North Carolina

Hello everyone!

Just thought I'd pop in and introduce myself! My name is Emily, FI is Craig! Right now our tentative wedding date is Oct 29, 2011. We are both from the Wilmington area, but currently stuck in Dallas, TX (BOOOOO). So naturally we are planning to get married in Wilmywood.

Our wedding date depends on two things...first is his best man. He is in the Navy, and we are waiting to make sure he isn't going to be on deployment for the wedding, because, well, that would suck! Second is Craig himself! He is planning to go overseas himself for a contract job in September. It's a year contract, so if all goes according to plan he would be back next September. So here is hoping!

We both want an outside wedding, but not on the beach (I'm thinking the river). And right now still in the early planning stages, as our money is going towards getting him ready to go over (passport, physical etc.). I hope to get to know you all better, and good luck with all your own planning! ^_^

    Congrats and welcome.  The board is a little slow on weekends, but there's typically a lot happening during the week.  Sounds like you've got a good idea of what you'd like already.  October is the best month for weddings :).  I'd caution you about setting too many decisions in stone right away.  A lot of things can change in a  year, and you may regret some of your decisions later.  There are ton of people who would say you shouldn't choose your wedding party this early, especially.

    Hope you'll stick around :)

    Welcome to the boards, I'm in the Raleigh area, but I'm getting married in Wilmington. Awedding on the river will be beautiful. You should check out the riverdeck.

    I also agree with Mary about making too many decisions this early, especially the wedding party.

    I look forward to getting to know you. :o)

    It's so funny..i've noticed on a lot of boards how it's always slow on weekends...I guess I know what people do at work! LOL. and I hear you all on the decisions...i've changed the colors numerous times, the time of day etc. The only thing set in stone is the best man, and thats because him and FI have been best brother like buds since the 6th grade (they even went into the navy together!). But yeah, a lot can happen in a year!

    Hi and congrats! I'm Ashley and DH is Matt.  We got married in Raleigh in May of this year.  My best friend is from Wilmington and I loooove it! We go there often in the summers.  A wilmington wedding would be fabulous.  This past April, my best friend got married downtown at St. James Episcopal church (her DH's dad is the head priest there) and her reception was at the Carolina Yacht Club on Wrightsville Beach.  :)
