After deciding to take a scuba diving excursion in Honduras to celebrate Amy’s 50th birthday, Bob decided the best place to plant his knee was on a soft bed of sand along the ocean floor.

4. Space



For a love that was out of this world, Shawn knew he had to propose in a big way. So with a little luck and a lot of skill, he set out to send his fiancé’s ring into space!
