    The day after it arrived! But he’s the worst at keeping surprises a secret. I think most men want it to be special and that can take a little extra time. Congrats- it’s coming!! 🙂

    I know he’s had it for three weeks. But he doesn’t know that I know. No idea when the proposal is coming.

    I think he’d bought it that week, we first saw it on the 2nd April and he proposed 3 weeks later.

    1 week! We had a 4 month set back due to issues with the local jeweller so when we decided to go with bluenile, it was quick and I knew when it was arrived.

    lulun :  He ordered it about a month before he proposed and picked it up a couple days before.

    Literally the 20 minute drive from his parents’ house (where it was delivered) to our place.

    Less than a week. But a longer wait is for sure worth it. The ring i had picked out for over a year one day randomly went on sale and so my fiance bought it sooner than he was expecting to, and then my birthday happened to be a week away. So he decided he would propose on my birthday. Everything was very sweet but it was all thrown together in less than a week and a lot of stuff went wrong, the candles he lit all burned out by the time i got outside, the camera he had recording it malfunctioned, i saw the ring box before he wanted me to, and it felt rushed and he regrets not taking more time to plan something different and to make sure all those little things didn’t happen. Its been 8 months since he proposed and he is planning to repropose lol,just so we can have that special moment we both wanted. So although waiting sucks! Im sure it will be worth it!

    My husband got the ring on a Tuesday or Wednesday and he proposed that Saturday, so only a few days.  He planned a beautiful engagement party within those couple of days and it (and the proposal) was amazing!  It took 8 weeks for my ring to come in so I had no idea when he had ordered it or when he was going to propose.

    lulun :  I think around 3 months? But we were LDR so not sure if that was a huge factor. We got engaged in April but before that, we saw each other last the previous November.

    About a month. And then only because my dad was going to be living in another city for an undetermined amount of time, he wanted to propose before my Dad left town.

    lulun :  he proposed the same day he picked it up, the second I got home from work because he was too excited to wait. I didn’t even know he had gone ring shopping so it was a surprise. I knew he was going to propose eventually but we didn’t do ring shopping together or anything like that.
