sneaky engagement

Recommended Posts

My fiancee Jamie and I have worked together as bartenders in an Irish pub for 2 years. When we met we were both dating other people but shortly after found ourselves single. Someone that we worked with told Jamie that I was dating someone else, so he decided that wasn't how it was going to be. He came to a going away party that was being thrown for a staff member and told me I couldn't do it, that he liked me. I wasn't actually dating anyone else, it was just a rumour so it worked out perfectly since I had liked him as well. We've been together ever since. The day he proposed was 5 days before my birthday, so he took me to a spa for the whole day before heading home and picking up our 1 year old golden lab and heading to his families cottage. When we arrived there was a gigantic bouquet of gerber daisies waiting for me and an ice cream cake (my favourite), Jamie cooked an amazing dinner on the bbq and afterwards asked if I had noticed how many gerbers there were, there were so many I had to count a few times, and finally came up with 30. 30 I thought, but I'm only 25, so I asked why 30? he replied "one for every year I've been waiting for you". He pulls out the ring and I couldn't even speak, I was so happy/excited/surprised, feelings I'm sure most of you know. It turns out he had been planning for weeks, he secretly drove to my parents house 2 hours away to ask for permission before driving to my brothers house back in our home town and asking his permission as well. My brother and I are really close and he will be giving me away. Everyone at work also knew and had been keeping it from me. We spent the night on the phone telling everyone before enjoying the perfect night at the cottage. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day.

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
