watermelon2426 :  Not overboard at all. I did the same thing. I wanted to make sure I looked and felt good in the moment and in all photos. Go all out if it makes YOU happy! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I had no clue, and had a kind of terrible paint job on my nails. He proposed while we were in the middle of recycling, so I was sweaty, and not done up at all. So… yeah.

Id do hair and nails for the trip anyways. As for the clothes, eh. It’s not like you’re going to wear them once and throw them away! It’s your money so do what you want. Just… don’t bedazzle anything haha :p

Slightly overboard but I understand why completely it’s a very exciting time!! My bestie knew her proposal was coming when thwy were on holiday and did the same as you, she literally planned every outfit for every second, however, she said on their last night she thought she had got it wrong and wasn’t going to propose to just wore shorts and a top after their fancy meal, they went for a walk and low and behold he had planned a romantic proposal on the beach with rose petals, champagne etc etc obvs she wasn’t bothered she didn’t look how she imagined she just was over the moon he had asked!!

I was sat in my pjs eating left over chinese when my fiance first brought up marriage…then when he proposed we were sat in a traffic jam, oh the joys hahaha did it matter to me?? no way, I was over the moon still. It isn’t always about how you look or where you are (although granted it does help) but it’s the notion that you are being asked to be his wife and spend eternity together ๐Ÿ™‚ 

I hope the proposal is everything you want and more

I was having a really bad anxiety day and had been in bed all day. Didn’t shower or even brush my teeth and my nails were definitely not done. Hair looked like something birds were nesting in. And it was still perfect. Do as much as you want if it helps you get rid of jitters. But you could do none of it and you’ll still have a wonderful proposal.

I would have done most of that if I had known when it was going to be. You’re good.

I am not sure if I ever looked worse than I did the day he proposed. Seriously, not a humble brag๐Ÿ˜‚.  It it was still the best. 

 I’d totally have a blast preparing if I knew it was coming and had been waiting a long time as you have! Live it up!
