Even though I wasn't married before I wasn't into the surprise proposal and Hubster knew it. He woke up one Sunday morning and rolled over to me and said "we're never going to get married if we don't pick a date and plan a wedding" - so we picked a date and planned one. He guilted himself into buying me a 300.00 (50% off) placeholder ring a year before we got married, which I now wear as a right hand ring, but we did go all out for matched custom-designed wedding rings. For us, it felt better to emphasize the wedding rings and not the engagement one just for me. We did have 50+ people fly to a fun city that none of us lived in, but close enough that we planned everything on weekend trips, which worked well. It was basically a really kickass party that started with some vows I have followed your journey for long enough that I have every confidence you and your OH will do exactly what suits you two best! I am excited to follow along on here!

A secret wedding is super exciting! That dress is gorgeous

Hope you're able to get all the paperwork in time to have your wedding when you are hoping to.

I hope I'm not depriving OH of any desire to do a proposal, but I feel like I know him well enough to know he doesn't mind at all. I asked him last week if he would have liked it if I did the pregnancy test without him and then surprised him with it wrapped in a box, or a Liverpool onesie, or like I read one women did- a scavenger hunt. He looked at me as if I'd gone completely mad.

I've never wanted a (another) engagement ring, so since we're skipping, or at least keeping quiet about, the engagement part, that's one way of avoiding it without anyone looking at my finger and wondering why I don't have one.

I think my Hubster and your OH would get along famously! Have you put any thought into your wedding rings? I'm not a huge jewelry person, I swear, but for some reason - I made a huge deal out of the wedding rings and still love them two years later (even though we seriously had to order a replacement for Hubster who lost his back in May).

Thanks! That looks nice! I like the idea of doing it at a hotel or with a package company where they can just sort out everything including a photographer, a bouquet and witnesses.

I have a friend who grew up in Gibraltar so I'm going to ask her for tips too about nice places to go.

I imagine OH will want the simplest and most comfortable ring possible. I have a friend who makes jewellery, so I always imagined having her design something, but not sure what I like yet! Something delicate looking.
