Hi there date twin!

 I too have a 3/21/09 date.

How we decided on the date?

We both work in Higher Education so we knew that we needed to choose a date at a slow time for our jobs. 3/21 is when our first unofficial date when we decided to get together and just happened to fall on a Saturday. I also love the fact that it’s easy for both of us to remember 321.

Where are we in the planning process?

We have most of major details taken care of at this point. We’re having our wedding in Atlanta and live in VA so the majority of the planning has been long distance.

Still on the planning list:

Finding my accessories (veil, earrings)

Finalizing a hairstyle

Finalizing the groom and groomsmen look

Getting gifts for our parents and bridal party

Finalizing transportation for our Friday night outing and Saturday wedding

Smaller details: place cards, guest book, programs

Happy Planning!

I am one day away from you ladies 🙂 3/22/09. I chose March because the weather tends to be beautiful in March; sunny yet cool. As for choosing Sunday, my venue had a big price difference in Saturday vs. Sunday. Best wishes!

3…2…1…WEDDING!!

 

Hi Date Twins!!!

 

HOW WE DECIDED ON THE DATE:

We actually decided on the date before we got engaged. 😉  We were looking for a date in the first part of the year, as we have a lot of holidays, birthdays, etc in the second half.  And 3-2-1 is just fun and easier to remember!  My Fiance also proposed on 3/21/08, so we can have exactly a one year anniversary. 

 

WHERE WE ARE IN THE PLANNING PROCESS:

Well, doing a pseudo-destination wedding (we live in LA, my family and the wedding venue is in Chicago) is been a little difficult.  After the first of the year, we reaallly need to get cracking on the ceremony details and the programs, along with a photo montage and gift bags….etc etc…you get the drift…

Cant wait to hear from more!!!

3-2-1 bride here. Live in Venice and wedding is in St. Louis. Flying over with the in-laws and groomsmen….all Italians with very limited English and my side are all from St. Louis and surrounding areas.

We are having many moments in 2 languages, traditional catholic ceremony and buffet reception. It has been quite the ride so far with cultural differences and expectations!

Trying to finalize last minute details…mom is working on DIY centerpieces, and RSVP’s are pouring in…and already full of drama in that department!

Fiance is desperately searching for groomsmen gifts, I’ve found about 1/2 of Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts, and hope to find parent gifts week-of.

Definately starting to feel like a bride and am going through things that I was in denial about…oh that drama will NEVER happen to me….who was I kidding?!

Hey Ladies! I’m one week after 3/28/09. Every weekend is crafting with my mom and sister. This weekend we designed the programs and started work on them. They are very time consuming, so we only got 12 (of 50) done. Invitations go out this week.

We’re meeting with the coordinator this weekend to go over day of scheduling.

 I haven’t done a tasting yet with our caterer, is that bad? It isn’t a matter of picking one, our venue requires us to use theirs, just haven’t tasted her food…

Anyone else feel like the to do list keeps growing instead of shrinking?

61 days and counting for me…you girls are one week ahead.

Hey guys!

I am also a 3/21/09 bride. I decided on the date because it is during my law school spring break, and I didn’t want to miss a week of class (oh, and I had originally picked May, but then my Maid/Matron of Honor really wanted that week, so I gave it to her and rescheduled). Also, the wedding is in FL, so the weather will likely be pretty nice at the end of March.

 I have been engaged since 2/9/07, so I have had plenty of time to get nearly everything done, just working on small details:

Fiance needs to get groomsmen gifts

Still waiting on RSVP’s to know how many Out of Town bags to do, place cards, escort cards, etc.

DIY projects – a card box and flower letters for the church door

And I am doing my makeup trial and gown fitting this week 🙂
