Your Perfect Proposal Competition – Ended

Written by    Last updated: June 6, 2012

This competition has now closed – thanks to everyone for all the entries!

It’s one of those stories you’ll probably be telling for the rest of your life – how he (or she) proposed! The setting, the time, the occasion, the surprise (or not)… however it happened, it surely was a very special day.

Confetti loves proposal stories! Tell us all the details – how long you waited, how it happened, were you surprised, did you say ‘yes’ right away, did you get a ring? Did you tell your family right away? Or maybe your family was present at the time of proposal? We’d love to hear it all!

This month’s competition is sponsored by Debbie Graham Jewellery. Established in 2009 and featured in Vogue magazine, Debbie Graham hand makes her bridal jewellery from her own studio in the Yorkshire countryside.

You can win this absolutely marvellous vintage-inspired Hayworth tiara! Inspired by the art deco period, the Hayworth tiara oozes style & sophistication. Hand wired diamante stones nestled amongst sparkling vintage style brooches are set to one side and placed upon a diamante wrapped silver tone tiara band. The side decoration measure 4″x2″.Hayworth Tiara

    It was the day before my 23rd Birthday and I was heavily pregnant with my beautiful baby boy, he was due a week later but of course he decided to arrive a little earlier than expected…due to the fact I went into labour my partner decided to bring his plans forward a day and propose to me thinking I would be in hospital on my actual birthday (the original proposal date)…he had my mum make a cake for me which was absolutely stunning, it had white roses and two white hearts with the ring tied to the hearts and the wording ‘Lora, will you marry me?’ at first I just thought he had organised a birthday cake for me until I had to look twice at the wording…at this point i burst into tears completely overwhelmed as the proposal was so out of the blue…what more could i have asked for…becoming engaged to my childhood sweetheart and the arrival of my baby boy all in one week 🙂

    It was my 24th birthday and I woke up home alone. My little boy had gone away for the weekend and my fiancé was in work. I got up feeling miserable as sin cus he hadnt left me a card or mount. At 10.30am my friend text to say she was poppin over with a card. I went in my bag to get my keys and when I turned round my partner was standing there with a cake, flowers n presses. I didn’t even notice he’d put my ring on the cake and when I realised I starting. Dying and then he got down on 1 knee and done it properly. I later found out that all our family and friends new (except the 1 that popped over and found Andrew on his knee popping the question) it was very romantic and funny Especially wen my friend felt really bad for walking in

    I been with Craig for a year when his grandad died he got £1000 from his inheritence. We went to take a walk along the river Windrush and he said he needed the toilet. I sat on the bank for half hour feeling as if he had forgot to return when he came running over the bridge knelt down and asked to marry me. He presented me with a wonderful ring which he had popped to jewellers not the toilet

    I had been with my fiance for 19 months when we decided to get engaged, we had already talked about it so decided to go and look at rings together, along with my daughter (9 years old). We picked the ring and told all our family & friends who were delighted for us, when we got home after buying the ring we realised that my fiance hadnt actually proposed properly, the next thing i know he takes my ring off my finger while down on his knees changing our sons nappy and proposes to me! I think you will agree not the most romantic proposal but to be honest it wouldnt have felt the same any other way and i love him to bits so thats all that matters x

    I have been with my fiancee 10 years. He brought me a hot air balloon ride for xmas. We had booked the trip for 13th July 2011 but it was cancelled, we had 2nd attempt on my birthday 14th July. This was successful. My fiancee proposed whilst we were in the air. Everyone else was very happy for us. So not only did I have a fantastic hot air balloon ride and birthday I was also proposed to. I had no idea – but the rest of the family did, so no wonder they were all so gutted when the 1st balloon ride was cancelled!

    Hi my name is Jennie, my wonderful partner took me on a surprise weekend mystery tour for my birthday. First we visited Goathland, Heartbeat country, then went on to Grosmont. Still keeping my birthday surprise very secret, we went down to watch the steam trains go by, he then led me down still obliviously and took me to a wonderful steam train which took us and others for a fantastic meal. There were a few parties on the carriage celebrating birthdays, after finishing our wonderful meals the staff came down the isle and group by group got everybody to sing happy birthday. After having mine sang, my partner suddenly sprung up and said he’d got something to say and preceded to get down on one knee in front of the whole carriage and asked me to marry him, it couldn’t have been a nicer birthday surprise and the staff on the train were wonderful, they brought me a bouquet of flowers even though they didn’t know anything about it
