Hello..I’m new here and thought I would ask this question. My boyfriend and I have been ring shopping and he found the one he liked. I positive he has bought it. So my question is….If you know it’s coming and you know what the ring looks like, is it still as special as if it was a suprise?

@FinallyHappy: 100% yes.
I even figured out the DAY he was going to propose and it was still a wonderful experience.
It was all just so exciting and you never know exactly how he will act or how you will react so there still is an element of surprise even if you know it’s coming.
I am very excited for you!

@FinallyHappy:Definitely! My FI and I looked at rings for a couple months and I finally gave him a top 5 (I wanted some surprise!) He’s not the kind to sit around and wait on something. He does his research, finds the one he wants, then acts! So I knew it was coming.
He tried to throw me off a lot by telling me he’d never do it on a trip, because I would expect it. Well, 4th of July he decides to plan a trip. All my friends though he was going to propose but I didn’t because he said he wouldn’t on a trip — and he wouldn’t lie, would he?
Turns out he did propose and it was still so special! So thought out, so perfect, so us! Believe me, it will be perfect and special even if you know the minor details!

It sure is!
I picked out my setting in July of 2010. I assumed the ring was coming for my birthday, in August. I got the DSLR I’ve been wanting instead. I was a little sad, but loved my camera.
The ring didn’t become mine until Thanksgiving (Black Friday, to be exact). Per the paperwork, he picked up the ring on July 23.

I had a feeling it was coming sometime soon but it happened sooner than expected. He caught me off guard even though it was something we discussed a lot. We picked out my ring together, but the moment he slid that baby on my finger, it was just as amazing as I had imagined… if not more.

@FinallyHappy: Definitely! i had an idea of what my ring looked like since i only showed him a few options, and i knew the day it was going to happen because he planned a night away in charleston which isnt normal, im the planner. BUT it was the most special day of my live, i remember more details about that day than i do my actual wedding day.

Oh my God, yes! I picked out my own ring and knew the proposal was coming but he managed to surprise me even so. I think I swooned when I finally saw the ring. lol

@KatNYC2011: How did you figure out the day your SO was going to propose?

I designed my own engagement ring! Definitely didn’t make it any less special.
