I'm going to be the Matron of Honor in my best friend's wedding (2 weeks after mine) and we're probably going with Alfred Angelo #6123 too- what a small world!
We have all of our vendors (including our officiant! Woo hoo!) except the videographer, but he's about to do up our contract as well. Our photographer will only cost about $700 (she works with my dad). She is just starting up her official wedding photography business, so we're catching her at an excellent time, price-wise. Plus, she does amazing work. That is the #1 advice I can offer for everyone on this thread- a great photographer is absolutely worth the money!!!
Sims2Fan- I love the site you're having the wedding at! WOW! And Susa, do take pictures at your director's daughter's wedding for us- that site looks incredible!
Looks like we're too busy planning weddings to post on this thread anymore...haha!
How's everybody doing? Well, we booked our photographer - shoooo - glad that's done and I think we got a pretty good one. A husband and wife couple who use to have their own studio in Manhatten so we feel pretty good about that.
And the bridesmaids dress saga should be put to rest tomorrow.
I think we're getting that satin tea-length dress alfred angelo 6123...Amy, that's too funny you'll going to be wearing the same one!! I STILL keep going back and forth about pink or brown. I like your idea about getting a dress with a brown ribbon but my dress has a ribbon/bow on it and I'm wondering if that would clash. It's been hard trying to round up all 6 bridesmaids...I have one that hasn't been cooperating...I even offered to buy the dress for her and she could pay me back.
Next on the to do list is our tasting...what's everyone having for dinners? We also need to go pick out the cake and the flowers.
Also, where are you going on your honeymoon? We're looking at Jamaica, Mexican Riveria Maya and St. Lucia...any advice there? All inclusive all the way!
Oh and instead of favors, I think we're making a donation to the ASPCA...they will even send you placecards...http://www.aspca.org/site/PageServer...te_othergiving
Hope everyone is well!!!
I love reading everyone's plans!!
