For some reason I’ve been in hardcore bridebrain mode the past few days and I just stumbled across this board!! I’m a 6.20.15 bride and I CANNOT WAIT!! My lovely fiance and I got engaged on 5.31.14 after almost 6 years together & living together about a year and a half. 6.20 was actually the only day left between March and August at the venue I liked best. I jumped into the planning right away trying to get everything I possibly could done ASAP just to be done with it lol! So far I have:
-Church for ceremony
-Venue for reception (it’s a cc, so catering is taken care of, including all food for cocktail hour, obvi the main meal, open bar for all 5 hours, and the cake!!)
– Hotel (The hotel is actually the venue I went to look at but they show you the country club too if you want b/c they own it, it’s right down the street, and I fell in love with the cc)
– There is a complimentary shuttle from the hotel to the cc every 1/2 hour, which is amazing and means I don’t have to get a shuttle.
-Photographer booked and e-shoot done
-Singer for ceremony booked
-Makeup artist booked to come to the house morning of
-Hair stylist also coming to the house
-Dress ordered but not in yet, poofy underthing for the skirt, bra, & veil came in last weekend!
-Bridesmaid dresses ordered
-I just ordered 3 pairs of shoes lol they should all be in Friday and I’ll have to choose 1!
-Guest list done & my DIY save the dates have been ready for months lol but I’m not sending them until prob January.
– In my wedding mode yesterday (when ordering all the shoes) I ordered a cake topper & a garter
-I’m not a huge fan of flowers but I am crafty so I’m making the bouquets for me and the ladies, but I’m doing just babys breath centerpieces and painted all my mason jars that I’ve been hoarding.. not a huge mason jar fan but they’re easy and they’re free after you use the sauce 😉 I couldn’t bring myself to spring for flowers when I can just order what I want and do what I want with them instead of blowing like $5grand
Now that it’s getting freezing here in Philly, I’ll totally be researching honeymoon spots and daydreaming lol!
