderful.
