That said, I like these, they're cute and funny but still...engagement photos? My friends did theirs in the style of Up! Oh dear Lord.
is an odd concept, all a bit planned. I like the style though..would be better if only one of the couple knew and it was more a woman properly ARGHHHY, man saves the day thing. Or vice cversa for the feminist angle ;)
It seems that people are having photoshoots to mark the ocasion of having got engaged, and these two decided to do theirs in a zombie theme.
I know a few people who've had them done, it's always been a few weeks after the engagement, walking in fields or along the Hackney part of Regent's Canal (really). It's not photos of the moment itself.
I think it's becoming a thing, yes.
WHAT'S HAPPENED TO ROMANCE?
I was proposed to (the second time) on the tube, with a silver foil ring. Which, incidently, I found today.
Which normally would win be over but WRONG TOPPPINGS, SUCKER!
I'm having trouble stringing sentences together today.
you're an odd lady
But yes, I think that sounds about right.
so you'll be surprised when a pizza with Antlers tickets topping turns up on your door
She didn't take it very seriously.
They're photos taken afterwards.
but I can’t help thinking that elaborate proposals (i.e. the guy who made a fake movie trailer; the guy who hacked a computer game etc), and also public proposals put the lady in question under too much pressure, and can force them into making the wrong decision.
The best one was that guy at the basketball game who was turned down and then consoled by the mascot. Someone find that clip please.
If it's the one with the guy proposing at half time in a basketball match to a rather attractive lady in a purple dress, then yes.
you would LOVE that Mr. T programme on BBC3. There was a good ten minutes of spurned proposals on it last week.
As far as I can see, either the guy does it because he is already so sure that she’ll say yes, or he does it because he thinks that she might say no in a private setting.
She'll never say no in front of an entire baseball stadium full of people! Trapped for life! Yessssssss
It's a shame he did it like that, the embarrassment of it probably ended the relationship, when maybe all she was saying was just it was too soon, or something. (Total speculation of course.)
like I'm sitting in a room and a sea of cats came in and the cutest one had a ring on their collar and then my husband to be will walk in and thats it really. He then has to leave me alone for a few days with the cats but you wont' see that in the pictures.
(It's nice for them and all, but still, about as cool as those people who dressed up as Star Wars characters).
But I do understand this:
Jsut be more subtle, like hiding it in a packet of polos and offering them one.
THE PHOTOS ARE NOT OF THE PROPOSAL ITSELF.
