    I want to start my thread by saying thank you to all the lovely ladies who make this forum a success and especially to Tammy for starting this all! This is such a great idea and you have helped so many brides!

    I have met so many wonderful people on here who I never would have met otherwise. ☺ I want to say a special thank you to my Feb brides and my SB ladies who have helped me so much in these last few months – you ladies hold a special place in my heart! Without the support of you all I don’t think I would have made it through this whole process without freaking out! ☺ We will be getting married July 10, 2010 at Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa in the Mayan Riviera.

    My engagement story: My FI came to Korea four months after I moved there to teach English. He proposed on the first night he was there. I was so shocked since he had purposely thrown me off the idea of getting engaged since he wanted it to be a surprise. My reaction was "Are you serious?" and he still teases me about that to this day! LOL! :)

    Here are some of the details:
    My invitations were DIY (bought the boxes of them at Staples and Michaels) and I printed/decorated them myself:

    My veil (don’t have a picture) but it was a DIY, cathedral length, off white veil – you’ll see the veil in my pics when I return ☺

    My shoes and purse from The Shoe Company

    DIY outfits that I made using iron-on transfers purchased from etsy (seller peaceloverhinestones)

        Our rings: My engagement ring was designed by my FI and made by his dad (who is a jewellery maker), and my wedding band was custom made by his dad to fit my e-ring. FI’s ring was purchased and a few changes were made by his dad to suit FI’s tastes.

        My photographer is coming from “home” with us. She is actually from Louisiana so we have never met. It’s a long story, but our original photographer from Louisiana was recommended by a good friend of ours who we met in South Korea. She got pregnant and her due date is 3 weeks before our wedding, so she found another substitute to go in her place. It actually worked out perfectly because I love the new photographers style and I’m super excited to meet her and work with her! Her site is Click the image to open in full size.

        This is my centerpiece inspiration I will use for our AHR. I will use hot pink roses and use our wedding colour ribbons to decorate the square vases. Then there will be votives around them.

        Well that’s it for now! We leave on Monday and I look forward to posting pics and writing my review when we return! ☺
