Wedding for August 2023

Can I start with WOW. Once my fiancé and I moved our wedding date by a year to 2023 instead of 2024 I have been working non-stop for a month getting ahold of vendors for our wedding and booking them.

We are doing a micro-wedding (30 guests invited) in Banff, Alberta. I ended up being able to book our officiant, wedding planner, ceremony location and photographer (all with Shotgun Wedding - an amazing company), the dinner/reception (Three Bears Brewery & Restaurant), flowers, rentals and hair & make-up. I managed to get a tasting for what seems like the only wedding cake baker in Banff area and she books a year out.

Because of how busy it is for next year already all vendors suggested booking as soon as possible. But now that is all done and I feel kind of bored! I did all the fun stuff as soon as I can because that's what they suggested and now I got nothing left.

Pretty much last thing to do this summer is to get my wedding dress and send out Save the Dates.

Since I have tried on so many dresses already, I know exactly what I am looking for. Now its just waiting for the right one!!!!

    That's so exciting! I was the exact same. Since we are doing an elopement style wedding, we would not be getting any golden hour photos so I found a photographer who is amazing and booked her for Saturday night to get some photos in Banff. I am so excited for these, to put back on my dress and get some gorgeous photos!

    I have not said yes yet, I am too scared too because I said yes before and 2 months later decided against it! But this time, I have everything booked and know my colors and theme of my wedding so I have an idea of what I want to wear now! It's just finding the right one.

    We are getting married in Sept 2023 and we have booked all the big stuff too. I was afraid we would miss out on great vendors as everyone is now planning after being shut down for 2 years. I just said YES to my dress last week too as they told me 7-8 months to come in. I'm now enjoying planning the details now that the big stuff is out of the way...so many things to consider!! Enjoy the journey!!

    It's so nice to have all of those big things done! Just wait, you won't be bored the last few months before! Now that my fiance and I are less then 2 months away, it's all of the little things getting completed.

    Congratulations! That is so exciting that you have all of the important vendors booked.

    I am going to the Three Bears Brewery in Banff next weekend for dinner as part of my bachelorette, I love it there! Sounds like you are going to have an amazing and beautiful wedding. Smiley smile

    I did last October when my brother and his wife were visiting, we always said that that's how it needed to be done haha because they are brutally honest and i got the most honest and best feedback

    I also have a little list of things I need to purchase, like a wedding welcome sign, guest board, cake topper, etc.

    But now I don't have to worry about anything because all the big things are done.

    Now it is time to say yes to the dress Smiley smile

    We are doing the exact same now! Except for the cake, but we have our tasting on August 29th. If we like it enough, will probably walk right back and book!

    Now it is time to say yes to the dress! Which I am so excited about! Have you done it yet?

    Oh I understand that too well. I thought I was an eager bride planning almost two years for a wedding and I am glad I did not listen to the suggested timelines because I think I would have been screwed. Found the perfect venue and she made me change my date about 4 times before I could get a date I wanted, we originally wanted October 14th but went down to September 30th which wasn't a huge deal to us. Then trying to find photographers and other stuff was getting to the point of slim pickings. Now I get to enjoy my summer and slowly get things ready, buying things here and there, enjoying the process.
