So bf and I have been together for 4 years…been talking about marriage about 3 years. 6 weeks ago we went and picked a ring….very exciting but it had to be custom made…I’m very fussy a bout setting! We thought it would be ready 3weeks ago so bf planned a big weekend away…I told everyone we were getting engaged but the ring wasn’t ready! I was very disappointed and were still waiting. I’m going crazy and its taking the romance out of the proposal…I feel excited but I’m not able to talk about wedding plans. We’re due to meet a planner next weekend but I’m not going if I don’t have my ring…I’ll feel like a fraud! If its not ready i will just die of disappointment….

@Cupid: It sucks that it’s not ready. Custom makes usually take from 6-8 weeks so that’s a pretty standard time frame. Anyways, think of this as an excuse to hint hint something to your bf that you’d like in the proposal 😉

@Cupid: MY fiance wanted to do a formal proposal because I never had one. We had already set a date and agreed to be married. My ring was custom it had a lot of bumps in the road that set it back. We chose to not announce our engagement until the ring was done to most people. Our parents, and closest friends knew however. If you have an appointment keep it. This is not a situation where he’s avoiding proposal this is a situation of things taking longer than expected. My fiance was super stressed when we had to pick a second stone, when they broke the cast, when another issue came up. He just wanted to get the ring and do his presentation.

Thanks ladies…I’m trying so hard not to die with excitement…the ring is meant to be ready for collection tomorrow and now Boyfriend or Best Friend is gone all shady…pretending like it might not be ready(or maybe he’s not pretending and it won’t be ready) ahhhhh….if this wasn’t me this would be a hilarious comedy of errors. Can’t wait to actually get engaged so we can tell everyone about this!
