Just wondering what is on everyones to do list for august…we are going to mostly be working on STD’s and decor. We just did our engagement pics and they turned out great! I am currently trying to gather all the addresses I need for the Save-The-Date Cards and invitations.

For sure in August we want to: gather the rest of the addresses we don’t already know, make a final decision on invites / Save-The-Date Cards (we have found some things we like but haven’t bought any yet), set up a room block, work on our website (its going to be really simple, but I want the address on the STD), and figure out some decor things.
Specifically, I’m meeting with a florist who we will probably end up going with, want to learn more about lighting and if we should do it, find tablecloths, and most importantly, figure out something to make our wedding more personal [see below]?
We have already taken care of a ton of major things [church, ballroom which includes food/bar/cake, band, photographer, my dress, hair/makeup artist]. I’m not very creative and my overall goal for the month is to spend some time thinking about how I can inject a little more of US into everything, if that makes sense.

@musthavedietcoke: we are working on our website too because we want that on the Save-The-Date Cards also. We set up 3 different room blocks this month…most of our guests are Out of Town. Is there any hobby/ food that your fiance and you share? I am brazilian and Teddy is from the south so we are doing shrimp n grits for him and doing a brazilian drink as our signature drink for me.

We have really done nothing yet except book our venue, but there was never going to be anywhere else I would get married anyway – we are getting married and having our reception at the yacht club my grandparents and parents have been members of for decades, my parents reception was there also.
But this month we are going to try and accomplish some tasks.
- Find a band or DJ – preferably band
- Hire our photographer
- Research videographers
- Collect as many bridesmaids as I can and take them dress shopping!
Food is taken care of with the club, I bought my dress in June, and I have hopes of doing my own flowers…

My next chore to tackle is to pick out the bridesmaids dresses. A friend of mine is completing the STD’s. I hope to have them out in the next couple of weeks. We already have the venue, caterer, photographer, videographer, and my dress.

This month I have a lot that I want to get done.
- I put a deposit on my florist.
- Still trying to find my dress.
- Picking out the girls’ dresses next week.
- Going to different bakeris to try and decide.
- Experimenting with DIY centerpiece arrangments.
That’s about all I have planned right now :”]] There is just so much to do!

I just ordered STD’s, need to get addresses. That’s all I really wanted to get done this month. So I’ve completed my to do list…woohoo!
Oh, and continue to work out, eat healthy. But that’s on the list EVERY month!
