My theme is a Victorian garden party! The colors are pale pastels. We are having Publix do the catering for soups, salads, sandwiches, tons of deserts, and other bites. I am doing my own flowers (I used to work in a flower shop) excpet my bouquet (I suck at them). Everything else is slowly coming together! I have my photographer, DJ, and hair and makeup girl.

I’m March 5, as we are going to Belize and the middle of the week seemed like the best option…. But it would have been the 8th had we had the wedding at home. So I’ll join The thread… Lol.

 

We have everything booked ( only 5 of us so not real hard to do), now i just need a dress and my bikini body back!!

Congrats to you all! I look forward to hearing all your planning details, since mine were so simple!!!

Eeeek almost at the 6 months mark!! I can’t believe how fast time is flying!

Do you think you are at a good planning place right now? I feel pretty good! We have a lot of the bigger things completed and now starting to think about the smaller detail-oriented type stuff.

When is everyone planning on sending out invites? I was originally thinking the beginning of January, but realized that doesn’t really give guests much time to send in their RSVPs. And I really didn’t want to mail them out in December. I’m afraid with all the Christmas card rush and such, the invites may go unnoticed in the mountains of mail. So we decided on the end of November. Going to look at invites at the end of the month!

Hello Bees ๐Ÿ™‚ . I’m A March 8th Bride too! I definitely feel like I’m getting more overwhelmed since the 5 month mark has been approaching! i have got my dress (I’m a Maggie bride too @mrstau733) and my bridesmaid dresses. We’ve also booked and paid for our ceremony and reception venues ๐Ÿ™‚ . Choosing a photographer and whether to have real or diy fabric flowers are proving our biggest stressed so far!! Good luck March brides ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m a March 8, 2014 bride too!  We picked that date b/c of my love of numerology lol.  It’s the 8th and the infinity symbol is a sideways 8.  Also, when you put your wedding bands together it looks like the # 8.  Yea I’m a numerology nerd lol.  Ryan & I have been together over 8 years and we have 2 daughters.  

We are getting married in Salem, MA which is about 2 hours away from our home.  We are having a weekend wedding experience with just close family & friends.  About 30 guests total.  We are having a vintage, dark romance wedding.  Lots of lace, pearls, deep red roses, candles.. SO EXCITED!!!!

@hillsab03:  I’m sure you’ll look beautiful in whatever size you order! I was so worried about sizing on my gown! But we just picked up mine a couple weeks ago and it fits perfectly with wiggle room in case my weight changes! ( I got a corset backed gown)

Hi Bees!

I’m a March 8th bride, too! Only 131 days to go!

So far we’ve booked the venue, photographer, florist, DJ. We just had our tasting on Tueday and we’re going to our cake tasting this Saturday.

We still haven’t decided on bridesmaids dresses or suits for the groomsmen, but Fiance and I have our gear – I don’t have any pics of me in the dress, though. I got it through Allegria in Belmont and it’s not due to come in until the end of January. I feel like that’s cutting it a bit close, but oh well! I do have a picture of the sash that goes with it. I love how unique it is and how it reminds me just enough of winter without being obvious:

I know who will be doing hair/makeup, but I’m not doing trials until January (as recommended by my hair stylist). We also still need to buy our actual wedding bands!!

We have the invites worded and picked out, but I’m so hesitant to actually order them because I’m missing a typo or something. But at least we have them picked out, right?

I feel like the planning has gotten pretty stagnant. All the big stuff has been decided, and all the little details can’t be done until I have a better idea of how many people are coming. 

So what do you think, am I missing something big? 

And just because everyone loves ring porn, here’s my ering (sorry it’s big, I don’t know how to resize here!):
