I’ll join, even though I am probably a looong way away from engagement. πŸ™

1. Some day in the future.

2. It will probably be just long enough.

3. Four years (by my watch) in a week!  4.5 by his… I don’t know when.

4. That will be figured once I have a job.  I can’t see it being terribly expensive.

5. I’m not certain.  Probably a lot, it seems more personal to do it that way.

  • Wedding: September 2011

1. what’s your wedding date – 9/10/11

2. how long was your engagement – not “officially” engaged, but I’m guessing it will be at least a year long engagement

3. how long have you been dating – 9 months

4. what budget are you trying to stay within – since we’re also buying a house while planning this wedding, our wedding budget is hopefully sticking between $10,000 and $15,000. 

5. and how much stuff are you diy’g? – As much as I can fit into my schedule.  I know for sure I’m designing the entire wedding, but I may not have time to actually make everything.  I’ll likely DIY 50-60% of the wedding

6. what part of the country are you located in?! – San Francisco Bay Area

  • Wedding: November 2010

1. what’s your wedding date – December 4, 1995.   Hubby and I are renewing our vows on November 27, 2010 on the eve of our 15th wedding anniversary.

2. how long was your engagement.   So long ago I don’t remember.  HA! HA!

3. how long have you been dating.  We dated for 3 years before we got married.

4. what budget are you trying to stay within.  Hubby says $20,000 but I think that is wishful thinking.

5. and how much stuff are you diy’g?  Not a damn thing . . . don’t have the patience, the creativity or the time. . .Buying stuff or paying for other people’s DIY stuff is modern form of DIY and that should count for something.

6. what part of the country are you located in?!  Just like another country – Dallas, Texas . . .Howdy y’all!!!

@crebre I am so excited! Well since its so close to Christmas and the families will be together we do not have anything planned at the moment for afterwards. So we may wing it Wink As far as a honeymoon we want to go to Puerto Rico after the bigger wedding so for now I have 2 comped rooms at Harrah’s Casino in Atlantic City! So after the wedding and the pics we are going down for 2 nights and will be back by Christmas Eve.

FYI I still do not know what I am doing with my hair for my wedding. I will be getting micros and need any suggestions please!
