    Well, luckily I don't have to do much wedding planning!  We booked an elopement package up near Banff, Canada at this little lodge.
     





    It comes with 2 nights lodging, cake, bouquet, bout, champagne, officiant, 3 course wedding dinner, breakfasts and someone to coordinate it all for you.

    I already found my photographer last week, signed the contract today.  I know where to get my hair done too, will book them tomorrow.

    Stuff before we leave: get FI a ring, pick out my shoes and get my dress taken in (not required as I think it fits as is).

    We've been making up a game plan before we had the actual date.  Book a few other hotels/campgrounds for the rest of the nights!

    I visited Banff a couple years ago with FI and it was amazingly beautiful!  What a wonderful destination to choose for an elopement!  At this point, there are probably many brides on this board wishing they had done an elopement!  It sounds like you have it all together just as much as the rest of us. Congrats!

    I actually had a 75 guest wedding planned for 7/14/2012 which was to be in Grand Teton National Park.  Both of our families live far away, so if they are flying to see us might as well have it some where cool andJackson has something for everyone. 

    Then my dad was given a few months to live after his long battle with cancer, and the wedding was in the middle.  We cancelled the wedding and he passed away 6/1/2012.  I am glad we cancelled for other reasons too, because there was a lot of drama from my side that just made it all very hard to deal with.

    Seriously, our ideas have taken us to 3 different countries, 5 different states, trying to figure out who to accomdate and what do we want and how to do both, so I'm ready for someone to just plan it all for me now!


    MrsNaut0812 - you're a weekday wedding too?  Do tell!

    Come on in, the water's fine! :) I think you'll find us August brides are all ridiculously nice haha :D
    On a more somber note, I'm sorry to hear about your dad and all the drama and such. Nobody wants to plan a wedding when all that stress is bringing everything down.
    So glad you finally have a chance to marry your sweetheard. I'll keep my fingers crossed that nothing else pops up and you get everything done by the time the 28th rolls around! (Although it sounds like you've got pretty much everything covered.)
    Congratulations on finding such a gorgeous venue, btw!
