    August 29 here! We got engaged on July 4 and I started planning about a month later. It's been going pretty well so far. I have the venue, caterer, and photographer. Doing engagement photos October 19. Next up on the list is booking the DJ or band, florist, and cake.

    Guest list will be around 130. My family is huge, so it's hard to go much smaller than that. If things are still bad next year, we'll probably do a super-small ceremony and then move the reception to a later date. I'm from Boston and we're getting married on the North Shore right on the ocean, which I love.

    I feel like it鈥檚 gone pretty well! I have several things already to go for the wedding day! The wedding store we were at yesterday, said that we were ahead of the game and they like that lol. Wedding Wire has helped me out a lot, I didn鈥檛 know where to start from when we first got engaged.

    We're having it 08/28/21! So far we have the vendors and the venue booked, my dress and my fianc茅's suit ordered, and wedding night hotel. We are trying to figure out where to have our hotel blocks. Our venue is about 2 hours from the airport and our family lives right between, so we were thinking of hotels near our family.

    It鈥檚 going well for me. The only difficulty I experienced was selecting a date that was available for my vendor (they were really booked up for the month of August).

    I鈥檝e got my vendors picked and the venue, just working on getting the money to book them. My dress was ordered and came in from Italy. I鈥檓 so glad I ordered it as early as I did. I wasn鈥檛 sure how long it would take. We鈥檙e just paused right now til I can come up with the funds. Currently working 3 jobs to pay for everything. Fingers crossed!

    I agree! That part is hard. My fianc茅 and I were going to go to Hawaii but that鈥檚 up in the air. We decided we鈥檙e going to wait until February, we鈥檙e getting married August 28th, to make any final decisions. We agreed that if it still seemed uncertain we would take a long weekend somewhere and then have our true honeymoon on our year anniversary. That way we could truly relax!

    Don't stress! It sounds like a lot of us here were 2020 brides who had to move their original date, so they'd had some planning done beforehand. And the main reason I jumped on setting a date so fast is because my fiance and I are both a bit older and want to start a family asap.

    What I am trying to do is start with the big things that are date dependent... so the venue, catering, photographer, and DJ/band. Things that if they're not available on that date I'd need to book someone else. Then my second-tier is going to be things I need ready for that day but that don't require someone to have that day set aside just for me, like the cake and flowers. Once all of that is taken care of I can do the fun things like dresses. Smiley smile

    Once you book the venue it all sort of starts to fall into place. It's stressful right now because none of us have any idea what the covid situation will look like next August, but I've been trying to look at the wedding as a big party I get to have with everyone I love as sort of a "reward" for getting through this social distancing time. And even if it ends up having to get pushed back to 2022, it's still going to happen and it will be great whenever it does.

    August 7th 2021 twins! I would 100% agree with that! I heard good things about the all inclusive packages through Costco.

    It鈥檚 been a breeze. But still remaining cautious. We got the venue, florist, DJ, Photographer/Videographer and dress. Still got many things to check off. Awaiting for the day!

    Hi! Wedding planning is going! Getting everything set in place. We have our center pieces ready but the question is, should we hire someone else to help us put out the center pieces? I want all our guests to just come to the wedding, not help out. I just don鈥檛 know what to do. Suggestions?
