    I'm thinking of doing white/coral, or white/blush, with a vintage feel. Not sure exactly how i'm going to blend that in. I went dress shopping unexpectedly (i was in sweatpants, no makeup, and had my glasses on) with my mom a few weekends ago "just to look". My original plan was to pay this lady on Etsy to make a replica of the dress I thought I wanted. Well, once I got THE dress on I couldn't take it off and had to buy it. Ohhhh well, going to have to save money somewhere else.

     

    I haven't really figured out any of the other details yet, though I'm trying to decide what I want to do for DIY centerpieces bc there is no way I'm paying >$200 per table. Sent my save the dates out friday!!!!!

     

    How about you, how far into planning are you guys?!

     

     

    Welcome!!   How is planning going?  Great to hear from another January bride :)

    Planning is soooo slow. I am impatient. I like everything done..yesterday...lol

    We have booked the time and place but we had issues with our trip provider. We werent happy with some things and now we want to switch ...what a headache.

    I started oot bags...love finding deals.

    My invitations were sent out about a month ago via email.

    How about you ladies? (and any men out there doing the planning?)

      I'm getting married January 25, 2014 in Naples, FL. It's not as far as a destination on most here - but it's a destination for me :)

          Hi brides of Jan 2014!

          Congrats!  I loved UMass's dress finding story! So cute!  The weather here in January is generally warm and sunny with water temps around 77F.  Very swimming-friendly!  We occassionally get some North winds come through that can be a little chilly but make for some great sleeping temperatures! Just remember to bring a light sweater out at night.

            I am doing purple too!...haven't decided the other colour yet. Finally bought the bridesmaid dresses last week. Early but we got them for a fantastic price...

            Welcome!!   How is planning going?  Great to hear from another January bride :)

            Awwww 25 is also my ideal number. I felt so bad doing a destination wedding at first, because I know some can't go, but we might have a little reception in Michigan (where some family and friends are) after we get back. Haha we invited a lot, and a lot we know for sure won't even come, but didn't want them to feel left out. I don't think I know 137 people hahahaha ;) ;) 

             

            I am so glad you found the dress you wanted. I just bought my dress on Saturday...eeeepppp I wasn't going to spend much on a gown because I wanted to do Trash the dress but I ended up falling in love with something too and had to get it...I agree with spending money elsewhere :) I tried on a lot of dresses and soooo knew this is what I had been looking for. Oh my gosh...the centerpieces are redonkulous!! I couldn't even believe it! We sent save the dates out today...oops :/ Are you doing invites?

            I am the same exact way!!! I am starting the oot bags soon as well. Any idea what all you're putting in them? Did you do save the dates as well?

            Of course  This is for all January ladies...I find planning a lot easier if we can all help each other with ideas, etc. :) Congrats and I also feel behind...oh my goodness..I can't believe it's already half way through April, time is ticking on by!

            How fun! We almost were going to try to get married in the US...it makes things a little easier I am sure. That will be pretty! Love those colors...I haven't seen too many people post pictures of those colors yet! We are going to do Coral and Navy. I have seen lots of really interesting OOT bags. Have you been on orientaltrading.com? They have lots of little things and it may give you some ideas. I love the "oh sh*t kits" which include: aspirin, sunscreen, tips for a hangover, chapstick, pepto bismo, shout wipes, gum or altoids, and band aids, etc....I have seen some people put disposable cameras in theirs, cups, mugs,sewing kit, pen and paper, coozies, coasters, kleenex, bath poofs (that's what I call them LOL) Hope that helps a little!
