- Wedding: October 2016
So we’re engaged! He was determined to surprise me even though I had a timeline and had helped choose my ring and he managed it
We went out Saturday night for friends’ birthdays – one of his best friends and one of mine who are married and introduced us – a boys night out and a girls night and we had breakfast planned with my parents the next morning which had been their suggestion. So at about 1am no one had any intention of going home, or so I thought, but FI (1st time writing that eek!) came to find me and the girls to ask if I wanted to go home because thought he was getting a migraine, I didn’t think anything of it and we left and went to bed.
The next morning we woke up and everything seemed normal, FI suggested phoning my mum to check times and went for the phone. Once I had finished on the phone I turned around (still in bed) to let FI know details and there he was by the side of the bed but with his hands hidden behind a bit of the quilt. He had said it definitely wasn’t going to be on Sunday so I asked him what he was doing like the dope I am;
Him: What do you think?
Me: I don’t know…
Him: I have a question to ask you… do you want a cup of tea?
Me: I knew you were joking.
Him: No I’m not *moves quilt so I can see my ring*
Me: Are you serious?
And then he asked in his lovely, nervous, I’m no good with words but really I am way that was absolutely perfect and so cute! I was just in shock and nodded and kissed him and then he said ‘Is that a yes then?’ So I said ‘Yes!’ and he put my ring on and we got ready to go for breakfast with my parents.
It was low key, and very us and perfect
The ring – well with the best pictures I could get on my phone.
