I’m trying to get as much planning as possible this summer before the semester starts, and now that July is coming to a close, I started updating my August calendar…I have so many appointments and stuff!
What are you trying to accomplish in August?
-fitting for my engagement pics/rehearsal dinner dress
-engagement party (I didnt want one but Future Mother-In-Law insisted)
-hair trial and makeup lesson(scheduled thesse on the day of epics so I would look nice for them)
possibly a tasting with the caterer in there too

My August to-do includes:
Picking out my wedding dress! I honestly have NO idea what I am looking for…I am borderline overwhelmed by the process but I am also super excited! I am going to hold off with my other plans until I find my dress

I dont think I have anything that I need to do in August. Currently, I have my dress, venue (church), reception location, caterer, photographer, and cake baker booked. I wanted to get all of the “big” things out of the way before I started up grad school again this fall.

- Wedding: June 2013 - Piney River Ranch
Nothing much on our August to-do. All of our vendors are already booked – just booked the last one (florist) a couple days ago. Researching some more honeymoon resorts/hotels I guess is on the list, as well as starting to figure out some DIY projects.
That’s about it!

Engagement pics are the only definite thing on my list. Maybe meeting with a florist and I might get to check in on my dress progress. I’m 800 miles from my venue so there’s only so much I can get done on quick trips home.. Especially since my August trip is all about my cousin’s wedding.

I’m not 2013 so I might need a lot to do this Auguts than most of you. For August (and some is from July that didn’t get done):
Book DJ (finally… I will be making an appointment with a few this Wednesday).
Book a caterer (looks like the catere I was working with won’t work out 🙁
Make an appoitnment with the church (they NEVER answer their phone and I never have time on Sunday after church to talk to anyone).
Book ceremony site and officiant.
I want to make another payment to the florist.
Drop off inspiration photos to seamstress and florist.
Find my SHOES!!! This has proven difficult.
Start new food and exercise routine.

I am going dress shopping in August and I plan on purchasing my bridesmaid and flower girl dresses!
The venues are already booked. I need to plan a cake testing and schedule our engagement photos.
I am going for the rustic shabby chic look – so I will be continuously looking for mismatch china, decor items, etc.
