    I’m getting married on August 8th!  I am so excited!!!  Next month I have my tasting at my venue, which has to be one of the most fun parts of wedding planning.  That same weekend, I am going to have a dress fitting…maybe not the best timing, but I am really looking forward to seeing my dress again!

    How is planning going for the rest of you August brides?

    Yay for August brides! I’m getting married August 29. I am loving planning my wedding, although lately I can’t seem to make any decisions for the life of me. Last week I hit that point where I all of a sudden felt like, omg, I still have SO MANY things to plan…favors, shoes, earrings, gifts, etc. All of my big stuff is taken care of, but I have been absolutely obsessing over a million tiny details lately. It’s driving me crazy! I have two showers planned, one on June 20 and the other on July 18. Are any of you worried about being too hot in your dress on your day? Both our ceremony and reception are indoors, so they will be air conditioned, but I’m worried I’m going to melt with the heat!

    August 15th! We can’t wait! We’re from Canada, so, although it can be hotter here during the summer, being hot in my dress shouldn’t be much of a problem – I hope. Where is everyone honeymooning?

    August 8th for us!  I am really getting excited as the day approaches.  We still have plenty to do — need to find a cake, florist, get my dress altered, get the guys’ outfits figured out . . . and of course, shoes!  🙂

    I feel like we’re all in the same boat sailing towards August…all the big stuff is knocked out, and now thinking about ALL the details, there’s SO MUCH!!

     …time lines, songs, accessories, fonts, showers, bridal party gifts, parent gifts, honey moon details…

    I sort of am getting to the point that I just want to be married already… 🙂

    man – we definitely have to take care of the little stuff…but I am putting it off just a couple more weeks. 

    So what are you guys going to do about the heat anyway?  That’s been a worry of mine since we chose the date (Aug. 1)!  I’d love to take outdoor pictures, especially since there are beautiful lakes and gardens, but I can’t stand the idea of getting super sweaty (and/or smelly) before the reception.  Are you guys doing outdoor pictures?  Are you just planning to redo your makeup before the reception?

    My aunt is convinced she will follow me around that day with ice cubes to put down my dress.  Gee, thanks.  🙂

    I’m nervous about my makeup melting, too…I am planning to do outdoor photos, but I will have the chance to re-do my makeup before our reception.  I can handle the heat though – I just hope it doesn’t rain!  I love outdoor photos!

    My shower is on June 6th, and my bachelorette party is on July 25th (which is also my birthday).  I love bridal showers and I can’t wait for mine!  I’m not sure what the plans are for either of the parties – do you know the details of yours, or are you going to be surprised?

    I am going to Mexico for my honeymoon.  Hopefully the swine flu subsides by then!

    August 8th brides…this coming Thursday (4/30) is 100 days until our weddings!!

    oooh – my first shower is coming up, too.  May 30th.  When are you guys sending out invitations anyway?  I think we want ours out by the end of the last week of May because we have a RSVP date of July 4th.

    ehh5000-  i don’t really know much about the bach party – i’ve heard a few ideas.  

    Yeah…rain is an issue too.  HA – at least it will cool things down…but that presents another problem.  We have a 2 room church basically.  So we’ll be exiting from the back of the church, walking past all the windows (while outdoors) and entering the back of the church to walk down the aisle.  Could get interesting if it rains.  Oh well – cute umbrellas, right?
