Who said June was peak wedding season? Here at TWB, we're all about Fall brides! This time we have Katie, who took enough time away from checking things off her to-do list to tell us how she and fiancé Andrew are gearing up for their October wedding.

Wedding colors/theme -- Purple and pink.
Bridesmaids' dresses info -- Priscilla of Boston; purple, floor-length, chiffon.
Best part of planning -- The satisfaction of checking something off the list.

Most surprising part of planning -- The generous donations of time and skill from our friends and family.
Favorite vendor so far -- Our catering manager, Kim, from Jimmy Duffy's. Calm, patient, easy-going, and good-humored... she's basically everything we could ask for.

Any Do-It-Yourself (DIY) plans -- Do "Have-Your-More-Talented-Friends-Do-It" plans count?
Honeymoon Location -- Italy? We hope! Note to self: must book honeymoon. [TWB Note: The honeymoon has in fact been booked in the time since Katie so graciously shared these details with us!]
Thanks again Katie, and best of luck with these last couple months before the big day!
