Japanese how-do-you-say...

Hi Linguaphiles! I'm in need of some basic Japanese help, and this situation only comes up ONCE, so I have no previous experience in how to say it! (And I can't find the "how-do-you-say" community - is it still there?)

My boyfriend of four years has just asked me to marry him. I said yes. ^^ I'm writing Christmas/New year's cards to my three Japanese host families and would like to know how to say "he proposed to me" or "he asked me to marry him" and then, "so we're engaged now." Can anyone help? I've got the rest of the letters okay, but I'm not sure what to say here (all I know is that "to marry" is 結婚する) and my Japanese dictionary is unfortunately in England at the moment, while I'm in France. 

Thanks so much! I'd like to get these cards in the mail tomorrow, so this is sort of an"as soon as you have a free moment..." kind of post. ありがとう!
