    Not really. We decided early on that we would take out no loans, nor use credit cards for our wedding. So finding things we could afford has been a little challenging. But it also helps in a lot of ways to. Not the least of which is how relaxed we will both be on our honeymoon knowing it is all paid for and we don't have any huge bills to come home to.

    How long did you and FI date before engagement?  4.5 years

    How long between first date and wedding date? 6.5 years

    How's the wedding planning going? Any blips or bumps in the road? I'm not actually doing much planning, since it's easy to plan for just two! I'm currently working on picking out the fabric for my gown (I'm having one made to actually get what I want!) and waiting to hear from the celebrant to make sure she got our paperwork. We spent over $100 just getting everything we needed to apply for a marriage license. So, that was surely the biggest unexpected thing.

    Next major project to tackle? have my dress made and buy FI's outfit and ring!

    How's the wedding planning going? Any blips or bumps in the road?
     The small ceremony planning is going well, but I'm knitting my dress which is taking a big of time and patience.  The reception planning has yet to start as it is next year and I can't even talk to the place where we want to hold the reception yet as they only do it a year in advance.  I'd say the only discouragement is all the "Whys?" about having the big reception next year.  We both got married the first time due to unplanned pregnancies and neither of our weddings were the way we would have wanted them.  This time, we want to celebrate with all the friends and family who couldn't be/weren't there the first time.  Money is tight this year, so we're doing the ceremony VERY small and having a nice dinner after with immediate family.  Yes, we could wait, but we figure...  WHY?

    How long did you and FI date before engagement? That's an interesting question techinically we met online in September of 2010 but offically met in December of 2010.  We then had a few bumps along the way but got engaged in October of 2011.

    Next major project to tackle?Well because I was suppose to get married in July of 2012 most of my planning is done.  The only major things I have left are BM dresses, flowers, cake, and invitations.  The rest is all done.
