- Wedding: September 2013 - Lake Anna Winery
I feel so lost in planning!! We changed the venue twice, date, my dress, and theme! We only have over 4 months to plan and not much is done between unforseen health issues and no insurance and finances, but we are determined to enjoy it!!!
Date – October 5, 2013!!
Guests – approx. 200 (this is just close family and intimate friends.. we both have big familys..)
Venue – His family’s property – outdoors, maybe fix up the old barn?, making a tent out of poles, canvas, and heavy wiring (OH is a jack of all trades)
Food – His family is providing food for the reception and my mom’s best friend is coordinating it all so we don’t have to stress over it. 🙂 My mom’s other friend is providing food for the rehearsal dinner, which I’m almost more excited about because she’s 120% Italian and her cooking is out of this world!
Ceremony – OH is making gorgeous benches for some seating, using haybales with clothes for the rest if we can’t make enough, also making an arch that I will decorate with flowers and linens, thinking about hanging mason jars or barrels with baby’s breath down the aisle
Reception – DIY tent, haybales for tables (OH is pulling this off), either moving the benches for seating or doing more haybales?
Attire – My dress is Alfred Angelo 2413. Love it SO much better than my first dress and it was cheaper! Cowgirl boots underneath. Bridesmaids are wearing mismatched sundresses ranging from a coral/peachy color to blush pink with cowgirl boots, Groom is wearing nice jeans, cowboy hat, jacket and boots and the groomsmen are too
Details we NEED to attend to!: Engagement pictures/save the dates (this weekend), invitations (Groupon for Vistaprint!), flowers, decorations, DJ, ceremony officient, making my bouquet (fabric!), pricing for hair/make up for me and my girls, researching hotels for out-of-town guests, and his wedding band!
Countdown as of this moment – 143 days
Anything I’m missing ladies?? Inspiration/thoughts/ideas are WELCOME!
ALSO, if I post inspiration pictures, will you bee’s help me figure out what’s needed?? THANK YOU!
