Welcome to the waiting boards! I’m the opposite. I spend most of my time here.

I’m doing pretty well. I had a great day with my SO yesterday and it just validated everything. I can’t wait to marry him 🙂 He let it slip that he will ask me this Spring, so not too much longer for me. 

How are you doing?

@Peaceoutboyscout:  things are good on my end. Calmly waiting and six months or so to go.  SO told me the other day he is increasing my ring budget! I told him he didn’t have to and I would be happy with ANYTHING. So I guess we’ll see what happens. I spent my time everywhere! Too much time on the waiting boards make me depressed

how are you??

@Peaceoutboyscout:  yay! Do you have an idea of when (month wise) that your SO will propose? 🙂 Spring is a wonderful time to get engaged in my opinion.

My SO is picking out the ring all by himself. There are a few different styles I like basically something that looks somewhat vintage and probably three stone. There is a setting on James Allen that I LOVE, but I don’t want to ruin ring shopping for SO so I’ve been quiet he he.

@Peaceoutboyscout:  Hey you!!  Haven’t seen you around here for a while Wink

LOL you are not alone on visting the ring and dress boards.  Most days I REALLY enjoy the ring and dress boards.  It’s nice because you can go to pintrest, make your favorite dream dress boards and then see how they look IRL on people, and the same with the ring boards too Smile

Only on my impatient/bad do I have to avoid them.

PS my favorite non waiting board has to be the recap board, it’s got it all!!  Pics of the dress, the bridal party, the rings, the DIY’s and elegant setups…just lovely, and GREAT for getting ideas going for our own special day!!

@prettyinpink11:  OMG my SO is ring shopping all by himself too!  I ALMOST said something to him today about my anxiety of it all (I hope I love it!  I have to wear it for life! etc etc), but I’m staying strong because it’s such a big deal to him!!

@veryberry13:  omg seriously! the anxiety is awful! I feel like men know NOTHING about rings or diamonds. I made it very clear to my SO about where to go: James allen, diamonds by lauren or a private jeweler! lol I would hate for him to spend his money at Zales and get something overpriced for the quality. Do you know what style your SO likes? Ultimately, they usually choose whatever they like (my SO LOVES three stone because thats what his mom has) lol

@prettyinpink11:  My SO has given me a LOT of heart jewelery…I don’t HATE heart jewelery but…I seriously cringe when I think of the possibility of getting a heart shaped ering lol.  Yell Maybe I’ll be so happy to finally be getting engaged that I won’t care?!?  Last time that we chatted about it, SO told me if I didn’t like it I could take it back, but I would feel like such a bad person you know?!

@Peaceoutboyscout:  WOW WOW WOW!  What a great comment, I have NO idea what sort of ring that my FMIL has but I will def be checking out her ring over Xmas which is when we are going to be seeing them next!!!!!

And I do go through obsessions over the recap board haha!!!  I get so down on the ‘slow wedding’ weeks where either everyone must be honeymooning or they are waiting to post their pro pics lol.  I REALLY love it when people prove that they were able to pull off a wedding for 5-10k (or less) and you can see what a wonderful day they were able to have!!  I think I’ve said it before, but I’ve opened a wedding savings account and oh boy saving up is SLOW.  Obviously I’m looking to have a much cheaper wedding because of it!!
