  • Wedding: October 2018

Ok. We changed the date (now it’s 10/5/18, a Friday) and booked the venue last week. I’ve picked the caterer (taco bar and should be super fun, and pretty easy going and not too expensive), and I’ve picked the photographer and will have her booked on 2/15/17).   Now I’m working on losing weight as I’ve got about 70 to get to my goal. My mom lives in CA, where I’m from but I live in TN now, and she’s coming to visit in June and wants to check out dresses. I’m not planning on getting one then but it’ll be fun to look. She’s not paying either so I need to save money on the dress so I can get my photographer and that’s one place I chose to cut budget and I’ll likely pick up something at a sample sale in November. 

 

The only thing I wanted knocked out was the venue and maybe photographer. Everyone keeps telling me that October is a popular month and venues aren’t cheap, I was lucky to find a venue that’s new to weddings and they are building their portfolio so I’m getting it for about $2500 instead of the 4-7k that seems to be the going rate during that time.

supercoolstephy :  That’s an awesome deal on your venue! I’m so out of my element with planning this. I wasn’t even sure I wanted a photographer but if we do decide to, is that something that needs to be booked this early?

Hi!! The waiting is so hard! I keep researching wedding bands when I should be looking at photographers or something. 

We have our venue for 10-13-18. That’s it! Excited to plan more once I graduate from grad school this May.

I went to a bridal shower last weekend and started to get super antsy listening to the bride talk about how stressful planning has been for her. I loved my long engagement because it was supposed to take some of the stress out of planning for me. But then I didn’t plan very much! It kicked me into high gear, I guess. I booked my photographer and DJ today!

 

For those of you that have booked your photographer, what was the package and how much was it?

So far we have the venue (which includes food &alcohol), videographer, and DJ booked. I have my florsit & photographer picked out but we havent put down our deposits yet.  We are in talks with our church too so hopefully that gets nailed down (I HAVE BEEN SO STRESSED OVER THE CHURCH) and I am going dress shopping this week. My grandma is coming to visit and its more a fun trip to try dresses on rather than something serious. I feel like things re getting planned quick and I am starting to second guess things. Am I crazy?
