First, I’d just like to let all the girls on the boards know how fabulous all of your posts are. I especially love all the advice and looking at all your suggestions to other future brides. You all have such GREAT ideas. I can’t even begin to express how excited I am to finally be an officially “registered” Bee and no longer just a lurker!!!
So after having dating for the past year and a half (9 months of it via long distance, since we were both living in different cities when we met), my boyfriend and I have finally decided to take the next step!
He’s already purchased the diamond and will be buying the setting in the near future. I still haven’t decided on exactly which type of band I’d like to have the diamond set it, but will definitely make a new thread post on the boards for some assistance from you ladies. 🙂
I’m expecting for us to be engaged by fall of this year (he says he would like for it to be a surprise, so I have no idea exactly when it will happen) and since we are most likely going to be having a Carribean destination wedding, we will be waiting until February of 2012. Hurricane season lasts from about June through October and then the following months will be filled with chaotic holiday bustle, so while I don’t mind having a long engagement, I suspect I’ll grow increasely anxious during the wait!
Until then, I’m looking forward to being an active BEE!!!
