- Wedding: June 2015
Yayy, I just got engaged yesterday!
SO (Now FI!!!!) had the ring for a few weeks, I knew he had it and admittedly, I was trying to set things up for him, so when we went out for the day to watch a film he really wanted to see, I came up with the idea of a classy picnic in the park.
I convinced him to come with me, and we bought a proper picnic blanket, plates, food, plastic wine glasses and wine spritzer . We found a quiet spot away from the crowds and had a lovely picnic – but every time it got romantic, he’d make a stupid joke. It was quickly becoming apparent that it wasn’t going to happen.
Then, as we cleared up, I felt guilty. I admitted to him that I’d been setting it up for him, and that that had been unfair of me. I apologised and began to pack away when he said my name. I turned round to see him on one knee. He said he’d known all day what I was planning, and had intentionally misled me so that I would be surprised.
Man, was I shocked! I’d been convinced that he could never surprise me, but he managed it! I was pretty much speechless as he made the sweetest speech I’ve ever heard, and I’m pretty sure that my response as he popped the questions was ‘Yes, but is this for real right now?!’ I couldn’t believe he’d surprised me!
Anyway, of course I said yes, so now it’s on to the wedding planning! Oh, and before I forget, here’s your ring porn:
It’s 9ct white gold, 0.25 carat diamond (which I know is small by Weddingbee standards, but very much the norm where I’m from).
