It will still be magical.

It might not be a popular opinion, but I do not think you should ever tell your SO you found out before he proposed. I knew for hours before my Fiance proposed because he was a nervous wreck, but he loved the thought of surprising me, so I still maintain that I didn’t know lol.

Be happy with whatever he is planning, and don’t hint that what he’s planning isn’t your “ideal.” It’s not all about you, this is his moment too. And please don’t look at his phone any more unless you want the surprise to be ruined.

No. Don’t hint at anything. It’s his proposal too. This is why it’s not cool to read your other half’s messages. The messages were not intended for you or for you to see. Therefore, that’s snooping. No biggy, but perhaps don’t do it again.

I agree with mrstbone: I knew Darling Husband was going to propose a few minutes before he did it. I saw the ring box in his pocket. That didn’t take away ANY of the magic of the moment and our story is still the cutest proposal story ever (of course I’m ridiculously biased). I would never let that slip to him because he’s so proud of the proposal and it wouldn’t change anything. 

Also, please DO NOT tell him that you’d rather be proposed to in the city you’re visiting. Won’t it be just as romantic to celebrate your love and your engagement on the whole trip? Let him do it the way he always imagined.

In short, nothing will be ruined, but keep your proposal preferences to yourself. Forever.

Eeek! That’s so exciting!
The surprise is definitely *not* ruined, don’t worry 😀 I’m sure there are many details he’s planned that you don’t know about.
I think your trip will be magical regardless of the engagement, but honestly, I think it would be awesome to go to a city you’ve dreamed about as an engaged couple.
It’s his proposal, though. I’ve seen it happen many times on this board- when a girl starts trying to meddle in the proposal, the guy tends to get upset. This is your man’s time to shine, and it will be amazing!

It won’t ruin the moment! My husband doesn’t know that I had a pretty good idea he was going to propose on the day he actually did, and I’d never tell him because he did such a wonderful job. My knowing didnt take away from the special moment.
