    Town/State of Wedding Location: Clifton, NJ

    Wedding Date: 11/09/2013

    Colors/Theme: Red wine, Browns, Orange, Yellow/Fall

    Venue: The Bethwood - Booked for us by my parents as a Christmas present!

    Describe the wedding in one sentence or less: A late afternoon Russian Orthodox wedding with apples, acorns, cranberries and leaves - surrounded by our closest family and friends.

    Favorite part of planning: Realizing that my fiance and I want the same things in the wedding and in life - and having my Mom as my planner, believe it or not.

    Most-anticipated part of the day: Seeing my fiance's face as I walk down the isle.

    Why november: Many reasons.  For one, Fall is my favorite season.  Winter is too cold/too big a chance of snow.  I'm allergic to Spring, and Summer is just too hot.  Plus we want to go to Disney World for our Honeymoon - the climate in central FL is temperate at that time of year!

    One thing you aren't looking forward to: Watching my bank account starve.

    1 thing we wouldn't know about you posting on the boards:  I was a complete Tomboy until the age of 26 - about a year before I got engaged.  Perfect timing, I'd say!

    Why november: I love the Fall, and don't want to be too warm & humid.

    One thing you aren't looking forward to: Hmmm. Trying to get any sleep the night before, from excitement!

    1 thing we wouldn't know about you posting on the boards: My fiance and I were friends online for ten years before we even met. When we did, we fell in love and we've been together a year and a half now. It's wonderful!

  • Hello! 

    Town/State of Wedding Location: Houston, TX
    Wedding Date: 11.09.2013!
    Colors/Theme: Haven't decided yet -- blue with some other color, but I vary between green and orange and pink and yellow and . . . . 

    Venue: Haven't found this either! Ceremony will probably be in a Catholic church and reception somewhere nearby (indoors).

    Describe the wedding in one sentence or less: Classic with a relaxed, fun feel, and also dancing.

    Favorite part of planning:  I'm a big fan of planning spreadsheets. Looking forward to actually picking things!
    Most-anticipated part of the day:  The exit, when it's just the two of us and we can finally say "WE PULLED IT OFF!!" :) And of course, seeing his face for the first time in my dress. 

    Why November:  Climate will be better - since we're getting married in Houston, I was afraid a summer wedding would be pretty unbearable. Also, FI and I are both starting new jobs this October so I wanted us to have time to work before we asked for a bunch of days off.

    One thing you aren't looking forward to: Having to tell anyone "no"? Also my parents are paying for most of the wedding (which is great) but I'm really afraid they won't set a budget, and then I'll fall in love with something we can't afford. I need to get them on that!

    1 think we wouldn't know about you posting on the boards - Honestly the first thing that came to mind was "I have brown eyes!" so I guess I'll go with that!


    :) Looking forward to the board growing as the date gets closer!
