    What style of wedding (size, type of meal, or whatever)? My vision was a very NYC wedding, classic with a modern twist which I think we will be getting. Our ceremony will be early evening, cocktail hour outdoors, sit down dinner, and huge party!!! I want it to be super fun for our guests.
    Fun fact about yourself or your relationship: FI and I met our second week into our freshman year of college. Long story short, this kid my roommates and I used to hang out with had a crush on me and introduced me to FI and 2 of his friends in an attempt to humiliate me. FI's friend was really creepy and I thought they were all creeps; but I kept bumping into FI that week around campus and by the end of the week we were an item :)

  • @staceemarie OMG I love your "planned date night" folder on your blog! Really awesome idea!
  • @cmarr684 Thank you! I found the idea on pinterest and then personalized it to me and my fiancé'. It really helps us make time for each other at least once a month. It's easy to get into just laying around watching tv! 
    cmarr684
  • @staceemarie -- I love your blog! Such a great idea with so much information on it! Also, I loved reading about your proposal!!! It sounds like it was perfect!! Congrats!! And btw...we have the same wedding day, May 23, 2015!!!!!!! YAY!
  • @lindseyfera No way! What a great date, memorial day weekend? Monday off work? Although hopefully WE will already be on our honeymoon, where are you getting married? My proposal was wonderful, my fiancé did such a great job and I didn't see it coming at all. How was yours???
    Thank you for your comments about the blog, I just added a follow button on the blog. If you could follow it and leave a comment! I'd really appreciate! it! http://futurewifelife.blogspot.com
  • @staceemarie - we are getting married north shore of Boston! Our reception is at Tewksbury Country Club--cannot wait! Haha yeah we should most definitely be headed out to the honeymoon by then!! :-)

    My proposal was perfect--I had no idea it was happening, either! It was on Christmas Eve (it sounds cliche but we are both RNs and I got stuck working both Thanksgiving and Christmas this year and I was being a grump all season about it and I think he used Christmas eve as a way to make me happier about working Christmas Day haha!) so we were headed to my parents' house for Christmas eve lunch and we stopped by his parents' house on the way and then he drove down a side road, which wasn't uncommon for him to do, and it leads to my favorite old stone bridge (think "ye olde new england") and so we got out of the car because it was an uncommonly nice day for December in Massachusetts, and then he's talking to me about our love and how much he loves me and how he wants to spend more Christmases with me and start our own family and traditions some day and he says wonderful things like this a lot to me, which is nice, so I didn't think anything was out of the ordinary, until he's suddenly down on one knee with the ring shining in my face haha! I burst into tears, it was incredible. And of course our parents knew this was what was happening and they were all at my parents' house with champagne and we all had lobster rolls for lunch. It was just so perfect.

    He had done SUCH a great job of throwing me off for so long that there was NO way I would have thought it was happening when it happened. I knew we were going to get married, it was just a matter of when.  And he definitely succeeded--all he wanted to do was completely surprise me, and he did!
  • @lindseyfera LOVE THAT STORY! How wonderful?! And surprising, even though you knew it was coming some day, you still weren't sure when... that's how I felt. :) Boston is beautiful, only been there once but loved it. Congratulations again! 

    What are your colors? Or have you decided?
