    Marriage Proposals are getting a lot more complicated...



    Mine was an LotR themed meal (Mme LeMarchand is a big fan) and, despite the printed menu, she never realised what treasure the dessert concealed:

    SMAUG’S HORDE: Chocolate cups filled with an exotic fruit cocktail of pomegranate rubies, ingots of golden plum, slivers of kiwi-fruit jade, and blueberry sapphires - lightly dusted with caster sugar snow from the Lonely Mountain and jealously guarded by a dragon folded from paper in the Easterling manner. Who knows what treasures you may find?

    Well, she said yes !

    (Would have been pretty awful if she hadn't).

    As a sign of the love you both feel and the desire to show this to the world.

    and the Tax benefits

    Yeah, I don't get the public proposal thing. Surely a proposal is a very personal thing? A friend of mine proposed on national radio on the Isle of Man during TT week...

    I "proposed" last week (we had already decided to marry), but still wanted to do.

    She said she didnt want anything public, or expensive. In the end got this....

    Love Hearts Trinket Box

    With Marry Me and message on the wrapper. I was worried to cheesy, but made her cry (in a good way)

    That's sweet! (No pun intended).

    We have matching invites too. Penciled in for the 18th October this year, but we may have to bring forward.

    I proposed on Christmas Day just gone, just the two of us. I see it as a personal thing.
