Planning a wedding, in school full time, working full time and having so much fun with blogging- it's not an easy job but somebody has to do it.. I kid, it's really all a blessing to be able to accomplish.

I haven't done a wedding update because there really hasn't been an update at all. That changed on Saturday! We finally picked a date and left a deposit for our venue. I will share more details in the future, but for now just know that we are excited to have something set in stone. 

Jose and I had a little laugh because our file at the venue is under Vargas Wedding. We thought it would say Pena Wedding, but this will be one of the last pieces of papers with my maiden name on it..!! 

I am excited to have everything fall into place, we have a location which we fell in love with. It is absolutely stunning, by the water, with beautiful outdoor areas (hoping for fabulous weather). 

Having a date and a location set is giving some peace of mind, I know there is a deadline to get everything else rolling, but now I know when the deadline is. 

Now, to tackle this guest list. Stay tuned for that. 

Let me know in the comments section what were your tips and tricks for your guest list. I'd love to hear from brides as far as how many people were invited, how many actually RSVP etc.

We vlogged last night and spoke about our wedding update, see the VIDEO and don't forget to subscribe to FiveMinutesandUs

  1. How exciting, congrats on hammering down a date :) Can't wait to follow along!

  2. Yay for picking a date-- I almost think that's the hardest decision to make of all! We wanted to stay under 100 guests which was hard because my husband has a huge immediate family. I'm not sure if your venue has a minimum or maximum limit, but I would say to just be strict with the guest list when it comes to who you guys really want to be there.

  3. Woohoo, you have a date and venue!!! SO exciting! Can't wait to hear more!

  4. What an exciting time!!!! Congrats on nailing your date down honey! Can't wait to see more posts about your progress and then finally see your pics from the big day!!!!

  5. Vero, why "Vargas Wedding" and not "Pena Wedding" or even "Pena/Vargas Wedding"... Just curious ;)
