Hi Women in Waiting!
So, I’ve been under a lot of work stress lately, and I had a wild dream last night! My boyfriend and I were in Chicago (where I’m from, I live in LA now) and we were at a play. A pickpocket nabbed my purse while we were at the play and ran off with it. Somehow I managed to grab it as he ran away, but then as we were walking to our hotel, my boyfriend pulled me into this grassy lot (abandoned construction site, it looked like!), got down on one knee, and gave me this HIDEOUS ring. The ring was a TIGER’S HEAD with bronze and brown details and was huge, and it didn’t fit! I remember I was so disappointed in my dream, and upset that he would propose to me after I got pickpocketed! Later on in the dream, I admitted that I didn’t like the ring, and he somehow got me a RUBY engagement ring with prongs shaped like elephants and tigers, and diamonds embedded on the inside of the ring. So strange!
So.. yeah! Crazy stuff! Anyone else having weird engagement dreams?! I think this signifies that I’m getting tired of waiting and am hoping I won’t be disappointed (I don’t think I will cuz we picked out my dream ring together.. but maybe he’ll find a stunning tiger ring and will get that instead) ;o)

Strange! I never had any strange engagement dreams. But I’ve had some pretty off the wall wedding dreams.

I’ve had two, although one was more vivid.
The first, he took me to this place that looks like a garden, with glass walls all around it. He took me to a wall and showed me something he made for me. it was some type of shadow box, with lots of shelves in it, with miniture replicas of things I like. Once I looked at them, he turned me around and asked me. I can’t remember the ring, because it ended then.
The second dream was short, I just had the ring on my hand and I was thinking, WOW, that diamond is little! (I’m not a golddigger, but it was tiny, very tiny!LOL!)

I’ve had two…
In the first, he did it in the elevator at a hotel in downtown Houston…he tried to get down on one knee, but it was a moving elevator and he couldn’t balance…and when the elevator got to the floor we were stopping on both of our families were sitting there waiting. But I was upset because the elevator ride wasn’t long enough for everything he wanted to say, so our families ended up awkwardly staring and watching for most of it. It was weird.
In the second one, we had gone to take pictures in the bluebonnets on the side of the highway with my roommate and her boyfriend (we do this every Spring, it’s a Texas thing), and he proposed in the middle of the field of bluebonnets while my roommate had the camera. It was perfect and I’m secretly hoping that’s how it happens!
I don’t think I even saw or though about the ring in either dream though…

I had some before we were engaged, I and told my FI about them. It actually influenced the ring he ended up buying me, so I’m glad I told him!

@Sweetheart- congrats on the recent engagement! At least no more crazy dreams for you!
As for me, I’ve definitely had them and am glad I’m not the only one!

Oh wow! That’s extreme haha.
I haven’t had any proposal dreams but have had two ceremony dreams – both were a little weird (odd people there/in the BP/doing odd things etc) but it was okay because I was happy to be getting married and just went with the flow 🙂

Wow – i have had a few in the past weeks/months:
First one he gave me a lump of wood the size of a brick, but it had a finger hole in it and that was my ring. He was really offended when i laughed at it and was actually expecting me to wear it… I told the BF about it and he said – damn ill have to take it back!
Last night i has another dream that he gave me a futuristic ring which was just a metal band, but it somehow had a memory card in it and it was like one of those digital photo frames, but he had filled it with flags of the world – because i love to travel?
I think it is maybe sending me a little loopy?

HAHA! That is so funny. It reminds me of one really crazy engagement dream….OK so it was Christmas Eve and I knew in my mind that it was going to be a special night. My best friend and her boyfriend were there and they got engaged that night and I knew my turn was coming. So I was up in the attic somewhere and her comes my BF with avril lavign (sp) on his shoulder and she was singing to me and handed me the ugliest ring i have ever seen in my life!!!! It was gold and had dangly things hanging off of it and it was just ugly. He didnt say a word to me and just went back down from the attic. So weird haha. I just remember being really dissapointed.
I think this stems from my fear of my BF buying me an ugly ring in real life. He has bought me jewelry before and it was…um….questionable. So, of course I’m a little worried!!! I try to leave hints all the time. I hope he gets them 🙁

@jm1773 – “hints” do not work!!! I dont know if your boyfriend if as clueless as mine, but i have now learnt that hints and being subtle doesnt work! If you are worried, i would just talk to him about it… use the funny dream as a way to bring it up!

I got engaged on Feb. 13, 2009 but let me tell you the few weeks before I had CRAZY engagement dreams. I had no idea it was actually happening until like 30 seconds before it actually did, but the dreams totally freaked me out. I dreamed that my bf (now fiance) proposed with a cheap, plastic, flower ring. I had the dream for a couple weeks straight but still didn’t really BELIEVE that he was going to ask me any time soon. Even as it got close to Valentine’s Day, I was discussing it with my girl friends, all whom thought that he wouldn’t do it right around V-Day, but to my surprise, he did! It just goes to show that sometimes your intuition knows what is going on and can sense something happening before you even realize it! So hopefully your dreams mean something is going to happen soon!! I hope it does and when it does, definitely let us all know the story!!

I just had my first dream last week and a second dream last night.
The first dream my boyfriend took me to a little Italian restaurant right by our house. He kept asking me if I saw the special menu, over and over again. Somehow then I knew he was going to ask me. We sat down and the last meal on the special menu read “Kristin’s Marriage Chicken” Not engagement chicken! And this was an actual meal you can order, and the chicken dish at this Italian restaurant happens to actually be my favorite for real! Underneath it was a note from my boyfriend. He proposed but I didnt see a ring in my dream!
My second dream was last night and very fuzzy. It somehow got engaged and wrote “Im engaged” on my hand with a pen. I was showing people privately because I wasn’t sure if it was official yet. LOL
I don’t know what this means but I hope I don’t have these dreams for long, I will go nuts!!
