    @iDreamofJune:  Your poor future FI is prob disappointed, too! But he also had time to process the disappointment (knowing the email was sent, freaking out, then getting over it).

     

    Think of it this way:  you know he has the ring, but you DON’T know how, or when he will propose!

    Damn! It was just an honest mistake – he probably didn’t even think about it. Try not to let it ruin the moment!! Exciting things coming your way, lady!

    ETA: I voted hug your puppy, because that is literally the answer to everything. Do it!

    It was a mistake. I would  not expect that orderifrom rom a wish list meant that the email would go to you – I would have been too excited picking a ring I’d know shed love anAnne excited about proposing. 

     

    He did this with love and good intentions.

    For sure hug your puppy!

    Seriously though, lots of ladies pick their ring out and know all about it. Life isn’t a fairytale. Just be happy about spending your lives together!

    @iDreamofJune:  you’re welcome! I’m glad that came across right (didn’t want to sound rude!). The movies set us all up for expectations of fireworks and gondolas in Italy but most people don’t have anything grand or fancy! A least you know you will love your ring!

    @iDreamofJune:  Maybe I’m blunt, but I’m pretty sure if you booked the date for your wedding, there’s no surprise that you’re getting a ring soon. 😛 You’re emotionally already engaged. The ring is just a sign for everyone else to see. It doesn’t change anything! You’re just one step closer to wearing a beautiful, sparkly ring on your finger, and even closer to calling him your husband. 🙂 Yay!

    @iDreamofJune:  Awwwh don’t worry about it 🙂 If it makes you feel any better, my actual ring came to my actual inbox – at work… It was sent to my workplace because it was the most secure address we knew (there’s no one at home during the day), so I had to sit with it, unopened, under my desk for 6 HOURS, then take it home, give it to my FI, and then he just gave it back to me still in the fedex box. How’s that for romance?! I had to tell him to unwrap it and propose again properly! I’d also chosen the ring and knew exactly when it was coming. I was watching the fedex website like a hawk!

    I can understand your disappointment, really I can. But you have to laugh sometimes – life definitely isn’t a romantic film.. well maybe a romcom 🙂

    @iDreamofJune:  2 things…maybe he thinks a proposal is unnecessary since you’ve already decided to get married and booked a venue. The second thing, seeing it online and seeing it in person are two completely different things! You will still be in awe when it’s on your finger. I would still talk to him about how you really feel about a proposal and a surprise. He’s a guy, guys are dense sometimes. Make sure to put up a pic when you get it!

    I ordered my own ring and my heart still raced when he asked me the following week. It will still be special!

    I’m going with it was a mistake.  He likely feels really bad about it.  Something similar happened to me.  I started a new job and got an email from a designer purse store thanking me for my recent purchase.  I clicked on it and it was a purse that I had been eyeing earlier that month but thought it was way too much.  My boyfriend bought me the purse and wanted to surprise me.  He had given the store my email address so that if something went wrong with it and I needed to get it fixed/cleaned what not, the store would be able to find my info easier.  He had no idea within an hour of him buying it I would get an email… and he really wanted to surprise me.  I wouldn’t worry too much about it.  I’m sure he’s learned from this and you won’t get any more emails as he’ll make sure his is on every website.  I’m sure he’ll still manage to surprise you!  Chin up, he loves you very much and I’m certain he didn’t mean for you to get the email.

    @iDreamofJune:  All the girls at work wanted me to open it, but I held firm! Haha. Seriously, the other posters are right – even though you know he has the ring, he’ll still surprise you with the hows and wheres. And if you ordered online like I did, the ring itself will still be a surprise. Mine looked even more beautiful than in the pictures, and I’m sure yours will too.

    I don’t really see how the surprise is ruined for you…you know he is going to propose, you already have a venue. Wouldn’t you assume he already has the ring? Just because you saw an email doesnt give away when/how/where he will propose.
