Hey girls. Finally starting to look at venues 🙂 But I’m thinking I’m gonna have to cut my guest list down 🙁 Everywhere that we look at that is in or budget can’t fit our guest list, so we’re thinking about cutting down numbers and going with the more expensive route when it comes to venue. We will see, my mom has a friend who works in the wedding industry and is pretty popular around here apparently so she should be able to help us find the right fit. But in other news FMIL went to a concert and just LOVED the venue, she hasn’t been this excited about anything wedding related, but it is outdoors, which is so not what we were looking for. I still haven’t told her that it isn’t even in the running, we will see how that conversation goes… I’m currently avoiding it.
How is your planing coming along? You getting anything done? Any new ideas?

@alyssaC: Hey! I finally have progress that I can update about haha :). We’re looking at venues too and have narrowed it down to two. One of them I reallllly want (and it looks like we’ll end up going with it – yay!). We’ve also narrowed down the date to July 25th almost for sure since the venue we want has that date available. I’m planning on booking the venue, photographer & DJ done by the end of this school year since we still have just under 2 years yet. We’ll begin everything else this spring after I graduate and get the majority of the planning done next summer!

@WannaBeeMrsB: It’s our plan to really start stuff after I graduate in the spring too!!!!! I totally would get married right after graduation if I thought I could plan a wedding and do well my senior year, but that just sounds stressfull :/ FI’s mom found a venue she really likes but it’s outdoors and Colorado is just too hot in July for a wedding outside, maybe the ceremony becuase it’s shorter but not the whole thing. It just bugs me because she knows we don’t want to be outside for long, but o well she will get the hint when we don’t book it. I’m going to try to book a venue in December during Christmas break just so we make sure to get the date we want, but we will see if we can decide on one in short month we have. But ultimatly nothing real big will happen until next summer because of school.
