This week in the forums our members are talking about their pending engagements.
Anxiousfloridagirl explains her predicament: "Last night, my FH and I talked about when we wanted to get married... He seemed very interested and excited about setting a date. My question is, he hasn't officially proposed, so when do I tell my mother?"
JennHugsJake gave some advice, "Wait till the ring is on your finger. I let it slip that we were about to get engaged before we got engaged, and when we did get engaged some of the excitement wasn't there."
Auntofthebride offered a few more words of wisdom, "Engagement starts as a private understanding between the couple, then move to a public announcement and active planning. You are at that private understanding stage. So, keep it under your hat for a while."
Did you wait for a ring to announce your engagement or did you tell a your friends and family about your marriage plans right away? What would you do in this situation?
