We went ring shopping Saturday….found an excellent ring with amethest center and two side diamonds. We’re having it made in white gold and he will pick it up next Sunday. (about $300)
Today I went to the thrift store, as I’d done a few times. I got a dress for $30.
I’m soooo excited…it needs some taloring at the top (I think I’m far less endowed than the previous owner) but otherwise fits very comfortably.

that is what we did we got rings and dress then you can plan it all around that! With out the dress you can’t plan the wedding like colors or flowers. No i have both it has a great pressure off the shoulders. it was supposed to be elopement now it is about 15 ppl there now. I am just going with the flow. Happy planning!

@nafarey7: Haha it’s more to spring everything on our parents at once since we aren’t inviting the extended family…both because of size and to control the alcoholic tendencies.
My mom got 2 weddings already….but they were both my brothers….his mom got a big wedding last year (his sister) so there is no reason to throw a big hubabaloo.
The official ring-included proposal in October….by then we will anounce church, venue, approx date and that we’re only having parents, grandparents, sibilings and 3 friends each.
