  • Wedding: June 2013

Venues, DJ, make up, bakery and STDs are all done (still have to send out STDs though). Our wedding is destination for most, and we’re planning a CA wedding from DC, and also planning a move, so it’s nice to get things out of the way now before things get too crazy. The to do list is basically meet with vendors on a trip to CA to visit my parents, but not too much, just little things here and there.

  • Wedding: June 2013

Accomplished:

Venue, Photographer, Catering, DJ

To Do:

Meet with officiant (sometime within the next couple of weeks), Select florist, begin planning honeymoon, dress shopping, choose bakery.

I’m hoping to have almost everything for the wedding completed 4 months prior to the wedding so it is not so overwhelming closer to the date!

We’ve got the church, reception venue, photographer and DJ booked and wedding party finalized. I have save the dates hanging out in my closet for a few more weeks while I collect addresses, and I’m in the middle of getting proposals from three florists. Dress shopping starts in July!

We’ve booked our church, reception site, photographer, DJ, bakery, rentals for linens and dishes, limo.  I’ve got my dress, just need alterations.  We finished Pre-Cana last month.  We did our engagement photos already, and printed the Save the Dates. Our invitations are printed, but not assembled.   Some of the bridesmaids have their dresses, but not all of them. 

Still to do: I’m collecting brooches for my bouquet, and bought the flowers for the bridesmaids. Still need to order the boutenierres for the groomsmen, get the tux situation figured out, book our honeymoon, finish making the centerpieces, make the programs, figure out the Welcome Bags, book the rehearsal dinner location, and order the pocketfolds and put together the invites…I’m sure I’m forgetting something!

We have already booked our ceremony/reception space,have an officiant (FI’s brother), have our STDs, bought a groupon for letterpress invitations, and have booked our photographer as well as booked our date for engagement pictures. 

I’m a teacher and would like to get a bulk of the wedding planning done this summer, since I don’t have a lot of time during the school year, so I’ve been making appointments to meet with a baker, florist, and linen/decor company.

Wow, you ladies are makin me feel like a slacker. Especially since I’ve been engaged a year now…

I literally just paid off my ceremony dress, which should arrive next month. We already have photographer and planner on board. Already took engagement pics. Finalizing things with the ceremony/reception venue before we sign that contract, then we have to figure out the venue stuff for the other events we’re hosting the day before. Bought my ceremony shoes and have looked at jewelry. Still need to get my reception outfit handled, and my day before stuff, too.

Paper products and floral arrangements will hopefully be handled by family/friend of the family. So I’ll see how that goes haha.
