I too am getting married 8/25/12! 🙂

My dress is here! as well as my shoes (3 pairs) and a back-up short dress for the reception.

We have our photog and venue booked.

DJ, cake, caterer and rental companies are picked out but finalized yet.

Bridesmaid dress options are picked out and we’re shopping for them after the luncheon in February.

My fiance and I have several DIY aspects ready to go or in-progress, but still lots to do.

I’m so excited, the planning and preparations are so much fun! I’m just a little worried August is going to creep up faster than we know it.

Getting married 8 months from Christmas 🙂


I have:

Said Yes to the Dress; ordered on Black Friday for a 15% discount
Booked and paid deposits for: ceremony site, ceremony chairs, reception venue, ceremony musicians, dj, caterer, cake, transportation, and photographer.
Sent out our Save the Date/Christmas cards and finished our wedding website.

I’ve been stocking up on blue ball jars for centerpieces and getting photos together to display at the reception.

I have ideas for what I want for the bridesmaids, flower girls, and the guys, but plan on shopping with the girls late January/early February.

I have lots of ideas for DIY projects but haven’t started any yet. And I’m slowly working on invitation concepts/designs. Need to get all of my accessories and shoes yet. Need to register. I’m sure there is more!!
