It’s all exciting and I’m wondering where all the time went. 

Our day invitations are out and we have started recieving the RSVPs 😀 The evening invites are made and will be going out soon. I started decorating our guestbook yesterday. My dress is in the shop but I still need to arrange when I will have the dress fittings.

I’m now really impatient for the RSVPs to come back so I can get started on the seating chart and the place cards.

We still haven’t finished deciding on the details of the service.

Wow – I wasn’t going to send out invites until June, even with most guests being out of towners! But we sent save the dates early and a lot of people have already booked travel.

I’m actually kind of in a state of wedding… I don’t know… fatigue? I feel like I did a ton of stuff leading up until now that I’m kind of enjoying taking a break until things pick back up again in a couple of months. I also cannot wait to do the seating chart! I know it’s something that can drive people nuts, but my fiance and I both love that kind of organizational stuff haha

Holy crap I haven’t even ORDERED my invitations yet! We sent out save the dates, though, and most people have already booked their flights, etc.

I’m mostly just starting to get nervous that I’ve forgotten something. This month has been kind of slow, but I know things are going to seriously pick up in May. 

I still need some kind of guest book, I need gifts for my bridesmaids, we’ve booked the florist but I need to meet with them about what I want exactly. We have the name of a transportation company but we haven’t booked anything formally yet on that.

In June I have a shower and I’m having my bridal portraits made (that’s a southern thing). I am also excited for the seating chart – I love organizing things!

PeachKitten:  I’m in the middle of addressing invitations, sending them out about May 17 since the room block ends June 16th. I have been taking my time and doing a few invitations a week (careful to first address the ones for folks who live in permanent houses and have no plans of moving! turns out a bunch of our friends are moving this month, so we’ll have to catch up on those addresses) 

Now I’m trying to figure detail things out… like when to buy the favors, because I don’t want to overbuy before we have a guest count but also want to leave enough time. We are getting mini maple syrup bottles so I’ll have to figure out what the deadline for ordering those is!

PeachKitten:  I love soap! What a great favor. We are thinking of putting some locally made soap in our guest bags for the guests staying in the hotel.

Our invites started getting assumeled this week, they should be going out in sometime in May, boy am I gald we hired a local invite place to do ours and address them! Although I can’t wait to see how they turn out, been stocking their fb page a little.  Just hired a videographer last week, had our consulation with our venue, and have the cake appointement in two weeks, and 2nd alterations than too. Phew its been a busy wedding month thats for sure.

Still feeling like I need to start pulling together the smalelr details now.

Woah…I am way behind most of you ladies…I am booking my venue this week and getting a friend to design our invitations (still haven’t asked). I won’t be sending out invitations till June. I have my dress (still unaltered) and shoes, and have started brainstorming centerpiece ideas. I still have to finalize my guest list, interview photographers, figure out wedding favors, look at florists, figure out entertainment, and begin the process of dress alterations.

PeachKitten:   I would but FI uses the site as well so I can’t share dress details.

 

oneyearout:  CaroBee:  In the UK the invitations tend to go out sooner.  Our invitations were held up by our venue putting off the menu tasting but we had family members keep asking when the invitations were going out.

Most of what we have left to sort out can’t be done until closer to the wedding.

I am DIYing most of my wedding so I have already done sooo much but I still have a lot to do. So far the invites went out a little over a week ago, they were hand made pocket folds, every vendor is booked except videographer, I am not sure that we will have one. 🙁 I hand made the invites, moss table numbers, grapevine arch, moss letter P’s to hang on the outside of the tent entrance, lace covered jars to put flowers and tea lights in, (am still working on those), wood log candle holders, wood slice coasters, so so many more things to name I have done.

What we need to finish is our card chest, I stained that and cut the hole that is the extent. I still have to paint our names on it. I have to order or make our guest book, sand and varnish the wood slice charger plates, finish making the chest for the ring bearer to make, make the programs, and so so much more to name. Literally the crafts are almost a whole page on word!! We have to meet with the officiant to finish picking our vows, make a final decision on cake flavors, and our food with the caterer. We have to decide on timing for our rehearsal, and wedding day. We have ideas but didn’t put them on paper. We also have to make seating charts and all sorts of signs. AND decide on songs. We still didnt even do that! So so many DIY projects have consumed our lives. I also got a great idea to make a “lemonade Stand” to put where we want to have our lemonade. So that’s an add on. My head is spinning! haha I feel like I am driving myself crazy!
