  • Wedding: October 2014

Mine has changed a couple times it was this december as the defenite by then, but now since my sister is getting married and is the defenition of the word drama queen it is next july as the latest D-Day so her feelings dont get hurt because someone else had something in their life happen before her wedding….so it evolves….my internal walk date is 1 month after our 7 year anniversary in early 2014….so obviously there is alot that could happen between now and then.

@subtlebee:  he knows it is the ultimatum date of get it going or gone….we agreed upon it 3 years ago, mutually of if at 7 years we arent 100% there (baring some major financial crisis of epic proportions and the fact i will marry at the justice of the peace with no ring ever if thats what he wanted), then we agreed that by that point we should “shit or get off the pot”…..

and the rest of my sisters wouldnt care, the one who is getting married next year is well, the biggest drama queen i have ever met, i didnt text back within 20 seconds of her telling me she was engaged on a night i was at work and couldnt check my phone, sooo for 2 WEEKS i was a “bad non supportive sister”….she just takes everything to extremes with her mood swings….most women dont care this one with her first wedding attempted to declare a YEAR of nothing but her wedding, (ie no one was supposed to get engaged, pregnant move across country…ect) shes nuts…honestly….but hey, ya cant pick family can ya? so unless your Future Sister-In-Law is slightly off her rocker like my sister, i doubt shell care much…

  • Wedding: November 1999

I actually have a pretty relevant timeline story haha…

We were texting at work / joking around and I said “don’t eff with a waiting bee” and he asked what that was, so I explained, he laughed and loved it and said “if I don’t propose by my birthday (13th Feb) then you can nag me every day”

A lot sooner than I thought πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

I also promised him I would not mention anything until then – so I have to shut it up for real πŸ˜€

Hoping to have the timeline talk soon enough. Still haven’t had it.

I’m thinking he’ll propose within the next 10 months. He wants a 9-12 month engagement and would prefer to get married between the months of April-August (due to dang sports ..I kid you not). So if we were to get married in 2014 …I suppose next November would be the latest.

Good luck to all of you!

  • Wedding: June 2013 - Country Club

Roll Tide, I’m glad I didn’t go to that game… (I was very close to the stadium though!).


My Fiance told me that he would propose to me before our five year anniversary… and he proposed in September, which was a couple months before our 3 year anniversary. Silly guy. πŸ™‚

  • Wedding: May 2013

My timeline is semi-hammered out, as in SO has not given me a specific “definitely before this date” statement.  our timeline has everything to do with a home purchase.  SO wants to buy a home with me which I will not do until we are at least engaged.  I know as well this is the last time he wants to sign a lease, and he knows enough about the home buying process to know we need to get it moving well before the end of the next lease.  I like this general timeline but it gives me the confidence that it will happen soon but he still gets to surprise me like he wants.

I have a timeline, although one that is a little fuzzy. πŸ™‚ SO and I had talked more honestly about rings/etc around 1 year mark. After a few tries to be sneaky and ask without my knowing, he asked me to get my ring size so I could tell him and forget about it (as if that would be possible!) and he could surprise me.

Meanwhile, we know the month we’d want to get married, I told him I’d like to have next summer and a year to plan it, so at latest I’d think June. Although we are really in full force trying to buy a house before my lease ends in April and I more than once said I’d really prefer being engaged before that, so – we’ll see! I’ll be happy if it’s by May – although that doesn’t make it easier that I have no idea!
