Wedding and Engagement daydreams....


The Perennial Princess

Recommended Posts

On February 13th, 2016, the love of my life, my soul mate, my puzzle piece, proposed to me in a totally unexpected way! More details on said proposal can be read here

 

("Oh my sweet papa, I did think that it was perhaps an optical illusion as I felt my being becoming progressively more and more weightless as you asked me, “Will you make me the happiest, luckiest papa in the world and become my wife?” I know that I said yes immediately, that it spilled out in the way it had been longing to since the day we first met. I do not recall the ring being put on my finger, only the weight, and the strangeness of this glitzy, all too beautiful piece of jewelry smiling at me. Still, all I could do was helplessly fall against you, and you took me in your arms, as you did that first night, and every night after, and saved me, yet again. ") 

 

On that special day, I received my dream ring, which was and is a 1.5 carat Vera Wang ring with bow detailing. Each and every time I stare at that ring I am left speechless by its beauty and the import of its presence on my little baby finger. I am certainly the luckiest baby on the face of this earth!

 

However, I am interested in your own stories....your own fantasies (or real life happenings) concerning your engagement/wedding. Let's see images of your dream ring, and dress, and so on. So please, share in this lighthearted thread about your own conceptual framework for those special days. Indulge in a bit of daydreaming/show and tell!!

First of all, CONGRATS!!! *glitter*  *glitter*  *glitter*  :D :D :D*glitter* *glitter* *glitter*

 

But anyways, my wedding/engagement have always been things I've daydreamed about but its always changing. Do I propose on a beach, at home, somewhere more romantic? Do I have the wedding at the beach? Will I get married here on the coast? Do we get married in spring? Do I do what I said I'd do when I was 16 and get married on Halloween? What song will I play for our first dance?

 

One thing is certain though: No matter when I get married, I want to be the best husband/daddy for my bride I can be!!

Daddy and I got married last year. We both felt right away that we wanted to be together, but didn't tell each other for a while because we know how infatuation works and wanted to give it time to see if there was a real, long-lasting compatibility and happiness. But Daddy did first suggest running away together to Vegas to get married a few months after we met (which was funny since he was 35 and I was 45), but I thought he was joking--and he probably was to some extent. Our wedding was perfect for us. We were married at a Buddhist monastery in California that I go to quite often by a monk friend of mine. It was on top of a mountain, overlooking a beautiful valley at sunrise. Our kids were there and our closest friends from all over the U.S., France, Vietnam, Germany, Thailand, China, etc. Then we spent another week at the monastery on retreat together. Sleeping under the stars (and other stuff), being quiet and close and letting it sink in. It was very us and a perfect way to start our marriage.

I want to build an alter with my SO and then carry it up into a beautiful mountain and have a little ceremony with just a few people. not really for the government but for us, i just imagine it being what a fairy wedding would be like. a small pond a beautiful view the love of my life and my best friends. i guess you could call it a hippy wedding (he always does) but i don't think of it like that. i think of it as only our moment and like there will be nothing like it ever again

Oh wow. That's really awesome!! Um... Mister asked me to marry Him only four days into our dating haha. I said yes but we didn't officially get engaged until about six months into the relationship. He bought me a ring and proposed again on one knee in front of my family. We've been together for seven years now ^_^ I want my wedding to be outside in the near by mountains but we'll probably end up having it on Mister's dad's farm. I would like it to be on the autumn equinox but that probably won't happen 'cause of how cold it gets around then D; But it'll be smallish with family and friends and I'll have to have two maids of honors 'cause I just can't choose between the two ladies I love. We'll have a beautiful wedding cake and lots of autumn oriented decorations. I haven't decided on a dress yet but I'm thinking something that's maybe a traditional style but not white. I hate how I look in white and darn it I will look pretty on my wedding day >.< Oh! And I want it to be a handfasting/wedding. I think I want to see if my aunt will get ordained and do it for us. Someday...

Your ring is so gorgeous! I don't want a traditional wedding just because it was never really important to me, but I will be having a traditional Lao wedding when the time comes.  

 

The attire consists of a silk embroidered skirt with a silk blouse like this:

I've also been looking for rings but I haven't found one that has caught my eye yet :)

I love everybody's ideas! Growing up, I never thought I would get married, so I never really bothered dreaming about it. Daddy proposed for pretend pretty quickly :p maybe a month or two into us dating. We went and looked at rings shortly after that, and found a really gorgeous one but I don't know if I could live with myself knowing Daddy paid so much for something so little! A simple wedding band would be plenty enough for me :)

 

I don't look good in white, so I'll probably wear like a pastel pink or blue dress. I want like a dress that's really fluffy with maybe a dark colored petticoat under it. :) I'm torn between a birdcage veil and a mantilla. Maybe it will depend on the dress.

 

I really don't know about details other than that. Part of me wants a theme, but then another part of me wants something simple and traditional. I'm religious but Daddy is not so I don't know how we'll strike a balance there. There are soooo many decisions to make! I'm glad I have plenty of time to think of it :p

I've never gotten a chance to have homecoming, prom, or anything else of the sort. Instead of being able to think on things like that, I've spent such a long time occasionally thinking about my wedding.

 

Originally, I thought I wouldn't have a white dress. I do not like the color white, and have my own issues with its symbol of "purity". However, when I was 13, my boyfriend who was 17 was certain he would marry me. I entertained him on this, knowing it would never probably happen. He was Catholic and very certain about having a traditional wedding. My non-traditional dress would not fly. To humour him, I looked into dresses. Attempting to make him alright with dresses of a different color, had failed. I adore things from the Victorian Era, and tried to find a white dress I could tolerate. I was able to find a white Victorian dress that I liked. This had opened my options to white dresses. I cannot say if my dress will be white or not, anymore.

I assume it will be a small wedding, due to my lack of friends and family. I'd like the service to be beautiful but probably not incredibly fancy. I'd thought that the food for my wedding could be my favorite, and my grooms favorite and guests could decide. I've not picked a time of year, but know that it won't be in Winter.

I'm not one for rings with large stones, or many of them. I would like a band, along with an engagement ring. Nothing very flashy. Simple and cute.

I would like to have my hair in Victorian Era up-dos, Like something very elegant and beautiful. Hopefully it won't be short at that time.

 

The only solid wedding dream I have, Is something I say anytime this topic comes up is "I will have my honeymoon in Cape May, NY. Even if it makes me bankrupt"

Cape May, is nearly and entire town with Victorian Architecture. With many elegant bed and breakfasts. A place I will want to see my entire life.

 

 

Thats nearly all I have planned for now. At least that I can think of :p

Just as an ending note, CONGRATULATIONS soooo much!!!! I wish you two the happiest marriage

Daddy and I want a very small wedding. 

 

Mostly because we kinda hate everyone else but each other, partly because we have a 17 year age difference and my family would not be happy (although Daddy acts like a teenager sometimes!), and partly because we love each other so much and to us, the other is the only person who exists. We are us. We only need us, and we want it to be as intimate as possible. 

 

I've seen an engagement ring I've fallen in love with. Daddy and I really love simple things, nothing tacky or too girly or little, which is strange because with anything else I love everything pink and sparkly! But when it comes to clothing etc, I go simple.

We want totally simple wedding rings. White gold for me, he wants tungsten. 

 

I want to wear a very simple, floaty white babydoll dress. I'm Catholic, and I love chapel veils, so will wear a mantilla veil. I love the significance, and they're also pretty cute. If it was possible with just us two there, I want to get married in an actual church too. Apart from the religious significance, Catholic churches are the most beautiful around. I want him to wear a grey pinstripe suit, but I don't know if he'll do it.

 

He loves me. So he probably will.  :wub:
