I love having the to do list on here. I love seeing what everyone else is doing and it motivates me to do some things.
This is a busy month and so is next month since April I am going out of town for work and May is my birthday and Finals I want to have a couple of weeks to relax before the bustle of the bridal shower, dress fittings, and any other things my amazing BM want to do with me.
This month we are:
finalizing BM dresses ( looking at them as a group but will end up letting the girls pick their dress, just matching colors)
picking a florist- (i was floored by the cost $$$)
picking a baker- my Love cant make it because of work so my parents go to have cake and eat it to.
scheduling our PMC and our Engagment photos for March
Going this weekend to get some new clothes for the E-photos
starting some DIY project ( and hopefully finishing them to be stored away till the big day)
Ordering the favors- we decided to go with personalized pens from National Pens ( pens.com) found a great deal for 200 pens for 107.00 including fees and shipping YAY!
What is everyone else doing this month?

My wedding is in August, but the last day so practically September 🙂
This month I am having the bridesmaids order their dresses since they’re made to order dresses, they take a bit longer to arrive.
I just fired my baker so we’re looking to hire another, who will also be doing the grooms cake.
We are choosing the tux styles.
We are interviewing day-of coordinators.
We’ll be ordering our invites to send them out in May.
I’ll also be doing some DIY decor for the sweetheart table.
Good luck bees!

We found dress for the girls! thank goodness. now I have to go to the baker this weekend and hopefully by the end of the day on saturday We will have that taken care of.
I am still having a hard time with a florist. Everyone wants to wait until After Feb 14th, which is fine but for some reason everyone is getting married on the same day as me and I have a minimal amount of options to go with.
I am going to start making the burlap signs this weekend and one day I will have the everything done.

We got the florist and the bridesmaids dresses! All that’s left for Feb, or more likely March, is booking a limo, a cake tasting, buying wedding rings and having my groom find his suit.
