  • Wedding: September 2012

I like the idea of this! πŸ™‚

When is your anniversary? September 30th.


How long have you been married? Saturday will be 6 months. πŸ™‚ So we’re still newlyweds!

What do you do? I work part time as a bank teller, no currently in school.


What does Darling Husband do?  He’s in the Army.




Any pets/furbabies? I have a chihuhua, he’s going to be 9 this year. πŸ™‚ We also have 2 sugar gliders, they will be 2 this year. 



Any children/Plans for children? Not quite yet, we aren’t TTC yet, maybe after our anniversary.




Favorite wedding memory? I was so close to crying when my sister in law was reading “these are the hands” during our ceremony, but Darling Husband kept rubbing my hands, trying to comfort me and keep me from crying.. and he went on and on all day about how I was the most beautiful bride. πŸ™‚



One piece of advice you like to offer engaged couples? Plan things the way you want them to be for your wedding, but don’t worry about every little thing. The actual wedding day flies by so quickly, and the most important thing is that you’re married to the love of your life! Something will always go wrong, but who cares?

  • Wedding: January 2013

My head is about to explode from writing a difficult proposal at work right now, so I could use the 2 min break to write this out! haha


When is your anniversary? January 20th


How long have you been married? 2 months…but it feels like several years, haha (We’ve been together 6 years, and have lived together unofficially for most of that time, officially for half that time, so we’ve felt married most of our relationship, not too much has changed other than my name!)


What do you do? I work in publishing doing publicity


What does Darling Husband do? He works at a hedgefund doing something tech/IT related, I honestly don’t fully understand it haha


Any pets/furbabies? A beautiful 15 year old cat that has a total babyface. She’s getting old and has a thyroid problem though, so she’s actually taking up a lot of our time recently (feeding meds, taking her to the vet, cleaning up vomit Cry)


Any children/Plans for children? Not yet. I promised him I wouldn’t mention it (as a real possibility, I joke constantly that if babies were free, I would have had one at 4 years old since that’s how long I’ve wanted to be a mother) until our 2nd anniverary, so unless something seriously accidental happens, it will be awhile


Favorite wedding memory? Too many. We didn’t see each other pre-ceremony, so after I walked down the aisle with my dad, we stood staring at each other for the first time that day, but unable to speak since the officiant was doing the ceremony, and he just teared up and kept mouthing over and over “You’re so beautiful” and I almost completely lost it. Also during our first dance, a waiter tripped over the band’s power chord and the music stopped. We were thrilled because we didn’t want to be dancing up there alone another second longer, haha. (They plugged it back in and my dance w/ my dad went seamlessly)


One piece of advice you like to offer engaged couples? Screw etiquette. Do what you feel like doing. Most etiquette is antiquated anyway. And the day of? Forget what you think your wedding should look/be like and enjoy what it is. Fully embrace the F*** It, I’m Gonna Enjoy This Wedding No Matter What! moment Smile

One piece of advice you like to offer engaged couples? Remember to stop and take in the moment. Enjoy being engaged, enjoy the planning, and for goodness sakes remember to step away from the chaos on the wedding day and just take it all in. Every now and then I just stopped what I was doing and looked around, soaking in the visual memories of the day. This is once in a lifetime. Enjoy the moment.

When is your anniversary? June 25th

What do you do? I work in the fashion industry


What does Darling Husband do? He works in the finance industry


Any pets/furbabies? No. We live in a condo with no outdoor space, and both work such long hours it wouldn’t be right to leave the furbaby at home alone.  But, we hope to buy a house within the next 2 years and we would LOVE to have a dog =)


Any children/Plans for children? We are expecting our first in July! A baby girl!


Favorite wedding memory? Our first look..my Darling Husband was standing with his back turned to me (in the middle of Times Square) and I tip toed up to him and tickled his ear and he turned around and had a huge nervous grin..awww I wish I could go back to that day!


One piece of advice you like to offer engaged couples?  Don’t get so stressed planning the wedding to the point that you forget what it’s all about! My friends are getting married next weekend, and they have been sooo miserable planning this wedding because of the expenses, that they are actually saying that they can’t wait until the day AFTER the wedding..ugh that breaks my heart!  I had HUGE plans in mind for a ‘dream’ wedding before we even got engaged. Once we got engaged, I realized that it will take us YEARS to have a wedding like that.  So we ended up realistically thinking about how much we could spend, and ended up having a beautiful simple wedding that is now always in my dreams =).
