We're getting married on April 27, 2007 a friday evening extravaganza. lol
We've booked our church, hall, photographer, videographer, limo, and harpist. I have my dress, shoes, veil, comb, garter, guestbook, pen, toasting flutes, favors, card box, baskets etc. I ordered the invites recently (the company keeps raising the price) and they should be here maybe at the end of May or so.

I am about to take a break from planning (studying for the NY and NJ bar exams) but when I start planning again in August, I plan to book my makeup artist and get the bridesmaid dressed. We've decided on Hawaii for the HM, I really wanted Tahiti but the wedding is expensive as it is, so we need something more cost effective!

In addition to saying what we did and haven't done (so that each post doesn't give us a heart attack) - let's discuss other things about being an April bride.

Why did you pick April..

What flowers are in season in April?

For my flowers I chose Lilac and Peony. I can't wait to see the combination. I've been looking all over the internet for it but the closest I've come across are lilac and roses.

Oh and for my church I wanted forsynthia. I see them around now but I think that they are going to be gone quickly. Many of them have already turned into leaves so I may choose something different for my church. Does anyone know if cherry blossoms bloom by the third week of April?

We chose April because we wanted a Spring wedding but May has too many events (mom's birthday, mother's day, graduations) so we picked the next best month, which is April. Also our 9 year anniversary is 2/17/07 but neither of us wanted a winter wedding since I love Spring and we're taking outdoor picture.

For flowers I am thinking hydrangeas and many lavender roses. My bouquet is mostly lavender roses but with other purple flowers. We may also have gerber daisies for the BM bouquets.

i spoke to a TA and she said not to book HM yet, to wait, because they are JUST putting out the april 07 prices and they are high, she said if you wait, the prices drop...and i know what you mean about the weather, i am very very worried too!

This is almost the same for us!

We wanted May but everything seemed booked at the RH so we went with April and hopefully the weather will be nice.

We want to do dydrangeas and lavendar roses!

My Gown
BMDresses

I still need
Florist
Limo
Video
Invitations
Favors-I picked out tho


I'm booking the videographer this week.
And will be going to the Florist in the next couple of weeks.

Did you guys order your favors yet? If so did you pay extra for them to wrap or will you do it yourself to save some $$?? I was thinking of having my BM's come over one night and everyone helping wrap.
