Hi everyone! Thought i'd start my own planning thread as I've spent way too long reading through everyone else's and would love to have everything written down in one place!
A litle bit about us
D and I met in 2011 officially but had known each other previously at a Judo club as kids (were from a SMALL town!) We met through D's best friend Bill (our best man) who i dated very briefly (sounds more awklward than it actually is, were all great friends now!) We bumped into each other at the pub a few weeks after I stopped seeing Bill and have been pretty inseperable ever since! I was 18 and he was 20.
We moved into our first apartment a year or so later and have lived there ever since, until now! We are going to be spending a year living back with my parents in the lead up to the wedding so we can afford our dream of going travelling around Asia for 6 months as an extended honeymoon! We'll settle down and become proper adults once were back but not thinking about that for now!
We planned a 3week trip to Thailand for Feb 2017 and had the time of our lives!
We were spending the day/night in floating bungalows on Koh Sok National Park about half way into our trip, the day was perfectly relaxing, we'd spent the whole time floating around on rubber rings, sunbathing with some new friends we'd made earlier on in the trip, eating amazing Thai food and having a few beers. D seemed pretty excited to take out a canoe but I wasn't so keen, I finally (reluctantly) gave in and jumped on the back of a canoe, we rowed out a little way and D started turning around in the front to face me in the back, I was shouting at him as we didn't have life jackets on and the canoe was rocking! Thinking back, he did seem on edge as we floated around but I was oblivious! He then pulled out a ring that was tied to the string of his swim shorts and I've never been so shocked/happy/giddy in my life! I can't tell you what he said, I don't think I really took any of it in, I was over the moon! We spent the rest of the day celebrating with (almost) strangers in the middle of a lake, the nearest mobile signal at least an hour away!
The whole family were waiting at home for our news, everybody knew except me!
