Diamond was as high quality as I could get and is properly shiny and sparkly... So it's not a massive, but it's shiny..

I hope it's a blood diamond... that would be badass.

Cool!

Now you have to go through with the 'planning' phase. As someone who's gone through this before just nod your head and agree to whatever wife-to-be wants. Tongue

Hey my dad told me: 'this is her day, it's all about her, give her whatever she wants, whatever the cost'

Even after five years of marriage my wife is still grateful how 'understanding' I was during the wedding planning. I'm just fortunate that my wife has reasonable tastes and expectations. Cool

Again congrates Air! Smile

Well if you can't agree on plans for a wedding, I won't even imagine the crap you'll have when you have to agree on something less trivial.


There should just not be any speeches. Seriously,the guy that invented speeches.... should get a swift kick in the nuts.

also

If someone has some seemingly witty saying that is about to disembark from their tonsils at my wedding, it better be something original and really funny, or they shall promptly be taken to the basement for knee relocation and addVICE.... <- This shall be printed on cards at the tables, to avoid any unnecessary cliche type outbursts usually associated with weddings.

Maybe we should do one of those Fuhtup extreme weddings with a bride and goorm rapping of a cliff while the priest is in the basket of a cherry picker. and the guests are cajoling us to not die.


Freaken hell I used the word cajoling... it's an awesome word I shall have to make a mental note to use it more often.

Yah, so this is what I did.

Sunday was my girlfriends birthday, and I told her that her gift super awesome but unfortunately it was gonna arrive too late and she wouldn't have it on time. But the whole week yesterday I kept on speaking about the late gift, and how awesome it was and how terrible it was that it was late. So she was properly excited about it...

Then on Saturday night we drank a toast on her Bday as it arrived at 12AM and then when we went to bed, I gave her a goodnight kiss and said, btw your gift didn't really not arrive on time. She went all super excited, and then I go down on my knee like a boss, and I see the excitedment turn to absolute shock and surprise as I whip out the ring.
Ta DA!!! Tears of joy and stuffs... awesome stuffs.

Wooo!!!

That was very nice, I really enjoyed the moment and she did as well.

I wanted to do a really romantic like thing, like getting her to the top of a mountain or something, but circumstances surrounding her Bday interfered with arrangements and I didn't want to not do it on her bday and forcing a change in arrangements would have ruined the absolute 100% total surprise. It turned out extremely well, she wasn't expecting it at all that I would do it.

CoolCool

Congratulations man! I know the last few months have been crazy at work so it's nice to see you've focused on whats important and are quite happy.

I like the ring BTW. It's beautiful and elegant without being the least bit showy. You have good taste.
