My name is Cassandra and I’m slowly starting to plan my upcoming wedding. The boy and I haven’t officially gotten engaged (we’re in an international LDR for now so time together to propose is a little tricky) but we’ve decided we’re probably going to elope to NYC this coming May. We’re both low-key, big on practicality, and PhD students with a young child so we’re doing things easily and with a small budget. I figured I’d come around here mostly as something to amuse myself with at work and to maybe get some ideas about my wedding and the party my partner’s family is going to want us to throw when we get back from New York…

Hi there, my name is Karinne and I have lurked around for a while, finally registered today! My wedding is in t-minus 33 days on March 2!!!
I have been doing a lot of DIY from my Invites to centrepieces and favors and have been wanting to check out what other brides are doing!
I am Canadian and living in New Zealand, which is where I am getting married (to a Kiwi) and my family is flying over for the wedding.
Very exciting [email protected]!

Hi! My name is Amy, and I’m engaged to Matt. We live in Albany, NY and our wedding is in Saratoga Springs on June 16.
We recently had to cut our budget in half when I lost my job, but will be having our wedding still! Just not where we wanted it, but oh well. We don’t really have a theme, just navy and soft pink, with clean lines everywhere.
No furbabies, no real babies, but they are on our mind. I’m considering going for my MBA first, then tackling kids.

Hello! I’m a Vancouverite getting ready to finish university soon (fingers crossed!). I’ve been a lurker here for quite a while, because I absolutely adore weddings! I really can’t get enough of them. I’ve been with my guy for two years, but we’re nowhere near engagement; I just love the atmosphere here so much, I couldn’t help but join! 🙂 Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

I suppose that I am also a newbee. I have also been lurking around for a while, but am somewhat shy, so don’t post a whole lot. I got engaged to the man of my dreams on September 8th 2011 and will be getting married in July of 2013. I am planning a wedding in Connecticut from Seattle Washington, so I am looking for all the help I can get. I am so happy to be part of this community!

I am a newbie and I could really use some advice I’m getting so stressed. I havent had any help picking anything and I’m a living anxiety attack. Our wedding is May 27th and the bridal shops are pressuring me to get our bridesmaid dresses and I cant choose a color or scheme or anything. I just put up a post needing advice. I was thinking old hollywood, then more organic looking drawing the green from outside the windows in…then it was black and white, then it was greyish purple….that was all like 2 hours ago…now Im think maybe blush or petal. Help me people pretty please. I just put up a post with some pictures but I need to order my bridesmaid dresses for our May wedding and I want to cry because I just cant make a darn decision 🙁 Thanks everyone 🙂

Personally Babe, i think being a lovely May wedding your idea of blush/petals sounds fab as does the green, this will really go well with the weather and look gorgeous, remember you can use blush etc and have lots of greenery too with the flowers so therefore matching the outside of the venue! Good Luck, hope you have a amazing day! xxx

I’ve been lurking for a few months and decided I should jump in and contribute. My wonderful lumberjack of a fiance proposed last July on our 2-year anniversary and we’ll be getting married July 6, 2013! We’re waiting to get married until he is finished with college (I’m definitely practicing patience!) and then we’ll be settling down here in southern California. I can’t wait to get more involved here!

Hello lady bee’s-
Just wanted to introduce myself, as I have been lurking for a bit. My name is Adriann and I am 35 and my partner is 38. I am not officially engaged yet, though we are already planning. My sweetie is a romantic on a budget, and between trying to get the bling he wants for me and the details planned for his proposal just right, I am still waiting. I don’t think for much longer though.
We have been dating for 1.5 years and living together for most of it. We met with the aide of the internet and when I came home from our 1st date (which had lasted over 8 hrs) I told my best friend that I had met the man I would marry, which is totally not in my character to say. I never looked back, it has been phenominal. I look forward to spending the rest of my life with hm.
We are hoping to tie the knot at UCLA, my mans alma mater, October 2012.
I look forward to reading more tips about making my wedding beautiful and keeping down cost. I know it’s doable as I used to plan events for a living, and thank goodness I can DIY a lot.

Hi All! Im 32 (33 next month!) and engaged on December 2011. I live with my fiance in NJ. After the new year we decided to start some planning and in the past month, unexpectedly made a lot of progress! We found a venue we love and set a date 3/23/13 and I went dress shopping twice and said yes to the dress just yesterday! I still cant believe it.
