Hello to all,
I am another June 25, 2011 Bride
We got engaged July 19, 2009 and I always told him that whenever I did get engaged, I would like to be engaged for at least a whole year to plan so that things wouldn’t be so stressful.
So far we have set our budget, made a binder to keep everything organized, found a wedding planner to keep me sane ( my aunt), hired a caterer (my step mom), reserved the ceremony and reception venues, found a photographer (one of my fiance’s friends), and that’s about it….I think!!!
My favorite color is green so I would like to stick with a shade of green. We are leanding towards off white, lemongrass, and black. I love the black and white damask print so I am obsessed with that right now.
As far is bridesmaids dresses…I have no clue
My dress…I know the style I want and I seen a dress that I really love, but I just have to find it close to where I live. The closest they have it is Texas so I might have to take a trip there (only 4 hours away)
Some say its too early to be planning, but I think time is flying by!!!

Yay for June 25! You are way ahead of the game… I know (almost) everything I want, there’s just the part of ordering/booking. I want to make sure I don’t change my mind!

I think June 25, 2011 is the most perfect date! I have already been engaged over a year and am itching to get started. I am planning on doing as much DIY as I can and love finding great deals (like $7 unity candle holders and $8 clutch flowers). Making my open flowers from crepe paper and making/designing my own centerpieces! Wow I hope I finish in time! When are going planning on dress shopping? When should we buy? Any great ideas?

you’ve still got time to find a dress. they usually take about 7-9 months to come in after you order them. just make sure to allow for enough time for alterations once it comes in. driving 4 hours to try on a dress isn’t bad! i think drove almost 3 hours to try on a specific dress. once i got there, i found one i loved even more! im finding myself slightly jealous of you! lol! my wedding is june 26, 2010 which means i have less than 6 months and i keep finding myself wishing i had a little bit more time for all the planning. lol! good luck!!!

Wow… So, June must be very popular for weddings… (I’ve never thought of another month to get married, I just love the early summer!) We are meeting, (and probably booking,) our photographer/videographer this weekend! I can’t believe it because I was planning to get everything booked this summer – I thought a year out would be good enough! Apparently not, I called a venue, and they already had a wedding booked!! I can’t believe that! So… I better figure out what I want, and quick!!

Whoop Whoop! Yeah for June 25th! So ready to get everything set in stone! Found the dress (went to “just look” and fell in love with the second dress I tried on), but having the hardest time to finding a ceremony/ reception site, indoors, same location that fits into our budget and my FI’s stingy checklist of “must haves”. Hopefully we will find the perfect place before someone else snatches it up!

June 25 2011 is by far my favorite date!! 🙂
I may be jumping the gun.. we have our reception/ceremony site booked, just ordered my save the dates, working on invites, bought a dress, made my veil, have a cake topper!
My only fear is that I will run out of space to put all my DYI projects!!

Hi everyone! This is my very first post.
I’m getting married on June, 25 2011 too! I thought the date was perfect because there is a gorgeous rose garden near my reception site and by late June everything should be in full bloom. I’ve always wanted to get my pictures taken with all of the beautiful roses and now my wish is coming true! The waiting begins…

Hi girls! We just set our date for June 25, 2011 on Saturday, yay! We’ve already done quite a bit of planning for decor & style of the wedding and we have outlined all our DIY projects. We pretty much have a venue picked out but haven’t put the deposit down yet. I’m excited to start trying on dresses this summer.
