Hi ladies. We are getting so close now. half way to 2018. WOW! What’s everyone got left to to accomplish before their BIG DAY?
My wedding is April 20th so I still have a bit of time, but I still need to do the
- hotel welcome and after party bags
- bridal party hangers
- order the bridal party custome chucks (my bridal party is just my daughters)
- find an officiant
- print out the invites and put them together
- Order the Jr BM dresses and the MOH and MOB dresses
- make a seating chart
- organize transportation
- and finish paying everything off
My groom needs to work with the DJ on the music list and get his suit ordered. Other than that I think we’ve got everything else covered…we hope

Mine isn’t until December 2018 so I still have tons to do. We’ve booked the venue and I’ve narrowed down my photographer and MUA. The rest is still in planning, but with 18 months to go, I’m not too worried yet.

Just got engaged but we decided to get married on our 7th anniversary in June 2018. So… I have EVERYTHING left to do and not a clue where to start! Never been involved in a wedding before and barely remember the one I went to when I was 8.

darkwater67 : Since you know the date you want, start looking for a venue. Once you have that, you can start booking everything else. I googled free wedding planning spreadsheets until I found one I liked to use for tracking bookings, potential vendors, etc. Websites like “A Practical Wedding” and “The Offbeat Bride” can be helpful.

bippidyboppidyboo : I’m impressed that’s all you have left! Mine is January 2018 and so far I have the venue, caterer, DJ, officiant, photographer, makeup artist, Save the Dates sent, invites ordered, ordered my dress, and asked the bridal party. Still so much to do!

I’m April 14th 2018.
I have linens. DJ song list. Jewlery. Shoes. Need to make invites. Find the rest of my platters for the dessert bar. Pretty much just the random little things.
Everything big is booked and done.

I am June 2018, and I have everything still to do. I hired a wedding planner who is currently gathering a list of venues based on what we’d like, but there is one place we already really enjoy, but haven’t booked because we are waiting.
I already know the city (destination wedding), the guest list, picked out save the dates, have some ideas for decor, know that we want a dj instead of a quarter or live band, picked out some music, and a color palette, and I am baking my own cakes (I make wedding cakes for a living) but there is so much more still. Our wedding planner package basically allows us to just say yes or no, and to essentially just show up. So hopefully that makes it easier. Oh! I also already ordered a wedding dress, and we spoke to our bridesmaids and groomsmen.

I am Aug 2018. It’s a destination wedding and then an additional home reception! It’s starting to feel like 2 weddings! The only thing I’ve done is booked the wedding planner and venue for Croatia. Chose the photographer and chose the boats to take us to the island where we’re getting married.
We have provisionally booked a date for the home reception and we meet the venue co ord this weekend.
Other than that just ordered STDs. I am so anxious to get going and plan!!!!!!

I have 346 days (the Knot app counts down).
I have done:
- Rough invitation list
- Florist chosen but not officially hired
- Consult with Month of Coordinator
I have to do:
I still haven’t chosen colors which means I’m holding off on a lot of the decorative things. I thought I had chosen, but then FI went from “whatever you love, that thing sounds good” to “I absolutely hate that color.” So, new pinterest board needed.

dannij8918 : I’m June 2018 in Greece! All I’ve done is book wedding planner and venue as well. I need to book photographer soon. I’m about to send out STDs. I’m not having an at home reception because I just don’t want to deal with planning two events. Good luck to you! Are you Croatian?

344 days to go. Had to cut our guest list and now might have to change ceremony locations because the area has flood damage and they removed the gazebo 🙁 ugh.
DJ, Limo, Officiant & photographer booked
Decor is mostly done
Dress is ordered
Colours & bridal party are picked
Invitations and save the dates are on standby to order once we figure out our ceremony location
Find a florist
Book Hair & Makeup
All the other little things…not feeling very accomplished

kristin36890 : Greece wow! Which part of Greece are you getting married in? I love Greece lots!
Im not Croatian. I am from the UK. We spent 10 days in Croatia last year and fell in love with Dubrovnik. We’re getting married on a tiny island called Lokrum in the monastery. It’s only 5 mins off shore in the boat. It’s been used in scenes in Game Of Thrones but that’s not why we chose it.
Youre so right about the stress of the two events! The home event it more stressful than Croatia!!!!

We sent our STDs out last month (yay) because there are so many ppl that need to make travel arrangements . I’ve been working on free invite templates trying to get them just the way I want them. most of the diy stuff is done tho.
