I’ll try to answer the second question! 🙂

We are in the process of finalizing our invitations and placing the order. Hopefully by this weekend that will be done. After that is done, I’d like to start working on programs, menus, etc. We’re also going to buy FIs wedding band (already bought mine a while ago) and start looking into tuxes. We need to nail down the menu with the caterer although I think we have a pretty good idea of what we want to have, food-wise. I’ll need to meet with the florist to design our florals, and we still haven’t nailed down our transportation. Then it gets into the nitty-gritty details, like deciding on all of my accessories, working on welcome bags, etc. Still so much to do!! But we have plenty of time and I feel like I’m doing alright.

This week is meeting and deciding on a photographer. 

My dress came in super early and I have an appt to try it on on Sunday.

Next week will be getting Fiance out to look at tuxes. 

Still don’t know what we are going to do for transportation, but the bridal party is very small so its a minor issue.  And we still need to buy rings.

Invites, flowers and centerpieces will be DIY so I’ll start working on them next month.
