October 2013 Weddings

October 5, 2013

So excited that we booked the place we loved the most and can't wait to have a fall wedding!!! Just checking into this forum to see where everyone else is at, planning-wise. I feel like there's so much to do, and we still have 13 months to do it!

  • Thanks Stina51286! I love that we're wedding twins! I got engaged last month, so I feel like I have a lot to catch up on. But I feel 1,000 times better that we have the venue and date booked. I think finding a church and hotels by the venue is next on our list, along with booking a DJ and photographer. I can't wait to look for dresses either! 

    When are you sending out your save the dates?

    I also see your doing a candy buffet - us too! I can't wait.
  • Wheres your venue if you dont mind me asking.  I am orginally from south jersey

    We are probably sending them out between November and January. I have tons of family that live out of state.

     

  • We are wedding twins too!!!!! Congrates on your wedding!!!
    I fell like I am so far behind now. I have everything picked out on paper but nothing booked as of yet. I do have the sample of my wedding programs done. I did them myself. I have made my own wedding planning binder too. I can't wait until I have put the deposit down on the venue. I have been following the time line on here so I thought I was on track.
  • @jerseychic24 - we're getting married at Snug Harbor in staten island. I'm from Jersey and my FI is from Long Island do it's a good middle ground for us.

    @stina - that sounds like a perfect time to send them out! 

    @mistyandgregg - congratualtions to you as well!! I think the best part is that you have a planing binder and a timeline. I felt 100% better after we secured the venue and the date, so I understand what you mean. But don't stress! I need to write down all my ideas on paper too, and get organized.
  • Thats my day too. I feel way behind i just did a job interview three weeks ago and am waiting to hear back on it. So i may be to square one again if we have to move. But i have a place picked out just need to book it after i find out about the job. A friend is a professional photographer so thats done. A family friend is doing the cake and flowers ( two differnt people) I have a shop intown thats going to do my alterations and bridesmaides dresses and tux rentals if we stay here. Thats it i relized today crap october is next month. Freaking out a bit. 
  • At Kelleywill - I think you are good! Looks like you have a lot done - I think the venue is the biggest part, so if you have to move and you already have a venue in mind, well done! Hope you got the job, btw! 

    Are any of you getting engagement pictures done? Or had them done? Just curious everyone's timing on that...
  • I am getting married that day too!  so excited even if I am older and its our second time around.  We are doing everything ourselves, so I have been buying alot of the decorations right now so I am not rushing around 6 weeks before the wedding trying to find them!  Fall decorations are all half off right now too so that is surely a bonus on the budget! 
  • Lorenaw, That's actually a great idea about buying fall decorations now! I have some fall, rustic centerpeices in mind, so it might be a good idea to buy things now or at the end of this fall. Thanks for the idea!
  • I am also getting married the 5th !!!!!!!! he pr,oposed the 15th of August. so far we have dress deposit paid,  deposit for reception and ceremony. Thats it lol i have to get some more done next week lol. Congrats to all October 5th brides!!!!!
  • Just checking in to see how all the October 5 brides are doing? On scheudle with everything, ahead, behind?? 

    Can't believe it's almost 8 months away! Time flies!
