7 Proposals We Saw In Movies That Never Fail To Make Us Sob


These are the top seven wedding proposals you will ever see in a movie. Even though they are far from realistic, they are all perfect.

1. Stepmom

This heartfelt speech Luke gives Isabel is the sweetest thing ever. He wakes her up and gives her a ring box, inside is a spool of thread, he then beautifully explains why he loves her then slides a ring from the thread onto her finger. Also it was full of metaphors to do with the thread, and overall a beautiful proposal.

2. Walk the Line

In this scene, Johnny proposes to June on stage after singing a duet. In the middle of the duet Johnny stops signing, apologizes to the audience by saying, "Sorry everyone, I just have to ask June a question before we finish this song." June looks confused and he asks her to marry him. She tries to brush it off and he continues to tell her how much he loves her. Through her tears, she says yes and they kiss as the audience cheers them on. I don't know what is it is about this scene but it makes my eyes water every single time.

3. The Notebook

In this scene, Noah tells Aly that it won't be easy but he wants her. He doesn't necessarily propose to her but he tells her he wants to be with her forever, so we can only assume. This scene takes the cake of being one of the most heart-wrenching scenes in the entire movie, and it still hurts watching it after the 100th time.

4. The Wedding Singer

Robbie proposes to Julia by singing a song he wrote for her over the PA system of an airplane. At this point she is already engaged to someone else, but who could resist this kind of proposal, right? Although this is probably the most unrealistic movie proposal, we all secretly hope ours would be as grand.

5. When Harry Met Sally

When Harry tracked down Sally and told her how much he loved her and couldn't live without her, was an incredibly heart-wrenching moment. Fun fact: This scene was never actually supposed to happen, the script was originally written for the two to separate at the end of the movie. What changed this was, the character of Harry was actually based on the director, Rob Reiner. When they began filming Reiner wasn't seeing anyone, but by the end he had met his future wife and decided to change the ending of the film.

6. Runaway Bride

Maggie runs from another wedding after falling for Ike. She gives him her running shoes and tells him that she knows things will be difficult but she will regret it forever if she doesn't ask him to be with her. Any movie that people change for the better is the best, and it definitely helps that it's a proposal scene.

7. Sex In the City

After everything John put Carrie through, we were all ready to forgive him with open arms when he proposed to her in the closet. This is exactly the ending I needed to see in this movie/series; Carrie finding love. Also the fact that it was a completely surprising Cinderella moment made it perfect.
