    • Wedding: September 2015

    My almost hubby and I were dating for 9 months when he popped the question. We moved in together when we were 3 months strong.

    It was a very bold step on both our parts but we did things right. We were friends first for a few months before we dated, so it helped buld a strong foundation.

    • Wedding: February 2015 - Backyard

    My fiance initially proposed after 4.5 years, however due to family issues we decided to cancel our wedding which was scheduled for 13 months  after the proposal. We’d had a bad experience the first time planning so both of us were hesitant to try again.<br />Two months ago we were chatting on the couch and I said how nice the backyard of our new house was and how it would make a beautiful setting for a wedding. He kinda just looked at me and said ‘okay, let’s do it’.

    So now we’re FINALLY getting married in February after almost eight years together. It’s a surprise wedding as well so this is the first time I’ve told people! I think I would have gone crazy without the help of an anonymous forum!

    We had been dating for 2 years and are both 21. We fully plan to be married when we are both 22. Why wait when we know what we want?

    We got engaged about 7.5 months after we started dating, or about 6.5 months after we officially used the “boyfriend/girlfriend” label publicly!

    We dated for over 4 years before we got engaged. We wanted to make sure we were both mature and financially stable enough before getting married. Even though we are only 24 most of our family and friends’ reactions were, “It’s about time!” 🙂
