I have a date set for my wedding next fall, but no ring!!! I know that venues book up pretty fast, and we both want to get married in Banff so we booked the venue! I still don’t have a ring, but I’m hoping for one before christmas. I have totally been planning my face off, even tho we’re not officially engaged. I’m working on my guest list and invites, we have the food,beverages and venue. I am doing alot DIY so i need all the time i can get, even if i’m not engaged I know I will be soon! I really hope he proposes soon, I have also been waiting 8yrs and yes, life has a tendancy to get in the way!!! I know how hard it is to wait, it is NOT fun.

I was that way too. Our wedding is 7 1/2 months away. But he never proposed. We got our marriage certificate (and license) yesterday so now we’re officially married (with no fanfare). Now we have only 7 1/2 months to plan it all and I’m a little worried, too.


But… it will all come together!


Good luck. 🙂

I am in the same place.  The rings are purchased and he has designed the invitations. We still have some area to play around with the date but I am starting to panic with everything.

Ok here’s the thing… I know you want this big romantic engagement and all, but if you have chosen a date for the wedding together and picked and reserved a reception venue, then you are engaged.  Rings and proposals are nice, but they don’t REALLY matter in the long run.  The important thing is the commitment to each other and it sounds like that is very well in place.

But if you are adamant about getting that proposal before you begin planning, then just sit him down and tell him very frankly that he has until xyz day to propose or you flat out won’t have the time to plan a wedding for the date you have picked out.  He’s a guy.  He very likely has NO clue what goes into planning a wedding especially one that’s on the other side of the ocean!

We are going to book the reception and ceremony site soon.  Already have date set, looking/meeting w/photographers and I’m STILL Waiting for the ring.  Will be 2 months now at the end of this month.  But I believe I’m getting mine next month ( I hope).  He started to joke w/me about getting it in April.  I said I’m NOT waiting until my b-day or a baseball game…he was like no april fools I said NO, by end of Jan.!!!

It will come!

Congratulations!  Now you will have to post a picture of your ring. 

Just wanted to share on the topic of guys not knowing how long it takes to plan a wedding:  My bf informed me that he would probably propose this coming summer, and want to get married sometime around next Christmas.  Oh really huh?  Have fun with that!!

CONGRATULATIONS!  I am glad everything turned out well for you.  I have been with my fiance for about 9 years and finally said yes after the fourth proposal.


Wishing you the best of luck!

Congrats! Glad you finally got the ring and can start planning both your weddings!!

I had been dating Fiance for 8 years. He just proposed 4 months ago. Because I had been waiting for it for sooooo long, it wasn’t all that I imagined it to be. It wasn’t the big romantic thing I had envisioned…..however it was him! The proposal was so him and if he had done it in the way I envisioned in my dreams, it wouldn’t have been so him.

He actually had planned a big to do the week before he proposed. He and my friend worked together to plan this surprise party where he was going to propose but i was onto him and told my friend I thought he was finally going to do it. She in turn told him, that I was on to him. So he didn’t do it then. He did it a week later in his kitchen….

So my thinking is — it may or may not be what you’ve imagined. However, it’ll be what it’s supposed to be. Be content in that!  <
