- Wedding: May 2018
Hi everyone! I’m new to the Weddingbee boards, but not new to Weddingbee. I’ve been following the blogs for sometime now. I always thought the down-to-earth feel of each Bee’s blog was inspiring.
Well, here I am! I just got engaged a few days ago. It was very spare of the moment and very sweet. Perfect, really. Though I now have some jitters. Since it was so spontanous, he forgot to ask my dad. Now to clarify, asking my dad was really more of a formality that my dad would appreciate moreso then something I needed. So we waited to tell anyone before he was able to ask my dad. My dad was very supportive and obviously was very happy to get the call, though he shared with my FI that my mom might not feel the same way. Now I’m nervous to tell her!!
We are in a very loving and supportive relationship and we recently just moved half way across the US from our home in Philadelphia. My mom wasn’t too happy about me moving away from home, but was happy I was doing it with someone I loved. Since the move, my FI has had a hard time finding a job. We are in no means struggling, but we aren’t saving any money and this was why we are going to wait so long before planning our actual wedding. The ring I was given was actually his mom’s engagement ring, so its not like he paid for something with money that should be going towards bills. In reality the engagement was more about the sentament then anything else… but these would be all of the reasons she will think our engagement is a bad idea. so I’m at a loss for what to do…
Was anyone else nervous to tell their parents about their engagement? I know eventually my mom will be happy for us, and will be supportive of our decision to wait for the wedding, but I’m afraid of what she’ll actually say.
