Hello Everyone at BDW!!! I'm so incredibly thrilled to be joining this forum. I am finally engaged! I've been creeping this site for a good 4-5 months already, but wanted to wait to be engaged before introducing myself.
I have been with FI (that means Fiance right?) for 6 years, and we were best friends for 5 years prior to that. We are planning on getting married in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic in January 2015 (SOOOO FAR AWAY FROM NOW). The reason for choosing such a long engagement is that we were intent on going away, but wanted to do it January/February (when the weather is ugly in Manitoba, Canada and everyone is dying to see some sun)...and January/February 2014 is just too soon. I stress easily, so I want to give myself lots of planning time, and enjoy the process.
I look so forward to talking with you all...I already feel like home at this forum after all the reading I've done here. It's already so helpful, and I imagine will be even more so as I begin to plan! Hopefully I can refrain from turning into bridezilla as I am not usually a planner/picky person, but once you start thinking of these things, it's easy to convert!
