Last weekend I was lucky enough to witness, without a doubt, one of the cutest pop-culture proposals I’ve ever heard of. I was visiting London and, being the “Harry Potter” aficionado that I am, couldn’t resist a trip to King’s Cross station to see Platform 9 3/4. While the actual station is under heavy construction and not nearly as pretty as the “Potter” films would have us think, it didn’t stop a smitten suitor from dropping to one knee and pulling out a ring. Needless to say, she said yes.
I joked that since he stole my dream proposal, I’d have to hold out for my future husband popping the question on the set pieces of Middle Earth still in New Zealand after “Lord of the Rings” production. But it got me thinking about what would be some of the best ways to propose to movie-loving, nerdy girls like me. Sure, this Platform 9 3/4 proposal was nowhere near as epic and awesome as the “(500) Days of Summer” proposal from earlier this year, but there’s still plenty of romantic ideas left to cover. (Girls, forward this to your boyfriends!)
You’ve heard some of our suggestions, now share some of yours! What would be your dream pop-culture proposal?
