You know you’re a lady in waiting when… You think that everything your SO does is proposal related. I.e.: “Hey Gwen, when is dinner going to be ready? I gotta go to the bathroom. BAD. I’ll be back in a little while…”

Thanks babe. I REALLY needed to hear that. But wait… Maybe he’s preparing something?!?

Oi.

Gwen.

@fuschiasparkles:you know you’re a lady in waiting when… you behave yourself and quit drinking and doing naughty things so you’ll be perfect for the dress you don’t have… because you’re not engaged… except strongly committed to the gym.  *sigh*

You know you’re a lady in waiting when… you turn up the T.V. volume when the Robins Brothers commercial comes on to make sure that SO overhears it!

I’m bumping this thread because of how entertaining it is. And it’s interesting to see how people’s planning tools have changed over the course of two years… Such as:

You know you’re a lady in waiting when… You find yourself “pinning” about a dozen wedding ideas to Pinterest a day… and creating separate boards for each aspect of your wedding day… yup! :/

You know you’re a lady in waiting when… You start following bridal magazines and wedding planners on Twitter

You know you’re a lady in waiting when… You enjoy spending hours looking at other couples’ engagement photo sessions online… and start planning your own.

You know you’re a lady in waiting when… You spend your hour-long bus ride home from work every day looking for engagement rings on every woman’s left hand.

And finally….

You know you’re a lady in waiting when… You attend this year’s local bridal show. Worst thing a waiting bee can do! I went this weekend. It only made the waiting worse…

ooo I love this thread!! Here are a few…

 

You know you’re a lady in waiting when….a radio commercial on your drive to work asks “are you getting engaged this fall?” and you answer back out loud no 🙁

You know you’re a lady in waiting when….your SO’s sister asks how much longer it’ll be until she’s an aunt

You know you’re a lady in waiting when….talking to your married coworkers about your ‘boyfriend’ feels like a high school discussion

I love this thread!

 

You know you’re a lady in waiting when…you are always listening if someone is approaching your computer so you can exit out of wedding bee.

You know you’re a lady in waiting when…you are saving up vacation days for your wedding and honeymoon

You know you’re a lady in waiting when…you grow your hair out so it will be the right length for your engagement pictures

You know you’re a lady in waiting when…everytime your SO walks away when he answers the phone you assume it is about getting engaged

When you start taking notice of other people’s wedding/engagement rings.

 

When, for the first time in your life, you have brittle nails because you’re constantly painting and repainting them to keep them looking perfectly manicured.

When you feel self concious about your naked finger when out in public so you keep your left hand in your pocket.

When you start sending your future BMs pictures of rings, dresses, etc to get their opinions.

When you vowed to shut it up, so you have to keep a “backup website” open at all times in case he pops around the corner and catches you surfing wedding porn… again.
