Ah, September 2nd, and the beginning of the Labour Day long weekend; here we are at the unofficial end of summer. I know, the summer season runs until September 20th, but let's be real - once school starts, summer is dunzo! Also, Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte is a harbinger of autumn and they're available as of now. So there's that. Darn you pumpkin spice everything! As the calendar changes over to September, we also say goodbye to the official summer wedding season. There'll be more weddings as 2016 winds down, no doubt, but those frenzied weekends booked up by sunny and carefree ceremonies and receptions will taper off, and for couples who have become engaged this year, a change of season might usher in the time they start planning upcoming nuptials. So for all the couples out there who are about to dip their toes into the wedding planning pool, congratulations! And can we pass along a friendly piece of advice? Here's a timely article to welcome you to one of the most exciting/stressful/overwhelming/amazing/heart-pounding/fun periods of your life - the planning of the biggest party of your life to-date! No pressure? You bet! If you need a cheat sheet and list of mantras for the next few months to turn this hope into a reality, this would definitely be it!
Now, enjoy this last summer hurrah! Have a safe and joyous long weekend!
Wishing you a day as limitless as you are~
Lisa and April
