    My fiance is actually the brother of one of my good friends! We first met at a party she had in high school when her parents were out of town (he was 21 and up from college, he and his friends bought the alcohol hahaha). We had a brief romance then, stayed in touch through here over the years, and then "re-met" when he was in town visiting her one weekend... we've been together ever since (2 years now).
    I had moved to Washington, DC for a research job and my fiance was in the same lab as me (we did have different offices though!) He was dating someone at the time and I was busy studying for the MCAT. I was only going to be in DC for 2 years, so I was not expecting/planning on meeting anyone while I was there. He was kind of flirty with me and I had told my friends back home there was one cute guy in the lab Several months went by, after he had broken up with the girl he was seeing and I was done with the test, he asked me out for ice cream after a big deadline. I thought it was going to be with our other coworkers. I went into his office expecting to leave with everybody, but the other girls were giggling as we left by ourselves! That was our first date. He directly asked me, "do you have a policy against dating co-workers?" and the rest is history.

    Congrats Nicola on booking!

    And welcome to the new brides on here!

      Yeah, ive never met anyone who has done it this way round :-) I just like to be different AND like to get what i want ;-p x

      Ooooo, Ive been to look at wedding rings today, tried 3 on... still none the wiser though!! haha, just dont know what i want... Were both off work w/c 16th May, so we'll have to go into town togeher i think to see what we both like....
      AND i have always wanted Stephen to wear a kilt to get married but he has never been keen on the idea (as he hates his legs, they are fine to me) but anyway i got used to the idea & would be happy no matter what he wore as long as he says "I DO" anyway the other night Stephen announces depending on price he may wear a kilt.... ....... we thought it would be really expensive to hire for 2 weeks but thought we'd price it up anyway, and to my shock its actually only £140 for the full 2 weeks!! So i think my babes is going to wear a kilt after all :-) Yipee!!!
      So when were off we will go look at tartans too, to find a nice one for him to wear :-)

      Im getting happier and happier by the day as these wedding our plans take off :-) Im (as im sure its the same for the rest of you) will be wishing my life away for the next year....

      Oooo, more stories, I love reading them......

      1 YEAR TODAY!!!!!!

              Fab fab news from your WC, thats brilliant takes the pressure off a little for having to book straight away when prices are out for you :-) Not long now though, about 19 days?!? ARGH!!!!

                    Aww Kerry hope you feel better soon!! Ooo rings how lovely! your have to post some pics!

                    We went shopping today and had a little peek at rings. We need to go out and look properly without Scarlett with us though as can't consentrate when she's there! We'll prob do this in June/July after booking.... and try and get a deposit down!

                      wow..it must been exciting to check out the wedding bands! I have a size 4 finger (so far I haven't found a store that has a size 4 eternity band for me to try on), so I am thinking maybe check them out in Hong Kong this October.
                      I am still 14 months away...but since I already put down a deposit to secure the date and location, I will just be patient and book when the price come out and down a bit.
                      FMIL just came back from Belgium, and FI just told her the date, and she was like..Oh I have to start to lose weight and look for my dress! I guess not only the brides are excited about dresses and weights, but FMILs too!
