Hello everyone. Just wanted to say "HI!" I am a newly engaged 2013 bride and looking for ideas, support, and all that jazz! I'd love to make some friends on here.
I am in CT and my fiance is in CA (very sad ) but fortunately the wedding will be in CA (where I call home).
Any other central CA brides? Law student brides? Lawyer brides? Heck...anyone at all who wants to be friends...I'd love some buddies! :)
@lawbride88: Hey lady! We've have the same wedding date! If you want to see what's going on with other August 2013 brides, there's a special board here. http://boards.weddingbee.com/board/august-2013
I'm none of the things you listed... Wyomingite, post-grad school and now a wildlife biologist... but I'll still be your buddy! :)
Yay! Thank you. It's so exciting. Do you have your dress? Your colors picked out? Your bridesmaids notified? I have done none of the above but I do have ideas--too many of them!
@lawbride88: Yup pretty exciting! When did you get engaged? I did in the end of July. Wanna see my ring? Sure you do! It was my great-grandmother's :) How about yours?
I do have a dress... it's a pretty simple stretchy lace sheath from Macy's. We're having a somewhat casual outdoor wedding, so I think it'll be perfect. (I'm not a big poofy dress girl at all.) Colors are going to be turquoise, yellow, coral, peach. Lots of colorful paper lanterns and wildflowers everywhere. Our bridal party is just going to be my sister and his sister and brother... we haven't talked to em yet about it but will over the holidays.
How bout you? Do you have your venue reserved? Seems like that's the first thing to get accomplished, and it gives you an idea of everything else. That and a budget of course. These suckers are pricey!
Awww how pretty. Did he ask permission from your parents and they gave it to him?
I got engaged on the 17th of November. So not that long ago. We know where we are having it but need to reserve the date and put down our deposit--we will do that the week that I return to CA.
My colors are pale green/black/white as of right now but it changes weekly. haha.
My ring is here:
We've been together a long time but haven't wanted to get married until we felt all settled down with a house and careers (I'm 30, he's 32). So he's known my parents foreve, and he knew I definitely wanted this ring for sentimental and financial reasons, rather than a new one. So anyway yeah, he went to my parents not necessarily ask their permission, but to ask their blessing. And then was like, "Um, can I grab that ring?" Haha. They were super thrilled :)
love it! That's fantastic. Any kids in the near future?
We're going to start trying for kids in a couple years. I'll be kinda old but we've had a bit of a delayed adolescence so we're just getting into our careers now ... gotta save up some money. (Plus I'll probably have to quit my job cause I travel alllll the time.)
How long have you two been together? Are you long distance for a while? Been there, done that, it sucks!
Hello I am not a date twin a state twin or a job twin... But I am a fellow student (going to school for social work) and I am only 1 state up from Cali lol!
I am getting married the weekend before you! YAY!
What do you have done already? I could not imagine trying to plan from out of state... That must be hard! Are you moving back to Cali before the wedding?
Hey! I got engaged a month ago to my SO/FH of five and a half years. We are finally going to be Mr. and Mrs. in early August.
We are having a very private, no frills wedding -- just me, him, a photographer, and perhaps my FSIL & FBIL. We are doing it either where we live (WA) or in Hawaii for a little destination wedding and minimoon. This will have to be decided this winter. I am planning on buying my wedding dress in April, and hiring a photographer in February -- and that is pretty much it for us.
We were together for ~ a year. Not long but when you KNOW you KNOW! We will have been together for a decent amount of time come wedding day.
@elle--I kind of wanted the destination wedding thing but my FH's family wants to be there!
Congratulations and welcome to the August 2013 boards! I live in central
@elle_z: You are my date twin, from Wa also! Cool. :)
@Araya: Cool! Where in WA?
hello, I'm not a date twin but I am doing the long-distance planning thing which at times feels a bit insane. I live in Rome (Italy not Georgia!) but will be getting married in Oxford so am trying to go back & forwards between here and the UK.
@lolot I love your ring, it's beautiful! so great having a meaningful ring - mine was my FI's mother's engagement ring, she passed when he was 15 so I was really honoured when FI's dad asked us if we'd like to use it.
@elle_z: @Araya: Yay Washington August 2013!!! Me too!
@lawbride88: Welcome! And congrats! It's going to be a good 9-ish months!!!
@NowDontLetsBeSilly: I see you're in Seattle -- +1 for Emerald City (and today's random weather). We should all have a Seattle meetup!
@Spangles: I'm long distance planning too! I'm in South Korea and getting married in Pennsylvania. We lose out on a lot of the fun wedding planning stuff, unfortunately, but I'm really looking forward to a U.S. vacation. Our "honeymoon" is going to be spent hanging out with friends and family that we never get to see haha.
@Firemansgirl: Whereabouts? I'm from the Modesto area but FI lives in Fresno.
@lawbride88: im in the modesto area!! How crazy :)
@elle_z: In my little town in Snohomish, originally and Eastside girl. You still think destination wedding?
@NowDontLetsBeSilly: Congrats! I didn't think there were so many of us. :)
Hello everyone! I am surprised not to see more Aug.31.
I have been with my fiance for over 7 years and we got engaged last February. I am getting married at my home (200+ people in my backyard, eep!) in NB Canada.
Some days I think I am ahead of the game in planning and other days I panic that i don't have any where near enough done.
@lawbride88: i'm getting married a week before you! and my ring is very similar to yours!
we only dated about 10 months before he proposed in july. we have a lot of the big things finalized, and are slowly working through details. we're each in 2 weddings before our own (yup, that means 4 weddings in the next 8 and a half months), so we're trying to stay ahead of the game so that our wedding doesn't get pushed aside.
@juliebean816: Wow! Thats a lot but it allows you to see where other people messed up and make yours that much better!
@lawbride88: haha so true! we've already been to one wedding (that makes 6 in a year, if you're counting) and agreed on a lot of things NOT to do! sometimes that's more helpful!
Central California in the house! Woop Woop! I am a graduate student and FI is a basketball coach at the local JC. We are getting married in Northern California! So excited! Glad I have a fellow Cali Bee!
@LBeeLove: how cool that there's a few central Cali brides!! Where are you having your weddiing?!
@Firemansgirl: I know! Super cool! We are getting married in Chico because that's where we met, went on our first date, and got engaged! It only seems right to get married there!
Sorry, not a SO Cal bride or lawyer/law bride. I am an August 2013 bride though. Welcome to the bee!
@lawbride88: law student bride here!
@cantonbride: Sweet! Will you have graduated by the time you get married?
@LBeeLove: What town?
@lawbride88: I currently live in Fresno now! Initially we decided to get married in 2014, but moved the wedding up to 2013 becase with FI being a coach and me graduating in May 2013, we're not sure where we will be this time next year. I was definitely not into the idea of potentially planning a Cali wedding from another state. Uh uh not me!
@LBeeLove: Seriously?!?! I'll be in Fresno in 6 days! :) We could totally grab coffee or something!
@lawbride88: No way!!!! That's so cool! What brings you to Fresno??? For sure! That would be awesome! I need some wedding buddies because let's just face it...sometimes, friends just don't understand, lol!
@LBeeLove: FI is in Fresno, I live in CT for law school. My mom also lives in Fresno..she lives near Fashion Fair and FI lives closer to Riverpark.
@LBeeLove: aww that's awesome!!! I have tons of family in chico!
@lawbride88: Oh I seeee! That's crazy! What a small world! I literally live 3 minutes from Fasion Fair!!! I can totally run there, lol! Are you almost done with school??
@Firemansgirl: Cool! Chico is a pretty small town, so I may know of have bumped into one of your family members! I did my undergrad at Chico and I met my FI while he was working on his Master's there. His parents live in Chico, and hopefully one day we will own a cute little home there! :)
I have 17 months till graduation. I cannot wait for it to be over!!
