Congratulations!! It’s a fantastic story, and knowing that your FI can laugh about it now means that you will be able to “go with the flow” over any hiccups in your wedding planning, or future marriage together. He sounds like a fantastic guy, and you sound like a wonderful couple.

That’s adorable! Make sure your FI knows you think it was a perfect proposal, though. It sounds to me like he was pretty upset. Maybe he thought the proposal being “ruined” was a bigger deal than you did? Remind him that things like both of you leaving the suitcase behind are why you are perfect for each other! Congratulations on your engagement!

@Sornusa:  I laughed out loud! What a fun proposal, and great story to tell. Glad you had a sense of humor about it, this could have went seriously awry. Congratulations!

I think that is an awesome, super-romantic proposal story, as well as absolutely hilarious!  I love that your FI went through with everything and didn’t let the lack of ring stop him from doing it!  Congratulations and best wishes to you both!  Can’t wait to see pictures of your ring!!

PS:  My FI also did a destination proposal and right in the middle of the romantic setting (gaslit courtyard of the Peninsula Grill in Charleston, SC) and his down-on-one-knee heartfelt speech, the wooden ring box got completely stuck in his suit pocket.   He had to completely stop, stand up and work the box free.  By that point, we were both laughing so hard at the botched moment that I almost peed my pants.  No matter what goes wrong, it’s still a magical moment!

Congrats! My FI proposed while we were away and did the same thing as yours. Trying to down play the not having the ring. He didn’t forget the ring but he made me pull over like three times to check his luggage and spent the weekend super serious. Lol he must have been super relieved when I said yes!
