He waited about 6 months. He got the ring in February and proposed in July. He wanted to do it on a camping trip (perfect for us!) so he had to wait until summer and then my mom was dealing with some health issues and visisting a lot (he knew I wouldn’t want him to propose while she was there) so he didn’t really get a good oppertunity until July.

A friend of mine’s husband had the ring sitting on the dresser for a year before proposing.

He picked it up on a Thursday, planned to propose the following Saturday, but decided against it due to rain and the moment not being right and then proposed the following Saturday ๐Ÿ™‚

Mine got mine custom made. He started the process in around June of 2015 and proposed in April this year so… 8/9 months! I have no idea when the ring was actually ready though ๐Ÿ™‚

He kept it for 2-3 months. It sat in the jeweler’s safe for most of that time. It was a risk because the return policy was only 30 days. He did a great job, so it worked out beautifully.

He proposed on a Thursday the minute he got back from the jewelers. He had a plan to do it that Saturday but just couldn’t wait. We’re not very good at keeping surprises from each other

He bought it on 8/27, it was brought into the house 23 days later and I am still waiting. 

He said he wanted to wait until my friends wedding was over. That’s this weekend! Lets hope it’s soon!!!

I knew when my Fiance bought the ring and when it was in the house. ย He held onto it for 5 months before proposing.

About 20 minutes (I was in the shower for 15 of those!) – he had ordered it, and it came in the mail. He grabbed a bucket, ice, and beer, and popped the question when I came out of the bathroom haha. He couldn’t wait!

But, to be fair, he had informally (without a ring) proposed about 2 weeks prior to that, so we both knew it was happening!

coraldee :  My Fiance is typically very impulsive and can’t keep secrets. Anytime he gets a gift for someone he gives it to them immediately, even if their birthday or whatever occasion is months away. I figured he’d propose as soon as he had the ring… nope!

He had the ring for a little over 7 months before he proposed. He showed me the setting as soon as he got it (before a stone was set), so I knew the whole time. It drove me CRAZY. As far as how did I hadle not pesterng him about it – I didn’t handle it well. I pestered him more than I should have. It’s hard to not be excited about! I finally stopped talking about it about 2 months before he did it because it was making me upset everytime it was brought (he brought it up some too, not just me). 

I hope your Fiance doesn’t make you wait long. Congrats and good luck!

He waited a week! Luckily, I had no idea that my ring was finished so I was snooping around the jewelry store and making my coworkers uncomfortable rather than trying to get a peek in the safe and making Fiance uncomfortable ๐Ÿ˜‰

11 months. Of course, he’d had the ring long before he met me since it was his great grandmother’s. So he proposed 11 months after we started dating. ๐Ÿ™‚

3 months. We currently live in a town that I don’t really care for and he wanted to wait to do it someplace that I loved and would love to return to. It was perfect smile
