Is it just me, or am I the only one who lately has been having engagement dreams/nightmares? Actually I feel like the dreams I’ve been having have been nightmares like SO proposed and the ring was AWFUL and not at all my style, or he proposed at a terrible time in front of a crowd (which I don’t want) or I found out and ruined the surprise. I guess this is a fear of mine because at being together fo 4.5 years, and all the anticipation leading up to this big moment I want it to be perfect, and i worry that after being together everyday all this time, what if SO gets the ring completely wrong, or does something that is out of character and will leave me wondering, “doesn’t he know me at all by now?” Am I being crazy or does anyone else have dreams like this?

ellagrace: I had proposal dreams (bad ones lol) when I was “waiting”.
I’ve ALWAYS been the type to say the ring doesn’t matter, the sentiment does, and I’d be happy with a piece of string etc.
But I had these dreams:
1) The ring was made of plastic and yellow gold colored. The center “stone” was purples with a halo of multi-colored plastic stones and he was SO PROUD of himself because purple is my favorite color lol. It was fugly.
2) The ring was like the size of an iphone, with different silver colored compartments that held the stones and it was gaudy and awful.
3) I was getting out of the shower and my then-bf comes in with a jewelry box. (FYI I do not want to tell my Nana I was proposed to naked) He got down on one knee, opened the box and it was a necklace. Then he pulled out another box – bracelet. And another box…another bracelet.
Then I woke up! haha!

playdohpants: hahahaha that one about the shower is great!! last night I had a nightmare he proposed with this ugly yellow gold band (no offense to yellow gold, just not my style) with no diamond and multi colored crytsals on it — and he proposed in the bathroom while I was…. going to the bathroom!!! I remember in the dream asking him to stop in the middle of this proposal because it was “not the right time.” I also remember him not getting down on one knee, and me being upset about it. I guess him getting down on one knee is more important to me than I thought! hahaha glad to know I’m not alone!

I had a dream of my FI proposing like 4 months before the actual proposal. I did not get to see the ring in the proposal in my dream. That proposal was sweet, he had closed all the lights in our apartment ( there were candles throughout the apartment) and had rose petals leading into the bedroom, where he was on one knee. I don’t think it is crazy to have dreams about the proposal. Perhaps, a sign that the proposal is coming….

ellagrace: Oh also my FI had a proposal dream too he later told me about.
We were in the moving truck on our way to our new house (we were actually moving soon in real life) and he suddenly thought I wouldn’t want to move in unless we were engaged, so he pulled over and proposed in the moving truck. Then afterwards starts panicking that he forgot to ask my dad lol.

I haven’t had dreams about bad rings (though I did have one and it was completely awful!).
I’ve had a few dreams now about trying to find a wedding dress and hating all of them. But I’m still a bee-in-waiting.

I had one recently where he proposed with a ruby cluster ring, the ring actually wasn’t that bad but was not for an engagement lol. All I really know though was that I didn’t care because he finally proposed. Waking up sucked! Lol

I did have one dream while waiting, that we opened the ring box together and the ring was blue! Like the metal and stone and everything was all royal blue lol. I woke up a bit confused!

I had one that might actually have a possibility of happening. There’s a chance I’ll be going across the country next year for an externship, and he’s said more than once that if he hasn’t asked by the time I go, he “might just show up one day” with a ring and ask while I’m there. So I’ve had dreams about that happening.

ellagrace: I have had a TON of engagement dreams since we picked up our rings. Nothing too horrifying yet, haha. I’ll say that though and tonight I’ll have a dream that she proposes with a godzilla themed ring or something…

I had one last night! It was so horrible.. My SO got so sick and tired of me bringing up getting engaged, he pulled out this box of a bunch of random diamonds and sapphires and yellow gold pieces and said that he’d been working with a jeweler to get it all made into a ring but that he was so tired of me asking when it would happen that he just gives up trying to make something nice.. He looked so disappointed and frustrated with me that I just felt horrible.
I woke up and rolled over to ask what he wanted to do for our anniversary dinner and he said I was stressing him out asking for a decision lol.. typical! Can’t decide what he wants for dinner, how can I expect him to decide he wants to spend his life with me! 3 years in and no progress at all.

I had a dream that BF proposed with a ring that looked like a snitch from HP, wings and all. I was horrified. And in my dream he was so proud of himself for getting such a unique and thoughtful ring. hahaha it was awful!
