My sweetie told me last night that he found my secret Wedding pinterest board. He went to get on Pinterest to see why I’m always on it, and apparently I was still logged in. I AM SO EMBARRASSED!!!!!!!! because well, there’s like 550 pins, lol.
My thoughts are that by taking my time now and lazily looking at what I really want my wedding to be like, that when the time comes, I won’t be an obsessive bridezilla.
He laughed and teased me, but came over and kissed me and told me it’s ok- after all, we’ve been dreaming about our wedding together for quite some time, no ring yet.
Do you keep your wedding board secret? Does your sweetie know about your wedding pinterest board? I personally just feel uncomfortable having it public until I’m actually engaged.
Should I start pinning more pictures of engagement rings now that he knows about it? 😉 haha

@chic_and_fabulous: Once he found mine we share it and pin to different boards on it. Kinda break it up by price range so we have budget all the way up to dream, we plan to choose from each to make one cohesive day. Im relieved he found mine because we had talked about the wedding and planned a good portion but he pinned a dress the other day and it is THE dress. He also says he falls in love with me more when he finds certain pins that I love, like having a cigar bar. I’d pin rings if he doesnt know what kind you want or if you arent going to go shopping together to get ideas.

I don’t have Pinterest, but I am very open with my FI about the things that are important to me for a wedding (and everything else). We have inspiration pictures on our computer, which we both have access to.

Hahahah! I feel like this is the hypothetical equivolent of finding your SO’s porn history on the computer.
I try to stay on the down low with all of my wedding ideas/planning because we are not officially engaged yet. However, he called me on his way home from work the other day and said “What do you think of ___(classic song)___ for our first dance at our wedding?”
I was so shocked! He never brings up things like that. I bet your SO is excited to move forward with you, and that’s why he was happy and teasing you, instead of acting like he is weirded out 🙂

@ArizonaGirl: HAHAHA! That is the best analogy ever of the equivalency of finding my sweetie’s porn!!!!!!!! LOLOL.
Yay! It sounds like you’re around the same point in waiting as I am!!!!!
My sweetie is a groomzilla already- he insists on getting married on the beach, barefoot- and already has half of his invite list picked out, as well as who he wants in the wedding. In fact, he’s already taken over half of the bridesmaids side too!
Any idea of when you think your man will propose?

well he sounds awesome! Mine insists on a wedding in Chicago (we live in AZ), and a three tier cake. I mean, could he be more random? LOL

@chic_and_fabulous: Ha Ha. Don’t worry at all. Guys know how we are. Just laugh it off and say this is how girls are. We plan our wedding since we are four years old.
My boyfriend know all about my stuff LOL. I am just proactive and tell him in advance.
By the way, you need to get this app called: The Vow. You can take a pic of your hand and virtually try on engagement rings HAHA.

Lol that’s amusing. I don’t have my Pinterest linked to my Facebook or anything, I think only one person other than my SO knows I’m on there, so I’m good to go. SO didn’t/doesn’t care… he knows I like wedding shows too and just tolerates it, even before we got engaged haha.

I discovered Pinterest because of WBee… so naturally I started up a site (and it was just around the time they announced that you could have PRIVATE BOARDS… I wholeheartedly embraced that. So that is what I did, I kept 3 PRIVATE Pin-Boards filled with Ceremony – Reception – and Honeymoon ideas). It worked out really well. No regrets.
Mr TTR sort of knew I had a Pinterest Board… in so much as I am sure I mentioned it in passing… but I never shared it with him.
Hope this helps,

I didn’t pin wedding stuff on pinterest or join any wedding websites until we got engaged 🙂

@chic_and_fabulous: it sounds like he was amused. Which is always the best reaction to something that can potentially go wrong. I kept mine a secret even when we were already engaged and planning. I like to keep some things private, I would have been embarrassed too, but I think it’s so cute he reacted well. Yes, pin those rings! It seams plan comfortable with the idea of a life with you.

My fi told me he knew about my secret board because I made the mistake of showing his talky- mom when I was “waiting.” Apparently this was not a surprise or big deal to him because he didn’t mention it until it came up (post engagement!)
It’s totally femporn and OK!

oh pinterest… I let no one see my secret wedding board on pinterest: no sister, no parent and right now, no SO’s. They would probably think that i’ve gone mad planning a wedding without a ring. It is the exact same thing with WeddingBee. Just like what a fellow bee said, when the SO enter’s the house an alarm goes off in my head “Code Red! Code Red! BOYFRIEND IN THE HOUSE!”
Sometimes I’ve considered letting it hang out for him to see and hope it would speed up the process but I won’t do that.
It was such an awesome day when the secret boards were created. I opened my wedding board almost immediately.
