Your Name?: Emily

FI/DH Name?: Tim

Wedding Date/Anniversary Date?: 11.11.11 ("If he forgets that, you'll have a reason to sock 'em!")

Wedding Location?: Winter Pakr, FL

Ideas, colors, or themes you are considering or chose for your big day?: black/ivory/blue(sapphire)/silver, and vintage above all else.  FI is anti-theme but I'm sort of weaseling it in there.  After all, the bride's attire does really set the tone for well, everything?  ;)

How did you find PW?: I think it was on an ad for either Once Wed or Eastside Bride...now I obviously spend waaaaaay more time on here.

What's your favorite part of PW: It goes like this: 1) FI and I have a question about ettiquette, or something else we have no idea about.  2) FI asks, "what does Project Wedding say?"  3) I consult.  4) I tell him that "committee by Project Wedding says this!"


and duh, also you girls are awesome.

Something interesting about you?: I worked 11 hours today, finished dinner at 10pm, and just watched 30 minutes worth (via Youtube) of Yakov Smirnoff "Fun Facts" aired on ABC in the 1980s.  Also I'm a Libra.


What's your favorite PW group? PW Nerdy Brides *hint hint nudge nudge*

Your Name?:  Christina

FI/DH Name?:  Wes

Wedding Date/Anniversary Date?:  March 10, 2012

Wedding Location?:  Houston, Texas area

Ideas, colors, or themes you are considering or chose for your big day?:  Pastel blue, wisteria, champagne; hydrangeas; a mix of the Jane Austen period romance and whimsy with some modern touches

How did you find PW?:  I was looking for wedding websites shortly after Wes proposed, and while we didn't go with this site, I signed up for the email newsletter and eventually made my way to the board.

What's your favorite part of PW:  Honestly, the boards; I get to interact, get inspired, hopefully inspire others, and be a little AW with others who get excited about weddings, too!

Something interesting about you?:  I received the blessing of teaching one group of kids for three years, starting off as their sophomore English teacher, then junior English teacher, and then senior English.  They graduated last year and they were an amazing group--I never knew I could get so connected to a group of kids.  And apparently some of the students are trying to devise a plan to figure out where exactly I'm getting married and when so they can be there.  They don't want to crash it out of malice (so I'm told), but they just want to see me get married.


What's your favorite PW group?  Nerd Love is awesome for all the nerds out there!
