So this post has no real point other than to “brag” about how proud I am of everything I got done today wedding-planning-wise!
Backstory: I have been engaged for 3 months, with 2 months to go til the big day. That’s a 5 month engagement for a BIG wedding!
- Emailed back and forth with the planner 3 times
- Sent the deposit for the videographer
- sent the deposit for the photo booth
- signed us up for pre-cana
- Then realized I signed up for the wrong one so I called and fixed it
- spoke with the woman making my invitations and approved the final proof
- spoke to my cake person and decided ond the final design
- addressed all the thank you cards from the shower.
- reviewed and updated the registry
Can you believe it?!?! I told my FI but as a “non-planner” he fails to appreciate the beauty of checking off all those items…
How about you Bees? Are you more of a check off item by item or do you like to ignore things for a few days like I do and then go on a wedding to-do frenzy?

Wow! That is impressive, girl! Checking items off the wedding to-do list is the best!

Nicely done! It’s so satisfying to check stuff off the list.

TOOT TOOT TOOT
That’s me, tooting my horn for you!
I have accomplished nothing latley – I just got back from a mini-vacation!
But I have a bunch of follow-up emails to send out.
FI the planner (I am the non-planner!) has been super busy meeting with whoever he needs to. But we’ll get back into the swing of it soon!

@HourThyme: Good job! We have a 4-5 month engagement, but planning a smaller event. I have found that w/ everything NWR in my life, I try to do one wedding planning thing a week. First was venue, next week invites, then cake, then bands/rings, and so on.
I can’t imagine planning huge wedding in only 5 months. You seem to have everything under control though.

@HourThyme: LOL!! That is impressive. I could olny wish that I was getting that much accomplished.
I have however done this 8 months to go, of course I have not done all of this is one day. It has taken me months.
Selected photographer. Will be making deposit this week.
Purchased my dress.
Selected venue. Paid deposit last week.
Ordered bridesmaid dresses.
Of course, any of the above mention items could change in a seconds notice, as I have found I cannot make up my mind.
I still have to select music, work on inviations, flowers, shoes for all of the girls, hair and makeup, limosine services……and I am sure 100+ more things that I have not thought of yet.
And yes, for a destination wedding which makes it all the more crazy.
One final note, I looked at my budget and I only have to pay out a little more than 9k and everything will be paid for. LOL!! I start getting a little goofy when I try to figure out where all this money is coming from. It is complete madness that only a Bee could understand.
You are doing a great job getting so much done. I am so jealous!!

Planning is super annoying, but little by little I am chugging along….
