- Wedding: September 2011
Hi guys I’m new here (obviously!) and could use some advice.
My boyfriend proposed to me just over a month ago, and since then, I feel like everything has been going so fast! I just graduated with my BA, I’m moving and starting a new job in two weeks, my birthday is coming up, and to add to the craziness, my parents want to hold an elaborate 4th of July engagement party for us.
To top it all off, my fiance’s family and mine keep saying we need to register before the invitations go out… next week! They told us about the party two weeks ago, but obviously with finals, apartment searching, job interviews, etc he and I have had zero time to do anything but announce our engagement verbally and on Facebook, lol.
I wouldn’t mind registering, to be honest. I mean, I guess we can make an appointment and get it done this Saturday. But do we have to do it before the engagement party? Will it be a travesty if we don’t? Did any of you guys do it? Why or why not?
Sorry if my questions have been asked before! I’m the oldest in my family, out of all my siblings and cousins, and none of them have been married yet. I’m also the first of all my friends to be engaged. I’ve been to two weddings in my whole life and one was when I was nine years old!
I even said this in another trhead: I had no idea Vera Wang made china, lol. Or that there’s wedding freebies and discounts for registering – wow! What else do I need to know? I’m going to keep lurking, lol, and asking questions, but if there’s anything I should know right off that bat, I’d appreciate a shout.
Thanks guys, I really like this site and I’m looking forward to lots more posting, after my life calms down a bit of course!
ETA: Someone please clue me in on wedding websites. I’m assuming these are different from wedding registries, right? Or is it a site that includes your registry and other stuff? Do I need one of those too? Is that becoming the norm? How does computer illiterate me make a site? Help! lol
