I am feeling pretty done with planning. We have the officiant (my FI’s cousin), caterer, grooms men attire planned, bridesmaid dresses, photographer, DJ, dress, hair trial planned and cake tasting this weekend. I have booked the hotel and tickets for the honeymoon. I just bought my veil, and have scoped out my other accessories. I finished making our invitations and just need to address them and wait to send them out. My dress and FI’s wedding band should be in this month. I think the only other thing that needs to be done besides details is linens.

Our last big ticket item is to finalize the invitation and paper suite. We just confirmed our vendor yesterday and are now waiting to get some designs back from them and I can’t wait!
My fiancé will most likely start looking into tuxes this month and we would like to finalize the flower girl dress if possible as well.

I am starting to work on invitations. We will also book our honeymoon flights. Aside from that not much else to do this month bc all the big things are done.

We need to book our honemoon flights (waiting for airline miles to come in), finalized invitations and wording, get all bridesmaids dresses ordered (they’re picked out!), and maybe start thinking about songs.
We are out of state from our wedding, so last weekend when we were in town we did our venue tasting, hair & makeup trial, bought my veil, picked shoes and necklace, engagement pictures, and florist meeting!

I have a few things to do…but not many I really want to do!
- Reserve our hotel rooms for Fri/Sat night. This means I need to go visit the nearest hotel to the venue. I’ve been putting it off for months.
- Probably get my invitations ordered
- taking engagement photos (finally)
- I need to figure out where to do my rehearsal dinner
- Really need to narrow down where we want to go for a honeymoon…I’d like to book early next month.
- Start thinking about what the men are going to wear…we finished ordering BM dresses last week.

We just booked in the cake 🙂
Still got the dreaded invitations… I’ve seen nothing I like online (and it’s too expensive besides) but the thought of making them stresses me out 🙁
Groomsmen still haven’t even thought about what they’re wearing…
I’m trying to go on a health kick between now and end of September! I need to lose weight around my back… or I won’t fit my dress!

- Wedding: September 2013 - B&B
This sunday I am sitting down and finalizing the invitations so we can order them!! Pretty excited. They aren’t anything really fancy and we are just doing the invitation and a “response” card that directs them to our website to RSVP, and then just printing simple info cards off as well for directions (although those are also on the website, soooo….) but still!
I want to finalize the groomsmen. We have one groomsman who has NOT answered us about his suit…. so if he drops out, we need to return the suit and replace him with my little brother for a custom shirt that we’re making for all the groomsmen. We kinda just need to know! lol.
Also, working slowly at all of the DIY projects! Glittering shoes for the bridesmaids, decorations, etc.

Still way too much to do – need florist/decorations, still don’t have a dress… sigh. Need plane tickets, rental car (DW) and maybe a few rentals/lighting. Hoping to be mostly done after this month though!

We’re ordering the BM dresses and GM suits. Our reception venue fell through, but we have found another one we’re even more in love that we’re booking next week. Already have honeymoon flights, have to book accomodation. And meeting with photographer next week and hair and makeup week after. My mum lives out of state, so things tend to get booked in a rush either when I’m there or she’s here lol. Then it’s just little things until September!

The big things for us are finding invitations, hair/makeup, and ceremony music. We’ve got our honeymoon, DJ, cake, flowers, and hotels taken care of…for some reason the invitations are proving much harder than I expected!
5 months to go Bees!

We have most of the big stuff finalized. Now I’m just trying to stay on top of the budget. All of this little stuff that I keep buying was not really planned for and is adding up!
I’m still in search of a bartender, everyone I contact seems to be booked! We have a meeting with our pastor next week. He’s a friend of my fiance’s family, but has never met me and knows his parents more than him, so this is basically just so he can get to know us a little better. I’m also in the process of finalizing my DIY-designed invites. I have them finished for the most part, I’ve just been ordering some “drafts” from Vistaprint so the I can make sure they look OK before I place the final order.
We need to get his attire squared away, I need to figure out what accessories I want to wear. I have one bridesmaid who still needs to order her dress, but that should be done this week.
We already took engagement pictures with our wedding photographer (aka my fiance’s aunt who also happens to be a photographer) that were used on our save the dates, but we have a second engagement session coming up with a photographer who offered a free engagement session with the purchase of an engagement ring at the jewelry store where my ring was purchased. Of course I’m sure his goal is to have us use him for the wedding, but at this point I’m sure he’s booked anyway, and the free session comes with a few prints, so why not!
@Sunnyday278: We’re getting married on the same day in the south-central PA area! Here’s hoping for some great PA weather on 9/21/13!

Another Sept. 15th bride here! 🙂 Most of the planning I feel done with as well. We just picked out invitations last week and they will be here in about 3 weeks. I do need to get the hotel booked for the night of the wedding and groomsmen attire picked out in the next month, as well as our wedding bands. Otherwise, I just need to order my under-the-gown accessories, shoes, and the FG basket/ring bearer sign. It’s getting close!!
