Same. Exact. Situation. We booked our venue, church and photographer in December/January, I didn’t get my ring until the last week in MAY! I think the funniest part of the situation was that I kept looking for excuses for him to propose. I swear that he bent over to tie his shoe one day and my heart about thumped out of my chest. He looked at my face and said “The ring isn’t tied to my shoe lace, sorry babe” and we laughed about it but I still had that “WELL WHY NOT?!” thought, as though a shoe lace were a perfectly practical place to keep my engagment ring…NOT! πŸ˜‰

The only regret I have (and it’s not really a regret, more of an “i wish…”) is that I knew the exact time/place he was going to propose once the day came. I love surprises but I have a really bad habit of guessing/pushing (okay forcing!) the surprise out of the surpriser. We made dinner plans for a Wednesday, it rained and he thought “Well, I don’t want to propose tonight in the middle of a resturaunt” (I am NOT the girl who wants a ton of people staring during that moment!) so he rescheduled our reservation for Friday when the weather was supposed to be clear and I kept asking “why why why” so finally he said “so everything would be perfect” and I knew what he meant. I clearly had disappointed him a little by pushing, and our night was still really special and I’m thankful we have what we do, I just want you to keep in mind that he might want to keep it somewhat ‘surprising’ even if it’s not much of a shock πŸ˜‰ I mean, let’s get real, I picked my ring up from the jewler because he couldn’t get off work! HA!

Ok, so long story short–enjoy every minute of this weekend–EVEN if he doesn’t propose. Don’t push it. Just keep in mind why you want a proposal in the first place–it’s for the man, not the ring πŸ˜‰

Easier said than done. I know. πŸ™‚ Good luck!!!

I just wanted to tell you that I FEEL YOU! My SO promised in July that I would have the ring on my hand by September 1st…. and still no ring! I’m like… dude you’re running out of time. And you’re right… IT IS TORTURE!

I hope that this is your weekend, I know how hard it is to plan things behind the scenes and not be able to tell your family about it!

Such a hard wait. I too knew it was coming “soon” for awhile and every weekend we had a nice dinner or something planned I would get excited. Hope you enjoyed this weekend, and maybe have something sparkly on your left hand!

@aberry: “He’s sweet, but he generally doesn’t make references to carnivals in our daily conversation. I’m suspicious. :)”

You just made my day with that line :). Sorry he still hasn’t done it! Boys suck sometimes.

“He even told me that he had been planning for August, but it has just been a busy month, so it’ll have to be September”

I know it’s SO HARD! You’re staying positive though, you know it will happen. You know it will happen in September. Sometimes having a date in your head makes the waiting a little easier. Even if the date changes, you can sort of nudge your “crazy” off in small segments….if that makes sense.

Awww, stay strong and keep the crazy monster at bay. My Fiance kept saying to me “It’s included in our homeowner’s policy you know you’re getting it!!!” which … didn’t help much πŸ™‚  Keep updating us.
