    Tell me a little about yourself:

    What do you do (job/school)?

    I currently work at Lowes, I'll be going back to school to be an LVN, possibly continue on to be an RN, I'm not sure yet. 

     

    What’s your favorite beverage at the moment?

    Coffee, always coffee.  I love the stuff

     

    How old are you?

    28


    What area do you live in?

    West Chicagoland Suburbs

     

    How did you meet your FI?

    Through friends.  One of my friend's house burned down after lightning hit it, and she had to stay with a friend, who is friends with my FI.  So we met during a weekly monday night friend hang out, he got my number a few months later, and the rest is history! :)

     

    Do you have any pets?

    Technically, I do, she is a cat.  But she lives with my mom now in CA cause my FI is horribly allergic to cats.

     

    What’s your favorite food?

    I don't know, I suppose mexican food.  I could eat it 7 days a week.

     

    What was your favorite thing to plan for the wedding so far? Least favorite?

    My favorite was the dress.  Least favorite has been the guest list.  I'm still trying to wrangle addresses from my mom and FMIL

     

    How did you pick your wedding date?

    We were originally looking at getting married on the 24th, but it was booked.  So we picked the day after, the 25th.  It is memorial weekend, but we are okay with that.  Partially because its an extra long weekend, but we have our best shot at good weather here in the midwest.  But it turns out, 25 is totally our number!  He is born Feb 25, I'm born June 25, and now our wedding date is May 25! :)

     

    What are your wedding colors/ theme?

    Our wedding colors are dark purple, and light grey.  I wanted grey for sure, cause my FI would look AMAZING in a grey suit. :)

    This is fun, I love getting to know everyone better!

    What do you do (job/school)?

    I went to school for Communications and I've been working at Mars (M&M's) for almost four years now doing different things in HR. I actually just found out about that I got my a promotion (FINALLY, after four years!) last week. I'm so excited.

    What’s your favorite beverage at the moment?

    I seriously only drink water. Every time I sip something else, it's just a sip and that's it.

    How old are you?

    25

    What area do you live in?

    North Jersey

    How did you meet your FI?

    Through a mutual friend (his best friend from growing up is my good friend from work)

    Do you have any pets?

    FI does - a Jack Russell terrier named Artie - he's the most hyper creature I've ever come in contact with

    What’s your favorite food?

    Crab cakes, I think. Phenomenal finger food.

    What was your favorite thing to plan for the wedding so far? Least favorite?

    It's hard to pick a favorite thing, but I'd have to say the venue - I fell in love with it immediately and never wanted to leave. The cake is a really close second though. That was every bit as fun as it should be.

    Least favorite was picking the tuxes. I was so overwhelmed. I'm a really visual person so it bothered me that we couldn't even have him try anything on. But I think we ended up with the right thing.

    How did you pick your wedding date?

    I always knew I wanted to get married in May and FI had no preference. When I asked the site coordinator about a date in May she said the 10th and 17th were available. My mom made a joke and said we should pick 5/17 because the venue is actually on Route 517 so she would never forget our anniversary and that was that (she also said the ceremony should start at 5:17 but that was too much for me).

    What are your wedding colors/ theme?

    White and metallics - silver and mercury glass and maybe a little bit of gold

    I'm hoping my iPad keeps the spacing... Haha

    What do you do (job/school)?
    Account/licensing escalations for an international software company

    What’s your favorite beverage at the moment?
    Grapefruit Perrier!

    How old are you?
    26

    What area do you live in?
    Ontario, Canada

    How did you meet your FI?
    We lived around the corner from each other, I worked at the corner store (putting myself through school), and he was friends with one of my coworkers.

    Do you have any pets?
    We're putting my 17-year-old Jack Russell down tomorrow :(

    What’s your favorite food?
    Anything with (real) cheese. Seriously. And wine. Does wine count? Haha

    What was your favorite thing to plan for the wedding so far? Least favorite?
    FLOWERS. Least fave has been guest list because we're keeping it so small.

    How did you pick your wedding date?
    FI looked at the calendar and saw that May 24th was a Saturday and available, and went, "May 2-4! Yes! I'll always remember that!" For those who don't know, Victoria Day is a holiday Monday in May in Canada, and since it often falls around the 24th, we colloquially refer to it as the May 2-4 (two-four) weekend.

    What are your wedding colors/ theme?
    Blush, peach, pink tones (all warm), some ivory and some lavender (FI's fave colour is purple), and then grey accents (stone Carriage House, grey suits for guys, etc)


    ETA: spacing, because the iPad formatting stinks!

    What was your favorite thing to plan for the wedding so far? Least favorite?

    Favorite: the cake

    Least: the ceremony has given me the most headache because we lost our original location

     

    How did you pick your wedding date?

     I originally wanted a fall wedding, but didn't want to wait that long so I just randomly picked May. The 10th is Mother's Day weekend and the 24th is my niece's 18th birthday so we went with the 17th. I wish we had a cute story for it, but it was really just logistics.


    What are your wedding colors/ theme?

    Champagne, wine, and roses

    image
  • Great idea! I haven't been very active in here yet but here goes!

    What do you do (job/school)?

    I work in financial reporting (Senior Financial Analyst) at a film studio.

     

    What’s your favorite beverage at the moment?

    Champagne! Or if we're going non-alcoholic, it's gotta be a nice cold glass of milk.

     

    How old are you?

    26


    What area do you live in?

    Los Angeles, CA

     

    How did you meet your FI?

    We met in college, through a mutual friend (almost 7 years ago now! time flies)

     

    Do you have any pets?

    Not at the moment - current apartment doesn't allow pets, but we're thinking about getting a cat at our next place.

     

    What’s your favorite food?

    I'm going to second pumkinsandturkeys with the cheese - yum! Can you tell I grew up in Wisconsin, with all the dairy? Lol

     

    What was your favorite thing to plan for the wedding so far? Least favorite?

    I loved looking at venues, and I loved shopping for my dress - that said, making the final decisions on both of these was painstaking.


    Least favorite - guest list. Brutal. And once it was set, finding addresses... and full names... what a nightmare!

     

    How did you pick your wedding date?

    I always wanted a summer wedding, and May is beautiful here in Southern California (June tends to be a bit overcast, and by July it can get pretty hot). Since we have a lot of guests from out of town, we decided to schedule it for Memorial Day weekend (to allow guests extra travel time), and Saturday was taken at our venue, so voila! Sunday, May 25th it is!

     

    What are your wedding colors/ theme?

    Colors: Cranberry red, ivory, champagne. We don't really have a theme; I'm going for a classic romance kind of feel - lots of roses, pearl jewelry/decor accents.


  • What do you do (job/school)? I am a receptionist in a graduate department at a university.

     

    What’s your favorite beverage at the moment? I mostly just drink water. So boring.

     

    How old are you? 26


    What area do you live in? Chicagoland

     

    How did you meet your FI? I was sort-of seeing/"talking to"/casually dating one of his friends.

     

    Do you have any pets? Not yet.

     

    What’s your favorite food? Ice cream or frozen yogurt.

     

    What was your favorite thing to plan for the wedding so far? Least favorite? Cake tasting! That was fun--and we get to do a second one because my fiance wasn't there. Dress shopping was fun too. General logistic things aren't really so fun I would say. Finding a photographer was difficult, and trying to find a hotel to book a block at for our guests that is reasonable isn't easy either.

     

    How did you pick your wedding date? We wanted our engagement to be less than a year, we both hate summer and hot weather, we didn't want it to be too early spring because of snow/ice, we (he) didn't want it to be during the NCAA basketball tournament, and so in the spring our venue had 2 dates that worked in these parameters. One was the same as the big party weekend at our alma mater and so we chose the other.

     

    What are your wedding colors/ theme? My theme is marriage. HA. I'm thinking navy bridesmaid dresses because it looks good on everyone and is very versatile and I really love pastel peach, soft yellow, blush, soft green, and ivory flowers. Overall I suppose the wedding might have a slightly vintage feel due to our venue. And I kind of want to maybe do mint juleps if we can find a pre-made version or a recipe for bulk ones (we can byob) because our wedding is on derby day.

  • Loved reading and getting to know you ladies :)

  • What do you do (job/school)?

    A lot:  I'm in grad school.  I'm an art teacher at a Catholic school 2 days a week.  I just got a promotion at my other job; I'm now the Education & outreach Coordinator (aka the entire education, public programing, and outreach departments....basically the work of 4 people, plus administration duties so 5 people I guess lol) at a small house museum.  Once a month a do a toddler story/activity time at another small house museum.  I have also been doing some private art classes/lessons and babysitting for "pocket money" (aka cash that goes into my wallet and not the bank for bills/saving).

     

    What’s your favorite beverage at the moment?

    Water.  Or tea.  I'm getting over a cold from the weekend.  Although we ran out of tea at work so I've been making hot chocolate.

     

    How old are you?

    26.  Almost, my b-day is Nov. 23!!


    What area do you live in?

    Queens, NY

     

    How did you meet your FI?

    We both worked at our local movie theater.

     

    Do you have any pets?

    Yup.  We got a Boston Terrier puppy in Feb.  He turned 1 year old in Oct. and his name is Murphy.

     

    What’s your favorite food?

    Pizza.

     

    What was your favorite thing to plan for the wedding so far?

    My dress and the flowers.  Also the bridesmaids dresses, as it was the one time since our engagement party that all of my ladies were together in one place!

     

    Least favorite - invitations...how can one small piece of paper be so difficult to make a decision on!

     

    How did you pick your wedding date?

    I just liked the way 5.2.14 sounded lol!  Our "real" anniversary is in Aug, but it's 2 days before FI's bday so I didn't want our wedding to ever outshine his bday.  So since most of our celebrations are in late summer and fall, we picked spring.  Also cuz of the great weather - not too cold, not too hot!

     

    What are your wedding colors/ theme?

    Colors: navy & light pink. We don't really have a theme, but since we are getting married in a garden I'm kinda going along the lines of a romantic English garden feel.

  • this was a fun topic!i didnt post my information though. I do wanna say that after reading all of you ladies backstories it really makes me appreciate my own life and how everything has come to be. They were things I read on other posts that I was thinking to myself, "I'm glad that's not me! I don't want that job" and although it's not for me that doesn't mean it's bad for anyone else. These posts made me reflect on my life and realize how truly happy I am with how it's turned out so far..so thanks ladies!

  • @bellaluna290 I wish I thought more ahead about that.  However my body is currently out of wack with my cycle (thanks new bc) so it would have done me no good to plan around that.  I'm doing the crossing my fingers and praying I won't be on my period on my wedding day method.  Our honeymoon will happen later, so I'm not too worried about that. :)

    I'm obviously not a Dr but I was concerned about having my period on wedding day.  (Although with being on the pill its a lot lighter)  My Dr. recommended that I start the pack of pills on a Thursday instead of Sunday.  I take the last pill on a Saturday.  Monday my period starts...Thursday I start a new pack of pills and by Friday it's gone.  I've been doing this since last December and it's worked out well.

    Again I'm not a Dr but I guess it can't hurt to ask your gyno if it's an option.

  • @futuremrsn3312 That is a good idea.  Once my body goes back to normal (since right now its still trying to regulate to the new pill) I'll look into doing something like that.  And besides, my next appointment is in a few months, so I can ask in plenty of time before the wedding :)

    Since I can be a little too talkative I'm only answering a few questions :).

    What do you do (job/school)?

    I am a full time Senior Social Work student in Central Ohio (currently procrastinating studying for finals since this is my second to last semester!)

     How old are you?

    21 years old
    What area do you live in?

      When I'm not at college I live at home in Cincinnati Ohio

    How did you meet your FI?

     I met my fiance on Valentine's Day almost four years ago at dinner with some friends, and over time we became best friends, and then six months of being best friends he became my first date, my first (and only) boyfriend, a couple years later my first kiss, and now my future husband. 

     

    What was your favorite thing to plan for the wedding so far? Least favorite?

      I love gift registry! Which isn't really wedding planning per se, but I love it! Also ring browsing is definitely addictive....

    How did you pick your wedding date?

      I graduate from my university May 17th, and I'm not crazy enough to try to get married before the two weeks following graduation. Plus, I've always wanted a May wedding!

    What are your wedding colors/ theme?

    The best way to describe my wedding colors and theme is sharp and elegant.

  • What do you do (job/school)?
    I work as an academic assistant at a medical school. I absolutely love it as there is a lot of freedom in my schedule and no one micromanaging me. Even though its not my first job since college, I'm calling it my first grown up job :)
     
    What’s your favorite beverage at the moment?
     hot chocolate :) especially the salted caramel hot chocolate from starbucks! One of my favorite things about this time of the year (other than my birthday) is hot chocolate and all the cookies! Which of course are not helping me staying in shape for the wedding and honeymoon!

    How old are you?
    I'll be 28 next week!

    What area do you live in?
    I live in central Iowa

    How did you meet your FI?
    We met on eharmony. Rocky start via email but once we met in person everything just clicked! We'll be celebrating our wedding one day before our dating anniversary :)
     
    Do you have any pets?
    I have a Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix named Reese. And recently adopted his half brother from my sister. His name is Louie. Reese is mostly white with a few large brown spots and Louie has speckled black spots all over him. There super cute and friendly and way too energetic!

    What’s your favorite food?
    Chinese or Italian
     
    What was your favorite thing to plan for the wedding so far? Least favorite?
     So far, I loved touring our venue. It's a historical building so its absolutely gorgeous! And we both loved it - really got us excited about the wedding (well more so than we already were). Least would be the bridesmaid dresses. Finding the has become a nightmare! and my MOH is being extremely difficult :/ hopefully I figure out something soon...

    How did you pick your wedding date?
    Well we both know other people - family and friends - that are getting married this year. One in June, one in July, one in August. And with my FI being in school, we definitely didn't want to go too early or too late in the year or there would be no possibility of a honeymoon. With May, we get the whole summer before he goes back to studying his butt off for law school. We first picked the 31st but my cousin's is the very next week all the way in NH! So we decided the 24th. Despite it being a holiday weekend, I think it will work out perfectly!
     
    What are your wedding colors/ theme?
    the colors are mint and lavender. No theme but keeping it pretty formal to go with the venue.
