lol exciting ! once i knew my fiancé had the ring i kid you not i harassed him every hour on when he’s going to propose even though he did not know i knew he had it. 

he picked up the ring march 7th (our jeweler slipped up and told me it’s ready for pick up)  and he proposed march 24th- he initially wanted to propose some time in april though

So exciting! I also signed for my own ring, but I knew it was coming and we had decided not to do a surprise proposal, so I got mine that night.

He bought it at the beginning of April, I found it end of April, and he proposed on New Years.

Husband proposed two or three days after picking up the ring from the jeweler. I wasn’t waiting at all because it was a surprise.

My FH picked up the ring at his parents’ house, drove straight home, and proposed about 5 minutes later.

Depends entirely on him. He might be an anxious sort of guy who can’t keep a surprise for too long. Lol! Or he might have great self control and wait for some special day coming up (can you think of something you should be celebrating in the next few weeks/months?)

sparrow91 :  I also signed the package that had my ring in it, and my boyfriend also tried to cover it up (but wouldn’t let me see it, etc). It was just the setting, so it was two more months until the whole thing was ready and he proposed.

For my cousin, her now husband had the ring for over six months before proposing!! She had given up on him by the time he did propose lol

He got it in January, waited 2 months because he wanted to do it when we’re away from home (like on holidays somewhere), he must’ve had the idea that it would be more romantic that way 🙂 I didn’t really ask him other than once joked a ring / proposal would be nice for my birthday (that was in January and I had no idea he had already got the ring by then lol)..

I’ll say just relax and let him do his thing, he must have some idea how he wants to do it so just let him plan it out.

Not that I knew this at the time, but he picked up the ring from Fedex in the morning “gone for Starbucks” and proposed later that day! 

I think I would lose my mind waiting if I knew it was in the house…So hopefully you get it soon!!!
