YAY! So exciting!! We’re getting married May 26, 2013, too! AND it’s the day before my birthday so I am thrilled! We have the venue, caterer, dress, photographer, and stationary supplier picked so far! Hoping to solidify the DJ within the next few weeks. And we’ll get our engagement photos done this month! We got engaged on Thanksgiving last year 🙂 Its moving so fast already!

Yay! I can finally read this thread and not get frantic that all the venues for this date are already booked (we are jewish and pretty much have to get married on a sunday, so that monday off is CRUCIAL!)…we are going tomorrow to put a deposit on our venue for May 26th…yay!

the normal sunday rate for the package we chose is $97, but the caterer made a mistake and quoted us this price and then realized this weekend is a “mega holiday” weekend so they charge more…it brought the price up to $131!

That sticks that the price got jacked up. We were lucky and our venue honors the regular Sunday prices and free uplighting package! That pretty much sealed the deal for us after falling in love with it during the tour.
We have our venue, my wedding band, DJ, photographer, STD’s here and addressed waiting for postage, and have planned to do our own flowers (for now…)

Ceremony site has been booked (for over a year now!), dress has been bought and just needs to be hemmed and bustled, reception venues have been contacted and we’ll be meeting with several on Tuesday and Wednesday. Photographers have also been booked. STDs will be sent out once we get our engagement photos, and invites from Michaels have been chosen.
So the big $$$ are going to be out of the way by next Saturday so my bank account can recoup for a few months before I start looking at cakes and flowers! And then I’ll get Fiance a custom made suit next January. 🙂

Oh yes…this is our date. We have so much done so far. With a 2+ year engagement, there has been nothing but time with booking vendors. All the major things are taken care of. We were lucky to find a wedding center where we were able to get almost everything under one roof. We were able to book the photographer, vidoegrapher, limo, bouquets, DJ, invitations, engagement shoot all in one package. This took so much stress out of the planning and wer have been paying it off since last June. I also brought my dress 2 months ago and have been working on the details of the program, menus, cardboxes, engagement photo props among other things.

Just bought my dress this past weekend!! It’s the Alfred Angelo original Cinderella, the bottom has a sparkle underlay (?) so it’s very shimmery which isn’t seen in this picture!
