  • Wedding: January 2027

Sept 1st! I am a little ahead though because we had an original date of March 17th then lost a baby in July of last year, so we were not up for planning a wedding for a while. But now we are back on track and very close to getting eveything done for our big day!

We’ve been engaged since Feb 2016 & I too can’t believe how fast time goes. 

We have hired all of our vendors, bought my dress, sent out save the dates, built our web site.

Still need to do:

– finalize design, floral, decor with planner

– meet with our officiant

– tasting is scheduled for April

– music selections and meet with our DJ

– grooms, groomsmen, dads tuxes

– MOB MOG dresses

– get my dress fitted

– hire hair/makeup for the girls (I have mine)

– invitations

 

QUESTION: Where can we save money at this late date? Tips for decor / floral? I don’t want things to get out of hand in this part. eeeeeek
