I am excited for you and don’t stress, I really think we have more time than we think we do! @allyfally:
So far I have
-Venue Garrison, NY The Garrison 4-27-14
-Save the dates
-bridesmaids -90% of our registries are done
– 97% of our guest list
-We have done our amazing menu (all vegetarian including pizzas, ice cream bar, different gourmet pastas with many sauces, whipped cream and raspberry cake, Indian curry bar, mini grilled cheese and tomato soup, homemade hummus and homemade pita chips, fried top mashed potatoes, mozzarella and tomato salad skewers, quesadillas with sour cream and chips, berry bar, cranberry and romaine salad, mac and cheese, candy galore… it is so much easier and so delicious to be a vegetarian!)
-we have booked an awesome photographer
-I have the flower girls and ring bearer picked out
– I have the alcohol in place
– I have a firm idea of what my flowers will look like, but I haven’t booked a florist yet!
Things I still need to do… Buy a dress, buy shoes, buy a veil, buy a bridal purse, book a bus for my guests, write vows, buy a ketuba, book a salon for my bridesmaids, book a makeup and hair appointment for myself, I called to block off hotels but the woman who was supposed to send paperwork didn’t do it, I have to find bridesmaid dresses (I am looking for cotton candy blue) if anyone sees anything like this please let me know! I also need to pick out favors and invitations. picked out mason jars (is anyone selling these or do you know where to get them?) I also need a DJ… Looking at this list scares me!!! I hope I am not too far behind. How far in advance did everyone do these things?
