- Wedding: August 2013
I’m off the list!! Sorry this might be long but its worth the read 🙂 We got engaged in Cozumel Mexico this last Saturday and he tricked me so good!
Now, you would think because we were going on a cruise that I would’ve been expecting a proposal but he set it up so nicely I was completely surprised. I picked out the setting myself so I was there when the jeweler (also a good friend of ours) told us it would take 3-4 weeks to come in. That would mean the ring wouldn’t be in until maybe end of August early September also the cruise was something we had booked spur of the moment with another couple that we’re friends with. Turns out he rushed the ring order AND our friend told the jeweler that it was for her brother so they got it all done in a week. My FI has been sitting on this bad boy for a whole week before he proposed.
Skip to on the cruise: the first day we were there my FI and I were out on the deck just hangning out by ourselves when he started saying how it would’ve been so cool if the ring would’ve came in already because he would have loved to propose in another country. And I knew that I was somewhat to blame for the ring taking so long since I ended up changing the setting. Well he seemed so down about the whole thing and I did my best to cheer him up saying we’re going to have so much fun any way and to not worry and we’re going to be swimming with dolphins and we’re going to have a blast! And he seemed to cheer up a lot after that.
So Saturday we docked at Cozumel and we got to go in the water with two dolphins and play with them and they let us hold on to their fins and took us on a ride it was amazing! Afterwards I told everyone this was the best day of my life (I’ve always wanted to swim with dolphins!) We then had some lunch and then FI and his friend were suppose to go diving but he told him he didn’t want to go anymore. All rest of the lunch I kept assuring him that he should really go dive with his friend and his friend kept asking him why he didn’t want to dive. My FI kept saying he didn’t think they’d have enough time and he didn’t want us girls to be wandering around Mexico by ourselves, etc…
Well I went to the restroom and that’s when he told our friends he was planning on proposing to me! And they were like OMG!!! When I got out of the restroom everyone said they wanted to explore the beach so we all start walking to the other side of the beach which we heard was beautiful and completely secluded. I noticed he had his shorts on and I asked him why he changed? He told me that he had to carry things like the camera, his wallet, etc… but that he had his boardshorts on underneath still. I told him he could’ve just given it to me and I would’ve carried my bag but he said don’t worry about it, so I didn’t.
We get to the edge and we took a picture of our friends with the beautiful background. Then they told us to get in for a picture. FI kept telling me to take my glasses off but I didn’t want to because I was sweating. Everyone kept insisting that I take it off so I did and clipped it in my bathing suit. While we’re taking a picutre I felt my FI fussing and I thought he was trying to make sure my sunglasses were secure and I turned to him and said “Baby, what are you doing? They’re fine!”
And that’s when I see him go down on one knee. Still, I didn’t get it. I quickly asked him if he was ok? If his knee was hurting again? And then he pulled out a red box. STILL I did not get it until he opened the box and I saw the ring. I immediatly started swearing (i know very unlady like and embarrassing) and yelling things like “NO F-ing WAY!! YOU DID NOT!! ARE YOU F-ING SERIOUS?!” I kept thinking about all the little trickery he had done this whole time having me COMPLETELY CONVINCED that the ring was not even done being made!! He starts laughing and he asks me to marry him and I just hug him and tear up and finally I say yes. And we were just holding each other for a long time before we finally broke apart.
I start to run over to hug our friends but he stops me and tells me he’s going to need me to put on the ring first. I start laughing and came back to put it on and just hugged and kissed him again. It was amazing, beautiful and such a surprise and I am the happiest woman alive!!! Now for some pictures!!
