Happy planning ladies.... Looking forward to this journey with you all!!!!
@drmass2013 guuurrrrllllll I am trying... It's been a trying experience.. trust!!! LOL... I am trying to get as much done as possible before students return and classes resume... if not, I will find myself choking somebody right around mid-Spring semester.... LOL.. That's not a good look.... So, I'll be a busy little bee until then.
When we first got engaged we had started planning with the idea of a desitination wedding to Key West... then i started thinking about all the planning and headaches that come with planning from a far, and that plan was 86'ed quickly.... But at least, you all have family/friends wehre you're planning, which should make it a little easier.....
Happy Planning and Enjoy the process, as much as possible!! :-)

I am all of the above!!!!! LOL
I am a twin as well --- in Vegas!
Getting Hitches 08/09/2014
My date is August 8th. Can I hop on this board with y'all? I'm planning from afar too...South Korea! I'm from Green Bay (Go Packers!) and moved here about six years ago. I met my fiance in my first year, and my heart belongs here now! Anyway, we're technicaly getting married in South Korea in April and then will be celebrating with my family and friends in August.
If anyone's interested, there are a TON of differences between weddings here and in the US. Here a western-style ceremony (which most couples opt for) takes about twenty minutes and then your guests eat a buffet and then they all leave. Also, the weddings are usually in a building where one floor is the wedding hall which will have maybe three or four other weddings happening in different halls (rooms) and then the buffet will be on the floor above or below and all the guests from the different wedding parties share the same space. Weddings are not very emotional here. It's more like a business transaction. As a guest, you pay cash and then you get a meal. There are no registries.
My fiance and I will be having a traditional wedding which means we both dress up in hanbok, the traditional Korean clothing, and we'll to the old customs. We'll still have a buffet for everyone after. Also, everything comes together as a "package" here. The flowers and photographer is provided by the wedding venue so you just pick "modern package" or "romantic package" and the flowers and decor are part of the venue price.
Sorry if that's rambling, but its interesting seeing how different things are in other places in the world. OH, AND in the "western style" wedding, they cut a cake durring the ceremony which no one eats. yeah.... I was shocked. I told my fiance that that's gonna be one of the most important parts of our wedding in the US...the cake!
