Wait, aren’t you technically “engaged” if you’re getting married and have the venue etc. booked? Even without a ring? I just though it always meant that your engaged to be married…and it looks like you are!

Either way I hope your ring comes soon! Try not to drive yourself crazy though because at least you have some plans unlike some of the other “waiting” girls who have that 6-8 month “idea” of when it’s going to happen.

Good luck ๐Ÿ™‚

@marilovely: we went and bought a new washer and dryer yesterday (very exciting btw but not quite an engagement ring) 

::giggles::  I like that you’re staying positive!

I know EXACTLY how you feel. And I mean exactly. Same situation (minus the email confirmation). Date set, plans made, no ring=no announcement. At least in my case, he didn’t want to announce until we have a ring. Our families are the same in that they wouldn’t take us as seriously without the official proposal. It doesn’t matter to some people, but it matters to us that we can have our families excited along with us. I feel you.

The good news is that he has the ring and “officialness” is in the near future! You won’t have to keep it all in much longer! ๐Ÿ™‚ Keep us updated!


Bonus: you’ll have clean clothes! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m dealing with the same thing on my end. After nearly 5 years together, we’ve got the date set and pretty much everything planned, but for reasons out of our control, the ring has yet to be in the picture. I’d love to tell people that we’re committed to each other and he’s not dragging his feet (as they all seem to think), it’s only taking awhile because certain pieces have to fall into place for everything to be absolutely perfect . . . which I suspect is the situation on your end. Once those stars align and the timing is exactly right all around, everything’s going to be exactly what you want and ten times better than if the actual engagement had happened sooner. It’s kind of hard to think that way when you’re waiting, though it sounds like you don’t have much longer to wait!

At least you got an awesome washer and dryer already! My boyfriend recently bought me the loveliest, most domesticated item signifying love and commitment a gal can ever hope to recieve . . . a power saw. I’m a lucky lady. ^_^

@marilovely:  I know what you mean about needed the ring to sort of “prove” you’re engaged. I bet you guy is working on great plans right now, and it will be within a few months. Just try to keep busy doing other things: cooking, crafting, working out, sports, ANYTHING! The busier you are, the more time will move and you wont be left wondering about it every second (I’ve been in the wondering about it every second position and it is so stressful after a few days!!). Don’t forget to tell us how is happpened when he does propose!

Also: Welcome to the Bee!!



@maeby: hahahaha! Power saws are *SO* romantic.
