Is anyone getting married on the 27th?

I feel like I’m missing something big! I have both venues, caterer, photographer, photobooth, and dj, hm, registries, std, dress(might get another) and shoes. I’m meeting with a day of cordinator tomorrow. What am I missing?

Does anyone know where I can get weekender bags for Out of Town GUEST?  I need this under 25 bucks.

futuremrsrcb:  26th here! So I’ll still be celebrating on the 27th!

 

I’ve got most of the big stuff planned, just need photographer, florist, and to find out if my plan for cake is going to work out.  I’ve changed my colour scheme slightly from my original.  Now it’s teal blue, with copper, blush, peach and peacock accents.

I want to do small 6-8″ cakes for the centerpieces, but if we do that, then we won’t be taking the dessert that goes along with the meal at our venue.  If we aren’t taking that dessert, I want to see if we can get some kind of discount on an upgrade or something.  If we have to pay for dessert no matter what, then we’re going to eat it and not have a “wedding cake” at all.  If that happens, we are going to get beer glasses from Ikea and fill them with water pearls and carnations. 3 glasses per table, 4 carnations per glass.  Maybe with an LED tealight in each glass as well. So I need to get emailing our venue coordinator.

We go to pick out our table linens next Monday! I’m thinking that I want coppery/rose gold linens at the head table with a teal runner, and teal with copper runners for all the guest tables, but I’m gonna have to wait and see what they have for chair cover options.

At the wedding show I ‘won’ guestbook and cake table decor when I booked my consult, but they’re already included in my ‘all-inclusive’ package with my venue (it’s through this company) so I’m going to ask if I can have a head table backdrop instead.

Photographer we have narrowed down to 2. The one that I like better, and I think would be a better fit for us is the more expensive of the two (not by a huge amount, but the cheaper one is still going over our preferred budget by almost $300).  I think she said during our consultation that they do sometimes ‘price match’ if it’s for a similar package etc.  So I’m going to email her and ask.  Both photographers include a second shooter, an engagement session, and printing rights to all the photos.  The more expensive one is for 10 hrs, the cheaper is starting whenever I start in the morning until 10pm. 

I have a couple of recomendations for florists, and if we end up doing the floral centerpieces I’m very likely going to order the bulk carnations for them online and just get the florist to do the bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages.

A friend is doing makeup for any of the bridesmaids that want it, and maybe me, but I’m still struggling with my own anxiety about that (She does beautiful work, but I have weird control freak like tendencies when it comes to my face. My hair I couldn’t care less).  One of the groomsmen’s FI’s is a hairdresser, and she is going to do hair, along with one of her friends from hair school.  My bridesmaids have all finally chosen their dress styles, so now all that is left is to get everyone’s measurements in by the end of February.  We’ve decided on getting matching ties for the groomsmen from Dessy so they match the ladies, and Fiance has decided no vests. 

I tried on my dress last week and it’s a little better fitting than it was when I bought it, but my butt still needs to shrink a bit more! It’s been cleaned now, and the skirt seems much fluffier, so I don’t think that I’ll even need the hoopskirt that I bought added to it. I’m planning on a low pair of wedge heels from Davids Bridal.

 New stressor with the dress is deciding on a style of bustle! It has a one point overbustle from being at the salon (bought a sample) but I’m wondering if a French bustle would work/look better? I’m including a couple of pictures, neither is me, cause I forgot my phone when we went to the salon. One is the dress unbustled and one is a bride who had a french bustle.

Good Lord, that turned into more of a novel than it was meant to be.

chinwe:  that’s so funny. We’re most likely 28 September in Paris! So close! We’ve booked our flights and our planner. It should all fall into place quite quickly. I hope! That’s what planners are for, right?!

faljg2:  Yay I finally have a date twin! 212 days left! I gotta ask, why did you pick the 13th? We picked it because we wanted a September wedding (we started dating in September) and my grandparents anniversary is September 13th

We just set the date last week. We have the ceremony location and possibly the reception location and caterer. We were at Hobby Lobby and I bought my hair piece on sale for $4…lol
