- Wedding: January 2015
Oh bees, I have to share with you:
VERY long backstory short; I was with a guy 12 years, and we were meant to get married 2 years ago in NYC, but he cancelled weeks before the wedding.
Back to today, I got a expiration notification from ESTA which bought back loads of emotional memories and I disclosed to my SO that I felt life was passing me by, and I was super happy with him, but wished we’d met sooner, because I’d expected to be married with a baby now. And felt we’d had time stolen from us and I worry about my fertility
We had a great talk and he said he felt the same way and maybe we should consider TTC before the wedding but timing it so we were conception-12 weeks at the time of the wedding. (He is adamant he wants to be married before we have a child, but is happy to conceive pre-wedding) Which bought us on to the time of year we wanted to get married and we both agreed we didn’t want to pay peak prices. So he suggested our anniversary, but that’s 28 Dec. Which its possible, but not hugely practical for us (we both work in healthcare so getting time off would be hard) and then he suggested the date of our first kiss – so that our first kiss as man and wife would coincide with the date of our very first kiss.
So our date is set : 9th January 2015!!!!!
He’s in the process of having my ring custom made, and wants to wait until she arrives to make it official. But he did say “we have less than a year – better start planning!” and we’re going to look at venues online at the weekend!! Eep! We’re unofficially engaged bees!!!!
