    So yesterday, my girlfriend was up marking the provincial assessments for Grade 4 French Immersion (Writing). I decided to come up and visit (it's a little over an hour away) and take her out to supper. I arrived at her hotel room with a rose in hand and gave it to her... she was very happy, and then I mentioned that I had something else to give her too...

    At this point, I got down on one knee and asked her to marry me. And she said YES!

    I am officially engaged!

    Congratulations! My one word of advise (never one word - :lol:) is to plan a beautiful, meaningful wedding but don't turn it into a crazy "event" that makes everyone stressed and broke. Good luck!

    I found that its RUSH RUSH RUSH and then a long period of nothing much to do and then about 2-3 months before the wedding RUSH RUSH RUSH again.

    It can become stressful --- my Mom planned a lot of my wedding and part of me really regrets it and part of me knows I'm going to have a great wedding. Do whatever you can to not let the wedding plans get between the two of you.

    We had exactly a year to plan our wedding--- I recommend that you get a schedule of what needs to be done when (I'm sure you can find something online for free) so that you have a good idea of a timeline. A lot of wedding schedules will include stupid stuff-- so if you're not planning on doing that (such as send out "Save the Date" cards-- Facebook, e-mail, and calling are free) then just cross it off.

    Good luck to you both!!

    We discussed a lot of the bigger things today... it will be August 2012. We have decided on the wedding party, the MCs, and the pastors. The wedding will be at her church, and the reception will be at mine. Her pastor will do the ceremony, mine will give the message. The girl who set us up will do a reading, as will a couple I know.

    All sorts of little details! But it's starting to feel real now!

    I also called my uncle, who's a caterer, and left a message. I'm hoping he's not booked (he gets booked quickly... and it is a long weekend here in New Brunswick).

    Lots of little details, but things are looking good (and affordable!)

    ETA: My sister (Who's also engaged) was very excited, and went out and bought my fiancee a planning book, which I think she really appreciates.
