I’m 7 months in to my engagement, and going to try on wedding dresses for the first time this weekend. (Im taking it slow, LOL)We are looking to get married NEXT October so we have many more months to go, but so far I love it! I love being able to look forward to the wedding, I just don’t know what I will do with myself when its all over!

I am actually enjoying our 14 month engagement.  Laughing


We selected our venue and decided on our colors and Theme – “A Family Union” – but thats about it…  we are treating this like a “do it ourselves” project.  Having fun and really enjoying the process. 


Gonna go dress shopping in the fall with my mom and sis in law- looking forward to it!

  • Wedding: October 2011

We were engaged in June, but we had discussed marriage well before then. We’ll be coming up on a whole year now, but the wedding isn’t until November…. and both FH and I are SICK of planning, we just want to get married, have a good laugh with folks, and just enjoy the quiet afterwards. I’m not even sure we can afford a honeymoon at this point, because of school, and with laws changing, I am no longer eligible for Hope scholarship!!!! URGHHHHH….. I can’t wait for it to be over!

  • Wedding: August 2011

At 3 years into our relationship we started talking about getting married, at that point i wanted at least a year to be engaged so that i could plan it and we could save. Well 2 years later, when we got engaged (march 2011), I still said I wanted to get married in may of 2012. But after about a month, I decided I had waited 5 years already, and we had the money and resources now, why wait any longer!! So now we are getting married in Aug. 2011, just 5 months after our engagment, but I still find myself wishing it was the day already and wanting to go on my honeymoon already, so I couldn’t imagine if I still were getting married next year!!!

Married: 12/18/2011

Can anyone say TORTURE!? lol 

But if we want one, we gotta pay for it. 

Luckily it seems to be perfect planning on everything for us. The Off-Season Discounts help, 

Ive been pretty solid on my favorites in terms of decor and dresses, but Im kind of glad I didnt end up doing the “Peacock” theme I originally had planned, because it sure has become popular and my wedding wouldn’t have been til Oct/Nov. earliest. But now that its in Decemember, a week before Christmas, it kind of narrows me in on specifics. I want Christmas touches, but not “theme’y”. And the venue that we have, include a lot so we just have to follow in their direction. Only sucky part is that winter decor doesnt go up til Oct. which then will factor what direction to go with my added decor. The staff says the manager changes or even adds things during the year. So yay but ughhhh. :/ Just hoping for the best!

But I do love the TIME, and though I tend to be a procrastinator, it helps so that I can *hopefully* enjoy  my wedding day instead of stressing! =)

Best of Luck Bees!!!

Preach ladies!  I was all about having a long engagement at first.  We didnt even pick a date until like six moths after we got engaged… But now that we have the date and the venue- I am pretty exhausted.  I feel like we have been saving money forever, and I am excited to have our old life back, where we could go out more, and take more vacations.  All of the sudden I am less excited about the wedding and more excited for the honeymoon/starting a family… Wah-wah…
