This Christmas brought more than snow flurries! It brought a flurry of marriage proposals, too! Congratulations to all the new brides-to-be! I'll never forget when our son-in-law announced his intentions to propose to our daughter. I had just finished spending a week at the beach with the family, including the boyfriend, and was rested, relaxed, and ready for a new school year. When we pulled into the resort office to return the key, the boyfriend was waiting in the parking lot waiting for us. He looked a little worried. He approached the car and asked to talk to us and well, I got so excited it's all pretty much a blur now, but you can figure out the rest...we had a wedding to plan!! But first, the proposal! He told us he would pop the question before she returned to law school that fall, but there was no set date. If you knew my girls and me, you would know it is impossible for us to keep a secret from each other, but somehow I had just enough self-control to get me through the month. He arranged a romantic dinner and then a rickshaw ride over to the Battery overlooking Charleston's harbor where he popped the question. Stalking them in the park nearby was son-in-law's roommate who captured it on camera for them! Even better, the roommate become son-in-law #2 when he proposed to baby daughter two years later!! My advice to all the couples who just entered into this wonderful commitment: Take a little time to enjoy this engagement spell that you are under. Spread the good news far and wide and don't be hounded into making any decisions about the date, venue, or wedding party until you have a chance to sit down and reflect on some other issues first. What other issues? I'll talk more about that in the next post. This is all about the engagement for now! CELEBRATE IT!
Please share with me, too!! I want to hear all about it!
Oh, yes, and if you are looking for a ring, The Green Hanger Shop even has one of those. We also have lots of options in wedding dresses, bridesmaids' dresses, and even MOB dresses! My favorite items though are the new custom wedding garters with lots under construction, so have fun and take a look!
