 jnuz:  Personally I don’t think it matters at all. You can take a random date, and it becomes special because it’s the day you proposed 🙂 Some individual women do really want cool numbers, and some specifically do or don’t want to be proposed to on a holiday, but generally I don’t think it’s a complicated thing 🙂 Good luck!

The date itself didn’t really matter much to me. I agree with PP – pick a date that already doesn’t have a significant meaning [unless it’s your anniversary], because it will become special once you propose.

jnuz:  Before I got engaged I did not want it to happen on a holiday or my birthday because I didn’t want to share that special day with anything else! My FI had the ring for about 3 months before he proposed, which included our 5 year dating anniversary & my birthday and he ended up proposing on Christmas morning – just the two of us (and our dog) in front of the Christmas tree and I honestly would not have it any other way! The day will be special to the two of you no matter what else might be going on in the world around you. 🙂 Good luck & congratulations!

neither my engagment date or wedding date had any signifacance prior.  but now that i am married, i have no reason to celebrate my engagement date, well i didn’t anyway, since we got married 7 months after the proposal.

jnuz:  The date doesnt realy matter to me. But when 4th of july came and went thats when I realized I would have loved it on our special day. But when the proposal did happen my sadness for the 4th went right out the window all that matters is Im going to spend the rest of my life with FI.

I wanted a random day, so I wouldn’t see it coming.

I didn’t care about the date. My best friend did specify that she didn’t want her, then, boyfriend to propose on a holiday (Valentine’s Day, Birthday, Christmas, New Years, etc.).

I’m not even sure what the date of my proposal was, lol. We got married, that’s the important one. 😛

Other than I didn’t want to get engaged on a holiday or birthday, any date was fine. Since that’s the date I got engaged, it’s an important date now 🙂

FI proposed on the night we moved in together.  It wasn’t a “special” date necessarily, but it was a ibg occasion to us!

The only reason I remember the proposal date is that we were on a beach and after the event I wrote the date and YES in the sand and posted that on Facebook to tell everyone our news. The important date is the wedding which you’ll decide together anyway.

If you’ve got the ring and you’re impatient, chances are your GF is impatient too, just go for it!

jnuz:  The actual date meant nothing to me until we were engaged. It was the place, the feeling, the ‘us’-ness to it that I loved.

He didn’t have a full plan made, and he nearly proposed every day between getting the ring and proposing. In the end, each of those ‘almost’s weren’t right and I’m glad that they didn’t pan out, so that we had the proposal we ended up having.

The date wasn’t important to me at all…I preferred that it was just a spontaneous proposal on a completely random date rather than being on an anniversary or birthday…

jnuz:  I never wanted it to happen on V-day (don’t celebrate it) any other day would have been fine. I’ll never forget that day and in it will be even more important since we choose to get married exactly a year from that date. She be happy and excited and as long as keep that day about the two of you the date wouldn’t matter.
