FI and I had been talking about getting married for a couple months, and had gone ring browsing together back in December, but he knew that I wanted the actual moment to be a surprise. I knew that he had bought the ring, and that it was being sized and he kept teasing me about how I wouldn't see it coming. So last week he asked me to pick someplace to go for the weekend. I found a deal for the Waldorf Astoria in Manhattan (we live in Westchester, so it's just a train ride down) so we booked a hotel room and made dinner reservations in Little Italy. Saturday we went down, walked around the upper east side and then went back to our room to get ready for dinner. While I was getting myself ready, he put some music on and as I found out later, paced around the room for awhile. He came into the bathroom after awhile and asked me to come out, he was playing our song and scooped me up into a big hug and started slow dancing with me and telling me how much he loved me. Then he stepped back and got down on one knee and took out the box and asked me to marry him. Everything went a little fuzzy so I don't actually remember hearing him ask, or answering hahaha I just started shaking like crazy and nodding my head a bunch. He started crying and put the ring on my finger and then picked me up and we kissed. It was nothing like I had dreamed about, but it was absolutely perfect and I would not change any of it for the world!
People need to just stop using social media for every aspect of their livesI hope the bridal party responded in time, that might make for an awkward time
I had a girl who I was friends with in high school but have since lost touch with come out of the wood work and assume she was not only going to be invited, she was going to be one of my bridesmaids! Needless to say that didn't go over well and I haven't heard from her since. I've had a lot of people coming out of the wood work assuming that because we were friends at some point, they automatically get an invite. Sorry, no. Between our 2 families alone we're up at 130 before our super close friends that we see and talk to on a very regular basis.
