I live in Arizona but my FI lives in the bay area and we’re getting married there (ceremony in Palo Alto and reception in Saratoga). I’m out there about once a month working on wedding stuff, so I probably wouldn’t be around if there was a meetup. We haven’t figured out yet if I’m moving or if he’s moving, but if I end up there I’ll definitely need a new friend for shopping dates 🙂

Dang, I used to live in the Bay but now I’m an hour up past Sacramento. 🙁

Where in the Bay do you live? I am in the outer richmond neighborhood but I travel to the peninsula often for work. I’ve never been to a meet-up, but it might be fun!

@Nferrari:  Off topic, but I used to live in Richmond! Well, it was the Richmond/ El Sobrante area.

@MissCalifornia:  Wow are you me? I moved to the east bay a few months ago and I’m finding it really slow going to meet people also. And I work from home, which so doesn’t help. Is your SO in the computer industry? I’m a software engineer and his coworker situation sounds very familiar to me! I’m also a fellow not yet engaged bee.

Anyway, count me in for a possible meetup, or just to hang out!

Oooooh, hey I’m a lonely South Bay transplant who isn’t yet engaged as well! We’re in Sunnyvale, and I’d LOVE to do a meet-up! Maybe happy hour somewhere?

@4cube:  Wow, a female software engineer! I think there’s only 1 at my FI’s work, so I get what you mean about being surrounded by guys all the time. Whereabouts do you live in the bay?

@Nferrari:  East of Berkeley – like in Walnut Creek area. I admit I sometimes wish I lived on the peninsula but SO totally LOVES it out here. So for now I just suck it up for the 40 minute trip into the city, haha.

Sounds like we should do this! Sometime in August maybe? Since we’re all pretty spread out maybe we should stick to a weekend.

@4cube:  a weekend in August sounds like a great idea!

 

Any ideas for where? I have no idea where people normally do these meetups…

@MissCalifornia:  I’m going to be out there the weekend of August 9th. I don’t know what we have planned yet (we’ve been fitting in catering tasting appointments to all my visits), but if there’s a meet up I’ll see if I can fit it in. My FI lives in Daly City, but we’re also down south a lot because his sister lives in Sunnyvale and we’re getting married in Palo Alto with the reception in Saratoga, so all of our caterer appointments have been down that way as well.

@MissCalifornia:  Yay!

I’m in favor of meeting in SF, and August 10 works for me.

I vote ladies only, purely because I don’t relish suggesting to my SO that he should go with me to meet internet wedding strangers. Hahaha 😛
