  1. haha…loved the disclaimer and yes, proposing is just a measure of how much a person esteems their would-be spouses to be and it takes the relationship to a whole new level!!


  2. Sigh. I always wanted a proposal! Boy always wanted to propose! But as you correctly put it, parents met before that and everything was done! Sigh. I mentioned to boy’s family that I always wanted a proposal. His bua took note of that! On engagement day, Bua did not let boy put ring on my finger till he went down on his knee! Boy happily complied, made everyone keep quiet and made fancy announcement and went down on his knee. Happiest moment of my life!


    1. Do buy the book, but let me warn you – sit prepared with tissues, I got all teary-eyed while reading most stories! But then again, I have become a big ball of romantic mush recently :p
      And link away, fellow bride! That’s the whole point of the blog! 🙂


    1. Terrific post.. I guess you have managed to touch the hearts of many brides-to-be with this, the unrealistically rosy expectations are just incidental! 😉
      Would you know of any groom version for the book you suggested, Indian or otherwise? I searched for it in the Chicken Soup series, but damn, the title doesn’t exist, no wonder we need posts like these to throw hints to the boys, sigh!


  3. As I was ardent follower of urs nd kp a track of ur post the boy happen to read this one as even he was in big dellema but after reading this he proposed to me,on new years ….. Poolside with champagne.*blush*thanksssss….;)
