    Name/FI's Name: Desirae and Kevin
    Ages: 23, 26 (date of wedding, almost 25 and almost 28)
    Wedding Date: 12-8-2012 (yay! we are date twins!)
    Wedding Colors: National Irish Tartan (Dark Green, Black, Yellow, White)
    Reason for picking a December wedding: Expenses, where we live is crazy expensive for summer, our venue and ceremony would have been triple the cost.
    Biggest annoyance of such a long engagement: We both want children now and just want to be Mr. And Mrs. AND get rid of those who keep saying things could change, an engagement doesn't mean anything. So annoying.
    Best perk of such a long engagement: 2011 prices, less stress
    Size of wedding party: 5 groomsmen, 4 bridesmaids, 1 matron of honor, flowergirl and ring bearer
    Vendors booked so far: Ceremony, Reception, DJ
    Projects I'm DIY-ing: . We do however know that it's a traditional irish wedding, with shamrock plants for centerpieces, bagpipes for ceremony, where we are renting the kilts and the style of dress for the girls. We'll probably DIY the centerpieces and flowers, and our wedding website is password protected for now but prepared. :)

    We are really excited!

    edited to replace our middle names w real names now that we are sharing w family and friends our date. ;)

    Reason for picking a December wedding: We started dating on December 29th, and since we already celebrate that (a cheesy tradition we started in high school), we decided to keep it the same :)
    Biggest annoyance of such a long engagement: it's sooo far away!
    Best perk of such a long engagement: I'm super picky, and it gives me time to do plenty of wedding research!
    Size of wedding party: 4 bm's, 4 gm's, a flower girl, and a junior groomsman.
    Vendors booked so far: none,  but I'm on the venue hunt right now!

    Size of wedding party: not sure yet, probably just a moh and bm, or three for each of us.
