@Dub D: I think you have plenty of time!

You should really be thinking of the venue right now to make sure it is available for that day.

My date is May 26, 2013!  I got engaged over Thanksgiving break (I’m a college student), and over Christmas break we booked the church, reception hall, and I found a dress!

So far, we’ve picked our colors, a city for the reception (our families are from all over), picked the wedding party, and have started looking for a specific location. I live in Raleigh, NC and we want to get married in the Myrtle Beach area. We are looking for a large beach house to hold the reception. We also bought invitation template kits from Michael’s. P.S.–Michael’s is having a sale this weekend and you can print a coupon for 25% off all items if you’re interested in the partial DIY option for invitations or save the dates.

me too!

 

I’m having a hard time making decisions about things, but we have a hold on a venue and our photographer is booked as well. I’ve gone dress shopping but it was so much fun I’m going to try to stretch it out as long as I can

 

Congrats 5/26/13 ladies!

I just booked my wedding for May 26, 2013!  So far we have the venue and caterer, but we only got engaged about 3 weeks ago.  I can’t wait to book the rest!

I found that some places charged a lot extra for choosing the Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend, but there were plenty (including our venue) that charge for a normal Sunday.

I’m getting married on the 26th too! We have a venue booked and caterer picked out but that’s all so far. I need to start looking for a photographer now so we can get engagement photos done. I really want to start planning all the little details, but it just seems too early–I’m afraid I’ll change my mind a million times before next year!

@badgerlove — Agreed about stretching out the dress shopping! I went with my mom a few weeks ago and it was great! 

 

When are you guys sending out Save the Dates? Is a year in advance too early?

@Peony526:  I have friends who travel a lot. I am getting married 5/26/13 and plan to send save the dates about 10 months in advance

I’m also a Sunday 26th bride. We got engaged in December 2010, got engagment photos done May 26th, 2011 and decided to have the wedding on the same day in 2013. I have been itching to plan my wedding for years though! We have ceremony and reception venues booked and I have found the dress. Waiting for May of this year to order it. Laughing I am also wondering about save the dates although we are looking at the 6 month mark to send them.

@Dub D:  I have my dress but it needs serious alterations. I am about to book my venue (they are sending a contract and I will send the deposit). Originally, we were going to have it in a friend’s backyard but the neighbor didn’t like the idea.

Right now, I am looking at invitation and save the date stationery.

I am a May 26, 2013 bride too!!  So excited.  We have booked our venue/caterer and have chosen and booked our photographer.  Next up is the officiants, flowers, and music.  As far as save the dates, I think we will send them out in June 2012.  It is a holiday weekend and we live on the Jersey Shore, so we want to make sure people keep that day open!!  

It seems like it is SO far away but I know that time will fly!

We are doing the 25th and all we have is a venue looks like I’m way behind
