Looks like I’m the only April 17th! It’s a Sunday, which was sooo much more affordable for our first choice venue. So far we have: booked venue for ceremony/reception (which includes catering and alcohol), booked DJ, picked out save the dates, meeting with photographer this week to take engagament pics, bought bridesmaid dresses, family/close friends are doing cake and flowers (yay!) and most importantly, I got my dress yesterday! I’m excited to be planning with you ladies. =)

Hooray…another April 1 bride! The reaction I’ve gotten to the date has ranged from laughter and “That’s awesome!” to suspicion. But it’s so easy to remember!

We have booked the church, reception venue, picked out my dress and the Flower Girl and Maid/Matron of Honor dresses as well as selected the attendants.
Our date is 4/30/11!
In the months before our wedding I’ll be writing my dissertation, moving to my fiance’s house in a different city, and adjusting to living with him for the first time! So, not surprisingly, I’m trying to take care of as many details as I can now.

hurrah for organized April brides! I thought I was getting ahead of myself with our ‘progress’ towards wedding plans, but now I see I’m pretty much on track with the rest of you! We’ve booked: church, reception venue, photographer, caterer, band and brought my dress (arrives in Sept!). I’ve also started on a mountain of DIY projects.

April 30, 2011 for us! It is so exciting to hear of everyone else’s plans and ideas!
So far we have planned on fuschia and bright green for our colors (he is thrilled…lol) and the location will be on the lake in Mississippi. Still working on the other details and I am making pom napkin holders right now – love them and will be making all 200 for months it seems!
How is everyone else’s planning going?

@lioness: I know this was posted months ago but I just found out recently you can find date twins! We are also HUGE yankee fans but that’s not why we picked it. Mariano still wears 42, I think he is the only player left. ANYWAY, I wanted spring because tulips are my favorite flower and I’m a math person sooooooo . .. . 4=2+1+1 (yeah, a lot of people don’t get it at first). also when he proposed it was 387 days from our first date so naturally 387 days from the proposal date was when we had to get married. (just got lucky it was a Saturday)
