thought i’d share my planning update here with you guys–

we are going this weekend to visit the fiance’s parents/meet with vendors (getting married where they live).

we are meeting with 1 of our officiants (Catholic Deacon– we are having a Rabbi too), hopefully that won’t be too stressful!!! (epecially for my fiance, he’s the Jewish one)

we are meeting with a limo company to see the vehicles.  Hopefully they will be perfect and we’ll book them considering I have read nothing but good reviews, and they were the best quote (SUNDAY DISCOUNT!!, other companies were like, of course we dont give a sunday discount…why would we do that…)

AND- TRYING ON MY DRESS FOR THE FIRST TIME!!!! (it better fit….) Well, I know it will need alterations so it’s not going to fit, and they don’t start alterations til like, 1.5 months out.  But it just better not be too tight ๐Ÿ™‚

what are you all up to??

august-o 28th’er!

 

I am putting a hold on all wedding plans so I can really focus on my business. However, JUNE is going to be a month of wedding planning craziness!

I’m going to be doing everything besides getting the venues, photographer and wedding planner all in june! Am I crazy? haha.

@Lilubird:how crazy you are depends on how big your wedding is and where it is being held!  

At this point, I have EVERYTHING done (just booked the last thing a few days ago– limo) and all we have left to do is details with our already booked vendors (menu choices, music choices, itinerary, etc)

Almost! I’m an August 29th-er here. We’re bringing FIs family out to Hawaii so we figured since people are vacation already, they wouldn’t mind the Monday wedding. But, I guess since Hawaii’s already a big destination spot we’re not finding crazy great deals on venues ๐Ÿ™

I love the idea of a Sunday wedding! And I totally agree, Sundays are the best days of the week for us too…just to relax and spend some much needed time together.

Congrats on  your big day!

Im an Aug 28ther too and a lot of people thought I was crazy because its a Sunday…..but I got to negotiate great deals plus its a destination wedding in Europe so most people will be there on holidays anyways….Sunday….MEH!

We skipped the STD and went right to the invites to give people ample time to plan their trips and so far everyone is a Yes!  I am most excited about our gorgeous venue and cant wait to see it all decorated….an old villa that has been transformed into a restaurant, surrounded by old lush trees…..SOOOOO excited!   Congrats to you all!!

We’re August 27th, but there isn’t a thread for that day so i’m gonna crash yours ๐Ÿ˜‰

I still have SO much to do… We’ve got the major things booked but we’re still discussing a bunch of slightly less important things. Our invitations just shipped today, so I’ll be able to address them and pretty them up when they get here.
