Me again. No, we haven't picked the ring yet . That isn't until March. In the meantime, we've been going over a few other details, the wedding being one of them. After sitting down, figuring out, budgeting, going over the guest list (which blew the budget), we thought about doing something different/special. We're thinking about having the wedding in the Bahamas, to keep it small and intimate, surrounded by the people who are closest and dearest to us. We've seen pictures of beach weddings, and we really like the idea. The reception will follow maybe a month or so later, and then we'd invite all the others who want to wish us well ... The problem is the dates. We're thinking about doing this in October/November of this year, but I think that's hurricane season down there. I'm not sure, though. I was hoping that you guys could let me know, or point me in the direction to find out. I would think that a travel agent may know, but who needs them when I have you guys . Thanx a bunch ...
