    Theme/feel of your wedding?

    we're shooting for a vintage vibe with pinks and greens.

    Where are you honeymooning?

    not sure yet. we want tropical though!

    What irritates you the most about your FI?

    hm. as cliche as it is, he leaves his crap all over the house. ALL OVER the house.

    How long after the wedding do you plan to start having kids, if you don't already?

    i have a squirming 6 month old in my lap as i type this.

    What did you eat for breakfast?

    nothing yet. see entry about squirming infant.

    What are you most excited about for the wedding?

    not sure. maybe privately.

    Fun!!!

    Theme/feel of your wedding?
    Sort of a casual elegance I guess you'd call it?

    Where are you honeymooning?
    We are doing a Eastern Caribbean cruise! Stops are Bahamas, St. Thomas, and St Maarten. We were originally going to do Hawaii, but we just moved to Florida and figured we could drive to the port for a cruise and save on plane costs. (Cost of entire cruise which includes everything except alcohol is just barely more expensive than plane tickets to Hawaii alone!!)

    What irritates you the most about your FI?
    I love and hate that he is such a perfectionist. Sometimes it drives me crazy because he takes forever to do the simplest tasks! But then when it comes to thinks like DIY invitations, his perfectionism is greatly appreciated. :)

    How long after the wedding do you plan to start having kids, if you don't already?
    We are probably going to wait a while. FI is in the military and we want to be closer to him getting out before we start. Maybe in like 8 years?

    What did you eat for breakfast?
    A homemade smoothie and oatmeal! Delicious!

    What are you most excited about for the wedding?
    Having a great party with our amazing friends and family!

    Do you think you will ever renew your vows?

    Probably not, I'm having a hard time getting FI to declare his love for me in public the first time. :)
  • edited December 2011
    I have to call in orders too!! And make every reservation for ANYTHING we ever do as well. Once I asked him to call ahead for a restaurant since we had a big group because I was in the middle of something and it was like I asked him to strip naked or something!

    Theme/feel of your wedding? Laid-back and beachy, though our reception is indoors now. Where are you honeymooning? Shooting for Florida, beach and parks, in march/April What irritates you the most about your FI? He takes a lot of time to think about things and will never just say something to say it..so he is ALWAYS right! And not in the way that most men just always think they're right, he's legitimately right and it's so frustrating. How long after the wedding do you plan to start having kids, if you don't already? Prime example..I want them now, maybe even yesterday. FI wants us to get in a better position before kids, probably having them in a a year and a half or so. What did you eat for breakfast? Iced coffee. What are you most excited about for the wedding? All our friends and family sharing such an important and exciting day with us! Do you think you will ever renew your vows? I can see us doing something small, beachy and alone someday. It's what FI really wanted anyways and I wish we could have something just for the two of us now.

    Theme/feel of your wedding?
    Rustic/elegant.

    Where are you honeymooning?
    No plans yet.  I'm switching jobs and we're moving 2 months after the wedding, so it's not a good time for it.  FI would like to go to New Zealand/Australia at some point, but I don't really want to have an adventure honeymoon, just a relaxing one, so we'll see. 

    What irritates you the most about your FI?
    He procrastinates and forgets stuff more than I do.  One thing lately that bothers me is that he forgets to turn his phone off from silent after an event (or leaves his phone upstairs while he's doing stuff downstairs when I'm out), and then I cannot get in touch with him. 

    How long after the wedding do you plan to start having kids, if you don't already?
    Probably depends on how my new job is, but I would guess in the next 2-4 years. 

    What did you eat for breakfast?
    Green tea and a package of oatmeal with dates and flax in it (I get lots of random food from Ocean State Job Lot). 

    What are you most excited about for the wedding?
    Seeing friends and family that are coming up, and then it being over and just being married. 

    Do you think you will ever renew your vows?
    At this point, I think it's unlikely we'd do that.

    Theme/feel of your wedding?
    Theme is Margaritas and a Movie - not sure of the feel

    Where are you honeymooning?
    Baltimore (3 Red Sox games at Camden Yards) and Washington DC

    What irritates you the most about your FI?
    He hates to speak up about things in restaurants or stores when something is wrong.

    How long after the wedding do you plan to start having kids, if you don't already?  Definitely depends on how soon I get an admin job.  If I get a job now, we would start sooner than later.

    What did you eat for breakfast?
    Left over cake from my shower this past weekend.

    What are you most excited about for the wedding?
    Everything!!!

    Do you think you will ever renew your vows?
    No

    While it's no Fenway, Camden Yards is a beautiful park!! We were in Baltimore for a wedding and went to a game the day after to watch them play the Yankees and I really enjoyed the park. It's HUGE!! Although I found it extremely odd that the had a Panda Express in the park. However, since then I've been to a ton of parks and all the newer ones are leaning towards food like this. It doesn't seem like baseball food to me!  Although I'm bias because nothing beats a Fenway Frank and a beer. Man, I miss Fenway!!

    Theme/feel of your wedding?  Classic and elegant.

    Where are you honeymooning?  The great state of Maine!  (Bethel and Kennebunk)
     
    What irritates you the most about your FI?  He leaves the god da*n toilet seat up!  Always!!!

    How long after the wedding do you plan to start having kids, if you don't already?  The honeymoon.  And that's no joke - we're going LIVE!  lol

    What did you eat for breakfast?  2 eggs

    What are you most excited about for the wedding?  Other than becoming Mrs Smith, it would be treating our friends and family to an awesome party and weekend in Maine. 

    Do you think you will ever renew your vows?   Hadn't really thought about it actually.  I guess time will tell...  If we did, probably not with a big party attached to it.  It would be more for just the two of us or us and our children.

    Yes, I love Camden Yards.  My first visit was a few years ago when I was in Baltimore to present at a National Conference.  We had a reception at Camden Yards, got a tour, and even got to sit in the visiting dugout!  That summer, FI and I went on a road trip and saw two Sox games there!  This year we'll be going to all three.  We plan on making a sign about Honeymooning with the Red Sox, and we're in the first row the second night, so we hope that we get on TV with it!
