The big one. January 2012. Hopefully kept a secret from Yasha until the very moment we check-in at the airport.
Also, wedding rings have been chosen. We went and had a look yesterday, and came to a decision on what we wanted. We're going to go and get measured (and pay) for them next Tuesday, after we've been to see Tron at the Waterloo IMAX.
My only mild disappointment on that front is that I really like the additional yellowness that comes with an 18 carat ring, as opposed to a 9 carat ring. But 18 carat rings are silly expensive, so that was always a no go. :-p
I prefer hematite rings myself. Phil and Kaja Foglio use them as wedding bands, and have a large box of extras for when they inevitably shatter. They say there is something... right about them having wedding rings that can explode. =^-^=
For anyone who is interested it looks as though my mum is close to an agreement over the menu for the wedding. One that won't cost us a fortune and it's gonna be a buffet like we wanted. See what you guys think.

We are thinking of pushing for a third main choice, possibly gammon steak or other form of pig. Lol
It's all starting to feel really close now with the rings and now the menu. *squeal girlishly*
Point one: something done messed up your link. There's an ending break tag caught in it. Point two: I'd laugh but I can't shake the feeling that that comic is almost exactly how it'd go down if I ever got married.
