- Wedding: March 2011
Hi Ladies! I have never posted, but I have been stalking the Bee for months and months, especially relating with the waiting boards after finding out that my Fiance (ah!!) bought the ring 3 months ago! I waited like a crazy nut month after month, hoping the proposal would happen on our anniversary in Vegas this past Monday…
Well he didn’t do it on Monday…but he did it Tuesday!!! One day after our 2-year Anniversary at the Wynn in Las Vegas. A couple weeks ago he admitted that it WAS going to happen sometime in Vegas. He drove me crazy the first two days we were there, I was so nervous I made myself sick from the anticipation (being sick on vacation is such a bummer!). Our fancy anniversary dinner was planned for Monday night, so I was convinced he would do it then, but he didn’t…so then I had NO idea when to expect it.
We had been scheduling tours of some hotel wedding venues that we had been interested in for quite a while (we have been throwing out wedding ideas for about six months). The last place we had to visit was at the Wynn, in their gourgeous courtyard. Little did I know, the entire “appointment” was a cover up and he had been planning the proposal with the wedding coordinators for months! The coordinator left us alone in the courtyard to look it over, and about five minutes later, he was down on his knee with the exact ring I had fell in love with back in December. I said yes and hugged him for a long time before I noticed the coordinator was standing at the door with a tray of champagne and glasses, and a friend of ours was taking pictures/video of the whole thing. They left us alone again with out champagne, and I actually asked if he would propose again, because the first time happened so fast I coulnt barely remember it. He was happy I asked, because he said he was so nervous the first time that he didn’t say what he had planned to. 🙂 SO he took the ring and got down on his knee again, and that time I soaked it all in, and just listened to every word he said and cried. It was so amazing. I never felt more in love!
Now I get to *offically* start planning!! It has been so great to have these borads to read as I have been waiting, it was so nice to read about everyone else who was in the same torturous boat as I was. I wish you all the best of luck, and my best advice is just to TRY TO CALM DOWN. I was mad that I literally made myself sick from anticipation, and I was upset that I had ruined some of the surpise by not trusting him enough to do it at the exact perfect moment – which he did, and he had been planning it for a LONG time. So for all of you still waiting, just try to be calm, and it will all work out the way it’s supposed to. 🙂 Best wishes!
