He's not married yet I don't think.

Right after exams.

He got married on the same beach as me right around Hurricane Isaac time, around Labor Day weekend if I remember correctly.

Hmmm...I guess you're right, I need to specify. If you are getting married in Arkansas, perhaps hunting boots are of occasion.




Since Arkansas is the only place people hunt.

AYSM? You expect gifts to last a lifetime? An umbrella? cufflinks? etc I'm sure they will make sure to take that along the next 60 years.

Got married early September.

Had to finish school, so we opted for December.

Gotcha, hey we aren't taking ours until March so it's cool.



Kinda nice to wait isn't it, gives you something else to look forward to after all the wedding stuff is over with and you go back to "real life"

I seriously prayed for you guys with all the hurricane stuff going on. I felt so bad for your poor bride thinking she must have been freaking out. So glad it turned out beautiful

It is, it's also the best time to go since they are done with hurricane season. We researched that stuff for the honeymoon, not the wedding.

We were sweating it out for a while leading up to the wedding. Got to spend a week down in Destin, will never forget that week.

We considered that since it'll be winter when we go and she doesn't want to go ski. She'd rather relax and not feel like we have to constantly do something or see something.

It would be cool to look forward to it but also suck since you have to go to work within the next day or two instead of enjoying eachother.

Well ours was a beach DW(destination wedding) so we didn't go back home until the tuesday after the wedding so we still had some time on the beach to relax and enjoy each other.


We are going to Costa Rica in March and we both actually wanted a trip where we didn't just sit on a beach the whole time. We shall see if I regret that decision or not



Congrats btw, I hope everything goes smoothly for the wedding. Be prepared that something will not go exactly as planned. I'm assuming that for a wedding of that size yall have some wedding planners that can help smooth out any "hiccups" on that day

We both like the stay busy trips just not right after. If we waited we would have done something else.

No wedding planners really.

But it will be fine. Her and her co-workers are in the business.

Until you forget about it and try to go through security at the airport. Happened to my dad(he is old school as well and carries a pocket knife everyday)

Ahh, gotcha, well then hopefully she was able to get some discounts with vendors.



Be prepared for a mini bridal meltdown the week of the wedding. I nearly had a crying meltdown in Sams cause I didn't know how much alcohol to buy for our reception. Freaked out on him and just started adding more and more bottles of stuff to our buggy
