Our date is March 19th, 2011. Anybody else got a March 2011 wedding planned? I am so detail focused so I have started early! So far we have our location and caterer (they came hand in hand). I am looking for my dress at the moment and deciding on some DIYs to save some money. It looks like photography is going to be one of my most important (read: expensive) vendor choices. It is the most important thing for me on our day since I do some photography myself.
How far along are you bees?

12th 2011 is my fiance and my wedding date. I think it is so important to start early, although i have found most places dont like you to go in too early to start booking things…ie flowers and cake. We also have a vedor and caterer which went hand in hand as well. It is so much easier that way.
I am working on some pomander balls…ribbon ones and flower ones.
Good luck on your big day.

I was a March 12th, 2011 bride, but we had to move the wedding up one week because the venue we wanted was already booked! So I am now a March 5th, 2011 Bride!
So far we have our ceremony site and officiant. Just need to get back to reception site to sign the proposal for our reception which includes the catering. We’ve bought our invitations- our first diy.
I am still looking at a dress for myself, but I’m almost 100% on my girls dresses. My girls all received my cards asking them to be a Bridesmaid or Best Man too!
Our photographer is done too.

I’m getting married on March 12th, 2011 as well. I’m trying to take care of the vendors first. So far, we’ve booked the catering hall, church and band. I’d like to take care of the photographer/videographer and florist next.
I’ve also spent waay too much time online browsing for ideas, but haven’t started any projects yet.

Well march is almost a year away and I am so excited to be able to say that.
I’ve been told by some people that it is too early to start doing wedding things but hey, the sooner the better I think…less to worry about. 🙂

@Alyssamarie- I thought the same thing, but we actually had to change our wedding date because the original date we wanted (March 12, 2011) was already taken at the reception venue so we are are getting married on March 5, 2011.

My date is also March 5, 2011. In Ohio…I have quite a few people wondering, “Why March?!”, especially due to the unpredictable weather….no way of knowing if we’ll get a spring day or a winter day!
What are other March brides doing for colors/themes? I’d love ideas. I really like the idea of a very light blue (can work for spring or winter)….and I also love royal blue.
I need help to start planning this wedding!!! All I have is the chruch and hall. I’ve done wedding dress shopping, but I haven’t purchased one!

Congratulations to all the March 2011 brides 🙂
We are getting married on 03/31/11.
I have my dress and we have all of our vendors picked and confirmed, so now I am just concentrating on all of the DIY stuff and paying everyone. We are having an elegant romantic Victorian theme. Our main colors are white, black, gold, celedon, and pink.

We’ve been engaged for a year, and just picked out date. We live in New Mexico, are getting married in Oklahoma, and have nieces in Texas. We chose March 19 because that is the last Friday of their spring break, and so traveling won’t be a big problem for them (a summer wedding was out of the question for me…I hate the heat, and Oklahoma summers are BRUTAL!).
I haven’t really done much yet (other than spending hours on weddingbee). I’ll be visiting OK next week, and will be looking at venues then. I have picked out the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses (actually, I sent my sisters to the jcrew website and asked them to pick their favorite, and they actually independently picked the same one, so that was easy!).
It’s the first marriage for both of us, but we are older (I’m 39), and have been dating for 10 years and living together for 7 of those years, so we are planning a small, pretty informal wedding with only immediate family (about 30 people), so I’m hoping that a small wedding will equal low stress planning, but we’ll see!
We’ll have a party with our Albuquerque friends sometime next summer, but I can only plan one thing at a time.
I chose the jcrew clover green for the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. I’m thinking about doing silver and eggplant for my other colors, but I’m worried that eggplant will be too dark for the spring (any thoughts on that?).
Looking forward to watching everyone’s plans unfold.

Hi all! March 19th bride here! Congratulations to everyone, and let the countdown begin! (in a fun, exciting way- not in a “holy crap I have less than a year to do all of this” way!)
I’m so excited to have found the Wedding Bee and all of you who I will most definitely be bouncing ideas off of in the next year!

We are getting married March 17th (most likely, could move up or down a day or two) 2011.
Our wedding will be a pretty simple and small affair so normally I wouldn’t be doing so much at this stage BUT we are marrying in another state, doing all of this work from Texas, so in this case, I feel that it’s never too soon to start figuring things out.
What sucks is we don’t have any money yet for deposits and such, and because we are marrying in a very very small town I really do NEED to make some reservations ASAP.
Oh well. Doing what I can!

March 5, 2011 .bride here! Getting more excited each day. We are planning on black and white with green and possibly peacock accents. I think the green is good for the beginning of spring (I like to think of it that way instead of end of winter).
We have just booked our venue that comes with caterer, ceremony, officiant, DJ and photographer. Moving right along! And loving every minute of it (almost).
