Yes! My Darling Husband proposed on the last day of our vacation in NYC. I did not think he was going to propose at all before the trip. He had told my mom before that he was going to and she even asked me, knowing this, if I thought he was going to propose and I said no. I started wondering though and over the course of the trip there were plenty of opportunities, but nothing so I just figured I was right. Well, on the last day we did Rockefeller center. We had been there before so I was looking forward to seeing it, but it wasn’t a huge deal to go there. I even offered to skip it because he seemed tired, he was quiet. He insisted and he proposed at the top. He told me later that he wanted to propose there and it was just chance that we went on the last day. If we had gone on the first day, he would have done it then! Don’t let the waiting spoil the trip and you still have three days!

My Fiance had the ring with him on vacation and didn’t do it at all. He said later that it didn’t feel right and felt it was something he’d rather do at home. 

Just enjoy the time away. Don’t let this stress you out (though I know it’s easier said than done!)

My Fiance didn’t just wait until the last day – he waited until the whole vacation was over! I had a very strong feeling he was proposing soon and thought our vacation was going to be it, but it turns out he wanted to wait until we were in a place that had meaning to us rather than doing it somewhere new.

I understand the stress, but you know it’s coming, so just relax and enjoy! Focus on all the wonderful memories you’re making with the person you’re going to spend the rest of your life with.

Mine did! It was more kea staycation for me, and a vacation for him. He visited me on leave, and I was beginning to give up on a proposal when he poppedthe question on the last day of his vacation.

Mine proposed on our last day in Hawaii. I knew he had the stand in ring (my ring wasn’t finished in time for our trip). On our second day we went shark cage diving and then did a helicopter tour and I thought he might have done it that night because it was one of the best days ever, but he didn’t. Then the next morning I could’ve sworn I saw it in his pocket when we went on a sunrise hike and I kept telling myself to act normal and just enjoy it, but it never happened and when we got back to the room I checked the drawer and he didn’t even have the ring with him….a couple more days passed until finally on the morning of our last day, it happened on one of our hikes! He said he had been waiting to do it there because it was the only hike we did our first time in Hawaii and my parents have a lot of pics of the area from their honeymoon so it was special. He said he wanted to do it earlier but I kept pushing that hike back until our last day there!

It was definitely worth the wait! Just take in every moment and try not to focus on it, just enjoy vacation.

mrsluna:  I was disappointed and I was honest with him. I’m so bad at hiding my emotions, it just makes it awkward for everyone if I try to hide it. 

He asked me at the airport if I was ok and I just told him that I thought he’d propose while we were away and I’m just a bit sad that it didn’t happen. He told me that he had the ring with him and had planned to do it while we were away, but it didn’t feel right doing it away from home. I accepted that and we moved on. 

I was still a little bummed after but thankfully he only kept me waiting for another 2 weeks. Looking back, I’m glad he didn’t do it if it didn’t feel right for him. It’s as much about him as it was about me, so how can I argue with that πŸ™‚ 

Please try to enjoy your time away, but I do know it’s tough.

Hehe yes he sure did. He waited until almost midnight on our last night of vacation and proposed under the stars. I couldn’t sleep after though because I was so excited πŸ˜‰ It was definitely worth the wait!

Our vacation in which I am almost positive he is going to propose on is in two weeks! However, ours is only for the weekend so even if it’s the last day, it won’t be bad. I hope you get your proposal before the end of your trip! Be sure to update us!! πŸ™‚

mrsluna:  Not really.  I wouldn’t want someone to propose until they were ready and it felt right.  We got engaged on my college campus, which is where our relationship all started, and it was perfect for us.

omg I thought i was the only one! Waited till the very last day of a two week trip! By then I was not expecting it AT ALL. He later told me he had been waiting for the “perfect moment” and it just never happened until the last day.

Yep mine. At the end of a five week holiday!! As a PP said, we want them to feel excited and comfortable to propose so I like that they take care to find a time that feels special. Try to enjoy your holiday, it’s so likely it’s gonna happen. Look forward to an update letting us know! πŸ™‚

I had a feeling he was going to propose on the trip, but I was prepared if my intuition was wrong. I actually thought he might propose at the end of our trip, but he actually proposed on the first day! Being pleasantly surprised is a nice feeling. The proposal will happen when it happens!
