Wedding Wednesday

Hey ladies, how's everyone's week going? What did you get done and what's on the docket for this week?

We've been super unproductive lately. Started planning out our music for the reception. That's it. In the next week or two I plan on starting to book appointments to go dress shopping!

Also, anyone been watching the sh!tstorm on the E-board the last day and half? Some girl asked a question about an informal ceremony and reception held like a year later and they are destroying her. Sugar, I don't blame you for being offended by that board. Some of those girls are straight up vicious!

Re: Wedding Wednesday

  • We have a meeting with the Justice of the Peace this week and I'm looking into maybe having a photobooth at the wedding. But I'm not sure FI will go for it since it's and extra 1k. Otherwise it's been a pretty mellow week. I'll probably try to set up a tasting with the caterer soon but otherwise I don't even have anything on my radar. 

    I just went to see what you post you were talking about and it was intense! There's a reason I lurk there but will never post.

    I told ya'll some of these people are crazy lol. I think they have no lives and thrive on being bitches towards everyone. It's like they are a pack and as soon as one disagrees, they all move in for the kill and tear the OP to shreds...

    I booked the venue Monday. FI and I are trying to decide on who we want to marry us. His late grandpa (the one he was named after and extremely close to) was a preacher. Jim is having a hard time about it. He said he had always planned on him being the one who would marry him. I never got to meet his Grandparents and last night Jim said, "They would've really liked you." I  must have been in a crying mood because I cried my eyes out. It was just so sad. We are leaning towards a close friend of his grandpa who is a relative of mine. We have both known this man both our entire lives and both have alot of respect for him so I think he's perfect for us :)

    ETA: I looked at the thread ya'll were talking about...dang. I didn't even read all of the first page. Was it seriously neccasary for them to attack her? I think she was misunderstood about the whole "it's not a wedding" thing. Unless the OP has the mentality of a rock, I think she knows that it is a wedding. lol That's kinda common sense...

    I want to do this so bad!...FI wants me to do it too lol. But how do you go about finding a photog that you can actually trust to do it? I would be scared to death it would get leaked on the internet or something and then everyone would see sexy pics of me.

  • I had to go creep on that post to see what you were talking about. Those girls always seem so angry. Granted, I know not everything is cupcakes and unicorns and glitter, and blunt opinions are sometimes needed, but there's a way to correct someone without being rude and tactless.

    Okay, onto wedding stuff...our engagement pictures are this weekend!! We booked them so long ago that I fell into the mindset that I had tons of time to prepare, and now it's like "oh, eff, now I have five days to finish up our save the date sign, get my nails done, give the dog a bath (he's going to be in some of the pictures), get outfits together, etc.". Fortunately, every other week I have Fridays off, so I have all day Friday to get my act together.

    A girl I know from high school has recently started working as a photographer, and a few days ago she had a boudoir session that she photographed linked all over her company's facebook page. Maybe she checked with the girls (apparently it was like a "girls weekend" sort of thing) and got their okay to post the pictures online, but my first thought when I saw the pictures was "OMG, she just put pictues of these girls in lingerie all over the freaking internet." So, yeah, I'd definitely be concerned about something like that happening.

    <div>
    </div><div>I'm thinking about doing it too but I'm so afraid of the same thing! I asked on my local board for some recommendations of who people have used as well as asking my photographer if she knew of anyone who does them. I figured if someone has used them before and had positive experiences it would be better than some crackpot I find myself. My friend's FFIL is also a photographer so I had her ask him for me and I think I'm going with someone he recommended. She has some pictures on her site but it clearly says that those women signed a waiver for her to use the pictures and none will be posted anywhere without written consent so that made me feel better. </div>

  • Sugar- Real photographers that have experience won't post pictures unless you give them permission.  Mine asked me for permission and I said no, mostly because if it got around somehow, it could be considered inappropriate and bad judgement.  These things would jeopardize my career.

    Honestly I found mine on my local board, someone had asked the question who is a good boudoir photog and I just browsed through the answers and found one who was close to me and I could see some of her work.  Some girls had let her post pictures on her blog so I got to see a few.

    With regard to the E-board, holy crap.  I don't think I will ever post over there lol.

  • My local board is completely dead. So asking over there is pretty much pointless lol.

    This guy and his GF that I know are both photographers. I trust them in not leaking pics but the fact that I know them might be weird. Based on the FB page, they do photos that I would imagine would be similar to those found in Playboy so it's not like I would be asking them to do something they've never done before. I guess I will just have to look into it.

    Yeah, I lurk like crazy on the E-board and the chit chat board because it's basically the same group of crazies. 

    Happy aniverssary Ash! Our four year is also coming up! 

    My photographer does boudoir, but she does them in front of a plain backdrop, which I don't really like. I want to do a boudoir shoot, but I love the ones done in big fluffly beds with loadds of pillows. So unless I can find a reasonably priced photographer to do it that, I may have to skip it. I really want to do one though.

  • Hello everyone!

    I asked my friend to be my maid of honor on Sunday and I am really glad how excited she is! I was nervous about asking her because we haven't been as close since she moved to a different part of the state a few years ago.  She and I have really similar tastes and have been talking about wedding stuff for years so I think I made the right choice.

    I also decided to incorporate apple blossoms into the wedding decor since the reception is at an apple orchard. 

    FI wants to try and do our own E-pics since he does photography as a hobby. He is writing an app that will allow him to take the photos with his phone.

    MrsKaiser- I know what you mean! You can tell when a post is going to cause a ton of drama on the E-board. I'm pretty sure some of it is intentional, but I think the regulars over there can be too quick to jump down the OP's thoat when it could be handled a lot nicer.


    June 2013- Engagement Rings!!
    image Daisypath Wedding tickers
  • Eljays- that sounds so pretty, apple blossoms tying in the whole theme!  There is so much you can do with that, escort cards being apples or caramel apples or spiced cider in jars, whatever!

    So I had to come back here... I found my boudoir photographer on here by mistake!  I was on my local board, I had posted about barns, and was scrolling through suggestions someone else made and suddenly was like, hmm that person in the sig with their family looks familiar.  Oh it looks like Jenni!  Sure enough, her sn is jenni-something!  Creepy lol

    And for everybody, I can not wait to see everyone's engagement photos, looks like you are all getting them lined up!

  • I have a consult with a florist on Friday and beginning to look into bakeries for the cake. Hoping to get florist and cake wrapped up by mid June so I can coast through the summer.

    Hey ok getting a cold my throat scratchy. Nothing been working most of the day relaxing. Should be planning stuff out no just lazy.

     
  • I agree with you girls about the E-board, I love to lurk there, some of it is just too crazy, and I post there only seldomly, if I feel I can truly add something to the conversation.

    I just confirmed with our photographer.  He sent us a quote, and it's to our liking, so he's sending the contract this week.  I spent some time over the weekend talking to one of my BM's, FSIL, and she is completely tickled that I am taking the "get a dress in this color from this designer" route.  I think her last wedding experience was less than happy, so I'm glad she's on board!

  • I'm currently trying to find a DJ.  It's soooo hard because I'm not looking for someone with flashing lights and props and cheesey music, or someone who costs a lot.  I've emailed a ton of DJs and only got responses from 2!  I swear this is the worst part of wedding planning.

    Now for the best part of wedding planning:  we've finalized our honeymoon plans!!!  We're going to Alaska and for anyone who has ever been there, it's not easy to figure out where to go and what to do in a 2 week time frame.  The state is bigger than I thought, so driving around too much and trying to see too many things will make our trip stressful.  We've been doing a lot of research and we think we have a good itinerary:  Anchorage, Seward, Glacier View (near Palmer but waaaaay out in the middle of nowhere since we wanted to do that for a few nights), Denali, and then back to Anchorage to fly home.  We're going to be sea kayaking in the Kenai Fjords in Seward, doing a guided glacier hike on Matanuska Glacier, and flightseeing over Denali and Mt. McKinley!  We are so crazy excited!  People suggested booking our cabins now since there's not many places to stay in each town and they can book up fast, so we might start that tonight.  One place only has 3 cabins and 2 are booked during our stay!  The cabins are all so romantic with pretty views, so I seriously can't wait to get up there!

  • KplusA- OMG I am in the same boat as you, and I am SO frustrated. I have emailed about 5 DJs. 1 emailed me back like a week after a sent the original message and that is the only response I have gotten back. I am sorry, and I know this is bridezillaish, but if you want my business, I expect a prompt response when all I emailed you for is a price quote. If it takes someone a week to get back to me over something so simple, what if I have a real problem in the middle of wedding planning, are they going to take a month to get back to me? Also, how do you really know what you are getting? I just dont even know what to do.

    Other than this, I have been really unproductive. My e-pics are scheduled for the first week of September, and my mom and are are trying to arrange some days next month to start going dress shopping. I am so excited and scared at the same time.

  • Wow! I can't believe how rude some of those women are. I purposely don't post a lot because that is exactly the reaction I'm afraid of. Needless to say I will never post over there. On to our wedding... I sent out the deposit for the DJ who will also be doing our lighting and Photobooth for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Bar: Have you booked your DJ yet? We looked at a few and all offered a Photobooth in their packages. Since we're close to the same area I can you give you some names if you'd like. I have decided to wait for my mother to come in July to shop for a dress which is going to kill me but I will try to be strong. I plan on contacting officiants this week so I can start making some appointments.

  • FI is coming to town this weekend! I tried to book a time for us to go look at our venue, but he'll be in a conference all day, and they won't let us see it at night. They said I could go by myself on Saturday afternoon to see it set up for a wedding that night. I can't wait! 

    I'm also going to meet with a lady who owns a decor rental company on Sunday. The only things we'll have to do after that is our dresses and tuxes, rings, and DOC. I think that's why the fitness routine is going so well. I don't have anything else to focus on except fitting into my dream dress.

    I've been working out like a fiend. It's a long story, but I had a severe vitamin deficiency and my muscles were really weak. Now that I'm on supplements, I'm gaining muscle. Not great for the numbers on the scale, but great for burning fat. I've lost 2 dress sizes. Now I need to get my bridesmaid's dress for my sister's wedding altered.

  • Belle- we already booked our DJ. He was actually the DJ at our friend's wedding and we loved him and if we payed in full it was less than $800 for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception so we couldn't pass him up. I'm not sure if we're going to do a photobooth or not, I have to talk it over with FI. Thank you for the offer though!
