SO and I had a really good talk yesterday in which he told me that I could start researching venues and finding out how much they cost.
Only catch is, I can’t tell him about anything I find until we actually get engaged. But I’m okay with that. I’m just happy that I can start looking into venues with his permission!
Of course, this will all be done online. We won’t actually go look at any venues or book anything until we get engaged. I just want to know how much money to budget for which is why I’m just gonna email venues to find out the pricing.
Oh and he told me that he has been thinking about wedding stuff too. For instance, he went and picked up a pamphlet from our favorite Mexican restaurant. What is the pamphlet about? Catering!
He was thinking about having them cater for us! And he did this ENTIRELY on his own!
I know that in the grand scheme of things, it’s not a big deal. But it’s just exciting for me because he’s actually thinking about our wedding! Now all that’s left for him to do is actually propose lol. 🙂

It IS a big deal – he’s expressing his interest in a wedding, that’s huge! He is clearly getting ready to take the next step. Exciting!
Enjoy your pre-planning 🙂

@LadyBlackheart: I think this is totally exciting! It means (obviously) that he’s seeing marriage as a certainty, not a maybe. My SO always tells me to cool it on the researching venues/logistical parts of a wedding until we’re officially engaged, but I’m a natural planner which makes things difficult.

Nope :(. Lol, he thinks the proposal should be a complete surprise. I do have a feeling that it will happen this year. Just not sure when!

That’s awesome!! I too was looking at venues before getting engaged! It felt kinda weird but it was nice to be ahead of the game after finally getting engaged. I’m impressed he was looking into catering on his own! Sounds like you got a good one 🙂

@LadyBlackheart: It’s the same for us. We’ve been doing that stuff even though he hasn’t officially proposed. He even wants me to start really planning but I tell him I will not do it ubtil he gives me the ring. Lol. We even went to a wedding show yesterday to get tips! It’s exciting 🙂
