Today an anthology of wedding stories titled “Matrimonial Mayhem” being released from AstraeaPress. All of the proceeds are going to benefit the victims of the tornadoes in the Southern United States. One of those stories was written by yours truly. It’s a snippet of the Dragon’s Saga. I won’t spoil too much of it, but let’s just say there’s a rather unique sort of proposal. To go along with that theme, I’ve decided to write up a blog about…unique proposals. Enjoy the cute and the bizarre!
One lucky commenter to all of the blogs in this blog hop will win a e-copy of my YA Romance/Fantasy novel Legend of the Oceina Dragon! And much, much, MORE! This is running through Sunday, May 15th!
I absolutely love this video. I think if you’re going to watch one video on this post, this would be it. It is by far the most romantic thing I have ever seen!
Here is Kim Bowman’s story:
“My husband, Tony, spent roughly $5 in one of those bubble gum style machines to get me a ring. We had just ate dinner and I was sitting in a recliner in his living room.
He knelt in front of me and ask, “Do you love me?”
”Yes, of course I love you.”
He pulled his hand from behind his back and dropped the plastic bubble holding the play ring in my lap. “Enough to marry me and spend the rest of your life with me?”
How could I say no to that! He told me later that he wanted us to pick out our rings together. I love my wedding rings, but I wouldn’t take a million dollars for the plastic one that he proposed with:)”
From Oddee.com: Graciela Asturias, a 27-year-old architect from Manhattan, got a very unique birthday present when her now fiancé proposed to her a thousand feet above the ground while floating in an airplane cabin.
To celebrate Asturias’ birthday, the couple boarded a specially designed Boeing 727 aircraft that creates the experience of microgravity during four-five minute plunges as it flies up and down between 24,000 and 35,000 feet, allowing the passengers to experience a near zero gravity effect. While Alex and Graciela were floating in the cabin, Alex popped the question. Alex was a bit worried that while in zero G, the ring might float away but luckily everything worked out. Graciela not only received a great birthday presentbut they experienced an amazing proposal, a love so strong, unbound by gravity itself.
The couple plan on spending their ten year anniversary in orbit.
This is definitely mind blowing.
My personal proposal story is a bit quirky. My now husband was coming to pick me up to go out for some lunch. He had set the ring box on the passenger seat and promptly sat right on top of it.
“You’re sitting on something.” He tells me.
“I know.” I reply. I pull out the box and stare it, and I’m pretty sure I know what’s going on here.
“You’re supposed to open it.”
“I know.” And I do so, put on the ring, and we drive off for lunch. Nearly twenty minutes pass before he finally asked me the question.
“Will you marry me?”
I believe I said something like this:
“I’m already wearing the ring, duh.”
