~ ~ NEW BRIDES-TO-BE - SOUND OFF ~ ~

i guess i'm one of the "oldies" on here - i've been here since April or May of 2008 (i cant even remember) and have seen many gorgeous PW hotties "graduate" from fiance to beautiful bride...and as the weeks and months go on - we are seeing more and more of our on-line sisterhood who will go from checking "single" to "married" on their tax forms =)   it's really been fun seeing all the planning then one day - seeing pics of their special day and h-moon!! 


How many newbies are in the house??


it's ok if you normally lurk - but step out and intro yourself and a little bit about your wedding, your fh, your dress, etc... anything!!

I did the same as willi...just jumped in. I'm a knottie too and came across PW somehow and LOVE it!


We are from Chicago. I'm in HR and he's a Project Manager for a cellular company. We met while I was in college.


Our wedding is 9/12/09, and I'm a planning addict! We are having a champagne, pink, and silver wedding. I've got most of my vendors picked up with the exception of a videographer and transportation.


I'm planning on DIY invites, programs and menus. We are also doing a candy buffet.

Hey, I haven't introduced myself yet either.


Im a 22yr old Psyc student in the last year of my degree from Australia, will be marrying my high school sweetheart Nov 09 who is a mechanical engineer. We have been together almost 6 years and have been engaged since Christmas last year.


I somehow discovered PW a little while ago for all the wedding pics and inspiration, and found the forums much more friendly than the wedding sites back here.


I so far only been dress shopping once and I am almost certain I have found "the one" but will still keep looking for a while. I definately got that bride-y feeling when I put on this dress...


Hey I haven t photo 83325-1


And our wedding theme will be grey, cream and coral - with maybe a berry-pink tone.

I guess I never really introduced myself either.  FI and I have been together for almost 5 years and have been engaged since Christmas 2007.  We've gone from a destination wedding to local wedding and are now back to planning a destination wedding.  We found a wonderful venue in PV.  Take a look!


 


I guess I never photo 83341-1


 


Now it's just a matter of making it fit. We're hoping for a March of April affair.  We're keeping it very small and intimate with just close family and friends making the trip.  We decided that although we want our day to be uber special and we'd love to share it with everyone who is important in our lives, we need to concentrate on starting our lives together and buying a home.  So...maybe we can celebrate our 5 or 10 year anniversary with a big bang. 


I am very much into DIY projects so I plan to make our invitations, escort cards, programs, menus, etc.  All of the ideas on here are just amazing!

So I am another one that has been lurking on here for awhile but never really introduced themself.


I am currently in my last year of grad school and also working at an elementary school and my FI works in the videogame industry. We met in undergrad and have been dating for 3 1/2 years. We got engaged August 12, 2007 and will be getting married March 21, 2009.


I am from Orange County but getting married in my FI's home church up in Thousand Oaks. We have booked all of our vendors and are just getting started on some of the little fun details. I have already gotten so many ideas from here but I am sure I will need lots more advice as the planning continues!

I'm totally a newbie but I feel like I've made tons of PW friends =)


My name is Jaryce and I have been with my FI since my junior year in high school. We made our 7 year mark June 16th. We have so much in common yet carry two complete different personalities. He and I are exactly 1 year and 1 day apart. My bday is Dec 21st and his is Dec 20th. HA! We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE christmas. I get the Christmas jitters when the months start to end with "BER". So yes! I have already started rockin my Christmas music this month. But of course in moderation. hahaha. (I feel so bad for y future children)


Anyway, Ramon and I got engaged back in July. You have no idea how excited I was. To tell u the truth, I was getting a little nerves there. I was like, "How the heck am I still with a guy for this long and he has yet to propose." haha. I started getting a little bitchy when the WORD came up. hahaha. But I knew that the wait was worth it because I truly, truly am deeply in love with this man. 


I am completely in love with his family. I have been blessed to the fullest extent with having the best future in laws ever! The are definitely my 2nd family. We both have been raised pretty much the same. Same values, morals and religion.


About the wedding: OMG! I have pretty much started the first few steps. haha. I know I have a long way to go.


Big Day: It seems like it is going to take forever till we get to the big day! Sunday, May 30, 2010. Memorial Day Weekend. 20 months to be exact.


Colors:Gold, Lime Green ( i think thats the color), eggplant and a dark bluish/purple.


Cake: I would like o mock this cakeI m totally a photo 83351-1  


Dress:To be perfectly honest, I kinda like my KNOT pic. Something form fitting with a little lace accents. (haha, it's funny, I get inspirations from places places where I least expect it.) Wedding Avatar Gallery - Bridal Widget Gallery - Bride Icon Gallery


Who's Paying for what: Well, our families has offered to pay for our entire wedding but for some reason I just can't stomach the idea. (Only GOD knows how much I wish I could, but for some reason I can't. Ramon and I have agreed to pay for at least half of the wedding costs. Which is why I am totally excited about this site to learn how I can cut costs and bounce things off of other Brides-To-Be's. 


Thanks DIRTY for posting this.
