Another Friday means another installment of SweetLove with Andrea. Today she's bringing some proposal ideas that are heartwarming and funny and simple and extravagant... Can we say, "YES!" now? Take it away, Andrea!
When you have found someone you would want to spend the rest of your life with, it is natural to be excited to dream about how your marriage proposal would be like. Hopefully, it is something you will only experience once in your lifetime, so you want it to be memorable. The only limit is your wild imagination. And budget, of course. Yesterday I asked my followers to share their wishful thinking, as well as how they actually got proposed, and here are eight funny, heartwarming marriage proposal ideas that will make your heart flutter and your mouth utter “Yes! Yes! Yes!”
I don’t want anything grand, I just want him to get down on his knee, holding a ring, saying he’s got my parents’ blessing and that it's okay for us to be together even though we're of a different religion and ethnicity.
He rented a chopper while we're in Tokyo. He kept holding my hand the whole time, and as we're descending, he quickly pulled out the ring and popped the question. Of course I said yes!
I prefer a practical kind of guy to a lovey-dovey guy. I want him to look me in the eye and straightforwardly tell me to go find a venue for us to hold our wedding reception at.
As an ENTJ, I wish he would come to me with a PowerPoint presentation on why we're a match, including data, strong arguments, case studies, solutions, and recommendations. Because I'm such a logical person and a marriage is a huge commitment, so I want to make sure I know what I'll be getting myself into.
I wanted something romantic that's shared just between the two of us. Little did I know, he came to my house to meet my father, and told him he would like to marry me. I caught off guard, but it turns out it was the most romantic thing he'd ever done for me.
My boyfriend and I work for the same company. I wish he would propose me in front of everyone during our daily group meeting.
I wanted a simple proposal: no family and friends, no flash mob, no photographers, no down on one knee. I don't even care about rings, just ask me either in bed or sofa. One day I woke up to an envelope on the pillow next to me, saying “Read this first!” I opened it, it said “Will you marry me?” I said, “Are you serious??” He said, “Is that a yes?” I said, “Yes, of course!” It was nothing fancy, but it was perfect for me.
He randomly told me to create an income projection until 2019 and to send it by lunchtime. I was confused but I did it anyway because we're open about financial stuff. But before I could send it, he already sent me his income projection and budgeting for our wedding next year. Guess that's what happens when an auditor proposes an accountant.

Filipinos are known for their long holiday celebration. Many traditions and new ways keep this season alive no matter which city or town you go. You won't run out of things to do (but your budget probably will!) when you celebrate the holidays in the Philippines through these activities:
It's this time of the year when massive pop-up year-end bazaar and sale events happen, so go ahead and take advantage of the markdown madness to complete your Christmas gift list.
How many masses have you attended so far? Get up early or spare an hour so you could attend the mass at night because as they say, completing the 9-day or -night series will make a wish come true.
As soon as the holiday season comes, many parks and tourist attractions open Christmas-themed shows that are perfect for all ages. These Instagram-worthy locations are usually free of charge, making them picturesque and cheery venues to gather with your friends and families.
It has been part of the Filipino tradition to gather in groups and sing either classic or remixed tunes as they go from one house to another. Just as long as you know the lyrics to the in-trend Christmas songs, you'll definitely get those coins, or if you're lucky, you'll receive bills from your kind neighbors!
Many Filipinos love merrymaking, so expect most of your December weekends, and sometimes, weekdays too, to blocked off with schedules of parties. It's also a time to meet the newborns or catch up with the relatives who you haven't spoken to for a long time. Make your reunion party more memorable and let SweetEscape photographers turn your moments into beautiful photographs. Special for this holiday season, get 50% OFF on your 2-hour photo shoot, anywhere in Manila.
The Filipino version of Secret Santa is a more exciting and interesting one because gift-giving is done in small batches. Whether the category's something big, something fluffy, something embarrassing, or something naughty, you'll surely go home with a smile on your face because your friend or officemate could surely find a gift to pull that category or theme off!
For some Filipinos, the holiday season means quality time, without the hassle of preparing feasts or organizing parties. Some simply prefer staying in or booking an accommodation where they could all relax and exchange thoughtful gifts after a hearty meal.
To some who've been looking forward to a unique kind of celebration for the holidays, setting off to another country is an option. School or office breaks give them a chance to explore new places, making their holidays a more memorable one.
In times like these, memories are meant to be saved. Especially if you've waited long enough for your family to be complete this holiday season, don't miss the chance to document those moments — let SweetEscape do it for you.
SweetEscape now offers a one-hour photo shoot that'll capture your best holiday moments in 1-2 spots. Your edited photos will be ready in 3 business days, just in time for sharing with everyone else around the world.
