Just take a few deep breaths and relax! That’s super exciting news! Go and have fun with it! Ring shopping is so much fun….and it sounds like it’s a big step in your relationship. Just appreciate it for what it is and enjoy yourself 🙂

Very exciting. 🙂 Just wait for a free day that you both have and on that day in the early afternoon or something just say, “Hey, you’re free today right? Wanna swing by somewhere real quick so we can find rings?” Super casual. No pressure. Direct. If he happens to say that for whatever reason today isn’t  good day, ask him to give you a day so you can make sure you don’t plan too much that day.

This is wonderful news! 🙂

I agree. Be very casual and laid back about it. In order to not seem pushy, I would personally give it a week and then bring it up again. So in a week, suggest a particular day in advance to plan for it, or if you are both out and free, suggest to stop by a store to browse rings.

Congrats on the progress! I am so excited for you! Good luck!

YEA!!! How exciting!! I am in a similar boat.  Ring shopping was brought up a few weeks back, but we still have not gone.  I need to casually bring it up sometime this week since we both have next weekend off and it would be the perfect time.  Good luck!!!

That’s so exciting!!! We pretty much had the same conversation.  It was like:

Him:  I’m gonna go look at rings Saturday.

Me:  Ok.  (inside – ahhhhhhh!)

Silence for a minute….

Him:  Do you wanna come?  I have no idea where to start…

Me:  YES!

I have to say I did not play it cool, but that’s not who I am lol and he knows that.  It took us a few weeks of looking places to really decide.  Good luck!!!

I dont think you should ask him what his budget is; sometimes thats a personal thing.  My fiance took me ring shopping and we looked at different shapes, and he took it from there.  Budget was never discussed because honestly that was a personal decision for him.  He still doesn’t know that I know how much my ring was (and I only found out because I saw the appraisal/receipt.

I also think you shouldn’t bring it up again.  You’ve made it crystal clear that you’re interested, he knows, and now you should give him a little space.  I know you’re excited, as you should be (!), but try to keep calm and carry on.  If its meant to be, it will be.

I never went ring shopping with DH. When I was waiting, I would pester him with emails full of links to rings that I liked!
