I wrote a post the other day about how I told my SO that being engaged was “far away” (which he said it wasnt) and I said “far away to me is 2011” and he said that he has 77 days then!
Im really hoping that by saying that he basically gave a timeline of proposing by the end of the year!?!
He told me a few weeks ago that he didnt want to actually go look at venues until we are engaged, which i completely understand (i doubt thats fun with no ring) so we have just looked online and called some places to get quotes. Well my fav place we have talked to called me on Friday saying they had a few inquiries for the same month as us and asked if i wanted to pencil in a date for next Oct…..I told her no, because we werent sure of the exact date etc. —So in passing this weekend I told my SO that she had called, he asked about what she said…and i told him everything, and that I told her not to worry about it and he says “Well, we should just go on over there and look at it since we want this time of year anyways….”– I was shocked and asked if he was sure and he said yeah, just call and set up a time this week. I never asked any questions as to why he was all of a sudden ok with looking and not being engaged yet….What in the world?!?! Now Im confused! lol
…What do you think, Bee’s???

I think….that your guy has practicality on the mind before romance.
Kind of sweet, actually–I’d much prefer a guy actually go through the moves of finding a venue before the ring rather than have a ring for years with no move towards the practicalities of a wedding 🙂

@mispriss1215: hahaaaaaa that’s a good sign! i think it’s definitely coming, maybe he’s still saving up or just being a bit lazy but it seems like he’s interested, so why not go check em out? it’ll give you guys a chance to envision it and see each other’s perspectives on the wedding which will probably bring about some marriage talk on the car ride home ;]

I think your proposal is right around the corner. Hang in there, things can only get better (crossing my fingers).

I agree with @JennyW1. Your guy is committed to you, and plans on proposing soon. Maybe it’s just taking him longer to get everything in order than he expected. I’m sure he doesn’t want his pace to negatively impact your wedding plans. So… congrats!! Things are moving along!

Sounds great! My guy can’t hide a thing and the ring is happening in December… this past weekend we actually went to the venue we’re intending on using and although it was closed to the public – it was closed because they were setting up for a reception. It was great because he got to see how it would look with the tables, and frankly I got to see that we need to rent out the whole venue rather than half.
Go with it! I told him though we weren’t going to officially meet with the vendor until the ring has landed, but that was a personal preference of mine.

My SO sounds just like yours. He didn’t want to do anything wedding related until we had a ring but we were hoping for next October to get married. He just really didn’t understand that you need to book things a year in advance to get the venue you love…until we got a similar call. We actually ended up meeting with the vendor and booked for next October. I bet yours was thinking the same thing. And I don’t want to get your hopes up, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he does propose before the year is out. 🙂 Good luck!

@ JennyW1– Its funny you say the practicality before romance thing because he is actually a huge romantic! lol He has actually said to me before “I’m sorry I haven’t proposed yet, I’m just a romantic and I want it to be special!” Although he is also a planner he didn’t seem interested at all in actually visiting anywhere until this weekend. I have no idea if he has a ring though! Lol
@ elliestan– We talk wedding stuff ALL THE TIME…Ha, that’s why I get so frustrated! We have known for a while that we wanted to go for Oct 2011. I am calling today to make an appointment though!!! J
@ STBSchmidt– How did you guys handle going to the venue and not being “officially” engaged/not having a ring on your finger? What is weird?
The thing that was so weird is that I was so carefree with saying that I told the lady we would hold off, I was sincerely okay with it because we haven’t 100% decided on a Saturday wedding (we may go with Friday) and I have just been at peace with letting things happen as the happen…(i.e. get engaged, tell everyone, go from there and plan as needed)

Yay! Sounds like things are definitely moving the right direction! Congrats on looking at the hall. I say enjoy the fact that your SO is taking initiative. Just don’t question his motives. . .too much. Lol. 🙂
Have fun on Thursday! Let us know how it goes!
