Honestly, I would love that. I hate surprises. I hate feeling like my SO has all the “power” in the situation we’re in – he gets to pick the ring, the time and the place. I think what you have planned sounds so sweet and so mutual. To be honest, I’m a little jealous!

@Leasli:  My parents decided together that they were getting married. There was no proposal. I think that your plans are amazing!

@Leasli:  At least you won’t have the horrible “will he” pang as you’ll know it’s coming and you can savour the moment 🙂

I think you are over thinking it. I think it’s very nice you picked it out together and planned the trip together.

I would try to relax and leave the rest up to him 🙂

It sounds like a great idea. Unlike so many of the Waiting Bees you have the joy of knowing how special your vacation will be and that you’ll be coming home engaged.

@tiff-tiff-tiff:  My parents didn’t have a proposal either. Instead, when my dad’s representatives asked my grandfather for permission, it was generally assumed that they were getting married when he gave the ok. Every now and then my mom still jokes about not getting her proposal.

It’s a nice way of getting engaged and celebrating at the same time! You’re so lucky to get your proposal in your favourite place in the world so enjoy it!
