Laurens Getting Married - 15th June 2013


I wanted to wait to start my journal but i couldnt hold back!

My names Lauren and im 21 and ive been with Robert whose nearly 24 since Christmas eve 2009!



We have a gorgeous little boy called Bobby who is 1 next month!




The Engagment

So getting to the engagement!! It was my 21st Birthday in February and we decided to go to Manchester to go shopping (this was my present of OH) so just the 2 of us went off and went for a day of shopping then back to the hotel, OH told me that i could have my presents that night as we would be up and out early on my actual birthday so i was all excited, he told me to get ready to go out then i could have them! I got all ready and got all excited for my presents! He told me to go and wait in the bathroom as he need to set up what him and Bobby had done! (He told me before that him and Bobby had done me something so i thought they'd made me a card, when he said he needed to set it up i thought ohh maybe its a birthday banner )
I could hear music playing and he told me to come out, on the bed was a heart in rose petals with an envelope in the middle, he told me to open it and read it out. He had wrote a poem all about us and how when we met for my birthday he took me to manchester and to the same hotel and was saying if i would marry him, i couldnt read it as i was crying to much, he then got down on one knee and asked me to marry him
The music playing was a song list he had made with all songs about love/marriage etc, he had champayne on ice, he had everything!!

It was perfect and so thoughtful!!

I thought I'd edit the first post to add our new little addition to the family who is due 29th January

The Date


26th July 2014



We've chosen this date so we have plenty of time to save and also we're TTC so hopefully we'll have another baby by then! We knew we wanted July and a Saturday so we literally said the dates and picked one

Thought I'd update with a new ticker with our real date

15th June 2013

Congratulations on your engagement! Your engagement ring is gorgeous! Very unusual, I love it. I was 21 in february and my OH is nearly 24 too We're (hopefully) getting married in September 2013. Bobby is adorable, is he going to be a pageboy?

Have you looked at any venues yet? Or decided on a colour scheme?

Thank you
Ohh how strange
Exciting, do you have a journal?
Thank you very much, yes he will be, he'll be 3 so i cant wait to see him all dressed up like his Daddy!
Will your LO be pageboy when he arives?

We've been looking at venues online but everything seems soooo expensive! We're booked in to view one in a few weeks but i think its going to be way out of our budget!

We've booked in to go see a venue on Tuesday called Nailcote Hall. Its the place we both said we'd love to have (just from looks on the outside as neither of us have been inside before) its over budget but we were hoping we might be able to knock them down a bit/do bit ourselves etc but since then we've been told their not helpful and when they get you there tell you you have to have everything from them and you cant have on thing without the other etc so we're not holding our hopes!!



I feel like ive looked at every venue possible up to half a hour drive away from where we live and everywhere is soooo expensive!! Im now trying to think of places that arent big wedding venues or places that the main focus isnt on weddings but im not having much luck

I haven't wrote on here in ages mainly because we're stuck on the date at the minute!
OH is due to come into some inheritance money as sadly his uncle past away over easter and as both of us desperately want to get married next year OH has said we will use that money is he gets it soon but obviously he has no clue when he'll be getting it so we are kind of left waiting to see if we can move the date to next year, hopefully 13th July 2013 the day before OHs birthday so we can celebrate that too!

It's so hard just looking at things, I really want to get booking but it's all a waiting game sadly!!

Eeekkkkk I'm sooooo excited, we have decided to get married next year as we will have the money to do so!! I'm so so happy!

I can finally get into planning now!

We're going to view a venue tomorrow, it's called The Heart of England conference and events centre! I've heard lots and lots of good things about the place but have no clue what it's really like! They don't have many pictures online and when we've drove up you can't get into where the weddings are held! Heres the link below

http://www.heartofengland.co.uk/inde...the_midlands/1

We're hoping for the date 13th July 2013, I love the date With the 13's and also it's the day before OHs birthday so it can all run into one! I asked the venue what dates they have and they have this one so it will all be a case of is it as good as people say and what's the price!!

We were TTC but now we've decided to put it on hold until we get married and try again!
