    Congrats! I've almost been dating my bf for that long, so it's great to see a long-time couple get ready to tie the knot!

    Thank you everyone! It felt like it took forever. We have been together since high school, so we had to get through high school, college, and get our jobs secured and I did not get my contract until this past December. I was a LTS for three years.
    I also really needed this after my church's fire last week. This was such a pick-me-up!
    I am walking on cloud 9:)

    And guess what comes after the epidemic of weddings...and epidemic of pregnancies. That happened at our school, over about 3 years we had sooooo many teachers pregnant!

    I am still choosing a location at this point, but I have a meeting with the photographer and the DJ on Friday. Our colors will be lavender and yellow (of course, my favorite color in the world!) I will be using the twin heat silver image on most things. My feionce (it's so cool to call him that:)) already made the program designs (he is a graphic artist.) On the front it had a bride and groom holding hands (you cannot see their faces) and they are standing at the start of a long pathway. On the back is the silhouette of a bride and groom kissing. We have also made a piliminary guest list. That is as far as I have gotten at this point. I plan on booking all vendors this summer and dealing with the clothing next summer.

    After you upload them into your computer, you can upload them into flicker or photobucket and post them that way. :D

    I just bought Stephi Smith's ebook "Fire your Wedding Planner" and I highly recommend it! It comes with some really neat organizational tools like the "Guestimator." I also think it would make a perfect gift if anyone is going to an engagement party :)
