Jan and i recently got engaged (yay!) and for the most part, wedding planning has been very exciting. he popped the question on october 23 and already we have:
*picked our date (9.4.11)
*secured our venue (founders hall, roswell, ga)
*chosen our bridal party
*had our cake and food tasting (most importantly for jan, choosing his grooms cake)
*met with a florist
*taken engagement photos
*ordered save the dates
* Buy the hammered mens wedding band
*made and edited the guest list (which im sure will include more revisions)
I have also found a bridal company, allure bridals, which I love. They make the most beautiful gowns. Here is my dream dress by them:
Isn’t this such a gorgeous dress? The lace, the detail, the buttons …plus, it is only $972 (which is in my dress budget) from house of brides.
Am I getting too ahead of myself? I’m a planner by nature and I don’t want to be stressed out. We also have a tight budget, so shopping around for the best prices ahead of time makes the most sense.
Next up on our wedding planning agenda is to sort out the entertainment. We’ve been looking online at websites like this for inspiration. Our post reception is going to be a lively but classy affair, so we’re thinking of hiring a jazz group.
We are also in the process of hunting down a photographer for the big day. Some of our friends who live in New York recently got married and their photographer did a fantastic job. Check out her website to Learn more about this popular wedding photographer based in NYC.
I feel like September will be here before I know it. I still cant believe it is almost Christmas! Where do the months go?
