  • Wedding: December 2009

Hi All! I got engaged in November and just started diving into the wedding planning pretty recently. My fiance and I are getting married on December 30, 2009 (I know, a Wednesday, *GASP*) but it’s the holidays and it’s much cheaper that way. I am working full time and he is still in school until December, but the Army is paying him to be a student. We have a measely little budget but I am the queen of frugal so it is still going to be an amazing wedding!

 

Can’t wait to bombard everyone with my questions, concerns, and rantings. I also blog about them regularly 🙂

  • Wedding: October 2010

Hello! I’m Jean – waiting very patiently to be "offically" engaged (i know, what does that even mean!!) in PA. My boyfriend and I decided in December that we’re readt to get married, so he is saving for an engagement ring and until then we’re trying to keep it a secret. 🙂 I love reading all the great ideas the Bees have and the boards have really helped me get a better idea of all that goes into wedding planning. We’re shooting for a fall 2010 wedding right now, so I’ve got lots of time to read up here!

  • Wedding: May 2009

Hi! I’m not officially a “newbee” anymore (yay for finally getting my 50 posts), but I’ve only been on here a week or so. Love it! We got engaged Jan 7, but have been planning the wedding for a while. He was just waiting for our family vacation to make the proposal perfect (snowmobiling through yellowstone, proposed at Old Faithful, it was amazing). He’s currently living 1000 miles away, so our Jan 2010 wedding got moved to May 2009 so we don’t have to be apart so long. It’s nuts throwing all this together so fast, but I’m having a blast! I love having all the great ideas and advice here on weddingbee! Ya’ll are the best!

  • Wedding: September 2009

I am pretty new to the boards as well. We live in Colorado have been together for almost five years and will be getting married in Wyoming in September 2009.

 Right now the moms are the biggest PITAs as they have a ton of questions and concerns. My parents are divorced, his are german… things are complicated. 

I know it will be a blast and the best day ever as long as I can get all these contracts sent off!

Hi all! I’m Laura, 27, and from Oklahoma. Not engaged yet…been with my sweetie for almost 2 years and we’re waiting to get the ring when he goes back to work on the pipeline. So…in about 2 months I should have the rock on my finger! Hooray! He should be done pipelining in November so it looks like the end of the year for the wedding.  I hope he’s done sooner because I’ve always wanted a fall wedding. So, that’s about it.  I go with him when he’s working and we bought a new fifth wheel this last summer. We should be leaving in the next couple of weeks to go to Missouri. So, expect to see me around here often as it gets very boring hanging out in the trailer all by my lonesome.

Hello everyone! I am a third year law student, living in San Francisco with my FH and our two bunnies. We’re getting married in October a little ways down the Penninsula. I find it kind of hilarious that I am on a wedding forum since I was never one of those girls who dreamed about planning her dream wedding. It took me months just to decide on the color scheme! But it’s great to see what everyone is doing and I’ve gotten a lot of inspiration from these boards. See you guys around :).

  • Wedding: September 2009 - City Hall

Hi, I’ve been trolling around WB ever since cherry pie became a blogger – she’s a ‘real life friend’ and she introduced me to the site. I finally signed up a week or two ago because it’s all coming together for the man and me now. We’ve picked out the ring and we’re just waiting for them to finish making it for me. I live in North Dakota, I’m a first year PhD student and a full time college staff member. The man and I are trying to decide between a courthouse marriage (just us, no fuss), which is more our style… or a medium sized [+-100] family/party wedding (done on the cheap, lots of diy and potluck elements) for everyone to enjoy. We’ve decided to leave it up to our families to help us decide, since the big wedding would be more for them than for us. In the meantime, I’m here, checking out everyone’s ideas and offering some advice too.
