Any other bee’s feel like the holidays are starting to fly by?! I’ve sworn to my FI not to start the full force planning until after Christmas and remembering how upset I was about waiting. Now I’m starting to FREAK that Christmas is just around the corner and I will have so much to do!
Engagement pictures will be during Christmas.
Flowers booked! (My mothers best friend is our florist)
DJ booked! (Mom’s friend from high school)
Cake booked! (Moms client is a baker)
Ordering dress in December.
Bridesmaids and Groomsmen are decided on!
I’m making the invitations myself so I will be giving myself PLENTY of time to get them done!
Where are you in planning?! Any date twins? – September 12!!

Oh my gosh! I thought I was getting ahead of myself by starting to plan so soon, you have so much accomplished!! You are so lucky to have some inside connections, I am at a total loss on pretty much everything. To be honest, I am already getting discouraged and I’ve barely gotten started!

It feels like this year has flown by….my 15 months of time to plan has been a blur!
Reception space, Church, DJ, photographer, Paper products, Centerpieces chosen, Dress purchased…..
but worrying about a minister to marry us. We picked a beautiful church that we are not members of and as such, they will not provide someone to perform the ceremony. So the search is on for that….that is the most stressful part at this point!
Happy planning bees 🙂

I’m glad I’m not alone! I told myself I would really get into the swing of things after Thanksgiving, and it seems like in the blink of an eye, that time is here! Here is what I have done: reception booked, honeymoon booked, church booked, dress bought. I still need to finilize limo, DJ, florist, buy rings, meet with bridesmaids to pick out dresses. Eeeeeek!
