Just for fun… did anyone get proposed to with something other than a ring?
My SO was recently surprised (a) to find out how much some Americans spend on rings, and (b) how much a golden retriever puppy would cost. (Two unrelated conversations we had back-to-back). I joked, I’d rather have a dog than a ring…you can get me an engagement puppy!
Anywho… this got me wondering and I’m just curious whether any bees got something quirky in place of an engagement ring? Not looking for advice, just some fun stories 🙂

- Wedding: March 2017 - Outside in Paris
I had a bracelet. But it was because we eloped in secret and I couldn’t wear my ring until after.

runnergal : My FI and I built a house together last year. We moved in January 2017 While there’s no question we’re getting married, he still techinically hasn’t “proposed” We put off getting engaged because we were saving all the $$ for the down payment. FI likes to spread his arms out and say,
“I got you an engagement house!”
I have assured him that since I am also paying the mortgage, it’s a nice try, but no.
That being said, I am getting HIM an egnagament guitar!

I would’ve loved an engagement horse, haha.
A couple who I’m friends with, the lady got a ring and then she got her FI an engagement drone!

teamroro : bahaha, your description of your SO spreading his arms and declaring the house an engagement house cracked me up. My SO would totally do something similar 🙂
