Welcome new-bees and previous lurkers! This is the thread to introduce yourselves so that we can get to know you better.
Tell us what stage of wedding planning you are at and a little about yourself.
I won’t bore you with anything about myself this week 😉
Bonus question of the week:What is your favorite (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) drink.
For me right now, the answer would have to be Jamba Juice Carribean Passion smoothie with energy boost! (Now I want one)!

I like Buffalo Wild Wings’ Bahama Mama, but only because my brother likes to make fun of my behavior from the time I had it last!!
Welcome to our newbees!!

Ironically, I don’t think I’ve introduced myself on one these! What a bad bee I’ve been…
I’m an island girl in love with an industry (movie-industry) guy, so we’re planning a Catholic/Disney wedding in June & a Hawaii reception in December. I’m super in LOVE with WB & all the supportive, energetic bees here.
Can’t wait to get to know you newbees!
Favorite drink: Harney & Sons’ Hot Cinnamon Spice Tea – yummy black tea that is sooo flavorful it requires no sweetener. mmm…

Mmmm my favorite drink is a blue margarita!!! (something blue for our drink menu at the reception)
Got engaged to my hunny of just over a year Dec 13th, the wedding will be an outdoor affair (with camping accomadations for our overnight guests at the ceremony/reception venue)
So lets all hope for fantastic dry weather on June 25th 2011!
Just started planning, really, but I have a lot done and a lot of projects to look forward to in the summer!
Loooove this website, so glad my Future Sister-In-Law gave me the link!

Welcome tarahartman- I was an outdoor wedding girl myself! Many of our guests camped 🙂

I’ve been here for about a month i guess but I don’t suppose I’ve introduced myself.
Though we’ve recently reset our wedding date to 1-1-11 we’ve been down this road before and postponed(family pressure on me). It’s hard for me to make our date official as I’m paranoid about it, so only family and the bridal party know at this point. So basically I have more figured out then the average bride who just set her date. Our colors are Navy and Pink (hence my avatar) and we’re honoring our Scottish/Irish heritage with him wearing a kilt, a wishing pool, and handfasting.
I’m a 21 student to be, after recieving my dad’s GI bill I will resume my college. I plan on going for a bachlors in pre-vet which will lead me to vet school. I still live with my parents, and I help with my grandmother who is begining the last stage of Alzhiemers.
Fiance and I have a business together that we started over a year ago. Fiance is 25. The most interesting thing about “us” is the size difference. I’m 4ft 8/9 (dunno) and he is 6ft 2in so I happen to look about 15 and he looks about 30, so I’m constantly asked about “my dad” and he about “his daughter”. Imagine the looks we get when we display some PDA. 😉 We have been together 4yrs in Feb and engaged for 3 once again in Feb. The 2nd most intresting thing about us: he’s taking my last name
My favorite food is Mexican and favortie non-alchy drink is IBC Root Beer. My favorite past time aside from wedding planning (I’m a wedding junkie) is to be with my dogs, spend time with Fiance, and reading. I’m the proud parent of many animals but Fiance and I have 2 of our own Daisy (husky mix, 1yr old) and Georgia (chocolate lab, 15wks). They both live with me.

Hello All! I have recently become obsessed with weddingbee just this week! We are getting married August 13th and have been engaged 7 months…dating for 7 years! 🙂 Originally we planned on having our wedding in 2011 but decided that was too long…so 4 weeks ago the major planning began. So far I am a DIY bride but I am quickly finding out how much goes into wedding planning. And to answer the question… I love a good glass of red wine.

I actually signed up a few weeks ago, but never posted in a thread like this yet nor formally introduced myself
I was always embarrassed to let any of you girls know that I wasn’t even engaged yet so that’s why I been keeping kind of low key the first couple weeks,but then realized a lot of you were not engaged yet. So…..
Currently NOT engaged,yet we did agree on a date…well I came up with it and he just nodded his head. It’s not a for sure thing thoug,but I would like to get most of my planning out of the way since I want a winter wedding. Basically if he proposes to me in lets say..August, I wont scramble trying to get everying planned with in just a few months. We have been dating for 4 yrs now. Sooooooooo READY to get married already.
I found this site by google images. Anytime I saw a great picture it was always linked to this site. I figured…might as well sign up and just have access to all the great ideas whenever!
I work at U.S. Bank for the H.A.M.P. program which is government sponsered so if anyone ever needs advice on modifying your home loan Im more than welcome to help out.
Thanks to everyone for being soooo fantastic so far! And I can’t wait until I can post a pic of my ring!

I’ve been a lurker for quite a while but thought it was finally time to sign up and introduce myself 😀
My boy and I have been together since August 2004 when I was 18 and he was 19. We have been living together since the end of 2004. We are not yet officially engaged (although the ring is hidden SOMEWHERE in the house…no idea where though and it is taking all of my strength NOT to search for it- funny thing is that I actually signed for the package when it arrived!). We have already started planning our wedding though which is going to be 2nd April 2011, which is autumn over here is Australia. We are planning a laid back and super chilled out wedding- no formal sit down meals, etc., just lots of awesome finger food, alcohol, dancing and fun!
I am pretty laid back and ‘go with the flow’. I love all things bright pink and this will most definitely be a HUGE colour included in the day, along with orange and lime green.
My favourite drinks are COCKTAILS! Oh and Advocaat and lemonade….and rasberry vodka and coke. Ok I just realised I could make a huge list right here but I will spare you all the list (partly because it make me realise how much of an alco I am) 😀
I will end my mini-essay here and I look forward to sharing my ring, planning, ups and downs with you all!

Hi! I just joined a couple of days ago and I wished that I had found this site long ago! I’m less than 2mos away from my wedding so I’ve already chosen the venue, food, cake, photographer, dj, dress, bm dresses, tuxes, etc etc. I just sent the invites a couple of weeks ago and I’m already getting rsvps back which is exciting!!!! I just have little things left to do like get my bm gifts, my jewelry, put together the seating chart once all the rsvps are in… and some other stuff I can’t think of. OH and we have to PAY FOR everything!!haha! And I’m working on losing a couple lbs and toning up my body so i’ll look fab in my dress! I LOVE this site there are so many amazing helpful ladies and fun ideas. I always want to talk about my wedding and other weddings 24/7 and here I feel like it’s actually ok! I don’t feel like i’m annoying anyone with tiny details because everyone is just as wedding crazy as me!
My favorite non-alcoholic drink is chocolate milk! My favorite alcoholic drink is malibu rum with pineapple juice.. yummy!

I’m Sarah and I’m 22 and from the UK, have been lurking for a few weeks but have now bitten the bullet and joined. Like Wendy I’m also not officially engaged but OH and I have set a date for December this year and have started planning- neither of our parents were ever engaged even at all so I’m not overly fussed about a long engagement, that said would like some bling at some point 😀
My OH is a musician in the royal marines so we’ve been long distance for a year and half and I’m hoping to move to be with him in July, I have a job interview TOMORROW (I’m on here to put off preparing! hehe) which should make that possible!
We’re hoping to get married in Norfolk (thats the east coast of the UK) in December, but the parents are being fairly stressy as the UK ground to a halt with snow this year after christmas, and we’re aiming for the 28th or 29th!! So fingers crossed for a milder winter!
My favourite drink is a bison grass Mojito- yum yum yum.

@sarahbean: I love Mojitos, too, but I’ve never heard of a bison grass Mojito…what is it?
