As of today it’s official – our date is September 20, 2013! Feels like a big day – I met with the day of coordinator I’m going to hire and secured our venue during our first visit to it.
Our wedding is semi-destination for our friends (family is local) and most said they’d like a Friday wedding so there’s time to enjoy the area the rest of the weekend. I’m so excited about a Friday wedding. I just went to one earlier this month and loved it.

@jd2012: I wanted to do a Friday wedding to save some money, but FI wasn’t having it! So I’m on 9/21…exciting, isn’t it?!

@KatyLovesJoey: We looked at Sept. 21 too, but after talking to our traveling guests and realizing that most didn’t mind Friday, we went for it! It’s a bit of cost savings that will go right into the food and open bar. 🙂
Check out the “Great song for Sept 21 brides” post – wish I could use it!

We are having a small ceremony, intermediate family and close friends on Sept 20th in my future-in-law’s backyard. Then a reception on Sept 28th for everybody else.
I have already booked the venue and the officiant.. it’s feeling very real now.

September 20 as well. No way in hell was I paying the Saturday ransom. Plus, as someone who has been to Friday weddings in the past, I greatly appreciated the excuse to take a half day at work. My guests are going to love me, they get to work a short day and eat and drink on my dime!

Hey ladies!!! I am getting married on the 20th as well. How are things coming along for you? How much to do have left to do? I feel like I am doing well at this point but when I think about details I feel a bit overwhelmed. Details (rehersal dinner dress, music selection, cake topper??, mrs. & mr. signs, ect..) Also, we sent out our STD and know that a few people can’t make it. We don’t have a formal “b” list made but we do have friends we could invite. Do you guys think I should send them STD cards now or wait to hear back on the RSVP cards??
On another note I am super happy with the 20th we had originally wanted the 21st but one of our venues was already book so moved to the 20th. Things book like a year in advance in Vail, fing crazy!!!!
