My wedding is set for May 22, 2010, the reason is because my fiance won’t get his Masters until that time and he wants to graduate before he gets hitch!  We booked our venue, and in the process of booking our photographer/videographer and searching for a church.  I’ve been researching almost every night on wedding stuff such as flowers, hair/makeup, etc. I already made a folder of same hairstyles/makeup and flowers.  I know we’re not getting married until next May, but I know time will fly by!

  • Wedding: May 2010

YAY!!! Some May 2010 brides!! I’m May 22, just like Cherry Blossom! Gosh, it sounds so far away, doesn’t it?? Well, so far we have a venue and photographer. I have a pretty good idea of the dress I want, but I can’t bring myself to commit just yet. Like the rest of you, I have TONS of ideas but it just seems too far to begin any execution. No matter how much I wish I could! I hope this board grows!!

Congrats everyone!!!  I am getting married on 5/22/10!  We have the date and venue and are probably going to take a little break with the wedding planning to try to have an engagement party.  I will probably start looking at some dresses at the end of March.

  • Wedding: May 2010

We’re getting married May 1, 2010.  Actually, he hasn’t even proposed yet, but we decided to start planning now while he waits for the right time to ask me.  We’ve got the ceremony/reception location booked, I’ve designed invitations (and all that goes with the invitation), STD’s, and the programs.  We’ve decided on a caterer, but haven’t booked anything yet because we haven’t announced it to our family and friends yet.  We’re hoping a friend of a friend will do the photographs and a friend’s brother is a DJ, so we’ve got that taken care of.  You’ll notice that I’ve got a touch (total understatement) of OCD.  The more I have planned now, the less stressed I’ll be later, right?  Good luck ladies and congratulations on your engagements!

You ladies are super lucky having a little more than a year till the nuptuals. I have 7 months till the big day! I am cool and calm only because I have been planing for the past 14 months. The best thing that you can do is plan organzie and buy everything now.

We have a few more vendors left to pay, but pretty much they are paid 3/4.

To cut cost and to satisfy my crafty side I am DIYing everything except the flowers. So all that is left is putting everything together.

 But you will see this time next year you will have so much done that you will think that you are missing something.

  • Wedding: June 2010 - Family Lake House

Hi ladies! Congrats to all!

 

My Fiance and I are planning a tentative May 1, 2010 wedding! There is a slight possibility it may change to June 12, 2010. 

 So far, we’ve scouted out a few reception sites, and pretty much decided we want an outdoor wedding. I’m trying to decide whether or not to have it at my grandma’s lake house (which needs a lot of yard work but is otherwise gorgeous!)

I’ve bought my dress (haven’t taken measurements yet) at a bridal salon in S.F. (this was last year, before I was officially engaged and when I was living up there) *sigh*  I love it, but it’ll be a bit of a trek to go up there for fittings!

I’ve bought all the birch centerpieces I love as well as lanterns, votives, a birdcage veil and cathedral veii, apothecary jars for candy bar and that’s it!

We just had our engagement shoot this weekend–I’m soooo excited to see the photos! Yay!

  • Wedding: July 2010

Hi Ladies!  I’m planning on getting married in May 2010 in NY . . . but we haven’t found a reception site yet.  We’ve narrowed it down to three but are trying to figure out the details related to each one.  Can’t wait to finally choose one so that we can start working on some of the details. 

I can’t believe all the details you all have worked out already – eek!
