He ordered the ring, it took 3-4 weeks to come in and he proposed the night it was delivered. He later told me he was panicking all day since he had already planned everything out for that day and was scared it wouldn’t be delivered that day.

We’d gone away for the weekend when DH said we could buy a ring and I said if we went into jewellers we were engaged – even if we left without a ring. So we found a ring and purchased it and considered ourselves engaged from that point. The shop needed to resize my ring so we didn’t leave with it. Later than evening DH got one knee with a sweet to “propose” (this is after we’d already told our parents). So a couple of hours from buying the ring to “proposing” and then -9 days from proposing until I got my ring back.

5 months, and it was awful because I knew he had it almost the entire time (my mother let it slip). Since you already know he has it, you probably don’t have very long to wait!

My ring took a month to make.  He picked it up as soon as he could, and proposed about 3 hours later.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Fiance had the ring for 2 and a half weeks. He been thinking about buying it beforehand, though. I didn’t know anything about it or I literally would not have been able to contain myself!!!!!

coraldee :  My Fiance bought the ring in April 2015. Finished payments by October 2015. Planned to propose on vacation in November 2015 but it got cancelled. Ended up Proposing in January 2016 on our re-scheduled vacation.

He picked it up on a Tuesday, and proposed on Sunday! He didn’t want to hold onto it for too long. He wanted to propose on the Friday or Saturday, but I ended up ruining his plans and he had to wait another day!

Fiance waited about 5 months to propose – he did try a few times before but kept getting interrupted/things went wrong, ha ha.

DH had the ring 11 months before proposing. 11 MONTHS. I bothered him about proposing in general, but didn’t know he actually had it, so it wasn’t eating away at me as badly as if I had known.

Ordered the ring on a Friday. Asked my dad (and my mom!) on Saturday. Waited 13 days for it to be made, picked it up on a Thursday night.  About 3 hours later he asked ๐Ÿ™‚

coraldee :  Ahhh so exciting! My Fiance asked my dad about a month before he bought the ring. I think once he actually picked up the ring he did it within a week!

coraldee :  2 days. He was going to propose that day, but I had a terrible day at work, plus it was pouring rain outside, so he waited until the weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚
