Hello Ladies! I am new to hive and while I have been lurking for some time, this is my first post! I feel so wedding “dumb” that I don’t think I can contribute much, but really think you all have plenty of great advice to share and I really need it, so here I am .
I am not sure if it’s common to introduce yourself to the hive, but here I go. My name is Danielle, I’m 32 yrs. old, never been married. I have a 11 yr. old son and I live in Canton, Ohio. My fiancé and I have been together for 6 yrs. and he really is the love of my life. He has a 7 yr. old daughter that we have half of the year and we all really do well together (for the most part) for having a blended family and while it does have its challenges I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else!
We have put off our wedding 3 different times, for various reason (usually money or once because I got so overwhelmed with the planning that I just said forget it and stopped doing it) but this time it’s happening on April 9, 2011 and even though I am very nervous about the whole thing, I am excited to finally become Mrs. Crawford!
I can’t wait to get to know you all better!

Welcome to the Bee! 🙂 I was “wedding dumb” when I started planning, too. Do you have an idea of what kind of theme/feel you want for your wedding yet? I found it helpful to nail down the general vibe first.

WELCOME! I had NO idea what I was doing when I started and put off planning anything for 2 mos after we got engaged because I was so overwhelmed.
The Bee definitely was a big help! So many creative women and good resources as well!

Hello! I used to live in Carrollton and have some friends and family who have been married in Canton the past couple years 🙂 I still don’t know what I am doing but it is nice to have support of so many women going through the same thing!

Welcome! I’m sure you will find this site to be very enjoyable & informative. It’s nice to see another Mom on here who’s never been married and who has a blended family (like me). Good luck with planning, and I look forward to “chatting” with you soon.
