So although our wedding isnt until Sept. 2013, I live in a different country than where the wedding will be and only had a 2 week trip home before the wedding to do as much as I could… and I got a lot done! During the trip we were able to see the venue (take tons of pictures) and put down our deposit. We also did a food and alcohol tasting to decide our menu and signature drink. Then we ordered our cake and cake topper and even found my dress and hair piece! It feels kind of crazy doing so much do far before the wedding, but everyone understood the military thing and were so awesome! Ah I cant wait! Is there anything else that I’m missing and should be doing now??

What about contacting a florist?
That’s pretty exciting you’ve already done so much. We’ve uh…talked about doing things, haha. I DO have my dress at least.

I think we are doing our own flowers, but I do need to choose a photographer. I am usually SO indecisive, the only way I got so much accomplished was to know that I didnt have time to be wishy washy lol. It was awesome. I just walked in, decided what I wanted and that was that 🙂

It is exciting! And you have the same wedding date as me! (ignore that it says October 12, I just picked a date lol). September is actually our anniversary 🙂 I have also found a DJ! They are giving us an AWESOME military discount… so can’t pass that up! I have ordered my dress but not picked out shoes… I’m jealous that you have that done lol. Enjoy and keep me updated on how it’s going for you 🙂
