Re: Anyone else obsessive?

  • I admire your dedication and organization!  You definitely have it together!  So far, we have a date and a place.  I figure in June we will start planning/booking.  What is your date?

  • Wow, I don't have as much but I am having a destination wedding in the Outer Banks and we're going down there a year from the date to do lots of stuff.  My FI is a graphic designer and he's done the website and STDs which we'll be mailing from the OBX on April 20 so they're post-marked exactly a year from the date from the destination.

    We have appointments to meet with the cake-maker/officiant and a florist in the Outer Banks for that week.  As well, we'll be scouting the Elizabethan Gardens for exactly where on the grounds we want to have the ceremony.  And finally, sampling some good ole Southern BBQ from the restaurant we're considering for catering.

    Oh, we have our favors though!  And the wine labels...

    Picked the dress but not buying til Thanksgiving.

    Enjoying this fun part!!
