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.”
“My now husband has planned a huge proposal in a park. He had a picnic with candles, champagne and rose petals all set up to surprise me, but just as we go there, a huge thunderstorm came down. He ended up proposing to me in the public toilets nearby.” – Sophie
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."
"We were lying in bed on a Tuesday morning, he gave me a diamond, and proposed to me. We went to get the ring made together, it was so sweet," - Amanda.
7. "He proposed while we were waiting for RACV,"
8. "He proposed to me in our kitchen."
"My husband freaked out because he thought I was cluing onto the proposal (which I totally was not) and gave me the ring wrapped in Christmas paper (it was not Christmas) in our kitchen, forgetting to do his spiel and to get down on one knee. Then we went out and celebrated and I drank too much and vomited... so classy," - Catherine
