Hi Bees fellow juniees,
1. So it just hit me that our date is the weekened before July 4, did I pick a horrible time? My family dosent do much or anything that day but to some I know its a big deal. Do you think that this is gonna be a problem for my/our wedding?
2. Have you gotten your invites yet? When are you sending them out? Am I on the late train?
3. What have yoy guys gotten done? I feel ive done nothing other thank book a venue and church. =[

@Elizabeth_A: I purposely picked out date because it is the Saturday before the 4th of July weekend…but our wedding is Saturday evening and in a summer vacation destination where many of our family and friends live year round anyways…so it definitly worked for our particular situation. I wouldn’t worry about it though! The 4th is on Thursday, so people might be making holiday plans for the following weekend not our wedding weekend! I think you’ll be okay =)

@Elizabeth_A: I don’t think it’s a big deal. People can extend their vacation and travel before the 4th. I did wonder a bit whether I paid slightly more for the honemoon because it was over the 4th. But then again, they don’t celebrate Independence Day in Cancun. 🙂

@Elizabeth_A: I did not even think about this. We picked this day because it is the hubby’s birthday… just breathe and make a list of things you need. I have an excel spreadsheet for money spent, things still needed, and what else I stil need to do. it helps me a lot! I’m not planning on sending out my invites until about 1.5-2 months before the date. 🙂

my wedding is june 30th, on sunday. we kind of picked that date so we could keep the guest count down. plus fiance’s birthday is july 6th and one of our friends is getting married that day anyway… woulda been awkward! most of my family lives in the area, and his family is coming from maine (across the country) or ireland… so basically the wedding will be all my family.
anyway, i still have to figure out the cake, and food (DIY situation…) and other little things.
you got this!

I’m a June 29th Bride with the name Elizabeth also! Crazy!
We have practically nothing done….and i can’t figure out what needs to be done. I’m such a bad bride.
We have my dress, the officiant, the location and seating rented….and we decided on picnic style food. Oh! And i mailed the invites last Monday. Still waiting on some addresses to mail the final batch. And we just chose our photographer today!
Do any of you gals have a simple wedding type wedding list? I have the books, but they are just so full of elegant fancy stuff.
I hope the time flies by though! I can’t wait to be done planning and diying and be there walking down the aisle!
