    # Times Previously Married:  1 (me); 1 (FI)

    # Kids: 1 (adorable 2 year old:) ) (me);  None(FI)

    How long did you and FI date before engagement?
      7 months. To be fair though, we've been friends for 6.5 years. We were friends before I got married the first time, and things just never worked out for us to date. We've always had that mutual interest though.

    How long between first date and wedding date?
    2 years, 2 months.

    How's the wedding planning going? Any blips or bumps in the road?
     Everything seems to be going along smoothly. We've booked the hall & photographer, are in talks with the pastor at the church, getting ready to start pre-marital counselling, I'm doing most of the DIY work, and I just got the contract from the DJ.

    Next major project to tackle?
      Invitations. We have to set a time for the reception & wedding so I can start making the invites. I've already been doing a little at a time, just to get the ball rolling so I'm not going crazy when its time to send them out.

    Welcome, welcome ladies!  I've been remiss in keeping up with all of the introductions.  Wow!  We have a great group ...

    @katchiruian:  Good for you on getting the prenup done.  And it seems you have everything done, well except the dress.  You'll find one, no doubt!

    @tdq: I think it is wonderful that your FI is involved in the planning.  Good deal!

    @NeverSayNever: How's the progress on the invitations?  I'm a sucker for letterpress.  I will end up spending twice as much on invitations as I spent on my dress.  Ridiculous!  But ... I  got an inexpensive dress so that I could splurge on my dress.  LOL!

    @MrsHansonSoon: What about one of the museums for a kid-friendly venue?  I lived in Boston for 2 yrs while in grad school and seem to remember there are scads of museums that rent out their space.  Good luck!

    Wedding date: Monday, 9/24/12 Previously married? Once each Kids? We are happily child free! But we do have two cats. Date before engagement? Just over 3 years How long between first date and wedding? Almost five years. How's the planning? the wedding is in a year and a half so not a whole lot of planning yet. We do know that we want to get married at an historic lighthouse on Lake Huron but have not sent the deposit in yet - not much competition for Monday wedding dates. ;-) Major project? We are trying to decide on wedding rings. I like white gold, hhe likes yellow, etc :-) It's not important to me that they match, but it is to him.

      We still haven't decided what time we are going to have the wedding! Bridesmaid dresses are picked out, but have to make appointment for fittings and to order them. I am doing all the flowers. This is a DIY wedding, so we will be making our own invitations. Have yet to decide wedding photog, but have someone in mind who is available. Need to do engagement pics. Still deciding on a caterer or doing the food ourselves, buffet style.

    We haven't done much more than talked about what we want and made a guest list (which is tiny by the way)...my parents are most likely NOT on the guestlist, so that could be awkward when they find that out..but we have decided to only include people that have been supportive of us and our family.

    Its been an eye opener as far as prices go.  My first marriage was tiny and in ex MIL home and parents paid for it all.  So after stressing out over the prices of things we found it cheaper to go to Colorado to get married.
