Last night was a VERY big night for the FH and I, or should i say yesterday all togerther was a VERY BIG day for us. After searching high and low for the perfect venue and not getting such a great response from some peoples. I was finally able to meet with the Coordinator at our top location, after many miss attempts to get a hold of him and not reaching him, the meeting finally took place yesterday. I had little hopes and becuase of all the miscommunication on his behalf and me calling his manager, we negotiated the venue to a quarter of the original price and a beer and wine package all night long for $30 a person…i wanted to sign the contract there and then but thought it best to review with FH. I wasnt even out of the parking lot when i called him and told him the great news. He quicly agreed!!! We are very very excited…
Later last night we had a meeting with the Priest that will marry us. The meeting was great. I thought that he would question why we wanted to get married and question our love for each, which of course he did not do, it was more a less a meeting for him to help us prepare for what comes after our big day. After that was all said and done he had us take a 160 question quiz about us and where we see ourselves now as a couple. I think we did great for the most part. We have had conversations about Kids and finances but never really about what role each of us will take. After leaving we went and had dinner and had a great indepth conversation about the question. I loved yesterday it was the best day so far in planning.
So Bee’s it offically offical May 22, 2010 is our date…..

Wooo hooo!!! Congrats on finding the venue and securing the date. Personally I think May 22, 2010 is a wonderful day. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that we’re date twins 🙂

That’s wonderful! Congrats!
And I know two couples who were married on May 22 – they’ve both been married for 5 years now… so I think that’s a great date!

@Tanya123: Thank you so much, it was great, i think because of our culture i think we leave somethings as taboo. i want to break that tradition, I mean i love this guys and want everything to be perfect before, durning and after the wedding plans…
@EAQ219: Thank you "Date Twin" we must keep in contact for motivation. I am very excited. May 15, 2010 was our origianl date but our venue was already booked and the 22nd was open. Things work in strange ways, my FH proposed on the 22nd so i think the day has more meaning.
@LaraBee: Yeah, i love the good karma of the the date!!!
