eek! I have nothing done! OK I have bought my dress, booked the venue and ordered postcards for my save-the-dates but I am severly procrastinating. I keep thinking, "I have a year". No – I HAD a year when I got engaged… now it’s 8 months… time to get my behind in gear! (This is the same for literally getting my behind in gear to look good at my wedding, so I guess it’s off to the gym I go) 

What things should I have done at this point? Is it to early to harass my coordinator about flowers and such?

our wedding is 8 months from yesterday. it’s slowly starting to get closer.

aloweha: it’s not too early to start discussing flowers or booking any other vendors that you want. the sooner the better, so that you have as many options as possible when booking people. right now i have the venue, florist, and dress and before the end of the week deposits will be going to our baker, dj, photographer, and officiant.

@erindesmar: me too! I keep going back and forth on colors, favors, all the little decisions. 

@lindsy: Thanks for the heads up all about booking vendors – I think I need to send my coordinator an email and get things rolling! I’m nervous because I won’t be able to meet with any vendors (Hawaii wedding, planning from Sydney) so I just have to trust that who she says is good, actually is good.

I can’t believe that it is 8 months away. We started with 2 years, so you would think that we would have more done than we do… MUST FIND FLORIST AND OFFICIANT… GAHHHH. 🙂

 

Happy Planning

Wooo 8 months!  Time is flying.  I’m not too stressed at this point but I know in 3-4 months I’m going to start freaking out.

I am 8 months from today! yay! All I have is venue/caterer, florist, and officiant. I’m deciding between 2 photogs and 2 bands though, so I think I’m okay? Hope so! And I know I need to buy a dress–but it’s so hard!!

NYbride- you might want to get on the dress hunt soon.  I went at the end of January and the boutique I got my dress from said the dresses are taking about 6 months to come in.  If you’re going somewhere like David’s where they have a lot more stock than a boutique, you are safe now, but if you’re looking into boutiques you should get hunting ASAP!

Yea for october brides!   I have less than 8 months to go!  Ladies I think those who don’t have a dress, flowers, etc. you should start looking soon.  I wanted this florist and had a consultation with her a year before our wedding (october) and then she calls me the day before the consultation and tells me another bride booked the date already!  And mine is on a sunday.  so get going ladies!

I know about dress shopping! How did you guys know you had "the one?"  I did go this past weekend to Kleinfeld and another boutique. They said I should do it within the next couple of weeks, but weren’t being too crazy about it so hopefully I’m ok. I am just the worst decision maker ever, though, so that’s my problem!
