Hey Bees! In the midst of all of the chaotic wedding planning, i wanted to break the ice with casual conversation.. how did you meet your fiance?
Our Story: I had just moved to a new city 2 months prior. i lived in a 5 bedroom house with roomates and paid monthly for the room. I decided to head out to the mall alone and took the city bus. i knew nothing about buses and waited an hour for one. (apparently there was another bus that ran to the mall every 20 minutes. Foolish me!) I also skipped the mall after waiting an hour.
So i head to do some shopping and decide to head to the food court to eat. I noticed an extrmely handsome guy with blue and and brown hair. He was so friendly and smiley. He worked at the pizza shop. I noticed $5 for a slice of pizza and although i wanted to meet him, i was shy and not in the mood for $5 mall pizza. i opted for another option but kept thinking about that guy. I decided to leave the mall and head to the bus stop.. not knowing if i was at the right stop or if the bus was still even running. All of a sudden someone joins me waiting on the bus….. the blue eyed, brown haired guy from the mall!! How ironic. He asked me if i wanted to go have a drink at a local bar he used to work at. I told him no because i work there now and today is my day off (again, how ironic) We head to my house to hang out and he happens to know all of my roommates from working at the bar a year prior. (again, ironic). My now fiance was going through hard times with family. He needed a place to stay and my roomates rented the spare bedroom to him. We were officially roommates. After hanging out every single day for 2 weeks straight, we decided to become a couple! (Nov 2011) A few years later, we became engaged (March 2014) and now after a long engagement, we are getting married Nov 2017. We have had more ironic things come up in our relationship. For example my birthday is his grandparents anniversary. My bday is in the winter so it isnt a common wedding date.
Thank you for listening to my love story. This wedding planning stuff is so stressful and i just wanted ALL of us to go back in time and go back to the basics of why we are working so hard on a beautiful wedding.

Cute story! 😍
DH and I met when I was in 6th grade and he was in 8th. He was my cooking TA. He lived right next door to my best friend at the time and he was best friends with her brother. So we all hung out often. He was my first kiss!
I went to a different high school, so we stopped talking for a while. But then my sophomore of high school we started talking and flirting, then go together my junior year of high school. We moved in together my sophomore year of college (his senior year). And got married after I graduated my undergrad this May! High school sweethearts ❤️

College frat party. I was having the best beer pong winning streak of my life and he shouted rather awkwardly at me whether I would be in his “frat family”. We are non-drunken adults now, but we had a lot of fun.

We both work at the same mining site in northern BC. We were friends for a few years, both in serious relationships (I was married, he had been with his ex for 4 years). My marriage was an unhealthy, abusive relationship which fell apart 2.5 years ago. His previous relationship had serious communication issues and he just couldn’t see himself marrying/having kids with her so he ended it 2.5 years ago. As we were both healing from our relationships we started seeing each other casually (maybe not the healthiest way to start a relationship but it worked out!) and it has turned into a really fantastic relationship and I couldn’t be happier. We supported each other through some really tough times. Through my divorce which got really ugly, him having to move back with his folks after having nowhere to stay after leaving his ex, things have been up ever since.

He showed up on my doorstep.
I was still living with my parents. My brothers had been hanging out with their friends who invited their friend (my DH), and afterwards one of my brothers invited them all over to dinner. After that day he kept trying to find ways to get himself invited over for dinner again just so he could pursue me. He even drove an hour out of his way so he could “carpool” my brother which would mean stopping by my house to drop him off. He told me that months after we started dating and I still think it’s so cute.

We met in high school! Fiance and I were in very different social circles so never communicated while in school but during graduation he gave me a huge smile. He then came in to where I worked like a week later and bought like $50 in scratch offs so he could sit there and talk to me. We’ve been hooked ever since lol.

I met my Fiance at my previous job. We were friends for a year+ before we actually started dating.

We met in college at a fraternity party, I was a freshman and he was a junior. However, we stared at eachother at our on campus gym for a whole semester prior– he’s just so dang cute ;). I walked into the basement of this party and saw him across the room. I told my girlfriend I was with that that’s it, I am not leaving this party tonight without finally meeting this mystery guy. He was playing beer pong (LOL I know) with some other people and I started chatting with his friend that was standing right by him. I must have been saying something funny from the liquid courage and he leaned over to my DH and said “hey DH, you have to meet this girl, she’s hilarious”. He introduced himself, we exchanged numbers and that was that! The best part was that my husband asked me if I worked out a lot because he swears he had seen me at the gym before and I played it off all cool like “yeah i work out occasionally”. More like yeah I work out all the time and definitely stare at you the whole time hehehe.

We went to high school and didn’t know each other personally, but knew of each other, we had mutual friends.
We ran into each other at a football game after we graduated and I was with one of said mutual friends who said hello to him and I decided to say hello to him too, which is really unlike me, I’m not forward like that. We chatted for the rest of the night and exchanged numbers and the rest is history. It’ll be 8 years this December.

My ex introduced us (after we broke up). Said “You and I weren’t right for each other, but there’s something I met who I think you should meet.”

Not Fiance yet technically, just BF but anyway…
We met at the gym. He works there part-time and I had just moved to the area and went to sign up. I happened to go while he was there. He gave me a tour and we got to talking. A week and a half later, we went on our first date, and we’ve been together ever since.

I moved in with a host family when I moved to his town. His cousin lives here too as he’s also related to my host mum. He lived round the corner and would visit his cousin often.

We met at on the lunch line in 6th grade. He asked me to be his girlfriend shortly thereafter, to which I responded yes. I went home that night and told my mom that I had a boyfriend, to which she responded “No you don’t!”
I went back to school and told him “Sorry, my mom says I can’t” but that didn’t deter him from riding his bike to my house every Saturday morning and sitting on my front porch until I came outside. Then we would do what all 11 year olds do…he would ride me around town on his pegs, haha.
We remained friends throughout high school even though it was well-known that he wanted to be with me and had grown resentful of the fact that I wouldn’t give him a chance. He stayed patient for years, as I bounced in an out of relationships and 16 years later, here we are getting married.
When he aske dmy dad for his blessing, he told him that “he wanted to take his whole life to show me what I had missed out on for the last 15 years.” I think my dad is even happier than I am. Now, I relate our story to that of the tortoise and the hare.
