About a year.  We had talked about getting married and he bought me a ring.  We decided to wait a while longer, because we weren’t entirely ready.  The second time he gave it to me, we were definitely ready.

It took him ten days to ask me to marry him from the time he had the ring.

My Fiance initially planned to propose the day he got the ring!  But it was a Thursday night and he wanted to take me to where we met.  Well, I had a long day at work and didn’t want to go out so I messed that up, lol.  He proposed the following week on a Saturday and it was perfect and romantic.  I think anything longer than a month or two is too long… Does your Fiance have a good reason for waiting 10 months??  If I were in Fiance shoes, I’d be dying to propose to my future fiancee asap! 🙂

From my understanding, FI’s grandfather told Fiance that his great grandmother’s ring was available for him whenever he was ready to propose.  This was Thanksgiving 2010.  He proposed a month later on Christmas Eve.  He told me afterwards that he wasn’t sure when he was going to propose so it was a last minute decision on his part.  =)

We looked in December but he didn’t get a ring until April. It came but the setting was wrong so he had to send it back. Once the final ring came, he proposed about 3 weeks later. He tried to get me to go to the place he wanted to propose for a while but I kept being busy, so that was the first opportunity he had!

He picked it up after work, probably around 6pm, then he proposed at around 3am the next day. So, less than 12 hours. He said he just couldn’t wait.

I asked Fiance and he told me he bought the first ringing September, but returned it for one he liked better in October. He ended up proposing on Christmas day. He said that he was going to propose at an earlier event,but it wasn’t the right moment.

Less than 6 hours.  He ordered online, paid extra to overnight it so he could propose the day I was sworn into the bar.  Then massive snow all over the country happened, and the ring got here 2 days late.  He proposed that night at the end of our date night.

A couple of hours. I think he ordered it about a month before, and then when it was ready, he picked it up and came and propsed!
