What a fun thread! I debated over joining in, since I’m an “old married lady” (lol), but I decided: “what the heck!” 

So … I’m Patti. I’ve always hated my name because it’s basically just a nickname and not short for anything. I know — totally weird. I’m 46 (yikes!), and I’ve been married for 16 years. Darling Husband and I have been together for around 25 years, total. We had a long engagement because we were both in graduate school. We got married back before the internet was really a “thing”, and kind of before weddings had themes. So we didn’t have a theme, exactly. But it was a beautiful wedding in one of my favorite places in our home town. And there are lots of great memories from the day, even all these years later.

I was a lawyer for a while, but now I’m a stay-at-home mom. Not necessarily what I would have picked, but it was what worked best for our lives once we had our kiddo. We have one daughter, who is 11. And two goofy dogs. And an elderly cat who has turned a bit evil in her old age.

Along with being a stay at home mom, I’m a struggling writer. I blog and am working through trying to finish my first novel. But writer’s block is awful. I tend to spend a lot of time hanging out on the Bee. I mostly hang out on the ring boards, where I love to hear beautiful engagement and ring stories, and I adore stalking lavender-reveries:  ring.  I also have a bit of a nail polish addiction — oops. (ha, ha)

The rings set I wear the most often, and that gets posted the most on here, is an anniversary set. Darling Husband gave me the “ERing” part for our 15th anniversary last year, and the wedding band part this past Christmas. But, over the last few months I’ve been able to wear my original ERing again (yay, weight loss!), and I found a cute band to make a mismatched set with it, too.

Hmmm … I’m not sure what else to include. I’m a pretty boring person, overall — ha, ha!

These are my rings:

Original ERing and band:

And a couple of the furry kids :

Love this….

My name is Bridget. Fiance and I met on eHarmony a year and a half ago. I was living in Australia at the time and when I found out my company was moving me back to the US I decided to join an online site to help me get back into the singles scene. We are the third couple we know who have met on eHarmony. Two are already married and we plan to do a destination wedding next year. 

When we matched in eHarmony, there was an instant connection. Our first conversation was 7 hours! Within 10 days of being matched, he booked his flight to Australia to come visit. We actually met face to face for the first time in the airport about 5 weeks from the day we matched online. He has been my bewski ever since…

I am 42 and have never been married. My bewski is 42 (exactly six months younger so I am a cougar!) with 2 daughters from his first marriage. We got engaged on April 24th of this year…

Awww I love this thread! I’m relatively new to the Bee and have been loving the ring and nail boards lately but happy to put a name and such with the rings!

my name is Megan I’m 29 Fiance is 31. Known each other since elementary school, were always friends, hung with the same crowd, finally had the nerve to admit our crush on each other about 7 years ago and have been inseparable ever since. He dated my friend in high school and I rmember thinking so some weird reason, I’m gonna marry him one day and now here we are…

getting married next October 2016, we were engaged at the Christmas tree in Rockefeller center so it only seems right that we get married on the Hudson River (wedding with a view) overlooking NYC, were from North Jersey. I’m very glam so my colors will be black purple pink.. Can’t wait to buy my dress!! Maybe I’ll start dress shopping this summer.. I’ve been getting lots of idea from the Bee! Here are our dogs! Love seeing everyone’s furry friends!

This is such a fun thread!!! I’m 30 (weird to say out loud since I just hit my 30s last month) and my fiancé is 33. We met at a wedding in Key West over 2 years ago and were engaged in January of this year. He’s my best friend.  Love to share the beauty he proposed to me with πŸ™‚

We are getting married on Valentine’s day in 2016 in St. Augustine Florida At a venue I’ve loved for years, the white room (brochure cover pictured above). I’m a non-profit event planner so wedding planning for me has so far been a breeze compared to working with committee of volunteers! I’ve been describing my vision as glam/shabby chic/romantic. With the color Inspiration below …

And just because others are sharing … Here’s our four legged fur baby (while showing off some bling)

      Hi y’all!  I’m Ashlan. My fiance proposed at a cozy little B&B in Como Mississippi in January. We have been together since I was 14 I’m 20 now. 

I’m currently looking for a job as I just finished radiology school. We were planning on getting married in Jamaica, but the hotel wasn’t very good with communication. So we now plan to get married in Key West by my aunt. ( Way Cheaper! ) And then honeymoon.  My colors are Royal blue, champagne, and gold.

longtimemrs:  haha I loved the shout-out!  But what I loved even more was learning about you!  I find you to be far from boring!  How interesting that you are a writer and are pursuing a novel, wow!  I used to get writer’s block even doing papers for school, much less a book, I can’t even imagine!  Love your fur babies, too πŸ™‚

Hello! I’m Amber and I’m 32. I will be 33 next month. My Fiance is 34 and we were engaged March 25th and have been together for 9 years. Yes. 9. This will be my second marriage and his first and we have not set a date yet. Obviously we are in no hurry. Ha! When we decide to tie the knot I’m 99% sure we will elope with just me, him and our kids. Probably in the Texas Hill Country but not set on an exact location yet. I am a mommy to 3 children 12, 7, and almost 2. I also part time substitute teach and I am hoping to start as a special ed para next school year for the school district I work for. 

Glad this thread was started! Interesting to know a little more about everyone!

Hi! My name is Meg and I just got engaged over memorial day weekend! I’m 31 and my wonderful fiance is 33. (It still seems weird saying fiance) He pulled out all of the stops and proposed on a helicopter ride over Newport, RI. I was almost too distracted by the view to appreciate the ring! However now I’m obsessed with it and can’t stop looking at my hand. I have no idea what my theme, venue or date of my wedding will be, although everyone keeps asking me. I’m definitely going to use weddingbee for inspiration though!

Nice to meet you all!  Im Rose, Im 31 (but only for the next 5 days!) and a British expat living in the far north of Australia.  My Fiance is 29, a carpenter by trade and grew up in country Australia and is totally Aussie, through and through!  Im a midwife working in a birth centre so on call a lot but absolutely adore my job πŸ™‚  I love to keep fit and active and am a big proponent of eating real food and being active so youll often find me stalking the fitness and pregnancy boards!

My mr and I met just under a year ago at an outdoor beer festival and were engaged 6 months later in December 2014, I knew from the moment I met him that this drunken imbecile was my husband!  We’re getting married December 2015 near his hometown at a gorgeous old cattle station.  The theme we’re going for is romantic/handmade…but in a barn πŸ™‚  

Heres some gratuitous pics of my sparkly amora ring and my beautiful fool of a dog!  Oh, and my colour inspo too…:-)
