Im not an October bride but your colors are similar to what I am doing- ie: deep plum or sangria colored dresses and gold accents! We are also doing deep green and bronze in there and some red. Sounds odd with all the colors but it looks similar to these inspirations!

Youre doing so well so far, just enjoy the planning time and being engaged!! Its going to be beautiful and Im so glad your grandfather will get to take part in enjoying your day as well!!

@78h2o:

Hi! Just wanted to say we are date twins! πŸ™‚ Hope everything turns out wonderfully! I’ve only been planning since March and I feel like that was short so I can imagine you feel a bit overwhelmed!

Hello and welcome! Congrats on your October wedding. Our date is that same weekend. πŸ™‚ I will tell you that for bridesmaid dresses, it’s probably too late to order them from a bridal store. Off the rack is fine, of course, but you may find it difficult to find anything in eggplant. It’s one of my colors, and the one I really wanted for my Maid/Matron of Honor. However it’s really hard to find that color in stores. Ann Taylor and J Crew both have a wine color that comes somewhat close.

You are way more courageous then I am! I am also using dark purple as my main color but I’m using accents of burnt orange and deep red. I really like the dark purple, gold, and dark green combo! And I lovelovelove the first dress you posted!

@78h2o: I think we’re going to The Getdown for my bach party. It’s a dance club in Baltimore. We’ll probably do dinner before. You could try PBR in Powerplant. You don’t have to drink but there’s a mechanical bull you can ride. Also, there’s a Pirate Cruise that goes around the Harbor that is really fun! You play games and people can bring alcohol on if they want. For my friend’s bach party we’re going to Dick’s Last Resort at the Harbor which is completely different from any restaurant I’ve been to. Just some ideas!

Baltimore bach ideas: Cooking class (Tersiguels in Ellicott City and Cafe de paris in Columbia offer them, and there are ones done through the community colleges and private p[laces, too), Let’s Dish, spa time (Spa of the Valley is wonderful. their relaxation pool is heaven!), vineyard hopping (marylandwine.com has several different wine trails), tubing or canoeing on the Potomac(early september is a good time of year, riverriders.com out of Harpers Ferry is a good choice), Orioles or Ravens game (I really wanted to do a Ravens game, but it looked too expensive for my crew),  weekend roadtrip to Rehobeth for outlet shopping, a weekend at a Deep Creek Lake house, a day in St Michaels with a sail on the Selina II, DC roadtrip to go to the zoo and/or museums. Need more ideas? i am sure I can come up with a few. πŸ™‚ 

I would stay away from riding the bull, unless you are okay with strangers recording you on their cell phone cameras during your ride, and possibly ending up on YouTube or some creeper’s private collection. Think about it.

@78h2o:  I used to be an activity director, and I always had to buy cakes for birthday parties-I like Winco cake best.  Their sheet cakes are around $18.00-so a bit less expensive than anywhere else, and we have a Costco where I live, their cakes are pretty good too.  I know an officiant, photographer if you still need them PM me and I can give you names.

YAY date twin!! If you’re doing it in 3 months you’ll want to get kickin’ on many things. Good thing all your maid’s have their dresses ordered! I like the color scheme, very fall-ish. I don’t live anywhere near you but if you need any help as far as where I’m at in the process or what’s next please feel free to ask!

Some things to think about soon… Shower (if you’re having one), your dress!!, venue, food, favors, ceremony, guests, invites.
