Jeff and I met at a Skate Center 7 years ago. When I first seen him I knew he was the one. He looked over at me and smiled. I got nervous, and was wondering if he would make a move. He had his friend come talk to me, he said "so my friend has a thing for you" and it took off from there. I told Jeff, will you dance with me(because we are that skilled at skating) and would you believe we were so nervous around one another that our hands stared to sweat. Ahh sometimes we still do it, and will both laugh about it and how cute it was.. young love..Now we are much older and the love never left its as though its so strong when we go to work for 8 hours we cant stand to go the next day without one another. Jeff is the most romantic guy he just proposed in 2010 with a huge diamond 1 ct. He still leaves me little letters around the house and has never forgot a special day. We cant wait to get married our finances are tight but no matter what he promised to give me my dream wedding so me and my mother have been looking at churches for the past month and getting ready for May 2011! Oh and did I mention by the grace of God, the dress in the davids bridal magazine I liked and cost about 500 bucks.. I got it on craigslist for $90 and would you believe it was in my size no alteration. How meant to be was that. I am now 21 and he is 27, I love him and he loves me and we are ready to do this forever!

Hi, my name is Jessica and I am 19 years old. My fiances name is Justin and he's 21. I'm from Chicago and he's from a small town in Southern Illinois, Eldorado. We met each other last year while attending our freshman year at Southern Illinois University. Once we both laid eyes on each other we knew that we had found the one. We have been unseperable since the day that we met. Yes, we may be young and most people think that we may not be ready, but when you know that this is the person that you want to be with for the rest of your life, you know. Justin makes me smile more than anything else in this world. He is in the army, and has another 4 years or so. =[ He is being shipped to Afghanistan Janurary 2013. Hopefully not any sooner. Honestly I don't know what I am going to do without him. He hasn't even left yet and I fear that he won't make it home but I know that I have to keep positive. I would really love to be able to create a wonderful memory for the both of us by winning the wedding of our dreams. We don't have much, but we try to make the best of what we've got. Especially since I have him by my side, I know that everything will be okay. I hope to be able to make our dreams come true with winning a wedding of our dreams. I don't know what is going to happen when my fiance gets shipped to Afghanistan. We can not afford a wedding of our own and I really want to have something special for us before he leaves.

My fiance, Stephen, and I started dating not long after high school graduation. Six months later I broke it off with him, he was devastated. He kept calling trying to get back with me but I was young and wanted to experience the world. I changed my phone number. I spent the next five years in a terrible abuseful relationship with a man I had a child with. After finally managing to end it and get away from that man, I had become devastated, empty and broken. Month after month I went to bed at night wondering if there was anyone out there for me.

Late Spring 2009, somehow Stephen got my phone number and contacted me. Of course he unveiled his unrelenting love for me, but I felt so undeserving. I tried to blow him off. He kept calling anyway. One night after getting off work at 11pm I went home, layed on the couch feeling so torn and empty. I decided to pray to God to restore my life and bring a good man into my daughter and my life that would love us and care for us the way God wanted. When I woke up the next morning (on Labor Day), I could not get Stephen out of my head. All I could think about was marrying him. I had to call him. He was talking to two girls at the time but immediately dropped them to be with me.

Stephen and I have been together for more than a year now and all we can talk about is marrying each other. He is the most incredible father I could have ever asked for, he taught me how to live, love and trust. He helped put my heart back together. He is the most amazing man in the entire universe an I am the luckiest woman in the world. Stephen is graduating from paramedic school in over a year and I am graduating with a bachelors degree in nursing this May! We both want nothing more than to marry each other and would love the opportunity to get married
as soon as possible. Thank you for letting me share.

My name is Stephanie and my wonderful fiance's name is Paul. We have been together for almost 10 years and engaged for 3. Initially, we decided that we wanted to buy a house before we got married. With home repairs and mortgage payments, our wedding was put on the back burner. It has only been in the recent months that we've felt the need to get married as soon as possible. Unfortunately, my grandpas health has rapidly been deteriorating and it has become an all to possible reality that he might not make it to see me walk down the aisle. My heart breaks at the thought of me not to be able to have a dance with him. I've always had the grandest dreams for my wedding. A warm, sunny day at a beautiful chapel. I want a photo booth set up in lieu of the traditional guestbook for people to sign and put their smiling faces next to. Chair covers and charger plates and a candy bar for all of my guests to get a sugar high from. I would have fabric draped from the ceiling to floor like you see in tropical resorts. I would light candles everywhere to illuminate my sky high centerpieces. Most importantly, I would walk down the aisle to Joshua Radin singing "today"(the Ellen version) on acoustic guitar. When I picture my wedding playing out in my head, it's to that song that I hear. While this may be my dream wedding, I would give it all up just to be able to have my grandpa there for all of it!

I've been quite Blessed to fall in Love with my Best friend Eric McGowan. We've been together for 6 years, 2 months and 3 weeks today :-)! We're both United States Air Force Active duty Military members. I've been in the military for 20 years and he has been in for 26 years. I'm currently stationed in Germany and he's stationed in Alaska. During our relationship we've been separated for over 5 years due to military commitments. As we both serve our country proudly and although we're separated, the Love that we have for one another, is truly unmatched! The miles separate us; however, our hearts beat as one. It's amazing he laughter and joy that we share! I still get butterflies in my tummy just by the sound of his voice and if it happens after 6 years, I can only imagine what it will be like in 20 years! My parents were both diagnosed with Cancer last year and it was a very rough time. However, God has healed their bodies of the Cancer and they're currently CANCER FREE! I know that my parents and his mother have waited for the day to come to see us walk down the aisle and become ONE. I do hope that we're Blessed to be the winners of our Dream Wedding!! I believe that EVERY woman should be able to feel this way prior to leaving this earth!

My name is Brooke Wood and my fiances name is Keith Herrin. We have been together for almost 2 wonderful years and just had a beautiful daughter named Ava Lynn. We really wanted to get married before she came but we didnt have enough money to because i had some complications in pregnancy. We love to be together and pray and hope that we will be together forever. In every relationship there are disagreements and struggles but we always find a way to work them out and get through them. Keith is a wonderful man, hes loving, fun, has a wonderful smile that will blow your heart away if you ever see it, and he is a awesome father to our daughter. We would love to win this dream wedding because i want a opportunity of a life time. I would love to have a small wedding, but i want it to be beautiful, a wedding to remember. I would love if our family and friends left and actually had an awesome time. I would love to have lots of fall colors like, green, brown, red, and yellow. I want a beautiful church ceremony and then a big party dance hall with lots of music and dancing, yummy food, and lots of friends and family that we love and that will support us. I would love to win a wedding like this because i know i will never be able to pull a wedding like this off on my own.

Hello, my name is Dej'e Ross and my fiance is Louis Wallace. I am 22 years old and he is 28. Currently we have 2 boys and we are expecting a baby girl January 7,2011. Louis and I hvae been together for about 3 1/2 years, Louis is funny, compassionate, so supportive and just the best man I have ever met. We have been planning to get married for a very long time but with him being a struggling musician and me in customer service a wedding just seems so far away. My wedding I would have to say would be Bethenny's (from real housewives) ceremony, and Naomi and George (wetv, black eyed peas guitarist)reception. I fell in love when the doors opened and all eyes were on Bethenny but I would love the roses to fill the walking isle as I walk in. The wedding ceremony was all eyes on the couple and I just was so in love with the ceremony. Now anyone who saw the Naomi and George reception would know exactly why every woman in the world would be in love. From the decor, the mood of the room, the food, her dress, her hair, the earrings. I was in love. Love. I wish, wish I could could marry Lou in that setting. Definitely I believe I should win, and i know that all women really would love the chance to win, but I really want it. Believe me if I had it I would want the exact same things. I am so in love and I truly want that to show in my wedding, I have so much family I want to share this moment with and with just half of whats being offered I would make it work. Please consider us, truly this is a wedding that will last we are so in love both our families are ready for us to marry, its just I don't want ot settle for a drive-thru wedding.
