There are just tooooo many posts I missed. Just spent over an hour and a half trying to catch up and I only got through 75 pages. Too much, too much.
So from the bit I did read, I will definitely add myself to the & fiance club. If I hear one more (if we weren't saving for this stupid wedding, we could be well on our way to buying a house comment, I might have a bridezilla moment).

We are actually having our legal ceremony this year (a year ahead of our wedding in Mexico- we will be having our symbolic ceremony on our actual one year anniversary!). So that will be on the 18th of September this year! Exciting moment for us We go in for our consultation on the 16th, and then get married at 3:00 on the 18th at city hall! Just our parents, my grandmother and his brother and girlfriend will be there. We are going out for dinner afterwards, but that's it.
We were going to try to get away to NYC or the Bahama's for a mini- honeymoon, but we decided last night to get a puppy instead! (funny, because we just had a pregnancy scare, so I said that because we aren't having a baby, we are now getting a puppy instead- he said practice makes perfect- so we have successfully raised a cat for the past 7 years, now we will have a puppy, and then he said the next step will babysitting a kid for 3 weeks haha- which will be a challenge for him, but for me it will be totally fine!).
Anyways, so that is our next big steps- legal wedding and a puppy!
I have already asked two girlfriends to be my bridesmaids, but informally. So my next big wedding thing is to ask them officially, in a cute way, and actually upgrade one of them to matron of honour. (Since my BFF can't make my wedding because she is a teacher, and she already accepted the MOH title, which she can have for our AHR in October 2014).
Deposits were due on the 20th of September, so we have 15 people confirmed, with another 5 who will be finding their own way out to Mexico. I couldn't be any happier with the tiny number of people coming. It will be intimate, small and beautiful- exactly how I want it to be! And then we get to party with everyone when we get back, so I will still get all of that love and excitement as well!
