And now, the details...

Thanks, guys, for all your warm wishes. It's wonderful to have so many people sharing the excitement.

Regarding the ring, I picked it out myself. Pirate didn't know what I liked and felt it was better to let me choose. Of course I would have liked whatever he selected because of what it represents, but it was nice to pick something really different! The 'petals' are tanzanite, there's a tiny diamond in the middle, and the setting is 9carat white gold. yay for durability!

Pirate took me ring shopping in Bristol and asked me to marry him outside the jeweler's shop. Yay for romance!

We're thinking about next September for the ceremony, so for the next 10 months this has officially become a wedding blog. sorry about that. if anyone catches a whiff of "bridezilla syndrome" you will tell me, won't you? you guys will get to hear all about the details as plans firm up, i assure you.

Thanks again for all the happy wishes! love and hugs to you all. xoxoxoxox

Belated congrats from a newcomer! Very happy for you, and I really like the ring, which is muchly impressive, as I don't get jewelery. I think it's the whole being male thing.

Either way, it seems like a good point to be joining this blog, so I can experience your journey! And hopefully pick up a few tips :), should the dreaded day ever happen to me.

And congrats too, of course. I like it when good things happen to good people.

I am waiting for middle sis to get married - her and the chap chose the location, but for the last 3 years(!) have been too busy running a business to take time off to so much as nip in the register office let alone choose a "meringue" (frothy white dress). Kid sis's wedding was great fun - guests got a choice of croquet on the lawn, the swimming pool or hiking in the woods. I somehow imagine yours being held on a river ....

Llewtra: you're not far off, if all works according to (the VERY tentative) plan!

Isn't there a cheaper way for you to stay in England?


Kidding.

Congrats Ceebs.

That ring is just too, too pretty. I've never seen a wedding ring like it.
