I feel ya on the planning. My fiance and I were engaged on October 12, 2007 and we aren’t getting married until October 11, 2009. We have venue, caterer, dj, bakery, my dress, bridesmaid dresses, flower girl dresses, centerpieces, favors, invites (one designed, just have to make the rest), and much more that I can’t think of done. I was surprised how much we have been able to get done. I still have to do florist and officiant, though.

 I am so excited to see all the other month twins here. October will be here before we know it!!!

Wow, you both are on the ball. Seeing how we are sharing a weekend, I appear to be the slacker (an indecisive one at that). I am finding that in the COLOR world, I like too many!! And with 10 months to go, i feel that if i narrow it down now, I will just end up changing them…. help! =)

@hisMrs what colors did you opt for?

@hirsche – We changed our colors several times, but we decided OFFICIALLY on fern green and gold for our colors. There are going to be several white accents (such as the flowers) as well. Don’t worry if you don’t have as much done… I SWEAR the only reason I have a lot done is because of how long our engagement has been. πŸ™‚

Good luck on choosing your colors! That is definitely an exciting one.

Yay!  We’re getting married on 10/10/09 too!  Hard to forget, right?  We’re doing a very casual beachy/river thing and our colors are chocolate, pear and ivory, with a whole bunch of natural/neutral elements as well.  I have the venue booked, but it comes with a horribly unexperienced coordinator.  Scary.  I have friends doing hair, makeup and dj, so I was able to cross those off the list.  I feel behind in the photographer department though.  I actually emailed one that I found months ago and I’m biting my nails until I hear from him again.  I hope he doesn’t take a long weekend… I’ll be nervous the entire time!

btw… When you tell people your wedding date, to they ALWAYS say, "oh, why don’t you wait until 10/10/10?" C’mon, really people?

Good to see the Oct. brides are up and running again!

I am still working on my colors as well. Chocolate is in there but I also am liking a rusty/copper color…..hoping to make a decision soon.

Good luck!

I’m a 10/10/10 bride (the date just worked out like that, honestly). Our colors are apple green and chocolate brown, which I think is still a nice nod to our favorite season without being to theme-y. We’re not really theme people…

ALSO, I attended my first bridal expo this weekend and was pleasantly surprised to find a cake designer willing to work with me this far out from the wedding. I am so sick of hearing vendors tell me to contact them "closer to time". I would think they would want the business/word of mouth for the duration of the engagement???

I’m yet another 10-10-09 bride! Our colors are chocolate brown, sage/leaf green, wheat, and ivory. We have a forest/nature theme goin’.

Despite my fiance’s recent claim that we "don’t have a lot left to do", we really do. That being said, I’m pretty pleased with how far along we are.

I have my dress, shoes & jewelry. I’ve selected my photographer, and we have a deposit down on our ceremony/reception venue. The 2 bridesmaids are each going to pick their own chocolate brown knee-length dresses so I don’t need to worry about that one, other than maybe going shopping with them when they’re in town, should they desire my company. My sister’s making our favors – we just have to do a taste-test when she’s in town later this month to decide what kind of truffles we’re doing. Also, we’ve gone to one cake consultation so far.

Hi October brides! I have a question…I’m October 11, which is a Sunday, but on the holiday weekend. I’m now panicked that people aren’t going to want to dance/stay late because it’s a Sunday, even if they have Monday off…what do you guys think? Thanks!

I’m October 11th as well. Since most people do not have Columbus Day off, we are assuming that  people will take off pretty early. I think we are having our reception end at about 9:30 or 10. That way, my hubby and I can enjoy our first night together too. πŸ™‚ Good luck with planning! πŸ™‚
