My two best friends are two girls that I have been friends with since middle school. The 3 of us were always attached at the hip and one was never seen without the other two. Unfortunately we have all spread out and the 3 of us haven’t been in the same place in a while. We all managed to come back to our hometown this weekend and I just had the most relaxing weekend EVER. We had sleepovers and giggled under the covers like we were 15 again. It was seriouly therapeutic and just what I needed!
We were talking about our futures and I *may* have let it slip that my boy and I are getting engaged soon. Actually, I *may* have let it slip that he already bought the ring and is planning on proposing by the end of the month.
Gah, I know… I’m awful, but these are my BEST friends I couldn’t keep it from them! So we kiiiiinda spent the rest of the weekend planning. OH EM GEE. Honestly I wasn’t sure how they were going to react. I mean, I know they love me and they love him, but I’m the first to get engaged so I wasn’t sure what it would be like.
Let’s just say that I am so totally blessed to have not one, but two awesome MOHs. They literally cannot wait to start planning this wedding with me and I could not be happier.
They made me SWEAR to call the second he proposes…. Now if I could just get him off his butt and on one knee! There’s only 15 days left in August and I’m getting so impatiet!!!!

hehe I dont think there is anything really wrong with telling your best friends about your plans!
There is nothing better knowing that those closest to you approve of what you are doing and love your partner just as much!

Oh dear. That’s fantastic that you’re so positive that it’s going to happen! I think that if they were anything but happy for you they didn’t deserve the spot you’re going to give them in the wedding.

That is a hard thing to keep from friends! I know that I would have people ask me when my SO was proposing, and I gave away more than I intended. I said that he would propose by the end of the summer. I was afraid that when I would tell people, they wouldn’t be very excited, or they would say, “It’s about time,” and that’s all.
However, when he did propose and we told our friends and family, they were still just as excited as they would have been if I said nothing! At some point, I think they had all realized that we had been together for so long, it was inevitable. So, hopefully that is a little reassuring!
Good luck! You’ve made it halfway through the month! Waiting is so annoying!

@CupcakeLove: It’s such a good feeling! I really was afraid they were going to tell me I was too young or something, but dang we’ve been together for 5 years, let’s get a move on!
@KaitlinHudson: So true!! I always knew that they would be my MOHs but it just made me so much more excited for it!
@keepsmiling19: Yea I deff gave away more than intended, but ack I got excited! I’m glad to hear that your family and friends were still excited… I was worried about spoiling the moment, but honestly they are the only 2 people I’ve told. I think I can hold it in from everyone else for another 2 weeks!
My boy told my mom, but she doesn’t know that I know! Haha, she did a very good job covering up saying things like “ah my daughter is never getting marrrrrried.” (which she says everytime she talks to me anyways.)

@bells: Yea I totally see where you’re coming from… BUT the only reason I finally told my friends is because a) he has the ring and b) he has told me countless times that he is going to propose by the end of the month. It wasn’t a vague “at the end of the summer” thing, it was at the end of August specifically. I figure with only 2 weeks left it’s okay to start telling my uber close friends. 🙂 Plus, honestly… I just couldn’t keep it a secret any longer… I’m really bad at that!

I understand where you’re coming from! You’re close to them and it would be hard to keep the secret.
However, the flip side is they are going to be asking you constantly now…which could be really annoying if he doesn’t propose right away. Which is sounds like he will. God willing. My fingers are crossed for you.

I think that since you told them you’d let them know right away when it happens, they’ll just be allies in your waiting. The good part about having your best friends know is that you can talk about details with them and have friends to bounce wedding ideas off of. Yea, they’re not going to be shocked when you tell them, but I guarantee they will still be just as excited for you. Here’s to hoping you can tell everyone soon!

Its fine I’d probably do the same. Besides its coming soon, so its fun to get all excited with friends.

Congrats!!! 🙂 There is nothing wrong in being excited and wanting to share that excitement with your closest friends >.<. Honestly, I think every girl that knows that a proposal is coming ‘spills the beans’, lol.
