- Wedding: April 2014
My fiance proposed to me on 12/23/2011 and it was wonderful. I’ll share the details when I can write it all without getting overly emotional.
Anyway, a week later, he asked me about the groom. Does the groom get any kind of engagement ring to let the world know he is now taken too? Does the bride propose to the groom later? He was genuinely curious and it almost seemed like he was hinting around. He’s said something more than once over the months, so I get the feeling that it is important to him.
So yesterday, I sent him some websites that had men’s “engagement” rings(though they looked like regular wedding bands to me). He found one he liked, but said he’d like our wedding bands to match. So he knows what’s up. I got him that ring he liked and now I want to propose to him.
Even though he is more of a father to my children than their own dad, I don’t want to do it on Father’s Day because we’ll be doing a memorial to my father since he passed so recently. It would be an honor, but at the same time, there would be a cloud over the day.
Ladies! I need some ideas! SuperFine is an avid golf player and will probably go pro in the next couple of years, but that kind of theme would almost be expected. He cleans house like a pro and is always busy doing something, even if it’s just cleaning the carpets because our dogs won’t stop pissing on them.
I’m open to all kinds of things. We are in the Atlanta area and I don’t mind traveling a few hours if necessary, but I really want to make this special for him. Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.
