Hi Ladies! Let’s check in… What are your current projects? I’m sort of in a quiet phase, got a lot done last month, and have lots planned for March/April, but not so much right now.
My main thing this month will be to get my website live and send out Save-The-Date Cards.

We’re hoping to sign the contract with our ceremony/venue site and order my dress this week. Also hoping to book the DJ by the end of the week, too.
Once that’s taken care of, Save-The-Date Cards out around Valentine’s Day. And then I’m taking a break for a little while!

STD’s are already out for me! I’m working on printing and assembling my invites, slowly but surely. I’m heat embossing them all, so it’s slow work and I’m starting early.
Also, we are making final decisions on the guy’s attire and bridesmaids dresses and getting the dresses ordered.
The last thing on my to-do list for Feb is plan the honeymoon! This is one of the most complicated things I’ve done so far, but also one of the most fun!

We sent Save-The-Date Cards last year, so that’s been checked off for awhile. I am working on my big DIY project: table numbers, escort cards, photo mobiles, and ceremony programs. I’m sor of dreading it, to be perfectly honest.
We’re doing our cake tasting this weekend and starting to register by the end of the month. My Maid/Matron of Honor is starting to plan my bach party and my aunts are planning showers, which makes me really excited. We’ve been engaged for over a year, so it’s kind of hard to wrap my head around all of this happening.
I am also really working hard on fitness goals. I have my dress and it fits, but alterations wouldn’t be so bad either.

Done: Save the Date postcards, wedding website, venue contract, photographer, dress, hotel room block, honeymoon (mostly), cake.
To Do (hopefully Feb): find band that fits in my small budget, finalize contract with caterer, make more centerpieces (3 of 12 done so far), find invitations, figure out logistics of setup at venue – measure site and maybe finalize day-of-coordinator who would also handle rentals of chairs and linens.
That sounds like a lot for a short month.

Centerpieces! They’ve been the thorn in my side for a while and I really need to just figure it out. I’m christening February as centerpiece month for myself!
