Hi everyone,

Quick intro before I get stuck into the forum image

I'm 22, got engaged last week, and hoping to get married September 2011 or May 2012 depending on availability of venues. My partner is 25 and we have been together nearly 3 years.

Hope to get to know people soon - I'm sure my "non-engaged friends" are getting bored with my wedding chat alreadyimage

  • Hi Mrs JLo2b!

    Nice to "meet" you image

    The proposal - It was my birthday and for weeks he had been saying that he had gotten me the BEST present but said it was a big surprise until the day. I had been telling everyone at work about my surprise and they all guessed that he was getting me a ring - I didn't believe them though!

    So on my birthday we went to stay at a posh hotel, and then he said he was taking me to a 5* restauraunt for dinner. I thought that was my surprise! After we had finished eating, he asked if I fancied having coffee in the "viewing room" which is at the back of the restaurant, with amazing views over the city. I agreed and we were escorted (!!!!) by the manager into the room.

    There was no1 else in the room, and there was a big pressie on the table. H2B said Happy Birthday and handed me the pressie which I opened, and it was a bear from "build-a-bear". I pressed it's hand and it sang happy birthday and then he told me to press it's tummy. I did and it was H2b's voice saying: I love you, will you marry me? I turned round and he was on 1 knee with the ring box open for me to see. Of course, I said yes!

    He has picked a beautiful ring which I love! All my family aready knew as he had asked me dad permission weeks before!

    What about you? How did your fiance propose? Tell me about yourself image

  • You wont believe this but Stirling is the town I was born and grew up in. Only moved away 4 years ago to go to Uni!! My parents still live there and I'm back there all the time. Now THATS what you call a Small World! Are you still at Stirling Uni then? What do you think of the little place?!

    Awwwww your proposal is lovely too! Bless our H2Bs! Getting married in Rome will be amazing! image

  • Do you have a job then? Its really hard getting graduate work I would have to be interested in Banking when i go to graduate couldnt get anything which made me go back to uni!

    Loch Lomond is gorgeous! Its soo hard to decide what to do when it comes to making decisions we wanted the big wedding but when we actually got engaged and talked about it we changed our mind! LOL
