After Leaving Her At The Bar, Man Scores Epic Flip-Cup Proposal


He drove off while she was still in the bathroom, but she had no idea what he had planned for their family fun day of tailgating! 

Bryan Cross and Chelsea Maloney first met during a college game of flip-cup at a tailgate party, so when it came time for him to pop the question – he knew there was no better place than a flip-cup tailgate to recreate their first meeting and enter the next stage of their lives together! 

Having roped Chelsea’s family into the festivities, Bryan had the whole day planned out to the smallest of details, but with all the pressure and excitement building inside him, there was a bump in the road. 

“Funny story about out engagement day is that Bryan didn’t know I was in the bathroom and left me at the bar,” Chelsea tells “He clearly had a lot on his mind preparing to propose. I came out of the bathroom and called him asking where he was. Our family tested him as he hurried back to come get me apologizing thinking I had already left for the tailgate.”

Once at the tailgate with Chelsea’s family, Bryan and his best friend started getting the table set up for the perfect proposal and a life-altering game of flip-cup that Chelsea never saw coming!  

Thinking her team was winning, Chelsea rushed to get her cup flipped over as quickly as possible, but once she won a look of complete shock washed over her. On the bottom of the red Solo cup Bryan had written the words “Marry Me?” in white marker. 

As she realized what was happening, her shock turned into complete joy, and then into a flood of tears as Bryan got down on one knee and took her hand. 

Of course Chelsea said yes and threw her arms around Bryan with tears streaming down her face and the biggest smile you could imagine beaming across her face.
