Well, that’s that! The invitations have been sent out! This is a very definitive step in the wedding planning process, we’d say.

Bridesmaid Dresses: A mission in itself

March 6, 2011 - 5:42 pm No Comments

Danielle had grand plans for her bridesmaid dresses – pick a designer and a color, and let the girls run free in terms of dress style. Well, that proved to be more difficult that originally thought, since the color green she and Andy were planning as their main color was hard to come by. This sent Danielle into a downward spiral of epic proportions, doubting her decision on the color, the theme of the day, and almost every other decision she had made up to that point. Thanks to the calm demeanor of Andy and her mom, things started to turn around.

After a trip to Macy’s, where the manager of the bridal boutique was a fantastic help, Danielle had decided on a designer (Alfred Sung), dress style, fabric, and most importantly, perfect green color. Never proving easy, though, her sister Kate wasn’t a fan of the dress style. Thankfully, the designer had a few other dresses available in the fabric and color Danielle picked out, so Kate was able to get something different. Frequently the maid of honor has something to designate herself from the other bridesmaids anyway, so Kate’s dress should do the trick.

While at Macy’s Danielle stumbled upon the perfect party dress. Since they were having a sale, she snagged that, which she’s planning to wear for the rehearsal dinner. Her mom also found her dress, so needless to say the two trips to Macy’s proved to be some of the most productive yet!

The next task at hand, however, seems somewhat daunting – flowers. Neither Danielle or Andy have a “favorite” flower, which is what every florist they’ve talked to has asked first. Not only do they not have a favorite, they really don’t know anything about flowers. So, this should prove to be an interesting experience. Thankfully, though, Danielle and Andy are managing to keep their cool, and fit in time to make these big decisions with their busy schedule.

Stay tuned!

It’s official – our Save the Dates have been mailed out… no going back now!

A big thank you to our friend Danielle for taking the photos in Disney for us, and another big thank you to our friend Nikki for taking that picture and designing an awesome card with it.

Here’s one of the photos we didn’t choose…



It’s alive!!!!

Well, here we are, www.itsandyanddanielle.com. We’re so cheesy, we know! Oh, how we know. Planning a wedding is a lot of work, but there’s a lot of fun to it as well. We decided that we wanted to chronicle both the fun parts and the not-so-fun parts so we’ve got a website going here to do just that.

We originally made a site on theknot.com, but Andy wanted more so we ended up putting together our own WordPress installation and set it up the way we wanted it.

Keep checking back here, or even subscribe to the RSS feed, if you’re into that kind of thing, and you can stay up to date on the whole process. We’re planning on posting plenty of videos of us dealing with vendors and making decisions. At this point, we’ve got a few things sorted out already. We have a venue, an officiant, a photographer, and our wedding party. You can see a few videos of us during the photographer search below.

After the wedding, we will be keeping this site and ditching most of the wedding stuff in favor of…well, we don’t know yet, but that’s exactly 14 months away as we type this. For now, you can get to know us a little better, in the event that you only know one of us. If you know neither of us, we’re not sure what you’re doing here, but you’re more than welcome.

Oh, and we have Twitter account as well for fellow twitidiots.

We chose our photographer!

We made our decision on the photography front for the wedding! Now we’ve got to work on a DJ, anyone know anyone?

Here’s Danielle signing the contract!

If you’re trying to sell your services, you really need to show up when expected

This was supposed to be the last photographer that we were going to meet with, but after taking a trip to Panera Bread to meet up, he turned out to be a no show. He later emailed us to apologize and say that he mixed up the dates in his calendar, but it was too late by then. We already weren’t too fond of him based on dealing with him via email, but I liked his work, so I was going to still give him a shot when we met with him.

Here are Danielle’s feelings on him…

Thoughts after meeting the photographer

I was a big fan of the photographer we met, but I was still a little confused by the name of his business…

Our second meeting with a possible photographer

These are our thoughts before we met with the second possible photographer for the wedding. This meeting involved a drive up to Northwest Jersey.

However, we were about 20 minutes early for the meeting…
