"My now husband had passed out from low blood sugar, and I had to call an ambulance to revive him. When we got home from the hospital, he asked me to marry him." -- Dawn
"My fiance took me on an adventure panning for gold in California, and I found a gorgeous white gold ring that he had planted. It took me some time to find it, which was a little nerve-racking for my partner. Plus, it’s also all on video to be enjoyed for the rest of our lives!" -- Alex

Love on Top
"I live in Peru in a city that sits at the base of a five-mile-high snowcapped volcano. I always wanted to climb it, and I convinced my boyfriend to climb it too. After two days and an incredible effort, we actually made it to the summit. As soon as we caught our breath, my boyfriend knelt in the volcanic ash and asked me to marry him." -- Martita
Taking the Plunge
"My boyfriend and best friend of six and a half years proposed to me on a family vacation in Mexico that he tagged along on. We're both scuba divers and obsess over it daily, so the trip revolved around diving, of course. He proposed underwater while we were diving, with a homemade 'Will you marry me?' sign. I felt like I would drown I was so excited!" -- Corey
Ride of Their Lives
"We were in Arizona for the weekend to test-drive the brand-new Nissan Altima (Paul had won a contest and I had no idea he was planning a proposal with everyone's help!). Once we were on the track and Paul was driving the car, we had to pull over on the side of the road because we saw a big black curtain blocking the roadway. As I was looking behind us to capture the gorgeous sunset, out of nowhere 4 cars drove by on the track -- each one with a banner that together spelled out: "will" "you" "marry" "me?" As I was saying yes and crying tears of happiness, the curtain dropped to reveal a string quartet playing an amazing musical medley and a table set up with strawberries and champagne. I was completely blown away!" -- Jane

Hearts on Fire
"On Memorial Day this year, we were a part of the local parade (my boyfriend is part of the fire department and I'm in the Ladies Auxiliary), and when we got to the area in front of the firehouse, all the guys lined up and the Ladies Auxiliary was asked to get out of our cars and walk with the firemen. Well, I did, and as I turned around, my boyfriend took a ring box out of his pocket, got down on one knee and proposed. I said yes, and all at once the fire truck sirens and lights went off on every truck -- there are eight in total!" -- Angie

weddings: creating your perfect day
Look, I looooove engagement season for obvious reasons, but even I can admit I'm like, "Really, AGAIN?" when yet ANOTHER engagement ring pops up in my news feed. Seriously, there were two this weekend. (Congrats, Gemma and Danny!)
Can you believe it was only about 15 years ago that engagement ring shopping meant a time-consuming slog from jewelry boutique to jewelry boutique? Thank goodness for the internet; nowadays, it’s easy to do all that legwork online.
This winter, it’s all about mixing unexpected seasonal elements with elegant neutral details and a hint of sparkle and sequins. Take a look.
New "Harry Potter" themed wedding pic is latest in a hot 2013 wedding trend.
Pantone announced that radiant orchid is the official color of the year for 2014, and we’re predicting it’s going to be a hot color for weddings, too!
“If you’re so busy tweeting and Instagraming, you’re not paying attention,” New York wedding planner Marcy Blum said. “It’s almost a cosmic faux pas. People want your energy with them and focused on what they’re doing.”
The wedding favor, that little thank-you-for-coming gift, has risen to new heights with the bride and groom giving guests a wide range of favors that are meaningful to them.
Generations ago, planning a wedding was 100 percent the bride's job, but in today's age of gender equity, it's a mere 99 percent.
