I dont think you need money to have great proposal. I dont think you need a big diamond either. That being said I guess Id rather him spend more on the ring just because I would want good quailty. Vacations and grand jesters can be done at anniversaries or birthdays. I am simple And wouldnt mind a low key proposal. And 8400 is to much money for a 2 day event, I would rather take that money and go to Aruba for a week just the two of us for half that price.  

And also there is an amazing hotel in banff that has a 4 day romantic package with most of things you mentioned for about 1900-2500 (depending when you go), Id rather go there as well.

I think paying $10,000 for either option is ridiculous, personally.

Yeah, I’m sorry… I agree with the PPs. I think I would be a bit mad about either scenario. 

I know it ruins the fun of the post…

To start, I’ll be happy with whatever my honey wants to get me but this is a WYR so…

I’d say the ring because, let’s be real, you get either a daily look at the ring or an awesome memory. Both are great but I’d rather have the majority of the cost be the ring. 🙂

babeba:  Ring all the way! I may be biased, though, because we live in a beautiful mountain town anyway!

If I was stuck in the limits of your propposed question the ring for sure.

prahajess:  I’m with you on this one.


I would probably freak out (in a bad way) if my Fiance tried either one of these things. That said, I wouldn’t mind a 10000$ vacation,  but it better be at least two weeks somewhere amazing for that crazy price. And if he blew that much on some stupid dramatized proposal I would be one unhappy camper.

10k ring hands down, which is the route he went – my dream ring with a proposal in his living room.  I couldn’t care less about some fantasy proposal, but I’ll have my ring on my finger forever.  I’m not huge on fancy luxury experiences at all.  $8400 on 2 nights is insane to me!  We went to Italy & Switzerland for 3 weeks on just a little more than that!

Damn, if we had $10,000, we’d spend $3000 on the ring and the remaining $7000 on new couches!! hahaha wwe really need new couches…

Prefer money went into ring rather than proposal. Ring lasts longer. I know the memory of the proposal lasts forever but you don’t need money for a great proposal. In fact I personally would be uncomfortable with an ostentatious proposal. I know not everyone would, some people would love it but I can only offer my own opinion and that’s it.

The ring. Duh. The proposal lasts a day (and that package is a complete rip off btw), the ring you keep for life.
