I’m sure that it would be fine to take a long engagement and recuperate some of your finances!

I’m the same way, DaisyCakes!  My bf has been talking about taking a trip to Paris next spring, which happens to be roughly the timeframe when we plan to get engaged.  I keep saying that, although it sounds great, I feel like we should be saving up for larger expenses (ahem, ahem).  He keeps pushing, though, and it’s clear that this trip (whether or not it leads to engagement!) means a lot to him.  In the end, I know that the money will work out, and if he wants to plan an elaborate engagement, then so be it!  After all, the wedding will be mostly planned by me, but the engagement is his opportunity to surprise and treat me.

If I were you, I would go back to him and say “I just didn’t want you to feel pressured to do anything too extravagant, but as long as you feel comfortable with the amount we’re spending, I’m happy to sit back and let you plan the trip for us.”  And then enjoy the ride!! 🙂
