This happened to me. Don’t get upset if he doesn’t do it exactly when he said he would! He may just want it to actually be a surprise. I’d give him a couple months after when he said he was going to do it before you say anything else about it. I know if I had point-blank guessed the date, my SO probably would have changed the plan.

If you don’t have a wedding Pinterest, it might be a good time to start one! Just make sure you unlink it from your FB or make your boards secret so no one thinks you’re cray.

A similiar thing happened to me – back in April, FI had told me he would propose before his family vacation in July, and he didn’t do it until THREE days before vacation!!! I was dying the whole time.. 

The biggest piece of advice I can give you is to try really hard not to anticipate it and don’t get disappointed if you think that there’s a *perfect* time and he doesn’t do it. Now that he knows you are definitely anticipating it, he might try to throw you off a few times. Don’t get crabby or pouty about it, just enjoy your time with him!!! πŸ™‚ Very exciting!!

(Oops, just looked up at Effie’s post, I guess we think alike!!) πŸ™‚

I’m in a similar situation. We’ve been together for 6.5 years. SO gave a timeline earlier this summer by telling our close friends that we’d be engaged by the end of the year. Two months ago he took me looking at rings and said he needed to get my finger sized. About three weeks ago he went on a shady shopping trip with two of his close friends. (Shady because he doesn’t shop…ever!) And then he stopped mentioning anything about rings, weddings, honeymoon…nothing! I thought maybe, just MAYBE he had bought a ring!

Well, after doing laundry one day, I went to put his socks away and saw a receipt from a jewelry store in there!

Don’t judge me…but I looked at it…it was for an e-ring! lol 

The wait is killing me, but I’ve vowed to keep my mouth shut (to him!) so I don’t unintentionally ruin anything he’s planning. I’m having a hard time concentrating on anything other than thinking about it too…

Hang in there, paint your nails, and pamper yourself…it’s coming! πŸ™‚

Oh girl I’m right there with you. My ring is in the house and I know he proposing within the next month. He’s told me several times he will propose by the end of January.

He has a really hard time keeping secrets so I know he’s picked up the ring.. we picked out the setting and diamond together and he let it slip that he picked it up. He offered to show me a picture because he’s so excited but I refused because I want to keep something a surprise.

Sadly I have no real advice except for go get a manicure! πŸ˜‰

Congrats!!

Oh, how exciting! Okay, here’s my advice. Keep yourself OCCUPIED. It shouldn’t be too hard with the approaching holiday.

Get to the gifts. Buy your gifts for everyone and elaborately wrap them. I mean like, wrap each one in a box and wrap it with a lovely bow that you hand tie. Or do brown paper and tie them with twine and slip a handcut snowflake under the twine on each one. Trust me, this will take forever and occupy several hours of your time.

Make gifts. Bake something. Knit something. Just decide on something that will take a day or two to accomplish. If you decide to bake cookies for everyone, you can spend a day baking and another day packaging them up.

Write personal notes in all of your Christmas cards. It’ll take forever.

Look at houses online and day dream.

Volunteer at a toy drive or as a bell ringer.

Basically, just keep yourself as busy as humanly possible. And the next fourteen days will simply fly by. πŸ˜‰
