    Re: Popping the BIG question

    Just bumping this thread up a bit.

    Thought I'd pass along that I purchased the ring today

    And I reserved a room at a luxo resort here in town for two weeks from today, for a quickie getaway she doesn't know about yet - where I plan to take her to a scenic part of the property and pop the question.

    Have some serious butterflies, and I've been festering about this for over a year now.

    Time to sack up and get it done.

    Good luck Josh. Sounds like a nice plan.

    WOY is all over this one. My wife and I were married almost eleven years ago at a very modest ceremony. Her parents didn't have too much cabbage, so we really cut corners on the reception (read: no booze). No matter how little planning you do, it is still going to be costly AND a huge headache.

    My advice is: Take whatever $ you were budgeting for the wedding / reception and put it in your hip pocket. If you are building a life together, it will be money better spent elsewhere. If you are planning on having kids, just elope because you will NEVER have enough money for them.

    I know, I know....you say, "But Blimpie, the old lady really has her mind set on a big ceremony..."

    That's easy. Fly the in-laws and your parents to Vegas for the ceremony...stay for your honeymoon. Mission accomplished.

    Good luck and God Bless....

    No need to fret. Asking is the easy part. You wouldn't be asking unless you already knew what she was going to say.

    Make it memorable, and enjoy it.

    My friends didn't have alot of money for their wedding so they had a "stock the bar" party instead of a shower. Everyone brought a bottle for the reception and then they had a keg and an open bar. They used the money they saved to get a great church for the wedding and reception.

    jmcclain,
    Don't worry about it too much. I did it just a couple of months ago, and it was surprisenly easy. I am not going to say all my words came out perfect or anything, but it wasn't to much to worry about. But I had been going out with my fiance for 4 years, so that might have something to do with it too. Good luck!

    Re: Popping the BIG question

    Best of luck to you, Josh. I'm excited for you. Hope you have a nice time on your "get away". Be sure to post back here after that takes place.

    Congratulations to you and the future Mrs.

    Re: Popping the BIG question

    I did it last Christmas Eve. It was kind of her present. We're getting married on August 19th, in Gahanna.

    Good luck Josh, I'm sure it'll go great!

    My advice to anyone about to get married, considering marriage, or even thinking the word "MARRY": GET A PRE-NUP

    Re: Popping the BIG question

    Ok, I've got to share mine....

    We were in college and frequently would go walking on the beach below Cumberland Falls.

    One evening, we were walking back to the parking area and I stopped sat her on a boulder by the path dropped to one knee and proposed. She accepted. We were married 8 months later.

    Been married for 25 years now.

    Re: Popping the BIG question

    First time I proposed it involved a ring planted inside a rose.

    Second time, the female handed me a pregnancy test with two distinct blue lines on it.

    May not have been the most romantic proposal, but the marriage and kid have been great.

    Early congrats Josh. Do it up in the manner you see fit. It only rolls around once in life.

    Maybe.

    Hopefully.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    In the end, just as good, if not better, M2.
