@Big Truck: I am in a similar situation. “S” and I are unofficially engaged. He already told me that  we will be going to the jewelry store and design my e-ring after Valentine’s Day. His reasoning is that he will receive his tax refund end of January and since the jewelry places hike their prices before Valentine’s day, we will go after and get a better deal for the money. We already discussed that we will have a small wedding and I am researching venues, flowers and dresses. I know for sure that we will be officially engaged between March and May and it is just a matter of time. Like you, I can’t wait to start planning for the wedding!

@Big Truck:  Well, hopefully browsing the bee will help you decide on some of the details and alleviate some of the anxiety associated with planning!  I keep a nice little folder of wedding ideas on my laptop, and I don’t even plan to be engaged anytime too soon. 

Life is stressful as it is, and I’m far too detail-oriented to think I’ll be relaxed when the actual wedding planing starts.  I figured having a good idea of what I want will be helpful.

Boy am I totally in a similar situation right now.  SO has had the ring 6 weeks and nothing yet.  Most days I do pretty well with it, and some days it is PURE torture.  I have a feeling it might be this weekend though.  I don’t want to get my heart set on it and be dissapointed, but I know others have said their SO acted strange right before and I’m seriously getting those vibes.  Anyway just wanted to let you know I truly know how you feel.

I don’t know why I can’t be satisfied with knowing that he has a ring… but I’m like you.. I WANT it, and I want to start planning a wedding!

I wish I had known that with engagement comes anxiety. I was bombarded with questions and looking back now, I know I should have expected them, but I was so focused on us. It is stressful for the first few weeks, that’s for sure.
