- Wedding: April 2015
Okay, so FI and I have been sort of winging this whole wedding planning business. We have some things nailed down and other things we haven’t tackled yet and I’m willing to bet there’s stuff we haven’t even thought about. I’ve been searching through other threads and making a list but thought it’d be worth it to ask directly because I feel like I’m only thinking of the big stuff and not the details. What do you think I need to be working on? Thanks so much for your help!
Here’s the run down:
Wedding date: April 11, 2015
Ceremony location: Secured – DW at the beach.
Reception location: TBD but we’re actively working on this. We are headed down to the beach this week to check out some venues and decide if we are doing an after ceremony dinner there with a big reception back home or just doing the whole reception there. So, there’s not many details we can work on with this one until we get that figured out.
STDs: Already sent out
Hotel blocking: Also going to work on that this week. Meeting in person.
Ceremony decor: I have a loose vision that I’m trying to firm up. I have wedding coordinator who’s done weddings that are similar in style and I’m pretty confident in her.
Flowers: Same as above
Dress: Ordered and not-so-patiently waiting for it’s arrival but it’ll likely be a few months since I just ordered it last weekend.
Invitations: Trying to decide what we want…sooo many pretty paper options
Rings: FI has picked his out. We know what I want but need to go to the jeweler to choose the exact one.
Hair/Make Up: Having my trial on Friday
Bridesmaids dresses: We’ve started looking and decided on a color and general idea. Just trying to find one that comes in everyone’s dress size and wallet size.
Tuxes: FI just decided what he wanted (He’s a man with many opinions lol) and we’re going to line that up this week.
Marriage lisence: Probably getting that this week. The state we’re marrying in doesn’t issue any expiration date with their lisence so we figure we might as well tick that off the list.
Photography: We technically have this secured as it’s included in our wedding package but we are looking at other photographers in the area that we may consider using instead. The photos from the house photographer are fine…but just fine. FI and I both think photography is important (FI dabbles in photography so he’s fairly critical).
Favors: I have no idea what to do here.
Vows: I think we may write our own
Music: FI and I love music. FI and I love each other. You’d think it’d be easy to tie those two things together. But it’s not and we’re drawing a blank on ceremony music. I’d love to hear your song selections too.
What else is there? Please feel free to fill up my to-do list! I’d rather be over prepared than make a mess of things because I didn’t plan ahead.
