I’m getting anxious & you could say we are putting the cart before the horse…
I bought a simple dress online (haven’t received it yet), purchased pomanders (from a fellow Bee), we purchased his tie today, but still waiting on the proposal. We are having a very simple civil ceremony (at his g’ma house with my BF).
We met with our jeweler again about a week ago and he has all the stones picked out for us to look at-diamonds & rubies but there was a delay in the casting of the ring molds. I’m not exactly sure if that is the correct terminology but we are having our rings custom made and it has been an interesting yet at times overwhelming experience. My SO knows a lot about jewelry (yay for me!) so when we met with the jeweler and they are talking millimeters, settings, breathers, band width etc…it goes right over my head. The only thing I understand is carats, diamonds, rubies. Anyway, SO asked the jeweler at our 2nd meeting if the rings would be done by a certain date-with the delay I asked in a round about way if this was going to delay things. SO said no, I’ll have them by the 25th. My response was, oh, well what happens after you get the rings? He looked at me in disbelief and said, you’ll have to wait & see. I thought he would propose on his b’day (July 21st) but it looks like it will be July 27th-my b’day. We have dinner reservations that evening & a weekend getaway planned.
It’s so weird how we are doing things. So weird that I’ve only been able to talk to my BF about it. It’s so nice to be able to come to this site and read other people’s stories.
How am I suppose to stay calm on my birthday? Suggestions…
