- Wedding: October 2013
Hello everyone. I have been lurking for a while and decided that y’all seemed real cool so I figured I would introduce myself. I was posting on a different forum and then my mom started reading that forum too (I had mentioned the website to her because I had found a vendor through it, so it was my fault)… now, I love my mother, but I felt like I needed a place where I didn’t always have to wonder who was reading. So… here I am!
I live in Milwaukee (any other wisconsin brides out there??) and am getting married 10/12/2013. My Fiance and I got engaged in June, and we had been together a little over 4 years at the time. The planning started out a little slow- but now that we are almost to the year out mark, things are picking up and we are getting a lot more done. We have a church and a reception venue, the priest, a band, a DOC and a caterer. I also found my dress (!) Our reception venue is a really beautiful old building that actually used to be a bank (big safes still in the wall! cool!) We are very inspired by the venue so we are going for an art deco vibe and also hope to incorporate some cool historical aspects of our city. (old pictures, maps, etc). The girls will be in dark teal and the accent color is metalic copper, and the flowers will be dark red.
We’re both super excited to be officially hitched, and throw a big formal party while we’re at it. Now, since I’ve seen so many “ring” posts on here (which I love, btw. I love seeing such great bling!) I figured I would share mine. I am so SO happy with it- he picked it out with just a little bit of help from my Maid/Matron of Honor and he couldn’t have done better. People keep asking me if it’s antique, which I love. it has a total of about a carat of diamonds, and the center stone is a little over .5.
That’s all I got for now, but i’m sure you’ll be hearing more from me. I’m pretty chatty! 🙂
