- Wedding: December 2011
6.5 months to go date twins!! Ahhh!!!
6.5 months to go date twins!! Ahhh!!!
I’m a date twin too! Less than 6 months to go! Ahh!! I’m working on Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses…much more stressful than I thought it would be. I’m considering just having the girls pick out their own but my sister (MOH) and mom don’t think that works for, as they call it, a “formal evening winter wedding” I want the dresses to be black and long, which is something that is easy to find in dept. stores and such. What are you girls doing for Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses?
@JuliaH17: Hi date twin! I’ve told my bridesmaids to find their own dresses within a colour scheme of grey-ish-purple-ish mushroomy colour. I’ve basically given them no direction at all, style, length, etc. I want them to look mismatched but in a bit of a colour theme (the sash on my dress is a dark purplish grey). I’ve told them i’ll pay for them if they are under $200 and give them $200 towards the dress if they find something more expensive. One of my BMs found a designer sheath dress for $900!! Whatever works for her – I think she’s trying to pull a pippa middleton 😉
Go with whatever you want! Granted my wedding is a casual summer vineyard wedding (sounds like the opposite of yours, literally!), but really i think mismatched dresses can look amazing no matter what the setting/situation.
Things are starting to happen..we got our invites printed last week, booked our photographer, hotel for the week before the wedding, and going for a tasting next month to chose the food!
Less than 6 months, yikers!
@ScarletBegonia: OMG my Future Sister-In-Law has been dubbed “pippa” among my other BMs. I guess there’s on in every wedding party…
@JuliaH17: My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are long strapless chiffon lavender dresses. I wanted the girls to all match because, like I mentioned above, my Future Sister-In-Law is a “pippa” so I’m not sure I want to give her that much freedom. If all I said was pick a purple dress she’d probably pick a purple dress made out of crystals….
hecks to they Yeeahh!!! for Decemer 17 weddings!!! 🙂 We set the date last December, 2 months after we got engaged!
I think the only things we have left are the bands, the gifts for the party and pastor, shoes, food(we know who is doing it, just don’t know what to eat) honeymoon(NYC), and the invitations and programs..
other than that, I think we are READY to roll..
Hello fellow date twins! 🙂
Almost everything in our wedding is planned, just have to get it now! I can’t wait for December!!! Yay!!! 🙂
I’m December 17, too! It’s my grandparent’s 62nd anniversary, so I hope that will bring me lots of luck.
just gone 4 month before-wedding-versary!
So excited :):) All we’ve got left to do is organise transportation from the venue to hotels, and get our bands. Oh and I need to find my shoes.
But I can’t wait til December!!!!
I am getting married December 17th! 🙂
I have everything done, except my centerpieces. Which I know what I want, I just haven’t bought the items yet.
Very glad to know I am not the only one.
yay december 17! 🙂
just bought all my centerpiece supplies last week, and i’m starting to DIY them this weekend!
my bridesmaids are giving me heart palpitations! one won’t return my phone calls/text messages/facebook messages… 🙁 i really want her in the wedding, but the dresses were supposed to be ordered on august 18! super last deadline is sept 8, but some of them will need alterations, so i’m all stressed about that! haha… it’s always something, right? 😉
still need to book hotel, honeymoon, get tuxes picked out, and figure out transportation…
we, too, are having a catholic ceremony, but we decided against the gap… i might regret it later, but i just couldn’t see having everyone mill around my town (where there’s nothing to do) for hours waiting on the reception to start… so we’re doing the ceremony at 2p, the reception from about 3:30-7:30(ish), and then we are inviting everyone to our favorite local pub to keep the fun going (after everyone changes clothes, of course!)… i figured it wouldn’t be awful because it’ll be dark super-early anyway, so it’ll “feel like nighttime” at the halfway mark of the reception…. heehee…
PHEW! I was starting to get stressed out that I still had so much to do. Glad I’m not alone =)
ME ME ME!!! 😛 We’re getting married December 17th, on our 3 year anniversary 🙂
The countdown has reached the teens ladies! Just 19 days till we marry our wonderful FIs 🙂
