BREAKING NEWS

As many of you know I moved to Atlanta to be with my boyfriend. We've had our ups and downs, mostly ups, and things lately have been unbelievably great. We've been working on our relationship with God, we've been communicating more, things just couldn't be better. Well at least so I thought....

:chewy: WE'RE ENGAGED! :chewy:

We came to Florida to visit friends, and yesterday after dinner we strolled along a beach. It was so beautiful. The sun was setting, the waves were lapping at our feet...stealing my flip flops. We stood looking out at the water, I kept talking about how perfect this day was. I rambled about how warm the water was, how beautiful the sunset was, just how perfect the day was. And he told me he was glad I thought the day was so perfect, because he'd been trying to figure out how to ask me something all day....

I am unbelievably happy, and I just wanna spread the happiness around to everyone. I'll post again with a picture of the engagement ring. God has been so good to me. I can't wait to see what else he has in store for us. Smile

We're planning on having a small family wedding soon, and on our one year anniversary have a large ceremony when we can afford it. We don't have a date picked out yet, but he wants it sooner rather than later. Smile
I'll let you guys know all the details you want as we figure them out. Smile

People may feel taken advantage of if you call the second party a "wedding."

"Renewal of vows," "belated reception," whatever else you like, all are preferable.

first wedding a 'Pre Wedding'. It'll be just for immediate family. His parents, my parents, and possibly my grandparents. I'm not expecting any gifts or anything like that.

I suspect that some people, if they are invited to the wedding (#2), and are uninformed about the pre-wedding, may feel that their gift-giving decisions were altered by the withholding of information about the pre-wedding. If they believe that to be the case, they may also feel like the wedding is more for show/gifts than for "being a wedding."

I think you're entitled to do what you like, and call things what you like. Congratulations, again.

...we did the exact same thing (except we kinda eloped on 3 days' notice) and nearly 20 years later we have yet to have the "nice party!" Biggrin

be a formal wedding. I'm not a huge girly girl, and for that one day I want to feel like a princess. That and as the oldest (grand)child I have to make a spectacle for 2 Grandmother's and 1 Great Grandmother. Though all 3 may be at the Pre Wedding.

Everything they've said and more!

Congratulations, Pika!

May God be with you and bless you.
May you see your children's children.
May you be poor in misfortunes
and rich in blessings.
May you know nothing but happiness
from this day forward.

Sláinte!

Thanks so much! This has cheered me up considerably. All I did was tell people I was engaged and guilt started smacking me in the face! o.O
