BOOKED! We are working with a small window of time but, I’m so excited that on yesterday we paid our deposits to book the photographer & videographer for our “Elopement”. These are the most important elements to us seeing as though no one will be in attendance.
As of now we plan to send the Edited DVD to our closest Family Members & Friends as our “Announcement”. SO EXCITING! If all goes well around the time that they get the announcement, they are going to expect it to be the invitation so this will be a wonderful suprise.
Im excited that we have scheduled our engagement shoot with our photographer also.
Its going to be at our Alma Mater this is where FI & I met back in 2008.
Next up, Booking hotel accomidations, and Finding the perfect attire!!!
Hows planning going fellow May Bee’s?

That is VERY exciting!!!
I’m a May bee but I feel like I’m running behind…we can do our own music with their sound system but I think I want a DJ now because I can’t handle downloading all of that music and thinking of who will be in charge of it.
I need to get my dress altered, and decide on tux style, MOH dress and BW dress. I need wedding shoes.
I also need to pay the venue, photographer and start working on vows. The only progress in Jan has been engagement photos and I’ll have the STD cards out next week.

@orchidblooms: Thats ok, slow progress is better than no progress! I’d say go with a DJ if its in your budget because downloading all of that music, and then being in charge of it( or designating someone) could be a headache.
I still need to order my dress and shoes! so hey ur one step ahead of me, im hoping i dont need many alterations. Although I might because I’ve lost some weight & im sure by May I will lose some more.
We’re using the same photographer for our E-pics so we just paid the deposit and have the remaining balance to worry about.
And our venue confirmed with us yesterday. SO THE LOCATATION & DATE IS OFFICIAL 🙂

- Wedding: February 2014 - Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts
@CHICJDWIFE: we just paid our deposit for photographer on Friday. Venue is holding our date as the event coordinator wasn’t there Friday to take deposit. And we booked caterer. We are doing a private/secret legal ceremony for personally reasons but then having a blessing ceremony and reception in May. Since we will be legally married before invitations go out we want to add a pic from our “love session” that says “we’re married!” Then invitation says please join mr and mrs blah for the blessing ceremony and reception. Almost the same idea as you have.
