Mine is earlier september, but we are doing a vintage-ish outdoor wedding too!  Our colors are cobalt blue and yellow – we’ll be repurposing a lot of cobalt wine bottles as vases πŸ™‚

Your wedding colors and theme sounds lovely, as does the location!  We both really wish we had someone with land in our families that we could use for the wedding, but we found the next best thing – an outdoor venue with great food!  I absolutely love the bonfire idea.

I am getting married Sept 29, 2012 in South Bend, Indiana!

We are doing the Alfred Sung “Barcelona” color dresses for the bridesmaids. I am letting them pic there own top but the bottom of the dress are identical. 

We are using a traditional autumn pallete with a modern twist by adding the celedon green and some bronze or champagne color. The red will match the dresses better but this is the inspiration for my bouquet. 

 

Our venue is a old night club that got renovated into a wedding hall awhile back. It is very intimate, which was important for us since we are only having 150 -175 people. 

 

I am having a hard time deciding on centerpieces and how I am going to carry my modern/fall theme thoughout the recpetion but I have been dowloading pictures like crazy! I know I want to incorporate a lantern somehow but use the colors in my scheme versus the white. 

I put a deposit down on my dress yesterday but am having second thoughts. I went dress shopping with my sister when I visited her in Utah and there was a dress that made her cry. My mom didn’t care for it when she saw it in the pictures. I went with my mom back in South Bend and we found a dress that made her cry. I had tried on some that I liked with a bridesmaid but everyone else has said they think they are “too typical” and don’t suit my personality. I feel like I’m trying to juggle everyone expectations… so I’m putting it on the back burner right now.

We have selected our videographer, DJ, venue, rehearsal site and cateror. We blocked hotel rooms and I am working on our webite. We are sending save the dates in the next two weeks. Still have a lot of decisions to make but feel I have a good start with more than a year to go.

I am also getting hitched on sept 29, 2012!

We are having an outdoor ceremony, in the country, with a potluck and bonfire at night. For some, it will be a weekend long camping trip.

Our colors are burgandy, navy blue and forest green.

We are having a wiccan asatru handfasting and there will be a blood oathing. We are also planning on having live steel battles.

How’s that for interesting?

me too!!! (obviously…)

We’re getting married in Wilmington, DE in the ballroom at a country club. It’s a beautiful room with hardwood floors, lots of windows and tall ceilings. Very classic.

I’m having difficulty with the color scheme. For ages and ages (since my teens!) I always wanted my maids to wear dark purple. Once I started looking for dresses I also ended up liking a pinky-purple wine/sangria sort of color. I haven’t decided on the maid’s dresses yet (that’s another story…), but I went for my 1st floral appointment this weekend and ended up confused!

I thought a nice subdued palate of very very dark purple and white and touches of soft greenery would be nice- but now I don’t know πŸ™

 

I might post pictures of things when I get home… I could certainly use some opinions!

But so far I have: Church, Venue/catering, Photog, my dress!

i’m getting married the 29th too even though my name doesn’t say so (not sure how to fix that?)

we’re getting married in New Hampshire and having a country/classic wedding… classic for my parents who are helping us pay, country for us! πŸ™‚ 

So far we have the church, venue, dress, photographer, and flowers…my next big task is figuring out bridesmaid dresses and finding a good bakery for our wedding pies! πŸ™‚

Yay, I’m September 29th!

We aren’t really having a theme. We are getting married at an old gold coast mansion, which is an architectually interesting venue. We want to keep it simple to let it speak for itself. Part of the grounds of our venue has a planetarium, so we will be incorporating that a bit into the decor.

Our bridesmaids will be in coral (each choosing their own above the knee dress), and our groomsmen (and FI) will be in a grey suit with a coral tie.I know coral is not typically an “almost fall weather” color, but I think it echoes the colors of the venue.

This is a photo of the courtyard which is where the cocktail hour will be taking place. The reception will be in a big beautiful tent right outside the courtyard overlooking the Long Island Sound.

The reception will be tented (I’m repeating myself!) and everything in the tent will be white- all of the linens, plates, flowers, etc. We are looking into a “starry sky” type lighting system for the ceiling. Here is the tent:

@sunshine_kar:

We are planning on having the bridal party surround us(so that the cutting is not as easily visable to some of the guests) cutting our “venus mounds” and then clasping hands, before the handfasting ties go on. The wording is not complete yet. I am writing the entire ceremony(with some help from a few friends).

My man is part of a viking recon group and also has friends who are part of other reenactment groups that know how to fight with live steel. I don’t want to say too much more, cause I have bride-to-be friends who frequient boards like these and I want them to be surprised.

Yay for 9-29-12!  We are also doing a “rustic elegance” theme at the family farm, but so far our guests list is up to 450!

Our colors are copper, sage green, ivory/champange and black.  The bridesmaids are all picking their own black dress, any length.  Decor is old copper buckets with homemade wine and wild flowers with TONS of white twinkle lights and candles. 

Food is goinf to be pork, and squash…that’s all we figured out yet. 

As far as planning, we have the caterer, DJ, photog, transportation, church, photo booth, dress, DOC.  Flowers are my next big step…I am going fake for the people, but maybe real for the centerpieces?  Maybe no flowers and just candle and wine?  Any suggestions?

Hey there fellow Septemeber 29, 2012 bees! Less than a year away now!

My Fiance and I are from the South (me, Louisiana, him Arkansas), so we are so excited to be having a Southern style wedding in New Orleans.  We picked the Southern Oaks Plantation.  The ceremony will be on the front lawn under a lawn under a huge Oak tree and the reception will be inside the plantation in their grand ballroom.

I thought I was super on top of things and everyone freaks out when I tell them what I have done, but it’s mainly because I have a trial starting next week and I won’t even be able to think wedding for a couple of months.  So far we have: venue/ceremony (which includes catering, DJ, and some flowers), officiant, wedding dress, photographer, wedding cake, engagement pictures.

We still need: so much! but what comes to mind is: lodging, honeymoon, florist, invites, save the dates, decorations, favors, tuxes, transportation, and we have to plan the rehearsal dinner.  Phew.  If anyone has any advice for those, or where to have a rehearsal dinner in New Orleans, let me know!

I’m planning to go with a mardi gras theme and have the BM’s wear dark purple dresses and incorporate the green and yellow into flowers, decorations, etc, but I’m still working on that and am struggling with keeping it looking classy and not cheesy Mardi Gras.  Sadly, I’m planning this all the way from San Francisco and have zero time, so no real time for a lot of DIY πŸ™

Good Luck to everyone in their planning! we’re looking forward to our engagement party this weekend (also planned by us:) !
