@cyndistar3: Yay another Christian! May I ask what denomination/non-denomination you are? I also agree with you and truitjen, I’ve never partied and never will. It has zero appeal to me, where a book, crafting, or drawing is more my idea of fun.

And just to pop in, my birthday is July 30, 1992. A lot of July brides O.o

@cyndistar3: Same here :] If I had to say it’d probably be Baptist, because that’s the church I went to as a kid, but really I’m non-denom. My FH and I are trying to read the entire bible together, we started on Matthew yesterday, and then we’re moving on to Genesis πŸ˜€ I love baking too; that and breakfast foods are about all I can cook, though I’m trying to change that πŸ˜› For our reception we’re having a candy/dessert buffet, and I’ve got to bake all day tomorrow to finish the cookies, mini cheesecakes, and fudge. What are your wedding plans so far?

It’s so weird because everyone I know was born in either May or Fall/Winter, haha. I have one friend born a week before me, and that’s it. πŸ˜›

I’m only 18…and married to the love of my life, the man who makes me the happiest woman alive. I couldn’t imagine life without him. People may judge you, but there are plenty of woman who get married that young and are perfectly happy throughout their marriage.

Oh, and welcome to the wonderful life of a Marine wife! My hubby is a Marine πŸ™‚

@cyndistar3: That sounds great! My FH’s grandfather gave us another book, “The Gospel of John” to read, but we’re focusing on one at a time, lol. Yeah, I can chicken and some pastas but everything’s kind of odd and end stuff; I really want to get better at cooking, particularly Italian, even though if I learn to cook I’ll probably gain 10 pounds >.<

Yeah I understand, it was a long time before we had enough saved up that I felt comfortable spending any of it, lol. And the bouquet cost way more than I had anticipated it to. But we ended up pulling everything together in the end, with help from family and a lot of diy. Now I just have to sit back for the next three days (and finish my bridesmaid’s bouquets >.> wow am I late on that one) and wait.

Potluck weddings are a great idea, we almost did that until FH’s uncle insisted food as a (very generous) wedding gift. Are you having the wedding outdoors? I wanted to so bad, but weather isn’t permitting. Especially now, when my house is being slammed by snow and thunderstorms :O

Grandmas are amazing! Mine has been more supportive of us than anyone, and has come up with really great ideas! I’m sure yours will be a huge help, grandmas know the best tips and tricks for saving a dollar and making things charming πŸ˜€

I definitely believe that your ready, just reading through your posts, I don’t think that anyone could call you immature by any means. And no worries I think I’m even more out of place than you on here lol, I’m 19 and not engaged and I’m looking for a ring anytime soon either. I’m just here for the lovely company Wink

I was 18 when I got married. Noone could tell me anything.  Everyone told me the same things …. “you’re too young”, “You need more life experience”, “Have fun before you settle down and get married”.  I WOULD NOT LISTEN. I was in love and was blind.  Well….. I thought we had made it BUT we ended up getting a divorce after 13 years of marriage.  We have two children together.  What I want in a husband at the age of 32 is very different than what I saw as important at the age of 18. I NOW think having those years of life experience are very important…. to know who you are before you blend yourself into someone else. I mean we pretty much grew up together after we got married, but I ended up molding into who he was and wanted me to be too. I have just in the past two years began to learn about ME.  I’m not trying to lecture you, because I know I’m sounding like a momma right now.  I just hope my children choose a different road.  I want them to have lots of wonderful life experiences and be who they truly are before they get married…. preferably above the age of 25.  Anyway, I wish you the best of luck.

I’m not engaged yet…but I’m 19 and really I don’t think age has anything to do with it. If you are ready, that’s all that matters…oh and my bday is July 29th πŸ™‚ seems like we will all be celebrating around the same time? Big birthday bash anyone?
