Washington-Seattle

Introduction

I've been using "the knot" for a while but haven't been active on the boards.  My wedding is July 30, 2011 and I suddenly realized it's going to come up quick! 

We just changed our venue from outdoors at a state park to a church (long story, but less nerve-wracking place).  We are having 1 attendant each, and inviting about 200 people.  This is his frist non-elopment wedding and my first wedding - we are both over 40 (okay, closer to 50 - LOL).  My two youndest nieces will be candle lighters and a friend will sing during the wedding (guitar and maybe piano).  We also will have piano for the prelude, processional and recessional.

The reception will be "traditional" i.e. cake, coffee, punch, nuts & mints and there will be some toasts with sparking cider (dry wedding) and a first dance.

I'm feeling very overwhelmed in trying to plan things.  My fiance is great but wants me to give a couple choices only, my matron-of-honor (sister) lives out of state.  Keep trying to visualize what I want but keep coming up blank.  Deep breathing does help.  :)

    Yes, deep breaths will help! It can be overwhelming, but you're doing things right, just one step at a time... Sounds like you have a lot of the most important things down already! Your wedding sounds like it will be very special!
