We talked it out and BF gets that I don’t want a legal marriage followed later by a sacred ceremony/wedding. All at once is what works for me. He is very sweet and very loving, and felt awful that he was hurting me by suggesting we get married by degrees.
I had been saving a new dress and accessories for the courthouse ceremony, but now I have other plans for the outfit. I am going to tell him that, when he is ready to propose, I want him to invite me to dinner at our favorite NICE restaurant and ask me to wear the new dress. I would like him to propose sometime during the evening and have dessert out at our favorite place. He is quiet so not one to propose in a dramatic way. I just want us to have a nice evening.
This may sound like I’m thinking it out too much, but he is, like I said, a quiet and private guy so I figure laying out the blueprint for a lovely evening may make it easier for him.
Thanks for all your support, bees!
