Wooo 9/24! πŸ™‚

So far we have:

Ceremony & reception venue (includes food, alcohol, cake, rentals, coordinator, etc.)

DJ

Photographer

Dress is in and bought my shoes

All Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are in

Save-the-dates sent out in Jan

Hotel rooms blocked

Late-night donut vendor (I am SO excited about this one!)

Just bought flipflops for our flipflop basket

Next on my immediate to-do list: Florist, officiant, hair/makeup, figure out invitation design with our graphic designer friend, finally decide if we’re having a string trio at the ceremony or not (definitely WANT, but a question of whether it makes sense w/ the budget…)

I also can’t believe that this month marks 6 MONTHS to go! Time has really flown by and I’m sure the next several months will go even more quickly. Can’t wait!

Our wedding has been a long time coming (we’re celebrating our 8th anniversary next weekend), and it’s a bit surreal that we’re less than 6 months away. So far we have the following done:

-Venue (along with all associated rentals and catering)

-Officiant

-Photographer

-DJ

-Officiant

-Cake

-Wedding dress (pattern and fabric purchased, just waiting on it to be sewn)

-Bridesmaid dresses

-Musicians booked for wedding ceremony (two close friends will be playing Beatles songs on accoustic guitar, I’m currently writing the song arrangments)

 

Things I am forgoing (partially based on lack of time, mostly based off of my laziness);

-Hair/make-up trials 

-Save the dates

-Professional engagement photos

-Seating charts

Good luck to everyone finalizing their planning!
