Male engagement rings? Did you do it?

So a lot of you know I've been having an extremely rough time with our engagement and wedding planning. We've talked and talked and I think we're mending things up. When he first proposed to me (and it was really wonderful) he had a ring that he purchased with me a while back and told me he would wear the ring as a symbol of the commitment he made and never took it off. It was too big on him and it fell off and he seems to have lost it. So yesterday I took him to the mall and had him professionally sized (what an awkward situation that was once the lady found out we already had our wedding bands) because I needed his size for his band anyways. Saturday I ordered a new ring for him (I really hope if fits as there might be differences in sizing from different places.) and I hope it arrives before wenesday as we're going away on a trip and I'd love to "propose" to him as a new start at trying again at everything. Do you think I'm being cheesy? I don't think he'd get offended since he got to do the proper traditional proposal and it was fantastic.

So I hope he appreciates the gesture. What do you all think? Also what are your feeling about male engagement rings? Feel free to share pics! His is a tungeston band with green (his favorite color) carbon inlay. I figure he could use it as stand in when he's doing yard work and stuff and as a RHR all the other times once we get married. :)

I agree with Nicole! I think that is just precious and a very romantic sentiment! I would have done so if I had thought about it!

I love it!
I proposed to him with an engagement ring. I even got him another ring as a wedding band.
He loved that I was strong enough to do it!
Good for the two of you!!!!!

Thanks ladies. I doubt it will happen this weekend because I don't think the ring will be ready in time. I couldn't get him to be sized sooner or I'd have ordered sooner. Any ideas what I can do after the fact if it doesnt make it in time?

You could plan a nice romantical date for the two of you, even something as simple as making him a home cooked meal and eating with with candle light. Or maybe save it for some special outting you have coming up after this weekend.  


Good luck and let us know if you plan it!

Thank you! I will. I could save it for another outing but don't want to wait so long. I want to give him time to wear it as an e-ring before he "replaces" it. Yah know. :P even though there's plenty of time. Oh well. Ill figure something out. Maybe something with one of his hobbies (magic, warhammer, or video games) hmm...

 Just wanted to let the girls know who are following me that the weekend went wonderfully! The rings arrived Saturday so not in time for our trip but we still had a wonderful time. So now I just need to plot something special. I accidentally slipped that I had something planned for this weekend and I was disappointed it didn't happen so now he's curious. Lol oh well. Guess it should make it more exciting. :)
