Yes..  TOO much to do! 

Here’s were I stand..

Dress- picked out, paid for, and picked up (currently laying on my old bed at my parents house!) 

Other dresses- BM’s bought dresses, making Jr BM’s & flower girl dresses…  but I want to wait a little closer to the wedding to do that!

Photos- Photog picked out, e-pics done!

Food- Caterer booked, and she makes cakes! so that is done as well!

Flowers- I have a florist…  I am trying to find some good august flower ideas that aren’t fall-ish, are inexpensive, and aren’t the same flowers I have seen at every wedding! 

Venue- booked

DJ- booked


In the next month or so I am going to be working on my reception decor details, finishing up my STD’s (some are waiting for addy’s), making my invites and hopefully FINALLY booking an officiant!

Hooray for date twins! I am getting married 30min north of Peterborough, ON. I am stressing big time! It is coming so fast and there’s sooo much to do!

Here is what I do have done:

Venue: booked (same place for ceremony and reception)

Officiant: booked

DJ: booked

Florist: booked, flowers picked out

Dress is bought… Hopefully will be arriving next month. YAY!

Bridesmaid dresses are semi-picked out. Still have one who needs to choose her dress. We are going next weekend.

Photographer: booked

Cake: Baker is chosen, just need to finalize design

EEK that doesn’t seem like I have much done. This month I want to get invite supplies ordered so we can start working on those. I also need to finalize decor options and figure out what all we are DIYing… Oh and the list goes on and on.

I’m getting hitched 8/25/12 too! Yay Date Twins!

A few weeks ago I felt like I was WAY ahead- all of our vendors are booked except cake. 

Save The Dates are sent etc…but now I ‘m feeling panicky for some reason. Maybe it’s just knowing how many little things are left to do. I’m planning to DIY the hell out of all my decor and it’s going to take a little while. I also don’t really have a color palatte. Is that horrible? I know I want neutral earthy tones but I don’t really want any specific colors. Maybe I should decide that soon?

What are your wedding colors/visions?

Also where are your honeymoons? We are thinking Croatia/Italy/France !!
