YAY! So many others next July!
This is my 1st post, and I will be a 07/09/11 Bride!
Engaged July 16th last month and so far have venue/date booked, photographer, caterer. I would really like to get music sorted out (ideally a band, but maybe dj) and then I will relax for a bit with the biggies out of the way.
Beyond that….I know more of what I don’t want, than what I do want!
Not doing STD’s, doing early invites for FI’s fam as they are in Nova Scotia (to the two posters who I read are from there, he is from Antigonish!) so they have lots of planning time and less paper usage! We plan to take them home with us at Christmas, then give them to my side in Ontario shortly after.
No idea on colours….I see people picking two…is this what I should be thinking? How many is “normal”?
No idea on what I would like for a dress, I have a bit of “skinny fat” as I like to call it going on right now and am not allowing myself to dress shop until I am happier with my body. We just got a house, and a puppy, so my keeping in shape regime has been kicked to the curb!
We know wedding party (5 on each side), but I am waiting until Christmas to tell my girls (when I will see 2 of them in person again, and I don’t think it’s fair to tell the others until they can all know). However, Maid/Matron of Honor will know soon (my sister). Fiance has already asked his Bridesmaid or Best Man and 2 brothers.
Venue is very DIY, down to us having to rent tables, chairs, and bring in absolutely everything. I plan events for my employer so none of this scares me, just a matter of staying organized and on top of things!!
Anyone thought of first dance songs?
I am very excited for all of us! We originally thought July 2nd to use the long weekend for out of province guests to travel, but with Fiance being a teacher thought it would be better to have some extra time after school year wraps up….July 2nd would have meant school over Wed, wedding Saturday, this give him and extra week and a chance to spend more time with any family that comes in early!
I have a very broken family, and am struggling with being traditional, versus going with my comfort zone, but then wanting to be quietly different with some aspects of the wedding as well!
Can’t wait to keep hearing about all of our planning stages 🙂
