I am new this forum.. I was originally in the July 27th, 2013 – but I switched everything up about a month ago. Changed the venue, theme (sort-of), and a few other things.. Lost $500 on the venue, but all-in-all – a good change.
So… I am getting married on July 6, 2013 now at a Hunt Club – yes with deer antler chandeliers, in a cabin-type venue, with an outdoor ceremony, and prop-guns for our wedding pictures. Still country-rustic themed, but with a little backwoods to it as well.
I have.. and I feel so accomplished!
- Wedding Dress – scheduled for alterations.
- Bridesmaid dresses ordered – Should come in April.
- DJ booked.
- Wedding bouquet underway – as well as crosages, bridesmaid bouquets, etc…
- Tux ideas – Just need to wait until the date to get them squared away; yes, they are camoflage! 🙂
- Officiant booked; with several readers in the ceremony.
- Photographer booked.
- Guest List has been finalized! Yeah, that was fun…
- Save the Dates going out Saturday!
- And much more…
I still need to do:
- Work on ideas for the actual wedding invitations.
- Set up a food tasting for the venue.
- Order the centerpieces – a lot of this stuff is DIY, so that takes time.
- Take engagement pictures (we are doing this in April for better weather reasons).
- Finalize songs for the wedding; reception and ceremony.
- Wedding bands.. Which should be fun seeing as my engagement ring is a split band, so your simple wedding ring won’t work. I think we need to customize it. Fun… 😉
- Figure out honeymoon stuff…
So, I think that’s about it.. I’m sure there’s more. THERE IS ALWAYS MORE! Eeek!
Talk soon, 2013 Brides!

@dovelovesfalcon: Thanks! I think it will be pretty awesome too; if I could just get these wedding nightmares to go away – are you having those too!?
In re: to the dress alterations – You are probably right – It is a little early; but I wanted to get it out of the way. You go in for several fittings – but wow, was that an expense I hadn’t accounted for! I paid almost $350 for the alterations. So, yeah.. save up!

@SSmars: haha yes!! i actually just responded to another post on here about wedding nightmares.. i keep having ones where i am barefoot walking down the aisle! i also had a few where i am running soooooo late and no one is sitting in the seats when i finally get to the ceremony.. it’s just the officiant, my FI, and our parents. haha.
$350 in alterations?! YIKES! i should get that out of the way soon.

July 6 too!! We were almost July 27th also but the place didnt have the time we wanted available. So far I have done-
- Wedding dress bought
- STD sent out
- plane tickets bought
- RSVP cards filled out (sending invites soon DW)
- Ceremony, Caterer, photographer, reception site booked
- Wedding party gifts picked out (that took FOREVER)
looking at flowers and centerpieces now while listening to the ceremony song list the coordinater gave me to pick from for entrance/ exit etc. multitasking!!
I still feel like i have so much to do! I keep being told “you still have 5 more months” eh not really! its a DW wedding we have to have everything done atleast a week before and cant get some things until we get there. YIKES!!
