    I would hate for DH to have proposed to me in front of people at my birthday.

    I think make it a different day and have it intimate!

    I would prefer a private proposal as opposed to one in front of everyone. Each to their own though.

    Whether it's on a birthday or not doesn't bother me, but I personally really dislike people proposing in front of other people. To me it makes it feel like the person can't say no without huge embarrassment. For some couples it might be ok, when they've talked about getting married for a while, they're both absolutely positive they're both on the same page about it etc, but twice I've seen that look pass a woman's face before she said yes....and I knew she wasn't sure, but all her friends and family were gasping and cheering already...what else could they do?

    In my experience, it also means friends and family flock around each of the people immediately, congratulating etc. that special moment right after the proposal where you're just wrapped up in each other seems to get lost.

    I'd be happy with a birthday proposal, but I wouldn't want it done in front of all my family and friends, maybe earlier in the day just the two of you somewhere special.
