So while I still don’t have my ring yet, things are going really well and I just feel so excited. I posted a few weeks ago that we had decided on a date, booked a venue, but that it didn’t feel real yet because the proposal was missing. I felt like a fraud meeting with vendors, making plans, etc. without the ring. But when he explained to me that it was a financial thing and he was paying for the whole ring in cash — well, I felt a lot better! Because he assured me it would be coming soon — before we go home in March to visit my family.
He also said that I could go ahead and start planning. So this week I met with an amazing photographer and SO said he thought we should book him. I even talked to my mom about it and she is totally on board! She is going to put down the $800 deposit for us to secure the photographer. And then today, I found out that she and my boyfriend talked on the phone tonight for 20 minutes! And she hinted to me that the ring has been purchased! She even said she is starting her diet tomorrow because she wants to be a hot mother of the bride and then started talking about my wedding shower! Haha
Oh yeah, and on Monday, SO told me that he put in a vacation request at work to make sure he has the day before our wedding off and then the following week off for our honeymoon.
I guess something in me has changed because even though I don’t have the ring yet, I am now just so happy and excited to be marrying the love of my life — even if I don’t get the ring until next month. And now that we have booked our venue, found a photographer, caterer and florist — I’m not worried at all about planning! I know it’s going to be fabulous. I’m just so happy that I’m marrying him. 🙂
