I love reading all the replies!  Here goes…

  1. When is your wedding date? Friday, August 10, 2012
  2. How old are you and your partner?  I’m 42 & he is 40
  3. What do you and your partner do for a living?  I’m currently switching careers and going back to school to get my RN/BSN.  He works in waste management
  4. What’s your engagement date and story?  We were high school sweethearts who re-connected 25 years later.  We just knew when we first started dating again that this was IT. After dating for a year, he asked me to marry him at the end of February.  We had a custom ring made, which I received on May 13th after he got down on one knee to “officially” ask me.
  5. What is your wedding’s theme/colors/style?  No theme, no colors, no “style”.  Just simple & elegant
  6. How many guests are you planning for? About 25 to 50 people. Although, so far we’ve only received 2 “no” responses.  We’re hoping to keep it under 50, budget-wise.  But if more than 50 respond “yes”, yikes!!!
  7. Is there anything else you want to tell us?  Since we’re former high school sweethearts, we have LOTS of mutual friends on Facebook.  Because we’re trying to keep the wedding small, we haven’t announced our engagement or wedding on Facebook because we don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings about not being invited.  We just can’t have a wedding with hundreds of guests.  All of our close family and friends (and those invited) know about the wedding and we’ve asked them not to mention it on FB.  It’s killing me not to be able to post status updates about the wedding on FB.  I think that’s why I’m so addicted to the Bees.  I can’t talk wedding non-stop!!!

When is your wedding date? 24th of August, 2012 – excited to see I have date twins, hi!

How old are you and your partner? I’m 31, he’s 37.

What do you and your partner do for a living? I am a freelance writer and editor. He works for a publishing company and also tour-manages a folk singer.

What’s your engagement date and story? He proposed on our two-year anniversary. He wanted to go for a picnic but it rained so he got down on one knee at home. I knew it was coming because he’d been dropping a lot of hints (including proposing in his sleep, which was too cute).

What is your wedding’s theme/colors/style? Purple, red, blush pink and ivory (purple is the main colour, so purple bridesmaids’ dresses, ties, etc)

How many guests are you planning for? We have all our RSVPs back and we’ve got 110 guests!

Is there anything else you want to tell us? We had mutual friends for 15 years before we met and somehow kept missing each other. I’d even seen his band live without realising I was watching my future husband. We got together because of friends who happen to be wedding photographers (and are obviously photographing our wedding now) who we’d both known for over a decade. Also, I changed my dress A WEEK AGO because of a problem with the original shop! I’m very happy (I got my deposit back, and found a cheaper dress that I like more) but I never expected to be buying my dress this close to the wedding!

@Sopranokis: have you thought of making a friendslist only of wedding guests and posting updates just visible for them? That way you can update without offending people who aren’t invited.

@Moomin – what a great story!  I’ll bet you two look back and say “how did we miss each other all those times?”  Wow!  Thanks for the advice on FB lists.  I never knew you could do that (not technically savvy on FB functions).

4. Engagement Date and Story – April 19, 2012.  We had gone to a TobyMac concert and afterwards, he asked if I wanted to go on an adventure.  Behind the church was a gazebo and we went out there and danced.  We had talked about getting married for a little while by then, so when he asked if I was still ok with the direction we were going in, I said “Definitely!  I’m getting excited for when it’s time for us to actually start planning it and not just dreaming about it.”  He grinned and said “Me too.  So excited that I don’t want to wait anymore!”  Before I knew what was happening, he was down on one knee with the ring!  So very happy!

5. Wedding theme and colors – we don’t have an “official” theme, but my decorations are turning out to be a little more countryish.   Colors are herbal green, light orange and pink.
