Eeeee! I'm so excited and its just pics for the engagement! Found a very good photographer here locally who is going to take us to a few different venues and shoot our engagement photos Nov.4! I'm SO hoping we get some good shots (I hate almost every picture ever taken of me). Was anyone else this worked up over just taking e-pics?

 

Part of it, I know, is that he still wants to "officially" propose. We talked about getting married for so long, its just kind of been understood. When we decided to set a date, it was because he said he wanted to do it in Mexico and for that, I knew we would need time. He let me pick my own setting, but picked the stone himself. I know he just had it mounted, even though he is refusing to let me see the finished product. He's really determined to suprise me....so I know he's frustrated trying to come up with a way to do it. Funny how men get....he's so serious about it and doesn't want me to even MENTION the big "P" word cuz he says he can't do it if he knows I've guessed what he's planning. He told me to book the session, and then gave me this "don't say a word" look. hahaha..We shall seeeeeeee!

How exciting! We didn't do e-pics but a lot of girls here did. I'm sure yours will be beautiful.

 

Our engagement was similar to yours though, we've always talked about it and just set a date one day. He "officially" proposed with the ring at Christmas, after the STD's went out and everything...lol

 

He had it disguised in a box under the tree with the other gifts. I opened it and it was a box in a box in a box all the way down to the ring box. I opened the ring box and it was empty! I looked up at him and he had the ring in his hand and asked me to marry him...it was cute :o)

Aww..that IS cute! That sounds like a perfect proposal to me. I'm not one to make a huge public fuss about it and that has the perfect blend of sentiment and romance!

My birthday is Nov. 20 and I've been wondering if he's trying to hold out til then, but I don't know. I keep trying to just forget about it, but geez, thats impossible! I WANT THAT RING!

    • 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.
