ANY UPDATES, BEE????
ANY UPDATES, BEE????
We went for dinner on Friday night at a hotel and he kept saying that his parents want to stay at this hotel the next time they’re in London so asked him to check out a room. After dinner we went up to reception and he asked the staff (who were all playing along…) if any rooms are available to look at, and they said one of the suites is free so we went up.
I opened the door to see the whole room decorated with candles, flowers and photos and he proposed there! As if that wasn’t enough, he was worried that I wouldn’t be sufficiently surprised as I knew the proposal was coming very soon (hence this thread lol) and so he also booked a surprise weekend trip to Paris!!! We went on Saturday morning to celebrate our engagement for an entire weekend. Was amazing and I couldn’t be happier.
Here’s the ring!
Thank you bees! Happy to have had this forum to carry me through the waiting period haha
Yay! Congrats Bee 🙂
You can do whatever you feel like doing. If you’re excited about it, be excited. He is going to be nervous as hell too. You may know when it’s going to happen but you will not know how you react to it until it actually does.
My fiance wanted to do it at the park we grew up with both our parents. What happened was, he picked up the ring on a Friday and we went on a date that night and when he hugged me I felt the ring box in his pocket. The next day, he left his pants hung on the door with the ring box still in his pocket when he went to work! I pulled it out but did not open the box because i wanted the ring to be a surprise, which I later found out he had taken the ring out and put a penny in to see if I would open it! (which I hadn’t anyway) but he’s a prankster like that. Anyway, like I forementioned, he had been planning on doing it a few weeks later at the park we grew up with but the following Monday on my way back from work, I went to the grocery store and he was texting me a little more than usual. By the third “you almost home?” I was a tad suspicious, but we text non-stop all day anyway so I didn’t really put TOO much thought into it. When I got home and opened our apartment, there were roses all over the living room, on the floor, the couch, everywhere. There was romantic music playing and he came up to me wearing a suit. I immediately started crying and snotting and just being really gross. He gave me a beautiful speech before proposing, about how I was his best friend in the world and have always been there for him etc etc. He even had a hidden camera to record the moment, which thank goodness he did because I swear I blacked out for a bit. When I asked him when he decided to do it like this, he told me he had this entirely different plan at the park but once he picked up the ring he just couldn’t wait any longer.
My point is, I knew it was coming, I had even found the ring, but nothing NOTHING prepares you for the actual moment. The fact that it was just us in our apartment was perfect, it was super intimate. However he does it, it will be perfect for you. I recommend getting a video of it if possible because everytime you rewatch it, you will be filled with emotions like you were on that day
It really is special!
Congrats on your soon to be engagement!
Ah! I hadn’t seen the last posts! Congrats! Beautiful ring and story!
