We had a heart to heart about getting married. He has asked my parents, and gotten my great-grandma’s diamond to use as the center stone, we agreed that we only want to be engaged for about a year and that early fall of next year would be perfect for our wedding. I love that he is so open with me and willing to talk so honestly about everything. I keep getting more and more excited!
Also, he found out that I was trying to set up a smartypig account to start saving for the wedding (I was trying to keep it a secret). He asked what it was and I told him. He said “why don’t we start a joint account so we can save for the wedding together” because another thing we had discussed was not going into debt over the wedding. EEP I love this man. Ladies I can hardly wait to be able to call him my FI!!
On a funnier note, He showed me my great-grandma’s ring that he had gotten from my parents to use as my center stone and put it in the top drawer of his desk. So of course I would go look at it everyday despite how hard i tried not to. So i told him to hide it better so I wouldn’t know when he was taking it to get the diamond reset. He laughed at me but did it anyways. I know the surprise will be worth it in the end but now the suspense is killing me!

That’s really great that you and your guy have such an open relationship! Hope you don’t have to wait too long to get your dream ring! Oh and I love that you’re using your great-grandmother’s stone in your ring!

That is so cute! We’re using a center stone from my mom’s engagement ring. I like that it still ties in family, yet I can have a unique setting, so it feels like it’s still “mine”. I would be soooo tempted to keep checking on the ring, to see if he had taken it in yet or not!
A fall wedding sounds perfect! I’ve always wanted to get married in the fall; unfortuantely, with being a teacher, it’s easier to get married in the summer (I also wanted to have the honeymoon right after the wedding…can’t have it all, I guess!). I hope we’ll be reading your grad post soon!

That’s so cute! That’s basically how it is for my Boyfriend or Best Friend and I as well, except he hasn’t actually purchased the ring yet, though we’ve looked a couple times (and are going again tomorrow!). It’s so wonderful to be able to talk about it and share your excitement together. Hopefully he’ll give you the ring back soon so you can start planning! 🙂
