Yay! I can’t believe it. My countdown is at 221 days! That’s insane. My 7 month mark is next Tuesday. I hope these next 7 months fly by!

I don’t have a whole lot planned for June, I have been procrastinating on my STD’s, so I need to get those out soon. I’m starting to look into invitations, stuff like that. Basically just trying to finalize decisions. I’ve got most of the big stuff done!

How about the rest of you?

WOHOO!!!! 221 days sounds better than 331 πŸ˜‰ My to-do list this month is pretty short, I’m hosting a bridal shower for my Maid/Matron of Honor and her wedding is on the 19th so it’ll be pretty busy!!! Our e-pics aren’t until July 1st, our photographer gets pictures back pretty fast, do you think late July is too late to send out STD’s??? I’m getting really nervous that it’s silly to even send them at that point. :/ I ordered some things to make pomanders with and will get started on those, and have chosen paper for our invites so I can get started on printing those out (what? you don’t plan on doing invites before STD’s? LOL). Girls are choosing dresses, but honestly with the other wedding this month we’re all pretty sidetracked.

Ok, I made a decision to not wait for our engagement pictures, we have a picture of us that I *LOVE* and we’ll use it. It’s one of those super cute pictures you always hate couples for having, oh yeah, we’ve got one πŸ™‚ So that’s what I’ll use and we’ll order them next week hopefully! WOW! I have kind of kicked my butt into full-on-wedding-mode right now, the whole “seven months to go” thing really got me going!!!

So excited!

We are:

Signing our *new* venue contract, finalizing registry, picking out our *new* Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, get ready for our engagment party! (in July), finding an officiant, looking into florists, save the dates, look into INVITATIONS!.

That’s all for now, but I’m likely to add more tasks as the month goes on.

YAY! We sent out our Save-The-Date Cards a few weeks ago, so I’ve been having a lot of fun watching the stat counter on our wedding website go up πŸ™‚ 

We’re working on centerpieces this month, hopefully – we’re thinking about doing silk flowers, so we’re gonna start researching that and seeing if we can find something we like!

We’re also taking two dance classes this month! We did our first one on Tuesday and it was SO much fun! We have another one on Monday and I can’t wait!

We got our biggest thing done so far: booking a photographer. We’re so excited to use him! I’m glad we did it now because somebody else already called wanting the same day and he had to say that we were penciled in. Yay! Haha, but really I’m hoping to get tons of cranes folded and our invitations hammered out.

@Ginger87:, @toffee Hi date twin πŸ™‚ 

Our DJ keeps asking us for our 100% top 10 songs, but I feel it’s too early to be tied in to that! I’m waiting for winter Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses to come around before heading that route. We’ve selected our invites and I guess it’s time to get off my butt and order them. We’re going to ask for a rsvp date of Nov 1.

Is anyone doing a honeymoon registry?
