I am not officially engaged yet since I am in an LDR, but I know when it’s going to happen – this October when my SO comes to visit again!
Anyway, since we want to get married in June and have less than a year, I have a venue already! The deposit is not paid yet, but I am arranging things at a rustic golf resort and country club in southern AZ in a cooler location! There are lots of fields, trees, and water for great views and a beautiful outdoor ceremony, a southwest-y patio, covered patio, BBQ pit for the caterer to cook steaks to order. The venue also does bridal packages to include spa services the day of, the whole nine yards.
I am so excited! I am not telling anyone but family about my plans since the engagement is still unofficial, so I had to get online and tell someone! 10 months until the wedding, and the planning is getting started! I just can’t wait until he comes in October so it can be official, then I can be more out in the open with my plans!

Yay for you!!
Remember, a ring doesn’t make things official. His asking to marry you & you accepting is what makes it official! 🙂
Congrats again! Super happy for you!

I totally feel ya, I am not officially engaged yet, but my guy had me try on rings and pick out my favs a few months ago, so I know it’s gona happen sometime soon cuz we talk about marriage/wedding stuff all the time!! I already have my ideas started cuz I know it will be a lot of work. we will have a small budget, we have no family to help, so I plan on totally DIYing everything I can!! Good for you for taking initiative so you are not as stressed when the time comes

Same predicament – LDR and the ring coming when next we see eachother, but meanwhile venue secured, ceremony planned, invitation list settled…

- Wedding: October 2012 - Adrianna Hill Grand Ballroom
That’s what we did too! We picked our venue before we got engaged, knowing that we were definitely getting married! It was so worth it to check one thing off our list before getting engaged! Keep us posted on the coming engagement!

I am in the exact same situation! We have a venue for ceremony/reception, photographer, videographer and planner…..and we are not “officially” engaged. I know he is asking sometime this fall (my hope is in September but he says November), but he asked my father in April and we have been planning ever since. I haven’t dare to change my FB status to engaged but all of my close family and friends consider us practically engaged. Good luck to you and your soon to be fiance!

I did the same thing. My Fiance is in Afghanistan and when he first deployed he told me to plan my wedding to keep my mind off of things. So I didn’t have the ring and official proposal until 2 weeks ago when he was home for leave, but had the venue 4 months ago!

The venue is all set and booked, and now I have about 1746372926 other things to do ….
Oh, and he is coming in a week to visit! This is THE visit when the proposal will happen at some point! I can’t wait to see him!
