- Wedding: May 2014
I can finally post on weddingbee!!! I’ve been lurking for months but refused to make my first post until I was engaged. I was actively hiding that I was looking at weddingbee lol. I have been with my boyfriend Fiance (oh that sounds so strange) for 5 years now. We met in college and have been dating ever since, we are now long distance and have been for the last 2 years. I am so happy that we are finally officially engaged. We’ve known that we were going to marry since year 1, but to know its official feels great! Anyway here’s my story
He came for a visit this past weekend (Friday through Tuesday). Friday night after a long day of just hanging out we were getting ready for bed. After I got out of the shower and had gotten into bed with my hair wrapped up looking like a complete mess, he comes over to my side of the bed and turns down the tv and says ” I want to talk to you”, he starts going through his speech of how much he loves me and I’m thinking OMG he’s gonna do it now? He didn’t he goes on to say he really loves me and wanted me to know that he was still serious about wanting to marry me and wanted to give me something to put on my finger to know he was serious until he got the ring he really wanted. He told me he didn’t know how long it would be until he could afford my engagement ring. In his words it was just a promise ring and hes sorry I had to wait longer than expected. So that was that, I assured him I knew he was serious and we went to bed.
The next day he suprises me with a massage and a facial. While I was getting that done he came back to our room and put rose petals on the floor, set up balloons, and had chocolate covered strawberries for me. When I walked in he played “I gotta be” by Jagged Edge in the background and said his little speech (all a blur), got down on one knee and asked “will you marry me?”. I of course said yes!!! He said the night before was just to throw me off.
So now onto the planning and waiting for the next trip.
Here’s the promise ring (sorry for the huge pics)
