Buzzing bee

Purling:  Welcome! I joined the bee when I was waiting. My SO and I have been together for 6 years, and it was kind of the same thing. I was very happy just living together and then all the sudden I was overwhelmed with the desire to get engaged and married. I let my guy know, and he asked about rings too. I sent him pictures of some styles I liked. I think within three months of me letting him know I was ready he proposed. We’re getting married this summer!

When I was “waiting” it really helped to post and read on the bee, and when FI was out of the house I’d watch say yes to the dress type shows. For some reason this helped. Now that he has proposed I don’t really look at wedding stuff as much, which is weird, but it definitely helped distract me. I also didn’t talk about it endlessly with him, I let him know that I was ready, and then I just waited. You sound like you’ve got a good guy, I doubt you’ll have to wait long 🙂 

Also, just my two cents, think about estate rings (used, antique, vintage, etc.). You can get a much nicer ring for a lot less money (I sold fine jewelry for years). You guys are young so I’m assuming you probably don’t want to spend a crazy amount, it’s a nice way to get the ring you want without straining yourself financially.

Welcome! And welcome to the waiting game 🙂 Have you looked into diamond alternatives or are you set on a diamond? Price and style wise, moissanites are a new popular alternate. Plus white sapphires and colored stones.

Moissaniteco.com and Shubach’s for moissanites 🙂
