My MOH is my cousin, who is just like a sister to me. I don't have any sisters, so we fought like crazy when we were younger, and now, confide in each other in all of our adult problems just as we did when we were in high school. I promised her a great dress that she can still go out clubbing in, but yet still fit in our informal wedding. My bridesmaid is my best friend who I've known for 7 years and counting. She's been with me through thick and thin, and I love her crazy butt! So the first dress is for the MOH and the second for the bridesmaid and then the flower bouquets I'm thinking of.
Happily engaged: February 20, 2009
It's definitely been an adventure for both of us. We were only together less than a year and already dealing with issues that challenged our relationship. Him with his long hours at work, my constant work schedule. There was no time to even get to know one another. We knew there was something wonderful between us in the brief times that we did spend together, and so things changed, and the change was for the better. After two years of dating, we were engaged.
The Engagement: He proposed to me a couple days before my birthday, on a beautiful beach, during a beautiful sunset. It was a surprise, and I couldn't help but cry... on the beach, in front of everyone watching the sunset. All of our friends, who were soon going to join us at the beachside resort were in on the surprise. We returned to the hotel room where chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of champagne awaited us (big thanks to my bestie who suggested the idea to the FI). He even asked my parents for permission. So when I called home extremely excited and still sniffing away tears of joy, they already knew the great news, and said "about time".
Wedding date: July 31, 2010 Location: Hometown Hilo, Hawaii
