Happy to Be Here

Hi Ladies,
                I'm new here, my boyfriend proposed on christmas morning and we have decided on June 1st 2014 as the date (I know its a long way from here). I was super excited to get started planning, however family crazyness (my side is 200 strong and all nuttyier than a fruit cake) has me thinking of putting it off.
I live in the Caribbean, on the island of Barbados, and will be getting married here so I would love any planning tips and advise you ladies have for me.

I been lurking for forever and am really happy to finally be the bride.

  • Congrats and welcome to the board !! We are to help anyway we can. Happy Planning and just take a breather !!
  • Welcome! I agree with nursing, you may wanna take a breather for a minute. I know I had too. Cause jumping right in with planning will make you lose it. I did this and had to take a step back! LOL! Any of the ladies here will tell you, "planning constantly and early gets old quick." Sooooo....You have a date, next is vision and budget. Once budget is solid, go from there. Once again, welcome to theeee BEST board!

  • Welcome to the best board on TK!!! Congratulations on your engagement!  I also agree with nursing, MissusD, & Key!  Take a moment to just be simply engaged.  Right now, the only thing you and fiance should be doing is coming up with a budget...not how many ppl you will invite. You can also begin researching vendors if you don't know who you want already. Now, would be a good time to get pricing.  Lastly, you and fiance can simply discuss what type of wedding you two want. Other than those things, enjoy your time being engaged. People will continue to ask questions...when's the big day, how many attendants, where will it be, etc etc. Just tell them "they will be the first to know. Right now you are just enjoying this marvelous time of being engaged" :-)

    Happy planning,
