Has anyone had to pay huge deposits yet? Our 50% deposit is due at the reception venue in 3 weeks, and I’ve never ever written a check so big in my life.

I’m September 3, but I hang out with you guys because all of the September 3 threads seem to fizzle to a sad death.

We’re mailing most of our invitations today! Still waiting on about 20 addresses, but they are all his parents’ guests, and none of their close friends/family, so nobody will think they haven’t been invited because so-and-so already got their invitation. (We could get in a discussion about inviting long-lost friends whose names you don’t even know, but… been there, done that.)

So I know invitations aren’t usually sent until 2 months prior, but we didn’t do save-the-dates, and it’s a holiday weekend so we want to get information out as soon as we can.

Our engagement photos are this Sunday! Can’t wait.

@Mrs.Oat: oooh I am september 3rd too! I also want to try to get my invites out as soon as possible but I don’t really want to send them until after my cousins wedding (June 11th) because I really don’t want to even almost seem like I am stealing the spotlight.

@cyndistar3: That’s thoughtful of you! I think 3-ish months is still good enough, especially if many of your guests are local. Almost 75% of our guests live at least a 6-hour drive away, so that’s why we are trying to get this done early. (I was still later than I wanted to be… my mom’s been asking where the invites are since late March.)

@pengoala Well, we’ve got our ceremony and reception places, my dress (anxiously waiting for it to arrive at the bridal store!! eeek!), booked a photobooth! Laughing And that’s about it.

Still need:

1. Photographer (haven’t even taken engagement pics! Frown

2. Finish wording and send out invites

3. Limo

And those are just a few of the big things to take care of still lol
