I think St. Malo’s is beautiful, but I don’t want to add anymore stress to the deal by worrying about whether enough people won’t come so we can fit in the church.  bummer. The price on DTR does seem high, especially during the summer but I wonder if there is a lot included in the fee or if it is just like the stanley hotel. I don’t even know what the average budget around here is anymore, but once you go over 10,000 which seems almost bargain basement on the bee and the knot I start to feel a little bad for spending so much money on just one day. On the other hand, with so many people coming from abroad I want there experience to be really good. In this case it’s more than a wedding… there are serious cultural and language barriers for our families and this could make or break their relationship. So it has to be especially well done and there are a lot of extra costs like translators and transportation for the foreigners and arranging things for them to do while they are in town. what do ya’ll think is a reasonable budget?

Hi Colorado Bees! I just wanted to let you know that I might not be able to make it for lunch tomorrow I found out this afternoon that some paperwork for a grad program I plan to start in the fall is due this Monday and not next Monday, as I was origninally told I am going to try and get it done after I go out with some gal pals tonight, but if I can’t, I will have to do it tomorrow. I am sorry, and I hope you will keep me posted when other CO Bee events come up! Hopefully I will meet you soon!

I meant to tell you…iHeartColorado…you should check in the archives; someone posted awhile ago about a calculator where you plug in your zip code and it tells you the average wedding cost in your area. I think it was a bit upwards of $30k in the Denver-metro area.

aww, it looks like all the momentum has died down here…. I’m a total lurker on weddingbee, we’re not even officially engaged yet, but everything is so pretty! anyway, I live in Boulder and work wherever I can find work. I just wanted to say hi to other CO hive readers! We totally need a CO bee! There are so many fab. things (like mountains and canyons) that the rest of the country is missing out on from lack of a CO bee, imho.

Agreed, violarulz.  It’d be great to have a CO bee!  [Soon-to-be-congrats, btw!]

 The whole world of blogging was a bit of a mystery to me when I became engaged.  At this point, I have enough to talk about that I could start a blog, but now I don’t have time!  My wedding’s in two and a half months, and now all the DIY projects are coming to the forefront…agh!  For all of you brides who have a way’s until your wedding, start a blog now, and apply when you’ve got some substance!

Regarding lunch a week or two ago: July2008Bride and I were the only ones to show, but we had a blast anyway!  Even went tiara-hunting after lunch!  I’d love it if we could organize another WB get-together, if everyone’s interested!

July2008Bride – I truly hope that you’re feeling better soon.  If you need any help with wedding stuff, let me know.

Limesnall & Violarulz – so who will be the first one of us to apply to be a full blown Bee?

I’d totally be up for another attempt at a get together.  I feel badly that I wasn’t able to make it.

Well have a great Friday and weekend to follow

July2008Bride-I am sorry to hear that you were in a bad accident. I hope you recover nicely! And, I know it’s odd since we haven’t met, but let me know if you need anything! I’m always up for helping out another Colorado gal.

ViolaRulz-You will have to let us know when you get engaged. Maybe we can plan our next outing around hearing your story?

I am definitely up for another get together; I was so bummed that I missed the last one. Stupid grad school!

And, I definitely agree that we need a CO bee. I started a blog (mostly because I am a closet lover of writing), but I am not sure that it competes with others I have seen. I would love feedback or to support another CO gal who is a wannabee

<span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-family: tahoma; font-size: 13px”>July2008Bride- OMG! I’m not working right now, so if you need any help around the house I’m kinda available most days of the week…..

<span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-family: tahoma; font-size: 13px”><span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-family: Verdana; font-size: 10px”>I’m glad I was able to jump-start this forum again. it’s fun to hear about people HERE, not just in all the places I’ve lived before Boulder/Denver.

 PS- if you know of anyone who needs a paralegal, I’d REALLY appreciate the reference.

Welcome, vailbride!  Congrats!  How’s the planning going so far away?

 [Debi, I’m so sorry to hear about everything…please let me/us know if there is anything you want help with.  Are all things cancelled?]
