Introducing myself

Hi everyone! I've been a lurker for a while now, but I decided that I would finally step out of the shadows and join in the fun. :) I think I've posted maybe only once before... so perhaps I better introduce myself! 

FI and I were engaged in May, and are getting married on June 5, 2010. I'm a nurse, and he's a computer programmer. I feel very behind on wedding planning-- and the Knot checklist isn't helping! BUT I did pick up my dress yesterday after alterations, and now that it is in my possession, I'm definitely feeling like things are starting to come together. :) 

Thanks for all the advice/ideas you all have shared! I'm looking forward to participating from now on...

    Yahoo for getting the dress done!  Welcome to the board too!  As for the TK checklist, I skim it every now and then, but honestly, I pretty much ignore it. Tongue out  What else have you been able to take care of so far?

    HI! Love the details of theme and colors. I have a weird habit of loving to find stuff for other people's weddings (while completely procrastinating on mine!)

    Well, let's see. We're having a pretty traditional afternoon church wedding, followed by a reception in the church hall. Our families live all over the country (world, actually), so most of our guests are coming from OOT, but somehow we're still looking at about 125 or so!

    As far as themes go, we don't really have one, but our colors are dark purple and silver. Hm. What else do we have done? STDs just arrived in the mail the other day but I haven't gotten them addressed and sent out yet! My dress is pretty much taken care of. We've lined up a photographer.

    My next project is a caterer and bridesmaid dresses, I think. :) Meanwhile, FI has recently gotten into researching honeymoon options, so I'm leaving that up to him! I suppose that I should get a bio going, too, huh!

    Oh, and I forgot our engagement story! 

    We met through mutual friends at a get-together shortly after I'd moved back to Seattle from PA (I grew up here but was on the east coast for 12 years), and started dating shortly thereafter. We dated for about a year and a half before he proposed, although we pretty much knew early on that we were going to get married! I suspected that he'd bought a ring, and was eagerly anticipating a proposal, but somehow he still managed to catch me off guard. :) It's kind of a long story, but anyway, he ended up proposing on the beach at Alki just after sunset on Memorial Day weekend. :)

    And thanks for all the warm welcomes!!
