We made a deposit at our venue. We’re getting married July 16, 2011!
It’s a good feeling.
Also, I love the event manager there. He’s the most laid back person on the planet. We asked if having a vegetarian option counts as one of our menu choices, and he said, “No way, we’re not going to charge you for having a few weird friends.” We asked about spaces where we could have a yichud, and our wedding planner started to explain that it is a time for the bride and groom to have a moment of peace, and Collin interjected, “I thought it was for banging,” and the event manager said, “Yeah that’s where my brain went too. I wasn’t going to say anything, though.”
Another highlight: as we were walking out, Collin and I kept hugging and kissing, and the hostess said, “Are you getting married?” I pretty much shouted “YES!” back at her.

Setting the date makes it so real and concrete…enjoy the ride!

Hurray!!!!! I was so thrilled when we booked our venue too, I floated on that feeling for a couple days at least.
I did in fact laugh out loud at the event manager’s characterization of vegetarian friends, haha.

Yayyyyy for you!
I’m totally going to stop reading back through your blog now… maybe.
Also… banging is essential post-ceremony, is it not?

I have been reading back through your blog after clicking here from another wedding blog.
Congrats! Isn’t choosing a date/location hard? I am sincerely hoping that that’s the toughest decision we have to make. Our date is the same as yours, btw., in Vermont!
