HI twins!

I just started planning bout a few weeks ago but already have some things done!

I found my dress (unles I find another I like!) at David’s for $399! Half price, no alterations needed…love sample sizes!

I have my favor boxes already, 40% off at Micheals and one was on clearence!

I just got my kissing bells for 97 CENTS a box yesterday, woo!

I’m beginning to make my centerpieces now, super cheap and easy

I’m also making a wishing tree from branches in my yard…lol

I;m making a phot card box as well (shared project with my fiance)

Considering making my own veil, or buying a cheaper plain one at JoAnn Fabrics ($15) and adding the trim

Found a venue that includes a DJ, LIMO, FONDANT CAKE, FRESH FLOWERS, 10 item+ buffet, open bar,and more for $50 a person!

Awaiting to see if we can use his parents church and I’m looking for a photographer…

I have a lot done so far, just because I like to get things out of the way

  • church
  • reception venue
  • catering
  • lighting
  • flowers
  • centerpieces (DIY – in the process of buying)
  • bridesmaid dreses
  • room block
  • photographer
  • videographer
  • band
  • Save the dates (DIY)
  • Invitations (working with an etsy seller)

 

I am still deciding about my dress – but I am pretty sure this one is the winner? What do you guys think

@ginpin:very pretty! Havent gotten my dress yet…..found one at David’s on super sale (first dress I tried on, mom cried like a baby!) but goining to some ther local shops to see what’s out there. If you like it, feel beautiful in it, and willing to pay whatever price it is to only wear it once, then BUY IT! Good luck!

i’m the 12th also! so excited!

i can’t believe you girls have your dresses already! i’m waiting until may. have to get to my goal weight first! and i fight the urge everyday to stress that i’m not getting stuff done quickly, but we have so much time!

what i’ve done so far (big & small details) …

  • the venue which includes catering
  • the photographer
  • invitations, STD’s and RSVP cards have printed, addressed, and stamped. just waiting to send them out!
  • made appointments for cake testings in may (maybe i shouldn’t do this in the same month as trying on dresses!)
  • made an appointment with the rental company (the venue’s chairs are hideous!)
  • started on my bridesmaids gifts (which are personalized tote bags from an etsy seller)
  • got my dress hanger!
  • decided on favors, just have to buy them.
  • decided on flowers, just have to pitch it to some florists and see who can do it cheapest.

and let’s not forget the 10 or so wedding blogs i check every day!

happy planning bees!

I can’t believe its almost 8 months away. OMG! I am going to be married. Is anybody else feeling wierd about the 8 month mark?

So far I have everything booked except for a DJ and videographer, but I have appointments with both these vendors set-up in the coulple weeks.

My biggest stress right now is the save-the-dates. These babies were so much more complicated of a project than I originally anticipated.
