I am from pittsburgh as well, and I’m not sure what type of wedding you are having but October is one of the most popular months! I had to book my venue TWO years in advance…If you have your eye on some place I would start looking…Just in case.

July 7, 2012!
It doesn’t seem that far away to me…. but then again, I have so much going on that it just doesn’t seem like enough time, lol… We are moving into a house this July and getting married the following July…
So far we have:
-Venue for ceremony/reception/caterer
-DIY invitatations and table numbers
-JUST purchased our wedding bands on Jan 1st…totally was NOT planning to this early but the salesperson gave us such an awesome deal that we could not pass up. Plus, I hae a split shank ering and it has been soooo hard trying to find a band that looks right with it…. will post a pic once it comes in.
-Few decorations : Rbearer pillow, guestbook, etc…
-Decorator and DOC (selected but will put the deposit down this summer)
Ok, I think that’s it 😉
Good luck ladies!!!

@tj1985: I know how you feel. I finish graduate school about two weeks before the wedding!

TJ and AMA: ditto on the schooling! Though I’m just going back to get my certificate but it’s stressful enough full time schooling and full time work. The semester ends in April and a new one starts in May, I figure on May 12th school will have JUST began and the workload not heavy…
@Truelyblessed: same for the ring! I started scoping out gift certificates for Birks just a day after and ended up with 650 bucks while having paid 450 for them. Sweet deal. Low and behold 2 months later Briks has a 10% off everything sale… there I was buying my wedding band 1.5years too early.
… and I left a few things out: I bought my dress 6 days after the engagement. And I know what makeup artist I want.

@vmec: Oh that’s great that you got your dress. I am going to start trying on dresses in March. I know which one I LOVE, but have to see how it fits on “me” before I claim it, lol… You just make sure that you do not try on any more dresses because you might fall in love with another dress!!

@trulyblessed: yes you’re absolutely right. I made a post about “THE” dress. It was THE dress on the internet, loved it time and time again. Tried it on and was less than thrilled. “The Dress” turned out to be not a helluva lot different but different enough. And no more dress trying on for me!
BUUUT, my but is I’m chinese I get to go shopping for a custom made chinese dress now 😛
