Engagement Ring

Hello fellow J-Landers!  I have been busy doing things that brides-to-be have to do.  There are so many last minute things!  Even simple things that can't be forgotten, such as picking up nylons and packing and such.  And wow, there is going to be a lot of things that need to be done after the wedding!  But I need to just enjoy myself during my wedding day and honeymoon and not worry about what needs to be done after the honeymoon until I get back from it.  Just three more days to go.  By the time you read this (Thursday morning), it will be just two more days til the wedding!

I realized that I never showed you a pic of my engagement ring.  It is a tanzanite flanked by diamonds.  John proposed to me while I was on the computer, lol.  He got down one one knee and proposed to me while I was on the computer!  I don't know if I was writing an entry or reading one.  Now you know how addicted I am.    Here is the ring:

            

Let me see what I can tell you about the wedding.  Well, not a lot.  Can't tell you about my dress, lol, because certain people read this journal, lol.  And I can't tell you about the flowers either.  But I will show and tell when I get back from the honeymoon. 

John helped me pick out the music so I will tell you what songs we are going to have for the wedding:

Prelude:
Sheep May Safely Graze - Johann Bach
Pachaelbel's Canon - J. Pachelbel
Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring - Johann Bach
two songs sung by soloist - her choice of songs

Processional:
Trumpet Voluntary in D Major

Recessional:
Ode To Joy (from the 9th Symphony) - Ludwig Van Beethoven

Presentation of flowers to the Blessed Mother
Ave Maria - Franz Schubert

Well, that's about it for now.  I will tell you more about the wedding after it is over and I can let the cat out of the bag, lol.  John doesn't even want to know the color theme.  He doesn't know what color Val's dress is yet.  Val is my Maid-of Honor, of course. 

Well, talk to you soon.  Please pray for me that I don't want to be a runaway bride!  Just kidding!  I am very happy right now. Love, Krissy :)

  12. The ring is beautiful and it`s an excellent choice of music.  The ` Trumpet Voluntary` was played at Princess Diana`s wedding to Charles and I thought it was perfect for the occasion, so my daughter used it for her own wedding.  Take care Krissy.  :-)   Sandra xxx

    I got goosebumps reading this Krissy, I'm so excited for you and John!!  The ring is beautiful, and I'm sure that John's proposal was very romantic, it doesn't matter where you were or what you were doing, it will always be a very special memory for you.  I know your day will be perfect, just remember to relax and enjoy.  Can't wait to see pics!  Wishing you both every happiness always :o)

  17. Beautiful ring!! I love tanzanite! As for your wedding music...talk about de ja vu! Except for the first selection...I had ALL THE REST OF THOSE played at my wedding too!! LOL Good taste. Make sure someone takes loads of pictures (trust me, you will be too busy to think about it...assign someone to be in charge of candids).  Can't wait to hear the details when you get back! Good luck!
