So after going back and forth over when the big day will be, we finally went with our very first choice — 9/10/11. It works perfect for us! We both work for the same company and have every other Friday off. This date falls on a week where that is an off-Friday for us which means I will have that day to run around and do all those little last minute things that everyone keeps posting about (reminding myself to take deeeep breaths!). Another huge bonus is that it’s a date that SHOULD be easy for him to remember! The problem? Apparently half of Central Florida … ar at least the east coast part of it .. decided that day was a great day as well! We really want to get married on the water but after checking around the past two days, we have found that all the good places are booked and most of them have been booked in the past two weeks!!! There is one place left…a small “house” right on the water in one of the city parks where I live. We are stopping after work today on the way home to put the deposit on it. I REALLY want to go at lunch but it’s a little bit of a drive to get there and back all during lunch. If someone goes and rents this place today before I can get there, I am seriously going to cry!
Sorry…just needed to get all that out. 🙁

@helenc32: I am so crossing my fingers for you!! Could you maybe explain to a manager or boss the situation and maybe you could take a little longer of a break??

That is so frustrating! Booked within the last two weeks? Keeping my fingers crossed for this place!

Good Luck! wedding dates like that usually do get booked pretty fast, I actually met with our dj last week and he said he had 4 or 5 calls for that same day.

We got a place booked AND it’s on the beach! It is a little north of where we live but not too far…only about a 35 – 40 min drive from our house. It is one of the city owned parks with a building and it is BEAUTIFUL! The inside is painted white with pale yellow trim…pefect since one of my colors will be yellow. There is a brand new deck on the back of it with a walkway that leads right to the beach. It’s perfect! I didn’t even know about it and a woman at work just happened to overhear me talking and came over to tell me about it. The biggest plus??? They take phone reservations AND it is almost $200 cheaper than the other place…not to mention 10 x’s nicer! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! 🙂
Whew! Now if I can just get everything else to work out. Even though this is my 2nd marriage, this is the first wedding I am planning. I never understand why all those brides on tv get all crazy and talk about how stressful plannng a wedding is. Yep…eating those words!

Oh, no! Well good luck to you. As I am less than one month out, can I suggest that you take at minimum the week off before your wedding… two weeks if you can. Trust me, you’ll need it 🙂 Just taking off the day before might add more stress than you’ll need. Good luck with your venue!
