- Wedding: July 2013
This is my first post to the Bee, and I just had to start off by bragging about my fiancee’s brilliant proposal!
We’ve only been together for six months, but we’ve known since our first night together that we only wanted to be with each other. We had talked about getting married, even looked at rings and figured out what size I wore, but he kept telling me I was going to have to wait a few more months.
Much to my surprise, I came home from work on our six month anniversary, expecting to celebrate my roommate’s birthday. When I walked in the front door, the hallway was lit with candles, and there he was down on one knee, asking me to marry him. The moment I said yes, all the lights came on, and a stream of our friends came out to congratulate us! He had planned a huge surprise party, and even had everyone dressed up for the occasion!
The best part of the whole thing was that he was thoughtful enough to invite my mom, who I’m very close with, and she had been hiding on the staircase videotaping the whole thing. From the moment I walked through the door, to the first few minutes of celebration, everything is caught on video to relive. 🙂 Then I was whisked upstairs to change into a dress bought by my Maid/Matron of Honor for the occasion, and to have my hair done so I could properly enjoy the party.
I couldn’t have dreamt of a better proposal and I’m already so excited to begin the planning process!
