  • Wedding: October 2013

i got engaged a week ago and we’re hoping for an oct wedding but we have done NOTHING virtually. We are planning to meet with the venue this week to secure a date and have started working on the guestlist. Once the venue is booked I’m going to design stds with a friend of mine who is an amazing artist and hopefully get those out asap since we have people coming from all over!

that is my primary focus for the moment. Oh, and we’re going to visit the jeweler he used today so they can see the ring on and to look at bands, so there’s that.


We are not having a ceremony or bridal party so that will cut out a lot, we hope! Eeek!

@eraff32:   Thanks so much!! we’re planning a small courthouse ceremony during the day then a heavy lunch with family after that, a couple of hours to take pics (and maybe get my makeup and hair retouched, depending) and then heading on to a cocktail/hors d’oeuvres reception. We are really crossing our fingers for the venue- its not actually a venue but is a really popular bar/restaurant that we both love. They have an event room but they also rent out the whole restaurant with open bar included and they offer an awesome passed hors d’oeuvre and stationary snacks situation, plus we are allowed to bring in outside food if we want something they dont make (like our wedding pies!)

We’ve been emailing with them since we returned from our engagementpocalypse vacation in canada, and they seem really excited and didn’t seem to have a problem with the date we wanted so I’m really excited.

We’ve eliminated a lot of “wedding-y” things like the ceremony and the bridal party, and we won’t have a dj or sit-down dinner so I think it’s really going to simplify things.  My Fiance is kind of chomping at the bit- when he suggested the date I asked if he was sure he didn’t want to wait longer and his eloquent response was “I proposed because I want to freaking marry you, not because I want to be engaged for 2 years.” So i guess we better get a move on!

@eraff32:  We are hoping for 10/12/13 🙂  We both like the sound of it and its a good weekend that doesnt have a birthday!

We’re also not having a honeymoon per say as we both are doing a lot of traveling this year already and we really want to take a trip to Asia, which requires a long chunk of time. Hopefully in 2014 we can make the trip!

@eraff32:  I’ve got venue, caterer, planner, photographer, dress, groomsmen’s attire, rehearsal dinner, cake, and the majority of decorations done.  I’m currently on the hunt for bridesmaid’s gowns and awaiting the quote on my wedding band.  Fiance is in a band and the guys agreed to get a temp drummer for the day to play the wedding as a gift.  I’m not sure how much more I have to do.  I know I’ve got to schedule my engagement photos, but we aren’t sure what we want yet, and I’m loosing weight so that’ll help too.
