I was 24 and Andrew was 26
Andrew proposed to me
It was the first night of our holiday in Tunisia. We had booked a beautiful all includive holiday as a treat for us and he couldnt wait so proposed on the first night (or he was too scared of me finding the ring box in his sock in his suitcase)
Both mine and Andrews family all knew he was planning on proposing while we were there and my family had bets on which night it would happen. Both our parents and my sister & brother in law were in Turkey so we made phone calls to all those and then we text all our friends to tell them our news. The first people we told face to face were a couple we had met during dinner that night
A beautiful antique emerald cut diamond ring, 18ct white gold and 1/2 carat.
I spotted it about 12 months before he proposed. I instantly fell in love with it. As it was antique there was only one of that kind and I kept checking the shop when I went past to see if it was still there and then one day it was gone and I was heartbroken, little did I know who had bought it!
He was going to wear a Bvlagari one he had chosen but he has since decided he would like it for his wedding ring so I bought him a watch instead
Yes, we are having it in a couple of weeks
It will be held at a local club where Andrew comes from
Not really other than deep purple (the colour not the band) and silver. My outfit fits with the colour scheme too

Planning all the little details like the place cards, seating plans, flowers etc
