- Wedding: May 2011
Bought it on January 3rd- proposed on January 18th. LONGEST 15 days of MY LIFE!!! Didn’t help that I had wanted him to propose for almost two years before that!
1 month from the time he bought it and 12 hours from the time he got it in his hands..
we went looking a month ago now and so far the wait has been horrible(feels like a year ) and i know i will have to wait longer because he said he wants to do it around the end of the year but i wont know when , my birthday is in october his is in december the anniversary of our first date is in november also christmas this year with his family..i am going crazy, we are also moving in together september.i am hoping its then, even had dreams about the different ways it can happen, lol so far i like my dream where he gives it to me when we are sitting together in our new place on the floor surrounded by boxes..cheesy i know
Looked at rings about 2 years before I knew he’d bought it. Then it was about 8 months till the proposal. It was tough, but everything turned out perfect!
I didn’t know he was looking at rings!
He designed it in May, had it in-hand by June And proposed with it at the end of July. He said the anticipation was killing him, and that he used to come home from work (when I wasn’t there) take it out and put it on the tip of his pinkie, just to imagine it on my finger. Adorable.
I had suspected he had bought it in July and he purposed in Aug so a month and yes after he did it he told me he bought it in July.
We bought them online together and I didn’t let him know they’d arrived in the mail. I waited until he was taking a nap, then slipped it on his hand while he was asleep. I’ll never forget how happy and surprised he looked when he woke up!
However, we had to let them go again so they could be engraved, and I left him in charge of picking them up and surprising me that time. He came over, we sat and talked for a while, then he shot out of his chair and ran over to his bag with his arms flailing. He meant to surprise me at the door and had completely forgotten!
2 weeks. 🙂
He’s had the ring in his possession at least 3 – 4 weeks and it finally came into mine tonight!!! YAY! Knowing he had it made me so anxious because being officially each other’s was so close yet not. Now it’s official.
God I hope it isn’t that long. He got the ring on Tuesday morning and I am dying. The jeweler was out of state and mailed the ring to him when it was ready and while I was supposed to be out of town when the ring arrived I was sick for 4 days and so I couldn’t travel and ended up having to sign for the delivery so I knew it was here but didn’t see it. Today is day 4 and I am hoping tomorrow evening will be it – but it is unlikely – I told him I was going to be working labor day unfortunatly and I would be late (home after 10pm) every day for the next two weeks starting Sunday. When I mentioned Labor Day he got this upset look for a quick second but bounced into his I don’t care attitude quickly – so I think that was his plan. He is obsessed about when we can go to an amusement park and I am praying that won’t be why.
I knew that he had chosen one and was paying for it. I thought that he was still paying when he popped the question. It was a total surprise!
He purchased my e-ring in October of 2008 and didn’t propose until the middle of January 2009-he skipped right thru the holiday season and waiting until our 1 year anniversary to propose. 🙂
