I just got engaged recently. Easter Monday to be exact, my boy friend asked me to marry him at the airport while we were waiting for his flight back to Rochester :)
I have no idea what I am doing either. I'm not a fan of big weddings so I definitely won't be having one and I love DIY so I will be very much involved in all aspects. I joined project wedding for ideas and also to hear about the different experiences of brides all over.
I live on a Caribbean Island called St. Lucia and my fiance is from Rochester, NY. My birthday present from him this year was a one week visit. I really thought that he would've proposed to me on my birthday especially when he asked that we have a picnic on the beach. A very private beach at that. However I was wrong. the end of his vist drew nearer and nothing! I gave up. I was so disappointed. I had never been wrong about him before.
On the day of his flight back to NY we had to leave early because we had a lunch date with a friend of mine who had come for a visit from Philadelphia the day before. She is getting married in December!! We had a great lunch and conversation at a restaurant right on the beach next to the airport and then I went to the airport with him to say goodbye :(
After checking in he asked that we go find somewhere to sit away from the crowd while we waited for his flight. I didn't think anyhting of it because neither of us like crowds. We found a quiet area on the top floor that is no longer in use an sat down waiting and talking, both of us trying not to be too sad that we are going to be apart again.
That when he asked. About 45 minutes after we first sat down. He was so nervous. He didn't do the whole down on one knee and take my hand thing though. We we sitting side by side and with his arm around me he gave a beautiful speech and promised to spend his whole life doing all he could to make me happy. The he asked if I'd marry him and I said yes! :)
Then he put the ring in the palm of my hand! lol...He was really nervous!!
So I think I found the perfect dress!! I am still looking around though because it is completely different from what I thought I wanted for a wedding dress.
Still as of two days ago, I am completely in love with it! It's by Mori Lee Style 6701!!
I also found this one that I like alot, but not as much as the Mori Lee one.
It doesn't seem like I will be getting my dress though. I was pretty bummed about it but I have decided to just wait until I get to the US to go dress shopping. I am sure I'll fall in love with something else.
The Warner Castle and Sunken Garden in Rochester. It looks Beautiful and perfect for me. I asked FI to check it out and give me an opinion.
