Heh, we might seem like we’re in control of everything, but I’ve changed my mind on my save the dates about a million times now, and no florist or DJ yet…

If any of those girls are like me, they’re done because they had a long engagement and couldn’t wait to start planning. =) I’m three years out, and I can totally visualize me having chosen everything within the year. Maybe not put down any payments, but picked out what I want, definitely.

=D There’s lots of people who plan an entire wedding in 4-6 months, so don’t worry! You have almost everything, after all. =) As for a hair trial, I’m sure you don’t have to GO now — sure, start collecting inspiration — but I might recommend Spasation if you want a really high-end hair trial, or a hair-cutting school if you’d rather just try a couple things out and keep the cost of the trial low. Definitely get your make-up trial done at a department store esthetician! (Unless you really want to splurge, in which case, again, I’d recommend Spasation.)

You need to get a caterer. Unless that’s included in the reception (you didn’t mention it above), or you’re just doing cake & champagne. If you already have a caterer, you still need to choose the menu. You need to do your seating plan. Think about dance lessons! =) That’s all I can think of right now.

On the hair trial thing, my hair dresser asked me not to do it more than a month before so that she wouldn’t forget. So while it will be a month before, I booked it several months before. πŸ™‚

I think as long as you have a plan for when things need to be done you’re fine.  I just got ahead because I’m studying for a big exam the month before the wedding.  I already did my hair trial but it’s because I don’t live in the same city where we’re getting married.  Do some research on places and call them and see what they suggested.  I’d wait til August or so probably. πŸ™‚

  • Wedding: October 2009 - Church Ceremony/Reception at The Waterford House

Another late Oct. bride here! πŸ™‚  I just started contacting vendors for hair/make-up.  Out of the two that I’ve contacted (at this point I’m so tired of booking things πŸ™‚ ), one is booked and the other is open… I just need to make an appointment.  I have no idea what I’m going to do either, so I’m hoping to find some inspiration before our first meeting.

Depending on the size of the wedding party you want to start thinking about getting into the schedule at a hair salon. Boston area salons can book up pretty quickly! But otherwise, you will be fine. Brides do more in less time! Good luck!

Yo! You need to relax. My date is Oct. 11th and I’m pretty much in the same boat.

I’m not doing my trials until Sept. All I have left to do is send invites to the printers, place cards and seating charts. But really I can’t do those until RSVPs come in.

I think that most of your important details have already been handled and I think you have plenty of time before the wedding.  I only have a month left before my wedding and I’m still looking for a photographer, videographer, and DJ. 

Just stay in touch with your wedding planner and I think you’ll be fine.

I wouldn’t worry about it!  Some people are just big planners πŸ™‚
