hi there! congratulations!!! My sister just got married and i was there throughout ALL of the planning process. I just got engaged and we haven’t yet set a date, but i know for a fact that my sister’s one piece of advice would be to scout out your venue asap! September and october are popular months. are you paying for your own wedding?

you don’t need to have a big expensive bash, you can plan something efficient and within your budget so you don’t have to worry about anyone elses opinions. Or are you afraid that the family will give you crap about planning a wedding without having too much of your own funds?

If you’re planning on next fall, book your venue ASAP!  You may have to change your date if the venue you want is not available on 10/13/12.  However, you’re going to have to talk to you families so that you’ll know what venues you can afford.  I suggest that you don’t expect a lot of funds because of his sister’s wedding planning in progress and be pleasantly surprised and thankful for what your families do offer. You can have a beatiful wedding on a budget, especially if you’re willing to do a lot of DIY projects.  I suppose it sucks that his sis getting married cuts into your funding from parents, but where I come from, we pay for entire weddings ourselves and any money offered to us by our parents is a bonus.
