Yay me too!  I feel like I’m getting off to a slow start.  We’ve booked our reception and ceremony venues and that’s about it.  We’re about to sign the contract for the photographer but right now I’m researching videographers and makeup artists.

I’m a March 19 bride! 

So far I’ve chosen a venue, then changed my mind and chosen another venue, then changed my mind and am considering the first venue again.

Bridesmaids dresses are bought and in the BM hands (clearance at JCrew…YAY!)

Save the dates (most of our guests will be traveling) are in and addressed, waiting  to be mailed after I finally decide on venue.

 

Frames for my photo centerpieces bought.

FI wedding band bought (I’m just using my engagment ring as a wedding band)

Photographer picked out, but only email contact so far.

 

I feel like I should have more done, but of course this venue thing is the most pressing.  I’m planning from afar, which isn’t helping matters any…

Hello Ladies! Just got engaged last Friday and we want a quick engagement… so far progress for one week, the date, and the Church and the Reception Venue have been chosen! We haven’t signed contracts for the Reception yet, we probably will Monday… YEAY! HOW FUN!

Thanks vistagirl.  I’m nervous because the weather in Oklahoma could literally do ANYTHING on March 19 (could have an ice storm, could be 120 degrees in the shade, could even have a tornado)…but it’s my nieces spring break and I couldn’t possibly have a wedding without them so here I am a March Bride!

I’m a March 19, 2011 bride and I am so excited. So far I have the ceremony venue, reception venue, photographer, videographer, and wedding dress. Right now I’m working on my save the dates. I am so excited but at the same time I am starting to feel a little stressed when I think of all the little details I have to take care of.

Okay…I have completely committed to both a ceremony and reception venue (a huge relief to get that done).  I mailed my STDs last week because it’s spring break and we have a lot of people who will have to travel.  My original photog cancelled on me, but I’ve found a new one that I like better, so that worked out.  Working on the room blocks now.

 

We’ll head to Oklahoma in early September to do cake tasting, premarital counseling,  and to pick out a rehearsal dinner spot.  I would really just like a low key, cheap RD, but FMIL is excited about planning it, so I’ll just let her do whatever.

The part of this whole process that I’m least interested in is picking out a dress.  Haven’t done that yet, and actually really dreading it.

soonerbride, why are you dreading dress shopping?

I’m a March 19th bride also! 🙂 So far I have venue, caterer, bartender, photography, florist and bakery all booked.

Centerpieces are provided by venue, bridesmaids dresses picked out but not purchased, bridsmaid ceremony and reception shoes purchased, my reception shoes purchased, dress and ceremony shoes picked out.

Invitations purchased, save the dates purchased and working on getting addresses currently.

I know I’ve done other stuff, but I can’t think of them at the moment!

242 days and counting!

angela, I don’t love shopping and I’d say I have some body image issues, so dress shopping sounds awful.

Have you printed your invitiations already?

No, not yet.  We are going to start printing them in September, after all the save the dates are sent.

I have body image issues too, and that’s why I’ve been looking online!  I just look for ones that accentuate the good and hide the bad.  🙂

I was TOTALLY dreading my dress shopping, and it was so much fun and it went SO well! I bought my dress already! What styles are you looking at?

Sweetpea:

Glad to hear it went well for you.  That gives me hope.

I’m looking for an inexpensive dress, first and foremost.  I’m pearshaped, so I think probably a line.  I would prefer sleeves, but of course those are hard to find these days….I’ve set my head on going shoppin in midseptember, so we’ll see how it goes 🙂
