@otto2008:  Yay! I’ve been seeing your posts for a little while now, and I get excited with the progress! Haha

The only pointer I have with the proposal is to take both of your interests into account!

Congratulation on completing your first hurdle! Woo!

@otto2008:  I can’t wait to see your proposal post!

And don’t worry, I nearly killed my FI when I found out how much he spent on my ring but I’m over it now. He just wanted to get me exactly what he knew I’d love and thought going over budget was well worth it.

@otto2008:  nice! It’s good to hear what the males think and how they plan out the whole proposal. I know my husband said he was very nervous and nothing seemed perfect so then he just did it but it wasnt romantic. at all. LOL

Do it when she leasts expects lt, like you are thinking, a couple of days before her birthday or something like that.  She will be curious and wondering ON a day of meaning so if you do it before you surprise and keep her from being disappointed the day AFTER a day of meaning.  Other than that, I think a lot of young men feel pressure to find “the right moment” and do something that has never been done before.  In the end that moment is special to the two of you and anything will be perfect.  

My poor nephew agonized almost a year after getting a ring over planning the right proposal.  I’m sure she would have rather just gone on with it and not have him incur so much stress.  In the end he did something very special and simple and very perfect for the two of them.

 She later said that year put a lot of stress on her as well.  She knew he had the ring so every time they went out, especially to something different than their norm, she made sure her nails were done, dressed nice, and hair perfect…….and then nothing would happen.  She really began to wonder if it would ever happen and if he had cold feet.  Now they are very happily planning their wedding. 🙂

You have made a lovely choice for her ring.  I have enjoyed following your posts on the board and can’t wait to see the pics of the ring and your special day together!
