What are some good examples of proof of engagement?

Do you mean the new letter of intent? We never provided proof of engagement at our interview.

We gave a new letter of intent to marry from the US citizen, and I brought pictures from throughout our relationship and other ongoing relationship evidence with me.

If you are talking about something cultural specific then you would provide pictures of your cultures engagement party/ceremony etc.

I'm there too - Proof of engagement to your fiance - I'm going to include receipts of my wedding dress and engagement ring (with pictures), and of our engagement announcement which we mailed, as well as email correspondence with a priest about marrying in his church. I believe, though, that it's *like* updated proof of a relationship information: updated letters of intent, new pictures of visits, boarding passes/passport stamps, and anything at all that shows one of you is leaving his/her country behind shortly and preparing to marry in the States.

Of course, I would also welcome any further suggestions! B-)

We attached a letter of intent to the petition, and then later brought a renewed letter of intent to the visa interview, though the interviewing officer did not even request or look at it.

As mentioned by a previous poster, this may be an embassy specific question best posed in the appropriate regional forum.

We supplied letters of intent to marry at the interview as well as an abundance of evidence of ongoing relationship.

No further proof of intent to marry was given.

A letter of intent from each person. We used the VJ sample exactly, just changed the names and dates.

These are all really good ideas, thanks for the suggestion about including the correspondence with the priest that will be marrying you. I hadn't thought of that, since we have to do this Engaged Encounter weekend we could include our certificate that we have to submit to the church of having completed that weekend retreat. Thanks for getting my thoughts going as well...

I submitted about 13 engagement pictures, a couple with family members, and fiance siblings along with a letter of intent from each of us. I did submit copies of cell phone bills, emails, and receipt of roses sent to her from the USA.

I never read where you had to prove engagement, but only to prove ongoing relationship. To prove ongoing relationship, I provided proof of my trip going to visit recently. We do however have our receipt from the ring and we did a save the date "tentative.". I hope this helps.

I understand that for the interview we will need to provide proof of our engagement. What exactly would meet this requirement for proof of engagement?

I do not believe anywhere you have to prove you are engaged. I believe the signed letters of intent are just that. The proof for interview is ongoing communication, the fact your significant other can answer many questions about you that they should know, pictures of you guys together. Of course if you have receipts for engagement ring and pictures with her wearing it and you guys together, that is good secondary evidence...but in no way is required.

We included the orginal letter of Intent to Marry in the Petition, pictures of our Turkish Engagement Ceremony, Engagement Rings Receipt & picture of our Jewler with our rings on same colour copy page. I am currently working on a Save The Date, but we really are waiting for the NOA2 so as not to be doing this in vain.

I do not believe anywhere you have to prove you are engaged.

The DS-156K form says to "attach the following documents" and includes things like a birth certificate, police certificate, Evidence of Financial Support etc, and "Evidence of Engagement to your Fiance(e)".

This form is submitted with Packet 3 before an interview can be booked. Still, I'm not sure they *can* say, "Ma'am you don't have a ring, are you really engaged?" so the evidence for this is probably flexible? Updated letters of intent are good evidence in lieu of culturally laden evidence of support?
