My fiance and I had been dating for nearly four years before I finally felt that it was time for me to ask her to marry me. I had never felt that I was in the position to provide the things that I wanted to provide to my family when I had one. Once I realized that the time may never come that I feel that I am in the position to provide everything that I wanted to, I came to the conclusion that it was time to just do it.

That afternoon, I started shopping for an engagement ring for her. I had an idea of what she wanted in a ring but I was unsure of exactly where to start looking for it. I have read several articles about how to buy the best engagement ring and what to avoid when buying one, so I kind of knew what I had to do to get perfection.

I started shopping around the jewellers in London and found a few rings that I really liked. There were so many to choose from that I was taken back for a few minutes. I finally folded and decided to ask for help. I called my fiance’s best friend and asked her to meet me at the jewellers. It only took her about fifteen minutes to make her way to the store. I knew that if anyone would know exactly what my fiance would want that it would be her best friend. I had a feeling that the two of them had been looking at rings for at least the last two years and I was right.

We hopped in the car and took off to the other jewellery shop. London has so many jewellers to choose from and I was not exactly sure which one had the ring that my fiance would want, so I am so glad that her friend was nice enough to help me out.

Once we had the ring, I began planning how I was going to ask her to marry me. I knew that I had to do it right. I wanted to make it as special of a day as I possibly could since she had been so patient in waiting for me to be ready to ask her to marry me. I ended up getting a limo, making dinner reservations at her favorite restaurant and making arrangement for a string quartet to be at the place in the park where she and I first met many years ago.

The day that I planned to ask her came much quicker than I expected. I got all dressed up, got in the limo and headed to meet her. She opened her door and I was no longer nervous. She looked stunning. The rest of the night was absolutely perfect and she said yes as soon as she saw the engagement ring that I presented her with.
