After being together for over 2 years, my boyfriend and I have recently become engaged! There was no “proposal.” Both of us are relatively unconventional, anyway. We just had a conversation that went something like this:
Him: “I want to marry you.”
Me: “I want to marry you, too.” (Duh, we’ve talked about this before.)
Him: “No, I mean like, lets plan our wedding.”
Me: “Really? Don’t kid around, because we’re going to be really busy!”
Him: “Yeah, I’m serious. We need to do this.”
From then on, he was looking at engagement rings online and I was completely involved in the decision. We ended up going through a big-name diamond company. The customer service could have been much better (we should be getting the ring tomorrow, nearly a week after it was supposed to be here!), but we finally have the delivery confirmation 🙂 It’s been stressful for both of us, because he spent so much money (diamonds are just ridiculous). I couldn’t care less about what a silly ring is worth, but it’s such a wonderful symbol that we’re both excited to share!
We’ve booked an awesome venue! They have a huge space with fantastic lighting, they take care of the custom decorations, we already have a ceremony officiant, DJ, and photographer. Our planner though this venue cares immensly about us as individuals, and everyone has been so helpful! Less than 2 weeks after announcing our engagement, and only 5 months to plan until our date, we’ve made amazing progress!! Next will be picking our caterer and professional baker. It’s just all very exciting and I felt like I wanted to share 🙂
We’re getting married!!!
