    @plantobee:  This doesnt really apply to me bc we were at home, but where are you planning to do it? If at a restaurant or something, perhaps you could “stage” the scene beforehand and have the box waiting somewhere for you when you arrive? Or if in a hotel room, etc., you could just hide the box somewhere in the room …

    FI proposed with the ring in the box and after I said yes he put it on my finger. I think tht you can’t go wrong either way. She most probably won’t even remember. Good luck!

    Without…because he wanted to hide it. He gave me the box later.

    I’m sorry I should have elaborated a bit more. FI did it at home while getting ready for bed so I was getting into bed and he was just “putting his clothes away” when he turned around and dropped on one knee with the box in his hands.

    Mine proposed to me without the box but that’s because he proposed with a plastic toy ring, (long story.)  But later when my ring was ready, he presented it to me by opening the box and then taking it out and placing it on my finger.

    Mine was in a shell, we got engaged on the beach. Do you know where you’re planning to propose? Maybe you could slip the ring into something that would make sense for where it’s happening like my fiance did?

    I actually requested my FI to present the ring without the box long before he proposed. Maybe I’m just odd though haha. I thought it seemed sweeter and more meaningful for some reason…less commercial? Not sure if that makes sense. But I’m also not one for grand gestures, so I don’t know if that has anything to do with it.

    my husband put my ring in my birthday card. it was a little girl’s card that came with a poster folded up like a flower. it was tucked in there and he had written “will you marry me?” inside of it.

    @bossypants:  Cute!

    No box – he had it in a plastic bag but took it out of the bag before holding it out for me to see. LOL

    We were at Disney World, at the Magic Kingdom, all day. He proposed after the fireworks at night. So he actually carried the ring in his WALLET all day!! Right before the fireworks, he went to the bathroom and transferred it to his pocket.

    It’s funny because at one point during the day we were going to buy a bottle of water. He started to grab his credit card out, and I wondered why he wasn’t just using cash? It was just a bottle of water. But the ring was in where the cash was!

    But I think it worked out well for him that way.
