Hey all you May brides! We are planning a Maine wedding for May 30th. We have been engaged since February and it has gone by sooo fast. I can’t believe there are only 5 months until the big day! Our colors are black and white with accents of hot pink and Tiffany blue, we are going with the vintage Parisian feel, not over the top with the theme but there are accents of damask. My favorite part of the whole thing is my dress and my shoes. You see I am a shoe and purse fanatic, I pretty much need some sort of recovery program. I had my shoes and purse even before I had my dress, the shoes are hot pink strappy sandals (totally me) and my clutch is a damask print I got at Forever 21. Good Luck all, and happy planning!

I’m May 8th!  The only one so far I think – it’s a Friday.  Since we are doing a destination wedding, we sent out the STDs last summer and I’m designing/DIYing the invites now.  Venue, florist, cupcake maker are booked, we have friends/siblings doing photo and video.  I need to book hair and makeup soon.  I already have my dress, still need to get it altered and get accessories.  Need to figure out the groom’s and groomsmens’ attire.  The bridesmaids are picking out their own dresses, within certain parameters.  Need to work on favors and gifts for families and wedding party. 

 Anyone else May 8?  Anyone else doing a destination wedding?

5.16.09 is our wedding date in south east Michigan! So close already…where did the 18 months go that I had to plan! We still have so much to do,we haven’t booked groom or groomsmen attire, transportation, and I just began thinking about invites and we are DIY them. I’ve bought my dress, but still need accessories, haven’t thought about hair, make up, shoes, and I still have 3 bridesmaids that haven’t ordered their dress yet!! Ahh!Our colors are fushia, silver and black.

@Andrea143-I just sent my save the dates out this week for my wedding! No worries, I figure the people who really matter and want to be there already know when the wedding is!

@ Kristin25–We’re date twins and I’m also in SE Michigan.  Where’s your wedding taking place?  We’re having both our ceremony and reception at the Michigan Union in Ann Arbor.  Our colors are ivory, black and gold.

@ Andrea143-We are also DIYing our centerpieces.  I think your idea with the tiny vases scattered around is a great one!  We also have round tables, so that might be a good way to save some money, while still looking awesome.  My favorite flower is tulips, so I had to make sure I was going to be able to easily get them!

Mine’s the 17th too! I started sending save-the-dates last week, but am still collecting addresses so have two more left to send. Glad I’m not the only one who is so close! I designed them myself and got them printed through Moo.com b/c it’s the only place I could find that offered a minimum of less than 100/pack. (I only needed the pack of 60.) They are out of the U.K. and say they deliver way more slowly than they do. I was blown away by their quality and speed! I give them 5 stars! 

Now I am getting ready to order the paper for the invites since I have designed them myself and am printing and assembling them myself. Wish me luck! Yay May 2009 brides!

We just ordered our pocket folds to make our invites. ๐Ÿ™‚ DIY Brides! If you are remotely considering pocket folds to create your invites, check out http://www.cardsandpockets.com !! The company has incredible customer service and we couldn’t be happier!

I’m starting to work on Out of Town bag ideas and am looking for input. What kind of bag would you rather get, a paper gift bag that you could easily get rid of and pack the goodies if you wanted? Or a reusable canvas bag that you could carry again? 

Thanks for your help! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m a May 16, 09 bride- saw a few others on that date too!  We’re getting married in Tucson, AZ…have finalized the ceremony & reception locations and I’ve found a dress and sent save-the-dates out…feel like there is still so much left to do!
