hahah at first i was like april bride without a dress?!?! (felt blood pressure rising) then i realized the year πŸ™‚ i think you have lots of time. we booked our venue (reception and ceremony sire/ caterer/ dj/ cake)/ photographer a year in advance. 

i bought my dress last month (4 months before wedding) – but I knew I was planning to get a sample so it was fine to wait. lots of people buy their dresses a year in advance but you should definitely go try some on in the store and definitely try the one you are planning to buy so you can make sure its the one πŸ™‚ happy planning!

If you know it’s your dress, then it’s okay to buy, I think.  If you have any questions, I’d hold off.  I found my dress already (March 2013) and bought it, but it was because I loved the dress, knew it was the one, and didn’t want to risk losing it.  I’ve also booked my venue and nothing else – so we’re right at the same spot!

Sweetie I got my dress before I even got the ring!!! LOL, Fiance proposed but he let me pick what ring I wanted. We just booked our venue last wkend and today we are booking our photo booth and our photographer (as soon as Fiance comes home). At first I thought I was taking things too fast until our original wedding date (April 6, 2013) was taken from us because someone else booked it before we did. So since then its been game on, lol!!! You want to get the good stuff before its taken! And by no means at all am I saying say goodbye to your budget. Around this time is when all the good deals are happening. We are getting our photo booth for $350 for 3 hrs and our photographer for $500 for 4 hrs. They are both excellent in quality! DO NOT sit around because you think its too early. The date will get here before you know it and you dont want to be piled under a bunch of to-dos before you say I do!

I am also an 4/13/13 bride (so weird to say that still!). The only thing we have is a venue! Have started research photographers, and have a meeting with a videographer this weekend, but that’s it! No idea on dresses, bridesmaid dress, etc. So don’t fret! I think we still have some time… πŸ™‚

I’m a 04/13/13 bride as well !!! Congrats to all of you !!!!  I am a bit more prepared than some – but we have been together for almost 9 years already and knew that we would be getting married soon so we started browsing about 6 months ago πŸ˜‰  I have my dress ( my mother in law to be bought it for me ! ), my venue is picked out and paid for, we decided on bridesmaids dresses today actually, our photographer is picked out, our tuxes are picked out, and I’m just starting my “real” guest list… lol…. We have not even talked about food, flowers, or decorations yet, but I think we have time to figure it out – those are kind of last minute things to us πŸ™‚  Have fun planning everyone !!!

@ccfwwedding:  Kudos to you for getting it done! I have my venue picked out, the officiant booked, a dress I love but hasn’t came in yet, FINALLY have a color scheme, and got the photobooth but we ended up not going with the photographer we originally found. Its been hard for us finding a photographer that has great quality, reasonable prices, and that we can trust and have a connection with. I’m on my 3rd photographer and we are supposed to be meeting this afternoon. I am so stressed about this.

Hi ladies! I just held a 4/13/13 date at my favorite venue (Studio 450 in NYC)…does anyone know of anything significant on this date that I might not have thought of?? It is probably just a coincidence but the first three venues I looked at had only April 13th left available for basically the entire spring…it is not a school holiday where I am, not a holiday for the major religions….I couldn’t imagine there are THAT many superstitious people out there?

I was planning April 6 but my reception venue doesn’t open the tent until the weekend after, which is a perfect spot for the cocktail hour. Lucky 13!

I’m 4/13/13 as well.  Still need a dress and haven’t given a thought to food or decorations!  Feeling a bit overwhelmed and more interested in planning the honeymoon.  Hopefully it will come together soon–I’ve always been a procrastinator!
