- Wedding: August 2013
My name’s Amanda & I’m new to the weddingbee world! I wanted to make my first blog to introduce myself & tell you about my wonderful engaged life, but as short as possible.
I’m from New Jersey, I’m 26 years young & my fiancé’s name is Eric, he is 3 months older, but was a year older in school. We first met in high school, (on the same school bus) on 9/11/01. (What a day that was! I met the love of my life & the World Trade Center was attacked.) It took us a couple years to officially date but we did; we dated in high school & the first couple years in college. I guess you could say we took some time apart to “see the world” (we try not to talk about our time apart).
In 2010, after many years of never running into each other, we got back in contact & started to date again. It was love at first sight all over again, the butterflies, the smiles all day long, everything. Exactly a year later, Eric proposed.

Although I’ve been engaged since October 16, 2011, I’m just now getting into the blogs & stuff. I figured I would try to make as many posts as I can about our destination wedding in Hawaii (hints the Aloha!) I’m in the middle of making the invitations & making welcome bags (OOT bags) so I will be sure to post pictures, links, ideas, & as much information as I can, because I know I’ve been stressed about these things! The Internet is suppose to be filled with great ideas with every thing written out with links & prices & details! Well, for me, it was hard. Pinterest, Etsy, Weddingbee, Wanelo, & TheKnot are my favorite websites that I have found the most help!
