Hi everyone! My names Alysa and I’m 26. My fiancé and I are high school sweethearts and have been together for 8 years. Weve been engaged for 8 months and don’t have much plans for a wedding yet, just enjoying being engaged. We have decided that we will likely have a boho themed wedding at our ranch, And of course I’ve pretty much found my dress, only problem is it’s from grace loves lace and they are only in australia. Im a registered Nurse and my fiancé is a heavy equipment operator. I have to sneak in a pic of our baby since he’s so stinking cute 🙂

This is one of my first posts. My name is Isabel and I am newly 25 years old, my fiance is 30. I am a labor and delivery nurse in the US. I absolutely love my job! My fiance works in administration at a university.
We got engaged on March 7, 2015 in the mountains on a hike; he proposed on the summit, it was beautiful. We never went ring shopping together, much to my dismay. The entire proposal was a complete surprise. He did do an AMAZING job picking out the ring as I LOVE IT. I wanted a princess cut, aquamarine; mostly I wanted a filigree and detailed band, vinage-y look. We never really spoke about what I wanted, so I was thrilled that he was able to figure it all out on his own. He said that he mostly just paid careful attention to comments I made about other friends’ rings and deduced from there. He’s great!
We are getting married November 6, 2015 which still seems far away to me. We don’t have a true theme, but are getting married in a “barn-like building”. It’s way too pretty to be a true barn wedding. Our colors are navy and salmon, and whatever else looks good. He is way more involved and opinionated about all things wedding than me, which is fine by me! I’m mostly just excited to have all my favorite friends and all my family together in one place dancing and eating and simply spending time together.
We have a 4 year old pup named Max. He is a pit bull/sharpay mut, and literally the sweetest dog ever. Mostly he likes to sleep near any warm body and cuddle. I love him.
I have found my guilty pleasure is the rings board here on the bee. I have no idea why as I am not really into jewelry at all. The only ring I wear with any regularity is my engagement ring (and even that is only 50% of the time since I don’t wear my ring to work). I just love to see everyone’s excitement about their rings, and the sparkly things, and the different designs!

Hi! I’m Kayleigh, I just turned 25 and I’m getting married July 18th, 2015 around Napanee, Ontario. For those who are not familiar with the area, think about half way between Toronto and Ottawa! My Fiance just turned 26 and we have been together about a year and a half officially, but dated unofficially (while not seeing other people, too. What were we doing???) for about a year before that. Our colours are peach/coral and charcoal gray. We are getting married at an AMAZING restaurant, outside, with a tent. My future Father-In-Law suggested it and it was gorgeous from the videos (we looked at it in the winter) and we’re excited to be getting married in such a beautiful venue for such a reasonable price.
We also have three tabby cats – two rescues and a cat my future Father-In-Law got from an apple orchard with his brother. The brother cat died a few years ago but my Fiance still has his (gigantic) cat, Si. I swear, he’s bigger than the maine coons we’ve had in the past and he’s just a normal, classic, DSH tabby! The other two cats are half blind with IBS (my baby!), and our new addition is a 14 year old rescue with no teeth that we took in after Valentine’s day this year. Their names are Bip and Molly. 🙂
So nice to meet everyone!

My name is Melissa, I am 26 and Fiance is almost 29. We got engaged on May 7 2015 after 5.5 years of dating. Our wedding date is July 30 2016. We are getting married at his parent’s cottage in Ottawa Valley (Canada). Our colours are pale mint, cream, and pale pink with lots of green succulents (I have an obsession with these plants). I still don;t know what they guys are going to wear, but it will be an outdoor ceremony and have a cottagey, low key feel to it!
I have been creeping the boards for months, and it still amazes me I can actually plan and book things now! I am going to try on wedding dresses in July and I am so excited!
Here are our 2 fur babies!

Hello all! I’m watcherofthestars (I have a very distinct real first time, and rather not divulge it. 🙂 Nothing against you all, lovelies!). I’m the Head Content Writer and Social Media Manager for a coffee equipment company, but I’m in seminary to receive my certification in Counseling Psychology, and hope to make a career change into PTSD and Trauma Counseling for Aid Workers. I lived as an ex-pat in England, Australia, and France, but returned to the States two year ago. My fiance just graduated with his Masters in Divinity. He’s still on the hunt for a job at the moment, but he’s as sharp as a tack, so I’m sure he’ll find something soon. We met online, and since we’re both writers, quickly amassed over a hundred novel-sized emails within five months! He’s my best friend, and I couldn’t imagine getting married to anyone else.
This is my ring! I adore it. <3
We’re tying the knot this November, and are planning a handsome vintage-esque cocktail party in an industrial loft. Think exposed brick, reclaimed wood tables, and moody lighting. We’ve chosen to go with marsala, shades of grey, and shades of taupe as our colors, with brass and cut glass accents.

This is a great idea!
I’m a new bee. My name is Belinda. I’m 37 and my SO is 40. This is my second marriage (was married for 15 years) and his first. I have 3 great kids. An ex-step daughter I still claim who is 19, and two sons 14 and 7. SO and I have been together 2 years in June and have been talking marriage for a year. We just went ring shopping a few weeks ago and picked out this beauty:

I’m 20, and my fiance proposed a week ago today! He proposed at the park where we had our first date almost 3 years ago. 🙂 I’m a Human Services major, minoring in Theatre. We don’t have a set in stone date, but tentatively we’re thinking around May 28, 2016. Don’t have too much planning done yet, but our colors are going to be teal and pewter. We’ll probably be getting married in my dad’s church, so it will be a pretty traditional wedding. Here’s my ring! I LOVE it.
