Just got engaged yesterday! The ring was his mom''s, the diamond is a family stone. The center stone measures 6mm, and that''s all I know about it aside from it being an old European cut.

We're getting married at the end of October.

I tried to load an idealscope image, but there was a problem.


He proposed while we were in Cafe Reggio in the Village, in NYC. We had gone for an amazing breakfast at Toast in Harlem, and then to the MOMA, and were warming up with some coffee and hot chocolate, and he proposed. I made him ask three times before I said yes.

Melissa -

i live in NY also - so i know this was a great venue combo for your very special day! i''ve read your posts in the LIW site, and i''m just so pleased for you!

and i''m glad you''re not waiting ages to tie the knot! i sometimes wonder how much people really want to be married when i hear about these 18 month + engagements. tim and i got engaged in april (25 years ago) and were planning on a 12 month engagement. we lasted 5 :)

please - post details as your plans get firmed up; being an australian who regularly used to help her girlfriends organize their weddings back home, i''d love to hear what people do for their weddings in NY.

and let me say again - i love that elegant setting!

yay!

The wedding is actually going to be in NJ, but only about 15 minutes from the city. The ceremony will take place outside in a gazebo, cocktail hour in one room, and then the reception in the grand ballroom. The festivities start half an hour before the wedding, and the guests will be greeted with champagne, mimosas, belini''s and coffee. Should have a few buzzed before I even come down the isle!
