    I knew he ordered aring only because he was keeping one old ring (his) home and i told him he will never use it so he can as well sell the gold and use it for his band later.. Well one day it was not there anymore plus he was throwing in al the “yeaah one day when i maybe consider buying you any ring….” Jokes:-)) all in all it took maybe a month til he proposed because he picked a date special to us. Eont stress and dont expect it everywhere, just go with it it will be perfect anyway:-)

    amberback:  I only had to wait one week after I suspected she had the ring!! I hope you don’t have to wait long! How exciting!!!

    Don’y worry about how you will react!! I always thought that I was going to cry (I always cry when I’m really happy), but I was in so much shock that I couldn’t! I felt like I was going to have a stroke. Lol

    I texted my family first to tell them. That’s when I found out that literally my whole family already knew. Most of my friends knew too because they were in on the proposal plans. My FI had sent them pics of the ring already too lol! I then took to FB and IG…I was too excited not to share.

    Good luck! I can’t wait to see the ring and hear your story when you get it!

    amberback:  Welcome to the bee! I’m in a similar boat as you..My ring came in about 2 weeks ago, but I have no idea when the proposal is coming. Here and there, I’ll get little jokes about how he is busy planning how he wants to do it and I know he has told my mom and best friend his plans, but I’m getting so antsy not knowing anything.

    I’m super jeaous you got to try yours on – I’m not allowed to see mine until it’s on my finger. Which I suppose is how it’s traditionally done, but I’m just so tired of waiting!

    amberback:  Thanks, I hope it happens soon for you too! So exciting and so sweet that he got a band for you too. One of my first thoughts every day when I wake up is “Is today THE day?!”

    I could care less how mine does it anymore either, the question with it is what matters 🙂

    I helped pick out the ring from a custom jeweller online so I knew what it would look like….. He told me kind of accidentally after a half marathon that he told my dad he had bought a ring the day before. So I knew it was coming! The funniest part of the story is that the delivery company brought it to OUR HOUSE instead of dropping off at the office, and I work from home so I actually had to sign for the package and pay the customs charge haha. He asked me the next day so I didn’t have to suffer long knowing it was in the house!

    amberback:  I called my mom, dad, and brother and then I kind of let my parents spread the word to family beyond that. Then that night we happened to be going to a barbecue with all our best friends so that took care of that!  I waited to tell my best friend in the whole world in person and her reaction was priceless and she was SO excited!! 

    I didn’t know my ring was coming but I would imagine that you’ll be so excited that it’ll be a surprise no matter what! Just enjoy it and don’t over think it now! Let the moment happen!

    amberback:  We talked about it, and he let me know that my ring was being made, but did not give me a timeline for when he was going to propose.  I went crazy (internally) during the wait, but luckily for me, he did not wait too long.  Maybe a couple of weeks before proposing.

    I’m still waiting  And he picked up the ring in February…  I know some guys propose the same day…others take months. I remember one of the bees here waited over a year. I hope your SO doesn’t keep you waiting too long…. For the most part I don’t mind at all, but every now and then I do get (brief) waves of irritation.

    My FI told me alllll about my ring and STILL managed to give me a surprise proposal. He got the ring in March and proposed last Saturday when it was supposed to be a “girls weekend’! It was totally unexpected even though I knew he had the ring because of the way he (and my friends) worked it out. It was seriously the BEST surprise ever and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way even though I was pulling my hair out for a bit waiting for him to propose.  

    Just don’t push it and let him do it his way, on his own time. He may take a little bit or it may happen right away…either way I’m sure the proposal will be amazing!

    Good luck!
