I basically just wanted to introduce myself. I have been going through many of the boards and posts and drooling over all of your (GORGEOUS) engagement rings for a few weeks and just finally decided to join. My boyfriend is set to pick up my engagement ring on Friday. We kind of went the non-traditional route I went with him to pick it out, purchase it, and have it sized, but once he gets it I will not know when or how he will propose. I am just so ANXIOUS! Any advice to keep me sane and patient so that i won’t ruin the big moment? Anyone in a similar situation? Thanks ladies!

Welcome and good luck! The best advice I have is to just keep yourself busy and try not to think about it. You should check out Mr. Bee’s Three Step Plan for Getting Engaged, it’s great!

Love the Pre-ancee word!! 😉
As missASB said, keep busy! Time will fly and you’ll be engaged before you know it.

Welcome to the Bee! It’s the best.
I can somewhat relate to the word “pre-ance”. Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have already set a date and started planning, but he still wants to officially propose. He just started a new job so maybe it will happen soon! 🙂

welcome to the hive and good luck waiting for the ring! i accompanied the mister on one shopping trip [he had been a few times before on his own] to try on rings. i won’t be with him when he ultimately buys it so i’m in the dark as of now to the progress. which is probably for the better because i do not do surprises well when i know they’re coming.

I 2nd…love the word pre-ance!
We went the same route as you (picked out the ring together) and I knew roughly when he would propose (we were ldr and I was visiting for a month). He was sooo mean! He kept taking me on romantic dates and giving long “I love you because speeches”. Totally worth it in the end!

Thanks for the encouraging words! “Preancee” is what my bf and I call each other though I am ready to drop the “pre” asap! @MissASB thanks for that 3-step plan! Its funny and might just work! @emilymucnikoff I think thasts the worst part I will KNOW he has the rings on friday so anytime we do something I will be thinking “is today the day?” But like u said I know it will be worth it! @Potatoes we have started planning and have a tentative date in mind, just waiting for it to be official, soon I hope…
