So my BF and I have been talking about getting engaged and married for a few months now. Two weeks ago, he took me ring shopping and then later let it spill that he planned to buy my engagement ring with his tax check and even told me to expect a proposal by the end of March. No doubt I'm excited! I can't wait to marry him! I've already been surfing The Knot like crazy to get wedding ideas. But as excited as I am, I feel like there's no element of surprise because I know it's coming. Granted, I don't know EXACTLY when or how he's going to ask. I'm just curious: Did you know your FI was going to propose before he did? Do you think it's important for it to be a surprise?
