    Thank you all so much for all of the information that you have shared on the forum. I have read and read and read. This has been the absolute best resource that I have had. I also appreciate the girls who supported me when I lost my grandmother last week. That was do difficult and they were just so kind.

    I am very excited for our wedding. We have put so much thought into everything that we are doing. I hope our guests love everything and have a wonderful time with us.

    Engagement
    We were engaged 5/17/08 at Belle Mer in Newport, RI. He picked this day because it was exactly one year from when he “knew” he loved me. The previous year I had my wisdom teeth out and I went to NH to stay with my mom. Benny had gone to NYC because it was the last weekend before his parents went back to DR. He was so worried about me that he got on Amtrak from NY to Boston and then took a bus from Boston to NH to be with me.

          Friend that I am indebted to-I owe this girl everything…She introduced Benny and I. When he was ready to propose he went to her because she worked at a very unique jewelry shop and she introduced him to the jeweler who made my ring. She is now a make-up artist and is doing my make-up on our wedding day….I owe her the world!!!
