Roll Call...

I'm noticing some new names, YAY!
Things have been slow here since they updated the format of the site, but I'm so happy to see some newbies!
Let's introduce ourselves to make everyone feel welcome.

I'm Mel, my DH is Glenn.  We're 33 and 35.   We just got married in October, after being together for almost 6.5 years!  I'm a legal assistant, he's a math teacher.  We live in Dover, NH with our 2 cats, and are enjoying married life so far.

    I'm still trying to check in around here every once in awhile. I've been having some issues with the site since they changed the format, but I'll try to keep popping in from time to time!

    I'm Liza, DH is Sean. We got married on 9/12/09 in Rome, ME. We live in Portland with our two dogs, he works for Key Bank and I work for AAA.

    Great idea! I'm Mindy, FI is Will, and we got engaged in April. Our wedding is June 12 at Shawnee Peak in Bridgton. We live in the southern Midcoast area.

    We've got lots of the major things booked for the wedding, but I'm realizing there are lots of little things left to be done. I haven't done much wedding stuff for the past month or so, but plan to get back on it after the New Year, so I'll probably be back on here more asking questions and getting advice.

    Welcome to all the new people!

    I haven't been checking in as much, either.  The new Knot runs a lot slower, even without the Knot tv.  I try to pop by when I get a minute, but it's been awfully busy lately.

    I'm Allie and DH is Walker.  We're 23 and 24 and we also just got married this October.  I'm a paralegal and he is a copy editor.  We live in Yarmouth with our two cats and are very glad to be back to "normal" after the holidays and wedding planning.  We're looking forward to just relaxing and spending some quality time with each other.

    Hi everyone! I'm new here and just beginning to think about all of the planning.

    I'm Paula and FI is Anthony. We have been engaged for about a week now, but we've been together for 4 and a half years. We are both 21 and are thinking about August 2011 for the wedding. :) I still have no idea about venue or anything, but I'm excited to start looking. We're from Bath, but live in Waterville right now.

    DH= Dear (or damn, depending on the context:) hubby
    FI= fiance

    Ross and I (I'm jena) have been together for 5.5 years now; he proposed at sunrise on our fifth anniversary in Bar Harbor.  I'm 27, and Ross is 28; we're both servers and students here in Bangor.

    We have always talked about a fall wedding, and are looking at Oct2010.  Our plan was to get a nice weekly rental and stay there with all the people that flew in for the wedding... However..... after spending a month in negotiations with a venue, only to have it fall through (owner kept tacking new fees on).  I've placed venue finding "completely" in Ross's hands.  He was the one that wanted the big wedding, and I'm the one stressing and planning it all.  My current plan is to try and talk him into "eloping," earlier in the year (May-ish) to Scotland and  honeymoon... then coming back and doing something smaller-scale (and lower-key) for a reception.  We'll see.  

    I've just hit this place where... I don't know.  I want to be married, but I don't want to GET married.  It's not worth the stress and the money to throw some big party for your family and friends to attend, on a day that's supposed to be about the couple.  I like the idea of planning a wedding, if I had a reasonable budget.  Plus, I wanted a smaller scale wedding to begin with.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm Kelly and FI is Matt. We've been engaged for almost 2 years and were planning on having our wedding on June 5, but because of some financial reasons we had to push the date back to October 2. I'm so ready to be done with the planning and stress. We're getting married in Wells and we currently live in Bangor.

    I'm Kristin, FI is Doug we are 24 and 27 both from Aroostook County.  He is an electrician/instrumentation tech at a local mill, I am a medical student, planning on becoming an emergency room physician.  He still lives up there, I'm down in Scarborough (I attend UNECOM).  Once I've completed my education I will be moving back up there - which is why he didn't move down with me.  We've been together for 8 years, we met at one of my high school ski races at Sunday river (his sister raced with me)...which is also where he proposed last March Smile.  We are planning a July 2011 wedding, slowly looking at venues but haven't locked into anything as we don't have a completed guest list yet!

    I'm Kaitlyn and my FI is David. I work at a manufacturing company in Sanford that is rapidly growing and David is a student. I'm very very new to the site but looking for ways to budget for our wedding. David and I met in college and started dating after he went for his graduate degree. He goes to the University of Maine School of Law. We've been together two years and David gave me the shock of a lifetime when he proposed. I just never thought I would get married so young! I'm 22 now and will be 24 when we get married (July 2011) and he'll be 27. We're planning for a huge wedding in Portland (which is where D's from and likely where we'll live after the wedding) and I am nervous about everything wedding related but pretty excited too!
