New in town!!


Recommended Posts

Hello ladies, I just found this site yesterday and it's amazing all the info I have found. My name is Sandra and reside in Northern Virginia. I am semi-engaged if that makes sense. I got a promise ring a couple of weeks ago and I'm rather confused. Does this mean I am engaged? How do I present this info to my family and friends? Anyway, he said the engagement ring is coming and wanted us to shop together but I would rather for him to do it on his own. Whatever he gives me would be perfect. We want to get married in Puerto Vallarta on May 2008. It's too early to know a specific date.


I heard that Puerto Vallarta's beaches are very rocky, and do not have smooth sand is that true?smile159.gif

Hey, welcome to the forum!!! smile159.gif


That is a bit of a confusing situation! I went "hint shopping" with my FI before he proposed. Maybe just give him a sort of guideline so he's less nervous about picking out the "wrong ring" - even though we all know they always do a great job. e.g. "I like white gold, it's so pretty!!" - there instantly narrowed down. lol. I know my FI was pretty nervous about picking out the wrong ring and he did a great job!!


As for PV, I don't know too much. sad.gif Sorry. But welcome to the forum anyways!!! cheesy.gif

Lucky Gal! I would go ahead and use the opportunity he's given you to pick out your engagement ring. I understand you still want the element of surprise but will you really like *anything* he picks out? Give him a break; take some of the stress out of the shopping experience for him. Try on a ton of styles, pick out a few favorite bands, then he can go back at his leisure, select one of your pre-selected bands, then buy the stone of his choice and budget. This way you'll both be happy with the choice (and you'll still get an element of surprise.) I selected my band post-engagement and there were quite a few styles I liked that just did not look right on my finger (this was all part of his plan, me picking out my own band.)

Welcome! I'm a PV bride as well ... let us know if we can help!


As for the ring shopping - that's a tough one. I'd say, like the other girls said, give him some hints. Maybe even circle a few pictures in magazines so he gets some ideas. Or you could even tell him just to buy a diamond and a temporary, plain setting - then propose. Then you can both go back to the store together and pick out a permanent setting. I think a lot of jewelers will do that.

    • i'm also planning my wedding there.  techzpod mobdro
    • I agree that you should have your ceremony at the time that you and your FI want and I think it's great that you are taking the comfort level of your guests into consideration pertaining to the heat.  customer survey
    • Had anyone traveled with their wedding dress on JetBlue? If so can you tell me how you did it? I leave 9/23 and I’m still lost on what I’m doing. I bought a vacuum seal bag but I’m iffy about using that. TIA
    • Hello, has anyone recently gotten married at Le kliff? so far our planning experience hasn’t been the best, does anyone have any recent experience with getting married there? 
    • Hi I’m about to book my wedding and wonder if anyone has recently got married at RUI Ocho Rios? Would anyone has the prices for extras please? We are going to book the top package but we need to add extra people as we have 50 guests. we also want to have an after party after the reception - any ideas on the timings for it or prices please? We have emailed the hotel but can’t seem to get any answers until we pay deposit. Which we have just done at Bahia Principe to find out after they won’t allow us to have a reception past 9:30pm even though they said we could at a cost of $300 usd per half hour prior to booking and paying our deposit. We where prepared to pay this even thought it is very expensive plus DJ and bar costs.    we are nervous to book and pay another deposit now incase we are in the situation. We are already paying hundreds of pounds to amend our guests bookings too.    any advice is greatly appreciated please.   thanks  Sam sjpulfer18@hotmail.co.uk
