I'm getting married Memorial Day (yes, like 10 weeks away!), and right now I'm just about freaking out over where I am going to put all the guests. Working on getting group hotel rates, but most of the places I like don't have the rooms! Aarrggh!
When are you getting married and what keeps you up at night?
I want to get married 07.11.15 and finding something for my budget at myrtle beach will be hard on a budget of 1500 for wedding and reception
we are getting married 9-10-11 and have still not found a back up venue in case our outdoor beach wedding gets postponed due to heavy winds or a hurricane. The rental company will not put up the tent if the weather is too strong. Does anyone know of large halls for aproxiamately 170 people?
Getting married in May 2012 in Clagary Alberta. Having a difficult time finding a ceremony venue to fit 100 guests and not a church.
I'm getting married in a year but I am trying to find a place to have my reception and I have no idea where to look anyone have a idea of affordable places for a reception

I am getting married June 11, 2011. However, my biggest worry right now is find a place to have our reception at a reasonable price, a photagrapher and a DJ.
I am getting married July 15, 2011 and my biggest worry is that everything is going to go over budget and that means that me and my groom to be will not be living together for a few months. We are trying to make sure that we get a wedding in and right now we live in seperate locations and are trying to move in together but at this point we are looking at a huge price to do everything so close up. The budget is $6000 and idealy we would like for everything to come under $4,000 but it doesn't look that way. The only other thing we know to do is push the wedding from July to November and double the budget. Huge worry right now!
We're getting married in 6 months (the 188 day countdown Eventective popped up was the first one I've seen for us and it definitely put it in perspective). My fear is that we'll run out of food or that our guests will have trouble getting from the ceremony to the reception.
For Guest on 11/1 looking for a photographer. I'm doing a cut and paste from what I just suggested to Alishia for a photographer:
My preferred photographer travels and has over 22 years experience in weddings, models, family portraits, architecture, etc. He's been published as well. He is amazing, people love him, reliable, and offers great deals. I refer him first to all of my couples and have even used him for a photo shoot of my own for a modeling contest (first time in my lfie I liked how I looked in pictures). While you are looking, check his work and talk to him. You will not be sorry you did.

I'm getting married Feb 25, 2011
My biggest worry is making sure we get a photographer that knows what they are doing. I hate to pay tons of money for a mediocre photog. The photos are the everlasting memories and I want them to be amazing. I'm doing an out of state wedding so it's hard when you can't physically go speak to them and see their work.

Getting married in 2011 and my biggest worry is finding the best photographer that I can. I want someone that has an artist's approach, one that can capture the beauty of my day and almost the future of our lives together...maybe they are out there!
Congratulations! First thing you need to do is determine your budget. This is your meter for everything else. Venue, decor etc. If you have flexibility great, but I have found most couples do not and staying in budget is very important (you don't want to start out in debt)! Next make 3 lists...have to have; we want, but can do without; and finally if we have extra money let's do it.
So now you have budget, an idea of guest count, and your lists. Pick your date and search for your venue. If you are flexible on your date you may be able to get discounts with venue and vendors especially for a weekday wedding. After your venue, the rest falls into place (catering if not done through venue, DJ, photographer etc.). If you can hire a planner at least for guidance, I suggest you do so. He/she will help keep you on track and under budget!
I have a Couple's Checklist on my site, feel free to download it. This will give you ideas as you continue planning!
If you have questions, email me directly and I'll point you in the right direction (no charge).

I'm getting married in 6 to 7 months and i don't even know where to begin!! Please help
Hi, if anybody needs floral advice please get in touch I would be glad to assist in any way possible
My fiance and I are wanting to get married July 24th 2011. We don't yet have a place and time but we're trying to get one as soon as possible. But the neither of us have a lot of money at the moment and i want to have a nice wedding and im afraid i won't be able to with not having a lot of money.
Did you have a contract? or had a deposit to hold your date? That could be a legal matter. You could always right a letter to the owner about your horrible situation. Any good business owner will try to correct the situation. Maybe you can get another date with at a discount rate, or complimentary extras.

We were supposed to get married on OCT the 16th 2010. I got a phone call two days before my wedding i have planned and worked so hard for and was told they booked the place a year ago. we had to cancel the whole thing. We are still very upset and sickened with the place or should i say the owners
My fiance and I are getting married Dec 31st of this year. Yesterday, the individual who was going to marry us, flaked. I'm a little mad about the whole thing, to say the least. Now I have about a month and a half to find someone to marry us. It's in south central PA, so if anyone has any contacts, I'd greatly appreciate the help.

Im getting married mach 2011 in jacksonville fl and my biggest problem now is to find reception place not to far from my church in 32209. I need help. Thanks
My daughter is getting married, Oct. 2011 and I can not find a place to do it all for less than $20,000.00. Any suggestions???? We are in Portland, Oregon Metro area.
Finding a venue that wont take an arm and a leg. I have inquired several places and they want almost $100.00 per person, give me a break! I think a reasonable amount would be around $35.00 per person, but then again thats just me. I'm still looking for a good venue so I can book it, my wedding is next September but this is the biggest and hardest part of it all. Any suggestions out there? I'm looking in the Orlando area or Lake County. Thanks for reading.
Hi everyone! Congrats on all the weddings///! I'm renewing my wedding vows on May 27,2011, it will be our 10 year anniversary. We never actually had a wedding so we want this one to be a little more traditional and we want to be able to invite all of our friends and family this time (approx 100 guests). We have a very small budget around $4K. Is this even possible??? We know that we want an evening wedding, we already have a few things taken care of: officiant (FREE), invitations (I'm making), DJ (I use to work for radio) and we have a photographer (FREE). We want a magical night of a short ceremony and a great celebration afterwards. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

We are getting married on June 11th 2011 and we are having a hard time finding a church to get married in. Any suggestions?
I am just starting to plan my biggest thing is that i want to get married at the beach but from a catholic priest so far my church priest doesnt not do ceremony out of the church : ( so for now that is my biggest worry!
I am not getting married until next year but my biggest worry right now is securing the venue. I am getting married in Houston, TX and I hear that September is a popular wedding month. Why does this have to be sooo difficult and why is everything costing an arm and leg. It's like they want you to go in debt to get married. I don't see how that is going to make the start of a new life happy to know you're paying for it for years if you charge it...
I am getting married next september and I am really worried about getting my dream wedding in my small budget.
Where are you located? Where were you trying to go for your honeymoon? Have you thought about registering for your honeymoon so your guests can pay for it? I'm an Event Planner as well as a Certified Travel Agent.
Our wedding is due to be held sometime within the first week of April, 2011. As you can tell, based on the fact that we've yet to book a venue, we're in the very early stages of the planning proccess. We are hoping for an inexpensive gathering, while upholding a certain magic. Initially, we had planned to wed in Las Vegas, which would have cost us $2500 for the package, which included everything from food, drinks, photography, and wedding and reception hall. We hope to not exceed that limited now that we plan to wed in St. John's, NL. Canada. If anyone has any suggestions on ways to save money, we welcome it. Thanks!
