If its a park, food will probably be buffet style which is AWESOME. Ive found that if you go to your favorite lunch spot and and see if they have a catering menu, it's MUCH cheaper than caterers Smiley

I'm not a woman, I'm a force of nature.

Wow- first off congrats!  Grin  My heart goes out to you as I am a Air Force fiance trying to do a wedding on short notice.

I agree that setting the date & finding the site for ceremony & reception is key to start, plus ordering the dress & having time for fittings can take the most time. Other than those items, I'd think everything else can be done within your timeframe- especially if you're flexible in what you want. For those things you NEED to have & have your heart set on- start there... for example if you want a band, see what their availability is.. that may also influence your date. I've also been told to not go cheap on the photographer as that is one of the few things that are for a lifetime (other than your soon to be husband of course!)

Good luck planning & keep us updated!

Not to worry...You can do this and it will be wonderful!
A couple of random ideas... If you want pictures of all the guests, station someone with a camera by the Guest Book and have them take pictures of the guests (I did that at a shower and it worked out great).
As a Guest Book, if you can find a coffee table book that maybe features the park or maybe the town in which you are marrying, then use that as a guest book. Folks can simply choose a page they like and write a short message of congratulations and sign....Sort of like signing a high school annual. It is a good idea to have the book opened to a good example of what you want and also to post some brief instructions. If you have someone doing the Guest Book and pictures, the little ones aren't likely to mess it up, although what they may write or draw will be precious in the years to come.
If you having bridesmaids, you might give them a color and ask them to buy a dress in that color that they like and have them each wear their own personal styles... I have seen that several times and it is beautiful...
Best wishes for a long and happy life together...that is the most important thing, and if you remember that you day will be perfect!

I was just gonna suggest some Valium for the panic attacks! Smiley

Make a list, stick to it, and don't procrastinate.  I'm sure I'd be done planning my wedding already if I wasn't such a put-it-off-til-tomorrow person.  Good luck!
