April 23, 2006 - We had a great engagement party at The Willet House in Port Chester, NY. Despite the downpours outside, everyone had a great time and it gave our family member and friends the opportunity to meet, many for the first time.
Late May 2006 - After much deliberation, a couple of trips back and many, many hours of shopping, we have created a bridal registry and are really excited about everything we have chosen.
June 13, 2006 - My mom and I visited 3 boutiques and I tried on about 10 or 12 dresses. Then, found the perfect one at Fontana's in Scarsdale. It's absolutely gorgeous but you will have to wait for the wedding to see it.
July 13, 2006 - Funny that exactly one month after I ordered my dress we ordered all the dresses for the girls in the Bridal Party. I think we'll keep those a suprise for the wedding day too.
August 2006 - We have our bridal party finalized. It's a mixture of our family and friends from high school and college. It's definitely a fun bunch of people. Now we just have to pair them up. Any suggestions?
September 2006 - We've picked out invitaitons- that was easy, the tough part was the color scheme. With the help of our mom's and Aunt Tina, we picked out a really special invitation that we both love.
Nicole and our mom's have also started hunting for the mother-of-the-bride and mother-of-the groom dresses. Nothing really strikes us yet but shopping never hurt anyone so we'll keep looking.
In other really exciting news, my sister and Sunil got engaged so my parents will now be planning two weddings simultaneously. They haven't set a date yet though. Hopefully we'll all have a couple of months to recuperate in between.
October 2006 - We've booked the limos, my mom got her dress & the invitations came in. Things are moving along.
November 5, 2006 - Suprise! My Shower. Also, in November, after a couple of months of indecision, we finalized & booked our honeymoon. We are going to CuisinArt Resort in Anguilla & St. Maarten's La Sammana!
January 2007 - Things are moving right along. Frank picked out the tuxes, Frank's mom ordered her dress, Nicole's dress arrived along with the bridesmaids dresses. We also picked out the flowers, the favors, booked the rehearsal dinner, got the invitations ready to go out and ordered some odds and ends. Now it's just a waiting game until April 14.
April 14, 2007 - The big day... and what a day it was. The weather was great, the ceremony was beautiful, the party was a blast! We don't have the professional photos yet, but here are some that our friends and family have sent of the day - Wedding Day Photos
