Ok ok, so I posted to waiting list a couple weeks ago, but it took me a while to get doing this post. I am a wating bee! My SO and I met on Match.com almost 10 months ago and have been inseperable since. He is everything I could have asked for and never knew I could find in one person.
I have been a long time follower of wedding bee and didn’t quite understand how people knew they crossed the line from just dating to waiting…NOW I get it! He told me recently to get my ring sized so that when the time comes, he doesn’t have to clue me in and ask then, though I have a few hunches on when he will do it. We are going to Greece for two weeks in July as a gradution gift from my parents, and while my sister was convinced for quite some time he’d propose then, he said he wouldn’t be doing while on our vacation (that way I didn’t get my hopes up lol). I have a hunch it’ll be labor day weekend, because he mentioned how much he’d love for my family to be there and then a day later suggested be go to my parents for labor day weekend. Either way, he’s knows I’m on to him and he’ll change the date 😛 I do my best not ask question so here I am waiting patiently and speculatively!
Ok, picture time 😛 (I literally have no idea how to make these smaller, sorry!)

CONGRATULATIONS on being a Waiting (vs a “Dating”) Bee
My best advice…
Don’t just go get your ring size… actually begin looking to see what it is you like, don’t like, and what suits you and doesn’t
This can ONLY be determined by trying on rings.
Go alone, go with a GF, go with your SO
BUT GO !!
As not all rings look good on all fingers
(and it has less to do with Ring Size = Girth than it does Finger Length, and distance from the Base of your Ring Finger to the First Knuckle)
Do your research, do your homework… learn all you can about Engagement Ring options
There is lots of great info here on WBee as well as some wonderful on-line Websites
(Blue Nile has an excellent section on EDUCATION… and Diamonds http://www.bluenile.com )
So much to learn…
The traditional 4 Cs…
CARAT SIZE – CUT (Shape & Quality) – COLOUR – CLARITY
But also the modern C’s
CERTIFICATION – CANADIAN / CONFLICT FREE
As well as
COMFORT and COST
The more you research / know going in… then the better the experience will be for both of you.
AND the more ultimately you’ll LOVE / ENJOY for the long term the ring that is purchased / given to you
Hope this helps,
