We just booked our venue today which means we have a date and a..,, wedding to plan!!!! 😀
I decided to prepare a little post card for my brother who’s in the military and needs to make plans waaay ahead. Since he lives far away, he was the second person to know. Then it ocurred to me to Skype my sister and tape her on Skype as I presented the post card. The reaction and video I got is so priceless! That gave me the idea to tell everyone else I could on Skype and tape their reactions to make a compilation and edit a video to play it in the wedding! Lol. I found it a very special thing as the reactions are so awesome and genuine, pure happiness for me and my… Future husband!!!
He asked not to post onour personal social media (it’s ok here because there’s no last names etc) so when he comes back from Europe in about a month he can make something special and givee the ring. I certainly don’t want to take that from him. That is his part and he is excited about whatever he has in mind. Whatever it is, it will be fine. All I care is I am marrying the man I love! A man I trust to be the father of my kids! A partner I feel confident enough to have high hopes of living a lifetime with him and with the usual adjustments due to life’s curve balls, still carry on with our life plan!

And my niece just told me she’s getting married too! Four months before me which means we’ll be wedding planning at the same time and doing a lot of projects together!!! My niece is only 5 years younger than me so it will be lots of fun I think! This is definitely a better time for our family
You can tell I can’t handle the excitment when I’m posting on my own thread that has no other comments LOL

thank you! And I’m sorry. I don’t know how it works but I think I hit flag by accident on your post 🙁 . Hyperactive fingers on an Iphone.
Yes!!! Since we haven’t gone the traditional route and I don’t have a ring yet, this definitely made the OMG this is happening impact! This and him having me log onto Skype for a conference with his family that’s spread all over the world to tell them the news on his birthday. His idea. Super special Moment. And me taping my sister’s reaction too was priceless. Today I’ve been watching the clip and I think what I love is watching how amazing it is when you capture people completely off guard and they are truly surprised and happy!
