    Hello everyone! I'm so happy to be here! I'm looking forward to getting advice from you all... there is a ton of info on this forum. First off, I am not engaged at the moment, but my live-in boyfriend and I were just discussing our future wedding and I convinced him of a DW rather than a traditional one, (he's very happy about that too because he hates big formal affairs). I know the official engagement will happen within the next couple months so now I'm just trying to do some preliminary research.

    Hi Danielle! I'm in the exact same boat as you are! My boyfriend and I aren't engaged, however we have decided to do a destination wedding when the time comes. I really love the idea of being prepared when I get engaged. That way, I won't spend so much time stressing about wedding stuff, but I'll have a plan. I think I will better enjoy my engagement this way!
    Where are you thinking of getting married? Do you have any requirements, such as adults only, all inclusive, beach, large or small resort?

      Welcome to you Danielle. The ladies and Jason and the other guys are a wealth of knowledge, so take advantage of them. You certainly are not alone, being w/out official engagement. I don't think it is ever too early to begin planning out all of the special things you want for your wedding. This forum is where you will find all of the information and guidance you will need. If we don't have an answer for your questions, someone will help you find it.
      Best wishes, and enjoy the forum!
      For the dance, at the reception, Maggie wore her crinoline and a lovely lace top. Looks like Tadd likes it!

                    Welcome, I was on the forum before I was actually engaged as well. It is great to get a heads up and learn about the many possibilities for a DW. Let us know if we can be of any help.
