You Have to Watch This Guy’s Perfectly Timed (and Captured!) Photo-Booth Proposal 

This is one of our favorite things all week: This clever groom-to-be decided to propose to his high school sweetheart on their seventh anniversary—inside a photo booth!

I mean, I’m not sure I have ever once successfully posed for all four pictures inside one of those things—for some reason figuring out the timing feels like rocket science, and at least one of the pictures is always a mess—and somehow this guy managed to time his proposal so that all four pictures capture the whole event absolutely perfectly.

So great. Take a look:

Your engagement party is just the first of many wedding-related get togethers that’ll happen before you walk down the aisle, and while it’s a great way to set the tone for your Big Day, you don’t want to exhaust yourself before the real planning even begins.

A Guy In an Elmo Suit Proposed to His Girlfriend Last Night On Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Last night, as I was puttering around getting ready for bed, I heard Jimmy Kimmel announce from my television screen that we were about to watch a proposal go down on his stage.

And he was in on it, of course: He had plucked a seemingly random girl from the audience to participate in a Hollywood Boulevard scavenger hunt, and one of the things she was supposed to procure and present back at the show was a dude in an Elmo suit. (It seems there are all kinds of dudes in costumes out there on Hollywood Blvd.)

She succeeded—and then this happened:

Cute! Makes me wonder how many ladies this holiday season are surprised by a secret boyfriend disguised in a Santa suit.

Today’s Friendly Wedding PSA: A Crane Is Not Necessary for the Perfect Proposal 

A Dutch dude is perhaps rethinking his grand proposal still today after his plan, which involved a giant crane as a proposal prop, went just a little awry.

The crane he hired to lower him into his girlfriend’s garden outside her bedroom window, that when she woke up he might appear there as if by magic and ask her to be his wife, crashed into the roof of the apartment building she lives in.

He jumped out unharmed—but then a crane brought in to right the fallen crane also fell on the already damaged rooftop. Behold:

PW Reader Ring: MaryKate & Ryan!

MaryKate's ring!

MaryKate’s ring!

The couple: MaryKate Mela and Ryan Purdy, Philadelphia.

The ring: My ring is deco-style, with a European-cut round diamond surrounded by 18 smaller diamonds and set in platinum. It was purchased at an estate sale and then resold Fishtown Jewelers, which is right down the street from my house. I went in one day to get a watch battery, and just saw it there—I wasn’t even looking—and fell in love with it.

Ryan was still stationed in Hawaii for the Navy at the time, after having been deployed several times. At the end of his active duty when he moved to Philadelphia, he remembered that I had liked it, went in and made a deposit, and proposed one month later.

Warning: This Tricky Christmas Card Proposal Will Make You Weep 

The irony is that the comedic relief you will experience while crying over this adorable proposal is how much the bride-to-be herself starts crying when she realizes what’s going on. It’s really sweet: She loses it!

And we can’t blame her. Her very clever boyfriend arranged for them to sit in the front of a family Christmas card picture, with family members wearing shirts that spelled out “Merry X-Mas”—at least for one shot—behind them. That way, she didn’t notice when they all switched around for the second shot until she saw the photo.

This is good. Enjoy:
