VintageGinger: We have a ton of things finished, but I am a full time grad student and I have been engaged since last August, so it was sort of my goal to finish most everythig before the fall semester started in September. Also, I’m getting married in a major city so things here book unbelievably fast. We had to book almost 2 years out just to get a Saturday in June at the venue we wanted.
We’ve got our venue (which includes linens, chairs, food, cake, open bar, etc.), photographer, band (music), his wedding band (jewelry), florist, church, officient, lighting, my dress and veil, hair and makeup artists, valet, classic car, guest transportation, wedding party transportation, hotel for the night before and the night of, save the dates (sent!), and we’ve started to purchase wedding party gifts. Whew!
We still have some things to work on like photography permits for the city, invitations, hotel bags, bathroom baskets, meeting with all of our vendors, seating charts, escort cards, groom’s attire, etc. I went shoe shopping last weekend and I have a pair in mind I might purchase! We also DESPERATELY need to get moving on planning our honeymoon! Even though we’ve done so much, it still feels like we have SO MUCH left to do.
As for threads that might help you: we have an entire board dedicated to June of 2015 bees. Be sure to check it out! And welcome to the bee 🙂
