- Wedding: September 2014
so, we opened the “wedding savings account” a while back, and had several great conversations about this being what we both really want. I’ve been really careful to aproach the situation cautiously, because I don’t want to feel like I pushed him into something he doesn’t honestly want (he does, we’re the super in loves!). Since then (a few months) we’ve talked about our prospective budget a little, what our parents can contribute, what we’d want from “our day” (out door DIY picnic by a lake with cocktails and dancing, we’re artsy kids) and how we could make it work inside of the.. next year? At which point he said, “I think a year is a good amount of time to be engaged.” SMILES!!
I am presently still ringless. He did however recently ask me about some seriously dreadful jewelry (he means well, but yikes!!, at least it gave me the opportunity to mention my ring size!) For most past christmas and birthday gifts he’s enlisted the help of my best friend (they get along very well). So, in the interest of not having to pretend I like a ring I hate, I sent her an email with links to about 5 or 6 rings I really really love, since I’m fairly certain he’ll inevitably come to her for assistance. I have REALLY particular taste in jewelry (like I said I’m an artsy vintagey type. a standard prong set solitaire seems incredibly boring to me, and I feel like he knows this and will miss the mark trying to find me something unique). Is this preemptive strike super shadey? Has anyone else out there done this? I mean, I sent OPTIONS so I would be suprised and all!! lol. Please someone make me feel like less of a jerk! 🙁
