- Wedding: August 2015
Navy blue, sunflower yellow, and lace (he’ll be in his air force blues, so it’ll match nicely)
A park in my hometown
I decided I didn’t want expensive ones as I’ve never really been a shoe person and my dress is full length so they wont be seen, so I first ordered some patent pink court shoes from New Look (UK shop) which we’re only £20! But when they arrived they were uncomfortable and the heel was higher than I wanted – I usually like high shoes but decided I’m better going low for the wedding.
So I send those back and ordered some nude peep-toe low heel shoes from Clarks which were £40. They are so much better, they are padded and comfy and the heel is low without looking frumpy. I doubt I will wear them again after the wedding but they are just right for the big day 🙂
What have you gone for??
Also a 22 of August here! Got engaged last June 11 on our anniversary 🙂 11 is my number as
We have the officiant, photographer, venue, honeymoon, dress and shoes, my wedding band, music so basically all the big stuff.
We are still needing to organise the flowers, his suit and his ring, send the invites, the decor for the venue, the meal plan,and the accomodation for the night (which isn’t an issue as we are having the wedding at a hotel).
That sounds great! What kind of wedding band have you gone for? We’ve booked an indie style band made up pf 4 guys (age 20-30).
Have you got your dress back yet or is it in storage? I ordered mine 15 months ago and it has arrived in the shop now so I’m going trying it on this Saturday! I’m so excited but also slightly nervous!!
Sorry it just clicked that when you said ‘my wedding band’ you probably meant band as in ring!!
Either way tell me about your music plans!
An indie band sounds cute though! if I had the money I would have had something similar.
I bought my dress on ebay actually from someone on the east coast. It’s an allure and it’s absolutely perfect, it’s just hanging in my closet until the big day at this point haha.
I’m ebay obsessed, I’ve already bought almost all of my honeymoon outfits off ebay! So buying my wedding dress on there would have felt quite natural!
Date Twin! We just completed Pre Cana, I have my dress, vail, bridesmaids dresses, ceremony venue, reception venue, caterer, DJ, florist, photographer, and videographer, we picked out table settings, chairs, and linens and I booked my hotel room for the night before & wedding night. We have a cake tasting on the 21st (but I really need to stop eating cake and go to the gym more). We are also having our parents meet for the first time on the 21st…. and I’m really nervous about that.
We are still trying to schedule transportation for the wedding party & the guests, need to schedule & take our engagement photos, book our honeymoon (where is everyone else going?), pick out tuxes, buy rings, and all the last minute & diy things… oh and of course I need to lose like 15 lbs before the wedding/ honeymoon.
We are getting married on August 22, 2015 in Chicago, IL. We are planning a wedding for 300 people. A lot I know. It is a evening formal affair.
Is this a date that has significant meaning to you guys or it was just a date you wanted/ chose for your venue reasons/etc?
Like for example we chose it because my/our number is 11. By coincidence we met on the 11th, the next month I had my birthday (11th) and then started dating 1 month later on the 11th also by coincidence. Because there was two of us now I wanted the number to be 22, and August was the best month for us. It will also be 2 years and 2 months since we met, also 22.
I would love to hear anyone else’s story 🙂
