Getting married in 6 months!!!

  1. I'm getting married Oct 20th!!!! Woo hoo! But in the meantime I'm still working full-time, taking physiology this summer while studying for for 2 tests (mental health and maternal/child) through Excelsior that will clep me out of a semester of the bridge program at my college, and starting my bridge class in August. My bridge class will be over 2 weeks before the wedding but I want to have most of my decisions completed by the end of the summer.
    I'm wanting to get one of those wedding planning notebooks but there's so many out there. Any suggestions????? This is why I originally wanted to elope!!!!

    Congratulations!!!!

    Can't answer your question as I've never been married but I still wanted to congratulate you.

    Might check out www.amazon.com and read their reviews before you hit the bookstore.

    Congratulations!!! Both of my dds bought looseleaf notebooks with file pockets so they can cut out pictures of what they like to show the florist, gown shop etc.. t They use those to divide the different sections The expensive ones are nice but not really necessary The Knot.com has some helpful planning tools as well. Good Luck!! Mary

    congrats and good luck. Just one bit of advice though. Don't go for perfect. Perfect days don't happen, no matter how hard you try and if you are aiming for the perfect wedding day, when something, no matter how small, goes wrong, you're set up for disappointment and upset.

    Your wedding day is but one day. Aim for fun, aim for memories. And aim for a wonderful, wonderful marriage. Best of luck.

    Congrats! You can check out Michael's, Jo-Anne's or other Craft shop for those books. I know they have a wedding row in these stores (invitations, announcements, picture books, etc.)

    LOL! Sounds like fun! Does that mean I get a virtual stripper? Cause that's about the only kind of stripper I'll ever have!
