    Once we got engaged we started going around to local venues to see how they looked and what we could afford. It was maybe 3 months or so before we really started the process. We had a long engagement so we could afford the wedding and our honeymoon. As far as date I picked it and it was close to our engagement date.

    Absolutely! But now that all of those dates are gone what's a girl to do lol did your hubby leave it all up to you? Were you just supposed to pick the time and place then tell him to show up? I'm just wondering because I know my SO wants to marry me but when I talk wedding its almost like he gets uncomfortable

    Well I'm getting married in 36 days(its after midnight here) and df proposed nov 10, 2010. We picked a date but had to keep changing due to drama and health. Now we are getting married march 23rd, 2013. It is 1 day before df's 21st birthday. Our original date was may 18th, 2013 because he wanted to honor my grandma and get married on their wedding date.

    How did I plan decorations? Haha I started attending wedding shows this year and just found random ideas I liked and also Pinterest is a great place!

    So we are having a rustic spring country wedding. Our colors are aqua and peach. Spring flowers with a focus on white, ivory and peach roses. Our venue...it's not based on our theme. It's based on my grandma and her health and getting her around. So it's at our community center and we are having both ceremony and reception there.
    If you have more questions feel free to ask! Our budget is $5000

    we lived in Hawaii so we knew we had the perfect location. We planned out wedding for the end of may because that's when our family would be able to fly in to attend. Soon as he popped the question  we started planning. Many great venues are booked way in advance so its best to book your  venue soon as you decide a date and where you want it to be held. We booked the hale koa which is a hotel on the beach in Honolulu. I booked it in nov and the only day it was open was  1 weekday in the  evening so i had to take it. It was fully booked for a year in advance. We also had to plan way ahead of time because  hawaii is a destination wedding so people needed to plan time to come out. So maybe im not too much help sorry :)

    We started discussing right away. We got engaged at the end of September and DH was deploying to Afghanistan the end of January so we moved quickly. We live in NY - my family lives in MO - his family lives in ID. So we knew it was going to be a hassel no matter what. So - we picked a location that was cheap for everyone to fly and stay in a hotel - VEGAS. It was an easy decision. As for dates - the army picked it lol. He had a 5 day weekend for Thanksgiving. he wasnt allowed to take any extra time off for a honeymoon so we flew out there the first day - got married the next day and spent the rest of the vaca on a "honeymoon in venice - we stayed at the venitian". We didnt go to the White Chapel or anything. It was a real chapel with a real church and about 30 people showed up etc.
