I’m planning for my wedding, but not until 2013! But I’m still stressed to get at least some things nailed down.

Labor Day weekend bride right here!

I’m still working on invitations, transportation, flowers/decor, pre-wedding and wedding night accommodations, figuring out where to go for the honeymoon, and probably 400 other things I can’t (and don’t want to) think about right now.  πŸ˜‰

Date twin! πŸ™‚  Same here – sometimes I feel way ahead of the game, other times… ARGH!  I find myself dreading when people (who mean well!) ask “how’s the planning going”?  Recent developments include our parents offering to host a welcome dinner for all guests, as well as a farewell brunch.  So generous, but it adds to the to-do list in terms of helping invite, coordinate, plan, etc.  I can’t seem to catch up!

I hadn’t thought of a 3 day weekend anniversary – love it!

I’m getting married Sept 2, 2012! I feel like there isn’t much to do, even though there is… we’re trying to work on our timeline so we can order invitations. I’m ordering my bridesmaid dresses tomorrow (hoping I haven’t left it too late)…. Trying to start thinking about decorations.

9/1/12 right here!

I’m in the same boat as most of you…my MAJOR goals for the next week or two are booking the cake (I keep playing phone tag with the woman), choose flower girl/mini bride dresses, and purchase stationery for the invitations. I have about 2/3 of my centerpiece vases already and am slowly collecting more, have limo, dj, photographer, videographer booked already. Dresses are all ordered, scheduled to arrive in early-mid July. Definitely also need to decide on favors, decor, ceremony readings/music. Then there’s all the “little stuff”….


I also did not think of the fact that it’ll be a three day weekend anniversary! That’s great!

Hello date twins!

There’s a whole lot to get done, that can’t get done until I can resolve two very important things: the officiant, and the catering.

Our potential officiant is a friend of ours, and the wife of the owner of our venue (which is a music club). She suggested to us that she could get ordained, and marry us on the stage of the place. I was over the moon when she suggested it in January. Since then she’s said she’s not sure…still not sure, still not sure (it’s not clear to me why not), and 5 months later she’s still not sure but “has someone in mind” if she ends up not becoming ordained. Which is very nice, but the point of holding the ceremony there on the stage was that SHE would do it. Having a stranger do it is not what I want, otherwise we would have just stuck to the town hall idea.

She is also supposed to be getting me quotes on various options of open bar. Been waiting for those since February. So I have no idea what I’m looking at.

The kitchen owner at this venue has since told me he can’t cater (he was going to do it for pennies on the dollar). So I’ve been snooping around for catering options (food trucks, sub trays, appetizers, restaurants, all the non-catering-company stuff), but without a bar estimate, I don’t know what we can afford for catering.

I can’t complete the invitations until I know if the ceremony will be there, and until I know if we’re doing open bar all day or on certain drinks between X hours. So, I feel totally stuck. It *almost* makes me say screw it, let’s just go to town hall.

GAH, now I’m all afluster! Maybe a list of what I do have done will make me feel better:

Dress. My ring. 1/2 of the centerpiece foundations. 1/2 of the votive holders. Music. Cake (cupcakes). Guest book. Photographer.

DIY to do’s that surprisingly I’m NOT stressing about: sheet music confetti. Sheet music banners. Bride & Groom stool covers. Table cards. The other half of the centerpieces and votive holders.

I’ll feel so much better when those two biggies are resolved, but for now I’m working hard at not having a total bridezilla meltdown.
