  • Wedding: October 2014 - Our Backyard/Steakhouse

Where/How you met your Fiance or Husband?

First time I saw him was at a bar.  I eye-fucked the shit out of him but was too chicken to go up to him.  He saw me too, but he was dancing with a girl (whom I thought was his girlfriend) so I didn’t think much of it.  Saw him again at a sushi restaurant a few weeks later with the same girl…still thought he was really hot!  Then I saw him on an online dating site and messaged him.

Where was your first date?

I went over to his house and we spent the whole evening talking.  I think I got home around 3am? 

The date you became ‘Official’? 

Officially became his gf on September 2, 2012 after 8 months of dating

Engagement date?

September 29, 2013

Where was the proposal? 

John Street Roundhouse (Currently Steamwhistle Brewery) in downtown Toronto followed by dinner the CN Tower.  He works for the railroad and it’s one of those jobs that’s a lifestyle so it was very fitting for us.

Ring? 

1ct single solitaire on an 18K yellow gold tapered, grooved band

Wedding date? 

October 4, 2014

Where did you get or getting married? 

In our backyard, 24 guests then taking everyone to a 5-star restaurant for dinner.

3mm stove-pipe cut 18K yellow gold band

@Future_MrsLilly:  

Where/How you met your Fiance or Husband? Match.com – cause apparently that really works! – while he was deployed to Afghanistan

Where was your first date? 12/31/2012 – Emerald City Trapeze new years party

The date you became ‘Official’? Uh, NYE.  lol  We pretty much knew we were trying for the real deal before he came home on 12/30

Engagement date? October 4, 2013

Where was the proposal?  Home!

Ring?  He proposed with a diamond band because he couldn’t get from airport to jewelers without me knowing when he came home just to propose (in August he was stationed in MO so we’ve been LDR since).  He had this setting picked out, but I got to go in to pick center stone (within reason Wink ) the very next day!

Wedding date?  July 11, 2014

Where did you get or getting married?  Rock Creek Gardens in Washington (state)

Wedding band?  First of all, so glad I read the other responses first – I initially thought you meant reception music.  Hah!  Anyways, I wanted to use the diamond band he proposed with but it doesn’t match the ering well and he didn’t like the way it looked, so that’s now a RHR and we got this one that matches:

Where/How you met your Fiance or Husband?

We first met on the first day of middle school in 2003. We had our homeroom together and his locker was next to mine.

Where was your first date? 

We never really had a first date, because we had been friends for 5 years before we started dating.

The date you became ‘Official’? 

November 10, 2008

Engagement date?

August 24, 2013 (the 10 year anniversary of the day we met…actually a day off but close)

Where was the proposal? 

At the entrance of the middle school where we met.

Ring? 

1 ct round solitaire on a 2mm 6 prong palladium band…I don’t really have a good, clear picture of it but here’s one.

Wedding date? 

June 27, 2015

Where did you get or getting married? 

We are getting married at the church my parents were married at (even though they later divorced…), and our reception will be at a local country club.

Wedding band?

We haven’t decided yet. He wants some type of plain tungsten or maybe wood band, I want either a plain palladium band, a band with channel set stones, or I keep going back to this band with channel set alternating baguette and square or baguette and round stones. I know it doesn’t match my engagement ring but I like the look. I haven’t seen any of them next to my ring yet, so I will decide then.

Here is one of the styles I like.
