@beeintraining:  color twins! That was the hardest part so far. I spent so long deciding and switching between navy and a lighter blue!

So far we have booked out venue and decided on things like photobooth and what not. We are now currently in the process of booking a photographer we are trying to decide between 2 that we really like.

I can’t wait, we started at 23 months, crazy how fast time flies by when you’re so busy.

So far we have booked both venues (we’re getting married at a winery on the beach, and the reception is down the road at an old stone pavilion on the beach too). We found our Photographer for $799 for booking so early! 

Last month, I found my dress for 60% off ($500 for a $1100 designer gown, brand new).  I have no idea how to store it though for 18 more months (maybe I’ll just casually wear it around the house…).

We booked flowers and decor in July, we’re booking Catering in January when they have official 2015 pricing, and we’re meeting with a DJ next week.

I’ve also been racking up Air Miles for our 2 week honeymoon to Europe (Greece, Italy and France).  Planning that will be a whole other story haha.

@beeintraining:  

@Scorpio88:  My FI & I have been engaged since March 2013. We started and it felt like the wedding date was far away but now it seems so close.

@ecrowe1218: 

@beeintraining:  Yeah for sure!  We got engaged June 9, 2013 and it was the 2nd night of our 8 day vacation, so June just flew by.  Then the summer we planned most of the big details for the wedding, and since September we’ve both been working 2-3 jobs each, and in school full time finishing up our last year.

Definitely helps when you’re so busy, although anyone else loving the engagement period?!  I’m anxious to call him my husband, but I’m still getting used to the “fiance” business, since we’ve been together for 4 years. Plus having a long engagement means more time to drag FI to bridal shows (hah, he loves me for that) and enjoy the planning phase.
