Hello! I am finally posting on this site after stalking it for about 4 months! My wedding date is 10.31, on Halloween but not Halloween themed. My fiance and I got engaged in Aug and I am now in full force planning!! Just figured I would introduce myself to everyone before I start posting all over!
Hi and congrats to all!!

YAY! Congratulations! We’ll be getting married the week before you. It feels too soon and so far away at the same time.

10/10 was our orginal date! But the venue we liked didn’t have it open but they did have Halloween and we both love Halloween so it kinda worked out! Congrats! 7 months is gonna hit us so fast!! 🙂

I’m getting married on Halloween too! A very vague halloween theme though, the only nod to it is our wedding colours are charcoal and red.

My date is Halloween too! We originally wanted the 17th but, like you, the venue was booked but had Halloween open. We are going to give some subtle nods to Halloween but it will be far from Halloween themed.

Congrats to you as well! Welcome to the Bee!
I am an October bride as well! We originally planned on getting married in 2017 so I could have my “dream wedding”, but couldn’t wait that long so we are throwing something together, big fancy wedding be damned! (Although I have slight envy for you bees that had/planning a big, beautiful wedding.) We are thinking either the 10th or the 17th!
Quick question, what do all you brides have done so far?

I am with you ladies, it’s on Halloween but not Halloween themed my main colors are purple and gold but I am also throwing in orange and reds here and there. The nods to Halloween are some white pumpkins being used in decor and were doing a trick or treat bar but thats about it.<br /><br />I haven’t done much! I do have some big things out of the way though. I am DIYing my invites so I have the design for the whole invite suite done just need to order paper products…
-dj and video booked
-FINALLY got my dress!! 🙂
-flowers are done because my mom and aunt are doing them. (my family owned a flowershop)
-guest list is 99% done
I need to order my STDs, I am having SUCH a hard time decided what I want to do for them 🙁 it’s becoming way more stressful than it needs to be.
Next up is booking our caterer working on setting appointments now. The biggest problem for me is my wedding is in Wilmington DE and I live 2 hours away, so working with the vendors is hard for me. Wilmington just happened to be a great place for my family and Fiance. We have people coming from NJ, PA, MD and across the country…crazy.
What do you guys have done? Make me feel better in my procrastination

October 17th bride here. We have booked the venue and the officiant. Last week we chose the save the dates and invitation suite from an etsy seller. Tomorrow I will get measured and order my dress. The dress has been the most stressful because I love every dress though most don’t do a thing for me. We have our rings purchased and almost paid off. We still need a photographer and music. We know what we would like to serve but need to check the budget,
Congrats on your upcoming wedding and welcome to the bee.
