  • Wedding: August 2008

1. Name and age

Michelle, 24 

2. Location
I live in Northwest Arkansas, but our wedding will be in Lawrence, Kan., home of the KU Jayhawks! 
3. Fiance’s name 
Ryan, 27 
4. How did you meet?
We worked at the college paper together, but we didn’t start dating till we moved in together to save some money post-college in a strange small town we both happened to end up at. 
5. When did you get engaged? 
Aug. 28, 2007 
6. Wedding Date 
Aug. 31, 2008 
7. Wedding theme/colors 
Ever since I left Kansas to move to Arkansas, I’ve missed everything prairie! Now, I’m not a farm girl by any means. (I’ve only been on one a few times. I’m a city gal.) But I can’t help my love for sunflowers, which are the state flowers. So our wedding colors will be chocolate brown and bright green to play off the sunflowers that will be used throughout the wedding. 
8. Location of Wedding 
Historic South Park for the ceremony followed by a reception at the historic Eldridge Hotel. 
9. Whats been the best part of planning? 
Um, I haven’t really let myself enjoy it too much. I’ve been too busy! 
10. The worst? 
Dealing with a crazy Future Mother-In-Law and getting lost in the details. I really wanted a smaller wedding, but gave in to a ~120 affair. When I try to plan a rehearsal dinner for 100 people (yes, I’m planning that, too, long story), I think wistfully of my eloping idea.

  • Wedding: June 2008 - A garden wedding followed by a tented reception on Mr. Hummingbird's father's property.

Hey ladies!

Saw this post on the board and thought I’d jump in.

1. Name and age: Jill, 25

2. Location: Toronto

3. Fiance’s name: Ben

4. How did you meet? We chatted online and then our first date was at a coffee shop.

5. When did you get engaged?: May 4, 2007. He’s a cartoonist so he proposed to me in a comic strip! 

6. Wedding Date: June 28, 2008, the four year anniversary of our first date (I saw going through the boards I have a couple of date-twins. Go June ’08 brides!)

7. Wedding theme/colors: Still working it out but right now I would say blue, green and chocolate brown.

8. Location of Wedding: We’re having garden ceremony and the reception in a tent on his father’s beautiful country property.

9. Whats been the best part of planning?  Talking to new people and sharing ideas. It’s cool to learn about everyone’s plans and to be inspired by other crafty brides. 🙂

10. The worst? Worrying about how we’re going to pay for everything ourselves. We live in an expensive city so finding extra money for everything is tough.
