I think it sounds like a great plan, and so romantic! You’re right, if you both know you want to get married, even if it’s not until some loose ends are tied up, what’s stopping you from taking a step closer to that goal? And if it turns out he still wants to ask you, I think it’s a neat idea for a couple to propose to each other.

A somewhat side note, I love it when men have engagement rings, too. My Fiance wears a simple tungsten band. πŸ™‚

Best of luck with whatever you decide to do!

I love this!  I think you should go for it (:  Seriously.  There’s no doubt that you have a great plan laid out here.  You have my vote!

OOOH I say go for it!

Fiance proposed to me in April; however, I wanted to propose BACK to him. I don’t see why the guy should be the only one that proposes, or why the girl should be the only one to wear a ring! SOOOO….I bought him a tungsten band from Amazon and proposed with it last night!!! It was really nervewracking; I didn’t realize how much pressure it actually is…even though we’re already engaged! Hah. I couldn’t even get out the words; fortunately, on the box the ring came in, I took a white marker and wrote “Will you…marry me back?” on it, and I just sat there in front of him all teary-eyed and said, “I can’t get the words out but I wrote them, so can you answer the question?” It was really fun! Unfortunately, the ring is too big so I’m going to have to send it in to get the right size. AHH. Oh well. πŸ˜€ sorry I ranted a lil. Lol.

@Omgbunnies:  Go for it, girl!!!!  I would LOVE to hear your proposal story!  If SO hadn’t flat-out told me that he is talking to my Dad on Father’s Day Weekend, I was starting to get the itch to propose again.  LOL!  Take the bull by the horns and ask him!

The bands look great!  I was considering this for SO:

You still get the tradition of sealing the deal with a diamond but in a very macho way.  πŸ˜‰

I would pay for it myself.  The groom is *technically* is charge of planning/paying for the honeymoon, so you can joke about how he’s got a high standard to live up to πŸ˜‰

Reading this post over lunch made me start making a twist tie ring… I think we all have weddings on the brain!!

I would take care of everything myself.  I believe I mentioned this in your previous post, but I did propose to my Fiance and it was nerve wracking!  But AWESOME!  It sounds like you are taking what he likes into consideration which is huge (my Fiance did not want a large crowd around.)  Once he says yes, it is the best feeling!  You feel very vulnerable when you ask though!  It is a HUGE question.

Your plans sound great!  Best wishes to you!

Sometimes I think we’d all be better off if we just proposed – I think most of us ladies can pull off something far more romantic than we get in return (guys either seem to go from one extreme to the other – either something very romantic or “Here, here’s the ring you picked out, congrats, you’re engaged.”)

 

I think your idea is very romantic, well thought-out, etc.
