    My husband asked my parents for their blessing to propose, so they knew it was happening sometime but when/where/how were not shared as far as I know.  His parents actually knew nothing at all.

    Mine knew that we were seriously talking about getting engaged in the near future, but not exactly when it would be. His didn’t know at all.

    My fiance asked my dad’s “permission” first, so he knew. Then he told my mom and sister because they were invited to the surprise birthday party for me where he proposed.

    He also told his mom but she freaked out (in a bad way), but that’s a whole other story…..

    We’ll keep this post positive lol

    My parents knew a proposal was coming within the next year because they helped my fi get a ring my grandmother had saved. His mother knew we were a long term deal, and that we both were talking about getting married one day, openly. Neither knew the specific plans, when it was going to happen, or how.

    My fiance went to my parents for their blessing a week before he proposed, then he waited and told his mother a couple days before.
