I'm so glad I found you guys, this place looks like it's going to be a blast!
I'm Laura. I've been with my fiancee for almost 6 years and we've been engaged since August 2006.
We are planning a wedding for July 2008 (i will be graduating with my bachelors in December so we want to be "settled" before we marry)! It will be just the two of us marrying away and then we'll come home and have a very laid back "after wedding celebration".
As of now, some people know, others do not. We will tell anyone what are plans are if they ask, so it's not a secret but it's not an announcement!
It's pretty stress free this way!! We really don't need much for the actual ceremony away. If you don't mind, here is what is done so far::
not really necessary but my engagement ring is a pink sapphire, so i will be wearing pink accents. Other than that just bright tropical colors!
We decided on Antigua. Our goal is to talk to a Travel Agent and get things booked by the end of this summer.
A silk boquet. The flowers i loved were being discontinued so I put my order in now, the maker tells me it will keep very well until 2008!
ordered with boquet.
bought and is being made. My fiancee is in the airforce so i thought this was cute and appropriate!
The hardest part of it all! I'm so undecided (thankfully i have plenty of time). This is where i'll probably need some assistance from you gals!
As for the after wedding party, we still have all the work to do with that. I need to talk to family to see if we can have a cook out at my mom's (big house/yard) if not we'll have to find somewhere. It will be tropical/beach themed. I hope to wear my dress (if i ever decide on one) and to be able to show pictures from our wedding/honeymoon.
Thanks Girls!! Can't wait to get to know you all!
