YAAAAAAAAAAAY! My mom called me this morning and was like “do you know where you will be in one year” and I started freaking out a little bit. In a good way!
We’re getting married at the university club where my father is a member. It’s gorgeous. I’m pretty stoked.
I can’t believe it is a year out. FI said last night that it is going so fast, when we started planning in earnest it seemed SO ridiculously far away, and it was just back in April when we started booking things. Time has flown!

Date twins! 🙂 The fiance got me flowers and a card with “Happy -1 Anniversary” written in it. Man, I love that nerd. It’s finally starting to sink in that this thing is happening. So far, we’ve got our venue + caterer, and we’re in contract negotiations with a photographer and DJ. All my bridesmaids are on board, and I will be dress shopping for the first time in a few weeks with my MOH.

Yay I’m August 23 as well, best date ever 😀 I’m still not over the excitement of having it because it’s the one we wanted all along, but our venue originally said they were booked on that day. We only got it thanks to a lucky cancellation. I can’t believe a year from today I’ll be married and on my honeymoon. I can’t wait!

So we’re 11 months out. September went ALARMINGLY FAST is this whole year going to be this fast? I am starting to get nervous!
I feel like I must be so behind ugh though I can’t really think of much else that I need to do right now. I’m getting a bunch done when I go home for Christmas. Not living where I’m getting married is a little irritating at this point. I would love to meet with the florist and discuss ideas, and I don’t really trust my mom to do it for me, though she is 100% the champion of all things wedding.
I feel like this is the deceptive lull before the storm, where I have all the major vendors booked and it’s too early to start fiddling with the smaller details.
I just ordered veil swatches to compare to my dress, I think I’m going to buy the veil next month.

I missed this the first time around. We’re August 23rd too. I missed it because it’s our anniversary and we were off riding rollercoasters :). I checked the weather at our venue for the last 7 years and it hasn’t rained once. I feel like I’ve accomplished quite a bit in the last month: hired our photog, found invitations, figured out some floral stuff, helped my mom find her dress, and we’re meeting with out offciant tonight.
