@GirlWithTheGlassSlippers:  The fuck? Honestly, I would get mad right back at him! Tell him, if there is something he knows that you don’t know, then he can plan his own damn party!

Is his planning a that-night engagement party?

Fiance planned one for us/all our friends the night we got engaged without me knowing!

You’re engaged when you agree that you are. What’s the hold up for announcing engagement? Is he making you wait around for some big production where he “proposes” a question that has clearly already been asked and answered? Personally I’d probably tell him to skip the so-called proposal at this point, sounds like he wants to just go ahead with getting married.

that sounds so odd! Well obvioulsy if you dont have a ring and you havent talked about it then why would you start planing?!

That’s crazy!!!  Most men would be upset if you did start planning without a proposal.  Mine gets uncomfortable if i watch wedding shows on tv.

@GirlWithTheGlassSlippers:  def wouldn’t officially plan anything without officially being engaged…but that’s just me! If you feel the same way, which I think you do, you should tell him so! He can’t be mad…he hasn’t upheld his end of the engagement bargain. LOL. No ring=no party

Honestly, it’s really odd to be planning an engagement party without being engaged. It’s like having a baby shower when you’re not pregnant yet.

@GirlWithTheGlassSlippers:  We have had our dream engagement party planned for the last 6 or so months.  It wasnt intentional: we were at our favorite spot one night and started talking about what a great venue it would be to hold the party and talked to a couple of folks in their planning department while we were there who happened to be in.  We havent (obviously) set a date for it or put down a deposit, but otherwise it’ll be good to go when we call with that info.

 

Same goes for our wedding venue.  Literally all we need to do is send a deposit once he pops the question (easy to do when you’re having a beach wedding and just need to firm up plans with the decorators).

 

As you know, we are not engaged yet.  I’m sure some folks we know may think it’s a bit backward, but those same folks also know we have moved twice in the last year across the country and have had plenty of time to plan and get excited for it…but unfortunately, moving drains the finances so a ring has taken a longer time for him to aquire. 

 

Everyone’s process is different.

@GirlWithTheGlassSlippers:  He claims he’s going to the jeweler this week, so it looks like he’s going to have to be answering that question soon 🙂
