    Awesome Cassandra! I agree, that will be an easy date to remember.

    The next big thing is the photographer. Really good ones may need you to book your wedding a year or so in advance. I would start looking around and set up appointments to look at portfolios. You want to make sure you like the photographer and their work. Pay attention to their styles. Some photographers like to pose their subjects, while others like to do candid shots.

    Later, you will want to book musicians or a DJ. And you'll also want to look into caterers if your reception hall does not have a preferred one. Sampling food from caterers is always fun!

    For me, the dress was my most important choice! Remember this is about you and Andrew. Don't let other people make it about their special neediness.

    The dress is VERY important. And the decision shouldn't be rushed. OMG, I think I tried on hundreds of dresses. LOL! Everything looked so pretty in the pictures or on the rack, but then they never looked "right" when I tried them on.

    Thanks everyone! I am so excited. Now, I need to decide on my colors.. The place where I'm having the reception, the dining room is very jewel-toned with maroon, beige and like an amethyst-purple, so I don't want to clash with what the room already has.

    Any suggestions?

    wishlist..
    .sofia coppola monogram
    .vernis alma mm in pomme d'amour
    .artsy mm
    .python galliera pm
    .monogram galliera pm

    Congratulations Cass!! and that ring is to dye for... I didn't have one, not before the weeding and not for the first anniversary, or the second, or the third... Bu I won't give up hope!
    Mine was really easy to remember too: 03/04/05, and it was my husband's birthday!

    Hmm... you could probably do pink or purple or blue (like a darker, jewel-toned blue).

    Thanks andra & viva.

    So I've decided to name instead of number each table. Since the room is jewel-toned and I love me some gems, I'm naming each table after a gemstone. So each table will have a tablecloth, napkins and floral arrangements with LED lights and gems to coordinate with the color of that gemstone. To tie all the floral arrangements together since they will all be different colors, each arrangement is going to have peacock feathers in it.

    We hired and put deposits down on the florist, band, photographer, videographer and cake. I pretty much have nothing to do until the beginning of the year when I go back to the hotel for the food tasting and meet with all the vendors to make decisions and pick out my dress and bridesmaids dresses. I haven't picked the colors of my bridesmaids' dresses, but since the room is going to have so many colors in it, I can pretty much go with anything.

    wishlist..

    That sounds so pretty Cassandra! I love the idea of peacock feathers and I love the idea of naming each table after a gemstone! Very creative on your part!

    Thanks bRs! It's very exciting. For the favors I'm giving cigars to the men and for the women I'm going to give gemstone jewelry.. just not sure what exactly it's going to be.

    Wow! Sounds fancy! But, hey, at least you know people won't just throw them away! We did hand painted magnets with our names and the date on them. Now whenever people open their refrigerators, they will think of our wedding.

    Could you get little pendants maybe?
