Finally Engaged!

I met my boyfriend a little over 7 years ago while I was in college. We dated, we lived together, we separated, we became friends, then we dated again and now we are engaged. Our relationship has been a process, yet I would do it all over again. This has allowed us to really know each other and figure out what we want from our relationship. I have fallen all over in love with my fiancé and it is one of the most beautiful things I have ever felt. We still haven’t decided on a wedding date but we have talked about what we want it to look like.

I want a small, private ceremony. He wants a big Mexican fiesta so our extended family can party. I want to get married near my hometown, he wants to get married in the Tampa Bay area. I want to wear a cocktail dress but he wants to see me in a big wedding dress. I want a DJ and he wants a mariachi band. We always joke about what our party might look like but we haven’t talked about any serious plans. I am not in a hurry to plan a wedding party, I just want us to enjoy our engagement as much as possible.

Marriage was the last thing on my mind when he proposed to me. My only goal this year is to start going back to school in the fall. Yet, he decided to ask for my hand in marriage while we were in one of the most beautiful and historical places in Mexico City. I have added a link that can help you plan your trip to Xochimilco.  We hope that you have an opportunity to visit the ancient place of the Aztecs and experience the magical ride on a trajinera.


How to Plan your Engagement, according to my Beau

  1. Buy a ring that fits her style and personality
  2. Select a date and location
  3. Plan a trip to your selected location
  4. Get things ready before you get on your knees
  5. Reach out to friends and family to help out or attend
  6. Don’t get cold feet
