Inspirational Wedding Proposal Stories

Last week we mentioned the fact that we are in the midst of engagement season. That blog featured 7 Thing To Do After You Say "YES!", and today Venus Bridal decided to offer a little inspiration for anyone that has been thinking about popping the question. Also, we can't seem to get enough of these amazing stories and videos!  

Many Different Ways To Propose
A proposal doesn't have to be elaborate, but the element of surprise is always a great way to make it extra special. The people in these videos made them short and sweet, but the reactions were big and tearful. (Happy tears!) 

On the other hand, some people put an enormous amount of thought, time, planning, and effort into their proposal. The video below took some skill to pull off, and the help of their family and friends.  

Powerful Words & Actions
Not everyone gets their magical proposals on video (note to guys: try to at least have someone secretly photograph it.. she'll love it!) but if you use your imagination, you can picture the reactions received from the following proposal stories.

"She's American. He's Irish. They met in Italy and started out as friends. Friends who liked each other A LOT. But after months of just friends, she thought she read the signals wrong, until one night at the bar he slipped her a napkin. 'I really like you,' he had written. Fast-forward four years and many international adventures later, and they are sitting at a bar in Berlin reminiscing. He pulls a napkin out of his pocket. She takes it, confused. 'Years ago I told you I liked you just like this. Now I'm asking: Will you marry me?' it read."

We met at a Halloween party on October 29th, 2011. On October 29th, 2015, the 4 year anniversary of when we met, Chris decided to go to Disneyland dressed as Cinderella and Prince Charming for Halloween. Cinderella has always been my favorite princess so I was beyond excited! 

We are walking towards the castle to take a picture when Chris tells me that it’s 11:11 and I need to make my wish, a ritual we usually always partake in. I closed my eyes and made a wish. When I opened them, Chris pointed towards the castle where his brother, who was also dressed in costume, walking towards us with a real glass slipper on a purple pillow. He said to me “I’m here to present Cinderella with her glass slipper.” 

I sat down on the bench when Chris grabbed the slipper and put it on my foot. It fit me perfectly. He said “happy anniversary babe.” And I was beyond thrilled to have a real glass slipper just like Cinderella. But then, he stood me up and his brother turned the pillow over to reveal the ring he had been holding on the bottom the whole time. I was in complete shock and speechless. Chris grabbed the ring and got down on one knee. It’s safe to say all my dreams came true that day. I had never felt more like a princess and it was such a magical moment.

Don't Sweat The Small Stuff
Even if the plans don't go exactly the way you want them to, it's the end result that really matters. Your dream proposal may not go off without a hitch, but that's okay because... you're getting married!  

Now It's Time To Plan The Wedding!
After the excitement dies down enough to move forward (because that excitement is too good to go away completely!) it's time to make a list and start wedding planning. When you get the the "find a wedding dress" portion of your list, Venus Bridal offers a wonderful selection of bridal gown collections that work well with any bride's personal style. 

We've also got amazing dresses for your bridesmaids, and even the mothers of the bride and groom. Take a look through your choices at, then find a store near you so that you can begin trying a few on. 

The feeling of romance.. the essence of glamour.
