@Kant: Haha, that happened to me. Except my folder was called “Wedge”. It actually wound up being a good thing, because it get all the awkwardness out of the way and opened up conversation about the subject. A little embarrassing at the time, though, yeah.

@Kant: Hahaha, no you’re not the only one who does stuff like that. I keep another ‘spare’ window open when I’m on WB and looking at wedding porn, too! And my SO and I ‘fake creep’ on each other, too! AND, he ‘caught’ me on WB the other night, lol! But thank God, I was scrolled down past the giant bride and the screen was just showing the middle of a massive thread I was reading through, lol. Of course the obligatory wedding invites/favors ads were on the right, and he did linger a little bit, but he didn’t say anything, thank goodness. I totally played it off and didn’t act weird or say anything, and neither did he 🙂

Woah! I did this too! 

I started looking at wedding blogs long before FI and I actually started looking at rings or getting engaged….. I just sort of stumbled across a few while I was looking at craft blogs, honestly, and it just went from there (FYI, I get *way* more every-day inspiration from wedding blogs than craft blogs. Isn’t that strange?) 

Anyway, mine eventually moved to my bookmarks bar in Safari. The bookmark is titled “WIP” for “Wedding Idea Pages” and even after getting engaged, any time I would find something useful I would bookmark it there.

@Wonderwoman217: I totally do that too. I rarely, rarely, rarely pull up WB while my guy is home but when I do and I sense movement in the house that’s too quick to start shutting windows without looking suspicious, I drag it down past the bride so it looks like just any forum from a distance.

the only time I ever hid a wedding image BEFORE I got engaged and was caught, was when I was looking at groomsman attire.

 

His response, “no, I get to chose that!”

Everything else I showed him. We don’t hide stupid things from eachother. ;P

haha… I am not engaged or even close to it.. I just love weddings! My poor boyfriend gets to listen to all my crazy ideas! I just told him that being a wedding planner would be my dream job so he doesn’t have any pressure on him or anything.

This is too funny! But from stories I’ve heard this has actually helped a lot of couples get over any awkwardness of it 😛

I didn’t do this but you’d better believe I had a million wedding files as soon as we were engaged!

When we first moved in, I hid any and everything from SO related to weddings.  As time goes on, I get more and more ballsy.  I’ll occasionally watch wedding shows on TV when he’s in the room and throw funny shots about him buying me a ring-pop for Xmas, then V-day, and now Easter. I emailed him a pic of my dream ring in Feb, too. We’ve been together now for 4 years and living together for one of them, so it’s time.  lol.  I think as time goes on, it becomes more of an inherant “right” to put it all out there, especially if you can keep it lighthearted and entertaining. Next month I may try leaving a wedding mag around the house or something…

I love wedding shows, say yes to the dress, my fair wedding, etc. etc.  Well only a few months into dating my SO, he is over and checking out my DVR… guess what hundreds of wedding related shows saved.  Haha, so embarassing… but it had nothing to do with him, I just loved watching them.. of course now it is all about him!  🙂

@Kant: OHHH I would be so embarrassed!!!!! I would die. 

Wow, glad it went ok for you.  Sounds like a great “accident” to get things going.

Haha I used to hide that I read wedding blogs but now I don’t care. I didn’t want him to think I was being pushy but now I don’t care!
