- Wedding: March 2014
I’m still pretty new to the bee, and just started nestling in on the waiting board a little while ago. Yesterday, we hosted brunch for our Mothers and some of the boyfriend’s family. We were having a really lovely day. After the food, we passed out gifts for all of the Moms. After they opened them my boyfriend said that we had one more gift for all of the Mothers.
*pause* I’m thinking to myself, what else did he buy? Are we finally going to have mimosas? (His brother was super late showing up with the champagne he was supposed to bring, and had just arrived)
Before I could catch my breath, he was down on one knee in front of our families and very simply said “Will you marry me?” with a gorgeous ring in his hand.
I was so stunned, and genuinely shocked and surprised that I was speechless (this NEVER happens to me) I just cried & cried, and hugged him and nodded & nodded. Finally, everyone is like say yes. So, I said YES!!
Looking back, I see now why he wouldn’t let the Moms open gifts sooner. Everytime they tried to take a peek he almost snapped on them, “It’s NOT time for gifts yet, OK?!?” lol. I was like hostile, much?
I couldn’t be happier to know that almost five years later (four depending on who you ask), I am finally marrying the love of my life. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Many thanks to you, Bees!
