I knew my now-husband was going to propose sometime during the 6-day backpacking trip we took together. We had chosen a ring together (that took 4-6 weeks for the jeweler to make and ship) just over 6 weeks before the trip, and when I jokingly said I knew he would propose on our trip, he didn’t deny it at all.

So I too was pretty jumpy before the trip — not only because we were about to hike 60+ miles together, but also because I knew we’d get engaged on the trip! 

It was a very special, personal proposal and we’re happily married now… I wouldn’t consider it “ruined” at all because I knew when it was comming.

This is an exciting time – enjoy!

I basically planned my own proposal. Lol

I picked my ring and when it came in I started suggesting all sorts of sweet/romantic activities we could do over the holidays, just for fun. I even planned a trip to Japan over Christmas when he said he didn’t think there was anywhere good to propose in Beijing. 

We went to a gingerbread cookie baking/decorating event a few days before Christmas and while we were there he was like “man, this would have been a great place to propose” (DUH) Then he proceeded to be like “damn, I really wanna just propose now…but I don’t have the ring with me. Do you think I could propose anyway?” And basically discuss it with me for five minutes before he drew a ring in icing on a gingerbread snowman and asked me. 

It was not smooth or polished at all. It was silly and a little awkward, just like us. 😀

 

tldr: I was super aware and it was still great. Don’t worry about knowing beforehand. You’ll love it. Congrats!!!

My fiance and I were taking a trip to Hawaii and the first night there, he said “I have a ring, not with me, at the hotel. I’m so anxious I had to tell you.” Haha. It was hilarious. He proposed the next day.
