I’ve been reading some of the April 24th bride comments since I’m an April 25th bride 🙂 I just bought my dress yesterday!! so excited about that one. I also got my save-the-dates in the mail today 🙂 YAY!! they look amazing! …. and next week we are heading to our venue to do the food tasting! Things are finally starting to come together and it’s becoming real to me-eeek! How far along is everyone else and are you guys getting the ” hey, I’m getting married” feeling??

I’m April 3, 2010 🙂
@mtnbridenc – Congrats on getting your dress, that’s super exciting!! I also mailed my save-the-dates on the same day that you did!! I definitely got the “I’m getting married” feeling when I put my save-the-dates in the mail… it was so surreal, like… it’s really happening!!!
I’m working on getting my vendors picked out. I just found a hair/makeup girl that I’m going to go with today, yay! Other than that… I still need to do my interviewing for DJ, officiant, photo, and video! Thankfully we’re pretty set on our floral, and our catering is all picked out!

Bravo! I’m getting married April 16th in Dallas:-) . I just put my STDs in the mail today, super exciting!! Most of our major vendors are booked, only thing left is graphic designer for stationary and hammering the details of the ceremony/reception decor.
We are climbing close to the 6 months mark, Ive always heard time really flies after that point. Good luck!!

@Disneybride…Welcome to Dallas!! (although I actually live in the D.C. metro area, but grew up in Dallas). We are getting married at the Trammell Crow Center in the downtown Dallas Arts District. This is actually a nice time in Dallas weather-wise, thank goodness you two missed the suffocating heat…lol.
Wow, Disneyland is going to be fabulous!

@Mrs2theDr … Thank you and my goodness everyone keeps talking about the heat!! Especially coming from a place where it’s always 72 degrees… that is quite the shock for me! I never saw a reason to watch the weather channel until now! haha
I’ve spent only a little bit of time in the Arts District but from what I’ve seen that’s going to be a gorgeous wedding! Good luck with your decor & stationary.
What color themes are you guys going with? 🙂

I’m getting married on April 9, 2010. We’ve got all the major vendors just about booked-venue, catering, photographer, DJ, and hair . Waiting on a proposal from a florist and if we like what we see we will book her! Once that is done we’re going to work on the cake!
I’m shopping for my dress in October. Bridesmaid dresses are picked just waiting on the girls to buy them! Guys tuxes are picked out and fiance has been fitted 🙂
Invites are done and being printed this week 🙂
Feels like I’ve done so much…but in reality there is still alot more to be done!

I’m April 10 and April 24 – I’ve got just about all the big stuff done for April 10 – just need to figure out invitations and wedding rings. And probably need to figure out musicians for church soon. We’re having two Masses (one wedding/one blessing) and two Receptions. Have to nail down the menus for both but not too worried about that.
Probably the next thing on the priority list is the invitations – leaning towards very traditional (and inexpensive) just to keep things simple (and inexpensive)
Also have to figure out what to wear for our Blessing & Reception on the 24th…
As of right now I’m kinda in a holding pattern b/c FI is in Africa from last week until February – more worried about him than the wedding! I’ve got two countdowns and the one I’m focused on is his return, not the wedding!

I’m on April 17 and I have only the DIY stuff left to do, plus stamping and throwing the invitations in the mail.
My theme colors are yellow, green, and teal.
Less than three months to go!

Well… yesterday was my first day of stamping!! and I got a lot done! 🙂 with the help of my ever so crafty bridesmaid. We were able to get almost all of the outer and rsvp enveloped done and all the thank you cards!! They all are turning out great 🙂 Super excited that I’m finally getting back into having things to do for the wedding, those months where I was in a stand still were killling me , haha!
