Don’t worry, you’re not alone. I was NEVER one of those girls who had her wedding planned out before I met SO. Now, 5 1/2 years later, we always talk about it even when I try NOT to it’s always brought up somehow. I blame him for being so awesome.

@ccantics:  Hi Caroline, welcome. 

I too am a NEW-BEE… and waiting. 

YES it can be a little wierd talking wedding plans without a ring on one’s finger.  We are looking for the “right” one.  Frustrating.  Lol, I sooo want to get on with it.  Hence why I started reading this website, and finally signed up for an account. 

Men are unpredictable they do things on their own timetables, and in their own order (not always A-Z, sometimes they like to hop around all over the place… drives me crazy).  We are talking venues, and ceremony details, looking at riings etc, but he still hasn’t asked my Dad (something he says he wants to do).

Lol, if it provides you with any peace of mind (and a little entertainment) my SO and I are both over 50+.  Love and Marriage is ageless… I find myself surprisingly as giddy as a school girl when I was married the first time 30+ years ago.

Hi Caroline!  Welcome!

Im also a waiting bee and know exactly how you feel.

I suggest that even though you don’t have the ring yet, use this “waiting” time to do lots of planning, legwork and research for your wedding.

That is exactly what im doing, yes it is a little weird with no ring, but if you trust your SO and know the ring is coming then this is a great way to get a headstart and probably cut down on some stresses later on.

I already have several aspects of my wedding and reception decided, literally.  Weddings take a lot of planning, even small intimate ceremonies, there are so many details.  So you might want to start planning from now.

I think its a really good idea. Plus it keeps me super distracted from the waiting thing Wink
