Hello October 2011 brides! I’m so excited to be here. I thought I would use this to introduce myself and hopefully meet my “wedding twins”.
We have been dating for 4 years (the anniversary is this Sunday), he proposed in July 2010 in a park on my birthday, followed by a surprised dinner with my friends and mom. It was so romantic and thoughtful!
We are planning on a wedding in Chicago on 10/22/11. We secured our venue and are now working on a caterer and band. My fiance does enjoy being involved and making decisions with me (so far, we agree on everything), but he gets very busy with work and volunteering so I have been doing all the “leg work”.
So far, my biggest surprises are 1) I’m very nervous about dress shopping and I don’t know why. I like my body and like cloths, but HATE the attention and being someone’s “doll”. 2) he is the first generation in America so we are doing our best to incorporate his family’s traditions, but he doesn’t seem to know them very well, 3) my sister got engaged 1 month after me, we will be each other’s MOH so it can be tricky…
I would love to “meet” everyone.

Welcome!! And yes i am excited to hear more about your wedding planning as well! I love it when people incorporate both sides of the families traditions. It makes things very meaningful and sweet.
And as for dress shopping- try to have fun with it. You don’t need an entourage to pick out a dress either. Try on a bunch of styles, even ones you think you won’t like. Usually those on the ones you end up loving when you put them on!
