Hi Bees! Life has been sooo busy lately! So, my boyfriend told me the “day” is in December because he chose a date on the solstice… which you can easily find out. But I’m wondering if he’s just trying to throw me off. I think maybe he may choose an equinox date. I don’t know why, but I have that gut feeling.
Anyways, we’re discussed the wedding and he told me one of his cousins is looking for a center stone for me (he has resources available). He has already asked my dad’s permission. We have a rough budget and have made some decisions on color scheme and I’ve chosen a centerpiece. It’s all going well… but now I’m not happy with waiting until December!
So what do you think…. would the future groom TELL you the date and ac tually follow-through, or would he surprise you?

He may be trying to throw you off and propose sooner. Trust me, if he has already done all that, he will probably be proposing sooner. My FH told me that he would propose by Christmas, but not on Christmas Day, EVER! Well, we became engaged on Christmas Day. lol

My FH told me he would propose around my birthday (June). He proposed at the start of December (6 months early). 🙂

Mine completely threw me off. As far as I knew he was totally broke and nowhere near affording a ring. I used to get so upset about it and it turns out he had the ring the whole time… Oops 🙂

Ugh what is with the whole “throwing off” thing?! I wish men woudn’t do that!! I also don’t think he should flat-out tell you the exact date he’s going to propose though, haha! Do you think your man would really do that? I hope it’s sooner!! 🙂

I hope not! I told him I wanted a surprise. I think he’ll surprise me… I hope. 🙁

I think its coming sooner. You should know him are you getting any telling signs he’s just throwing you off? I think if he’s that much into the planning I cant see why he’ll wait that long unless there’s some pressing reason

Well, he’s been talking about and alluding to the ring hard core since speaking with my dad. I would say at least once a day he cracks a joke about proposing. 🙂

Since I’m super nosey, my FI threw me off saying the proposal probably wouldn’t happen till Feb due to finances, but it came mid-Dec! I knew he was being sneaky, but you can never be sure. Sounds like he’s trying to throw you off as well. I wish I let myself be more surprised, instead of always questioning things so since it’s coming…just let it happen and try not to think too hard. You will be happier when it’s outta no where 😉

Wow Artichoke! I hope it comes sooner but just to be safe you should pretend to yourself that it WILL happen in December.
Its only like 5 mos, which is long but before the new year. And knowing that you can kind of start to scope out what you want for your wedding and guest list and etc. (Trust me its a bit stressful, I’m glad I did a tiny bit of preliminary sourcing and planning).
Then if it comes sooner, awesome! If not, you won’t be as insane over it.
Either way enjoy knowing its coming!!! Yay!!!!
Here’s to hoping its asap!

My FI and I had told each other we wanted to get married on 11/11/11 over a yr and half ago. One day we were out to eat and were talking about how close the date was coming up and that he should propose soon if we were going to get married then. But I didn’t think he was going to do it anytime soon, I just thought he was mentioning it. A month or two later he proposed!

I helped one of my dear friends propose to his girlfriend by telling her (we’re close too) that he was going to propose at Christmas. The reason why I deliberately misled her was because HE really wanted it to be a surprise, and she’s really good at ferreting out information. So I offered to throw her off the scent, and she was really glad that I did. We joke about it all the time now.

I can’t imagine someone telling you the exact date they’re going to propose. Way to take the suprise out of it! Although I’m DYING to know when my BF is going to propose, I don’t think I’d want to know the exact date either, for the same reasons. Maybe the month. 🙂
It’s nice that he gave you something to shoot for, though. Just pretend like it is really going to happen on that date (you know it’s not, right?) and it’ll help you get through the next 5 months of waiting (hopefully less of course!)
