We got a bargain on a cushion cut solitaire from eBay and are having it set into a Verragio Parisian ring.  Since I picked everything out, I want some aspect to be a surprise but I know she won’t be able to hold onto it for too long after she picks it up.  We’re terrible at hiding things from each other lol. The ring will definitely be done by Christmas ๐Ÿ™‚

I think mine is in the next few weeks. I saw mention of an engagement party for ua as the subject of one of his emails. I don’t know what day but I’m guessing it’s soon.

He doesn’t have the setting yet because it is being madr. It should be in sometime next week and then he has to get it set. It won’t be the weekend of the 6th because we have plans where it’s not the right setting for a proposal. Maybe the weekend of the 13th or 20th?

  • Wedding: December 2016

I’m 85% sure its happening during the holidays in December. In October he told me to maybe expect it to happen in 3 months, to me that means not october or novemeber so December. He really wants family around despite my hesitation towards that so I am assuming sometime during Christmas time or New Years. I also know he has the ring so I hope he dosent hold onto it forever and just does it already lol!!!!!

And also I try to keep a lid on it around him because I don’t want to spoil it but honestly he brings it up more than I do, which I think is a good sign.

MrsSpringer62:  Jeez, your mom sounds, well, not so nice. I’m sorry she doesn’t seem to be very supportive. I hope you have friends or other family members who will be happy to go wedding dress shopping with you, excited for your engagement, etc.

He paid for the ring today and everything should be ready for pickup on Wednesday ๐Ÿ™‚ I love him and he is awful with keeping secrets (which believe me I dont mind!) Our three year anniversary is December 3 but knowing him he wouldn’t propose on a day that I would expect perhaps sometime in December.

Diamond84:  I hope so, too. Shes is a very harsh person. We are complete opposites, and my younger sister and her are the same way.  Heck, when I got my acceptance letter for University (First one ever in my family to go to college) all she said was “How are you going to pay for it?”…since then I have tried to avoid emotional let down.  I’m an introvert, so it just makes it harder for me to have connections with people. I have friends, but I don’t plan on having a bridal party since it stresses me out. I’m hoping my Grandma will want to go since she is also my Godmother. I’d like to just not bring my Mom and sister but I’ll hear it for the rest of my life. Thank you for reading btw. I just needed to get it off of my chest these feelings, I’m sure it’ll just keep getting worse though after the proposal! ๐Ÿ™‚

lalanono:  thank you!! The only reason I am suspecting in the next week is because we live far from both of our families, and we are visiting his fam for TG and my fam for Christmas. So logically I would think he would want to celebrate the engagement with our families when we see them. We shall see!!

MrsSpringer62:  Dress shopping is a very personal, private, and special moment. If your mom and sister are not going to be emotionally supportive, I would really consider whether you should bring them or not. Or at least have other people there with you who will be supportive and not be afraid to knock down their criticism.

Diamond84:  In a perfect world I’d like to go alone, or with my Fiance but he’s traditional. I think I will go alone till I find the dress then maybe bring them back. Maybe not, geeze I don’t know. If I bring people it’ll be my mom, sister, grandmas x 2, Mother-In-Law, and my best friend. At least I’d know 4 would be supportive.

I am pretty sure it is going to happen next week right before Thanksgiving. We are going on a two night trip leaving Tuesday night and coming back Thursday for Thanksgiving dinner with both of our families having a joint dinner this year!! I know he has bought the ring already because I saw the texts between him and his aunt that owns a jewelry store, and I also know the ring is hidden safely at his parents house. I can’t wait for Tuesday!!! It’s been so hard not to say anything but after five and a half years of being together I am about to explode with excitement.
