So, after finding this fabulous site, I decided that not only can I benefit from all of the blogs but I plan to have a lot to contribute! I have recently become engaged (a month ago tomorrow) and I have already been swimming in wedding planning magazines, websites, and checklists.
My fiance, who I will refer to as Mr. TL, is in the USMC and will be deploying in May 2011. I have taken it upon myself to try to get all of the questions answered that I can while I still have him around! This has been a little irritating considering it’s more than a year away, but once he realized if he didn’t speak now he wouldn’t get the chance he jumped on board.
I look forward to the upcoming 16 months and have a lot of DIY projects (invitations, programs, and whatever else I decide to take on) ahead of me. YAY! I’m so excited. 🙂
What we know now: South Carolina wedding & reception, he’s in charge of honeymoon & he’s keeping it a surprise, 5 attendants for each of us, lots of family involved, SWORD ARCH!, annnddddd… little things here and there.

@Tiger Lilly: I just found this site too. My wedding isn’t until June 30th of 2012 but I have to plan everything as soon as possible because we are doing a wedding in the Smoky Mountains and everything books FAST. Anyway, I love all of the advice on this site. Have you chosen your colors yet? I had originally wanted Emerald green and Silver but everyone I talked to told me those were bad colors for a summer wedding. So confusing. I’m leaning toward Teal, Silver and Chocolate brown now.I’ve also been looking at websites with tutorials on building fresh or silk flower bouqets. Very pretty, cheap, and easy. Goodluck with your wedding and thank you and your fiance for the sacrifice you make for our country.

Welcome to WB! A surprise honeymoon sounds fantastic to me right about now. I think we are waiting a year and taking one for our anniversary and just doing a minimoon if anything right away. Honestly after the wedding I plan on crawling in to bed and not coming out for a few days 🙂
