- Wedding: October 2014
So today the FI & I had the day off to get alot of things done. Everyone is saying its crazy to have the amount of ppl for the budget we set but honestly things are coming together great. First we went to check a few venues on our list but then my father told me of a spot that his friend owns and will gift it to us to use. So our venue for the ceremony and reception is 100% free that includes the space (outdoor), lighting, dancefloor, tents, and setting up. It’s an open space with a waterview backdrop. We origanally wanted more so a garden wedding since living on an island the beachthing is done so much but the space is a blank area to do whatever we want set up however we want. We also went to look at wedding bands he put a down payment on mine and the store will bring down some rings for him to look at tomorrow. We then went to lunch at the resturant he works to and one of his bosses is doing our dessert bar so I got her card and she also does basic catering so we might use her for both (it wont be free but it will be a good deal) our DJ will be 450 for about 6-8 hrs. Lastly we booked our first set of engagement pictures (yes you read right first set.. 1 on location and 1 in studio). Things are coming together and we can finally say that our date is October 18th 2014 (exactly a year from the day he proposed). I’m getting excited now that things are taking shape!!
