@Waitingbee57: I love being super organised too!! Well done on getting it all happening. Fantastic. I’m a year out as well and trying to do as much as possible ASAP!

@Charbelle: My thoughts are the more done before next year the less stress on us throughout the year. I am a bride on a budget as well and I have found working with vendors early gets you a lot of deals.

Way to go for being organized! I’m pretty close to where you are in my planning too. I’ve got venue, dress, photog, dj, shoes, favours, bridesmaids bouquets, card box. Some DIY projects going on but nothing finished except for my shoes and putting brooches on wires for my bouquet. Its so much fun! Also, i have bridesmaid dresses picked out but not ordered yet.

Hey date twin!
i’m with you! We have practically everything done. My mom makes fun of me that I won’t have anything to do next year – EXACTLY! I plan on sipping champagne and enjoying my wedding week instead of finishing favors or putting together centerpieces!
The only things we have to do are find suits and I’m going to see pocket squares for the groomsmen and the dads. The ladies, including myself, all have their dresses. The future inlaws have already chosen a RD place, and we booked the hotel at the same time. Found a farm to pick wild flowers for the bouquets, etc. I do miss having projects to do, but I am relieved! How do you feel? I’ve been engaged for over a year now, so it feels as if I want it now, but I love the relaxed schedule. Anyone else with a long engagement And getting married October 2014?

We are date twins, but I’ve done nowhere near as much as you! We have our venue/photographer/videographer/dj and wedding planner. We are still working on all the rest and will be for some time. Going dress shopping for the first time in a couple of weeks though!

I have the church, photographer, dress, one of my bridesmaids is doing the cake (she’s super talented) and another bridesmaid is doing my hair.
Bridesmaids will go dress shopping in March.
