Anyway, she said this about proposals in the comments, and I thought it was really very true:
"The proposal is icing on the relationship cake and a chance to express how much we love each other, not a chance to buy a lot of expensive services in an attempt to make it special and important."
I will say this about public proposals and about having pictures of them:
So yeah, pictures are great. But they can't ever capture everything.
Also, a lot of people have said that proposals are such a private moment and why would you want people to watch you? Can somebody please explain the difference between that and having a ceremony? Thanks!
