“For the proposal, I booked That Spare Room at The Fabulous Baker Boy, decorated it with our pictures and fairy lights, and made a video.
I had Mun Ching’s friends invite her to dinner at the restaurant, and halfway through, the staff passed her a card instructing her to enter the room.”
Mun Ching says: “There was a huge box in the room and when Vincent opened it, a huge balloon in the shape of a ring popped out. I didn’t want an engagement ring so he proposed with that balloon instead – so adorable!”
“Shoban proposed to me at Terrace Garden, one of my favourite places Singapore.
He prepared a scrapbook of our memories that was beautifully aligned with the chapters and quotations in Harry Potter, and the engagement ring was tied to middle of the book, under the chapter called the “Unbreakable Vow”.
As a Harry Potter fanatic, that was really amazing. Shoban also booked a hotel room that night, where I was surprised by a small party with all our closest family and friends.”
“Our proposal turned out to be sweeter than I had imagined, because we got to share it with the people dearest to us. Oliver had the church grotto beautifully decorated with lights and flowers, and I was so surprised.
He wrote me a letter and sang I Will Be Here by Steven Curtis Chapman before going down on one knee.
After being so moved by his thoughtful and romantic gestures, I said yes, of course! Turns out, our family and friends were in hiding all along and had seen the whole thing. We celebrated with a small party after.”
“After dating for nine years, we were ready to settle down and take our relationship to the next level. I chose to propose to Claire on her birthday, and prepared a simple set-up in one of the rooms of The Fullerton Bay Hotel, alongside our close friends and family. They waited outside on the hotel room’s balcony, and burst in the moment she said yes.
While I hired a violinist to play in the background as I read my proposal speech to Claire, we ended up asking him to excuse himself from the room less than a minute into the proposal as we felt awkward in his presence! That was quite hilarious.”
“Terence proposed to me during our anniversary getaway at Phuket.
He was acting odd throughout the trip and I realised why on our second night there, when I walked into our villa after dinner and saw the words “Will you marry me?” floating in the flower-filled pool.”
“Our proposal happened during our vacation in Boracay. I coordinated everything with a travel agent before we flew over. We went helmet diving on the second day, and that was when I decided to pop the question.
The ring was hidden in a treasure chest, which our diving instructor led us to. When we got to the chest, I took the ring out and went down on one knee. Maggie was so surprised!”
