Are Unplanned Marriage Proposals Better?

Marriage Proposals — Planned or Spontaneous?

None of you had engagement snafus to rival Seth Rogen's jittery, change-of-plans proposal, but OnSugar user NikkiRuby made a valid point. "I would much prefer a Seth Rogan type of proposal over an elaborately planned out one," she said. "The unplanned burst of words just seems more honest."

Proposals can range from highly choreographed musical extravaganzas to impulsive questions asked out of passion, but most fall somewhere in-between. Would you rather yours be more or less planned?

Spontaneous. And NOT in public... My first proposal happened at a restaurant in early December. He said he couldn't wait until Christmas like he had planned, so he popped the question after we ate our spaghetti, and he handed me the box and said "will you marry me" (nothing romantic, just that) and I opened the box and said "what is this..." and he repeated "will you marry me?" and I said "yes". We never got married, and I always hated how he proposed.

It was perfectly planned. He knew he was asking me that night after dinner, I knew he was asking me that night after dinner. It was perfect!

I want a big production that's been well thought out and is surprising. And my boyfriend is great at both of those things! While I see the appeal of the spontaneous proposal, I just love the idea of him putting lots of thought and care into it.

I'd like it somewhat more spontaneous, although hopefully not, like, first thing in the morning when I look all funky or something.

I'd like mine planned, but my man is extremely spontaneous, so that's probably how it will be :P
