- Wedding: October 2014
I’ve had a good past couple of waiting weeks. Still think my proposal isn’t coming for another 4-8 months but ever since we went ring “browsing” (since we saw still we both liked but no purchase ..as far as I know ..has been made) my SO can’t stop bring up our wedding. He is very excited for it to happen even thought we are tryin to sort out our savings right now. Anyway on to the 2 things that made my week end great.
Ok first off one of the mean things my SO wants for our wedding is to have my youth president (who also was a spiritual mentor for him when he was in school) to marry us. I wasn’t sure if she could eventho she is a Rev. so I told him if that’s what you want I support you but it’s your job to find out. This topic happened at least 6 months ago mind you. Now about 4 months ago when he came to pick me up from a youth’s lead meeting everyone was just chilling and relaxing and from the corner of my eye I saw him pull her to the side. I said not a word but had a feeling he was holding up his side of the deal.
Now to tie in that situation with the next thing that has me really happy right now. My uncle’s gf and 3 boys are visiting us fro 2 weeks. So a family friend was asking her when is she and my uncle going to tie the knot (very traditional Christian family). She said soon and that started up a general talk of weddings. Now my SO know from the get go I dun’t want anything too big and dunt want to spend more than $5000 and that I want a short engagement (I know I know I sound pushy and I do have my moments :$ but he saw no problems with these wants and totally agreed) and he knew I was stressing over my family and his family wanting something different ( they have their pushy moments too). However as we talked about it they were agreeing with everything I wanted my wedding to be (not telling family until I am engaged because after almost 8 years of dating we get questioned enough as is). The only thing my gram disagreed with was who would marry us. As I talking to my SO on fb I told him how my day was and what me and the fam talked about including the whole gram doesn’t want that person to marry us. Well he had a groomzilla moment it was the funniest thing. He all well she said she could do it and I doubt she’ll lie. So I’m like when did she say this and he’s like the night every1 was outside talking in the parking lot. So I was right ( he’s never gonna know I thought that was going on and just proves he isn’t the best with hold secrets )
Anyway this is already long I’m just glad things are moving along and my normally impatient self is relaxed during this waiting time. Hope you other bees enjoyed ya’ll weekend 🙂
