Every girl dreams of a romantic proposal they'll remember forever, and dreams came true for these 9 lucky girls — here are nine magical moments caught on camera.
The Theatrical Surprise
Matt pulling out all the stops to propose to his the love of his life Ginny has gone viral this week, getting hits by the million. Thinking she was out for a normal night at the pictures, Ginny ended up watching a trailer of her own in engagement in real time , after some genius planning from her now fiancé. As one commenter perceptively advises, don't let your girlfriend see this.
According to Disney, 'the magic starts here' — and this is true for Erika, whose boyfriend decided to propose to her at the theme park a year after they met there in the form of a five-minute musical street show - viewed by millions online since. The perfection of the routine involving Disney extras is flawlessly brilliant - so much so that some commenters speculate that it must be fake. But you'll love it either way.
The Party in the Park
We're betting this is the most enjoyable bit of street entertainment Claudine has ever seen, after her boyfriend, Woodrow, enlisted the help of some professional dancers to make an all-singing all-dancing production of proposing to her in Madison Square Park— complete with costume changes, streamers and an extra on a unicycle. He even incorporated a photographer snapping the pair of them into the choreography.
The Fashionable Proposition
Not many men will get away with asking someone already in a wedding dress to be his bride, but this guy gets away with it — their outfits are actually part of a fashion show. Taking the opportunity to propose to his genuinely surprised bride-to-be, this guy's efforts have had over half a million hits since he posted the video three years ago. We defy you not to cry when he does.
The Chicken Dance
Jackie thought she was judging a school talent contests and found much amusement in a large dancing chicken, having no idea she in a couple of minutes she would be agreeing to spend the rest of her life with it. Her boyfriend John had been trying to think of a quirky and memorable way to propose, and the questionable skills of the cameraman don't do anything to lessen the aw-factor when he does.
The EGGcellent Street Show
A Street Entertainer fools the unknowing future bride to be into thinking that by operating an egg whisk against her forehead she might be able to telepathically put a message into the minds of the gathering crowd, who would all shout it out at once. The phrase — or question to be exact (can you guess what it is?) had already been predetermined by her boyfriend, who is lingering closely with a small box.
If the afore-mentioned Theatrical Surprise is the box-office smash, then this is one of those small low-budget numbers whose merit lies in the touching storyline and adorable cast. Troy had been getting the same bus as Christie (known as The Bus Girl to his friends) for six months, before he finally plucked up the courage to ask her out. It therefore seems like the perfect location to ask her something else.
The Engagement Deal (or No Deal?)
Eddie Moores, a contestant on Noel Edmond's quiz show Deal or No Deal, vowed to celebrate a big money win by asking his girlfriend, Sarah Mills, to marry him. The surprise factor lost by the fact that she knows what's coming and blubs at the slightest mention of anything in a box is saved by an unexpected twist from the usually hard-nosed banker, and Eddie's super-cute speech when he finally pops the question.
The Pink Elephant
An electronic store doesn't sound like the most romantic location, any more than a pink fluffy elephant costume sounds like the most romantic attire, but it worked like a dream. Jane thought she was a meeting a client at the store, but ended up being to proposed to in surround sounds on a multitude of TV screens by video, with her future husband milling around in person, but in disguise.
