crunch time!? Oh no!! I’m a June bride and Still need to get going on my shoes, bridal party gifts, invitations etc. All of my vendors are reserved and venue but I feel like its the little things that are giving me anxiety, such as choosing invitations, and escort cards . I’m having a destination wedding this makes it a tad bit frustrating. LOL
@jrzvol: what are your colors?? mine are Hot pink and orange.:)

This weekend I had a mini hair trial. I went to get my haircut, and my hair dresser (I’ve had the same one for years and years), wanted to play around a bit with hairstyles for fun. She didn’t charge me for it either – but I gave her an extra tip because she was so sweet. I pretty much know now what I’m going to do for my hair.
This weekend we’re making a list of stuff to register for. We won’t have very many things, but we’re both ok with that. Then, I have to call mom and dad and ask if they find the price of caterer/DJ/photographer to be reasonable, so I can book those things this week.
Today I’m hoping to finish making the thank you cards and start on a list of addresses for guests. Maybe I’ll also play around with invitation wording, and read some hotel reviews of the 3 or 4 that are super close to our venue.

@Birdi: Mine are coral and orange! Maybe some light pink in there too.
I only say its crunch time because I still have so much to do! Today I got linens picked and set our ceremony time, so I should be able to order invitations in the next week or two. Now time to write our ceremony and find a rehearsal dinner space!
I still need to:
– book a florist
– pick music
– order invitations
– plan rehearsal, which will probably be difficult because my venue told me they cant guarantee which day my rehearsal will be until 2 months out. hmmm
-book hair/makeup, but I think I know who I’m using
-order bridesmaid dresses/tuxes
– everything else!! ahh!

This weekend I will be going to look for bridesmaids dresses for my sisters! Hopefully we will find them that day! I don’t even have colors picked out, but will hopefully figure that out once we start looking! lol Then the following Teusday I will be going to my first dress fitting! I’m very excited and nervous at the same time!!!

I’m stressing over the plus one’s.

I am having my tasting this weekend, and hopefully getting all the rentals set during the tasting. I also need to book my trial hair and makeup, and finalize the rehearsal dinner with my FMIL. Other than that, I think I’m good (famous last words)!

I’m caking tasting this weekend! It will be our third and final place so hopefully we can decide on a place after this. We also need to decide/book honeymoon, as well as work on invitations and maybe contact a few florists. lol, i doubt it’ll be done this weekend..but its a start. I feel like i’m behind schedule already!!

The only “big” things I have on my to-do list are invitations and music. I also need decor (centerpieces – but I have those picked out already, just need to purchase) and I also need to get my jewelry finalized, but I’m having that made. We’re moving to CA 2 weeks before the wedding, so I’m more stressed about the logistics of that than the logistics of the wedding!

@skylar1224: I am doing this same thing! I have an appt. Saturday, so the remaining BMs who haven’t ordered their dresses are going to get measured and order them! YAY!
@Birdi: I am in a similar process, except I am trying to find a caterer not a restaurant for the rehearsal dinner! Hopefully my mom and I can meet with some chefs next week!
I am also menu tasting next weekend! Can’t wait for that =) After that I want to work on invitations and groomsmen/groom attire…I can’t believe I am almost at the 5 month mark!
