I was sitting on the sofa early in the morning in my PJs, hadn’t showered or brushed my teeth and was paying bills.  Seriously, I wouldn’t worry about this.

Don’t worry about it. Too much planning will just stress you out. I, like Georgia Bee, was in PJs.

well, if your Fiance says, “lets go for a hike”, just put on hiking clothes. I really wouldn’t worry too much about this.  i don’t think the mere suggestion of doing something will alert you to the fact that he will propose.

a long time ago, i told fi not to let me look like crap when he popped the question.  Because I would be taking pictures! lol /The day that he did ask, I was getting dressed and he told me that maybe we could have a fun little date and go to dinner. He was going to wear a nice polo and I should wear something cute.  He always was thinking. lol

I think you’re overthinking things.  I was proposed to in our living room wearing my lounge wear, no makeup, hair undone.  Tongue out

Honestly, when it happens I doubt very seriously you’ll care what you’re wearing. Fiance proposed after we’d been running around in super hot and humid theme parks in Florida. I think I was wearing a pair of capris, a tank top and my uber-sexy pink Mary Jane Crocs – the pinnacle of fashion I tell you! My hair was up in a clip to keep it off my neck and any make up I might have put on earlier in the day was a distant memory at best. I think you can always do the cute engagement pictures the next day when you’re still doing the silly happy smile but have a chance to primp a bit more.

My Fiance surprised me, but he didn’t worry about what I was wearing. Like a couple of other bees, I was in my pajamas (stained, grubby, old pajamas, actually), and hadn’t even showered yet. If your bf wants you to be wearing something specific when he proposes, then I think he’s right to be worried about tipping you off. I would have definitely been suspicious if mine had said “Hey! Why don;t you wear this outfit today!” or had encouraged me to wear something nice. He typically does not suggest such things.

How do you normally know what to wear? If you know you’re going hiking, you wear hiking clothes, or if you’re doing something casual, you wear casual clothes… so the fact that he’s worrying about it seems like you’ll need to be wearing something you don’t normally wear– like you’ll need to get fancied up or something? So maybe he’s planning something like that, something you don’t normally do, so you don’t normally dress for? And he’s wondering how he can get you to dress appropriately without giving it away… but that might actually give it away… Hmmm… sounds like he’s got something up his sleeve. 

(Does that make sense to anyone but me?)

Go with the flow!!!!

Please don’t ANYONE take this the wrong way…..

Why is everyone so worried about what their hair/makeup/outfit will look like when they get proposed to?  I was too excited to care!!  Plus, I looked like a MESS from crying afterwards!!

My Fiance and I had goen out to eat w/ our parents, stopped for some wine/beer/champagne (how did I NOT see it coming?) and went back to our house.  I was stuffed from dinner and rinks so I changed into my PJs as soon as I got home.  He was like, “Why don’t you stay in your regular clothes?!?”  He changed into his sweats to make me feel better and popped the question 10mins later….PJs and all  :o)
