    How your FI proposed: I came home from a really crappy day at work, and I was complaining for probably 10 minutes. I noticed my FI had cleaned the apartment and I thanked him and sat on the couch. About two minutes later, I saw him out of the corner of my eye. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! I was completely surprised. 
    Describe your wedding vision: We're having a FL DW in the evening. It will be waterside (on a dock overlooking the water) with a casual beach theme. We wanted something low-key but fun. 
    Your wedding must-have: Great photography.
    Your wedding "I could do without...": Bouquet toss/garter toss. 
    Color palette: Turquoise (I'm thinking the Malibu shade from David's Bridal), coral, and white
    Something you like to do for fun outside of wedding planning: Cooking! I've gotten into trying new (and even sometimes intimidating) things and I've gotten FI to open up to some new foods. 
    Favorite food: Steak & baked potatoes- goes together like PB&J.

    How your FI proposed:  We were on vacation in Myrtle Beach and he hid the ring in the sand inside a rock/shell.  He had his parents hide it in the sand before we got down to the beach.  He was pretending he was looking for shells and showed me the shell, got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!!  He had them take pictures and capture it on video!  Something I will always treasure!!
    Describe your wedding vision: We are trying to keep in inexpensive, but things are definitely starting to add up already.  I plan on doing a lot of DIY projects for the wedding to help with that.  I am also making them food myself for the reception (well with my mom's help!!)

    Age: 34

    Occupation: System Administrator

    How FH proposed: Our 2 year anniversary was approaching. We don't live together and we are a Brady Bunch. I have 2 kids boy and girl, he has the same. I showed up at his home unannounced and his youngest child asked me if I was going to marry his dad and I said someday. He said good because daddy bought you a ring. Well the cat was out of the bag. FH was disappointed, but he still got down on one knee and told me in front of the children. It was comical to say the least.

    Wedding vision: making it memorable for our children and family.

    Wedding must have: fun, there is nothing worse than a boring wedding.

    Wedding "I could do without": the whole thing. I would just rather elope, but he wants this, but mainly for the children can have something to remember.

    Color palette: dark turquoise and royal purple. Its peacock without the feathers or green. We are having butterflies to signify new beginnings.

    Something you like to do for fun outside of wedding planning: I love to read

    Favorite food: there are too many options to just choose one.

Then the last day we got back to the hotel at like 2am and flopped onto the bed, and he pulled out a ring and said he'd been looking for the perfect time, but never found anything "special enough." Then he asked me to be his Hero of Time! (Yes, we're Legend of Zelda fans.)

    Age: 32

    Occupation: Higher Education

    How your FI proposed: He surprised me at sunset, on the beach, outside our NC vacation house, in September. He knelt down in the sand and asked as he handed me a hand carved, wooden ring box he had made. He had secretly worked with a jeweler and his sisters to get a ring that was a combination of a few I had put on Pinterest.  I was speechless and teary, but he knew my answer was yes!  Afterward, he scooped up sand from where we had been standing as a keepsake.  I had known he would ask me one day, but I was not expecting such a romantic moment!  The best part was that we had a whole week of vacation left to enjoy each other and to celebrate with family.

    Describe your wedding vision: Elegant estate garden or industrial space with a touch of vintage and DIY

    Your wedding must-have: A big Italian party

    Your wedding "I could do without...": I have to go with drama!

    Wedding date: June 25, 2016 (Hoping - if not we may move into July)

    Age: 27 (now)

    Occupation: Teacher

    How your FI proposed: We went on a special date night in December. We got a room at a nice hotel downtown, went to a nice dinner, and watched Snowflake Lane (a holiday parade type thing with fake snow etc). After dinner, he walked me to a fountain outside the hotel, and we made wishes into the fountain. Then he asked me what I wished for, and I said I couldn't tell him or it wouldn't come true. Then he says, "Do you know what I wished for?" Before I could ask, "What?" he got got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! He put a ton of thought into it, and timed it perfectly. He proposed to me at 10:11 pm on 12/13/14. :)

    Describe your wedding vision: SImple but elegant. We're on a pretty tight budget but I still want a nice wedding. I'm hoping to have a relatively small wedding, as I've never really enjoyed crowds of people and am not an extrovert. 

    Your wedding must-have: A princess dress. :) I'm very girly. 

    Your wedding "I could do without...": A fancy DJ. Dancing is fun, but I don't need the super high energy, flashy lights, pulsating music type of experience. Just not my style. 

    Color palette: Still deciding, but I know it will include either aqua blue or orange. I suppose I could do both, too. Hmm...

    Something you like to do for fun outside of wedding planning: Craft! Or look on Pinterest for fun diy things. 

    Favorite food: Pasta or just about any dessert. 

    One interesting thing about yourself: I run an Etsy shop and sell tutu dresses and headbands. Hoping to do children's jewelry soon. :)

    How your FI proposed: I got home from a crazy day at work (we were planning on going out for dinner to celebrate our 6 year anniversary) and he was pacing around, not laying on the couch like I'd normally find him haha. He had flowers, a card and a candle burning on the dining room table, along with my favorite ice cream in a frosted martini glass. All I could say was how bad I felt for not doing anything for him because I thought we were just doing dinner. Well, I turn around and he's down on one knee in the doorway of the dining room with the ring box open. I thought it was a joke! Commence the "Are you kidding me?!" and "Are you serious?!" followed by a teary "YES!"

    How your FI proposed: Adam proposed on our front porch.  Complete surprise to me since he always said he didn't want to get married again.
    Describe your wedding vision: We have both been married before.  I've done the big, formal, puffy white dress wedding.  It's not me.  It's not what I wanted the first time around and it's not at all our style.  We're planning a small, outdoor wedding with Pagan/Celtic elements and hopefully a bonfire reception.  
    Your wedding must-have: A non-traditional dress.
    Your wedding "I could do without...": A huge expensive cake.

    Favorite food: Sushi
    One interesting thing about yourself: Our whole story is interesting.  I'm Shannon.  I'm a 35 year old divorced mom to 2 sons (Ethan is 8 and Cullen is 5).  I teach High School Autism support in a private school for kids with severe behavioral needs.  

    My fiance is Adam.  He's a 35 year old divorced dad to 1 son (Alex is 11).  He is a Behavioral Support Specialist at my school.

    Our story goes way back.  Adam and I dated when we were 14, 15, 16...I actually broke up with him for one of his good friends.  We lost touch for a long time.  Life happened and we both got married and had children.  Neither of our marriages worked out.  Last summer, we started talking to each other on Facebook.  In October, I flew from Pennsylvania to Colorado to see him for the first time in 17 years.  He picked me up at the airport, kissed me and it was all over from there.  On that trip, he gave me a gorgeous heart necklace with blue and white diamonds and I haven't taken it off since.  We flew back and forth over 1700 miles every few weeks for months.  In December 2013, right before Christmas, Adam and his son drove 29 hours and moved in with my boys and me.  Adam proposed on the July 18.  Adam and I had a rocky start and almost broke up a few times in the first 7 or 8 months of our adult relationship.  It is HARD combining families and working around money issues and dealing with exspouses.  However, love was always there and we've worked a lot on our relationship.  So, here we are.

    We're planning an outdoor wedding with some Pagan/Celtic elements.  No attendants other than our sons...a bonfire reception...nothing super traditional...just very much us.

    How your FI proposed: We were supposed to take the kids to the local football game but our youngest was super sick.
