First of all, I still can’t believe we’re getting married. But, it’s real. Really real now.
Chris and I have been engaged for just under 3 months now and somehow managed to make a fairly large dent in the wedding planning process already.
I’m currently on maternity leave, so one of my goals has been to secure all of the big stuff before I go back to work this October. I think we’ve done a pretty good job so far.
We started looking for a venue immediately after we got engaged, and I’m glad we did seeing as many of the venues I spoke with were booked through 2017. We called and met with over 30 venues in our area, and by total chance ended up picking one just down the street from where we live.
As of right now, we’ve booked the hall, the officiant, and the DJ. The photographer and decorator are already chosen and will be booked in the next few weeks. That covers all the big stuff.
There’s still a lot to do (flowers, dress, tuxes, invitations, etc.), but we’re well on our way. I’m just excited to know that our wedding has a real solidified date.
