Me and and my lovely boyfriend were engaged on Friday evening - we had been discussing it for a while (we had picked a ring during Christmas) and even booked a wedding planning trip to WDW for October :rotfl2: (what can I say Virgin had a flight sale on :rotfl: )

I came home from work on Friday and Henry said to get in the car as we were going away - he said he had already packed my things. We set off in the car and he put on a cd he had made of all my favourite disney songs for me to listen too - the Little Mermaid, Enchanted, High School Musicial etc, by the point I was already crying :sad: with joy though!

We drove for about an hour and then reached Whinstone Lodge - a new development of 5 luxury lodges and a bistro restaurant (here is their website they have come nice photos on there http://www.whinstoneview.com/Welcome.html).

We pulled up to our lodge, and got out, Henry said all my clothes were inside :confused3 (I was very confused by this point)

Here is our lodge

and the views from the lodge

When we got inside all my clothes were unpacked (two suitcases full as Henry didnt know what to bring :lmao: ), and there was champagne and flowers:

Henry then sat me down and proposed - I said yes of course! Here is my ring :goodvibes

and some more photos of the interior of the lodge

We then went for dinner at the Bistro on the grounds, which was lovely

and then drank the rest of our champagne in our outdoor hot tub!

and Bettys tea room for lunch

We then had another lovely night in the lodge (and hot tub!) on Saturday night before returning on Sunday :sad:

Were planning on a December 2010 WDW wedding :goodvibes , both families are very excited so we just need the exchange rate too pick up!:rotfl:

What a lovely thread - I loved reading about your proposal - he sounds a great guy.

When you already have the ring it so easy for actual proposal to pass by but this was soooooooooooo romantic and so much thought has gone into it.

Can't wait to follow your wedding plans. If you need any tips I "think" Bob might be planning a wedding! :rotfl2:

Oohhh wedddings - I love them!
