I knew exactly when and how it was happening.  It was my parents who thought I was clueless so lead me into my ‘surprise’. 

And it was lovely and emotional,  although I knew the moment still was perfect. 

Tbh if i hadn’t known I would have freaked as I do not handle surprises very well.  So knowing made it very exciting and full of anticipation.  Plus it was reassuring for him as he knew I was gonna say yes πŸ™‚ 

Congrats bee and enjoy it πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

I found out 2 weeks before, I knew what day it would be but I didn’t know how he would do it. It was still wonderful and I cried and it was still one of the best days of my life. Don’t worry, even though you know it’s coming, it will still be perfect πŸ™‚ Enjoy, and an early congrats!

I knew he had the ring, had even seen it as I had picked it out, knew he had asked my parents, and was still surprised! I knew it would have been happening soon, just didn’t know when. We had gone to do our usual saturday morning errands, and he came back to say that he was going to lay down for a nap (so unusual for him, but he didn’t sleep well the night before, ironically enough because he was nervous). He came out a few minutes later and the ring was tied to the dog’s collar and he kept telling the dog to come and see me. It took me a few minutes to clue in and I eventually spotted the ring. 

Everything will be amazing! Just make sure your nails are done for that day, and start counting down the days πŸ™‚ Congrats!

Totally agree with PPs — I knew when it might be generally since I knew he had bought the ring and found out part of how he was going to propose (because he had left something open on the computer). I didn’t tell him I knew anything since he wanted to keep the proposal a surprise. Anyway, I too complained on the waiting boards and was worried that things would feel less special, but I was totally, completely wrong. It was absolutely amazing. I feel so silly for worrying about it.

kcoast:  I cry pretty easily haha so I’m a bad example. But I cried extra hard that day (in a good way!) πŸ˜›

kcoast:  I found out he has the ring (accidentally heard a voicemail on his phone from the jeweler saying “your ring is ready to be picked up” and later found a receipt for a safety deposit box at the bank that same day). He has no clue that I know and I am a little bummed with myself for finding out that much.

HOWEVER, I don’t know what the ring looks like or exactly when or how he plans to propose! I have an idea it will happen sometime this month, but am in the dark about everything else.

 

I am on pins and needles!!

I picked out my ring and knew about when it was going to happen. I didn’t know exactly when or where or how, but it was still such a surprise and he was so sweet. It was amazing. Knowing didn’t ruin or spoil anything.Β

kcoast: Get it out of your head, like you don’t know. I told myself I’m only thinking like that as I want it to happen. The one good thing was that he did it after Christmas and my birthday is before Christmas and as he had got me expensive presents for both of those, thinking about it practically I thought he won’t be able to afford a ring. Our second day in NY at 8.30 am on the top of the Rockefeller Centre on a sunny morning we were engaged

I knew, and it absolutely did not diminish a single thing. It was still beautiful, because even though I knew he was proposing that day, I had no idea how nervous, happy, and excited we’d be. I don’t think I had ever felt more in love with him than in those moments.

I knew my proposal was happening….even though everyone else thinks I had no idea lol. I was still surprised in a way and I still cried. I had no idea what my ring looked like or what he would do. I loved every moment of it! You just kind of have to force yourself to quit wondering about it and try to relax and live in the moment πŸ™‚ Not great advice sorry but it was hard for me to do so it’s hard for me to give you advice!
