My girlfriend and I have been together a year and a half this winter. We basically talked about getting married from the very beginning (things move quickly in lesbian land!!). We picked out the rings we wanted at the beginning of October and decided to go our seperate ways on things. I knew it would be hard to surprise her since we picked out the rings but it was really important for me to try! We decided to exchange first snowfall gifts after hearing last year of a couple doing it. So for her gift I got her a private lesson at our favourite yoga studio (where we went on our first date!) with our favourite instructor. She was SO suprised even at just that. The room was candle lit and so beautiful and then at the end of the class during savasana (the pose where you lay down, which we always hold hands in) our instructor put on a really special song for us and then left and I asked her to be all mine, forever!!! She said yes after rambling for a minute or two in shock and then I gave her the ring!!!!
THENNNNNNNNNNNNNN. I convinced her to keep it between us for the night and that I booked us reso’s at our favourite place and when I brought her there all our friends and family were there. It was perfect!!! The deal was that she had 30 days to re-propose back to me and give me my ring, so this past Saturday when I came home from work she had cooked me a really nice dinner and after she brought me a box full of my favourite treats from a local bakery and in the box was actually my ring! I was so surprised, she also got me this adorable card that she had made from a local artisan that had two girls in dresses on the front with a question mark.
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Let the planning begin!!! We will be having a two dress wedding this summer and can’t wait. I included a pic of my ring, it’s a hammered gold with a .31 diamond in the middle with a small halo around it!

Congratulations to you both, what a beautiful story & lovely ring. I love how you and your fiance found a balance between private special time alone and then time with family and friends, that is so perfect. The first snowfall gift idea is adorable, I’m going to keep that in mind for next year.

twodresswedding: congratulations! both proposals sound so lovely!
Haha on the word ‘fiancé’ my Fiance and I had a contest to see who could avoid saying it the longest. We would call it the ‘f-word’ and if we were talking about each other we would say ‘ffffffff-future wife’ or ‘ffffff-future husband’. I think we made it almost 4 months, then we were dealing with bank stuff for buying our house and it just slipped out.

twodresswedding: When we were engaged, my Destination Wedding called me her “Beyonce” (say it out loud…). It worked for us!
