    Four years

    11.  When did you get engaged and how did he do it??  
    November 21, 2009. He told me we had gotten a free room at the Hilton downtown. There was champagne and chocolates when we got to our room and he proposed to me with the estate ring I had been pining after for 6 months...it was on layaway so I thought someone else was getting it! Then we went to our favorite restaurant and our parents were there. We then went to a bar we love and all our closest friends and family were there to celebrate with us! It was perfect!

    16.
      Where are you honeymooning?  
    We are not sure yet. We might just do a minimoon and then do an all inclusive resort in Mexico a few months later.


    17.
      Favorite wedding vendor so far? 
    I don't have one. I can truly say I love them all!

    18.
      Biggest wedding splurge? 
    Probably my dress. I'm planning on selling it after though.

    19.
      What is the most exciting thing about wedding planning so far? 
    Seeing all our ideas come together and knowing the day is going to be so us and we will be married so soon!

    20.
      What have you guys agreed or disagreed on? Any happy mediums? 
    We've agreed on almost everything. Disagreements mostly come because he tells me to show him ideas and then he has SO many opinions on what he likes and doesn't like! But, I have to thankful he wants to be so involved! Colors were a happy medium, we each picked one we liked!

    21.
      What is something you wish you could have at the wedding but don't? 
    A band, we just couldn't afford it. We have an awesome DJ though.

    Yes! My god daughter will be our flower girl too!
