First of all congratulations on your engagement and on the commitment you are making to each other!!  Secondly, you are not nuts.  Everyone is entitled to do it differently.  If that works for you guys, that’s perfect! And you get to be married this year!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I was just thinking at how expensive rings can be….I personally and paying for half of mine.  My SO and i make the same salary and I wouldn’t let him pay for the whole thing himself.  Same for the wedding, it’ll come out of both our finances.

@carebear22: good for you! when i was initially dreaming about getting angaged to my boyfriend, i too got caught up in the material aspect. but after i have had months with no proposal, he could propose to me with a twist-tie and i would say yes! that is how i know it is real, and not about just wanting a ring or a dress.

august is so soon! where are you going on your honeymoon? have fun and enjoy the ride ๐Ÿ™‚

you should post pictures when you do have a ring in the future

Congrats! I love this. So many brides get so caught up in the ring, when it’s really the engagement you should be excited about. Myself included. You’ve definitely got your head in the right place, which will make for an awesome engagement!

Congrats!  I agree with the PP a lot of people get caught up with the ring and forget about the commitment it symolizes myself included.  Your wedding is only a couple months away yay!

I don’t have a ring!!  We both thought it was a waste of money and we didn’t like the gender imbalance of it.  But I am no less engaged. ๐Ÿ™‚  (As I was reminded last weekend, when I put down a heart-stopping deposit on our caterer…)

@carebear22: I love where your head is at. I could use a little dose of that myself. We are full-on planning after finding the perfect location and I get pretty darn upset that I don’t have my ring yet.  Good for you! Don’t let people get you down, you have a great outlook on it.
