    Ok, I guess its my turn. . .I’ve been waiting for what seems like forever to do this but it has gone by so so fast. First, I would like to thank Tammy for starting this amazing forum, without it I would be lost!! Second, I would like to thank everyone who has helped me along the way. Especially the girls on the Royal PDC thread. I wish you all the best on your weddings. I definitely will miss talking to you all everyday! Sorry if I don’t mention specific names but thank you thank you thank you!!!!

    We will be getting married at the beautiful Royal Playa del Carmen in the gazebo and then our reception on the beach. OMG I can’t wait!!

    Engagement
    My FI proposed on a beautiful summer day in July 2009. He had an entire day planned for me including a vineyard tour, breakfast in bed, flowers. After all his hard work, he didn’t get it done the way he wanted, but we made it home and he proposed in the same park we go to almost everyday to walk our dogs. It was so special because it was it was our place and with our puppies. He couldn’t have planned it better!!


    My E-ring and wedding band, custom made by him. . .he's awesome!!

                  Yup, one more. I had to post this cuz my FI just gave this to me as one of my wedding gifts. It is a engraved wine box that HE MADE!! It is absolutey gorgeous! He is so romantic. we will use to put a bottle of wine with letters to eachother about why we love eachother and why we are together. We will open the box and wine at our one year anniversary and read the letters. What a great idea!!! I found it somewhere on here but can't find it now cuz Im tired!!!
