About the same time last year, I wrote about how I got engaged with Val, now my husband. Since I haven’t blogged about it here, allow me to share it with you…
My fiancé didn’t exactly sweep me off my feet with a sparkling diamond ring. But he brought his family to meet mine and asked my parents’ permission to marry me. That’s how we got engaged.
His parents and sister were abroad so I only had the chance to meet them late last year. Not long after, they met my family too. My boyfriend then was quite decided to marry me so he didn’t waste any time in bringing the two families together.
Everything went well. There weren’t any objections from my parents, given that they are very particular, if not strict, about my life decisions and my future. Everybody got along together well. There was laughter during lunch and a lot of talk about the wedding.
My fiancé and I have originally planned to get hitched on February 28th, 2010, Sunday. However, my brother, his father and sister will not be able to come home. So, we moved it to June 5th, 2010, Saturday. It has been agreed and scheduled in the church already.
If the original plan hasn’t changed, we would be getting married in a week’s time from now. But it’s OK. We can still wait a few more months.
Sounds pretty traditional, right? But that’s what the two families are and I’m happy enough that we all got along together well.
If you’re wondering why we previously wanted to get married on February 28th, it is because my parents were married on that date. In fact, they’re going to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary at the end of this month. Val and I are hoping that we’ll be there to celebrate with them.
Before I end this post, here’s our save-the-date photo.
