How did the two of you meet?
We met at a friend’s dress-up themed “I wouldn’t be caught dead in that…” birthday party a handful of years in the past. Needless to say we did not appear our ideal. Soon after meeting Andrew and jokingly insulting him he mistakenly believed I was interested in him. I proceeded to dance the evening away with my pals. Fortunate for me he was oblivious and asked pals for my quantity and then asked me out on a date. When I met him for the date I instantly fell for his huge blue eyes (he looked a lot much better in ordinary clothing!) and excellent sense of humour.
Inform us about the proposal:
The mood… soon after missing our initial flight from Manila we were relieved after two brief aeroplane hops and a boat journey to attain our island location, Apulit in the Philippines…but not that pleased about getting to leave our luggage behind and go out to dinner in travel clothing.
The ruse… the hotel would take us to an additional island resort by boat as their way of apologising to us for the combine up.
The truth… Andrew had very cleverly + lovingly set this total factor up more than the last few months and kept it a secret from totally no a single… except me!
He asked my mother and father’ permission, designed the ring specially for me, advised the hotel manager the first choices offered for the proposal location just weren’t great ample and asked that they come up with anything far better. So the idea of a deserted island, utilised only for snorkel stops till then, was picked as the spot. He would pop the question… or would he?
We arrived at the island by way of velocity boat to hotel personnel setting up a dinner table for us, a personalized chef and lots of bubbly to appreciate on our blanket while overlooking the moonlit sea, surrounded by candles in the sand. Well now that I’ve set this beautiful scene you want to know exactly what I explained following… and I quote: “Jeepers Ards, if you’re ever going to propose – this is the way to do it!”
I turned towards him only to have a ring thrust at me!And that’s how Andrew in no way did get to pop the question…I rather significantly did it for him!
