    That is what I plan on doing as well! Seems like the easiest way to keep everyone posted and up to date on anything too! And why not save money where we can...lol:)

          I agree with not having RSVP's. We set up a website as well and I put my phone number on the back of our save the dates. The family members that aren't tech savvy have been calling to let me know if they can come or not. It's saving me a ton!

              My date is April 20 and luckily the rates actually dropped april 15. I was worried the rates would still be at peak due to Easter but I guess it is far enough out

                    So since this weekend was friends and family at Macy's we we're able to get my FI and groomsmen suits at a fraction of the price.  So excited!  We didn't realize this especially of those who want their party to wear a suit, the light fabrics are out now.  If you wait till next year it may be late.  Not to mention I don't have to worry one thing crossed off the list.  As part of their gifts we are giving the groomsmen ties and custom converse which they will be wearing the day of the wedding. I found the BM dress but it's a little early for that to order.  It takes 3 months so by September we will order them.  In the process of making invitations/ ordering supplies.  Can't wait to post the planning journal. Still more things to do.


                    How is everyone doing with their planning?


                    Less than a year to go April brides!!

                      We haven't started working on attire yet. FI's brother might be deployed during the wedding (we find out next month), so we're waiting as long as possible.


                      As far as invites, they're pretty much designed, but we need to order cardstock and start pu tting them together, since it will take forever I'm sure!



                      The project I'm working on right now is my brooch bouquet, which I'm so excited about! I've been ordering brooches, real touch flowers, supplies, etc. Here is my inspiration pic from Fancy Pants Weddings (mine will be white roses/callas, with turquoise ribbon on the stems):
