My mother is absolutely beside herself with joy :) As am I, obviously!

He proposed on Christmas Eve/Day with his mother's engagement ring which before that belonged to his dad's grandmother... a family heirloom! He said he was going to wait until Christmas morning but he was too excited, haha. And he managed to surprise me too!

No idea when the wedding will be, but I guess the planning starts here! What do I start with?

Congratulations! I know it's been a long time coming for you, and that ring is absolutely beautiful on it's own and the family history behind it makes it even more important! Congrats again :)

The first two things to do are pick a day, and a location. The wedding party, and what they're going to wear, and whatever, is pretty meaningless, if they don't have a place to go. :D

I don't know if they do bridal shows in the UK, but if they do, go to as many as you've got the time and budget for. Finding out how much you don't know is really eye opening.

Congratulations! Your ring is lovely, and how nice to have such a special one that's been in the family.

I'd start with setting a budget, then find a venue. Decide whether your ceremony will be in the same place as your reception. If not, if there's to be a church ceremony, you'll need to schedule that and coordinate it with the reception venue. The rest will fall into place once you have the date and location. Enjoy the process.

Oh wow, congratulations! That ring is by far one of the most beautiful I have ever seen!

My dad proposed to my mum with his grandmother's ring, she still comments how special it is, and how people comment even now because it's a little bit different to the usual ones people of her generation have. They've been married 30 years!
