WEEKEND WEDDING PLANNING: EEEEK! YOU’RE ENGAGED
Although I’m on a month long wedding planning ban, it doesn’t mean I can’t help you guys with your own plans this weekend.
It feels like soooooo long ago since I got engaged but I still remember it like it was yesterday. It will forever go down as one of the best days of my life and I will never forget it. This week, I got to relive a teeny tiny bit of that excitement as I found out that one of my best friends boyfriends was planning on proposing and he wanted me, to help him make it special. I had the job of helping him find an engagement ring and I can tell you, that I now have some idea of just how much pressure our other halves must feel when it comes to planning that perfect proposal.
First, there’s keeping the whole thing a secret in the first place. I found this particularly hard as she is one of my best friends and I naturally wanted to tell her everything. Ever since I found out, I’ve been feeling like I’m going to burst, so I can only imagine how hard it is to keep a secret like that from your soulmate. Then there’s finding out ring sizes without them realizing what your up to. I mean come on who knows anything about ring size? I don’t even know what size clothes I need half the time! And don’t even get me started on the proposal, there’s so much pressure to do it better than everyone else!
Based on all that alone I don’t envy those of you whose job it is/was to propose, but at the same time I think its an extremely brave thing to do… and at least now, I’ll have somebody else’s wedding to help plan!
I would love to hear your engagement stories, how did your significant other pop the question? Did you know they were going to do it or no? Perhaps you were the one to do the honours of asking? How did you feel?
