As we have not yet booked a venue or set a date yet; due to a fussy bride and an arguably pickier groom, I've debated whether I was ready to start a 'planning thread'. But even without those things, set in stone...I am still definitely planning, so here goes!
The 'getting together' bit
I'd just moved to a new city, was all ready to be independent post University and do my thing...then I met a boy. I'll be honest, I didn't think he liked me 'like that' after a few dates and in order to save my overly proud face I told him I wasn't really interested in him 'like that' (LIES).
We carried on hanging out a bit, I made excuses sometimes in an effort not to sound too keen (apparently 'Eating ice cream with my housemate' was one of my finest) and a few more weeks went by. Then, one drunken Saturday night conversation revealed that he did like me, so much so that he'd been too shy to tell me. After that he basically moved into my house share with me, ate me out of house and home, continuously took over the bed and stopped me eating garlic baguettes for dinner (I can't be the only person who hates cooking just for themselves?).
A few more years and separate house shares later, we rented for a house together for a year, before buying our own in June 2015. Then he proposed in May 2017...
