July is the middle of one our favorite times of year, Wedding Season! As we pack our bags to celebrate our favorite couples from coast to coast we always want to know- how did he propose? A wedding proposal is something we all think about – women, because they wonder what theirs is going be like, and men, because they wonder how they're going do it (and make it good!). Since a wedding proposal is one of those memories of a lifetime, you're looking to make it one of those moments that will warm the heart when you think of it 50 years later.
So, apart from the perfect mate (which you've obviously found), two crucial details for a wedding proposal are the engagement ring and how you're going to pop the question. We've got you covered on the ring, and now have some inspiration for your proposal!
The perfect wedding proposal?
No doubt, we get tons of inspiration from television shows and movies, where the proposals range from the incredibly sweet to the incredibly fun and quirky. An example of incredibly sweet would be Monica's proposal to Chandler on Friends (a girl can only wait so long for her man to get it together!). Deeply classy is Andrew's proposal to Melanie in Sweet Home Alabama – every girl would love any Tiffany ring but it's a lucky lady who gets her choice in a whole store! And just out-and-out fun is Dylan's flash mob proposal to Jamie in Friends With Benefits; what could be more fun than a bunch of people who just turn up and dance as a prelude to the biggest question of your life!

Reel Life vs. Real Life
Scenes like this are what you'd expect on the big screen (and even the small ones) but here's the interesting part – real life isn't too different and at least as much fun! Everyday, people are coming up with unique, hilarious and fun ways to pop the question...whether it's a clue in a crossword puzzle (bet you never had this happen to someone you know!), writing in the sky, a treasure hunt, or even on the big screen at a movie theatre or a broadway-esque performance at Disneyland. In the recent past, flash mob proposals and the like have become the hot favorite.
So if you're getting to asking your significant other that so important question and you're looking for some inspiration (nudge, nudge, wink, wink) for that extravagant expression, we're treating you to some of the best real life wedding proposals (as chosen by popular opinion)...maybe you can take a leaf from one of these. If you're given to very elaborate gestures, you'll love the last one!
