Just don’t get your heart set on any of these plans until you are able to plan with your SO. I do chit-chat a bit more than I should with my mom and sisters, but it’s often better to keep things like this to yourself. It kinda sucks to go crazy waiting for the ring and dealing with your mom’s/grandma’s impromptu planning at the same time, and your man probably wouldn’t appreciate you telling people you are getting engaged before he proposes. Basically, it’s putting the cart before the horse and can cause more trouble than it’s worth. I know it’s hard; believe me, I do, but try to put a lid on all this.

I got really wrapped up in wedding chat and Pinterest after we discussed and picked a ring. Then, I thought for sure the ring was coming soon. still waiting 3 months later and getting pretty down about it and feel embarrassed that I got so ahead of myself with the wedding chat. Try to dial it back so you don’t make every minute of waiting feel like a week…. unless you already know the timeline of the proposal…

On the otherhand, my FI had me looking at rings to see what I liked and proposed less than a week later. I was thinking we were about 3 months away from a proposal. So you never know!

@Andthepupmakes3:  super frustrating! From the first time we ever looked at rings to the time we got engaged, it was 1.5 years… After four years of dating!  🙂 

But I wouldn’t trade it for the world. 🙂 Good luck to you two!!

@Andthepupmakes3:  Know that feeling, we picked the ring in March, actually went to start payments in April and it is finally being delivered TODAY. I could not shut up about it for a while! I’m being very mindful now, as I suspect SO is trying to surprise me a week early…;)
