I had originally hoped to get a lot of wedding planning done on this little staycation of mine, but I'm running into one big problem: I can't afford any deposits until a lot later this summer. So why get my heart set on a vendor that might not be available by the time I can commit? I even had to cancel our engagement shoot because, even at a discounted price, it's too big of a splurge right now. We'll have to use our own photos for the Save the Dates, and get the professional shots for the guest book closer to the wedding date. Blah.
And in the meantime, I'm still going dress shopping with my mom in a few weeks. :) We probably won't end up buying anything that day, but at least we can do some research!
