So excited to find this board, it’s nice to have people to discuss ideas with!

When did you get engaged? May 22, 2011 

When is your wedding? Friday October 12, 2012

What state or country is your wedding in? Hamilton, Ontario 

What are your wedding colors? White, black and plum

What is your wedding theme? Elegant Autumn…we’re using lots of fall leaves decor, we have a warm apple cider signature drink and a campfire smores station on our late night buffet! 

How many people are you expecting? 125

How large is your bridal party? 5 girls, 5 guys and one flowergirl 

Did you find your dress? Yes, the very first one I tried on! I love it, and as a plus sized bride I thought for sure this process would be long and painful…I’ve never loved a dress more! 

What do you need help finding or doing?  Most of the details are taken care of, it’s more the timing of events that I’m having trouble with.

Are you a DIY bride? For everything I can-favors, moneybox, decor, programs, seating chart-the basics.  But it’s more of a “I need to save as much money as possible” thing-I’m actually not that crafty. But most of my projects have actually turned out well so far-I’m very excited!

When did you get engaged? January 2012 

When is your wedding? October 20, 2012

What state or country is your wedding in? Virginia

What are your wedding colors? Claret

What is your wedding theme? Hearts (that is about as much of a “theme” as we have!)

How many people are you expecting? A lot…finals numbers TBD

How large is your bridal party? 4 girls, 4 guys (including Maid/Matron of Honor and BM)

Did you find your dress? Yes. I bought the first one I tried on.

What do you need help finding or doing? Invitations; flowers. I am feeling very behind and trying to buckle down and cross some more things off my To Do list.

Are you a DIY bride? No, not at all! I am kind of a wannabee crafter…I keep thinking that some DIY touches would really enhance our wedding, but I need to take care of the big stuff first. Invitations are currently my biggest stressor, partly because we are still finalizing our guest list.

@actime: Yes, it has been the biggest headache! I’m hoping we can finalize numbers in the next week…need to get all “interested parties” to confirm their lists.
