I have this strong feeling that it’s going to be in April. When we originally discussed engagements, we talked about anywhere between March and May. Unfortunately, we needed to adjust our timeline because we are moving and saving for that and the ring at the same time meant something had to give. So we talked about being engaged in June at the very earliest.
My SO is pretty crafty, and I’m hard to surprise so I wouldn’t put it past him to somehow pull off getting the ring before June and asking me earlier than I expect. Anytime I ask him how the ring is coming along, he says he has no new news, but we’ve been together for 3 years and I KNOW he’s got new news, he just isn’t saying a damn thing (which I understand). I think he already has the ring and it’s hiding somewhere in our home, or it’s finished and he just hasn’t picked it up yet.
Then he was taking extreme interest in engagement parties and suddenly had all these opinions about ours, which was quite unlike him. And then he asked about nails and how long gel manicures last and how expensive they are. He also mentioned taking to me a restaurant where we had a very special moment together when we first met, and we haven’t been there in years. And finally, our roommates that we live with have also been much more interested in my engagement and wedding, which is unlike them. So I think it’s coming up soon. I’m really hopeful!

SO just bought my ring last night from James Allen….unless he wants to lose the “30 day return policy” safety, I’m pretty sure it’ll be this month! Add me!!!! 🙂

I’m in! I’m pretty sure April isn’t the month but who knows! I just can’t wait to be married to him. I love him so much. I love this idea of waiting together!

I thought it would happen last month, but I’m optimistic April will be my month. Our anniversary is on the fifth, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed. I found two different letters from a jeweler, one that said statement enclosed, so unless he got me some other jewelry for our anniversary, it’s got to be an e-ring. Plus he hates putting things on credit so I know he wouldn’t have put an anniversary gift on credit. It has to be something far bigger than that! Good luck to all the bees waiting with me, and I can’t wait to hear everyone’s engagement stories.

Last time I posted that he was acting suspicious. Normally he’ll do stuff like that but then tell me what happened. NOT THIS TIME! I really want to know what it was. I hoped I would find out yesterday (he would think it was funny to propose on April Fool’s day) but now I will probably have to wait until the end of the month. SO EXCITING!!!

Count me in! I think it’ll happen this month!! So excited!!

Maybe this month… But I have no clue at this point. All I know is before May 27, so here’s to continuing to blindly wait!

Is anyone else trying to keep their nails perfect so that they are ready to slide that ring on? I work on the farm with my SO and so it’s tough keeping them perfect but I try!

oh I’ve totally been trying, just in case… So naturally I managed to break three of mine (which weren’t even very long!) off recently. I assume that means it will inevitably happen while they still look funky, sigh.

I do! I used to go get them done professionally during the holiday season. But it got expensive so I’ve been doing it at home. 😛

- Wedding: November 2018 - City Hall
I’m in! It might probably be early May, but honestly I have no clue what’s in his head!
We agreed to be engaged before moving in together, with my parents. They live in another state and that’s where I want to relocate after my graduation (this May, yay!), and my parents invited him to come along. So he’ll be relocating with us. We spoke about the engagement before that day, and he took me to get my finger measured on January and on February 25th we bought a ring together (I eased his stress by saying I didn’t mind picking it, that boy has no knowledge of fashion lol). Our next anniversary is on May 8th, so it MIGHT be then, but he’s also the type of guy who “doesn’t propose on obvious days” so who knows?!

Well ladies, I had been in the any day club for a few months now. I didn’t have time to join April before getting kicked out 😀
I thought i’d pop in to spread some sparkly good luck vibes to all you lovelies.
I still can’t believe he asked! The past week or so my fiancé (eeeeee!) had been really annoying. Like bouncing off the walls, uber giddy, and making lots of taunting about getting engaged and several ring emojis.
On saturday I got to our summer home, which is where we met and where we plan to get married. In the snowy-rainy mix we unloaded the car and started putting it all away. I told him silly little stories of the week, ate a bagel, and realized I hadn’t given him a kiss yet. I bounced over to him on the couch and leaned in to give him a quick kiss which he lengthened. When I pulled back he was holding the ring. Without further adieu…. and by the way the picure doesn’t do it justice!
I have no idea why its sideways!

Can I join? I’ve been waiting since end of 2015. Gahh!! He bought the ring in January but I don’t know exactly what the ring is. I picked out three rings I LOVED and he chose of the three. I wanted it to be a surprise and him to pick it out. Poor guys so bad at keeping secrets hes nearly told me all his plans so many times lol. But i have NO clue when it’ll be or what’s going to happen and it’s driving me CRAZY. I’m pretty sure its going to be the end of April. Though hes hinted on 3 weeks or something from now and also my life long best friend is flying in beginning of May so maybe it’ll be then. Gah! Literally all I do is look on weddingbee and look at all my friends ring posts. 😛 I’m just so impatient now and ready to be engaged!!

Two weeks ago I stepped away from the ring designing process and BF took over. I have a July deadline so I think it’s safe to join the any day club! I find that now that I know the ring is coming along and I have a deadline I am actually enjoying the waiting and anticipation 🙂 It’s definitely a much nicer feeling than not knowing anything. Good luck fellow waiting ladies!
