Off to California!

So in a few minutes I’ll be heading to the airport on my quest to find the perfect reception venue for me & my honey.  My mom and close friend (also wedding coordinator) are joining me on my travels.  I’m getting more nervous and excited about how real this is becoming!  I can’t wait.  I plan on taking our video camera with me so I can bring back our options. Mark has to work so we’re planning another trip out there in September and are scheduled to take our engagement pictures then. I’ve designated Wed. July 15th as the day we have to make a decision on the reception venue.  I have 5 appointments scheduled with reception venues for Thursday & Friday and will be attending Bride World (bridal expo) on Saturday.  I think the planning will all start coming together once I get back!  I’ll have updates on Monday!

Bride World Here I Come!

Since I’m planning a California wedding from Florida, I’m planning my first trip out there mid-July to check out venues, vendors, and more!  Thanks to my lovely cousin Christen for mailing me a Brides Southern California magazine, because I just found out that I’ll be there when the Brides World, a bridal expo will be in town (July 11-12)! I registered early online so I’ll get a $2 discount off my entrance fee at the door for me and my family who tags along! Got to save all the money I can! Two dollars will go a long way! This is exciting because I have NO clue about any of the local vendors as far as flowers, music, caterers, bakeries, etc. go, so hopefully I’ll take away a ton of ideas!
