    OT - She said yes!

    I asked the gf to marry me this weekend while we were in the Ozarks, and she said yes! We are going to get hitched down there next year!

    Anyone have any suggestions for us as to a good spot to do it?

    You could always do it on a boat and upon completion, sink the boat as a symbol of where your life is headed.

    Seriously though, congrats.

    Let's see, how childish and stupid do I want to get with this question...

    NOT a church wedding. Go to an all inclusive resort in the Caribbean or Mexico. Let them handle everything, I really wished we had done that. Cheaper and much less of a hassle, and no one really cares about the wedding other than your future wife.

    Let's hope she stays truer than an Iowa State recruit!

    Kidding aside, major congratulations! I've never spent much time in the Ozarks but it seems like a perfect place for asking the question and having a wedding.

    Nope, neither one of us is overly religious, even though we both believe in Jebus.

    We just want it to be a weekend were everyone has fun without having to worry about all the traditional wedding etiquette.

    Re: OT - She said yes!

    Congrats.... I just had my wedding a few weeks back. Having your wedding at a location like that will be 10x less stress then having it in a home town.

    We were thinking of doing the same thing. I proposed in Lake Michigan and we were thinking about marrying there with an open reception sometime back home. Obviously her family hit the veto button and had it in her home town instead, just because they are big catholics and wanted the church to recognize it.

    Alot of stress then followed.

    My advice would be to do what you want, and have fun.
