I know he has the ring. I know he’s asking very soon but hasn’t officially asked yet but we’ve already decided on a date! May 18, 2013! I’m so excited!! My daughter and i were both born on the 28th, her in October, me in April… (share half birthdays!) lol His birthday is August 18th so we decided to stick with our lucky number 8!! Oh man, a lil over a year just doesn’t seem like enough time!
Even better, we will be having it in our backyard so no venue cost, my dress was given to me by my sister so no dress cost, we have great friends that one is an ordained minister and the other a professional photographer so no cost for either of those and another great friend of ours owns a delicious BBQ restaurant in town and has already offered to cover catering for 60 people as our wedding gift!! OMG! I’m so excited! That means most of our wedding money will go to our amazing Honeymoon in Jamaica! Yippee!!
Will have pics orf E-Ring as soon as it is slipped on my pretty lil finger!

@BushelAndAPeck: congrats! That is my date, too. Apparently it’s a pretty popular one. a few weeks ago my photographer said she had already had 4 other requests for the same date!

I was on the same boat as you 🙂 we had a date set before we were officially engaged 🙂

We did the same thing… we had talked about getting married for awhile so we even looked at venues before getting engaged! Congrats and best of luck with planning! The Bees are a great resource!!

This is just so exciting. We’ve been together 4 years May 7th. Both of us made it very clear in the beginning we did not plan to get married, not because we didn’t want to be together forever it just wasn’t important for either of us. after about 2 1/2 years i came to the conclusion that yes, eventually i would like to get married. He was still on the fence so I just waited until he wanted to bring it up, I knew it was only a matter of time. Right after our 3rd anniversary he brought up getting married in a couple of years because he was ready for babies… Well, surprise! 2 weeks later we found out we were pregnant. I told him first and foremost i would not be a pregnant bride, period. so we decided to wait till after the baby was born and be married before we start on our second which hopefully will be a Honeymoon baby! So going from never wanting to be married to setting a date has been amazing! okay done spillng my guts… WEDDING PLANNING HERE I COME!!

You got – what was for me – the stressful part (location and date) out of the way. Now you can really REALLY enjoy the engagement when it happenes! 🙂
