- Wedding: February 2013
@steelframe: Aw that’s beyond cute! I know it was hard for you because I’ve been there but to have such a supportive SO like that! Sooo cute!! I loved when he said I wish it would be now and you said he was in tears! Ugh my heart!!
I would tell SO to call the jewler and say listen your taking way to long and I would like it by X date , you have broken timelines and I am expecting to propose soon and you keep making me have to push it off. ( Something to those lines lol)
What a sweet man! 🙂
I agree that he should give the jeweler a timeline. He paid for it, this is his moment, she shouldn’t be dicking around and not providing him with the ring that he is entitled to. If I was him, I would have a few strong, but not overly rude words with her.
Hope everything works out soon so that you and your SO can be planning with a ring! 🙂
Gotta tell you I LOL’d at his stretching! Sorry the jeweler is being sucky! At least you know it is coming sooo soon and this’ll just be a super cute, funny story to tell your kids (if you wanna have em!)
Thank you ladies for your support.
SO went to the store and turns out the artist was on vacation. She is supposed to be back today and he’s going to track her down. He feels bad, like he’s letting me down and I’m trying to be supportive of him. I know he is a really, really wonderful man and I’m lucky to have him.
But I still hate waiting!
@steelframe: Hi hi, i thought the trying to look sexy was awesome, good for you. I’ve been working on my face skin , clearing it up & tryingto grow my hair lol. i know it sounds crazy but i want longer hair for my wedding so ina weird way I’m hoping he’ll wait til 2013 or later lol. It super sucks about the ring & the timeline for the ring. I doubt it’s intentional. Chin up & know that your proposal will be amazing & feel great!!
Thanks, Alaric. Good luck on growing out your hair. I’m sure you’ll have plenty of time to get it looking as fabulous as you imagine!
I just found out it is going to be at least another 3 weeks for the ring. It’s hard because I know I’m lucky to know it is coming but I have a lot of stress associated with the whole waiting process. Like, I want to talk to my dad and grandpa about possibly helping with the wedding costs, but I would like to wait until we are actually engaged before I initiate those conversations. I don’t see my family very much and I want to talk to my dad in person to tell him about the engagement and talk about budget. It doesn’t help that we’re shooting for a late January/ early February wedding, due to the fact that two of SO’s siblings are getting married next year and taking up three months of the year between them.
I know that seems like a short timeline but I’m 31 and want to start a family soon, and don’t want to wait any longer.
Man, I feel so whiny writing all this out. I know it will end up fabulous, I just have to be patient.
Thanks for listening Bees!
So I guess I was confused. You arent engaged but have a date set for next January? And you thought he was going to propose by the end of the month, but he didn’t. Did he tell you he was going to propose by the end of the month? If he did, then I am also confused about the part where he says that he doesn’t want to tell you enything about it.
With that said, as confused as i was, the strethcing out the ol’ muscles about made me fall out of chair laughing. lol Sorry. I am sure you were diapointed, but you have to admit, that is kind of funny.
Just relax and when it happens, it will be great. You too already obviously know that you want to be together, so really this is just a minor piece of the puzzle. Don’t put too much pressure on the situation and let yourself be surprised.
We’re not engaged but want to get married in Jan or Feb. I have been having minor freakouts about waiting and asked him for a time that we’d be engaged by and he said by the end of August. That is no longer the case because the ring is not finished and he wants to propose with the ring. He doesn’t want to tell me anything more and feels like some of the surprise is gone already because I know he is having a ring made but I have no idea of how or when exactly he is going to propose or what the ring looks like.
And you’re right, the whole non-proposal weekend is really hilarious in retrospect (and while it was happening!) In my mind it plays like a sitcom.
Thanks for the advice. I really am trying to let go and just enjoy myself.
@steelframe: I hope you are able to. I would hate for you to miss out on enjoying the ride due to the stress and the expectation of it all. Trust me I am a high strung person as well and sometimes, calming down is just out of the question. lol. Hope that everything goes smoothly for you from here on out.
