    I absolutely did know it was coming. We were ready to get married for a while, but Fiance couldnt find a job. We had shopped for ring styles together, etc…Once he got a job I knew a proposal was impending. About two months later, he planned this very extravagant meal and I knew. 🙂 Still didn’t take the romance out of it for me, even though I knew it was coming! 🙂

    • Wedding: April 2012

    My Fiance and I had been together for 3 years and live together.  We went ring shopping in February of 2010 and decided on what we liked =).  He didn’t buy anything then because I wanted to be surprised.  I knew the proposal was coming in the next 6 months or so, but I didn’t know when it was going to happen. 

    My guess was that it would happen in July, around my birthday.  In April, we took a trip to Italy and I told him if he was thinking about proposing in Italy I didn’t think it was a good idea to travel with a ring like that, and that it would make me paranoid on the trip if I was thinking the whole time he might propose! 

    So it actually happened in May 2010 (I was totally surprised by the date it happened and I had no idea he had gone and picked up the ring the day before!)  We were going out to dinner and he started dropping hints though so I was like, Oh…I think he’s going to propose tonight!  =)

    we knew about it.. Cuz he has to come to my parents first, meet them, be interogatted by my dad, and all that old fashioned culture stuff – nothing special at all..only thing was cute wa the fact that he travelled half way across the world to meet my parents. <3

    My fiance and I had talked about our future plans together and we knew we wanted to be married sooner rather than later. He asked me when I thought an ideal time to be engaged was, and we both agreed it was around the one year mark. We had planned a vacation about that time and I knew he would propose to me then. It just seemed romantic to propose while on a trip and in a beautiful city.

    We had a house together and had gone ring shopping 6 months prior and I knew we’d probably get married, but I had NO CLUE he was going to propose when he did, which is why I pretty much had a heart attack when he did it.  I’m talking hysterical sobbing, red face, mascara everywhere, shock.

    We’ve been together for 10 years, so I knew it was coming in a sense.  But when exactly, I wasn’t sure.  We had looked at rings and I didn’t know he had bought one.  I had a feeling he might propose on our anniversary but then totally forgot about it because I was so busy and overwhelmed that day with work.


    Needless to say, when he DID pop the question, all my worries melted away~

    I was completely surprised.  We’d been together for about 2 years.  We had talked about “when we’re married’ but never specifics.  We had been living together for about 6 months and in my mind, I thought maybe we’d get engaged after a year.  Needless to say he had other ideas!  We never discussed or looked at rings.  He got a girl at work to help him and went with a classic round solitaire.  I love that he put thought into it and did it himself.  And, to me, it was so much more fun that I was surprised rather than expecting it.
