- Wedding: June 2013
We’ve talked about marriage, we’re going to get married, but it isn’t “offical” until the ring and proposal. He’s getting the ring custom made so I have to wait for that! At first we went ring shopping, I was going to pick it out.. but then I got frustrated with indecision so I gave up and told him to pick one out himself that he loves. I know I’ll love it if it comes from his heart. He turned to his favourite aunt and she actually gave him her old wedding band to get melted down and set him up with the goldsmith she used for her second ring. So generous of her! Now they’re figuring it out together, and I’m very specifically not asking questions because I looooooveeee the idea of being surprised! It’s also exciting because now it will be much cheaper to get the ring which = bigger nicer stone haha. It will be a sapphire stone because I’d decided that much before giving up and he really loves that idea as well (of course he does, it’s a fraction of the price of a diamond!)
So now I just have to sit and wait for the ring to be made. I know he’ll propose as soon as possible, he’s more impatient than me. I’ve let slip to a few close friends that it’s coming, and a few international friends just to give them as much time as possible to plan if they want to come to the wedding. He sort of let slip to his sister when we were all drinking but she hasn’t brought it up again so she might not even remember. It’s so hard to keep this in!! I just want it to be official already!!
