    I wasn’t nervous, but our engagement was an open process.  I don’t think it’s weird not to be nervous.  Good luck, I hope yours is great!

    Once I realized what was about to happen (approximately ten seconds before he got down on one knee) I got some major butterflies, but it was awesome!!  I was more excited than anything.

    @Brideonabudgetlauren:  Same here.

    When I saw him kneeling in the snow my stomach went crazy and yes I was a bit nervous. Up until that point when I knew he had a ring I wasn’t nervous but excited…oh so excited.

    I wasn’t nervous, and I had a pretty good idea it was coming!  But as we were walking to the place where I thought he was going to propose (and he did!) I did start to get a little nervous excitment, but not really nervous!

    Well, since the proposal took both of us by surprise, I didn’t really have time to be nervous.

    I’m more concerned if he will make a joke during it. I love him to death and his jokes, He does it when he is nervous. so I’m hoping….lol. 

    I dont know. Whatever happens it will be perfect.

    @MissMeowMeow:  I knew it was coming.  In fact we both planned to get engaged during a certain season/year (which was over a year out from the actual timing).  We talked about it, we planned things with “when” like “when you move in here” – because I was going to move in after engagement.  So it was in the foreground.


    But when he actually proposed, I was surprised.  He did such a good job!  I may have started the day with a hunch, but I forgot a few hours into the day.


    Now when I saw the part of the proposal written in the snow, and he was up on the ridge, I still had to hike to him uphill and all that while I was starting to get nervous – not “Uh, oh” nervous, but “OMG here’s that moment!” nervous.

    I too knew it was coming…as we were going to pick up the custom ring on our weekend away.  I must admit the control freak in me was a part of the process.  BUT…since I knew about it I was too confident and would have bet my life it was gonna happen the next day.  He was able to catch me off guard and pull off the biggest surprise ever.  I ended up crying and was in so much shock that it was heppening I don’t really remember what he said.  I would have never imagined that he would be able to make it a surprise.  I am so happy he got that reaction and moment as I was starting to feel bad that I may take that away from him.  It was perfect.


    Don’t stress…he will figure out a way!

    I am nervous! I was married before but didn’t have a proposal and he was married before but didn’t make an elaborate proposal. He really wants everything to be perfect and for us to have an amazing memory and to really surprise me. I am so worried that I won’t respond the right way. Sometimes when I am really touched or moved I feel like I try to hide it and play it cool so I don’t cry or freak out but I know he is going to be hoping for a big reaction from me. Exciting and wonderful and stressful all at once! Send some of your cool as a cucumber vibes my way please!

    I was more anxious than nervous. IMO, they’re basically the same feeling but nervous is more negative.

    I had NO idea it was coming. He surprised me at home after dinner out. We were in the kitchen and all of a sudden he had the ring. I was VERY nervous. I actually just looked at the ring and like an idiot said “what is that?”. Haha he didn’t really know what to do and just said ummmm it’s for you, you can touch it you know!  Silly, but cute, and I was sooo anxious and caught off guard when it happened.
