No, you don’t have to have or wear a ring to be engaged. All you need is to agree to be married. Who cares what other people think?

We are eloping so I don’t have a ring. I will get my ring as a wedding gift. You do you. The ring is only a symbol the promise is the important thing. But if you do want one being engaged before isn’t a reason not to have a ring again.

You do you!

if people ask, ‘can I see the ring?’ Just say you decided to not get one/put the money towards X/ don’t like rings/ are just getting a plain band for the wedding etc. 

Anyone who sneers at your lack of ring doesn’t need to be in your life!

Of course you can be engaged without a ring, just as you can be married without one.

How you “announce” it may help forestall ring related questions. “We’ve decided to get married” vs “he asked me to marry him”. If people ask about the ring anyway, tell them you’ll be exchanging rings at the wedding. ๐Ÿ™‚

I got engaged without a ring. Some people thought it was weird but it was fine for us. A ring didn’t factor into whether or not we were going to be getting married. I got my wedding band, and may at some point get an engagement type ring, but it’s not at all essential.

You two do whatever you want to do.

Not everyone wants a ring when they get engaged.  A good friend of mine got engaged without a ring and they could certainly afford one, but she didn’t want one as they wanted to save money for other things.  Sure, people will look at your hand and wonder where the ring is, but it’s really none of their business. If you’re happy and you’re looking forward to spending your life with this person, that’s all that matters. Congrats!!  ๐Ÿ™‚

summerrain123 :  Congrats on your engagement ๐Ÿ™‚ And you don’t need a ring- i would just say what you planned on saying, that you’re choosing rings for the wedding. Definitely ‘do you’ and enjoy this special time ๐Ÿ™‚
