cocorosa-engaged-1I got engaged to the love of my life and my best friend, Joey! I’m sooooo happy and soooo excited! I got engaged on September 23rd and wanted to wait with the announcement until we would have picked a wedding date. Truth is … we still haven’t picked a date yet but it looks like it will be in a little over a year or year and a half (still deciding between a Winter wedding or a Spring wedding) I have already started collecting inspiration and ideas and can’t wait to go full nuts on planning and details! Since we are an overseas/ trans-atlantic couple (I’m Dutch and Joey is American) some things are a bit… well.. challenging. Opening a wedding registry is a bit harder for example since the website redirects to either a US site or an European site and we would have to do a lot of the planning apart of each other but it will be fun either way and most of all an amazing time! xoxo

    Yayyy congratulations!! You will be such a beautiful and ethereal bride – congratulations on being engaged to your loved one!! 🙂

    I got married about two weeks ago and we are also a transatlantic couple… My families are in Indonesia and his in UK and we are currently living in Australia. The most important thing is to get a registry in one country or get people to get you gift cards from specific shops.

    And also if you are getting married in a third country (where both parents aren’t living in) make sure you realise that they will not be able to help you at all. I was very stressed when both sides of the families arrived in Australia and I had to take them around while still doing wedding errands! And they will probably be quite useless on the day too ahahahah so please be prepared for some of those stress. The key is having friends who are willing to help with your families 🙂

    I won’t go on and on about this but if you want to know more let me know!! Email me!

    Wonderful news! Enjoy every moment of it, it is such an amazing period with all the excitement and preparations. I’ve gone through it recently, just celebrated our 1st month “anniversary” of our wedding, and I loved every step of the road leading to the altar.
    Wishing you all the best 🙂
