Hah, no I wish. I was wearing a bathrobe and had a towel in my hair!

My fiance insisted that I have a perfect dress to go out in on our trip to Las Vegas. Then he insisted I wear it out on the night he proposed. He also bought it for me, so I should have known right then and there that he was going to propose!

I dropped similar hints like you did, and he made sure I was dressed appropriately the night it happened. You should be good to go!

I was in a black skirt, white blouse, and pink scarf when he proposed.  I had just gotten home from work and hadn’t changed yet.

I bought a really cute gray dress, and I kept wearing it everytime we were supposed to do something fun and a little out of the ordinary for us.

I ended up wearing it about three times before I scored gold (literally! :)). Fiance ended up spoiling the suprise and told me the day he was going to propose, but to be fair, I was going to wear it that day anyway :).

Anytime he seems a little bit more excited, I would throw on one of your dresses. Especially if you’re going outside of normal date territory.

Good luck!

My friend was going on weekend trip with her boyfriend, and she was convinced he was going to purpose, so she went out and bought the “perfect” dress to wear on the Saturday night of their trip.

He proposed on Friday. She was in yoga pants because they had just gotten out of the car after the long drive.

God laughs while you’re making plans!!

…And trust me, when it does happen, what you are wearing is so far from being something that you think about.

I was wearing PJ’s, but to be fair, he totally surprised me. I knew a proposal was coming, but I didn’t think he’d gotten the ring yet. I was wrong!

I have no idea what either NotFroofy or I wore when I proposed to her.  I don’t think either of us cared.

Fiance proposed to me at the end of a scavenger hunt, and the first clue i got told me to go upstairs (the clue was in our mailbox) and change into something nice. it was a friday after work and since i work from home (and it was the summer), he knew i’d probably be wearing shorts and a tshirt. and right he was – if i hadn’t been instructed to change, i would have been wearing old shorts and a 90210 tshirt. not that i would have cared at all, but he had made dinner reservations at a nice restaurant for after the proposal and i don’t think they would have looked kindly on my attire.

Well first i was SWEATING like a beast and then it downpoured, in white shorts…i think he liked it. haha

I’ll be honest even though I knew he was going to propose and he was dressed up from going out to breakfast with my parents, I still wore jeans and a t-shirt. Mind you it was a “nicer” t-shirt that I wear under blazers sometimes but it was still a t-shirt.

I would work out the days he would most likely propose (do youthink he’ll set a significant time aside, etc?) and on those days wear the dress.
