Amanda & Eric 03/03/10- WP/WHP/Sago Cay Centerpiece Ideas!

I am so excited to be able to start a PJ...I won't feel so silly looking at Wedding stuff!!

Our Story

Almost a year ago I had just broken up with a guy who was ALL wrong for me (can we say white washed tapered jeans?) So I decided to go online to some dating sites...just to meet some people, maybe go on a few dates, just get out of the house. I then recieved an email from Eric...something about the way he wrote to me, or looked forward to my emails to him that intrigued me. About a month after we started emailing we had our first date. It was truely love at first sight We had the most romantic first date I have EVER been on!!

Eric and I live about 45 minutes apart and try to see each other between 2 and 3 times a week. We recently decided to move in together (one month and counting!!). I think we have been talking about marriage since a week after our first date .

Here's us...one of my best friends Lauren (JazzyLolo) took this:


I love this one thought...so silly


The Proposal


So like I said, we have been talking about marriage for a while and even went ring shopping about a month ago. HOWEVER...Eric is always telling me that it will happen...someday He mentioned once it would happen this year by Christmas, but it would never be on a day I would expect (holidays or anniversaries).

Sunday night he suprised me by taking me to the spot of our first date, reading me a poem he wrote himself, and getting down on one knee...UBER romantic. It was perfect.

Apparently the PLAN was to propose on our upcoming trip to Disney on our anniversary So much for unexpected. But he said something about Sunday just felt right and he had to do.

Here's my ring


Our Plans

So we haven't decided on much...except it WILL be at Disney. Today I think we agreed on a date 3/9/10 but I still have to call DFTW...and convince my father. He isn't exactly thrilled we are engaged yet and thinks we should wait. I think it has something to do with this being my second marriage.

We are aiming for something small...probably about 40 people. I am excited to have my PJ because I want to keep the planning low key because of my father...for now

Oh no they dont! I think everyone's fingers look a little bit chubby because we're all afraid they'll fall off so we make sure those babies are snug!

Yay I'm still so giddy! I need to stop looking at your ring though because I am starting to not like mine! Yours is so gorgeous and mine is so...not original. Do you think it is ok to change my ring after only a year and a half of marriage lol?

I can't wait for all the planning to truly begin...especially can't wait to see what dress you get. I don't know why but I am anxious to see Just try not to think about your dad, he'll come around Just remember Dory when you get frustrated, "just keep swimming, just keep swimming!" Only replace swimming with planning! Ok...now I think I sound crazy...too much editing!

I second Jazzy! Being a bride with family issues as well, I LIVE by the Dory philosophy of "just keep swimming". Don't worry about anyone else right now. It's you and your DF's special day and you do what will make the two of you happy!

Lol OMG Lauren I love you. I feel like I have so long until the wedding that there isn't much to do. If I get bored later I will post some VERY early ideas I have...including a dress I fell in love with!!

Thank you Between you and Lauren you made me cry...aparently I am an over emotional bride all of a sudden!! I am just going to keep the wedding talk to a minimum around my dad. I guess he has it in his head I just want to get married because I am turning 30 this year So not true though...

Fine...I give it a few months

As for putting up some general ideas. Definitely do! I made a lot of my decisions (i.e. wedding ring!!) without really thinking about what I really wanted and I ended up with photography I hated, bridesmaid dresses that looked like bags on my girls, wedding songs I didn't want. Now you just have plenty of time to put as much thought into everything!

Sorry if I made you cry...didn't mean to!
