Hi!! I’m 9-28-13 too!!

I booked the venue and the band, and am interviewing wedding planners at the end of the month. I live in a different state than my wedding, but my family lives there so I come back a lot to visit (6 hour drive).

You can do whatever you want!! Where is your wedding? Mine’s in So Cal so the end of Sept is probably the nicest weather of the whole year (average high 76, low 65). I’m going for a summery/romantic/classic feel- champagnes and light pinks, nothing rustic at all! My ceremony is outside and reception is in a ballroom. I haven’t chosen my “official colors” for bridesmaids and stuff, but I have a general idea of soft floral colors. What are you thinking??

Since we live in the city and the bridal market is competative, we are basically finished with booking. So far, we’ve got:

Venue
DJ
Caterer
Photographer

All have deposits in and are ready to roll. Now we get to sit back and relax for a bit.

Yey! We just booked yesterday so I am officially a 28th September 2013 bride too! I am in LOVE with my venue, I had decided it was my favourite since before we were engaged but didn’t want to enquire about availability until the proposal actually happened.

We got engaged a month ago and I then found out that pretty much every Friday and Saturday is already booked in 2012 and 2013 and 2014 is already getting booked up too. Clearly I’m not the only girl that loves it! I decided to give up on the dream venue as i didn’t want to wait until 2014 to get married (I’ve already waited 8 years for the engagement!) so started looking elsewhere. I lined up viewings at other venues for this past weekend, however my mum decided to ring my favourite venue last week to ask if they’d had any cancellations…… and they had a Saturday in September! We asked them to hold the date for us and we went to visit it along with 4 other venues. It was even nicer in real life than in the pictures and was the nicest place that we saw all weekend.  

I’m so excited that now I have I date I can start booking other things too. Yey!

We are finalizing a September 28th date with our venue too!! Will be signing the contract in the next week or so!  We also have asked our wedding party and have ideas for a florist and photographer but that is about it.  Our colors are going to be royal blue and shades of purple.  It’s so fun! ๐Ÿ™‚

cubarican- Haha, yes I know! No leaves! Your colors are fall-ish anyway, so that works! I don’t think you need to go rustic at all. That’s funny about your Fiance, I hope he stays cool! I am going with suits over tuxedos, but I don’t think it will be too hot for us. 

askja- That’s great you got your venue! Ours wasn’t really planned either, we were thinking Sep 1 but someone had a hold on it so we got them to give us the Sunday rate for Saturday the 28th!

purplelover13- Congrats on setting your date! I’m going to ask my wedding party this week, though they all know already ๐Ÿ™‚

ohmybears- Nice! You’re all set!

Kaylaj- Pretty! I don’t want the time to pass too fast because it’s so fun! I’ve been on cloud 9 since getting engaged, I’m actually not too antsy. I just spend a lot of time on wedding websites haha.

Another 9/28/13 bride here! ๐Ÿ™‚

We have our Church, venue, caterer (came with venue), DJ, and photographer.  We have narrowed down our photobooth to two and in general taking advantage of any sales/coupons (craft supply, flip flops, vistaprint etc).  We’re trying to take care of all the big ticket items before the prices go up.

 @cubarican17:  Pinterest has been super helpful!  Also, we’ve gone to a few bridal fairs just to get ideas. . .look for free coupons online.

I am! After changing the date like 15 times. I think we are set on Sept 28th. Well only because the venue will not change the date anymore :p

 

I have bought my dress…and so far thats it. I have not decided on a color scheme. I think that part is the most frustrating.

Another Sept 28th here.  So far we have booked the venue which includes food and DJ, have the ceremony musicians (friends of mine), and we have an appointment to meet with the photographer that we want.

@RunnerBride13:  We are having our wedding at the Radisson in Tucson.  We had thought about having it in San Diego, but it was much easier and cheaper to have it in Tucson!

@lybarra:  Yes, AZ is way cheaper!!! I grew up in SD and my family lives there and we won’t even live in AZ when we have our wedding so it made more sense to have it there. The Radisson looks lovely!
