- Wedding: October 2013
I have been lurking around on the waiting boards for months, but this is the first time I’ve actually posted anything … but he proposed! Took me completely by surprise, I thought I was going to be waiting waaaay longer.
I am super thrilled, but honestly, not that excited about wedding planning yet. I wish he’d proposed 6 months ago (when he got the ring, omg how did he keep that a secret for so long?!) because we would really like to get married in 2013.
Is there any way to make that happen? I’m in Portland, but I am also considering getting married up by my parents in rural Washington (probably that will be way too inconvenient). My Fiance thinks we should get married in summer, hahaha. Can I plan a wedding between now and next October? Someone talk me down!
We spent a bunch of yesterday on the phone with family … I’ve been telling everyone I wasn’t going to start planning until next week … but I think I need to get the budget and guest list together this week at least. Ack!
I will post some ring porn for you all once I figure out how. And I am sure I will have fun family stories coming up … when the Fiance told his mom, the first thing she said was “did you ask her DAD?”, which is sooo not what I or my father would appreciate. She can be surprisingly conservative sometimes – she also said to my FI’s sister, “I guess now raindropsoup can lose her virginity and they can have a baby.” FMIL, pleeease don’t talk about my sex life! Gah!
Anyway, hi all, sorry I’m a little incoherent! Advice? 🙂
