    Wedding Colors: Greens, cream and black with accents of plum.
    Reason for picking a September wedding: Erik's sister got married this past December on 12/11/10 - andddd there was a HUGEEEE snowstorm with about two feet of snow by the end of the evening. I wanted a month that there would be no chance of snow in - and since we live on the Wisconsin/Minnesota boarder, our options were limited to June-September.

    Best perk of such a long engagement: I get to spend a lot of time working on my DIY projects that I am excited to get done!

    Biggest annoyance of such a long engagement: Containing my excitement! And every time I book a vendor or go shopping, the employees always say "well you just have sooooo much time". Ugh.
    Best perk of such a long engagement: We can make sure that we do things our way! We can take our time, get the vendors we want, and we can afford to be nit-picky without too much of a timeline.

    Wedding Colors: White and Black with accents of Red

  • Name/FI's Name: Jennifer & Justin

    Ages: 35 &38

    Wedding Date: Was 9/8 but looking at changing to 9/1

    Wedding Colors: green and yellow

    Reason for picking a September wedding: We want an outdoor wedding.  Spring the weather is too unpredictiable.   Like last night we had a tornado warning.   Summer is too hot.  We figure the weather starts to cool off in September.

    Biggest annoyance of such a long engagement: Long engagement?  This feels like not enough time.   Maybe I am just overwhelmed.  FI seems to think we have ALL the time in the world.  I planned my first wedding in 20 days.   My cousin was enaged 2 1/2 years.  So to me this feels about right.

    Best perk of such a long engagement: I can pick what I want.  I don't have to worry that venues I might want are all booked and I have to take plan W because A-V are all booked. 

    Size of wedding party: Grooms side, no clue.  I know he has picked a best man and my oldest son as a groomsman.  So at least 2.  I have 2 bridesmaids and 2 jr bridesmaids.  

    Vendors booked so far: NONE!!!!  That is what freaks me out.

    Projects I'm DIY-ing: Invities, Save the dates, possibly fans, possibly the flowers.  What can I say I am a DIY kind of girl.  Oh and some of the catering.
  • Name/FI's Name: Alaina and Jason Ages: 28 and 34 Wedding Date: 9-08-12 Wedding Colors: keep going back and forth between two sets of color combos... Either red and burnt orange or green and chocolate brown Reason for picking a September wedding: he hates the heat, i hate the cold, and spring is too unpredictable. Plus my mom is a planner at work (not a wedding planner though lol), so we had to work around her schedule. Biggest annoyance of such a long engagement: i am impatient. Best perk of such a long engagement: I am paying for it, so it gives me plenty of time to save up. Also gives my mom and I time to get together, since we are both very busy with our work schedules. Size of wedding party: 3 on each side and a rb Vendors booked so far: venue for ceremony and reception. I know who my florist will be, but havent booked them (family friend). Projects I'm DIY-ing: dont know yet

    Ages: 24 & 30

    Reason for picking a September wedding: That will be our 8 year anniversary, we liked the idea of being able to keep the same date.

    Biggest annoyance of such a long engagement: I want to plan everything and do everything right now! I am so impatient.

    Best perk of such a long engagement: The ability to save $$ and to get first pick of all the vendors.

    Size of wedding party: 5 on each side

    Vendors booked so far: Nada! We are still looking :)

    Projects I'm DIY-ing: Centerpieces and probably anything else I can get my hands on without screwing up.

    Wedding Date: September 9, 2012
    Wedding Colors: Cornflower Blue & Kiwi Green
    Reason for picking a September wedding: It's the date of the first time Joe told me he loved me. Since he accuses me often of not being sentimental it shocked him that I remembered this day and chose it. :) Point for me!!!

    Best perk of such a long engagement: Paying for pretty much everything upfront, being able to book our first choice venues, and being able to focus on traveling for the last couple of years.
    Size of wedding party: Six on each side
    Vendors booked so far: Wedding Site, Reception Site, & Catering
    Projects I'm DIY-ing:
    Sadly I am not too crafty but,  since we're getting married in Vegas flowers are included in our wedding site package, and our reception venue is a Nightclub so we will be doing minimal decorating.
