That would drive me nuts… I’m so glad I didn’t know about my proposal, it took me by utter surprise!

I’m with you dannyb417, if I had known he had my ring for over a week, I would have gone crazy! And I was totally surprised.

My Fiance dropped MAJOR hints when he purchased my ring.  I was on edge for a week before he proposed!

Ahhh! So exciting! My FH had the ring for 1.5 MONTHS before he proposed!!! Thank goodness I didn’t know he had it cause I was already antsy and if I knew it was in his physical possession I think I would have just lost it.

Ditto Miss Marquis!  Our ring has landed too.  Wondering when because he knows I will not secure one thing without the bling!

What a tease, that would drive me crazy and I would probably also want to tear through the house looking for it!  Can’t wait to see the pics when he does give it to you.

My husband had my ring for 4 months before he proposed to me.  He never flat out told me it was in but everyonce in a while dropped me a hint.  I actually almost found it one day while cleaning (he hid it in his ice skates).  I am really glad I ultimately didn’t because his proposal was perfect! (and well worth the wait).


Good Luck!

My guy waited 6 months before proposing. To make matters worse, I helped pick out the ring, so I knew it was in his possession. I wanted an antique ring so we made a surprise trip to NYC to pick it out, and ended up buying it that day.

Everything we did together made me wonder if that would be the moment. The wait was well worth it in the end.

I feel your pain, just hang in there, I am sure he wants it to be just as perfect as you imagine!

Marquisemiss!!!  I’m so excited for you, and I know exactly how you feel.

My FH and I actually started planning our wedding before I had a ring.  We had already booked the reception hall, church and photographer.  One day, we were hanging out and I sensed something tingling in the air.  I knew my ring was ready.  I didn’t know where it was but I knew it was there and the "official" proposal was imminent.  Like your fiance, my FH wanted to suprise me with the proposal and the ring.  About a month later he proposed, almost exactly 1 year before our wedding date.  He had wanted to propose the exact day but another close friend got engaged that day and he changed his plans.
