Great thread! I’m like you in that it takes us forever to compare vendors since we are in 4 different locations (we are in an LDR and our parents live in separate states as well). So anything accomplished feels like a major accomplishment since it involves so much coordination haha. 

We got engaged June 25, 2017 and our wedding is August 25, 2018.

So far we have done:

  • Finalized date + venue
  • Draft guest list 
  • Mailed Save the dates yesterday woot!
  • Photographer + videographer 
  • Website + Gift registry 
  • Bought one of our wedding bands over Black Friday
  • Almost finalized a decorator 

Feels good to make progress! You can do it!

PS – sorry for the double post, it wouldn’t let me edit ugh.

I forgot about this tongue-out


Since last posting, we’ve booked our day-of-coordinator and DJ.  I’ve just ordered my veil.  Got the table numbers figured out (DIY), just need photos from my fiance’s family which I should get around Christmas, then can put those together.  We’ve done 2 out of 4 premarital counseling sessions.  Save the Dates sent back in Sept?  My SIL designed them, and she’s also designing the invites, which I think she’s sent off to the printers, so hopefully we can send out the invites in the next month or two.

Planning to meet with the reception venue next month to start planning menus/details, as well as potentially meeting with the pastor to go over ceremony details and also starting our first dance wedding lessons!


Things are slowly coming together, it just still feels like there’s a lot to do!  Only 178 days left now!
