I am going to feel so silly if I don’t get a christmas proposal because it’s all I have been able to think about for weeeeeks, haha… oh well. I know it’s coming so if it doesn’t happen at Christmas I guess I’ll just have to be excited that he’s going to catch me by surprise after all. But I looked at my calendar today and realized that holycrap, Christmas eve is NINE days away!!!?! We’re going to a party on Sunday. That could be the last party we go to together as just boyfriend and girlfriend. That could be the last SUNDAY of my LIFE that I am not engaged/married!??! Insane.
I kind of do hope that he proposes on xmas eve though, because then we can tell my whole family in person, the next day when we go for my family’s Christmas. Won’t lie, I’ve been envisioning that one over and over in my head too, haha. Although a tiny part of me is a little bit nervous about that… my SO gets along really well with most people in my family but one of my bitchier family members, maybe notsomuch, and in general his political views don’t match up with my family’s so I sometimes get really anxious if political topics get brought up. Or if said bitchy family member just starts a conversation with “SO, how about that political thing I feel strongly about that I know you feel the opposite but I’m pretending we’re both on the same page about? Huh?”
Just what if we do the whole ‘we have an announcement…. we’re getting married!’ and we are met with like … a 7.5/10 enthusiasm level or something? If I’m nervous about this should we avoid the all-at-once announcement and just informally tell people as they arrive? I just love the idea of a big announcement…I guess if one or two people are less than thrilled their facial expressions will betray that whether we tell people all at once or one by one. Maybe telling people as a group will drown out the grumps? Any thoughts?
Maybe he won’t even propose at Christmas. Maybe he’ll wait till spring or something, or my birthday. omg i will die of anticipation if he does this!!

First of all, I hope you get your Xmas proposal, I’m hoping for one too! 🙂
And I think go with the big announcement if you do. Who cares what the grumpy bums of the family think??!
Don’t overthink it though, you don’t want to be disappointed if he decides to hold off until after the holidays.
I think if you do get your proposal then you will just know naturally how to announce it. Go with what feels right 🙂

I am hoping for a Christmas proposal as well! I know it’s happening sometime before the end of the year but I hope it’s before/at Christmas so we can tell everyone at that time too.

I’m hoping for Christmas Eve too! (: and like you I’m a littler nervous about the initial announcement, but super excited at the same time. I really hope he ends up doing it Christmas Eve, sometimes I’m really sure it’ll happen and then other times I feel like it’ll never happen! Good luck! (:

@araneidae: I really hope you get your wish!! It’s such a romantic time of year!
I keep hoping for a Christmas proposal too! When we first started talking about epics (my aunt’s sister just started her own photog company) he was like “when would we take them, if we say, got engaged around christmas?” and he just keeps hinting!
buttttt… the other night he said he could see it happening in the next 18 months and that I wanted to be surprised and I will be!
Oh and not to mention that there was a charge on his bank account from the jeweler that we were looking at!
