We found that while some are elaborate and over the top -- Seal's proposal to girlfriend Heidi Klum in a custom built igloo on top of a glacier in un-chartered terrain comes to mind -- many stars take the more traditional route with rose petals and professions of love while on bended knee. Whether a grand declaration of love or a simple question from the heart, all of these proposal stories fed our desire for romance and love.
Here are a few of our favorites:
BILL RANCIC AND GIULIANA DEPANDI
The original "Apprentice", Bill Rancic, surprised girlfriend Giuliana DePandi when she arrived in Chicago. When DePandi got off the plane, a limo was waiting to whisk her away to a nearby helipad. When she arrived, she found Rancic waiting with champagne and her favorite deep-dish pizza. Rancic popped the question mid-air while the pair enjoyed a helicopter ride over downtown Chicago, including spectacular views of the holiday lights.
DEAN MCDERMOTT AND TORI SPELLING
With a little help from his sister, actor Dean McDermott co-ordinated a holiday proposal on a Christmas tree farm in Toronto, Canada for girlfriend Tori Spelling. With holiday lights strung a half a mile before, Spelling was treated to a festive display as the couple pulled up in a horse-drawn carriage. Upon getting out, McDermott lead his fiance'-to-be down the lit path to a table for two surrounded by decorated Christmas trees where he proposed over dinner.
