While a public proposal might not be to everyone's taste, one of the distinct advantages is that there will be no shortage of cameras around to capture the moment.
We bet Jacqueline Jossa got a kick out of looking back at the exact moment her new fiancé Dan Osborne popped the question, after he got down on one knee in front of 40 of her closest friends and family on holidays in Greece last month.
The pair were there to celebrate Jacqueline's sister's wedding, and it seems Dan took advantage of the gorgeous location and family gathering to propose to his girlfriend of one year. Posting a picture of the moment to Instagram today, Jacqueline wrote, "One of the best moments of my life."
The couple, who have one daughter together, have already been making plans for their upcoming wedding, set to take place in England. They've even discussed the possibility of more children, though five-month-old Ella may have to wait a while for a little brother or sister.
"I don't want to lose my body ahead of the biggest day of my life. If the time is right we'll start trying after the wedding," Eastenders star Jacqueline told OK! magazine last week.
"I'd really like to have a boy, so if we have another baby and it's a girl, I'd be up for having one more," she explained. "I have a feeling I only produce girls, though, so Daniel could end up being out numbered."
Sounds like Jacqueline knows what she wants…
