    This morning we went to leave flowers for my mom (she died 7 months ago) at the cemetery. As we were going to leave he took a step back and got down on one knee. He did it there b/c he wanted my mom to be with me. I was so shocked (happy one) and shaking. I almost forgot to say yes. It didn't hit me at 1st why he did it at the cemetery. When it did I kept saying thank you!
    Post ring later!

    CONGRATS! You're the 1st I've heard of with a :)proposal at the cemetery. HOW COOL IS THAT? Did you find out about how long he has been planning that?
    Keep us posted about the wedding plans.

    At first I was thinking it was too weird to pop the question in the cemetery, but then I realized why he did it. It brought tears to my eyes, too :) Congratulations!!!

    Yup, I will probably be the only one who got engaged in cemetery but really it was so sentimental. It might sound weird though if you didn't know the history. My mom was my best friend:)
    I think the idea kinda just came to him, he had the ring for awhile now he said.
    I almost didnt let him come this morning to the cemetery, I am happy I did!

    Most people have been crying. He said he had the ring for two months! I am such a snoop but never found the ring at his place. He told me he thought about putting ring boxes around the house with ring pops inside to throw me off!

    No idea when we will get married. It all depends on where in NJ we will get married!

    Make sure you join the knot and go to your local board they can give you a ton of advice about local vendors.

    Congratulations!! Your engagement is going to fly by - we got engaged just about a year ago and now we are down to 48 days before the wedding, eek. We are about ready to go get our marriage license.

    Enjoy it!!!

    Congrats AMK! Your ring is very beautiful, as was the proposal. Your fiancee is a catch! That was so respectful to you and your mom, the way he chose to propose. I'm sure your mom was smiling proudly this morning. :)

    I missed school yesterday due to a workshop. I am excited to tell my class today. They are the only class I have told about Brian. I am excited to see their reaction!

    I think this weekend we are going to sit down and figure out when we get married and our budget. I have been getting bombarded with questions already. I looked on theknot.com and have a few ideas already. I am a pretty simple person so nothing over the top for me.

    Wow, AMK!
    Enjoy planning! Let it be what YOU BOTH want, not want everyone else expects.
    We got married with 2 witnesses at the court house, had our dream honeymoon (fly-in to a cabin at Wabakimi Wilderness in Ontario and fished for a week) and then had a dinner party for friends and family upon our return. We look back on it and think how perfect it was for us.

    AMK pick the time of year and the year don't set your heart on a certain date. It makes it to hard to find a place that is available. I would figure out what dates don't work for you and have a few options of dates that do work so when you book the reception hall if the dates is taken you aren't devastated.
