  • Wedding: April 2015

Date twin!!! I’m the same as you! We pretty much have everything done…we are in the middle of picking out the music for the DJ. We have sent out invitations and now waiting on RSVPS so we can confirm the seating chart. We just received/bought our bridal party gifts! Some of the groomsmen still need to get measured and order their tuxes. Bridesmaids are still waiting on their dresses to come in…that’s about it! We just need to meet our vendors one last time before the wedding to make sure everything is correct and set for the wedding!!

Do you have anything else you need to get done?

That’s me!

All the big stuff is done and invitations are out.  Things that I’m working on are hair and makeup trials, dress fittings, programs, escort cards, marriage license…those are the big ones.  Oh and I’m just looping in a day of coordinator, which is really helping me to feel much more secure about everything.

T-2 months, really excited.

niawa41:  I posted in the other thread today but I will copy my post πŸ™‚

I don’t think we are forgetting anything.. yet! And I feel like we are in a good spot.

Venue – booked, food tasting is next thursday.. final numbers/little details are not due until 10 days before the wedding

Dress – had my first fitting last week.. legit fits like a dream! Bought my shoes a while ago (5 inches) as I didn’t want to hem the dress.. TBH I could have worn the dress I tried on back in Sept as the 12 fit perfect. I have lost 12-15 pounds since then and 6+ inches, but because its a corset, I have been so so lucky. All we are doing is adding bra cups and a bustle.. next fitting is March 24

Hair comb and earings – probably the only things I have left to find….

Bridesmaid dress- My Maid/Matron of Honor got hers (kind of didn’t tell her what to get nor color.. just said get something you want and feel comfy in.. we are just doing a MOH/BM – no other wedding party)

Officiant – came with the venue.. must submit our vows / ceremony set up 6 weeks prior.. so mid march!

Invitations– Bought from Love vs. Design, sent out a while ago and have over half of our RSVP’s back (Due March 27)

Transportation– Still need to figure this out.. small wedding party, doing a first look – hotel only 10 mins from venue.. will probably hire a black car service.

Grooms suit– Going next weekend to purchase FI’s suit

Cupcakes– Booked.. will choose flavors closer to the wedding (work friends wife)

Honeymoon – Booked, paid for – Hard Rock Cancun for 10 days

Photographer – 2nd thing we booked, e-shoot already done on Vday

Wedding rings – being custom made by the same guy who made my ering and will have them by April 1

Hair/make up – hair trial was last weekend, Maid/Matron of Honor is a makeup artist and doing it for free.. so I will do a trial sometime before the wedding

Decorations– ordered linens, candles, card box, table numbers and picking them all up tomorrow.. some smaller stuff left to be done / purchased

Guitarist – hired for ceremony, cocktail hour and first dance.. still need to finalize music choices

Bouqet/cenerpieces – Step dads gf is the manager of a floral shop so we thankfully get those for free.. meeting up in march to do mock-ups

Wedding License – picking it up on March 27

We still need to order candy for our candy bar (closer to the date so its fresh), write our day of schedule and our speech.

I have not felt stressed, pressure nor any anxiety yet.. this has probably been one of the easiest things I have ever done in my life.. I have legit loved planning this with no hiccups and will truly be sad when its done.. I’m really laid back though and have had no issues or conflicts with anything

So excited date twins πŸ™‚ I have the same date and posted on another thread as well. 

I still have my bridal shower/bachelorette to do March 21st… it is going to small just some close friends, and on the same day.  Have you had yours yet? 

Still waiting for my dress to come in though. I thought it was supposed to be this past week but now its next week.  I am nervous to try it on… its been long anticipated to try on the dress in my actual size… I am actually kind of worried it might be too small. lol.

Do you ladies have your dresses yet? I would be interested in seeing pics if you have them.

Ours is a destination wedding, so there is so much I can’t control and its driving me nuts! Mostly everything is done though. Still doing final counts and waiting on 40 rsvp cards…my mom and I are doing the flowers the day before, but we did our practice rounds so it should be good (see below)! I have my first dress fitting today and it looks like a bag so I’m worried!
