National Proposal Day
Happy National Proposal Day! Women around the nation will fall asleep tonight counting bridesmaids instead of sheep.
In honor of this oh-so-perfect holiday, we’re sharing one of our favorite engagement stories!
Reggie Williams, Jr. wanted to ask his girlfriend Brandie Wilkins to marry him while on their Caribbean vacation. Reggie seriously knocked it out of the park by arranging for a helicopter ride over Jamaica’s seven-mile beach. While the couple was soaring through the sky, the staff at Sandals Negril used bamboo adorned with shells and tropical flowers to spell out, “B, WILL YOU MARRY ME?” on the beach. Naturally she said “yes!”
Sigh. So romantic! Bravo Reggie!
The website, Tailored.com, did a fun survery on modern engaged women, here are a few statistics:
- 65% of women said that the didn’t see the proposal coming that day but they did know it was in the future plans because they talked about it often, 18% of women said they were SHOCKED by their proposal and had no idea their man was thinking about popping the question, 13% of women said they knew when he was going to propose but acted surprised anyway!
- The majority of brides-to-be (27%) were dating their significant other between 3-5 years before getting engaged. The next biggest group of brides (22%) were dating their significant other between 1-2 years before getting engaged.
- 78% of women said their fiance got down on one knee to propose.
