Yay I love this thread already!! Your woman sounds super sweet!! And I love your ring.

I got engaged in December, but since I haven’t posted much about it, I’ll post it here! 

I’m obsessed with Christmas, and there is this park where I live that they turn into a huge light show… So she took me to the biggest tree (of lights) and proposed under it! I picked out the ring so I knew it was coming, but still special regardless! 

 

Ignore my nails needing to be done & especially ignore the quality of the pic. I saw my ring on pinterest and that picture looks 100x better!

Aaaaand I’m adding this just because I love it. RIght after she proposed!

@LadyAprill:  Aww that’s one of the sweetest, cleverest proposal stories I’ve ever heard, congratulations! My proposal also had a hotel room and chocolate strawberries and champagne afterwards, so I know firsthand how totally wonderful that is lol.

And your ring is gorgeous, I especially love the milgrain! Will your FI be getting an engagement ring as well? And if so, will it be the type with a center stone or more like a wedding band?

@LadyAprill:  That is such an awesome proposal story!!  I even got a bit teary eyed! 🙂 Congrats to you both.

I hope you don’t mind me posting my engagement story…even if I’m straight, and not LGBT.  

My DH took me away for an engagement weekend…I went into the weekend knowing that I was *finally!!* getting engaged, but that didn’t stop my excitement at all.  DH kept me guessing all day long on when/how he would propose…all the way through the chartered sailboat ride, the 2 winery tours, the marina walk at sunset…all the way up until he proposed in our B&B bedroom right before dinner!  It was sweet and private and just so heartfelt.  The next day he took me to a jazz concert which was so cool.  It was such a wonderful weekend, he did such a good job at making the engagement weekend so special.  People thought our proposal story was odd because I knew I was getting engaged, and we had picked out the ring together, but I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

@LadyAprill:  my FI doesn’t want an engagement ring either! She wants a plain band with a single diamond for her wedding ring.

No romantic engagement story, but romantic story of how we met. 🙂 We met in Georgia, US, I’m from New York, he’s from Australia, so it was pretty much fate. 🙂 We spent a few days together, then continued to talk after we went home. We fell in love and were long distance for a year, and finally got to see each other in July. He stayed for three months and we decided to be engaged while he was here.

Such wonderful stories!

FI proposed on my 30th Birthday last year, we were in the Caribean on vacation and after a day at beach, we went to our rooms to shower, get ready for dinner and he suggested we go for a walk on the beach to watch the sun set. So that is what we did, the beach was empty at this point, just us, a sligh breeze, beautiful ocean and a setting sun. He pointed to something in the water and said look at that, so as I was looking he took that second to get on his knee and when I turned around to ask “look at what” there he was on his knee. I knew it was comming eventually (our 6 year anniv. was approaching) but I had no clue he would do it on vacation, or how he snuck the ring in the suitcase bc I packed lol I cried, he cried then I cried even more when he told me my whole family knew (even my father bc he asked for his permmison when we were last at my parents house).
