    How's the wedding planning going? Any blips or bumps in the road?
    Ive just started looking around, browsing and such.  No real plans set in place.  The FI and I are just hashing out ideas and what not. So far we are agreeing on a lot.  I know it will be much more stressful when we start actually nailing down the important stuff, but right now were just having fun with it!

    Next major project to tackle?
      STD's and picking out a venue.

     Very small wedding so only issue is lack of money. Also getting friends and family (in the beginning) to realize this is a REAL relationship (I am 12 yrs older than him)

    Next major project to tackle?
      Next big thing actually comes after the wedding...need to submit all the paperwork to make Hubby leagal to live and work here in Canada. THAT will make any wedding planning seem simple LOL!

    Just getting started.  I wasn't prepared for the reception hall prices around here so I'm going a little crazy finding something within our budget and open when we want it.  Thus - the flexible date.  :)

    Next major project to tackle?  Well, securing a reception location.  A lot of other major decisions made but not set in stone yet.  Hey - I've only been engaged a week.

    20 months

    How's the wedding planning going? Any blips or bumps in the road?
    Just starting out - he wants a "real" wedding, I want something simple.  Biggest "blip" is figuring out my dress - I don't want the white princess dress (did that in my 20's and 30's); this is my 3rd wedding and I want simple elegance, not traditional bride.  Add almost 50 with real curves & most of what's out there isn't me.

    Next major project to tackle?
    Dress & venue.  Hello ladies (& gents, I think I saw one or two). Nice to meet you.

    Hi!  I am Kristi, and am planning on marrying my FI in 2013.  This will be my second wedding, but the first for my FI.  I have two daughters, 7 and 5, and my FI is the best father figure for them. :)

    # Times Previously Married: 1 for me; 0 for FI

    How long between first date and wedding date?
    It will be 3 1/2, if we don't change the date. 

    How's the wedding planning going? Any blips or bumps in the road?
     Well, I have a long time to plan, so I'm just trying to decide whether to have it here locally or to elope to Mexico.  It's a hard decision because I would like to have it here, but FI is not from this country, so he doesn't have any family that would make it for the wedding.  I don't want to have a wedding here that is just made up of my friends and family, so I'm not sure what to do.

    Next major project to tackle?
     Deciding on the location and the guest list!

     No blips or bumps.  Mom and her best friend are planning most of it.  We are in charge of very little and the rest is a surprise.  I get to drink wine and chill for the next few months while they stress about rentals etc!

      just under 2 years

    How long between first date and wedding date?
    We had a long distance relationship until just recently, but I've known him for 20 years, and he was my best friend in high school. I guess between finding each other again and our wedding date will be 3 years and 4 months.

    How's the wedding planning going? Any blips or bumps in the road?
    Just getting started. We live in MN, just over the border from Fargo, ND. But we are both from Fredericksburg, VA, which is where the wedding will take place. I have contacted my home church in Fredericksburg to see if one of the pastors there will officiate.

    Next major project to tackle?  We need to make sure that our date is okay, it could move up or back a month, depending on availability, and look for a ceremony+reception venue. We are considering doing a day wedding, with a more casual luncheon afterwards.

    We are doing pretty good.  Just getting started but we have picked a date and both seem good with a destination wedding.  I'm sure we will run into something but we are keeping everything low key and fun for all.

    Next major project to tackle?
      Getting passports for everyone.  We have to get exes to agree to passports for the 3 younger ones.  Then to pick a destination and start making all the travel arrangements.  We are trying to cover everyones flights and rooms so that all they will have to worry about is the money for fun.
