- Wedding: June 2014
Hey bees, so I’m new to the site, however i’ve read some posts and def looked at the e-rings! Anyway, I’ve been with Boyfriend or Best Friend for almost two years now, we talk about getting married and we know we both want to but I’m still waiting for that special day. He was engaged before and was burned badly so I know he’s going to be careful this go around, which is fine, things are great the way they are so i’m okay with that. However, it came up the other night in a group of friends what i want when it came to being/getting married and so on………well, where do I begin!?!? lol I simply spilled out the first things that came to mind…..I don’t want a diamond, I don’t want a formal wedding, I want kid/s down the road, not in any hurry…….well, when I said I dont want a diamond BF’s eyes got huge! Uh oh, did i make a mistake by opening my trap??He then said…..well, what do you want? How in the world am i supposed to do that without sounding like a greedy lil you know what, i know what I want, my mom and best friend know. I just don’t want to ruin the suprise for myself. Any advice? The picture of what i want is on my phone (if i tried telling a contruction/farm man what morganite is, he’d probably think it was some type of new rum or something), his daughter goes through my pics all the time and then shows him things (she’s only 3 she likes sliding the pictures on the iphone). Then again…….does it really matter? Should I just keep my mouth shut and just be happy with whatever comes my way (I am pretty confident he is not proposing anytime soon, just because we agreed to wait until his daughter started school bf we got married and she starts next fall). Any advice would be helpful, i don’t want him to ever think that something he did out of the goodness of his heart wasn’t “good enough” or “what i want”.
