    OH wow, I love your dress!!! It is gorgeous!!

    I’m a little behind on everything too (my wedding is in ~6 weeks, eek!) but the only thing that really struck me on your list was bridesmaids dresses…it took my bridesmaids dresses 5 months to come in once they ordered them (and we couldn’t order them until all the girls had their measurements in), so that seems a little odd. But, that probably depends on the dress & place you get them from.

    I saw your comment about bridesmaids robes – I searched all over for these! Tried ordering a few custom ones off of Etsy but didn’t like the quality/fit of any of them. Eventually, I ended up going with the “Kimono” style robe from Victoria’s Secret. And they are gorgeous! Beautiful color choices – I went with a bright pink – and they’re $50 each which is not that bad considering the ones on etsy ended up coming to $40 with shipping and were much lower quality. Also, VS was running a sale when I bought them for $75 off a purchase of $250 so I got all 5 robes for under $200. Something to think about if you’re still looking for robes!! I highly recommend them!

    I love your dress!


    I have 141 days to go, so around 5 months. 

    So far this is what I have done:

    Venue: Paid In Full

    Hair & Makeup (Bride + Wedding Party): Paid In Full

    Wedding Dress: Paid In Full

    Bridal Party Dresses + Flower Girl Dress: Paid In Full

    Wedding Cake: Paid In Full

    Vacation Rental: Paid In Full

    Officiant: Paid In Full

    Florist: Paid In Full


    What I Have Left:

    Photographer: 50% Paid, Paying the other 50% in 2 weeks

    String Quartet: We have a contract and song lists, but we’ve yet to pay them.


    Bridal Party Getting-Ready Robes: Contacted Etsy seller and will pay in the next few weeks.

    Car Rental

    Bridal Accessories (veil, shoes, sash, jewellery)

    Groom Tux Rental + Accessories


    Those are the major things I can think of. I’m not worried about the things I haven’t done because it wouldn’t make sense to rent a tux right now, or rent a car yet. 

    Right now my focus is on finding dinnerware, tablecloth, etc. for the dessert table. I like to get things done early so I don’t have to stress so much about last minute things. I feel like I’m right on target with everything. Who knows though.
