The wedding thread

I know there are a few of us on this forum who are engaged and wedding planning. So I figured it would be fun to have a thread where we can bounce ideas off each other, share tips or even have a good vent.

I am getting married in the fall of 2014. We don't want a huge wedding, hoping to keep it under 100 guests. I am going to a wedding show on Jan 20th. We are currently entered in an engagement story contest where you can win a $1200 wedding photography package. We are in the top 3 so fingers crossed!

My Mom and future MIL and SIL are coming with me to the wedding show. I still haven't decided on my wedding party but that will come with time. My lovely fiance doesn't want to even hear about wedding plans right now lol. He told me to come to him when I have things started and put together. Apparently this is "my thing" and he will just show up lol.

Best wishes!!
Your wedding is along way away. My advice is to not make many decisions yet, and no deposits yet, styles change, yout tastes change, new things might come about, budgets change, heck, you might be a compleatly different person in 20 months.

Thank you!

That is exactly how I view it. We are not booking anything yet. I am getting out there to get ideas. I am on a weight loss mission so I am not looking for a dress until this fall. The next 6 months are just looking. We are thinking August/September time for the wedding. That will get narrowed down as we get ideas of where we want to do it, who we are inviting. That kind of deal. I have lots of time which is perfect.

I am the kind of person who needs time to get things together because I am overly organized and a stickler for details. I carefully plan so having time to get it all together will be great for my little detailed mind haha

My first wedding, I went to all the trouble of planning..stressed my self right out!!

Second wedding- I said fug it, and we booked a wedding package down in Eureka Springs ARK. I just had to buy my dress, hire a photog, let them know what cake I liked and what flowers and show up.

The venue was B&B mansion (very classy) and we were married in the parlor- they even provided the cake. This wedding/mini honeymoon cost us around $1500 when it was all said and done.. It wasn't extravagant by any means and we only had about 10 people there, but I think it turned out really nice.. And it was a hell of alot easier than months and months of planning and details.

I love weddings!!! I support my horses by being a cake decorator and my favorite is wedding cakes. Y'all can check out my cakes at

Love seeing their engagement rings and hearing all the details. I say get a budget going and do your best to stick to it. My nephew just got married and we pulled their little wedding together in 2 weeks and it was just perfect. Not fancy, just nice and full of love, laughter, family and a few friends.

QOS your cakes are BEAUTIFUL!! I love them!!

We have a budget and we are set on it. Sadly both our families would not be impressed if we wanted to do a super small wedding with next to no people. He has to big of a family and my family is just crazy lol. I am excited though. We are doing a country wedding with a lot of family traditions.
