I’m a QC bride! And we have the same date!!!  Only I’ll be celebrating my one year anniversary when you are getting married. πŸ™‚ Wait…did you happen to receive a call from Louise at Staacks recently??

I met with Staack’s last weekend and I believe she has you penciled in for September 18, 2009!  I was very surprised to see someone with our wedding date (it’s a Friday) and I looked you up on QCWeddings and saw your wedding was in 2010.  So, I brought it up with Louise and she said she would look into it.

What are you doing for flowers? We haven’t decided yet, still waiting to get our bid back.

We are using Robin from LeCake and All Star Mobile Entertainment. 

Our planning is probably not quite as far as it could be, but we have everything booked (except for flowers) and I have my dress and bridesmaid dresses.

I’m a QC Bride! I always looked at the map and thought it would be nice if we were on it, but thought there probably wasn’t enough of us. I’ll be getting married July 25.

Yeah, the QC forum on the knot is always really dead too.

My fiance and I are having a desserts only reception, so it’s funny that you say you don’t want to spend money on desserts, because that’s pretty much all we’re having! We’re having a fruit display, cheese display, wedding cake, Whitey’s mini-malts (!!!), and an assortment of brownies, cookies, mini pies, creme brulee, canolis, eclairs, cheesecake, fruit tarts, truffles, petit fours, etc. Mmmm…

I got my dress at Storybook in Dewitt. I have been impressed with their service so far. I bought my dress off the rack and they let me come in to "visit" it. πŸ™‚ I also went to Celebrations, Hope’s, David’s, and the Bridal Room.

I’ve heard of Funktastic 5 is really good!

Our photog is Rick Jennisch. I’ve been obsessed with his work for years.  I like Giraffe, too. My friend who is getting married 3 weeks after me is using Giraffe.

Hi july09bridetobe!  Share some of your plans!
