  • Wedding: May 2010

Hey I am Sara! My fiance’ and I got engaged in January after 3+ years of dating. He is 34 and I am 27! I work in medical sales and he is a surgical sales manager. We love Notre Dame football, wake surfing, skiing, and our dog: Apollo. We built a house on “the” lake this past year and finally moved in in Aug 2009. If your relationship can make it through the construction process of a new home, you can make it through anything! (Needless to say, it was quite stressful)!  Our engagement is a short, but long awaited 5 months, and the wedding is only about 5 weeks away! I am so excited to be spending the rest of my life with this man! πŸ™‚ Nice to meet you, bees! πŸ™‚

I’m Ali.  I’m totally new to this and am still finding my way around so bare with me.  (I’m also rather long winded so I appoligize in advance…) My Mr. BakerBetty and I met my first semester of college.  He was a senior.  We played soccer together.  That was 7.5 years ago.  We are renting a house where we live with our feroucious 3.5 year old mutt Stella.  HTB works at the local ski resort as a Supervisor in the Ski and Snowboard School (winter months) and for the Kid’s Adventure Program (summer).  I’m a baker who decided to quiet my job as said baker and join a new emerging company.  I am now the Production Manager of the Vermont Peanut Butter Company which makes me the lone peanut butter maker.  We are a gourmet, artisan peanut butter company with nutrition and a healthy lifestyle in mind.  I really love it and am very excited to be part of a growing company.

During our time together we spend time hiking with the dog, biking (road and mountain), Kayaking, Snowshoeing, reading, playing cards, watching movies and most recently, working on planning our vegetable garden for this summer.  We also hope to get chickens to raise for eggs in the next couple months.

I’m the romantic, HTB is, well, I guess, is too in his own way.  He proposed on February 11, 2010 in our living room as we were rushing between work, meetings and extracurricular plans.  I was completely caught off gaurd and still, after almost two months, have trouble believing it’s real.  After so long being in the same place in our relationship, taking this next step has been hard to wrap my head around.  Though I knew it would happen someday, someday was always off in the distance.  When we had our finances in order.  When we had our “careers” in order.  When etc, etc, etc…His someday seemed to come when I had no inclination, which made it a big surprise.  A Big very exciting surprise!  The wedding is planned for August 21, 2011 which is my grandparents anniversary.  Both have passed and were very important to me.  They were married in 1937.  We’re planning an homemade outdoor wedding as a family bbq style.  Rustic, colorful and unique.  I look forward to sharing the planning process with all of you!

That’s our life! [attachment=868084,108467]

  • Wedding: June 2011

I’ve never bothered introducing myself here, lost in the internet shuffle, so here is goes:

I’ve been Miss Mouse since I was a baby, it’s what my dad called me FOREVER, and oddly enough, my Fiance had a tendancy to call me ‘mouse’ even before he knew that it had been a long-standing nickname. So, it’s been a well used handle of mine for a long time — I have to say I was a little disappointed to know there was an official Bee called Mrs. Mouse though!

I’m 22 and have been engaged for 2.5 years, my Fiance (J)is 24 and is the biggest KID ever, right down to snowball fights and candy for breakfast; On the other hand, I am the most serious officer of the ‘Fun Police’ ever.

I like books (biblio-whore, not phile!), and he likes video games. I like dogs, he likes cats. We’re the opposites in many things, clean/messy, summer/winter,  I like to get up early, he likes to stay up late. But it works and we couldn’t be happier. He’s an HVAC technician, working on getting his industrial certification, right now I’m a SAHM/WAHM (and by work, I mean I manage our investments & piddle around with my own semi-artistic crap).

We’ve been together for a really long time (6 years this summer) and get a lot of flack for not ‘considering our options’ (sowing wild oats & all that jazz) and ‘getting ahead of ourselves’ (having a kid in college = unhappy traditional families) but it rolls off our backs just fine. Everything in life is a choice, even our being together, and it’s a choice we both respect.

We bought our first home in Nov. 09 and are working together (sans contractors) to repair, renovate, landscape and increase the value of our 75year old home. It’s a project I couldn’t be happier to tackle, and I am so-SO grateful that J is the one helping me along the way; I’ve got the vison, he’s got the know-how. πŸ™‚

Annnnnnd because I am paranoid to a fault I’ll share a picture of my hilariously dog-like cat, but not us, the interwebz can be a scary place (seriously, he knows ‘high-five’ ‘come’ ‘beg’ ‘jump’ and other food induced commands):

“Okay woman, I sat, now gimme the tuna!”

Fun post! I love being able to put faces to the names!

Mr. Frugal and I met while in college together. I’m 24 and working in insurance law. Mr. Frugal (although that’s not really a fair name for him, because he is much LESS frugal than I!) is 34 and is a sergeant in the military, and will likely be joining me in law once his current contract is up with the military. We have a wonderful one-year-old son together, who is the BEST. (Unfortunately we don’t allow photos of him to be posted on the internet, so you will have to just take my word that he is adorable.)

Mr. Frugal and I got engaged July 2009, and we will be married May 2011! Our colours are moss green and ivory with pale pink accents. We are aiming for a very traditional/romantic feel.

We are both addicted to chocolate. My guilty pleasure is reality tv (he likes it too, but he doesn’t admit it to anyone but me). We love the outdoors, cooking, wine, and family time!

  • Wedding: April 2011

Hello, fabulous bees! I’m Ashlynn, an aspiring YA lit writer and “Professional Writer.” It sounds nice, but it’s really the BA of BS, the degree of procrastination and talking about books that haven’t been written yet, and a sweeping license to complain about the grammatically challenged.:P I have lots of these:

Mostly I just sit at a desk working on my carpal tunnel. Or I’m outside gardening. Four siblings, 21, native of rural Pennsyltucky, and hence, chronically bored; hence, on WB a lot.

My MinMan Steve is quite an intruiging man. At various points in his life he has been Catholic, Baptist, and non-denom…always a Christian, never a heathen! If it weren’t for his dad pushing him to get a real job in IT, he would probably be a penniless composer, nowhere near having enough money saved for an e-ring, much less a wedding. He still writes music; his instruments of choice are electric guitar and piano. He also built his own blackjack table, and puts actual ginger in his ginger ale. Because he’s a badass. One brother, 30, and (praise God!) Furbaby Free.

We’ve been together for about a year and a half. We’ve had marriage on the brain for most of that time (my family still thinks we’re really getting married this spring!). We are basically two incredibly well-matched people. πŸ™‚

I love this thread!

Hi Y’all…

I’ve been around the hive a while, but can’t remember if I ever posted on one of these threads.  πŸ™‚

I’m 31 and an encore.  Fiance is 33 and has never been married. We’re both in the Oil & Gas / Engineering field and live in the sweetest place on earth – Sugar Land, Texas. (that’s near Houston)

I have an 8 year old daughter and a 9 year old son from my previous marriage.  We were “set up” or I guess, nudged to talk, by some very good mutual friends.  We started dating in Nov 08 and were engaged by April 09.  When you know, you know.  πŸ™‚  (Did I mention we booked our venue in Feb 09?)

We’re planning a big ole wedding for our huge families and great friends.  Our long engagement has let us save some cash, do insane amounts of of DIY, and get things “just so”.

Our ceremony is family oriented and my children will walk me down the aisle, stand with us, and receive necklaces as part of the ceremony.  Our sweetheart table will be for the 4 of us…

  We can’t wait to start our married lives together.  We have entirely too much fun on a regular basis and laugh constantly.  We truly feel that everything we’ve been through in our lives was just part of the path that led us to each other.  Soul mates doesn’t even begin cover it.

  • Wedding: October 2010

Hi I’m Leigh aka Inkypoo. I am a 26 year old(27 in May). I am already married to my Inkpad. We did the courthouse quicky 1 1/2 years ago Thur. 10/02/08. Finances weren’t right, a lot of our family couldn’t make it then, and we wanted to go ahead and tie the knot. Everything we did, including being married on a Thur, was planned for this year. We’re renewing our vows and having the wedding that we wanted then. I have 2 kids from a previous marraige as does he and we have one together. I am a part time stay at home mom and a photographer. Inkpad is a carpenter by day, mechanic on the side, and a volunteer firefighter. He is my 3rd husband(very long story) and I am his 2nd wife. We are each others last!

We’ve already weathered so much more than most couples should ever have to.

The family photo was taken outside of the courthouse the day we were married.

Hello hello! 

Oh WeddingBee….where have you been all my life?  lol πŸ™‚

I’m 30, and my fiance will be 30 in less than 2 weeks!  I am originally from New Husband, and he is from western MA, and we met about 6.5 back through some common friends.  After awhile, I started to hang out with just Mister Grass, and we’ve been together for almost 5 years!  He proposed last summer, while we were on vacation, in Kennebunkport, Maine, on a gorgeous summer night:

 

He’s a chef in a fabulous Boston restaurant, and I am a retail slave…and love every second of it!  πŸ™‚ We love New England and all it has to offer, love all our local teams (mmmhmmmm, that means you, Red Sox!!), and are huge foodies!  Top Chef….yes, please!! 

We’re planning a modern, yet family oriented wedding in Boston this summer, and are so excited to enter this next chapter of our lives together!

Hello All!

I am Heather, a 25 year old midwestern law school grad and I met my fabulous italian fiance when I was living in DC for undergrad. He is 28, finishing up the last month of his masters degree and will be working for the county manager after he moves here in 42 days. We have been in a LDR since I moved back to the midwest for law school almost 3 years ago but now that school is done he is moving here and we are getting life started together. I can’t wait to move into our adorable brick home with our 3 year old cocker spaniel, Cloe.

We have been engaged for 9 months already but our wedding won’t be until August 27, 2011 (our 5 year anniversary). With both of us being in school, the bar exam, moving to a new city, new jobs and the like we decided a long engagement was best for us. I haven’t gotten much done as of yet, the bar exam and my last semester of law school took up most of my time but now that I know I passed the bar I look forward to getting some planning done. About 2 more months and we will be all settled into new jobs, new city, new house and then it will be time to focus on the wedding.

Right now we are liking the idea of a casual, intimate family/close friends only beach wedding in outterbanks north carolina (close to a lot of friends and family in dc) but every time i pick up a wedding magazine our color pallet changes so nothing is set in stone.

Well that is enough about me… here are some pictures… can’t wait to get planning!

Hello Bees!

My name is Kirsten, I’m marrying Ivan πŸ™‚ We were engaged in June 2007, planned our wedding for May 2008, but then postponed it because we became pregnant (a total surprise, but I guess our lil one didn’t want to wait) So we decided to buy a home instead of having our wedding. Now a year later we are planning our wedding all over again. We decided to have our wedding in Las Vegas for financial and demographic reasons. No date is set yet as we are still saving up, but hopefully soon.

We have planned to have a small wedding at the MGM Grand Chapel with an intimate cake and champagne reception backin our suite and then a night on the town with our friends and family.
