Dear April '16 Knotties,
There hasn't been any discussion for quite some time. We are now four months away from our wedding, where is everyone on their wedding planning?
As for me, the venue has been booked (Blue Ocean Event Center, Salisbury, MA), and we just booked photography. I plan to send out "Save the Date" this month. I've already brought some of the favors which are love birds salt and pepper shakers. I've been buying them in batches on Ebay.
Love birds is the theme and the colors are ivory, sage, and chocolate brown. The wedding date is Saturday, April 23rd. The ceremony will take place at a 11:00 AM followed by a brunch buffet reception.
I found a JCrew wedding dress, but just found a web site that sells the same dress (new) for almost half the price. Just have to decide if I want to take the chance to buy the dress (no return policy) without trying it on, or wait to go down to New York City to a JCrew store to try it on.
I found a wonderful artisan a couple days ago at a women's conference expo in Boston who will custom design my statement earrings. The JCrew gown is very simple and plan to wear statement earrings highligting the wedding colors.
The next priority is deciding on hiring a DJ and/or live muscians for the ceremony and reception. Also, we need to find a justice of the peace and hope to book by the end of January.
I would love to hear from my fellow April bride cohorts as we countdown to our wedding day!
