- Wedding: June 2015
Hi June brides! I recently got engaged this August and we decided on June 20th, 2015 for our wedding date 🙂 We were orginally thinking June 27th (my parent’s wedding anniversary) but after much deliberation about whether or not that’s weird or special.. we decided to choose a different day that was still close. That way we can have it be “our day”.
I’m an interior designer by trade so I’m pretty good about budgets and timelines, so the fact that my FI gave me almost 2 years to plan is probably going to drive me crazy… and my vendors crazy. I have tentatively picked (nothing actually booked) a venue, photographer, caterer(comes with venue), lighting and sound vendor, florist (my friend), bridesmaids, bridesmaid dresses, and table centerpieces. Most of my vendors say that you can’t book unitl 18 months to a year out, so I’ve just been asking all of them for tentative pricing so I can get a realistic budget together.
We are going for an outdoor ceremony and reception with decor from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (my FI grew up there) and colors based on watercolor paints (light purple, muted purple, grey, teal, and turquoise).
