    October 8th is our wedding date also!! ✨ I keep going back and forth from being nervous/ then VERY excited. I am feeling so overwhelmed with the planning.. I have been searching for a make up artist and a justice of peace that I feel confident in but no luck so far. Any advice when searching?

    Yay, date twins! Always love finding couples with the same day. Totally understand being overwhelmed. Thankfully we got engaged right before Covid hit, so I had a lotttttt of down time to plan our wedding haha. For both of those vendors (we have an officiant, not a justice of the peace, but hopefully this helps), I started with WW, found people with good reviews both here and in my local wedding Facebook groups, and honestly then scoured their social media pages. For MUA, I looked at work (obviously haha) but also if they had anything about them that I could “get to know”! For officiants, I looked for sample scripts and if they had videos of past weddings. When I found people I liked, I got quotes, but also had real conversations with them. That’s honestly my biggest advice is to schedule calls to go over your vision and get their thoughts. For my MUA, I originally picked someone else, but when I actually spoke to her, there was literally nothing other than “deposit is X, balance is Y, we’ll agree on a time in august” and it was NOT the energy I wanted on my day. I wound up having a conversation with someone else who was just as talented and she is just the sweetest human and I literally cannot wait to hang out with her. For officiant, same thing; I did a call and we talked about everything from wedding planning to pandemic to her family and mine to random stuff like pets (she had ducks 😂), and I felt like more than just another client or way to make money. Both actually seemed to care about me, my fiancé, and our day. So that’s my advice! No idea if it helps, haha! Have you hired all your other vendors? Is there anything making these two especially difficult?

    I’m October 23rd too! I don’t have school but I am working full time while looking for a new job and planning a move to a different state. The planning anxiety is kicking in. Sometimes I feel like I’m ahead, sometimes I feel completely overwhelmed! Good luck with school. You got this!

    October 23rd bride, I'm just a little stressed because so many vendors for specific things I need are either extremely expensive or already booked! I can't wait to marry my prince charming though ❤

    October 9th here!

    My only nerves are about having enough time to get all of our DIY projects done in time. Also, we don't have a wedding planner so I am a little nervous about everything running smoothly on the day of the wedding. BUT my excitement is outweighing my nerves and no matter what happens I still get to marry my best friend!

    Oh my goodness!!! Wow THANK YOU!! That was very very helpful!! I spoke with an officiant tonight actually and I felt SO connected to her! I did already hire all my other vendors (food, Dj, florist) I had a way easier time with finding those. I think I was putting A LOT of pressure on my self trying to find someone to marry us, I just want someone with same energy as myself and my fiancé. I just want the day to be as perfect as it can be (of course every bride does hahah) but I am feeling very happy and positive with the woman I spoke to tonight! So things are looking good in that department. As for the make up artist I am just lost ahaha I feel like there are so many MUA and it’s hard to find the right one for me.. part of me wonders if I can just do my makeup myself? Since I know exactly how I want my makeup to be? Ugh I don’t know hahaha im sure I will find someone it’s just the searching process has me a little stressed 😅

    Omg of course! I’m so glad you found an officiant! I had the same feelings. I didn’t want to look back and be like “okay but like the person who married us was nottttttt the vibe” 😂 for makeup, I totally get you! Beyond some mascara and eyeliner, I do not do my makeup, so hiring was a must-have hahaha but one of my girlfriends did her makeup for her wedding and it came out beautiful! She had the same thought of knowing what she wanted so why spend the money. At least you know if you don’t find someone you love, that’s an option!
