How I (Ring) POPped the question!

On 12.24.14 my life changed forever for the better. My boyfriend of 7 years popped the question and pulled off the most amazing surprise proposal.  There was no detail unthought of and he gave me the most amazing proposal story to tell for years to come.  He involved my whole family, asking both my parents and siblings for their blessing to marry me almost two months before the proposal.   I could not have been happier with my proposal story and it was everything I've ever dreamed of.  Christmas Eve is one of my favorite days of the year, I love getting into the holiday spirit, and of course my family and now fiancĂ© mean the world to me so given the season and everyone involved it was absolutely perfect!

After my fiancĂ© proposed to me the wedding planning immediately began and I chose my bridesmaids quickly, but knew I had to ask them to stand by my side in a creative way.  Being that I love candy, I of course wanted to involve candy in some way.  I decided I'd use Ring Pops and "propose" to my favorite ladies by popping the question.  I went everywhere to find the perfect gift box they would open and finally found the perfect ones.  I stuffed the boxes with tissue paper and gold confetti, and printed out a note saying "Plan with me, stand with me, cry with me, laugh with me, will you be my bridesmaid/matron of honor/flower girl?"

I topped off the box with sparkly and shiny ribbons, and was able to ask 6 out of my 7 bridesmaids and my flower girl in person.  They all loved the idea and all said yes!  There were many tears, smiles, excitement, and hugs.  It was awesome.  They loved their Ring Pops, especially my flower girl.  I can't wait for them all to be by my side on my big day!
