"I knew my wife was waiting for the Disney/DSW Glass Slipper Collection to be released, because she talked about it all the time. I hadn’t seen her this excited since…well, ever! So I decided the perfect place to ask her to marry me would be at DSW, when the shoe came into the store. I worked everything out with the incredibly helpful store manager beforehand. I hid in the back of the store while my wife looked for her size. When she couldn’t find it, the manager walked over to help. My palms were getting sweaty as I clutched the box in the back room, waiting for the manager to alert me over the walkie-talkie when I should make my entrance. My heart was practically beating out of my chest by the time I heard my wife’s voice. I peeked out and saw her waiting, and slowly walked towards her, carrying the box with the ring planted in the shoe. She was so surprised to see me carrying the box she didn’t know what to expect. I got down on one knee and everyone in the store gathered around us. She opened the box and screamed as she saw the ring box inside. She was so excited and in such shock that she didn’t know what to do or say! Once she calmed down I asked her; she said yes, and the entire store broke out into applause. Needless to say, those are definitely her favorite pair of shoes now."
