Hey!! Soo FI and I have been engaged since Sept 20th 2012 and were going to get married in Dec. 12, 2012…. That didnt happen do to work schedules.
Fi got offered a job overseas and we have been seeing eachother every 2-3 months ( last time being for my bday on March 1-5). We have been getting anxious to get married but were planning for a june- July wedding… Well talking to FI on sunday night… we decided to do it on April 28th ( our 3 anniversary)… So in 1.5 months…
FI bought flights in monday.. We told our family on tuesday… And cant be more stressed and happy haha!!
so far we have:
church and priest ( catholic)
invites sent to be made (will be received either monday or tuesday of next week)
dress ( since sept ’12) just needs alterations
this saturday Im meeting with catering, seamstress and decorator…
anything else missing??

Thank you girls!! My mom is freaking out!! I’m 27 but am the first of 3 daughters to get married… So yeah. Shes freaking out over details and since I work in the event industry I know an event can be planned in even less than that… I am very much for that phrase “if at the end of the day you are married to the love of your life it was a perfect day”
Photographer … Im meeting up with them on Monday 10:30am.
Marriage Licence.. Ok Yes I asked me MIL to help me with that since my FI is not here… He’s a guy anyways… when I asked yesterday who he wanted the witnesses to be… He was like whaat? Witness?? What do you mean? Why so much protocol? Cant God and the Sun be our witnesses?? Haha so yeah… cant count on him for details haha
I am having an outdoor ceremony in a small garden/church. There’s an area next to it so we are going to have the reception there. ceremony from 2-3 and 3-6-6:30pm the reception… Wines, beer and maybe rum and soft drinks and water, heavy appetizers and small wedding cake with dessert table.
I really love that trend where in the night they light a brown bag and it floats in the air ( i guess making wishes) since the event will be in the day I am thinking of doing white helium balloons and have everyone wish something and then count to 3 and release it… That can be the ending of the event or something. I think it will make for cool pics…
Any other ideas for garden/ day events? Photobooth or activities?
