    Hi Stinkerbell,I was supposed to get married in Oct changed to April 5th! Cant change it on my profile!!you have alot done compared to me, I have no dress still not decided on a church, I have girls dress and just org flowers tonight I have invites sent out (thats because we are travelling from Ireland) no reception yet I have looked into everything - hair make up limo flowers after party next day party and the rest just no deposit on it, to be honest I think im a bit scared incase I find something better - silly really, No photographer or videographer booked. Maybe I had better get a move on!!!Hope this helps x

    Sheila - I have been looking at everything for a while and wanted to have most of the deposits, etc down so I could just work on paying things off the last few months rather than still deciding...but....the one thing I am REALLY having the hard time with is the food!!!! haha...I agree...I think I am just scared to commit, because like you said "WHAT IF".... everything else I was not hesitant about... But after I looked at what I have done....I am pretty happy where I am at...Just want to keep getting things checked off!! LOL

    This is a neglected planning bio.
    This is a belated married bio, with no reviews yet because I'm lazy.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284

    We are getting married April 2. -We booked the ceremony at Caesars -the reception insuite at planet hollywood -Catering and drinks with masterpiece -my dress is supposed to arrive in November -we booked Bently Wilson -Invitations are ordered we are just waiting for the proof -veil is ordered, shoes I have and I know what I am looking for for accessories I just have to find them We are figuring out decor for the suite but it is tricky coming from Canada because I can't take much with me and what if I can't find the exact things that I want. I have no idea for bridesmaid dresses. Cake I know what I want it to look like haven't done anything about it yet But I think we are pretty organized but I will still stress until the last minute.

    Yeah, I'm pretty much dead set on not leaving anything to the last minute.  I actually had to remind myself that I really don't need to start making the invitations now, they probably won't take that long (we're only going to need 20-30).  The officiant thing is a biggie, as I've been told the paperwork can take up to three months to go through.  We need to get a move on that one.
