It doesn’t matter whether you’re a hopeless romantic or an Ice Queen, you’ve probably fantasized about the day the love of your life proposes. Maybe you’ve dreamed of being asked the question on top of the Eiffel Tower or as you and your beau float through Venice on a gondola. Your fantasy probably involves a sunset too! It’s a moment you’ll remember for the rest of your life, and, if it’s done in the traditional way, it’ll end with a ring being put on your finger
When my grandpa proposed to my grandma, he decided he wasn’t going to risk buying her engagement ring in case it wasn’t to her liking. Instead, he gave her a blank cheque to buy whatever ring she liked the most. It was a grand romantic gesture, and my gran’s mom encouraged her to buy the biggest, flashiest ring she could find. My mom said this was to test how pure my grandpa’s intentions were when he got the sizable bill afterward, and I have to agree.
