- Wedding: January 2024
So my FI and I have “technically” been engaged for over 3 years, did not get my ring until Valentine’s day a year ago, but I have been talking about and planning since he first mentioned marriage.
Anyway, we set a date for last summer & my granny got really sick and went into the hospital 4 days before so we postponed, it’s easy when you are DIYing & have family hjelping with most everything. Then my granny passed in July of last year & I really did not feel like planning another wedding. I have tried several times over the last year & had finally come to the conclusion that we would elope at the beach. Well I never could pull that plan together this summer & finally figured out about 3 weeks ago that I wanted my little brother, who is serving in the Army in El Paso, TX, to be there. So we decided to just do a JOP wedding & I could get my beach ceremony next summer when my brother and his family would be home for good.
So my mom was speaking with some ladies in our church, which we have gotten really involved in again in the last year, and they are insisting that I have a church wedding. No biggie because I am sort of looking forward to planning again, FINALLY!
I was just wondering if anyone else had done the back & forth and back & forth. If you are married now, what finally sealed the deal?
