Lets see I’ve been engaged since August 2012, so I have my, venue, ceremony site, dress, flowers for the ceremony, my decorater is coming up with plans right now, I have all my jewlery, cake done.  Now that I think about it all I have to do is come up with center pieces, the bridesmaids dresses and finishing touches on everything but the big stuff is done 🙂 I guess long engagements aren’t that bad lol.

FutureFong:  7.11.15 bride here too!! SO excited!! I have 2 appointments to try on dresses 11/1! Venue, catering, floral, dj, photographer are all done! 

We just need to figure out cakes, honeymoon and all the little personal details. 

I still wish we could have a photobooth or videographer, but I don’t think it’s in our budget. I’ll see if I can work it out!

prettyinpink11:  same date here!

Venue, photog, DJ/photo booth, limos, dress-alldone. Yay! All I really have left is flowers, cake and linens. FI is responsible for himself and his guys, and my girls just need to get their dresses. 

I’m so excited!

Lol I’m 7/11/15 and I totally missed it.  Geez 9 months left, I gotta get going on some things… we got engaged Dec 2013 and it seemed so far away back then.

Well, I got a venue, food, photographer, and a dress. When’s a good time to book offciants?

7-11-15 bride here too!

 

Just by coincidence, we got our engagement photos done this past Saturday, 10/11/14. Obviously that means we have a photographer. We also have a venue, groomsmen, and i know which dress i will be buying this coming weekend!

FutureFong:  My FI LOVES the slurpee anniversary thing! It kinda fits into how our relationship is though… My mom started dating someone around the same time we did (they’re already married) and on their 3 month anniversary my mom got a diamond necklace.. when I told me FI (then-bf) he said he’d take me to Taco Bell and even get me a Pepsi (jokingly). But sure enough for 3 months we had been tailgating and went to a football game and on the way home got Taco Bell and had a candle-lit picnic in my living room. 

We also joke about making a coupon or note with our save the dates for a free slurpee on our wedding day.. just mention our wedding! 

I really can’t believe how close it keeps getting and how real it keeps getting!! Also, I am terrified about dress shopping soon. Scared I won’t like how anything looks on me or only be interested in dresses out of my budget!

prettyinpink11:  I’m sorry! I didn’t see this reply until now.

I actually chose a huge color scheme. I pretty much went with shades of teal,blue, pewter and a light pink. I was more interested in matching my beachy colors with flowers that are available locally to me in the summer. I really wanted to keep my flower budget low, so Im staying away from anything too specific. I’m also staying away from a specific theme. Just color and vibe is important to me.

FI and I are all about relaxing in the summer 🙂

TXbride2015:  don’t be scared! I went thru it too. I have a strange shape (I kind of look like a 2×4), so I KNEW it was going to be awful. All that ended up happening, was the styles I thought for sure would look didn’t. But, when I tried on the dress I bought, I cried (yup, I’m lame as hell). And as a bonus, it was exactly in my budget.
