Hello! I used to have an account, but somehow, somewhere, Crafster gobbled it up. Oh well! Let's start anew.
I am Joanna, but go by Cupcake and have been for quite some time now. I am engaged to be married to another woman (*gasp* the HORROR lol) named Ashley, or Ash for short. She's my rock, my savior, the other part of my heart that makes it complete.
***piece of advice***
Please do not come into this thread spewing forth hatred towards same-sex couples. If you don't agree with my lifestyle, move on. Thank you!!!
That being said...
We've set our wedding date for 09.25.10 and are going to try and stick to our very strict $5,000 budget. Originally we wanted to host it in a backyard, but have not been able to find one big enough. Now we're looking at community centers and are very hopeful!
I totally forgot to mention a key part... we're planning this wedding to happen back in New Jersey, but are currently in Jacksonville, FL.
I would like to have as much of the wedding be DIY and crafty as possible. I originally wanted to make my dress, but knowing the incredible amount of stress that brings, decided against it.
Please follow along as I come in here to show off projects, rant and gush about planning a wedding!! Eep!!
