I have no sweet proposal story. He just took me out and we chose a ring together and then had a date night in, it was perfect for us.
People keep asking us if we chose a date... which we haven't. I had no idea there was such a rush to pick a date, lol. How long did it take you guys to pick a wedding date? I think we are just eloping next winter.

It's a beautiful ring. Congrats! Don't let people pressure you! Everyone wants everyone else to buy into the big wedding planning bs... just do what you want, on your own timeframe.

Congrats, my hubby and I were together for 2 years prior to our engagement, then engaged for nearly 7 years before we got hitched...we've been married for almost 2 years now.....we ended up just eloping, our families weren't too impressed but the truth is we have a gazillion other things I would rather spend money on than a big wedding.

Congrats! What a beautiful ring! I've been engaged for just over 5 years now and we still haven't picked a date, so I wouldn't worry about rushing if I were you lol! I get asked all the time when the wedding is, and I just tell people that we have no immediate plans to set a date, we're happy where we are so we see no rush!
