I say good for them!  If they have the ring, why wait?  I guess I was never one for big surprises. I still like that scene from SATC where Charlotte and Trey are walking in NYC and stop in front of Tiffany’s and he says let’s go in and pick out a ring and she gets all giddy and excited. That’s me!  LOL.

SingingAlto :  It explains a lot, lol.   I think my 17 year old self would have thought it tacky too.  However fairy tale proposals can just be fairy tales.   She will change her mind once she gets older.

SingingAlto :   hyacinthandlavender :  yeah 17 year old me would have wanted the fairytale of the big fancy proposal. I’m just much more pragmatic about what that proposal means now and how big a part it plays in our future.

SingingAlto :  My cousin was proposed to at a jewelry store. She had no clue it was going to happen. Her Fiance took her out for breakfast and then brought her to the jewelry store to “pick up a watch that he had brought in previously to be fixed”. The jeweler was in on the proposal and acted like they were picking up the watch. Instead, the jeweler placed the ring box in front of her and told her to open it. She did, and saw the diamond ring inside; that’s when her Fiance asked her to marry him. She was completely blown away and happy!

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it, but if it were me, I’d appreciate if there were something planned afterwards or in conjunction that was for me – for example a nice lunch/dinner or a walk in a romantic area – doesn’t have to be elaborte, but something to solidify that it’s a romantic transaction as well as a financial one. Proposing, then whipping out your credit card, then just heading home doesn’t sit right with me.

 

edit: I just remembered, my now Fiance when we first started talking about marriage told me to go jewelry shopping by myself and let him know what I liked, so I went with a girlfriend, and the woman at the store told us proposals happen like every day and they have a whole set up for it with bells and music. They’re like on deck for proposals!

Makes me think of sweet home alabama where he proposes in the jewelry store and she gets to pick her ring. It’s not for me, but if that’s something that works for them, so be it.

I love this ๐Ÿ™‚ its so adorable that he couldn’t wait one more minute to give her the ring. Much better than him holding onto it for months and months, dangling the idea of planning some “dream proposal” over her head!

There are significantly worse times to ask.

My husband’s friend married a girl after knowing each other for 3 days. He proposed in the jewelry store because he claims he got half off the ring. He also said the ring my husband bought me is a fake diamond because “it creates rainbows in the light”. Okkkkkk…..

His other friend from high school took his gf to Walmart to pick out a ring and proposed in the parking lot and they rode off on his motorcycle. Not exactly my fairytale but hey it works for them.

Not my style because I would kill my partner for doing something so public. I also hate surprises so he wasn’t allowed to propose to me at all. 

But good on them. Whatever works for them and makes them happy.’ I’ve never understood some people’s need of judging how someone else got engaged or married.
