Congratulations!!! I’m so excited for you. I’m in the same boat as you. My S/O will have my ring by this Thursday. I’m hoping he doesn’t wait either. Isn’t it such a great feeling to know someone wants to spend the rest of their life with you? I always find myself thinking about it. Planning a wedding scares me too! I’ve already begun searching locations and I’m already overwhelmed and over it! lol

Hoping he doesn’t have you wait too long and please try not to stress too much about wedding planning. Can’t wait for you to get it and see it – hope it’s just as you hope!

My SO has mine too… Not that accidentally let it slip, I’ve tried it on and I stare at a pic of it on my finger more than I probably should. We have an August timeline but want a 1.5-2 year engagement so I can plan slowly during med school. I’m so excited! I can also get a kitten August 1 when our lease renews. I have a kitten countdown on my phone, which I kinda also see as an engagement countdown tho it is hopefully before then

Mine let it slip too, 2 weeks before he proposed. He said, “I hope you like the ring I got. Um, I mean get. The ring I get.” He’s so not a good liar though, so I knew he had slipped. Hope yours is on your finger soon!

SomedayHisBride:  That’s so cute, congrats!!! My FI also got drunk and let it slip that he had a ring for me! We’d only been together about a year at that point, and he was drinking (a lot) at his best friends birthday party (I was DD). I guess his friends wife was asking when he was going to propose and they thought I overhead (I didn’t) so he brought it up and asked and then told me he had a ring for me!

Then he waited 3 months to propose, damn it.

SomedayHisBride:  his family has lots of heirloom jewelry from his moms side of the family- like a whole safe deposit box full! I got to choose between like 10 cool antique rings. I went in thinking I wanted the 2.1 carat tiffany solitaire in yellow gold. I didn’t love it on my tiny hands. I ended up falling in love with his grandmas ring from 1941. It’s engraved with his grandparents initials and the date they got engaged. They were married over 50 years. the stone is little, like .4 carats but it fits my lifestyle more and the antique Art Deco style is amazing

SomedayHisBride:  Congrats! I think knowing he had it would drive me bonkers!! I’m so glad I didn’t know that my FI had the ring! He had it for like 3 months before he proposed because my sister got engaged when he was gonna do it, so he waited even longer.

Can you maybe hint around that he doesn’t have to wait until October? I don’t think I could be that patient! haha

SomedayHisBride:  Congratulations!!! It would kill me knowing my FI had my ring and was just waiting lol!! Also, I know it’s hard, but try not to put a lot of pressure on yourself for a “perfect” wedding. At the end of the day, as long as you and your SO are married, then it is perfect. Everything else is just details 🙂

Congrats. Waiting really is the hard part. Hopefully the proposal and ring live up to your expectations. 

About the prefect wedding: remember that if everything goes wrong, you will still be married to your love at the end of the day. Don’t stress the details, and take it all one step at a time (set one thing before you even think about the next thing).
