February 2012 Weddings

Where are you in your wedding planning?

Hey, I was just wondering where everyone was with their wedding planning. Do you have anything booked yet? Do you have your ceremony, reception site, photographer booked or is everyone just doing research?

I'm getting married on a Sunday, February 19th and so far we just have our reception site booked.

Re: Where are you in your wedding planning?

  • I have nothing done. I have tons of ideas though. FI and I need to schedule times to go visit venues. I know its still 1.5 years away, but its stressing me out already! 
  • Don't be stressed! We really do have so much time. We can all relax and not rush into making any decisions.

  • Ours is an all inclusive package for our ceremony/reception site-- unfortunately, we can't book until exactly a year before the wedding! So all planned for that, but no deposit yet! 
  • Fi and I were on vacation at Crystal Mountain in MI going golfing 6 weeks after we met on a ski trip up there. We saw an ad in the flier in our room about a couple that got married outdoors on the slope we first skiied down that weekend. So we know the venue and date and have LOTS of the details worked out (because I'm a major perfectionist and will be graduating from the nursing program just weeks after the wedding. Going to cut into some major study time lol).

    But that's about it. I have a very good idea of what I want, and we plan on meeting with someone at the mountain when we take our next annual ski trip there next February :)

    Here's a link to their outdoor wedding, if anyone cares lol >HERE<

    I've thought about themes, colors and lots of other details, but I'm still looking for a venue.  We just changed the wedding to Feb. 25, 2012.  It was originally June 2, 2012, so I have to rethink some of the plans.  When the wedding was in June, we had the option of outdoor weddings too, but now we have to look for indoor venues.

  • We have our theme (rat pack/casino) and I have it narrowed to 2 venues. I think I found my DJ today, and I booked some entertainment (casino dealers) a few weeks back...

    I have lots already thought out on my planning bio in my sig...

  • We booked our place over the weekend.  Hard to get a good price for a place in NJ. So, now I can relax until after the holidays!!!!

  • Looks like I am actually ahead of the game. We have our reception venue, church and DJ booked for our date and I am looking at photographers now. I wanted to get all the big stuff out of the way earlier rather than later. Plus, I am a planner at heart.

  • We have booked our ceremony and reception venue, our hotel room block, our rehearsal dinner, and our officiant.  We started pricing ceremony/cocktail hour musicians last week, and now we are looking at photographers now and thinking about what readings we want.  I'm like Ktelfer - a planner - so I insisted that we get our venue done almost immediately (and I'm glad we did because it was already filling up for winter 2011-2012!).  I kind of figured once we had the venue booked, the rest would fall into place.  Not entirely true, but it's a relief having that out of the way.
  • I have deposits down on my DJ, Casino Tables & Photographer as of now.

    I'm getting impatient waiting on FI to come home on R&R and I'm tempted to just do my deposit on our venue even though I promised him I'd take him to look before that commitment

  • I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who is super planner already! I'm a 02/12/12 bride and while we haven't put any deposits down we are just waiting on my mom to visit to check them out in Dec before we do :)
  • You all are ahead of the game for sure. I am trying to decide between FL and California- it will come down to where we find the best venue. 2/11/12 will be the date, but we're having the hardest time finding a place that gives us what we need for the right price...trying to have patience and perseverance. 

    I do have my dress though!
