Some music has been chosen.

My favorite part of weddings! Anything you can share?

Only took a few months but I think I may have my engagement ring chosen. :)

I have my eye on a venue, photographer, and caterer, too.

Some music has been chosen.

I hope it doesn't get too stressful down the road. It's going well enough right now.
Engagement ring came in... oh, hmm, not sure when. Custom Alexandrite because I don't f*** with diamonds.

Venue chosen (pictures are on the site) and photographer chosen (engagement photos also on the site). Caterer chosen but have to sign the contract still.

Fred, I'll link to music tomorrow when I'm not on my phone. :)

Hoping it works out to use this for our first dance.

These How Sweet it Is or Stand By Me covers are also contenders, but may end up as processional picks.

Other music must and will include boy bands, Missy Elliot, Motown, and all your favorite cheese from the 80s and 90s.

Stand By Me will always without a doubt make me ugly cry.

The Groom's men at a friend's wedding sat her down in a chair, surrounded her and lip sang to "I Want It That Way". She adored it and I hurt from laughing!

I always assumed this would be your processional.

In a world where Trump is president and evil surrounds us, it's difficult to promote even fictional evil and hatred.

I feel like there's a much more obvious Star Wars choice that we skipped over ;)



(Courtney and I used the Throne Room theme from A New Hope as the song for the wedding party to enter the reception, and that can almost pass as "serious" wedding music)

[edit]

Apparently the YouTube tag doesn't work anymore. I tried to embed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6r2w9ergP1E as my winky-face suggestion above.

A friend of mine used The Rebel Feet / End Title from ESB at their reception. The DJ/MC timed it perfectly so the main title fanfare played as the bride and groom entered.

Aaargh weddings cost so much money!

We have quotes for venue, catering, tent, and ballpark guesses for a lot of other things... and we're at the upper end of our budget. We have no real idea what a photographer, a cake, or providing beverages is going to set us back (funnily enough those are the top 3 things we want to figure out at a wedding show this weekend).

... and I'm becoming irrationally scared that said wedding show will be too girly and pink and brainwashing...

I hope the wedding show went well for you!

But yes, they are quite expensive.

It was both helpful in some unexpected ways and unhelpful in other ways. Saw a tent company that we had discounted due to expecting it to cost too much, but they don't, and their quote is likely to be what we go with.

For two people who don't drink much figuring out drink offerings is proving complicated.

And photography is starting to prove complex because we intend to forgo much of the traditional timing for the day. Which of course brings us to the elephant in the room as we aren't sure what sorts of timing /event schedule to go with anyway...!

Milestone: on Wednesday we filled in the paperwork to book our venue (and thus set the date in stone), and today the venue has confirmed our booking (the events person was on leave).

Ok now it starts to be real.

Yay! I hope it's mostly smooth sailing from here. :)

Mostly because I only know one person who did a leaning towards traditional wedding who said it was entirely smooth sailing. If that can be you, too, I want that.

I'm not sure how "leaning towards traditional" ours is, but there are certainly some traditional aspects to it.

We've now paid the deposit for the large pretty tent (even in summer one has to plan for potential rain, and if it doesn'train we still need sun protection), and are back to talking to the caterer whose quote we let lapse a couple of weeks ago...

...slowly slowly and all in a rush, at the same time!
