Did you meet your fiance online?

Recommended Posts

I used to be a wedding planner and it was surprising to me how many people actually meet online. It seems to be pretty common these days. 

 

I however meet my fiance an a blind date that my parents and their friend (My fiance cousin) set us up on. It took months of convincing us to meet each other but once we did the rest was history.

 

I guess mothers do know best!

I met my fiancée online as well. I initially wasn't online to meet anyone. It had been a while since I was in a relationship and I thought it would be a good way to get my feet wet before I started looking for a serious partner. My fiancée was the first and only guy I went on a date with from the website and the rest is history! There were a few people in his family that bugged him about it at first, but it doesn't bother him to tell people that's how we met anymore.

I am so glad I found this thread, I met my sweetie on POF, and I am so glad that I  did. Meeting him has been one of the best things that has ever happened in my life.

Yes although a lot of my family and friends still don't know! Shhh lol. I don't think I'll ever tell my family! Idk why. Lol. He says he'll prob never tell his parents either. Both of our parents are very traditional and old school, I think it'd just open a can of worms. Anyway we met on yahoo chat back in 2002. Totally wasn't looking to meet anyone, we were both just bored one day and started talking and private messaging each other and then progressed to phone calls and since he was in NY and I was in MA he travelled to see me a lot since I was still living at home and my parents were strict about letting me go anywhere (I was 17 at the time). I owe our relationship a lot to him! For the first few years until I moved on campus he would make the trips to MA to see me. Definitely a lucky girl to find such a dedicated man :)

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
