    Hi and CONGRATS to all the new brides-2-B and newlyweds out there!

    I'm not only a newbie to this site, I’m also a newbie to the whole forum and blogging phenomenon, so sorry for any faux pas! This is very reminiscent of the first day of class, but at least we don't have to share what we did all summer.

    We got engaged a few months ago on the beach. We live in New Mexico but got engaged in Delaware. Long story...includes me throwing the ring into the ocean accidentally. If you ever want a good laugh, let me know and I will tell you the story.

    As requested, here is the 411 on us.
    My name is Tram Nguyen and my man is Tyson Gonzales, which makes me the future Mrs. Tram Gonzales – I can see the perplexed looks now!

    We were planning to have a destination wedding on a cruise in the Bahamas but my father’s illness has advanced rapidly. He now requires kidney dialysis three times a week and just last month underwent quadruple open heart surgery. It has been hard on everyone but we are trying to stay positive. Of course this has put everything in perspective, but does make planning a destination wedding much harder. We had already made all the arrangements for the cruise, so it’s a little discouraging to have to start from square one. As of now we do not have a date or location. The most important thing to us is finding a location, most likely Florida, that offers beach weddings and has a dialysis center near by and choosing a date that will ensure he will be there for.

    I am not sure if there are any forum threads that discuss special needs such as ours, but would appreciate any advice or suggestions you could give. Congrats again and looking forward to hearing more about your special day!

        Welcome and congrats, Tram!

        I hope and pray your father gets well soon. My Dad has had a number of heart surgeries, so I know what that's like.

        If we can assist you in any way, just say the word.

          There is actually a place to post engagement stories. You should go post, sounds like a funny story.

            Sorry to hear about your dad. I work with heart surgery patients. You sound like you have a strong bond with your dad. Fl seems like a good alternative to leaving the country. Its important to have the people you care about most with you.

                We'd love to hear the engagement story. There is a sub-forum where you can post.

                I'm so sorry to hear about your dad. It must be very hard for him to be ill and try to plan a wedding- they are both emotionally trying times.

                Best of luck to you and your family. We'll be here to help anyway we can.
