@DAngel:  Dang!! LUCKYYYYYYY!

haha!  Mr VB and I don’t talk or dream about wedding planning together at all!!

Here’s my yesterday:

Mr VB:  What are you doing?

Me:  I’m looking at porn! *sips on a glass of wine*

Mr VB:  Oh yeah?!?!?!?  *clearly excited*

Me:  Yep!!  Ring and Dress porn!!  Wanna see?!?  It’s fun!

Mr VB:  haha NO.  

And seriously, I kept trying to hint around us looking at stuff together all night too.  I did have a small victory—We looked at the Vera Wang 2014 Spring Wedding collection that someone posted on this site under ‘dress’.  Mr VB’s response: “All these dresses look the same to me”….and then he was done.  UGH!!  

Oh well!!  I just don’t think he thinks about dresses like I do!! haha!!

PS:  This is why I had my ‘sigh another waiting day’ post haha!!

I tell him what I have planned/done. He says, “… okay”. Haha not much imput on most things but I have been day dreaming about our wedding for a year before the engagement so he knows not to mess with me!

@DAngel:  Yeah, we do.  I don’t have a smartphone, but he does.  I downloaded a pinterest app to his phone and it’s on my account.  So, quite often, I say “Go look at my wedding board and tell me what you think of the thing I just pinned!”  And if he can he obliges.  He’s not allowed to look at the wedding dresses board though.  

We’ve look at rings together (and he hinted that he wants to go shopping soon! EEE!!), but mostly “I like this type of thing” and “that shape of stone.”  I’ve showed him inspiration pictures for a lot of things and even a venue I love.  I can tell that he’ll want to be very involved in a lot more of the planning than most guys.

@veryberry13:  LOLOLOL you just made my night with “haha NO”

We are both big on the daydreaming. He told me tonight, “I want you to be my wife and the mother of my children.” 🙂 Although, I suppose I am more involved (or obsessed lol), since I have an account on this site and a couple boards on Pinterest. I wonder how active he will be when we are actually planning our wedding.

My SO and I will daydream about a lot of things — where we will live, our future kids, what their names will be, what schools they will go to, what careers they will have, where we will retire (yes, he takes it this far!). But we NEVER talk about engagement or weddings except the few times I have brought it up. Not sure how he things we’re going to get from here to there without marriage! Tongue Out

The only thing my SO won’t do is look at wedding dresses. We’ve talked about wedding locations, religion, kids, invites, photographers, BP attire, and e-rings. He is very opinionated but says he doesn’t want to be bothered by all the details. All I had to do was mention GM all wearing matching purple converse and he changed his tune pretty quickly 😛 I’ve shown him rings that I want and he has told me certain cuts and styles he refuses to buy. Now we play the waiting game 🙁
