darkwater67 :  we discussed the dates we each prefer; we have couple of venue scenarios already and the ring is being made. The funny part is the honeymoon is pretty much finalised .. to say we did it all backwards is an understatement ๐Ÿ˜‚

darkwater67 :  yes we have ๐Ÿ™‚ he likes a particular month and we know who’d be there etc. We know where we want to have the ceremony, reception and honeymoon. There’s lots of wedding details we’ve discussed although admittedly he’s not keen on spending much money. It might still be a while but I can’t wait to get into booking

darkwater67 :  I think regardless of what everyone does that it’s important to have a wedding which reflects you guys as a couple. It’s about personality. I’ll come for the s’mores ;).

We went to look at Venus a few months before he proposed, he was quite happy with that. We didn’t get engaged till like our 10th viewing ๐Ÿ™ˆ

  • Wedding: June 2017 - A vineyard

My dad and I have done some light planning (with permission from dbf) because we are the ones paying for it. Such as, do I want it to be a cocktail hour or a sit down dinner. Hold the ceremony in a church or outside. I decided what colours I wanted and that I wanted to use my mother’s prescott for decorations.

    But we won’t make any final decisions on much else until after I get my ring (hopefully later this month when they finish it at the jewellers) because my dbf is military and we need to know if he will have leave so we know what state we are even doing it in. But it sounds like you two have yours all planned and thats awesome ๐Ÿ™‚ Less pressure to decide things when he does say go for it.

I had a secret Pinterest board of wedding ideas but no concrete planning. I’m glad I didn’t either because the early Saturday evening beachy summer wedding I always thought I’d have is now an early Sunday afternoon fall wedding.

yes! It is good to have a short list of potential venues, dresses, bands in mind beforehand so you can cut down the planning time after proposal. You don’t have to book anything, but having a rough idea of what you want is good.

darkwater67 :  Oh my gosh! Your wedding sounds so intimate and personalized to you as a couple. I much prefer weddings like these rather than cookie-cutter affairs. I want an invite! Lololol. Congratulations on this new chapter in your lives, xoxo.
