I think that is so great that you are having your wedding on October 31st but not doing the Halloween thing – it’s unfortunate that the date is tied to Halloween, especially on years when it falls on a Saturday. What is your color scheme?

Sounds like you guys have everything covered – you have no idea how lucky you are to have all your vendors tied up with your reception location. I feel like I have a million people to coordinate for mine since all my vendors are coming from all over – and none are associated with each other.

I tried to be super prepared early on – so all of my necessities for the day are booked – reception hall, ceremony location (same place luckily!), rehearsal dinner location, invites, hair stylist, makeup artist, hotel accomodations (also same site as reception/ceremony), honeymoon, dress, shoes, jewelry, nail appointments for bridal party, groom & groomsmen suits, bridemaids dresses, shoes, and jewelry, wedding party gifts, DJ, ceremony musicians, offciant, florist…all of it! I am starting graduate school ONE month before my wedding (I’m crazy I know) so I tried hard to be prepared so I didn’t have too many loose ends the closer the big day got.

I hear you on your $ woes though – my FH is not very interested in most of the details that are super important to me, so I have been handling most of the financial end of things…a preview of what our marriage will be, I am sure. I am the more money saavy one of us, so it is fitting that I take care of it, but I feel like he has NO idea how much the wedding is costing..ours will probably end up in the realm of 20,000. Which I never thought was possible until I started doing the math. I really wanted to spend less – but as decisions were being made, I just refused to settle – we (hopefully!) only do this once!

I am pretty sure it will all be worth it. I am the first of 4 daughters to be married in my family, and my FH is the only son of the only son in his family – so it is a pretty monumental wedding for both sides. We kept it as small as possible with our big families (under 120). Just talking about it makes me so excited!

Thanks for letting me share! And good luck to you Princessforaday!

I’m an October bride, but not until 2010.  I just wanted to offer you my support!  I think the idea of letting the children wear costumes is really neat — and thoughtful!

We are a just a little behind you on the 17th-everything is doin except for these last items:

* final meeting with photographer *final meeting with pastor to confirm program *wrapping attendents gifts, parents gifts, etc. *writing letters for Out of Town bags & putting together Out of Town bags for the hotel *putting together the children’s bags for the rehearsal dinner & also for the reception *printing my programs *making & sending invites for the after party at a local Mexican restaurant *making & sending letters to the wedding party for the “less than two months to go” reminders *trial with hair stylist *dress alterations

Everything else is done! My soloist is having a hard time finding an arrangement for her 2nd solo (Yours, Mine and Ours for our unity candle ceremony in alto range)

My Wedding is October of 2010…and I can’t decide if I want to do an indoor or outdoor wedding here in New Mexico…


I have my reception place booked, but there is still so much to do. I’m glad I’m getting an early start on all of it because I’m taking my time and looking around. Does anyone have any suggestions about New Mexico weddings in October?
