10 months! the thought of 9 months makes me anxious! single digits!

anyways i haven’t finalized anything since last month, i’m waiting to go to a bridal show to book some appointments with bakeries

my mother is working on getting us a string quartet for our ceremony through someone she knows

i also have to start thinking about save the dates! i was hoping to use a picture from our engagemet shoot but  we’re running short on time  and i haven’t even booked our shoot yet

  • Wedding: December 2013

@Nic01:  Love this idea!! Thanks for keeping us all in touch! 🙂

 

I’ve booked: ceremony, reception, photography, videography, photo booth

I’m looking into: florist, dj, and officiant. I’m calling a pastor this afternoon and waiting to hear back on a couple of e-mails. I have a meeting this evening with a DJ whom I think am going to love but will probably be out of my price range 🙁 Tomorrow we’re meeting with a florist! I’d really like to get those things booked by the end of the month. Oh! I also would like to order our STD by the end of the month.

I wanted to have finalised (deposit paid) by next month: Officiant/Pastor, DJ (try to pay the most we can)

Highlight of the month: Finding my wedding dress!! I love it!

Frustration of the month: thinking ahead of getting an apartment… I just want a beautiful wedding. I feel like if we move out in the summer (cheaper rent) it would take away from money I could be putting towards the wedding 🙁

Also… I have a feeling one of my bridesmaids is going to be a huge headache. She’s already said some things that make me question her seriousness to this wedding.. hope I don’t sound like a bridezilla.

10 months!?!? Oh god. 

 

I’ve booked: ceremony/officiant/church, reception venue, DJ, Photography (Almost!)

I’m looking into: Caterer, florist, maaaaybe videography, DRESS!!!

I wanted to have finalised (deposit paid) by next month: Venue finished, caterer

Highlight of the month: Finally figuring out the photographer! We met with two and I was feeling really annoyed about the process until we met with the second one and I am so excited about it now!

Frustration of the month: See above…..also, I’m frustrated at the vendors I reach out to just to get more information, then hounding us to book with them and I feel like a big meanie saying we chose someone else! 

I have yet to ask my bridesmaids….I’m still debating on one girl. I can’t wait to go dress shopping later this month! Oh and I just finished my save the dates so those should be sent out by the end of February!

  • Wedding: August 2013

Love this! We can all keep each other on track : )

I’ve booked/bought: venue, reception, priest, purchased dress, seamstress and all fittings up to the wedding date, signs for the reception

I’m looking into: Wedding bands, DJs (spoke to a few already), photographers

I wanted to have finalised (deposit paid) by next month: Florist (know who we’re going to use, just haven’t met with her yet) and Photographer

Highlight of the month: Finding a wonderful seamstress and having a great dinner with my  parents and FI’s parents.

Frustration of the month: Worrying about who to include on the guest list, but we worked on it together and got the guest list in line with our budget.

Here’s my dress : )

  • Wedding: August 2013

@nemoandthebrain:  First off, your dress is amazing! It looks wonderful on you. 

I’m not sure where you live, but when I was looking for apartments, I kept a tracker on the best times to move. August does have low prices, but I got a great deal in November (didn’t move til Dec). If you’re ok with waiting it out til close to the wedding date, I think you might be able to find apartments just as cheap as during the summer. No one tends to want to move close to the holidays.
