You’re definitely not the only one! We had tons of ‘when we get married’ and similar talks… with no ring!

Is your "wedding" folder on your desktop?  Or is it tucked away in a subfolder… πŸ™‚

I think it was almost 2 years of us talking about getting married before he actually proposed. It’s been a full year of me looking at wedding stuff online and emailing them to myself. I didn’t keep a folder… just emails.

That was me!  We had even picked a date and had started planning, but he didn’t want to call us "officially" engaged until he had given me the ring.

I knew it was coming, but I had this weird superstition that if I  talked about it, looked at wedding related materials, or even so much thought about it that I’d jinx the whole operation.

Looking back on it, I realize those thoughts were silly, and that I could have probably benefitted from some understanding of what to look for in vendors etc.  I became much better at negotiating etc half-way through the process.

So I say research away now.  You are only helping yourself in the long run!  (And right now it’s all fun, no pressure, so enjoy!)

I’m sure you’re not the only one.  There is a pretty large number of people who find themselves pre-planning their wedding before even getting engaged.  It’s such a big industry that you can’t help but oooh and ahhh over the details and tailor it to what you want.  I actually think it’s a good thing – you’ll be super prepared and hopefully it’ll be a breeze for you !!! πŸ˜€

You’re definitely not alone! I have a wedding folder as well!

My boyfriend talks about marrying me constantly, but just won’t buy the dang ring!! In all honesty it’s extremely frustrating. I wish he’d either do something or completely stop talking about it. It messes with your head, you know?

I had some many links saved in my favorites and my fi would see me looking at stuff and he would be like what are you looking at so I would show him and he would just say oh. Oh what the hell. He was just trying to mess with me and of course it worked.

you’re definitely not alone! i have a folder on my computer [in my documents folder – not hidden, mr. bee. LOL] AND a binder AND more links and stuff on my google notebook, which is so freaking handy, btw. the boy is welcomed to look through them but he’s waiting until we’re officially engaged.

Good to know I’m not the only crazy with a wedding folder on her computer.  My boyfriend would give me a ‘deer-in-the-headlights’ look if he knew.  We’ve been together for over 2 and a half years but I probably won’t be seeing any shinies for another 3 years.  x( The fact that one of my friends is getting married is not helping.  LoL

I was in the same situation before I got married. We talked and talked but he never asked the question… while waiting, I did the same thing, browsed online for ideas (that’s how I have found WB) also made a folder in my computer.. then next thing I know, we are setting the meeting of our parents, told them of our plans, no engagement ring, no crazy preparations and 2 weeks after, we got married.

Just take it easy and enjoy every minute you spend with your partner… your day will come!

Take care!
