- Wedding: November 2016
My fiance and I have moved our wedding up a year. We had originally planned it two years out because my older brother is getting married next June and I didn’t think my mom would want two weddings so close to each other, but we talked and she said as long as I don’t get married before my brother and wait at least a month after his wedding, it’s fine by her and we should do what we want.
So, instead of 7/29/2017, our wedding date is 8/6/2016 which gives me less than a year to plan, and I’m freaking out
My mom is expecting to invite at least 150 people (although I’m going to try to get that number down by a lot because I absolutely don’t want a wedding that big and can’t afford it so unless she’s putting the money down, it’s not happening), and I am looking at venues that can hold that many people and calling around tomorrow because things book up super fast…and I’m thinking I might have to do an outdoor reception which I don’t actually want.
I have my dress (we are ordering it either Friday or Sunday for sure), I have my church, we have our bridal party…but we don’t have Save-The-Date Cards or invitations or anything.
And to make things more complicated, I won’t have much time to do planning in the next 3 1/2 months because I’m in nursing school which pretty much means doing something for school 24/7, and until we move back to our hometown in January, it’ll be long distance planning.
