We have been having the talks! The engagement and wedding and marriage and happily ever after talks! It’s fantastic and I love it!
Initially I told him I wanted no part in choosing my engagement ring. I didn’t want to pick it out and know what I was getting before I got it. The engagement ring is supposed to be his gift to me to symbolize the promise of marriage and if it is his gift to me then why should I be picking it out? He insisted, I balked, he asked again, I refused, finally we compromised.
Yayyyyy for compromise! Isn’t that what good relationships are all about anyway? We compromised and I agreed to pick out my top 3-5 favorite rings and then the final decision would be his. This way I am guiding him but not actually choosing my own ring. It sounded like a good arrangement to me, until that is, I started actually ring shopping.
It’s not as easy as I thought it would be, I have discovered there are a lot of rings that I just do not like, not at all. I’m really glad he pushed me in to looking for my own ring. I knew that I wanted white gold, it’s practically all I wear but I didn’t really have any idea of other specifics. After the last week or so of online browsing and shopping I’ve learned that what I really want is a white gold ring with a round diamond. I love the look of the round diamonds! I’m leaning toward this one…
The hard part now is the waiting. I know I’m going to have to wait at least until the summer and it’s going to be hard but it’s going to be so worth it! How fast can I put a wedding together? Keep reading my blog to find out because I have every intention of being married by September. Engaged in June? Married by September? Can it be done? Yes it can and I”m determined to do it.
