Friday’s Feature: Marriage Proposal Video

It’s finally Friiiidayyyy!! After a long week of eating crappy food, I am happy to see this week come to an end. Here’s to healthy eating starting from this weekend next week…

Today’s feature is a very, very, very cute proposal. I found this proposal video on the blog, Style Me Pretty (yes, another blog I stalk visit for inspiration). It’s so personal and unique – have a look and be ready to say, “Awwwwwwww.

This is what the groom-to-be had to say:

I had originally intended on proposing to her on Saturday, November 26th- the day before my birthday. The plan was to gift her with an Android Tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab), and when she unlocked it, it would immediately play the animation that I had made. However, on Sunday the 19th we received news that her best friend’s father had been diagnosed with terminal cancer, and immediately made plans to take her to Arkansas (from where we live in Toronto) to visit her close friends where she grew up. The day before we left, she decided to give me a birthday present early- and it ended up being the exact tablet I had bought her. I was surprised and immediately thought of the proposal I had planned- and she mistook my reaction for me not liking the gift. I told her that I simply had gotten her the exact same one for Christmas, and had been hiding it at work.

We flew down to Arkansas on Thursday the 24th and had a lovely Thanksgiving that involved a fair share of tears. When we returned on Sunday the 27th, my actual birthday, I presented her with the tablet, still in a box, telling her that despite it being my birthday, since she knew about her Christmas gift I felt she should have it now, and urged her to open it. The video you see linked is what played immediately. Through tears, I am very happy to say, she said yes.


I really think it’s time for desi guys to start getting creative with proposals. Oh wait, most desi guys don’t propose – their parents do!

I was really surprised when Nouman did… did your Mister propose?
