How long have you’re been dreaming of your wedding day and what was/is your Dream Wedding? Since age 14, I dream of an outside wedding! Night, candles, lots of people, fresh flowers every where! All my friends and family. I look beautiful and I’m getting marred to a prince. It’s a dream come true!
Approx. Wedding Budget? $25,000

Whose in Charge of Budget? Chris, But whatever I want I get.
What happens if you go over budget? Chris will be upset but he’ll get over it!

# of Guests attending the wedding? 100 people
What’s the story of how you got engaged? We were watching a movie in bed and when the DVD paused he said I probably sat on the remote so I started looking for it under the covers and he had put the ring under the sheets! I found it, and he asked me if I would be his wife. I said yes but I wanted a bigger diamond! So the next week it was 2½ K.
What do you love the most about your husband-to-be? He is HOT! I love the way he spoils me and treats me like a princess! He is so funny, sweet, and the guy next door!
What does he love about you? He likes my boobs! He loves that I’m a great mother, have a great smile, and he thinks I’m the most beautiful girl in the world. And the way I make Mac & Cheese!
What’s your biggest pet peeve about your husband to be? His walk! And this one pair of black shoes he wears ALL the time! I want to burn them!!!!
When you disagree, what is it usually about, and how do you handle it? Little stupid stuff! I bitch until it’s over.
What disagreements have come up about the wedding? We really don’t have that many disagreements because he would rather just give me what I want to shut me up other than fight about it.
In what ways have you shown Bridezilla behavior during the wedding planning? I would say I’m a dictator! I order everyone around and make sure they get shit done on time and how I want it! Also I'm very controlling!!!
When things aren’t going your way in regards to the details of how you want your wedding, how do you handle it? I try really hard to fix it and the more it doesn’t go my way the more steam blows out of my ears and I scream! Sometimes I hit people.
