Wow that’s pretty shitty of the jewelry store, why did they even have your email if you didn’t place the order? 

On the bright side at least you know it’s soon! So exciting.

Aww! Delete the email bee. The surprise element is important to your future fiance and you should let him have it. You’ve done well emailing the jeweler and I’m sure you’ve looked enough to get a few details. That’s all you need for now!

Delete the email. You will feel worse if you completely ruin the surprise.

I agree! Delete it fully. I couldn’t stand it myself and I’d eventually look. Just get rid of it so you don’t have the temptation. They will send that same email to him you said. So you’ll have access to the specs later 🙂

You could start obsessing about dresses! lol Maybe start a pinterest board for color ideas, centerpieces, bouquets, bridesmaids dresses? Casually look around online for venues you might be interested in? Early congrats!

Haha!! I know exactly how you feel!! I just got engaged two months ago. I kept myself busy thinking about nail colors and engagement pic ideas and photographers.

Forward it to your friend, then delete it completely from your archive and sent folder. Let her look at it and NOT GIVE YOU DETAILS but let her reassure you that it’s amazing (because we all know it will be!) Just make sure she’s trustworthy enough to not spill the beans. Not even one spec more than you already know needs to be revealed! This way you feel better but the surprise still isn’t ruined. 

In the meantime there are a billion things to occupy your thoughts. Pinterest is a great distraction! Lol

Delete the email and never breathe a word to your partner. My partner and I are plannig on getting engaged on our summer vacation in about 2 weeks and I accidentally saw an email on his laptop from the jeweler. I got as far as reading “Have you looked at…” and closed out the window. I thought it would be hard to stay away from snooping around but it hasn’t been.

Now that we’re getting close, and honestly all our friends and family know, I’ve started talking to him about stuff like who might be in our party or what type of venue we like. We’ve got some “wouldn’t it be nice if…” plans but nothing firm decided. Now with just a few weeks left I’m obsessing over nails and what I’m gonna do with mine for our trip. 

I definitely want to know everything about the ring later on, but for the first few months (until asking has died down) I don’t want to know anything about size/price/anything. Hold on girl, you can do it!!
