October 2014 Weddings

GTKY

Since there seems to be more and more new October brides, I figure we should all get to know each other! Feel free to share as much or as little as you want. :)

My name (or what you all can call me): You can call me JD
Fiance's name: D
Wedding date: October 4, 2014 (for now)
Wedding colors: Still deciding. We will probably go with a fall theme - orange, black, red, etc. I would like a fall theme bouquet and my bridesmaids will probably wear black dresses.
Location: Michigan
Age (you and FI): I'm 24 and he's 25. We will both be 26 when we get married.
How long have you been dating/engaged: Dating for four years, engaged for two years.
Any pets? (bonus points for PIPs): One cat - T. See my sig below for pics!
Random facts or anything else you would like to share: I'm a huge procrastinator so I have done basically nothing so far. We've looked at the ceremony venue and the date that we want is fully open, so we will probably book there next month!

Re: GTKY

  • Fun idea! :) 

    My name (or what you all can call me): Leah
    Wedding date: October 4, 2014
    Wedding colors: We're pretty set on black and red, but we're still far out enough that it could change.
    Location: Florida

    How long have you been dating/engaged: Dating for a year and a half, living together for 9 months, engaged for less than 2 months!
    Any pets? (bonus points for PIPs): Our sweet kitten, Hobbes!
    Random facts or anything else you would like to share: Our engagement is so long because FH wants to graduate from Grad school and get a job with benefits in the field he is pursuing before we marry. He graduates this December and we figured a year and a half is enough time for him to find a job (knock on wood!)

    Posted by justdance93[/QUOTE]

    If you see something you want for your wedding at the store, don't buy it right away. Look on TK and craigslist.

    Don't ask your girls until at most a yr out to around the 9 month mark. Relationships/people change.

    Have fun!

    I've started my "For Sale" website so if anyone is looking for something in particular, come on over to October 2013 board and ask.

    Enjoy ladies!

  • This is a great idea :)

    I love that all us October 2014 ladies thus far are pet owners, and all but one are cat owners!

    My name (or what you all can call me): Leen
    Wedding date: October 12, 2014
    Wedding colors: I'm not set on this, but am thinking a deep purple and green or an orange-y red and gold.

    Age (you and FI): I'm 27 and he's 28. We'll be 29/30 when we get married. 
    How long have you been dating/engaged: We started dating in November 2009, became exclusive in November 2011, and got engaged on March 1st 2013. 
    Any pets? (bonus points for PIPs): Two cats: Pinky and Floyd. Pinky's the introverted fraidy princess cat who only bonds with her Mam and Dad, and Floyd's a social ham and is always finding boxes to plop into to and will bury his head into our faces and hands. Their hair is all over me all the time, as I'm sure many of you can relate to. 
    Random facts or anything else you would like to share:  After an extensive search, we booked our venue:
    http://www.gramercymansion.com/! My FI half-joked that he wanted the cats to attend the ceremony and reception. I've been to a wedding where the bride's dog was the ringbearer, and the thought of making one of our cats a ringbearer is hilarious. We're thinking of incorporating games into our wedding, FI wants a moonbounce but the venue rep kinda laughed when I asked about it so we may settle for cornhole :)
