- Wedding: November 2013
I am waiting until April ’13.
My cousin’s husband actually proposed on Christmas outside while out entire extended family waited inside knowing what would happen. It was fun for me, I was like 16 at the time, but I think it made it a little awkward for them because they didn’t get much time alone with us peeping through the windows outside! I’d say your aunt is a little pushy too! Chrstimas proposals don’t belong to her! I’d love a Thanksgiving or Christmas proposal because they’re such happy times!
My new internal personal waiting timeline (and hoping timeline) is for Xmas/New Years-ish, so I’m joining this thread! I had been hoping for this summer, but after a recent conversation realized even though my SO does for sure wanna marry me, he doesn’t have his ducks in order to do so quite yet. He knows that I’m antsy, and doesn’t want to make me wait too much longer, and he knows that I want to get married next spring/summer/fall. He is ok with that, but is also ok with the year AFTER that. That feels too far away for me, since I’m 29, he’s 31, and we wanna have a couple of kids, and not right away after getting married. Anyways, he just started his first real job post-graduate school yesterday! YIPEE!!! and acknowledged that although he hasn’t asked my dad yet, he knows I want him to do it, and it should be easy since he sometimes works for him and they speak professionally on the phone and via email often more than I even talk to my dad! We went to a ring store together 1x, and he has an emailed list of a few rings I like with reasons why… so now it’s the saving, planning, and ASKING! Still a lot to do, but a few months should be fine. I’m trying my hardest to stay chill until the holidays.
He is going to propose by the end of the year. I was counting on 2013, but this is better!
By December I should have a ring… We both agreed to that timeline.
We have discussed a fall wedding prob sept 2013 so I am hoping for a ring any time now so should give us enough time to plan
I knew I would be excited, but I am so happy to be as excited as I am! I can’t believe we’re already pretty much done with August and Countdown will officially be 4 months! I at least am pretty sure it will be by the end of 2012. He told me absolutely before Valentine’s Day 2013 and he knows that I’m weird and don’t like odd numbers (2013!). Last night when we were talking he mentioned he was downloading budget apps to plan out a budget for saving for our lives together and mentioned that buying a ring was putting a dent in that savings! I feel a little guilty about it, and I don’t need anything too extravagant, but I would definitely like a diamond ring!
Yup! We decided that it’d be best if we were engaged before we’re potentially considering job offers, which would be early next year. So I’m really hoping for our 5 year anniversary this fall, but thinking that it could be as late as New Year’s.
*raises hand* Me! Except it’s the end of the year plus a couple of months – February 2013. Luckily, I have my dissertation and various assignments to keep me busy but there are some days like today when I get antsy. Then I just remind myself that February will come in no time – I mean, it’s the end of August already!
I’m waiting for after-Christmas as a personal waiting timeline… but it will probably happen late-Spring 2013.
