    I've said it before, but I'll certainly say it again, Massive congratulations hun! :happydance:

    We're thinking either 2012, or 2013. We both want a winter wedding, & after today we are going to start looking for our dream venue. I think I have found mine, but we want to see it in person before we make any decisions. I change my mind like the weather changes, so I think we will wait a while yet before deciding.

    Thinking a Christmassy time wedding, with a red and white theme, and hopefully some snow :cloud9:

    I'm so excited. I want to decide on bridesmaids, look for a dress, look for bridesmaid dresses, do I want pageboys? Where do I want my reception? What kind of reception do I want? Honeymoon! :happydance::cloud9: xx

    I've finally found a thread thats perfect for me!! :D As you saw from the other thread, I got engaged yesterday too, and only now is it starting to sink in, it was just so overwhealming!!

    Were only going to have a small wedding, from family, and only a couple of very close friends each, and we may not even have friends back to the reception part. We really want the day to be about us and family, and not a huge party for hundereds of other people at our expense.... However we are probably in the minority with our wedding plans, and the more we talk about it, and the more people we tell were engaged the less likely a small family affair seems likely, as we don't want to offend too many people in the process.... :wacko:

    We have already decided we want to get married this summer, hopefully in June, when hopefully it wont be raining.....

    What about to Panda_Ally? :D

    :happydance: congrats both of you...

    I would love a small wedding but then a big reception for everyone!!! My OH wants to get married aboard then have a reception when we get back... I'm not crazy about the idea but I'm coming round to it, been looking today I would love to get married in cambodia (I spent a year there when i was 18 and fell i love with the place) But its hard cos of visas, translation and documents etc... And not to mention expensive so everyone i want to be there prob couldn't be... maybe go for honeymoon tho!!!!

    Theres me waffling lol!!!! I just want to find the perfect place!!!

    Me & OH have been talking all day, while we have been walking/driving round, & we have decided on December 2012 for our wedding :happydance:

    Neither of us particularly want a church wedding, so looking for somewhere really nice - traditional looking, nothing modern, with plenty of character. Hopefully with fields and countryside around as well :thumbup: Somewhere like a big stately house would be brilliant.
    Definately would like a Red and White theme, nice and seasonal.

    Willow will be 2.5yrs by then (That's scary!) so she will be our flower girl :cloud9: And my best friend and OH's little sister will be bridesmaids :flower:

    Hopefully, the reception can be at the same place as the wedding itself, if not, we have the perfect place in mind already. We drove past today, and both thought it was ideal. We are hopefully going to pop in & have a look sometime in the early New Year.

    I'm so bloody excited!! xx

    WOW you work quick!!!! We dont even know what country to get married in yet!! LOL!! I would like somewhere a bit unusual not a stately home or church cos thats just not 'us'. A nice country pub would suit us to a tee but I'm going to give proper thought into this abroad thing first....

    I found a gorgeous (and Cheap) dress on the first site i looked at, i have been looking again today with MIL but cant find anything i like more so... that might be 'the one'. I'll go in to a shop to try on a similar one first tho before i order one online!! x

    Six months today!! :happydance:
    I can't wait to start planning, which should hopefully not be too stressful, as there should only be about 20 guests, and the reception is going to be at my parents house. So can focus most of my attention on finding the PERFECT dress!! :happydance:
