Dear Fiance and I have been together since 2006 and have a wonderful 2 year old. We’ve been talking about marriage for a while but its official. Our wedding date is August 11,2012. I look forward to reading all your posts and hopefully getting some good ideas on mine. Good luck ladies!!

Hey everyone!

I am new to this site, but I have been engaged since August 9, 2011. I decided to join this site because everytime that I am searching wedding related things on the internet, I always end up on this site and find such good advice and tips. 

My FH and I have been dating for 7 years now. We actually started “dating” back in 2nd grade for a little bit and I still have a little ring from a bubble gum machine that he gave to me back then. He’s my best friend and my everything and I CAN’T WAIT to finally be married to him. He proposed to me while we were at the top of the Eiffel Tower replica at Kings Dominion during the light show. And it just so happened that he timed it out perfectly and about 5 minutes after I had said yes, the fireworks were being set off. It was pretty magical. Smile

 Our date is set on June 2, 2012, which is EXTREMELY close and I have so much to do. Because of financial problems, we just recently really started getting things done. I’m stressing out, so I’m really looking forward to some great advice on this site!

  • Wedding: October 2012

Hey everybody! After being stunned by the cattiness of the women on the knot, I’m hoping for a little bit more laid back of a forum here.

My Fiance and I have been engaged since July, 2010. He’s an engineer at a small firm and I’m a college student (sadly) working on starting my 5th year (sigh). I’m majoring in science education! 22 years old, will be a couple days away from 23 when we’re married on Oct 6th, 2012! I’m very excited that THIS is finally the year we’re getting married! We love this year because it’s my grandparent’s 50th anniversary year and they mean the world to us.

We are planning a minimally expensive wedding in a state historic preservation site. I’m incredibly frugal and have made it my mission to pay for this wedding on a dime, but still have thoughtful touches that truly make it ours.

To add to the stress of getting married, my Fiance, our two dogs and I are in the middle of moving to a different city to be closer to his job. We’re remodeling a mother-in-law suite on my parent’s farm which we hope (and pray) to be moved into by the end of February.

To throw another kink into planning, I’m hoping to spend a month in Ethiopia this summer!

So talk about a crazy year. I hope this forum can answer some of my questions so I can relax!

But I know my fellow bees will have my back.

Hi everyone! I am technically a newbee πŸ™‚ I started lurking a while ago but I joined and started posting a couple of months ago. I introduced myself on the 20-something board, but I’m not sure how many bees saw it, so here goes:

I’m Enne (like the letter “N”). I’m 23 and I married my high school sweetheart in 2010. I was born in NY but raised in GA- so I claim the south as home πŸ™‚ I love chocolate, jewelry, hot tea, fiction novels and kickboxing. I have entirely too many throw pillows and I think technology is a little scary and will take over the world. I’m currently in grad school and will get my master’s degree in 2013!

Fun fact: We have one cat, Stella, who we named after the beer because that was first thing she went for when we took her home, lol.

Hello All!!!

After lurking around the boards, blogs, and wiki for about 2 years now I have decided to say hi!! I stumbled arcoss WeddingBee when and old highschool friend became a bee and have been around every since. It has been a blast watching all the bees weddings and getting ideas for my own wedding. I have been with my Fiance for four years and he proposed May 1, 2011. We are planning a November 3, 2012 wedding for 200 people in Rhode Island. We are very excited and I can’t wait to share more about what is going on.

  • Wedding: February 2012

Hi πŸ™‚ I’m new around here too. I stumbled upon this site when I was Googling all sorts of random wedding things and kept coming upon the discussion board. After finally observing for a while, I ended up posting my own dress dilemma post and the responses I received were so full of warmth and support, it’s unbelievable!

I’m Alexa and I’m getting married to my best friend and the most amazing man I’ve ever known on February 14, 2012. We got engaged October 18, 2011. I can’t wait and I’m so excited! We’ve planned a traditional ceremony for about 150 guests. Every day when we get home from work we run to the mailbox to retrieve RSVP’s and check the door for packages. We’re coming up on 4 weeks now and the hastle has begun!! We’ll be living in South Florida after our marriage and we hope to relocate up north after a few years and establish ourselves in a nice community. Love this website, love you gys! πŸ™‚

Hello fellow future brides and husbands too!  My future husband and I have been together for 12 years. We got engaged after 4 years of being in love.  I guess you can say that we’re doing things backwards.  We have two wonderful boys, born in 2006 and 2009, needless to say our wedding plans were put on hold! We are now ready to make it official.  Our wedding is being planned for October of 2013.  I am lucky enough to have a fabulous wedding planner of an Aunt, more of a fairy godmother at this point, as she is teaching me the ins and outs of planning our beautiful day.  Anxiously awaiting our fabulous day.

I’m a “newBEE”. I just started up my account yesterday, but i’ve been viewing posts on here since November in my endless search for the perfect ring. And because of these boards, I found it!

My boyfriend and I are not yet engaed…er…”officially” i.e. we don’t have the ring yet. We know we’re getting married and I know he’s going to propose soon (he better!).

I’m a 29 year old single mom of 3, back in school (prenursing). My boyfriend is 29 and also has a daughter. We’ve been together for 22 months, but knew from the first week that we’d spend the rest of our lives together. When we do get “officially” engaged, it will be a long engagement. I want to get married close to when I graduate which won’t be until 2014 =( When we do get married, I plan on having an intimate wedding. Basically I just want a dress and a photographer….and a husband of course. I’d rather spend money on an amazing honeymoon or on a down payment for a house. That’s just my personal preference. The dress is a must, because I’ve always wanted to have a white wedding and I also love photography and I want to capture the memories forever. Yay…I guess I’m going to be on here for a while.

Hi, everyone!

My fiance proposed on December 23rd, but we tell all our friends and family it happened on New Year’s Day because we wanted a week to just smile and giggle at our sweet little secret. Our families must have thought we were crazy on Christmas because we couldn’t stop making googly eyes and laughing at nothing. πŸ™‚

We met in my sophomore year of high school and his junior year but didn’t start dating until after he had moved away and back and I had graduated. The funny thing about all this is that we never really spoke, but instead asked about each other through mutual friends for a whopping three years before we decided to grow up and actually TALK.

For a number of reasons, “friends” have sworn up and down that we wouldn’t last (and are pretty upset about the engagement), but we have been through hell and back in the three years we have been together and guess what? Here we are.:)

I’m so excited to finally share this news with such a wonderfully supportive community of Bees!
