i think its ok to talk w/your family about planning and money, especially if you both know you are marrying each other!  don’t worry about feeling silly either.  maybe he doesn’t want to book the reception site until he has actually given you the ring?  i was constantly worried about my favorite places booking up before my Fiance propsed, he kept telling me not to worry about it (how the heck will i NOT worry about it?!)  come to find out, he proppsed, then proceeded to tell me how he had booked the sites and put the down payment down himself.  just be patient, stay strong, and don’t go crazy!  :o)

Maybe have your stb Fiance talk to your parents too?  Let them know that the engagement is def in the works might alleve some of their hesitation?

I third Bellenga’s suggestion! ๐Ÿ™‚ We were engaged months and months and months before a ring ever made its appearance! Can you afford the down payment yourself, from your savings? Good luck and I hope you get your beautiful, romantic proposal soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

Awww, Jenn! I 110% feel you. I am in word for word the same situation right now!

Follow blogs. That is what I have done and just breeze through a couple each day.. find some smaller details that captivate you. That is what I have been doing and piece by piece it is all falling together. We just  booked our venue yesterday, but it required no deposit and is only $350 anyway, so I was very very lucky and I know that.

I have decided I will not ask my parents or his parents about anything before the ring comes. It is a personal decision. I am not even sure I will ask them after the ring, I will wait for them to offer. Money is hard for both of our families right now, so I know they will offer what they can.

I have my fingers crossed my “pappaw” might offer to throw in a good chunk.

We’ll see!!

Update me on what’s going on with you, it’s nice to have someone else who is in the same situation ๐Ÿ™‚
