Just a celebratory post to say that I’m FINALLY joining the ranks of brides who have their wedding date set! I only have 6 months to go, so I’m definitely going to be combing these boards for as much advice as I can get.
On that note, any other 7.10.10 brides out there? What stage are you in with your planning?
I’m already loving being a Bee!

Thanks for the kind comments! My fiance and I got engaged last April, and initially set our date for July 31, 2010. I was trying to find a job, and when my search continually yielded nothing, our parents began to get worried about us getting married with only one income. So, under pressure, we cancelled. Then, in November, I got hired! My job’s been going really well, so around New Years, my fiance and I started talking about having our wedding in July again.
In the early stages of our engagement, I did some planning, so I have some things covered already. Here’s where I am:
I have my dress, the wedding party, bridesmaids dresses almost picked out, colors chosen, photographers, wedding rings chosen, both the church and reception venue booked, and ideas for music, flowers, and food. I can do this in 6 months, right?

You can DEF do this in 6 months! You are well on your way! Just get yourself organized and keep plugging away–a little something every day! Just make sure to give yourself at least a day or two a week where you don’t have to do anything wedding related. It’s going to be an intense 6 months, and you’re going to need a little down time. CONGRATULATIONS!!

I’m July 10, 2010 also. So far I have a dress, venue, and officiant. My FH is doing the invitations since he is a graphic designer and we are doing DIY flowers. We still need to hire a phtographer.We are interviewing caterers right now. We are not having a bridal party and having a very short ceremony so that definitely cuts out on a lot of work I would need to do.
I know I am way behind schedule but we can do it!
