    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!

    Welcome and congrats!!! Since you've already been a fan of/follower of the site we don't have to tell you how awesome it is. :) And you already have the lingo down as FI definitely is fiance! And don't worry about the long engagement-- time will fly. Plus, more time to make fun DIY stuff which you will find yourself wanting to do the more time you spend here! Happy planning and keep us posted on your plans!

        Welcome and congrats on your engagement!! I think that more time rather than less is a smart plan and I'm sure you'll be happy you decided to do that. :)
