I am so happy to have discovered weddingbee! and the fact that there is a queer focused forum makes it all the better!
My gf proposed in June, and we are getting hitched next August. I never understood the point of long engagements before, but now I do. There is so much to plan and save for!
We’ve been together just over three years, living together for two, so we know this works. I feel so blessed to be planning such a big event, and such a major rite of passage, with this incredible woman.
So far we agree on everything. It’s crazy. I mean, sure minor disagreements over attire, and what’s our song, but we still have almost 9 months to figure everything out.
I am spending a lot more mental energy on the wedding planning right now, because she’s in school, but I don’t feel like she wants me to organize everything myself. Everytime I need to discuss something, she listens and has imput. Just last night we decided on our wedding colours! I wasn’t sure if she’d like my new idea (mango orange and aqua blue) but she did! it will fit perfectly with our oceanside boat wedding. And I’ve already got my mermaid dress!
Anyway, just introducing myself here and gushing about how happy I am! I am sorry that same-sex marriage isn’t legal in all the States. Keep fighting! It’s such a non-issue up here in Canada. We haven’t come up against anything negative, from vendors, friends, family, etc. Love and strength!

Hi and welcome! I love your colors, sounds lovely together.
One of the stupidest fights I had with Fiance was the reception entrance song – he is dead set on the Star Wars theme….I don’t get it! Is it worth fighting over? It’s a stupid song!
Enjoy the rest of your planning and yes! We must all keep fighting! No one should be allowed to tell you who you can or cannot marry!!!

@waddlesmith: I wouldn’t want to walk down the aisle to the Star Wars theme either! wtf? Compromise somehow so it can be played when you make your entrace together for the reception, or some other time maybe. haha!!
@adnama: yay! BC bees! 🙂

@USAandKSA: I’m sorry your partner doesn’t seem to be interested in helping you plan! maybe you need to sit down and get clear on what does excite them, what they envision, and what areas they can “direct” somewhat…
