always a bridesmaid...

Recommended Posts

I love being a bridesmaid. Its the most fun you could have with your girlfriends and I love being apart of making my friend feel like a million dollars! I'm in another wedding next Sept and my boyfriend is also in it as well. Needless to say after 5 years of on-and-off dating you can be sure we have spoken about getting engaged.


Do you see where this is going???


Well last night the bf told me that he doesn't look to get engaged within the next 2 years.



we don't live together and wont until marriage

he just graduated and has an amazing job

I'm graduating in Dec- but I still have two + years of graduate studies ahead of me


long story short- I want to get engaged but I know that having a wedding within the next 3 years is ridiculous bc of school and trying to plan a wedding during that would drive me nuts--- and no studying would happen!


How am I going to wait so long with all of these weddings happening all around us?


Help! Help!

my gf is in the same situation. She's my MOH but they are done with school and established. She is dying to get married. I told her to just wait for him until he's ready. Because if you are in a good relationship and you know he's the one, then give him his space and time because he will marry you when he's ready. (And hopefully he'll do a good job with the proposal). My friends grandma has been married for 60 plus years and she got married really young.  Hopefully, you'll spend more years married then single but don't rush it. Enjoy the "dating period" especially since you're in school. Study!! wink.gif

My cousin just got married last Christmas after more than 10 years of dating a guy. He is great, and they were both out of school with established jobs when they met but he just couldn't seem to pop the question. Now they are about to celebrate their one year and they are trying to have a baby! If it is meant to be it will be. Just be patient.

Thanks ladies! Sometimes it is so hard to wait (5 years) but I know that God has a plan for us. We recently have started talking about getting engaged. He thought I wanted to wait till after Grad school. I'm so happy with our relationship I just want to marry him. I know that there are other factors involved in setting a good foundation for marriage and we are talking about what we both think those are. Thank you for the support... I just can't wait to marry my best-est friend!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
