Hey everyone. I am new here! My name is Sarah and my FI and I are getting married 10.13.12. We have technically been engaged for awhile, but are just now getting started on planning because of some past financial problems. However, we haven’t exactly told anyone because when we got engaged we didn’t have money for a ring, and now that things are getting better we are shopping around for rings. I KNOW, wedding is coming up quickly! I guess I am afraid to tell people without having a ring…is that stupid?

Hi and welcome to the Hive! 😀 I think, if you feel like sharing it with family and friends and you guys are shopping around for a ring, you can simply say that you guys haven’t decided on a ring yet and that your are still looking 🙂

Welcome to the Hive! I don’t thing you are stupid for not telling anyone. I think that it is only natural to proclaim your engagement and throw your left hand out with glee, and the fact that you want that just shows how excited you are to be engaged. Congrats on you engagement!
You should stop by the Ocober 2012 boards and I hope that you will join us for the post-a-thon this coming Tuesday. Post-a-thons are a great time and you really get to get a great feel for the Hive!

Welcome and congratulations!
I agree, I would tell people and also let them know you’re still ring shopping. Your family and friends will be happy for you either way!
