Although, after long consideration, we are not getting married until 2012, I am already getting organized and trying to see what feels right for this big day. Since getting engaged, I have looked at over 15 different venues, and I am pleased that I may have found the “one”!! Steamwhistle Brewery is a wonderful location for our wedding, not only because it is rustic and simple, but because we live the beer!! After trying to find a place, the bells went off and it just mde sense. On Tuesday we have a tour of the location and we will learn more about having our ceremony and reception at this great spot!!

You are my first month twin! We have also chosen Oct 6, 2012 for our big day. We’ve only been engaged for about a week now, but I am eager to get planning and happy to hear you have started as well. A brewery sounds like a really cool places for a wedding, would it be the first wedding there or is it something they have done before? Good luck!

Yay!! We just got engaged on Friday (eek!) but for a long time we’ve been discussing Oct 2012. Last night we chose 10/20/12 as our preferred date – of course we haven’t even begun contacting venues yet, but that will be our ideal date. Yay for month twins!!

Have you all thought about themes and colours for your weddings yet? I was thinking an autumn theme: green bridesmaid dresses, orange, red and yellow flowers etc. Would love to hear what you are all thinking.

For colors/theme I am leaning towards a lot of graphically bold black and white with jewel tone accents – deep blues/purples/reds/oranges/greens. I’m leaning away from doing a defined color palette. I don’t want anything about it to look or feel matchy-matchy. But of course, at this point the most I’ve accomplished is picking out a handful of venues to go check out when I am in CA in February – we live in Chicago but all of our family is in CA, so we’re going to get married there. Looking at Sonoma, Big Sur, Santa Cruz, and SF all as possibilities!
Would love to hear more about where you’re all from/planning on marrying, etc!

That sounds like an awesome place to get married!! I got engaged 2 weeks ago and I’ve already started looking into everything. We are going to look at some venues this weekend. Hopefully we find a place we love soon. I think it will help make everything else a lot easier.
