I am! Sorry I missed it the first time…I’m getting married in Auburn.  I’m having sunflowers and the colors are navy, orange and yellow (not surprising lol).

We aren’t really worrying about traditions to be honest, but I am getting some coozies. I feel like that’s pretty southern.  πŸ™‚

I got my one and only speeding ticket in Cullman!

What about yours?  

Here’s some venue pictures:

@MsBryt:  Thank you!

I didn’t realize the groom’s cake was southern!  Chocolate cake is pretty important…I’m not really sure what traditions are in other areas.

I love cowboy boots but I don’t think they belong at my wedding either.

I love your colors! And your venue is gorgeous!

Where are you in planning?  I’ve got the venue, food, alcohol, photographer, cake, save the dates were ordered, wedding party is picked, dresses and tuxes are picked but not rented yet, invitations are picked but not ordered, got the dress and honeymoon is booked.

@MsBryt: Sounds like we are both on top of things!

I was going to ask you about the STDs and when you were mailing them.  I was thinking end of September because I don’t want them to be too early but people also go on vacation a lot during that time.

Hawaii sounds great! πŸ™‚

I got a DJ from South Carolina for $750 for a few hours.  He also plays the guitar and piano.  Ours is right behind a hotel and I wanted that instead of a band so he could keep playing after “quiet time.”

You’re doing a good bit of DIY!  I’m not really doing any…:/ I’m neither crafty nor creative lol.  

Our guestbook and pen came today! πŸ™‚

Next on my list is ordering the invitations and getting my grandmother’s dress ordered.  I have to dress my family lol.  I need to figure out ceremony music and readings and vows and all that but I’m putting that off for a little while.

Oh thank god! Other Alabama brides! I was starting to think I was the only one on here! Hey there girls! I hope your wedding planning is going fabulously. I just nailed down a venue and a date this past weekend, and I’m off to try on dresses next weekend in my area.

@spoiledvamp27:  Hi! Where in Alabama are you getting married? The venue is an exciting part!

 

@MsBryt: We’re doing the book and the picture! I hope it’s not too much but I didn’t figure the old folks would understand the picture and then the younger crowd can write notes.

I am excited about the DJ πŸ™‚

That’s awesome that you’re artistic! How I wish I was…

Free honeymoon = awesome!!! We’re going to Couples in Jamaica.

Oh wow. I just realized I hadn’t changed my date on here yet. We actually moved the date up about 6 months, so now I’m planning for October 20th, 2012. A little closer to your dates. I have also picked out my attendants. We’ve been engaged for a little over 4 months. I’ve also gathered brooches for my “real touch roses and brooch hybrid” bouquet. I’m getting married in the Florence/Killen area. I think technically the venue is in Killen. Its on the river. I have some pictures here somewhere…

Oh and my hair is being done by FI’s uncle, who did my hair for a wedding photoshoot for a local magazine a few years ago before FI and I dated. And our colors are going to be Black, White (or ivory), and Red. FI is having his groom’s cake done by his aunt, who is a baker, but he doesn’t like chocolate so its probably going to be boring white cake and I’ll get the fun stuff in my bridal cake. Or pie. Or cupcakes. Thats the current topic of deabte. Also, we’re probably having a friend of ours officiate the wedding. She already did the online ordaining thing “just in case.” lol.

@MsBryt: Thank you πŸ™‚ Its a family friend’s house. We were originally looking at a victorian house in Tuscumbia for the wedding, but this venue was free and cut down drastically on retals since a lot was already available in the structure of the venue. Dance floor area with pre-hung wedding lights and surrounding uplighting? Check. Stage-like area for the band with electricity already running to it? Check. Etc. And its so pretty that my decorations are also going to be cut down considerably from my original thougts.
