I’m in the same boat as you. My fiancé yes I call him that sometimes now… He asked me to marry him but he didn’t have a ring yet so he wants to keep it quiet for now. I think it’s a pride thing men have. there are a few people who know like my mom and a few friends but we haven’t made an announcement yet till he gets me a ring. And like you I can’t have any parts of picking it out. :(.  But if he asked you  ring or no ring your off the waiting list

  • Wedding: October 2015

@boardersarita:  Well, I vented that pressure a bit in the begining by squeaking to a few of my friends (one of the main reasons we were waiting to announce our engagement is because of his sister who was supposed to be getting married soon, and these friends don’t even know her so it was ok) I started getting more antsy about it in june/july, because his sister’s wedding is postponed until further notice (financial reasons, their relationship is fine) and I wanted to start planning ours! So in July we set a date for October to announce our engagement (pretending like it’s brand new) (and we also set our wedding date for the same day another year!) and just knowing concretely when it was upcoming was enough to keep me happy ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m in exactly the same boat. I saw this ring that i absolutely fell in love with 5 years ago and he and i went to the jewellers a month or so back. We’ve been together 8 years and we have 2 beautiful boys together. He knows i wanna marry him and he wants to marry me too but we’re secretly planning the wedding too. So much to research I already know the date, my possible colour scheme, flowers, table centrepieces possible venues who’s in my bridal party, possible photographers so yes this is classed as an engagement. My man proposed to me with a burger ring!!!! ha ha sooo cute now im just waiting xxxx I’ll keep you posted KEEP US POSTED @boardersarita : ) SO MUCH FUN but no harm in planning planning planning

@MabelleBliss:  eeee me too! We got ‘secretly engaged’ in February when we found out the only venue we ever wanted gets booked up 18 months in advance – we did the math and thought “yep – September 2013 sounds like the perfect time!” and bit the bullet and booked it.

It was so freaking exciting at the beginning. For about a month I tried not to tell everyone I knew, but I limited it to my BFF. Our parents don’t even know and it’s a really big thing for him to do it properly with a ring and everything.

We also wanted to announce it a year before, too, but the ring I picked was slightly more expensive than we originally budgeted for so it’s been pushed back a tad!
