We’ve been dating 3 years… talking about rings/weddings for the last 9 months.
We’ve done a little shopping online and by ourselves at the stores. And then we went to Hawaii.
We were watching the sunrise and he says "this would be the perfect place to propose!" I said "then just do it!"
Needless to say he wanted to wait till after my brother’s wedding (the following weekend).
But while we were in Hawaii we went shopping and found the ring that we both fell in love with! I’m pretty sure he went back and bought it while I was relaxing by the pool.
Now I can’t stand it. He’s told me it will happen soon. But knowing the ring is somewhere hidden in the house is sooo hard!

Just be patient!!!
IT will be wonderful and great so awesome when you are proposed to. There are really no words for it and you will ruin whatever he is planning for you.

I know it’s hard, but don’t rush it and don’t obsess. You want to be able to savor every moment of it and you don’t want to ruin whatever he’s got planned. Have fun…go buy the new Martha and read it when he’s not around. 🙂

oooh it’s so exciting that your proposal is on the horizon! Try not to obsess- it will happen and you want for it to take you by suprise!! Don’t try to think about WHEN it willl happen- just know that it WILL!!!

Welcome to weddingbee!
Vent on this thread or to your friends and act like you’ve forgotten about it to him. Every time you bring it up to him it will be a little longer until he does it because the further he thinks it is from the front of your mind the more he will think it is a suprise for you and that is what he wants. So keep the lips zipped as much as possible! I know it seems hard but focus your energies elsewhere or try your best to and it will be here before you know it. 🙂

…and btw – it must be really cool to have the proposal as a surprise. i totally new the day mine was coming. it was still wonderful – but a surprise would have been so much fun.

WE are engaged! He finally did it! He came to my family’s mother’s day celebration and gave my mom the sweetest card! He said "With your permission can I be you son-in-law!" My mom was so excited and said "I got the best Mother’s day present Ever!"
Next thing I know he is on one knee! I can’t tell you what he said because it was a blurr! 🙂
