FI (or BF what have you...) and I are getting married, wedding planning etc, but there is still no ring or proposal. We're in the midst of ring shopping and would like to wait till fall to "get engaged" and announce it to everyone. He still wants to have a romantic proposal, but we're a little confused how to do this when I'm picking the ring and it won't be a surprise.
Any ideas on how to encourage him that a traditional proposal is possible? ie - let him go buy the ring and make plans, but not letting me know when exactly?
