- Wedding: October 2011
Hello Boston Bees!
I live just outside of Boston MA, and my wonderful boyfriend (now fiance) and I have recently gotten engaged! I am so happy to be able to spend the rest of my life with him by my side as partners in crime.
Sidenote, here is my new ring! I’ve never worn a ring in my life so wearing it took a little getting used to, but now after just 2 weeks I feel like something is missing when I take it off. I REALLY didn’t expect anything this big and was totally surprised – he hit it WAY out of the park I think!
I’m not a very formal person (although I am VERY social) and really want something different, so I am thinking either a summer camp (renting a sleep away camp for a weekend so everyone can come and stay in cabins) or a barn wedding. Also, as an only child with a VERY small family who has lived in about 10 places since finishing high school, I have a lot of really close friends. What am I getting at? My bridesmaid list has been cut all it can be, at I’m looking at 10 people. I’m happy with this, and my friends are my world. Right now I am trying to think of how to ask them all (as they live all over the country). I am leaning towards using the Wedding Chicks DIY template on bright turquoise note cards and mailing them all with a personal note:
What do you all think? I know 10 is a lot, but really, they are all that important to me. We are thinking of August or Sept 2011, and this is going to be a pretty heavy DIY wedding because we are paying for it ourselves.
Well, I think that’s all for now – I’m exicted to be here!
