Wedding Planning Logistics

Happy Wedding Wednesday! 

Before we were engaged, Timmy and I would talk about the logistics of our wedding but now that we're actually engaged, we have decisions to make!

This was literally the first thing (after being told "Congratulations!" of course) that we were asked when announcing our engagement. Timmy's EAS is next summer so that throws a curveball into things. As of now, we're thinking sometime in November 2014. 

Timmy is from Michigan and I'm from NYC. We'll be living together in Chicago at the time of our wedding. I have a close knit, large family back home and he has some family in NY so we are having the wedding in NY or NJ -- and having engagement photos taken in Michigan and/or Chicago. 

Planning while in a LDR?
We will have to divide some duties and work together on others. I'll be in charge of the super girly things -- my dress and the bridesmaids dresses. He will be in charge of his tux and the groomsmens tuxes. We will confer about the color scheme, save the dates, invitations, venue and decorations... He will hopefully be on leave during the holidays(!!!) so we can get some things done then. 

Wedding Party?
We already know who our MOH (my cousin who's like my sister) and Best Man (Tim's younger brother) will be and actually celebrated with them in Vegas. My younger brother will also serve as my Man of Honor. Regarding the other members of the party, we will most likely make decisions during Timmy's leave and ask them shortly afterwards. 

We'd love to go to Bora Bora but we are open to other similar locations, as well. Our only requirement is that it be much more relaxing than not. As long as we're together I know it'll be blissful. 
to all you fellow fiancées!

  3. Yay!!! I'm wedding planning fro ma distance and apart right's a challenge! Make sure you have lists and a rough schedule to plan too! Also, Bora Bora is nice! I actually know THREE couples that have gone there for their honeymoon and loved it!

  4. The planning is sometimes the most fun! All of ours has been long distance, because our wedding is in PA. One thing that helped us was making our budget right away and then listing the top 3 most important aspects of the day (venue, photography, food, music, flowers, etc.) It helps to be able to know how much you can/want to spend on things!

  5. I am so excited for you!!! :) Happy planning!

  6. Sounds like you have your planning off to a great great! Have fun!
