So far...we have a beautiful hall (under $500), a caterer (talented and reasonable), a cake maker (amazing), a photographer (a friend who takes beutiful pics) and a hair stylist for the bridal party (just 3 of us). Still need...a DJ, a string group (more a want, than a need), flowers (thinking of doing my own), someone to do makeup.
What am I missing? I have lots of time, but have never planned a wedding before. I do think it would be fun to start a support group for bride planning. Anyone in? We could meet monthly, exchange ideas, and maybe pot luck and wine. I wish I had more support, but alas I do not and I can't be the only one. I'll volunteer my place in Windham for meetings (or at least the first one). You can never have too many friends, right?
