- Wedding: March 2014
Okay so here is a little background. My boyfriend and I are not engaged. We’ve been talking marriage since very early on (he has been married before and I was engaged before so we are ready for the commitment). We’ve been together a year, live together, share bills, a dog, etc. I love Weddingbee so much– and I loved it even before I started dating him! He thinks its cute how much I love wedding stuff.
We have a family stone that we are going to use for a ring, but he is saving up to buy me the pave setting I want. I tease him relentlessly about when I am getting it, and he thinks its is adorable and humors me (bless him). My point is, that the engagments isn’t an “if” question, its a “when” question. We’ve talked dates, decided on a church, guest count, etc. We are defintiely getting married, just no ring yet!
So one of my best friends was about to move away to Boston (I live in TX) for 2 years. Before she left she wanted me to try on some dresses with her so she wouldn’t miss out when I actually started shopping. We went and tried on some at AA and DB. It was fun but I didn’t love anything. I’ve been looking at dresses for years! I’ve literally looked at hundreds of dresses online. I know exactly what I want.
So yesterday on a fluke I went into a little bridal store here in Waco just to look around. And oops! I found The Dress. It is incredible. It’s everything I’ve ever wanted, and it’s under $500!!!!
I know I shouldn’t have gone looking before I was engaged, but I couldn’t help it! Once I started I just couldn’t stop!
So, what do you think hive? Is it too soon to get the dress even if I know its the one?
