- Wedding: March 2013
Sorry, I posted this in the wrong place earlier, I am still new at this
The last post I did was about a not-so-perfect holiday because the pressue was unbelievable from family about getting married to my SO of alomst 3 years. I was so happy to get the holidays over because it made me pretty depressed about not getting a proposal. But, I have an update!
Last weekend we were on our way to dinner and out of the blue he mentions this wedding set that his friend bought for his wife as an upgrade ring that he was trying to sell. She has only worn it for 3 days, then never wore it again (they broke up). Anyways, SO was talking about it and how me might try to buy it and sell it. I was thinking, hello?, I could wear that…But then he started talking about how it should be something that is sentimental that you pick out for your SO.
Fast forward to last night…we were talking about my friends wedding. She was going to get married this year, but post poned it to next year so they could do a sandals wedding in Jamaica. All we have to do is pay for the plane tickets and EVERYTHING else is paid for. A little while later he was like, so who all is going? How much are the tickets? Blah, blah, then I told him we should get married there. He goes, at the same time? Then that got us talking about getting married, which was a surprisingly good conversation.
This morning I got a call from him as soon as a I got to work. He said he has been seeing billboards and commercials about a bridal expo this weekend and figured me and my friend that is getting married would have fun there. He told me all the details about it and was encouraging me to go. They are giving away honeymoons, dresses, discounts on venues, everything. Ahhh, I’m excited!! I finally feel like he is getting more an more comfortable talking about marriage. I would have never thought in a million years he would be encouraging me to go look at wedding things! This will be so perfect, because then it will be my excuse to talk about future wedding plans for us! 🙂
