Hi all, my boyfriend of 8 months proposed to me about 5 weeks ago and I couldnt be happier. We are planning to marry in the summer of 2011 but here's the kicker; although we live in NYC, we are both from Europe and plan to marry in Europe. I have never ever even thought about getting married until of course I met him. I am not a big wedding person, I am totally clueless about everything (other than what I have seen in my friends' or relative's weddings). We are having a small (on American terms!) wedding and I am not into picking favorites amongst my friends in terms of maid of honor. Is it really necessarily to have one? I really dont think I want one. Also, my fiance has been very involved in contacting churches/reception sites in Europe (we will marry in the country where he's from), but I feel lost as to what we should be doing first. We have started to think about the guestlist and color schemes. I am not sure that I would even know whether I am considering everything! (decorations, flowers etc). Where do I start???
