After being engaged for just over a year, I can finally start a countdown to an actual date!
Last night FI and I put the deposit on our reception venue and we will have the ceremony location booked by the end of the month!
So, in 326 days, after what will be 8 years of dating, we will be married Sat. Sept 12, 2015!
Who else shares this exciting day? What do you have booked/planned already?

Almost date twins.. I am Sept 19th 🙂 I am counting down every day! We got engaged in August and we will be getting married on our 5 year anniversary.
We only have our reception venue booked which does includes food and dj… but I already feel behind, we are finishing our engagement pictures this weekend for our save the dates. My first dress shopping appointment is this sunday. I am so excited!! I still need to figure out our ceremony and a photographer and flowers and cake! So much to do.. but I am loving every minute of it.
Definetly a relief having the venue set and a date though! I was very stressed before that got booked but thats the main thing and everything else will fall into place!

stephanie3973: I’m lucky in that we are having the reception at a hotel that provides decor, coordinator, catering, full bar, etc. I wanted super easy and stress free. I can’t wait for engagement photos!!
futuremrsJR: Sept 19 is the first date I had in mind, but neither the reception or ceremony venues we wanted were available. It just so happens that the 12th is my Grandparents Anniversary, so its a special day. Don’t worry, you still have 11 months to plan everything. I had my dress even before our date was picked, but everything else I need to plan! You’re right though, the worst part was coordinating with the ceremony and reception venues to make sure both were available on the same day.

This is my date as well! I only really have the venue locked down. I’ve become a little overwhelemed by caterers/photographers and had to take a step back. 🙂

FutureMrs.Huemiller: I wanted 9.12.15 so bad. Sooo bad sometimes I get upset I dont have it. (I’m a numbers person). But even booking our venue a year and a half out, EVERY date I wanted in September was already booked. So, August 22, 2015 it is!

bananahbee: I just started a new job, so I’m probably going to be putting everything off until December or the new year. I know I’ll probably be kicking myself, but at least I’ve locked down the ceremony and reception venues.
onthefritz: Ahh, that’s the day before my birthday! 🙂 I was worried about not being able to get a Saturday in September, but we chose some less popular venues (but exactly what we wanted), and it worked out. Im not sure where you live, but I usually have good weather on my birthday weekend, so I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you!

September 12th here too! We have our venue (which includes catering and cake) and photographer and are working on flowers and DJ. The flowers is a lot harder than I thought it would be.
