  • Wedding: May 2011

*waves* Welcome! 🙂

We’re having a long engagement, so we’ve been slowly checking things off our list for a year already. We’ve been checking out photographers and have decided on one, so we will be booking him shortly!

How is your planning going? What is stressing you out?

Hi Ladies!

I’m a May 28th bride also!

Sorry to hear about your troubles Ms. Syditty.  Has anyone offered to help you?

I’ve been engaged since before Christmas so I have already gotten alot done.  We have our ceremony and reception venues, our photographer and DJ already booked.  I am a meeting planner professional and my work schedule is going to be crazy right around my wedding so I wanted to get things done ASAP.

I am doing ALOT by myself.  My fiance is a graphic designer and we have a design business together, so we have designed and will print all of our paper products.  It’s nice to have that out of the way, so all we have to do is update the wording.

I’m actually going dress shopping in two weeks and will have a makeup trial while I am out there.  I’m planning a Chicago wedding from DC, so really the only struggle I am having right now is figuring out how to arrange everything around certain trips out there.  Thankfully, my parents live in Chicago so they have been able to help out with things when needed.

I’m a May 28, 2011 bride too! 

We got engaged in October so we’ve had time to slowly cross some things off the list.

– Destination and resort picked (Playa del Carmen)
– Date / time confirmed
– Save-The-Date Cards sent out
– Dress bought

I know what the groom and the best man will wear but we haven’t bought the outfits yet. 

You mentioned resort…are you doing a destination wedding as well? In my planning I’ve found that to be easier, as you have far fewer things to choose from (just pick flowers, etc.)

At this time there is no time for me to even devote to our wedding on May 28, 2011!  I have a best friend getting married in Oct. and another having a baby, also in october.  I figure after October, it will be time to refocus and get details ironed out.  At this time we have the venue, the dress, the caterer picked and the cake maker picked.  Invitations are chosen but not printed of course 🙂 Talk to me again in a few months!!!  I am sure I will be a beautiful mess!!!

Hey ladies!

How are you all doing with planning?  I feel like this is a dead period for me planning wise.

I did all the big stuff early on and already have a head step on the smaller things.  I’m just waiting for the 4 month deadline to roll around to get back into the swing of things.

I’m a May 28th Bride too!! (Actually a May 27 AND May 28 bride – having two ceremonies).

We also had a long engagement and I am also feeling stressed since I was hoping to have a lot more done by now. The big things are booked like the venue, photographer, Dress, Wedding Planner….but still have a lot to do.

Feels like my wedding planner has been MIA – but we are all so busy.

I actually joke with my fiancee that I wish we had planned a wedding for this past summer instead, so we could just enjoy being married to each other at this point lol.

We are getting closer to the 8 month mark – I can’t believe how fast time has flown by!

Just set the date for our May 28th wedding.

Very short engagement but we’re going pretty simple.

Main thing I’m worried about at the moment is getting a photographer booked.

We already have a venue and quite a few details decided. Going dress shopping right after Christmas!

So excited!
