  • Wedding: November 2012

Under five months to go! Guess I’d better introduce myself:

Town/State of Wedding Location: New York, New York

Wedding Date: 11/10/12

Colors/Theme: Eggplant, Ivory, Gold, Black. I love how many other November brides are using these colors – they really fit the time of year! No “theme” per se, but the wedding will be vaguely old-hollywood inspired.

Venue: Ceremony & reception in an event space in Manhattan

Describe the wedding in one sentence or less: Elegant superfun all-out party!

Favorite part of planning: Dress shopping πŸ™‚

Most-anticipated part of the day: Walking down the aisle, saying the vows, and walking back up the aisle as husband & wife.

Why November: We got engaged December 31, 2011, and wanted to get married in 2012. Any sooner would have been a bit of a stretch, and early November is usually (fingers crossed) pretty safe weather-wise.

One thing you aren’t looking forward to: Paying for it!!

  • Wedding: June 2013

Town/State of Wedding Location:  Ontario
Wedding Date:  November 17
Colors/Theme:  teal and various blues
Venue: a yacht club
Describe the wedding in one sentence or less: An elegant and fun party with all of our family and friends. 
Favorite part of planning: those ‘ah-ha!’ moments when a great idea just comes to me, and having an excuse to get crafty πŸ™‚
Most-anticipated part of the day: the moment right after we are pronounced husband and wife, when we get to beam at everyone and walk down the aisle, seconds-married, to some awesome, fun music that I have yet to pick out.

Why november: Because it was the earliest date that seemed reasonable and worked around our schedules. Plus I am so busy with school and have so much fun summery stuff I want to do, I just wouldn’t want my summer taken over by a wedding. And stuff’s cheaper off-season!

One thing you aren’t looking forward to: I suppose one thing being the center of attention all day…I don’t really like to be put on the spot and lord knows what kinds of awkward things my family members will decide they have to make a speech about.
