Well, I saw that no one had done our Fives yet, so I decided to make some up, I've never done them before, so here we go!

1.) When did you know you were going to marry your Husband?

2.) When your Husband proposed, was it a complete surprise, or did you talk about it?

3.) Did you get the proposal you had always dreamed of? I know now, it's a dream, but when it happened, did it happen how you expected it to?

4.) What were your wedding colors?

5.) What were some of your favorite details of your wedding, and your favorite moment of your wedding?

1.) When did you know you were going to marry your Husband? The moment I realized I couldn't imagine my life without him in it.


2.) When your Husband proposed, was it a complete surprise, or did you talk about it? We'd discussed it. I knew he'd been ring shopping, but the exact timing was a total surprise.


3.) Did you get the proposal you had always dreamed of? I know now, it's a dream, but when it happened, did it happen how you expected it to? Not really, but it was still special. I was recouping from surgery, and he asked/presented ring while I was curled up on the couch in my jammies.


4.) What were your wedding colors? All the colors of spring.


5.) What were some of your favorite details of your wedding, and your favorite moment of your wedding? My DDs giving me away.

1.) When did you know you were going to marry your Husband?
*Within the first year.

2.) When your Husband proposed, was it a complete surprise, or did you talk about it?
*We had talked about it and had gone ring shopping in the summer. My rule was that I didn't want to be engaged until I was done with school so I figured the second after I got my diploma we'd be engaged. Instead, a month before my graduation he took me out for my birthday and that's when it happened. He told me there would be no more surprises so I thought 'he's not going to propose tonight' but I had to call him into the bathroom at the hotel to help me find the soap and I looked down and he had the ring "hidden" on his finger. We find the soap and I go out to the bed and he did it.

It wasn't a surprise because I knew it was coming. It was a surprise because I didn't know when or how.

3.) Did you get the proposal you had always dreamed of? I know now, it's a dream, but when it happened, did it happen how you expected it to?
*It was private and we were facing the skyline. The only thing that could have made it a dream was that I was more in the moment. I remember he got down on one knee and all but I can't remember the moment...I know everything before and after, just not the moment which makes me sad. I don't even know what he said :(

4.) What were your wedding colors?
*Black, white, silver and a teeny tiny amount of gold.

5.) What were some of your favorite details of your wedding, and your favorite moment of your wedding?
*I LOVED our cake. My favorite moment was either the reveal or our private last dance. Both times it was just the 2 of us and no one else, no drama and we could totally focus on us.

1.) When did you know you were going to marry your Husband?


~I came to the conclusion gradually but definitely by the time we'd been dating for 6 months, I knew that's the direction we were headed.


2.) When your Husband proposed, was it a complete surprise, or did you talk about it?


~We had been talking about it for at least a month seriously when he proposed. I had been ring shopping alone and let him know what I liked and we'd started planning our futures with that thought in mind.


3.) Did you get the proposal you had always dreamed of? I know now, it's a dream, but when it happened, did it happen how you expected it to?


~At the time it wasn't what I'd hoped for (a big, public display) but looking back it suits us much better that he proposed at home with just the two of us.


4.) What were your wedding colors?


~Cornflower blue and yellow


5.) What were some of your favorite details of your wedding, and your favorite moment of your wedding?


~I loved our cake. It was 15 tiers (!) arranged in a really cool design and was surprisingly affordable. We made our own guest book and that brings back lots of memories. It's hard to pick a favorite moment; I can remember greeting people after the ceremony and realizing that I'd been smiling so much all day that my face muscles were actually cramping up. LOL

Sorry I'm Late!

1.)WHEN DID YOU KNOW YOU WERE GOING TO MARRY YOUR HUSBAND?
We were High School Sweet Hearts. We broke up when I was around 20. Around 25, we reconnected, and it was like it was meant to be!

2.)WHEN YOUR HUSBAND PROPOSED, WAS IT A SURPRISE, OR DID YOU TALK ABOUT IT?
Well, one day I looked at him and said, "I'm ready to get engaged". He said, "UM, OK?'. LOL! Then we talked, and I said, I would want a long engagement, because I would want to finish remodeling the house, and I wanted to relish in it a bit, and not rush. He mentioned a rough timeline, and we did look at rings once or twice.

3.)DID YOU GET THE PROPOSAL YOU ALWAYS DREAMED OF? I KNOW NOW IT'S A DREAM, BUT WHEN IT HAPPENED, WAS IT WHAT YOU EXPECTED?
Well, it happened on Mothers Day, and I though that he might do that, but the night before we looked at rings, so I thought, no way. Turns out, I pointed at my engagement ring, I still don't know how he got it out of the store!! He proposed in the parking lot of the Marriott, (we went to brunch there, with both our Mom's) he did get down on one knee, and I was shocked, and so were our Mom's, everyone was so happy. It was perfect. I guess, I always pictured something more public, but it was perfect.

4.)WHAT WERE YOUR WEDDING COLORS?
Tiffany blue, and pink.

5.)WHAT WERE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE DETAILS OF THE WEDDING, AND YOUR FAVORITE MOMENT OF YOUR WEDDING?
Some of my favorite details about the wedding, was having an outside wedding, and having such a beautiful day, and the rose petals, down the grassy isle, and my flowers. I actually have a few favorite moments, walking down the isle with my Mom, and having her give me away. Us putting our rings on each others fingers, because, i felt married then. Then our first dance. Our friend sang it live, and it was just us, and so special.

It's been really nice reading these things from you Ladies! Isn't it funny, how we have such a perfect proposal in out heads, but then, when we get engaged, it's grandly perfect? That's how I feel at least. It sounds like you all feel the same way! :)

HUGS,

1.) When did you know you were going to marry your Husband? After we dated a month.

2.) When your Husband proposed, was it a complete surprise, or did you talk about it? It was a complete surprise. He knew I was ob searching and he proposed in the "employment" section of the paper. It was amazing and I still have the ad.

3.) Did you get the proposal you had always dreamed of? I know now, it's a dream, but when it happened, did it happen how you expected it to?
I just expected the "ask my Daddy" and then "get down on one knee" basic proposal so he exceeded that.

4.) What were your wedding colors? Light purple for the ladies and black tux for the guys.

5.) What were some of your favorite details of your wedding, and your favorite moment of your wedding? The videographer forgot he was taping and so my wedding video goes up to the ceiling during part of it. LOL
Second would be watching my gf fight over my bouquet like crazy ladies.
