Oh my! I would die if I lost any! Thankfully setting has a lifetime warranty and the jeweler paid for the first year of insurance through Jewelers Mutual. Just hope we never have to use it!
We’ve been dating for 2 years and 4 months.

No, I don’t work. But, lol, I’m not all that crafty so the DIY would have to be super simple! I really would like to have a wedding at home so all of our friends and family could attend. I was thinking at the country club in the next town over from ours. It was built in the 1920s and it has an amazing ballroom. The ceremony location is going to be difficult though. Neither one of us attend church and all of the churches around home are, how do I say this, ugly. LOL But seriously, they either have red carpeting, or green or blue pew cushions. Ick…I don’t understand why they don’t decorate churches in neutral colors. As if that’s not bad enough very few have center aisles and that’s the one thing I want. We might see if we could convert the dining area of the country club into the ceremony site. I dunno, these are all just early ideas.

What part of Arkansas are you in? Eureka Springs has a GORGEOUS hotel that reminds me of the book the Great Gatsby.. It’s the Crescent Hotel. I always gasp when I see pictures of it. Trust me I wasn’t very DIY savvy either until I saw the prices some people were trying to charge my clients!! Then I was like um HECK NO I can do that!! And I’m actually pretty good at it lol!

Wait when you say home do you mean Oklahoma? Or home where you are now? I think that the town over from yours would be an awesome place because most of your family and friends are there with you to celebrate and would appreciate that.

Right now we’re in Searcy, which is about 45 miles north of Little Rock. I think in Feb we’ll be close to Hot Springs, which I heard is pretty awesome. I had thought about getting married in Arkansas a while back….I had seen pics of a glass chapel. But I can’t remember if it was in Hot Springs or Eureka Springs. But, yes home is Oklahoma.

I am from Memphis so I am vaguely familiar with the area. Ohhh a glass chapel would be stunning especially in the fall (which would give you enough time to plan!)
eta Here’s the glass chapel. It is the Thorncrown Chapel and is stunning

WOW, congrats! Your ring is gorgeous, but then I’m a little biased bc we literally have the exact same ring (1 and a third carat round center stone on a 3/4 pave band)! Love it, great taste 🙂 Enjoy!

It’s gorgeous! I’m partial to that band, since it’s similar to mine. 😉 But the ring is stunning! Congrats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

That is BEAUTIFUL! And what a sweet and funny proposal; sounds like he was a little nervous and alot excited! You *could* plan a wedding in that timeframe, for real. You just have to get moving! My boyfriend and I are going to have a relatively short engagement but we’re just running with it and are going to be deadly with decisions (it helps that I have alot of the planning done already). Good luck!!! And best wishes!
