A good wedding proposal video will make you laugh, cry and most definitely smile.
In the video above by Cosmopolitan.com, we watch a mashup of some of the most popular proposal videos online today. From flash mobs to magic tricks, these couples pulled out all the stops before pulling out that sparkling ring.
But of course, not all extravagant ideas make for a good proposal story. Remember that guy who used a seven-car blockade to propose to his girlfriend and then landed himself in jail?
Even big rings can be a bad sign. Experts say large engagement rings are linked to higher divorce rates.
So if your significant other hasn't been planning your engagement since the moment you met, or if they couldn't afford to get you the diamond you've been dreaming about, don't worry — sometimes simple really is best.
