ajpinak, that's awesome! When is your wedding? Congrats on your wedding dress! I know how you must've felt. I felt the same way when I went wedding dress shopping and found how long it actually takes if you don't purchase a dress off the rack! I was a mess! But luckily, found something that both my fiance and I loved, and purchased it right on the spot!
I'm thinking of going with norasphotos for photography as suggested by a couple brides from this forum. she does amazing work, as well, and would be soo happy if she gives us a green signal on everything we want. Are you going with a videographer? How many people are going to be at your wedding? I still need to find a place where we can have dinner. The reception route sounds too expensive for us. We are planning on a reception in California when we get back 1-2 months later so all the people who could not attend the wedding could be there for the reception.
Please keep me in the loop if you find a great place to stay at. Were you thinking hotel/resort/condo? There is soo much to plan!
