We got engaged Christmas night (technically the morning of the 26th, but pfft). We're planning on May 14, 2011, but may have to move it to June - a bunch of sites around here are already booked for May of next year.

Are any of y'all worried that you might pick something now but then change your mind about it down the road? I know just from looking at dresses, I found some that I loved a month ago but now hate. Maybe it's just me.

We have a venue we absolutely love--now we're just waiting to figure out if we can really afford it.

We also got engaged on Christmas Day and are planning our wedding for April 2011. I have already done most of the planning....at least I have booked the major vendors (photographer, videographer, reception/ceremony site). I have found that I have to stay organized so I can get everything done. Also, April seems to be a popular month and people are already booking the vendors so I wanted to make sure I got the ones I wanted!

Initially, we set our date to be in 2012. However, we have been discussing moving our date to april/may 2011. He is in the Navy so I am having a hard time setting a date. I am afraid to to wait until 2012 because what if he gets put on a ship for deployment? But I also run into the same thing with 2011. I am not sure when he will be home on leave. Im learning how truely hard it is to plan a wedding around the military!! Anyone else out there know what I'm going through with a military wedding? How did you plan a wedding around all of the obstacles?

Got engaged 3 weeks ago, and we are shooting for May 2011. Hoping to find a venue for May 8th, if not then May 1st. Starting to get ideas of what I want for my wedding...I really never though about it until I got engaged. I am thinking of having ivory and white as the colors with accents of soft green and blue (we are getting married in Florida, not far from the ocean).

Engaged 4/15/2010

YES! So excited! Date- May 21st 2011. We have booked the venue 2 wks ago and have worked with the wedding planner on the budget so that we can have the bulk of it paid for by the time income taxes come in. Yes we have already hired a wedding planner..did i mention we are so excited?

We were officially engaged last Summer, and did a civil wedding Christmas Eve of last year. We have finally decided on May 14, 2011 for the religious wedding which will be held in Cyprus (where we now live). I found and purchased the dress in Florida. The venue is booked, the colors are robins egg blue, espresso, and mocha, and the church is booked. Since it's a destination wedding we have purchased the save-the-dates, they should arrive this week. It is an attempted vineyard theme but how it'll work with the colors I'm not sure...we'll see. Oh we have also purchased the favors and a few other odds and ends for the reception. I'm not sure if there is anything left lol. The hardest part will be getting everyone to dish out a couple thousand.

How is everyone else coming along?

I've never been to a wedding on a Monday. Is this a date that means something to you and your fiance? I'm just wondering about guests. I know it's a lot cheaper. Let me know how it turns out. Cause I am interested.

Start big (venues) and everything will be a little easier!
I tried to do everything at once due to lack of patience and it is too stressful. We got engaged Easter this year and our date is May 27th 2011. I started planning right away and just ended a three month break from it for school. So far I have:
Booked photographer (Collin Richie) and paid in full
Booked reception venue (includes catering) and paid in full
Made initial guest list
Booked Honeymoon
Hired for cake, invites, DJ, flowers
Bought and paid for dress
Booked church
Picked out colors, flowers, cakes, BM dresses, invite design
Have not done:
ceremony music
rings
Save the dates
and some small details
But I am in college and dont allow myself to plan during semester cuz I CAN'T STOP! and I will fail Lol
