There is something wonderfully heartwarming about a proposal story.
While we're all familiar with the large scale ones that make the paper or local news, sometimes it's the smaller tales without all the fuss that taste the sweetest.
For the nosy romantics among us, social media lets us witness romance as it happens in real time (seriously, just try searching the hashtag "I Said Yes" on Instagram). And not only that, there are entire accounts dedicated to individual proposal stories.
We've rounded up just eight of them that prove a proposal doesn't have to be all sky writing and flash mobs to be ridiculously romantic.
Ah, love. Ain't it grand?
