It’s finally feeling real. FI and I are headed up to Maine tonight for a long weekend to look at venues, meet with the caterer and see what flowers are in season.
The yacht club, where we think we want to have our wedding, is holding Sept 24th, 2011 for us until we can see it. So I maybe exactly 1 year out!
I’ve packed my wedding planning binder in my suitcase and I’m excited to start using it.
I only wish my mom could be there too but my parents are on the west coast. FMIL lives in Maine though so we’ll be staying with her and she’ll be my mom for the trip.
I just can’t believe the planning is actually starting. It’s been surreal up until now.

I’m just so excited they are holding the date for us. This venue doesn’t do weddings in July & August due to member events, and their next available dates aren’t until Sept 2012. I’m so glad FMIL got right on calling venues the minute we decided we wanted to do Maine!
I’m just feeling giddy and I’m so happy FI is interested in the planning too! At least this part of it.

How exciting! Enjoy your weekend and plan to use all of your time! I went down to New Orleans this summer and every day I met with people. Good luck and have fun!
