So we’re getting married May 5 and got our venue reserved today. Woot! We’ve already booked a DJ and photographer. But I still haven’t committed to a caricaturist.
Also went to a place here in Dallas o look at decor items. I love that place. With the vnue, me and Fi have definitely gotten a clearer vision of what we’re going for. We’re totally going Western. In fact, we’re doing silk bluebonnets in the center peices. Salesplace had some for a reasonable price.
I wish we could do real ones, but they are the state flower and have a really short window for blooming and I’m not willing to worry about being able to get them.
Also went to my first Bridal Show and it was fun, so many vendors,but none for hair/makeup which is the only one I’m looking for actively.
Then we stopped at a barbeque place around the corner from the house, I’d never actually been there before, but I’ve only lived here for a year and hasn’t gotten around to it. The brisket and sides were delicious and can you take a look at these prices?
I’m contacting their catering coordinator on Monday. They do have good yelp reviews.
Fi and I also had a date night and went to a sing along for the movie, the greatest showman. It’s an awesome movie and we really enjoyed it. We we’re annoyed that this was an AMC dine in theater, but I guess only some of the theater are dine in because there was no food service and we arrived hungry 🙁 aoh well, we have more songs we want to dance to lol.
Are any of my fellow May brides about ready?

I’m a May bride (26th) and we’re getting there! Ring shopping next weekend for us, and florist visiting for bouquets!
I need to speak to the church to sort out the service sheets etc and have a meeting with the choir.
It’s all the little things really for us

anabolina : Did you end up chosing the BBQ place for your catering?
I’m also a May bride. We are getting married May 12, 2018. We’ve already booked our venue, caterer, baker, officiant, videographer, photographer, mua and DJ. I have already purchased dress and accessories. The bridesmaids have their dresses and accessories. I have the flower girl dress and accessories. The Ring pillow and flower girl basket. We’ve purchased all gifts for the bridal party. We will get crayons and coloring books and a few other things for the ring bearer and flower girl. The decor for the ceremony and reception have been taking care of (diy).
I think right now the only thing we have to do is finalize our ceremony with the officiant, get the groomsmens suits and accessories and finish paying the vendors which we will have done at the end of March.

Fellow Dallas Bee here. I love the bluebonnets! Maybe you could find a way to mix in some real greenery, like just a few leaves, to the silk flowers.

I think my main thing at the moment is sorting out timings and finalising invitations. Every thing else is mostly done- 19th May will come around soon enough.

Anyone else feel like time is going too quickly? Just short of 3 months to go and I haven’t done any diy stuff and seems like there’s a million tiny details to do! I should stop procrastinating…

May bride as well! Time is getting closer and I’m getting nervous!! We have most of the “big” things done. Still need to have my dress altered, make arrnagments for our pets, order flowers (we’re doing Costco flowers), and I’m sure a million other little things that I’m forgetting.
