You don’t need fireworks, a flash mob or the Eiffel Tower to make a marriage proposal special. In fact, sometimes it is the more spontaneous, spur of the moment, low key proposals that are the sweetest.
We bring you 12 people whose non-glamorous proposals were completely awesome.
1. “He ended up proposing to me in a public toilet.”

2. “I proposed to her in our garage.”
“On my birthday, she was taking me out to eat and I couldn’t find anywhere to hide the ring. She asked if everything was okay and I said, ‘might as well get this out of the way.’ I proposed to her in our garage,” – forkandbowl
6. "He proposed while we were lying in bed."
