Hi!  My fiance and I have had such an up and down roller coaster wedding planning experience so far!  We have been double booked for our venue with another couple, and they put them in place of us so we lost our date!  They were completely booked up for March2013 Saturday's, so we settled for a Sunday with lot's of comps from the very appologetic venue manager!  So she made that up to us... we fired our wedding planner as he took over 2 weeks to get back to me with a price quote for a few vendors.  We have decided to do a DIY wedding to save money to go toward the honeymoon... and on top of all that, we're both active duty Air Force and are expecting orders to move any day now!  If that happens, we will end up planning a destination wedding as we have already secured our venue with a nonrefundable deposit and will have to fly back in to San Antonio for our wedding. AHHHH!!!  But we're staying positive and doing what we can.  Let's just hope that nothing with my bridal gown goes wrong... we flew our mom's and ourselves out to New York to get my dress from Kleinfeld.  It has to be made, shipped to New York for approval from Kleinfeld, then sent to me here in Texas... only so much can go wrong with that!! So we're staying positive!  How's your planning going? lol
