The photos are incredibly beautiful, as is the bride! I love your dress, shoes, just your entire look: ethereal, peaceful, happy and glowing.

What an amazing event, and how ignorant of those folks who refused to attend the reception...! One can attend a festivity, opt out of the food, and grab a meal elsewhere afterward. We vegans do it all the time! I know a particular family member of mine whom I could TOTALLY see attending, but making a HUGE stink out of the possibility of death/fainting from meat deprivation for a few hours...

Thank you for sharing! Lovely.

vijita, that was so lovely! happy anniversary!

My parents are coming to do dress shopping this weekend and I am quite excited. So far we have a beautiful venue, a dj, a photographer, and our wedding party. I have picked out wedding bands for me and Mr. Fizz, bridesmaids' dresses, and centerpieces. It is all coming together finally! I don't feel like I'm fighting every step of the way, which is lovely. Also, we made our wedding website this weekend and Mr. Fizz wrote a really sweet proposal story out for it, explaining my ring and everything. So adorable.

So my venue has a 75 person minimum for the plated dinner/wedding package we're doing. I was thinking that was not a problem at all and we would easily fill that. I just looked at the definite yes people and got 56, including us. I don't know that we have 20 other people who will come. My extended family, which would be about 28 people, only has 8 people coming which is disappointing. My mom is getting anxious about that since we have to pay for 75 people anyway. We don't have a lot of friends, so I think we may have to consider inviting people's parents? Or giving everyone a plus one option? Stupid.

time to invite the PPK!

actually though, I'm sorry. That's a drag. it's so hard to figure out who to invite and such, and then it can be a bit surprising to find out who can actually come and who isn't able to make it. Good luck!

I got engaged a month ago (wow!) and had a nice lunch with b.vicious about planning. But we aren't getting married until the end of October so I think I'm going to put almost all planning off until August or September. I do have a bunch of ideas on venues and we'll both have next week mostly off so we should go look at places. It was fun reading through this thread today... it made the whole planning process seem less daunting!

Thanks, ameyfm. I'm mostly surprised by how far in advance they apparently know! We aren't getting married until September. Sure, they live in NY/NJ, and it is in Wisconsin, but my cousin got married in Florida and people came! Oh, well. At least I'll know the people who come really want to be there and aren't there out of an obligation kind of thing. And I looked at my guest list and realized Mr. Fizz gave a lot of his friends plus ones that I didn't know about which brought us to 66. And I also realized how awesome the people who are coming are...we have cool people.

Congrats, Pi! October weddings are so pretty with the leaves and everything. What kind of venue are you thinking?

I'm waiting to hear back from a place that used to be a church but has been converted into more of an event place. It still has a few of the prettier churchy details inside (a balcony with pews that they've added little round tables near for drinks) and the main area has plenty of room for tables/dancing and a stage for the dj. I should have a quote on Monday, the guy has been super nice. I want something near the subway, so it has been a bit harder to find things that aren't ridic expensive where we can also have a dj.

My dad has asked me how the planning is going... I think he might be as excited as my mom!

i gave the jeweler that made my ring a bad review on facebook. i just clicked on the one star option and didn't write any copy back in January because he told my friends that he was making the ring before i received it. well the jeweler just saw the review yesterday and posted a long crazy response and then called my fiance EIGHT times and said all sorts of vile stuff about me. crazy!

Wow, that sounds really crazy! Not a good way to get referrals from past customers.

Thanks for the reminder, I need to get my ring size for my guy. He is going to choose and buy a wedding ring for me (we skipped the engagement ring) and has asked a few times. I'll get one for him too, but he'll want something simple and it won't take as long to shop for.

Well. I have been engaged for 6 years, together 11.

Finally, this weekend, after a bit of a wakeup call with some health problems on behalf of my partner, I finally decided that it is time to set a date and get cracking. I am an event planner. that is my job. Planning my wedding is crazy stressful, even though it is going to be very non-traditional and little planning necessary.

I think we are going to do Vegas. Rent a HUGE house for friends and family to stay in for a long weekend. Found some crazy houses with water slides, movie theaters, golf courses etc. Then get married on the strip at this awful cheesy chapel by a Tom Jones impersonator. Reception back at the house. Not until next May, after taxes are back :) Will still be pretty inexpensive too.

I got a terrible reaction from friends and family when we got engaged 6 years ago. Very meh. Said they would try to make it if possible (this was before I mentioned a date). Some single girlfriends broke off our friendship since I was now engaged. Other friends coincidentally started drifting away after the announcement. Only a few people were truly excited and happy. It was really upsetting. My family (just siblings) have changed a lot since then and have really gotten close with my partner. I am not friends with the 'meh' people anymore. Still having massive anxiety. What if nobody wants to come? I am scared to even mention it to anyone. Maybe we should just elope.

I think you underestimate the willingness for people to take a free vacation. I mean it isn't like Las Vegas is that far of a drive. I had considered having a Las Vegas wedding but I knew that'd still be too close for my hundreds of relatives that live in Southern California and that'd be an expensive wedding even if I wasn't offering them free lodging.

I would say do what makes you happy. If you rent a house, they will come.

Chicki that sounds like a super fun wedding!

I just sent in a deposit on a venue! We're having a Halloween wedding! And I found someone to make vegan cake. So now I don't have to do any planning until August.

a halloween wedding sounds awesome!

has anyone here used either two officiants or a family member as an officiant? we are having a really hard time figuring out an officiant, and the-future-Mr. Fizz suggested using his brother (the best man) and my sister (the maid of honor) as joint officiants. I kind of like it but I'm also a little hesitant...thoughts, suggestions, experiences?

Since your best man and your maid of honor usually serve as the witnesses who sign your marriage certificate, I wonder if that precludes them from being the officiant also?

Biker boy has served as the officiant for his niece's wedding and he did a great job (it was just him, not joint officiants.) But it's a bit of a gamble, I guess. Although mine made a business of officiating weddings and did a crepe job; he'd double-booked himself for my date, so he took a deep breath, blurted out the whole ceremony in like 3 minutes flat, signed the certificate and bolted to the next gig. At least you know a family member isn't going to dick you over that way!
