So, I'm getting married in a matter of weeks. Very. Very excited.
Guess this won't be a "traditional" planning thread, as it's almost all done and I can't remember most of the details of when I did what, but then there wasn't too much to plan!!
So... The story.
Me and Hubby-to-be got engaged after a very short relationship. In fact, we started really talking properly to each other on Good Friday last year. We worked together, and had said hello but a small comment on Facebook (on his side) and a bit of prosecco (on mine!) got the conversation flowing. There hasn't been a day since we haven't spoken .
He was everything I didn't want. We worked together. He lived miles away. (despite working at the same place, he mostly works at home) He is divorced .He has a daughter .He is 21 years older than me . And yet, I fell deeply in love.
I had never wanted to get married, until I met H2B. So much so, one night, we were lying in bed having chatted for hours, and I asked him to marry me. He said yes instantly. We set the date there and then. 3rd August. One year to the day I asked him. (we had to check the time, as we realised it was 2am so technically the 3rd and not the 2nd as imagined!) .the next day he asked if I was sure .I said absolutely!
First things first .I declined the job offer I had just been made (which would have meant being even further away!) And set about planning to move to be with him!
Secondly, engagement rings. Yep .rings .I wasn't having one unless he was. So we had one each!
this is his.
this is mine .
Next up. Deciding on the ceremony...
