Hello Knotties! What's your wedding like?

I just posted a desperate post asking for advice, without introducing myself to you girls!

My name is Chelsea and my Fiance's name is Paul. We've been together 3 years and are getting married December 2012.  I don't know why I was freaking out about the wedding - it's like 644 days away and I have plenty of time!

I only know one other girl who's getting married, and she's getting married on a cruise with only 15 friends and family - so I want to talk WEDDINGS!!

Tell me about your wedding! I'm so excited for all of us I may just pee my pants!

How did you meet?

Do you have a theme?
What are you the most excited about?

    Ashley - that's so exciting you're moving into a new house! I had the biggest crush on my high school math teacher, so I think it's great you're marrying one. Are you going with traditional fall wedding colors or including Molly May (adorable name!) in the ceremony?

    Pickles - I hope that's a nickname :)  are you getting married right in Detroit? My FI's brother (FBIL?) got married in May last year up in Lexington, MI and May is really beautiful wedding weather!!

    jhawthorne - I love that you're high school sweethearts - adorable! Are you having a big wedding? I can't wait to see Paul's face when I'm walking down the aisle either! I swear, I'll at least get one tear out of him!

    As for me...
    Paul and I met at Toys R Us! We're going for a Christmas-y (not red and green) theme. I want more of the feeling you have on Christmas, when you have all of your family around and everybody's happy. That's my fav. We just picked our reception venue today, actually! The Palazzo Grande in Shelby twp - it's absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to get in there and have our day!

    Hi Chelsea!! Welcome to the board! :)

    How did you meet?  It's kinda a long story, but my fiance Paul (Wink) and I met at his sister's high school graduation party.  Long story short, his family moved back to Philadelphia the next day (Paul alway lived in Philly) and 4 years later he messaged me out of the blue through...ahem...myspace.  Messages lead to emails, emails to visits, visits to engagment!

    When is your wedding? August 6, 2011

    Do you have a theme?  I like to say it's "1940s inspired."

    What are you the most excited about?  Hmmm...I don't think I can nail that down to any one thing!  My uncle/Goddfather is marrying else which I think is really special.

    And anything else you want to talk about!  I have a grant due.  I shouldn't be on here!!!

    First off, welcome to the board!  Congrats on the engagement!  It seems you already have a clear mind of what you want although it's not to the end of next year.  It's great because you can focus on details for almost 2 years. :P  

    How did you meet? We met through work, downriver.  He transferred to Troy and when he came back, we decided we were in love, lol.  Here is a cliffnotes version: we got engaged in April '09, planned our wedding for 05/14/10, found out we were pregnant in July, ran off to Ohio and got married 07/14/09, had a beautiful baby boy 02/14/10, decided to renew our vows and get married in Church.  It was set for 07/14/10, but we changed it to a Friday to save money.  
    When is your wedding? July 13, 2012
    Do you have a theme? Don't have an actual theme, but we have colors picked: teal, chartreuse, and yellow.  
    What are you the most excited about? My dress, the venue, the DIY stuff, being able to actually have our friends and family there, and last but not least, being able to marry the man of my dreams in the eyes of God.  
    And anything else you want to talk about! Hmmm, not much else.  Here's a picture to make you smile: 

    My father-in-law is holding candy.  My baby and the dog are begging for candy. :)

    Welcome to the board & happy planning!

    How did you meet?
    We met randomly at Arts, Beats, and Eats one year.  He was up in a window & I was on the street with my friend.  It's so funny to think about now!

    When is your wedding?
    June 25, 2011

    Do you have a theme?
    Sort of - it's kind of "garden" like maybe. 

    What are you the most excited about?
    Everything honestly.  I cannot wait for it to get here!  (But I can of course, since I still have lots to get done still lol)

    How did you meet? On e-harmony. It was so cool!

    When is your wedding? 8/27/11, which is 3 years and 364 days before the 4th anniversary of our first date (which will  happen at midnight on our wedding day!)

    Do you have a theme? I didn't think I did, but as it turns out the black & white/cream toile I have as a recurring pattern is fairly vintage

    What are you the most excited about? Before the wedding, finishing my dress, LOL. It's been laid out and cut in my mind dozens of times, now have to get on to making it.

    On our wedding day: Our first look in the gardens of our venue (if it doesn't rain) and then seeing our reception room pulled together by my DOC and caterer with all the DIY stuff I have.

    How did you meet? At work. We are both CPAs and for a month we spent upwards of 14 hours a day in a small room together working on a job. I had the biggest crush on him the whole time but thought he didn't like me. Our manager bet him to ask me out and 3 years later here we are :) When is your wedding? 9/24/2011 Do you have a theme? Not really. However, my motto for the wedding is "drama free" and so far that has held true. What are you the most excited about? To start our married life. And anything else you want to talk about! Nope :)

    Congratulations on your engagement and happy planning!


    How did you meet?
      Through Match.com. I was just about to disable my account when I decided to respond to this one last guy who had sent me a message like a few weeks before. We ended up talking all night and I learned that he lived only a few blocks from my house! We went out the next day and the rest is history.
    When is your wedding?  Sunday, May 27, 2012 (Memorial Day weekend)
    Do you have a theme?  Not really but I guess you could say it's a Fairy Tale theme.
    What are you the most excited about?  Losing a massive amount of weight and watching my in-laws jaws hit the floor because I'm going to be stunning in my dress. But really I just want to see the look on FI's face when I'm all done up.
    And anything else you want to talk about!  About to go cuddle up with FI. He's napping on the daybed and i think the dog is somewhere under the covers lol.

    Hi and Welcome :) My name is Emily and I'm fairly new here too.

    How did you meet?
    Someone randomly invited Fi to my 19th birthday party.  

    When is your wedding?
    May 12, 2012

    Do you have a theme?
    We don't have a theme....but I'm using W Hotels as the inspiration for look and feel

    What are you the most excited about?
    Just getting to see the vision realized and sharing that with FI, family and friends...and hopefully getting to eat some of the food...it's to die for :)

    And anything else you want to talk about!
    I'm awful about making decisions about the wedding...can't commit to colors, linens, etc., so any help is ALWAYS welcomed in my book.
    Venue: Book Cadillac imageimage
