October 1st Wedding!

Samantha, on August 15, 2016 at 12:30 PM Posted in Planning 0 19

Anyone else getting married on this date!?

My wedding is a bit last minute as we just decided to go for it! We are simple and super laid back, but I am worried we may forget something important!

We have only been planning for a few weeks but so far:

I have the venue, dress and decorations. Invites go out this week. I'm finalizing with my caterer as well as the DJ.

Any advice!?

    You need to also look into an officiant, photography, and booze (if not included with your caterer).

    Seems like you've gotten a lot done is a short amount of time Smiley smile

    When you get a chance update your avatar. It will allow the community to get to know you better and you will get more responses.

    I'm starting to freak out and I've had a year and a half to plan, so good luck! I also suggest using the checklist, it will help you make sure you're not forgetting something. I'm not sure where you are located but you might want to start looking into getting your marriage license if you haven't already.

    Thank you all for your input!

    We are having a caterer who is taking care of all bartending and alcohol needs.

    I did update my avatar but not sure why it isn't showing!

    The checklist is uber helpful! In addition to that, we bought a whiteboard and wrote down everything that still needs to be done.

    As PPs have said, start looking into marriage licenses because the big day will be here before we know it!

    Thank you CatBones, I am a planner by nature so it has been fun!

    We are getting married in an old town house that has been converted into a ballroom. The room is so large we are having the ceremony and reception in one place, with about 80 people. I am excited to get everything finalized, especially the guest list!
