The blog “How He Asked” by “The Knot” compiled their favorite marriage proposals of 2016.

Below is their list of the Top Ten Marriage Proposals of 2016:

1. The Enchanted Forest Proposal

"We kept walking another 30 yards and came upon pictures of us hanging on twine wrapped around trees. I immediately began uncontrollably crying (happy tears)! We took the time to embrace every second of what was going on in that moment as Jake started to read something that he wrote earlier in our relationship.."

2. The Proposal that Brought "In Sickness and In Health" to Life

"My girlfriend has been in and out of hospitals her entire life - she was born with Cystic Fibrosis. In 2010, she underwent a double-lung transplant and had a 50/50 chance of living through the operation. She came out of it successfully. After the surgery, she then had an 80% chance of surviving the first five years, and thankfully we're already at year 6! Last week, however, she had a little setback and had to undergo emergency surgery. When she was in recovery, I decided I wanted to change the experience she typically has in the hospital...."

3. The Helicopter Proposal That Literally Swept Her off Her Feet

"Out of nowhere, I heard a helicopter off in the distance. I looked at Taylor in awe and just started laughing of joy. Suddenly the helicopter was landing but 10 feet away from us and the pilot was waving us to get in. We hop in the helicopter (no big deal right?) and fly over fields of sunflowers and green mountains, it was as stunning as you’re imagining yes. 20 minutes later we arrive at a cute little barn with a reflection of our past, pictures hanging from all our trips and memories, roses and an overwhelming feeling of happiness..."

4. The Sentimental One That Raised the Bar for All the Other Guys
"I was driving around doing errands with my family and my mom showed me her phone and said, "did you see that picture Keegan sent us?" Confused, I took her phone only to find a picture of The Lady and the Tramp with the words, "This chapter starts with a trip back to where our story began…" written across the photo. Growing up, The Lady and the Tramp was our favorite movie and Keegan used to call me "Lady". It took me three tries to finally understand that what I had been waiting for since I was 15 was about to happen. I started crying and asked "Am I supposed to get out of the car?" My brother laughed and yelled, "Yes, get out of the f***ing car!!" When I looked up, we were at the local airport. After I got out of the car, I saw Keegan at the entrance where he was holding out his hand. He took my hand in his and guided me to the airplane...."

5. The Proposal AND Surprise Wedding (Seriously) All in One Day

"Then he says... “I have a second question. Would you want to marry me today? Everything is set up. Your dress, the plans and also... EVERYONE is here.” As I turned around I saw my mom, sister, best friends, aunt and uncle all come running towards us. Ecstatic and confused, I burst into tears and hugged Zach then the entire family. Everyone was waiting for my answer but I was still unsure of the question so he asked again, “Catie, do you want to get married today? Everything will be ready to go in three hours if so...""

6. The Proposal in The Middle of The Couple's Maternity Shoot

"Louis and I met in college and have been dating for five years. We're both teachers and over Christmas break, we received a slight surprise – I was pregnant! Although we may not have been expecting it, the news filled us with so much excitement and we both can not wait to meet our little man. So, a few months into the pregnancy, our best friends surprised us with a maternity shoot. We were having so much fun doing different poses together, and at one point the photographer asked us to turn away from each other for a few. When I turned back around, I looked at Louis and that's when I noticed it. There was a ring in his hand...."

7. The One With The Caricature Surprise in Front of Big Ben

"I went to visit Dominic in London where he was studying abroad. The day after I arrived, we ventured over to Parliament Square so we could take a selfie in front of Big Ben. While there, Dominic noticed a caricature artist drawing another couple and suggested we have ours done too. I was all for it! As the artist was finishing us up, Dominic got a phone call and walked away for a second. Then the artist told me he was ready and asked if I wanted to see it first. He turned the drawing around and I saw "will you marry me?" on the piece of paper with Dominic drawn on one knee in front of Big Ben. When I turned around to find Dominic, I found the exact same scene happening in real life..."

8. The Time The Girl Got a Puppy AND an Engagement Ring

"I tell Darren there is a dog in the box and he acts confused and tells me to see if it has a collar. Well sure enough, the pup had a collar. A pink heart that read “Please say yes – Duke”. Shocked, I turned around to look at Darren and he got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him!"

9. The One Jimmy Fallon Would be Proud Of

"We were playing Jimmy Fallon's Whisper Challenge and it was my turn to guess what Sean would say. I sat in the chair in the middle of the room and put the headphones on so I couldn't hear anything. Sean bends down, looks at me straight in the eyes and says “Carly, will you marry me?” I stare back and spit out a very confident “Red Robbin!!”. I see everyone laughing, so I realize that's not it. Sean composes himself and again says “Will you marry me?”. At this point I didn’t know exactly what he said, but I did think I saw him say the word "marry" somwhere in there. I sit up straighter, look around the room, not wanting to guess anything and make a fool out of myself again and so Sean says it one more time. This time, however, he was starting to get down on one knee as he said it..."

10. The Proposal That Kindergartners Pulled off for their Teacher

"Towards the end of the assembly, my incredibly thoughtful principal started talking about an award that they were going to start giving to teachers who go above and beyond. She called it the “Love is the Key” award and when she finished describing it, I heard her call my name as the first recipient. I was shocked and felt overwhelmed with joy. She pointed to a chair in the middle of the gym and asked that I sit in it and watch a short video they'd put together to show their appreciation. As the video began to play, the kindergarteners popped up one by one on the screen holding a heart sign and sharing their definition of the word love. They began their sentence with "Love is…." and their answers were all incredibly sweet and thoughtful. Halfway into it, I started to notice a few things about the kids in the video – they'd all been past or present students of mine and the heart they were holding up all had the date on them..."
