Hello! I’m new here…my fiance and I got engaged on November 16, 2013 and we have set a date for November 15, 2014!
This is us!
We got engaged at the CN Tower in Toronto…here is my beautiful sapphire ring!
For our venue we’ve chosen the beautiful Gem Theatre in Downtown Detroit.
And recently I found my dress! I knew that I didn’t want a strapless gown and that I loved illusion necklines, lace, and the fit & flare silhouette. The third dress I tried on had all of the above and I completely fell in love! Don’t mind the funky-looking back…the sample was way too big so I had pillows stuffed down my back!
This seems like a really nice and positive community and I’m really looking forward to reading and posting!

Welcome! I love the ring.
Many years ago I witnessed a proposal on the glass floor in the CN Tower (the whole floor is actually glass, they just covered most of it cause people wouldn’t step off the elevator). It was the one and only time I’ve been up there, haha.

@musical-lady: Too funny! It seems to be a popular spot to pop the question – and rightly so as it’s a breath-taking view. A girl I work with told me that her husband actually proposed to her there almost ten years ago. Apparently it was a bit un-planned…my fiance just carried the ring around with him during our weekend trip and waited for the right moment!

Thank you so much for all the kind words!
@Brace2014: Yes, we are planning on having our ceremony on the stage. 🙂 We will also be having the reception in the theatre (they flip the room during the cocktail hour which will be in the lobby). The venue said that many weddings have their bride/groom or head tables on the stage during the reception, but that feels like a little too much attention on me while I’m eating! 😛
