Watch: Our Favorite Dramatic Wedding Proposals


With summer in swing, there's a high probability that if you're not already attending a wedding, you know someone who is. Inevitably, the often-retold proposal stories trigger a variety of emotions — from fatigue to joy to jealousy. But, ultimately, it's fun to hear how creative people get when proposing matrimony, so we compiled a blitz of movie and TV marriage proposals. Choice moments include fireflies that spell out "Will you marry me?" (The Nutty Professor), backhanded pleas like "I can't go all my life waiting to catch you between husbands" (Gone With the Wind), and more, which should put an end to any doubt about who has the best marriage-proposal stories: fictional characters!
