Wedding Wednesday: Photographer AND Save the Dates

I have a piece of advice for any newlywed beginning their wedding planning: Relax. Everything WILL fall into place just the way it should.

That's how I live my life - so why wasn't I planning my wedding the same way? Who knows. But I am now. No more stress. Even though there's less than 5 months away, it'll be ok. I'm taking my time with some decisions because when I know it's right - I'll know

I was trying to decide between all the potential wedding photographers. Which wasn't an easy task! Most of them started to seem like they were the same and I was deciding between which package I get more out of versus the beautiful moments the photographer comes across. This was until I found MY photographer - the perfect one for us! We gave our deposit over the weekend so I can truly say he is "mine!" 

I am SO excited. Both V & I feel so comfortable with him and are so sure he is going to capture our wedding perfectly. We're doing an engagement shoot next Wednesday - he has some creative and fun ideas up his sleeve!!

Save the Dates
I've been in a debate for a few weeks now - to do save the dates or to not. I decided to do them - just a 2012 version of save the dates - online! I know some of the older people won't be happy with this but I truly wanted to not only save money (and trees!) but also give people as much time as possible to plan.

I took out our last names & the city we're getting married in - so don't think there are those big white spaces on the actual card!

Next On My List
Right now, I'm searching crazy for a band (small jazz ensemble) and an officiant. I hope to tackle these two tasks within the next couple of weeks!

After I get these done - then on to the fun stuff! (Table decorations, favors, etc.)

As always, if you have any advice you'd like to share - please do! ox
