Decided on/chosen (no money been put down yet!)

  • Food (my parents and grandmother are doing it!)

  • Colour scheme
  • Hair/makeup artist (getting this for free)

Not decided/done

  • music/band/dj
  • suits/grooms dress
  • bridemaids dresses (coloured decided, unsure on style)
  • transport (not having any)
  • seating plan
  • invites/paper goods

**I said ‘grooms dress’, a bit misleading. he’s not wearing a dress. I just meant stuff other than suit which he may be wearing! haha

Oh my gosh, girls, I can’t even deal – only a year to go!

My progress is as follows:

-Church booked + deposit paid

-Priest asked and accepted to marry us

-Reception venue booked + deposit paid

-4 of 5 bridal party members asked and accepted

-Catering chosen but not finalized

-Favors chosen but not purchased/assembled

Everything else is yet to be done and I’m stuck on the other side of the state for another week trying to finish up the end of my third year of medical school. Can you say lack of motivation? 🙂

Oh lord how are we supposed to pay for everything??? That was the convo FI and I had the other night when we had a finances update conversation. Is anyone else having buyers remorse when they see the price tags??

That being said, I bought my wedding dress, booked the venue (but haven’t paid for it) and meeting with a photographer (my neighbor!) next week. FMIL volunteered to design and pay for invitations. Beyond that, I’m shaking my head.

One year?? 😮 how did that happen??!

Our date is June 20, 2015.

So far we have decided on:

Venue (parents backyard for ceremony and hall up the road for reception)

Food (taco bar, cupcakes!)

my dress is purchased

centrepieces and colour scheme

photographers and homemade photo booth

invitations

 

we have ideas for:

musicians

bridal parties (still kind of up for debate)

guest list (needs to be smaller!)

games and entertainment throughout the night 

save the dates 

 

and we have no clue about:

bridemaids dresses

Specific music choices (first dance, walking down the aisle etc)

decorations

bouqets

the person who will marry us..(essential, I know!)

the thousand other things I’m sure I’m forgetting!

coffeedrinker:  FI and I don’t have a budget, the rule is ‘don’t go crazy’, it’s hard but happy with decisions so far. I haven’t got into buying the ‘little’ bits which suddenly start to add up!

Dreambee:  I have very little idea about any of the details are going to look at the moment, visions in my head aren’t reality! I do know people getting married before me with less planned than me though.

PenguinLove: When i first got engaged i was the same too, I had very little idea’s. Now that we have been engaged for six months i picked up idea’s here and there.

Weddingbee has been a great help honestly. So many ideas 

I have all these idea’s and i feel like it’s too early to purchase certain things. I knew that my first purchase was going to be my dress!!

Dreambee:  I’ve been collecting tea cups for my place names, it’s just a vision I had for a while, a small touch perhaps but it’s taken a while to collect enough of them for it to work. I know what you mean, sometimes it’s just too early to do stuff. I’ve chosen the dress but not ordered it yet, feels too early tbh!

this is what I have in mind:
