@ColoradoGirl:  what worked for me during the waiting (which was abut 8 months) was open discussions and explanations that big life decisions should not be approached as if they are a surprise birthday party. I am a little bit anxious and a naturally shy person so I really wanted him to understand why the whole thing made me so nervous.

Welcome to Weddingbee! you will find so much support during your waiting time, through planning and even after marriage on the newlywed boards! This is a great place to vent with those waiting moments become just so anxious!

I’m one of 5 kids too! and my husband is one of 13. We got engaged a month before his sisters wedding and married 6 months after. I actually felt really bad when we were at her wedding and people kept asking about when we were getting married i kinda just shrugged and let them know we were waiting until after her day to figure it out.  I really loved that i had his sister to go to though, she had the guest list for me already (huge plus!) and she totally understood that people who werent getting married could really care less about wedding details and it was all i cared to talk about for several months. Its nice to have someone who had gone through it too.

Good luck on waiting for your ring! enjoy the summer knowing something great is waiting at the end!

I’m in the same boat. My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have been together about 8 months and he and i have talked openly about getting married for a while. Recently he has said to his room mate, co workers, strangers at an interview, and my parents that he was going to propose…he then told me.

I’m almost getting frustrated becasue he has the idea to propose, has told people he is going to and then tells me. I’m nervous, anxious, and slightly annoyed because now i just want the ring on my hand. Almost in a <sigh>” Just propose already.” mentality.

Bees, how do i combat this? I know his proposal is going to special but the surprise has gone out of it.
