Holy crap, really?! I’m also a 6/16/12 bride. I’m so far behind as well, haha! Kind of doesn’t feel quite real yet though I will admit that I spent at least 45 minutes non-stop worrying about whether or not to hire a DOC last night, then I had anxiety dreams about it! But yay for June 16th brides!

I didn’t even realize today was the 6th month mark!  I guess I really need to get on addressing and sending those STDs!  I have done a lot so far, but I have kind of backed off recently since I have most of the big stuff done.                                          

Things I have done:                                                                                  

  • Reception and cermony place reserved                                                           
  • Dress purchased and in my possession              
  • Veil picked out and ordered            
  • Bridesmaid dresses picked out and half have been ordered  
  • Deposit down on photographer and had engagement pictures taken
  • Save-The-Date Cards ordered, but have not been sent out yet                          
  • Officant reserved                                                                              
  • Picked out a caterer and put down a deposit                                
  • Picked out a DJ                                                                
  • Ordered the cake                                                                  
  • Reserved a block of hotel rooms for out of town guests                    
  • Starting collecting vases for the center pieces (from Goodwill and the Salvation Army)  
  • Set up hair and makeup for the wedding day                                        
  • Finished registry (some people wanted to use this for Christmas, so we did it early)

Next things on my list:            

  • Pick out a place for the rehersal dinner                            
  • Order the groom’s and groom’s men’s attire                        
  • Reduce quest list by 10-20 people                                           
  • Order flower from Sam’s Club (we are making our own bouquets)     
  • Pick out and order the invitations                                              
  • Meet with caterer to figure out rentals                                           
  • Pick out ceremony musicians 

I have discovered that wedding planning is not a whole lot of fun, but a whole lot of work!

@galloway111: I’m DIY’ing flowers as well and probably going with Sam’s Club for roses, but not all my flowers. I know you don’t have Sam’s Club, but there are tons (seriously, TONS, of online flower wholesalers making it tough to decide on who to choose!) of online places out there. I compiled a list based on reviews from weddingbee, indiebride, and weddingwire that I’m currently doing research on to figure out which company would be best for the flowers that I need. If you’re interested, here’s the list that I’ve created:

I am on June 16th too!! I have ordered my dress, bridesmaids dresses, sent out Save-The-Date Cards, and currently in the process of making my own invitations. I am making most of the wedding decorations (including flowers) by myself, so it should be fun… Good luck with the wedding planning girls.
