    Aloha!

           My name’s Amanda & I’m new to the DWB world! I wanted to make my first "post" to introduce myself & tell you about my wonderful engaged life, but as short as possible.

           I’m from New Jersey, I’m 26 years young & my fianc©â€™s name is Eric, he is 3 months older, but was a year older in school. We first met in high school, (on the same school bus) on 9/11/01. (What a day that was! I met the love of my life & the World Trade Center was attacked.) It took us a couple years to officially date but we did; we dated in high school & the first couple years in college. I guess you could say we took some time apart to “see the world” (we try not to talk about our time apart).

    In 2010, after many years of never running into each other, we got back in contact & started to date again. It was love at first sight all over again, the butterflies, the smiles all day long, everything. Exactly a year later, Eric proposed. If you wish to know more read our story on our wedding website: http://doughertyands...ourwedding.com/

     Although I’ve been engaged since October 16, 2011, I’m just now getting into the blogs & stuff. I figured I would try to make as many posts as I can about our destination wedding in Hawaii (hints the Aloha!) I’m in the middle of making the invitations & making welcome bags (OOT bags) so I will be sure to post pictures, links, ideas, & as much information as I can, because I know I’ve been stressed about these things! The Internet is suppose to be filled with great ideas with every thing written out with links & prices & details! Well, for me, it was hard. Pinterest, Etsy, Weddingbee, Wanelo, & TheKnot are my favorite websites that I have found the most help!

     

    Bride’s name; Amanda

    Groom’s name; Eric

    Future name; Smith (how original!)

    Wedding date: August 17, 2013

    Destination; Maui, Hawaii

    Hotel: The Westin Maui Resort & Spa

    Ceremony/Reception Location; Gannon’s Wailea, Maui, Hawaii

     

    For now, I think this post is enough. My next one I’ll try to have pictures for my save the dates.

           Suggestions? Questions? Ideas? Please feel free!

     

    Mahalo,

    The Future Mrs. Smith Kiss

                  Yayy another Hawaii bride! I feel like there are so few on this site that I almost hunt down all the Hawaii brides. Haha. I was thinking of Gannon's in Maui too! One of my bridesmaids said flights were expensive to Maui so we chose Oahu instead. Otherwise, I would have loved to get married in Maui! We are going to Maui for our honeymoon though after Oahu and will be staying at the Sheraton. We were also thinking of the Westin! And another funny thing is that our wedding dates are a week apart :) Mine is August 10, 2013. Have you done your invitations yet? I just finished mine and did a passport style invitation with a boarding pass RSVP.
