jerzgrlnmd :  We got it from Costco!  I haven’t seen it in person (my mom has it in NJ) but the online reviews were good and it was only $59.99 for a 24″x32″ canvas

  • Wedding: July 2017 - The Lodge at Little Seneca Creek

sunshineglam :  Love all of your details! We just sent out our invitations on Monday afternoon, so people should be getting them by the end of the week! I can’t wait!!!!

jerzgrlnmd :  I LOVE that dress! It looks amazing on you!

As far as planning goes, we’ve almost finalized all of our special songs, and we’ll be sending our playlist off to our DJ soon. I think that’s about it since I last updated. It all seems to be coming together, and now I’m just so excited about the wedding that it’s hard to focus at work! Haha.

Hey everyone. Fiance and I took engagement pics last Saturday and my stepdad did them for us. We took most of them at the Inner Harbor. Here’s one my mom snuck and sent to us lol, the rest should be done soon (we took over 500 😳) Fiance has an engagement ring too as you can see hee hee

 

Hope everyone one is doing well!

  • Wedding: July 2017 - The Lodge at Little Seneca Creek

sagefemme :  We’re getting married on a Friday evening (6-11pm) next month. Here are our vendors:

  • Venue: The Lodge at Little Seneca Creek ($2,740)
  • Caterer: PIGS ($2,225)
  • Alcohol: Lakefront (literally next door to PIGS–we’re picking up the beer and wine and PIGS will bring the coolers and ice) ($685)
  • Cake: Samantha’s Sweetscapes (a friend’s company–she has a Facebook page) ($300)
  • Officiant: A friend (donating $200)
  • Photography: Tara K, LLC ($1550–I know her prices have gone up since we booked her though)
  • DJ: Bryan George Music ($1500)
  • Linen rental: Grand Rental Events ($400)
  • Flowers: Scentsational Florals ($500)

I bought my dress from Tradesy for $200, and my Fiance is renting his suit from Men’s Warehouse for $120. We aren’t doing a lot of decorations, and we bought our seedpaper favors for $25/70 from Amazon. We did electronic Save the Dates. Hmm…I think that’s pretty much it. Let me know if you have other questions about how to save money as you plan or if you want contact info for any of our vendors (you should be able to find most through Google though). Good luck!
