@JJBelle:  That is a genius idea! Maybe I can satisfy his craving for something urban and cold with a quick weekend getaway, and then we can do something longer for me. 

I’m really into the British Virgin Islands. I think I can convince him …

I guess I can post here now too. We just moved our Sept 2014 wedding up to May. Luckily all of our venors were able to move, except hair/makeup, so we’re pretty good. 

I still need to order bridesmaids dresses, contact the officiant, re-order invites, order rings, and find new hair/makeup. I’ll probably also need to find a new dress because I’ll be about 6 months pregnant….  Feeling pretty good about the switch right now though.

@CoCoCourtney:  Welcome!

Fiance and I are supposed to be taking engagement pictures this Saturday. I still haven’t heard from our photographers about a place or a specific time (we just know before noon), so that’s kinda frustrating. But we will be doing an informal cake tasting this Saturday 🙂 We have gotten cupcakes from this place before, so everything should still be tasty.

@BreezyBride24:  Well, I wanted to take pictures at this one place but since it’s apart of the park district here, we would have to apply for a permit. It’s 70.00 and takes around 2 weeks to approve. I just heard back from our photographers, so unfortunately it’s a bit too late for us to apply for a permit…and I am a bit miffed. Fiance and I are open to anywhere. We don’t have a “place” since we are long distance, which makes it harder.

We finally have our engagement photo session booked, now we just have to plan outfits and locations.

We’re going to do a food/bev tasting at our venue in a couple weeks, as well.

@BreezyBride24:  I’m pretty type A…so this whole uncertainty thing is really grinding my gears haha. If we go a bit more dressy, I’ll wear a red wrap top with a black skirt with tights and flats. If it’s a bit more casual, I’ll probably wear the same top with jeans.

My friend is doing our invites based on a design that we love on another site, but it’s way too much money for us. Thank God for graphic designer friends 🙂
