It's generally seen as one of the most important conversations we will ever have, and to that end, we should strive to make "The Proposal" as memorable as we can.
Romance can be as simple as rose petals, and candles, it can be a walk up a mountain to see an awesome view, it can be a spur of a moment decision where you are gripped with such a feeling that you never want to let go this amazing person you have found.
You can go all out too, and have the proposal written in fireworks, or in a banner drawn by a small plane, or in the manner of a recent Scottish groom, on the cinema screen before the showing of "It's a Wonderful Life!
Celebrity's have had differing ways to propose. Michael Douglas made his proposal to Catherine Zeta Jones memorable through asking her to marry him at the Eve of the Millenium. It was a discreet proposal, balanced very nicely by the huge diamond he gave her.
I personally like recently married, Pier's Morgans approach, where he whisked his girlfriend to Paris and whilst there, presented her with a 1st Edition copy of her favourite author, John Updike's book "Marry Me".
For me personally, I was the one that proposed, quite romantically, I thought!
My proposal to my husband was on the 23rd of August 2003, and was on Tower Bridge in London. I was going to do it on the London Eye, but got the wobbles as I'm scared of heights, and wimped out.
It didn't really go so well as I got turned down, but that is the chance you have to take when laying your heart on the line, its a monumental and life changing decision. Luckily for him, he soon realised what he would be missing, and 6 years later we couldn't be happier.
