Hi all! Just wanted to introduce myself, as I’ve been lurking around for a few weeks looking at everyone’s beautiful dresses and great ideas!
I’m 27, first wedding to a guy I met 5 years ago while working in London. We’ve tentatively set a date of March 24, 2012 for our wedding. I say tentative because my fiance is from South Africa, so we’ve got lots of visa issues to deal with and have been told not to make any definite plans until we have the visa in hand.
I’ve bought a dress (2 actually, but that’s a whole different story!) and bookmarked some pictures of things I like the look of. Because of our restrictions, it looks like traditional wedding venues won’t work for us, so I’m probably having it at a friend’s private farm. Is there anything else I should be working on? So excited to have found this site, as there are so many helpful people!!

Welcome and congrats! We’re almost date twins 🙂 If all goes as planned, your wedding is exactly a year from today. So exciting!
I think starting with the venue is a great idea. Once you’ve got that set, do whatever your heart desires. My FI and I have the venue, photographer, and DJ booked and are starting to look into flowers and cakes to get an idea for the budget. In my opinion, it’s never too early to start.
Best of luck!

Congrats! I hope the visa issues get worked out for you soon!
We picked our venue right after we finally settled on a date, so you’re on the right track!
Everyone on the site is really helpful, so always ask questions if you need to! 🙂

Yay! I’m excited to see so many date twins! I have been with my FI for about 6 1/2 years (we met when I was a freshman in college and he was a junior). We got engaged in August on my birthday. So far we have booked the big things. Now we are all about a year or less out! Yay!
