- Wedding: April 2012
Not sure if this is posted in the right place, it is hard to find the boards on here for some reason – or maybe I am just not looking hard enough!
I just joined tonight.. I have been engaged to my beautiful partner for almost 2 years (not counting some rough patches when it was “off”). Yes, it is a same sex relationship (she is pre-op transgendered but lives as a female full time, so I still consider it same-sex). We have been together for almost 3 years and our relationship has been entirely long distance – with visits about 4 times a year. It is tremendously hard but somehow we have made it work for this long. When I graduate from college in May we are hopefully planning to get a place together finally (haven’t yet because my family does not know yet *rolls eyes* that’s a story for another day).. and we are hoping to get married in 2012. I would like it to be sooner than that but with job and money issues, I doubt it will be. We have a very significant age difference (I will never disclose the exact number, lol) so some things are more difficult as far as wedding planning because we have such different tastes. Well, it’s basically me dong the dreaming and planning – she doesn’t talk about it much yet.
Our wedding will definitely be on an extremely tight budget, so I am trying to involvce as many friends as possible to take on jobs for smaller cost (my best friend is a photographer, another friend is a great cook, my best friend’s son has DJ’ed before, etc). I am pretty sure that my family will not help pay for anything so it will be on the salaries of a retiree and a teacher hoping to get a job right out of college, lol. I am set on hot pink, black and white damask for colors, and spend alot of free time searching the net for DIY and cheap ideas!
Well I guess that is enough of an introduction as I have rambled for far too long. I look forward to participating in discussions and getting to know you ladies better.
Take care 🙂
